Fresh figs are available for two short seasons each year – June and then August through October. Make the most of the season and experiment with easy, impressive recipes like these honey grilled fresh figs with whipped goat cheese!
Bless the Godfather’s patience for walking around a grocery store with me. The produce section is especially dangerous as when I spot things I’m particularly fond of, like Brussels sprouts and fresh figs, I will happy dance and cheer out loud before I can stop myself. This situation played out rather recently when I spotted a box of fresh figs at one of the local markets and I had to have it! It was a two pound box, and I ate most fresh. I used the blog as an excuse to bring so many home though, so I needed to actually make a recipe. I ate these honey grilled figs too. They were so easy, and so delicious, I will make these for at least one party this year. Perhaps more. (more…)
No mayonnaise needed for this deviled egg recipe! Chimichurri deviled eggs are a unique deviled egg recipe perfect for parties and packed with loads of flavor and healthy fats!
It’s no secret that I grew up in the South… Florida… which is a funny mix of Southern and international influences, resulting in a very unique culture blend, especially when it comes to potluck parties! I noticed this most at church potlucks and picnics. We would usually bring a rice dish or salad, something easy for my mom to make with 3 girls around, and there would be the usual assortment of potluck dishes, and then at least 3 trays of deviled eggs. I loved them, and couldn’t wait to try each version.
Most people just brought a basic deviled egg, some would make them with the canned deviled ham, but sometimes, you’d see a version that was a little more unique. As an adult, my love of deviled eggs hasn’t diminished, and I recently set about actually writing down my basic recipe and creating a few fun variations to share. The chimichurri deviled eggs were the hands down top favorite among the few families I had test for me. (more…)
If regions of the United States were to be described in dips, this one would be the mid-Atlantic. Cheesy, with a mild kick, crab seasoning, and of course, a generous serving of crab baked right in, this crab jalapeno popper dip has football party written all over it. I’m really bad at following professional football if we’re going to be honest, but I do love a good dip at a halftime show party (that’s why you watch the big games too). (more…)

The first words out of my husband’s mouth when he tried these cheesy chicken fried ravioli were “These aren’t leaving the house, are they?” I believe this is what we term a “win” in easy party appetizer recipes. (more…)
I first heard of the totchos or tater tot nachos at a media event for the opening of a local grocery store, and my first thought was “YES!” because if you’re going to go all out for a cheat appetizer, why not use tater tots? Totchos started appearing at game day celebrations at our house because this is football, and family movie night, and casual party food. This recipe is basically the American cousin of Canadian poutin, with extra cheese, because ‘Merica. (more…)
