Foodie Friday: Tilapia and Quinoa

Hey all!

I’m a bit late with the Foodie Friday post today. I was soaking up this beautiful weather we’ve been having here in Philly. Sunny, breezy, in the late 60s…ahhhh. I hope it continues for the rest of the month. 🙂

Today, let’s focus on a nice healthy dinner meal – Tilapia and Quinoa with Feta and Cucumber. Continue reading


Foodie Friday: Chalkboard Cookies

I found another fun foodie project for everyone – chalkboard cookies! This is such a cute idea and is something great to make with the kiddos over the weekend. Look at these lovelies from Ashlee Marie: Continue reading

Foodie Friday: Apple Roses

More food to roll up!

I love when food is fun and creative to make. Last week was all about the cucumber roll ups. This week, let’s take it up a notch and make an easy dessert – Apple Roses.


I found this recipe from Cooking with Manuela and she even includes a short tutorial video:

Adorable aren’t they? I attempted to make these before and made the mistake of not cutting the slices as thin as possible. I got a little lazy and figured the warm lemon water mix would make it flexible enough. No my friend, follow the directions as so and it will come out perfect like these!

Just as the cucumber roll ups were versatile, so are these. You can use peach preserves instead of apricot or little to no confectioner’s sugar. Puff pastry however, is a mandatory base. Any other crust (i.e. pie crust) will not work as flexible or be as rectangular to cut evenly.

Have fun with this recipe and show these beauties off to your friends! When they are all aligned together on a serving dish, they are *so* pretty. 🙂

Bon appetit!

Foodie Friday: Cucumber Roll Ups

This week, I aim to please the vegetarians and vegans with a recipe I found via Pinterest. Clearly, I’m a carnivore – apparently also a dinosaur (*sarcasm*). Sidenote: What is the politically-correct term for “meat eater” anyway? In any case, these roll ups are great for everyone as well as a good choice for entertaining guests.

Foodie Friday: Honey Mustard Chicken Tenders

There’s no denying that many people are thinking about food this weekend. Particularly, chocolate. Well, I’m going to be part of the minority and talk about something else: Honey Mustard Chicken Tenders. Get your chocolate fix on Monday when all of it is 50-75% off. 😉

I reminisce on the few times I enjoyed honey mustard chicken wings in Buffalo at this wonderful place called Raymondo’s.  They were made like buffalo wings (of course) but with a sweet but slightly tart honey mustard glaze on top. I wish they could deliver all the way here in Philly. They were THAT good.
