Dijon Balsamic Dressing Dijon Balsamic Dressing By Cooking with Mel 04/05/13 13:00 Nick decided that before he departed for Afghanistan that he would try a last ditch effort to get in shape. So we were attempting to put spinach in everything we ate for what seemed like weeks. When it came down to crunch time {both to get healthy and to...
Spinach & Sun Dried Tomato Frittata Spinach & Sun Dried Tomato Frittata By Cooking with Mel 04/03/13 13:00 Breakfast and brunch around here are a big deal, especially on the weekends. During the week Nick usually scoots out the door with a mug of coffee and a lunchbox full of leftovers, but Saturday and Sunday are a different story. Usually Nick waits until...
The Perfect Hard Boiled Egg The Perfect Hard Boiled Egg By Cooking with Mel 03/29/13 12:00 I don’t know about you but I love egg sandwiches. I have a particular love for hard boiled eggs layered on top of toasted bread, American cheese, salt and pepper with a drizzle of mustard…. the regular stuff, not that fancy Dijon mustard. I will go through...
Vodka Spiked Spaghetti Vodka Spiked Spaghetti By Cooking with Mel 03/22/13 12:00 I don’t know about you but I happen to love simple recipes that pack a punch. For instance, pasta is an easy dinner any weeknight. I was not one of those kids that loved pasta growing up either in fact I detested it. However, every week, without fail, my...
Hearty & Creamy Tomato Soup w/ Grilled Cheese Croutons Hearty & Creamy Tomato Soup w/ Grilled Cheese Croutons By Cooking with Mel 03/20/13 12:00 I {sometimes} have a serious addiction to QVC and their food-related products. Often times you could find me sitting in front of the television on a Sunday afternoon watching In the Kitchen with David. I happen to love David. He has a great attitude and...
Mini Stuffed Sweet Peppers Mini Stuffed Sweet Peppers By Cooking with Mel 03/18/13 12:00 I think it is interesting to make something I once would snub. After I started this blog I knew that my journey would take me to crevices of the food world that would be uncomfortable and require great dedication to control my gag reflexes. Wondering what...
Reuben Soup Reuben Soup By Cooking with Mel 03/13/13 12:00 I think it’s safe to say that winter is pretty much over in Northern Virginia, if we can even claim that it started. I would argue winter does not exactly happen here – a dozen cold days doesn’t equate to winter. Sometimes I wish the epicenter of government...
Cheesy Reuben Dip Cheesy Reuben Dip By Cooking with Mel 03/11/13 12:00 Soon it will be St. Patrick’s Day. I never really got into the whole drink green beer and party in the street scene. It just was not my thing. Don’t get me wrong, I may have had a couple of shots of whiskey while wearing some ridiculous green hat or over-sized...
Sage & Gorgonzola Cheese Puffs Sage & Gorgonzola Cheese Puffs By Cooking with Mel 03/08/13 13:00 It has definitely been a hectic couple of weeks. Honestly, I don’t even know what happened to the month of February. All of a sudden it was here, Punxsutawney Phil was popping out of his hole, Valentine’s rolled on by and BAM here we are in March! What...
Cheddar Cheese Puffs Cheddar Cheese Puffs By Cooking with Mel 02/27/13 13:00 I used to be a chocolate addict. Really, I could eat it by the pound. Well, maybe that’s a slight exaggeration, but you know what I’m saying. However, the last couple of years have been a completely different story. While I still have the occasional need...
Enchilada Casserole Enchilada Casserole By Cooking with Mel 02/25/13 13:00 I don’t know about you, but I happen to love Mexican food. Having lived close enough to throw a rock across the Mexican border, I became used to getting good, quality and authentic Mexican cuisine whenever I wanted. I remember when we first moved to Sierra...
S'more Pretzel Bites S'more Pretzel Bites By Cooking with Mel 02/22/13 13:00 Who doesn’t love a good snack? I, for one, cannot say no to a delicious looking bite-sized morsel of goodness. However, I am not one to choose the sweets over the savory most times. I would rather have cheese, bologna and crackers instead of candy. However,...
Tuscan Sun Dried Tomato Alfredo Ravioli Tuscan Sun Dried Tomato Alfredo Ravioli By Cooking with Mel 02/21/13 13:00 The last few days have been a whirlwind. Since Nick and I bought our house our parents have been encouraging us to come pick up some of our belongings from their homes. Time was beginning to become tight because Nick’s parents recently built a new house,...

This day is not limited to the romantic type of love, either; cram your heart with love from your family and friends today, too! Because I know many of you will be super busy today...
Heart Shaped Pizza Heart Shaped Pizza By Cooking with Mel 02/13/13 13:00 Oh boy. Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. Is it a total cliché that my heart flutters with excitement about all of the flowers and chocolates, and all of the diamonds that float around during this particular hallmark holiday. Oh, don’t worry. I am not one of...

Valentine's Day Buttons Valentine's Day Buttons By Cooking with Mel 02/11/13 18:01 It seems like this year is already getting by me. I thought life would slow down a bit after we settled on the house, but I was surely wrong. It seems like we’re always on the go and something or another is popping up and demanding our attention. Owning...
Weekend Breakfast Roundup Weekend Breakfast Roundup By Cooking with Mel 01/26/13 17:11 People tell me breakfast is the most important meal of the day, which is why I routinely find myself rummaging through the refrigerator for leftover Swedish meatballs or pizza and, let's not forget, macaroni and cheese. You see, if this is the meal that...
Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins By Cooking with Mel 01/11/13 16:59 Is it too late to say Happy New Year? I hope not.

We added a new fur baby to our...
