BBQ Sloppy Joe Bread Bowls are a fun twist on classic sloppy joes. Made with ground beef, veggies, barbecue sauce, and spices. Piled-high in a bread bowl and topped with cheddar cheese.

Heart-Shaped Brookies are a festive and fun treat to make for Valentine’s Day. Made with chocolate chip cookie dough, brownie batter, and a sprinkling of M&M’s. These cute brookies will make anyone feel extra special!  Do you dial up Cupid for Valentine’s Day?  We do, but we tend to keep him in the singing telegram distance. Mr. B and I always order pizza, watch a movie and just relax. Nothing crazy like buying roses, extravagant gifts, etc.  However, now that Charlie is older I LOVE to add a few special treats to celebrate the day. Over the past few years I’ve put together ..read more

Perfect for game day or weeknight dinner!  Are you a fan of hot sauce?  I didn’t try hot sauce of any kind until I met Mr.B.

Easy Cottage Cheese Fettuccine Alfredo is a healthy-ish twist of the classic Alfredo sauce. Packed with protein and simple to make! Cottage cheese is having a hot moment.  As a kid growing up we ate a lot of cottage cheese whether as a side, stuffed in lasagna or garnished on top of salads. In fact, when I was in college I used to top tomato slices with cottage cheese for a low-carb snack.  It warms my heart and belly to see cottage cheese being used in so many different ways. A few of my favorite ways of using cottage cheese I’ve shared on the blog – Cottage Cheese Blueberry W ..read more

Chocolate Cookie Cups with Whipped Peppermint Cream are an easy and sweet treat to make for the holidays! I’m here for all the peppermint flavored desserts during the holidays. If you’ve been a long time reader of The Curious Plate you know that I don’t like ice cream. However, I WILL dive into a bowl of peppermint ice cream (extra chunky with the peppermint, please). There’s something about peppermint that makes me want to shimmy. Anyway, I’ve made a few desserts over the years that incorporate Mrs. Peppermint – Double Chocolate Peppermint Brookies, Peppermint Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars, Pep ..read more
