Week 8 of the Reddit 52 Weeks of Cooking challenge gave me one of my favorite themes so far… TV Show Inspired. There were a lot of ways to go with this one. Most of the TV shows I watch have some kind of food theme running through them (shocker, right??). I wanted to try […]

Watermelon Granitas

Oh man. I am so happy it’s Friday. The website is up, it’s the weekend, and it’s time for a treat! With the disgustingly muggy weather we’ve had in So Cal this week, I needed something cold to cool down! This is where this granita came to life. Well, that and I have a half […]

New Digs!

Well folks… It finally happened. The Spicy Spatula finally has its own website. I couldn’t be more thrilled. This has definitely taken a lot of work, and especially from Mike, who is my IT master extraordinaire! There are definitely a few kinks to iron out here and there, but my little ole blog has it […]

This week has been freaking CRAY. I’ve had so much to get done, and Mike has too. So when I walk through the door and dinner is literally already waiting for us, it’s a reason to smile. I love using my crock pot. It’s so easy, and you can combine basically anything and you know […]

WARNING! The recipe below contains a butter sauce… it is NOT HEALTHY. However, it was freaking delicious. Week 7 of the challenge was themed “poaching”. I am not a huge fan of poached eggs, so I decided to focus more on the cooking technique here. Poaching is the act of gently cooking something in simmering […]

Peanut Butter Heaven

So about a month ago, I was thinking about Katie’s upcoming birthday. I knew I had to make something delicious for her. Katie is a Reese’s fiend, so with that in mind, I made this pie that is pure heaven. Chocolate. Reese’s. Oreo crust. Boom. Amazing. The recipe is directly from What the Flicka. I […]

Today is my best friend Katie’s birthday. This girl and I have been through so much together, and she’s just the coolest, funniest, most laid back chick out there. She’s the one I call when shit hits the fan. HAPPY BIRTHDAY WOMAN! LOVE YOU! Week 6 of the cooking challenge gave us the theme Jamaican. […]

I know what I’m about to say might sound a little weird. Maybe even a little crazy. But I’m going to ask that you reserve your judgement until the end of this post. *Deep breath. Sometimes…..I shop for produce….at the Dollar Store. DUN DUN DUN!!!!! OKAY. There. I said it. I can feel you judging […]
