Basil Chicken with Sun Dried Tomato & Asiago Creme and Crispy Prosciutto

One of my favorite restaurants here in town has this wonderful pasta dish that features crispy prosciutto on the top. Now I can't eat the pasta, but the prosciutto? That's another story.
If you've never had prosciutto, you're missing out hugely. It's not bacon. It's more ham-like. It's a slow cured, bone-in pork leg; the good part of the leg-- the meaty rear thigh. It's salty and absolutely savory and has a wonderful texture thanks to ample fat.

Mint Chocolate Chip Frozen Custard

I am a little late to the summer party, but hey-- I figured there are still a few warm days left in the fall, and let's be honest: no one turns down mint chocolate chip frozen custard, no matter what the temperature outside is.

Sweet & Smoky BBQ Meatloaf

With fall coming, I figured I'd do a hearty recipe for you all. Well, that and I had a terrible craving for meatloaf a few days ago. I decided on a barbecue meatloaf, and the results couldn't have been better!

Pumpkin Pie Frozen Custard

Pumpkin pie frozen custard. Low carb pumpkin pie frozen custard. Need I say more? This creamy dream of a dessert is located at the intersection of summer and fall. 

Low Carb Hot Fudge Sauce

What good is an ice cream sundae without a heaping helping of stick, sweet hot fudge sauce? Not a sundae at all, if you ask me. Lucky for you, you've got just the thing to make your next sundae a super terrific happy hour (anyone remember that Seinfeld episode?)

Fried Cheese Curds

If you've never been to Wisconsin or Canada, you've never had real fried cheese curds. OK, maybe that's not true, but on a serious note-- if you haven't had them, you need to. Cheese curds aren't the same as the fried cheese sticks you get at your neighborhood bar and grill. They aren't even the same as the cheese on a stick you get at the county fair. No, sir-ee Bob-- they're in a game all their own.

Jalapeno Bacon Cheeseburger Soup

What's a girl to do when she wants a bowl of soup, eh? Get of her butt and make it. That's exactly what I did, and boy did it come out AMAZING! 

A local restaurant here serves this cheeseburger soup that's out of this world. I decided to try my hand at it, but figured I'd add a dash of spice to jazz it up even more. The results? I mean... look at it!
