Marinated Cucumber Salad

Marinated Cucumber Salad #easy #vegetarian #side

Do you ever pretend you're something you're not? Oh puhlease. Yes you do. When you've got the house to yourself, you don't turn the music way up and pretend you're the star of your own concert, complete with "air" microphone? Because let me tell you, I scream a mean Alanis Morissette when no one's around. I also play a rockin' bass guitar to Bon Jovi's Dead or Alive and Mariah Carey and I are like ... [ Read More ]

Fall Spiced Cranberry Muffins with Tangerine Glaze

Fall Spiced Cranberry Muffins with Tangerine Glaze - so moist and yummy! thekitchensnob.com

This is my new favorite cranberry muffin recipe! I've been fighting this fall-loving feeling for the last few weeks. Unfortunately, the beginning of fall doesn't only make me think of apple pie and beautiful falling leaves. It also makes me think of things like: the Polar Vortex of 2013 [shudders], raking those beautiful leaves, salt-encrusted cars, expensive heating bills, and racing around town ... [ Read More ]

Breakfast Muffins With Sausage, Cheddar & Green Onions

Breakfast Muffins with Sausage, Cheddar & Green Onions - The Kitchen Snob

Chilly fall mornings. The smell of roasted coffee. Heated blankets. Fuzzy socks. The smell of savory breakfast muffins drifting up the stairs. This is the time of year when I always want something warm and comforting. I'm usually wearing my most comfortable pajamas as I lazily saunter around the house. Who says PJs have to match??? Thankfully, my husband loves me even though my fall and ... [ Read More ]

Failed Recipes and Foodie Fumbles

Failed Recipes of a Foodie #foodblogging #blogging

I've been blogging for a little over a year now. My blogiversary came and went and I did not receive a surprise party thrown in my honor from The Food Network. They probably just got busy. I'm supposed to be this big ol' food snob, up here in the clouds (looking cute in a Vera Wang apron), making magical meals in my tiara like a Foodie Princess. But no. I'm in my circa 1986 kitchen, wearing ... [ Read More ]

Easy Greek Quinoa With Roasted Tomatoes

Easy Greek Quinoa with Roasted Tomatoes #glutenfree #vegetarian #quinoa

I could talk for days about this Easy Greek Quinoa recipe. I'm lying. Some days, the writing well is dry and for the life of me I can't come up with fascinating on-the-edge-of-your-seat stories about food except "nom nom nom". So, I don't have much to say. Except that some family members might think I've gone off the deep end with my whole "no sugar" nonsense and now that I'm eating ... [ Read More ]

What is Quinoa And Why You Should Be Eating It

What is Quinoa and Why You Should Be Eating It

Have you ever been late to a party? This can be a good thing - ya know, fashionably late. But sometimes, you show up late and everyone is already grouped up in circles and you feel like an outsider. I'm pretty late to the quinoa party. I'm aware. It's awkward. Just don't stare or make eye contact with me. Be cool. What Is Quinoa? Quinoa (pronounced "keen-wah") is from the species ...

5 Things I Learned While On A Sugar Free Diet

5 Things I Learned While On A Sugar Free Diet - thekitchensnob.com #sugarfree #fedupchallenge

I'm back on the sugar train and it's a bumpy ride. To my surprise, I didn't down 2 candy bars and 4 cupcakes immediately following the last day of my sugar free diet. I introduced sugar back into my diet s l o w l y. I was afraid I might feel sick if I overdid it. And I was sort of right. ... [ Read More ]

Send Chocolate, Bread, or Die – Day 8 of the Fed Up Challenge

Follow me on the #FedUpChallenge! Day 8 of the Fed Up Challenge - #thekitchensnob.com #sugarfree

It's Day 8 of the Fed Up Challenge, a challenge in which it was my own decision not to eat any added sugar for 10 whole dang days. I also decided, without being forced at gunpoint, to not eat any white starches (flour, rice, and potatoes) and now, that I'm 8 days in, I'm wondering what in the heck I was thinking. It's true that after my rough start, I've been feeling pretty good the last 6 ... [ Read More ]
