Cinnamon rolls – I like cinnamon rolls. Well, there are a few caveats – they need to be warm, and they need to be fluffy and moist –  like these Cinnabon Copycat Cinnamon Rolls that Tammy makes – actually much butter than Cinnabon and simply divine. Tammy redeemed my cinnamon roll aversion. I think I’ve just had too many bad ones from grocery store bakeries that were just so sub-par that I forgot how good they can be.

However, even with the fabulous Tammy recipe, I think that sticky buns still beats out cinnamon rolls for me! At least these honey caramel pecan sticky buns. Read more ›

Year One: Keep Calm and Bake On (Giveaway!)

Keep Calm and Bake On

Keep Calm and Bake On

It’s crazy to look back and think that Tammy and I have been blogging at FoodApparel.com for one year now (here’s our first post – the Gigantic Molten Lava Chocolate Cake).

Giant Molten Chocolate Cake (Classic Style)

We had talked about starting a blog together long before that. And we just never seemed to have the time. And finally, despite still not having the time, we took the plunge anyway.

You know what? The time thing hasn’t changed at all. This last year has been a roller coaster for both of us. Read more ›

Greek Quinoa Salad: Healthy Style

Greek Quinoa Salad at FoodApparel.com

So, I guess I’m on a little bit of a Quinoa kick lately! It’s just such a nice light grain, and it can substitute from anywhere to rice to pasta dishes. Very versatile, I say!

Anyway, I was hosting a baby shower a couple of weeks ago and was in charge of some of the lunch items. I had this Greek Salad that I was throwing together and I thought, hey, why not throw some quinoa into the mix. The birth of a delicious and nutritious Greek Quinoa Salad. Read more ›

Black Bean Soup: Classic Style

Black Bean Soup at FoodApparel.com

Beans are kind of awesome. But they often get overlooked. They are a great source of protein which is a huge plus since the kiddos are sometimes picky about eating meat at young ages. Oh, and did I mention they are a lot less expensive than meat? Yes, a win all around.

Anytime we have a Hispanic dish served, I pretty much always have a side of black beans. Sometimes straight up plain does the trick, or throwing in a little bit of garlic and onion can be a quick, savory way to present them.

Well today I wanted to share another awesome way to enjoy black beans, and this time as the center of attention in this Black Bean Soup. It’s healthy, it’s yummy, and it comes together pretty easily. It’s one of those soups that can be enjoyed all year long. Give it a try! Read more ›

Well, Spring officially begun a few days ago! Blessed day! You know, we really didn’t have that bad of a winter here in my neck of the woods, but I still appreciate the idea that warmer and sunnier days are ahead. We’ve been a little cooped up lately.
