Beer Battered Asparagus with Greek Yogurt Tarragon Dipping Sauce

Tomorrow's the big day Steve and Elizabeth at Twin Cities Live will be helping me cook up my Finnegan's Beer Battered Asparagus with Greek Yogurt Tarragon Dipping Sauce for a chance to win a trip to Ireland! Do I have the cooking chops? Do I have the passion? Do I have the cutest hair best recipe!? The producers want to know why I love to cook and what gets me in the kitchen, I think both questions were answered when I revealed the news to you, showing you my adventurous, experimental kitchen recipes and my love of gathering people around the table!

Spaghetti Pie + acoupla shots of Florida Beaches

Today I'm unapologetically sharing another recipe similar to a recent recipe using the same ingredients of pasta, ground meat and cheese, but replaced lasagna noodles with spaghetti noodles, amped up the vegetable quotient in hopes of tricking little people's palates into submission adoring vegetables, and baked the lot into crispity, crunchity edges that not even the pickiest eater can deny as delicious. There are no apologies here, baby!

Breakfast Pie {featuring Donovan's Pottery}

It's Easter Weekend. Things are happening in my kitchen. There are times when I get these bursts of inspiration to turn ingredients that might stump you into allowing them to turn rancid otherwise go unused, like a gigantic box of no-name cornflakes I thought were a good idea at Aldi or the Cost-co sized jar of roasted peanuts that may or may not have been sitting in my pantry for a minimum of 36 months. Now the cornflakes are atop a buttery bed of eggy hash browns and the peanuts ground into my own homemade peanut butter - have you ever done that? Genius!
