Easy Homemade Guacamole

homemade guacamole_twine and braids

Quick and easy homemade guacamole recipe coming your way!  Confession: I only recently started enjoying guacamole, or avocados for that matter.  I’ve really been trying to love them but its been an acquired taste for me.  Guacamole was something I was able to get behind because there’s typically chips involved.  Still trying to figure out […]

No-Bake Chocolate Toffee Cookies

No Bake Cookies_Twine And Braids

Guys, it’s been hot.  You know, that stereotypical humid, sticky, can’t step outside with out sweating, summer in New Jersey hot.  You would think since I’ve lived here my whole life I would be prepared, but I never am.  It’s as if every year, as I’m flipping the calendar from June to July, beads of […]

Boozy Peach Ice Pops

Boozy Peach Ice Pops_Twine And Braids

It’s that time of year when the days are getting longer, air is getting warmer and the fruity cocktails are flowing.  And I’m here to add another drink to your rotation that is so delish it may last past the summer months.  With the warmer weather I tend to go for drinks that are not […]

Kale Salsa with a Green Juice Cocktail

Salsa and Green Cocktail_Twine And Braids

Guys, get your grocery lists ready.  I am bringing you two easy recipes just in time for the weekend – a kale salsa made in the blender and a refreshing green juice cocktail.  Now those that know me, know I am not a big fan of most dips or condiments.  Seriously, I eat my salads […]

Chicken Pot Pie

Have you ever come across a recipe on pinterest or instagram and you thought it looked too good to be true?  That if you attempted to make it yourself it would never look as professional?  Everyday?  Yep, me too.  I had that same feeling when I spotted this chicken pot pie recipe from Julie of Lovely Little Kitchen, […]

Lemon Bars

Lemon Bars_Twine And Braids

My Grandma’s birthday falls on the day before St. Patrick’s Day.  So naturally, when we celebrate the theme is always shamrocks, corned beef and Irish soda bread.  Typically my offering of dessert follows suit with something sweet that requires green food dye, inevitably staining your teeth.  This time around I decided to switch things up […]

Valentine’s Day Cookies

Valentines Day Cookies_Twine And Braids

Valentine’s Day is tomorrow and I thought it was the perfect excuse to bake up something sweet.  I’ve always found sugar cookies with royal icing to be almost too pretty to eat and have been dying to try out this icing technique for myself.  As a first timer, my cookies didn’t come out quite as […]

Winter Citrus Cocktail

If we’re being honest, when I think “winter cocktail” I usually think of something along the lines of an eggnog or a mulled wine.  Maybe a chocolate martini garnished with a candy cane or even a hot toddy.  But a grapefruit concoction? -usually not on the top of my holiday drink list.  This winter citrus, […]

Sweet & Salty Stove Top Popcorn

I have strong feelings about popcorn.  It’s always been a staple in my household and is more than just the occasional movie food.  Growing up my mom would pop a big bowl, top with salt and mix in some raisins – the perfect simple snack.  Freshly popped popcorn is a blank canvas to be dressed […]

Apple Muffins

Fall is in full swing around here and these Apple Muffins are the perfect breakfast treat for a chilly morning.  We recently went to an orchard and naturally came home with more apples than two people can handle, so I’ve been in the kitchen thinking up ways to use them.  These muffins have chunks of […]
