These cookies are so stinking cute I almost hate to eat–

BAAAHAHAHAHA!!

Hooo boy I crack myself up.

Seriously. I loved stuffing these in my mouth. And when I say “them,” I mean roughly a dozen. Okay baker’s dozen. 82 at most.  They just go down so easy!

The only thing that gave me any pause while munching? What to call them. Because you see, not only are these cookies mini, but they also use mini M&Ms. So…mini MINI M&M peanut butter cookies?  Too much?  Too many M’s?

Green Chile Migas

Green Chile Migas: a cheesy, crispy, just-a-little-spicy skillet of breakfast heaven!Green Chile Migas: a cheesy, crispy, just-a-little-spicy skillet of breakfast heaven!

You’ve had one of those weeks.  One of those weeks when a day job turns into a day-and-night job.  Where the weekend is just as busy as the weekdays.  Where all you want are your pajamas and a trashy TV show and a hot plate of comfort food.

Me time?  How about…

MIGAS time!

That was me last week.  Ross was out of town for his job, while I was at the office until midnight, and the entire household was quite grumpy.  Even Delilah’s caterwauling sounded more plaintive than usual.  When Sunday rolled around, I knew what I had to do.  I had to have green chile migas.  There was literally no other option.  And boy did they hit a comfort-food-shaped spot.

Easy and cheesy, these Grilled Cheesy Garlic Potatoes are cooked in foil until tender and flavorful. They're the perfect BBQ side dish, and clean-up is a breeze!

By now, you have probably realized that we grill a lot, and there are few reasons for that. First of all, it tastes great! Also, grilling tends to be fast, and even though we love our food, spending hours in the kitchen after a day of work is a little much to ask for during the week. Additionally, it helps keep the cooking heat outside, and thus not diametrically opposed to the air conditioning. Not to mention it cuts down on the dishes, which is just the icing on the cake.

These Grilled Cheesy Garlic Potatoes, with all their flavorful, gooey goodness, are just one more reason to love grilling all the things. (more…)

Peach Bourbon Cocktail – The “Peachy Keen”

Summers are perfect for a Peach Bourbon Cocktail.  An easy simple syrup, a dash of booze, and you’ll be feeling Peachy Keen!Summers are perfect for a Peach Bourbon Cocktail. An easy simple syrup, a dash of booze, and you'll be feeling Peachy Keen!

I love peaches.  Love ’em.  I can’t wait for the first batch to show up in the stores, and I mourn it when they disappear from the shelves.  And canned peaches just don’t cut it (aside from spiced peaches at Thanksgiving, but that’s a different story).  But sinking your teeth into a nice juicy peach in the middle of the summer is just a sublime experience.  I might even give it the edge over peach pie (but just barely).  However, sometimes you want to enjoy that great peach flavor as you sit and relax at the end of the day, and this peach bourbon cocktail gives you that without having to worry about where to throw the pit.

I call it the Peachy Keen.
