My Inspiration . . .

I've always had a love for baking, but it wasn't until I was in college that I had a desire to learn how to cook. In 2009, I decided to start my own cooking blog so I could access my recipes from anywhere, and was born.

I love trying new recipes and finding ways to make them healthier & happier on the hips! I love everything about food: the taste, the smells, the presentation, the experimenting, etc. I love to entertain, so I figured this was a great way to bring people together. Hope you enjoy trying out some of the recipes. Happy cooking!

Mini Caprese Skewers

{ Prep Time: 15 mins / Difficulty: Easy }
1 cup balsamic vinegar
1 (10oz) container cherry or grape tomatoes
mini mozzarella cheese balls (could use regular sized ball of cheese, and cut into bite-sized pieces)
fresh basil leaves, rinsed and cut in half (if large) 
salt & pepper, to taste
1. In a small saucepan, bring balsamic vinegar to a boil, then lower heat to medium and simmer until it's the consistency of very thin maple syrup, about 10 minutes. Pour into a bowl and let cool.
2. Meanwhile, cut tomatoes in half. Thread a mini mozzarella cheese ball, basil leaf (fold in half if too large) and a tomato half onto a tooth pick. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Sprinkle with salt & pepper, then drizzle cooled balsamic reduction on top.
