Taco Bites

I promised y’all a tailgate recipe, did I not? If you’re not a sports person, no worries, these are just as tasty eaten on the couch during a serious Netflix binge 😉 This recipe is inspired by an appetizer I had at a wedding this summer that I knew I […]

Watermelon & Feta Bites

Happy Thursday! I’m sharing an easy recipe that makes a great summer appetizer. I made these watermelon and feta bites for a brunch this past weekend. They are crazy simple to put together, but look impressive! And a great way to highlight summer produce with juicy watermelon and fresh basil. […]

Creamiest Guacamole on lexeats.com

The Creamiest Guacamole Ever

So this isn’t a ground-breaking kind of recipe. I realize guacamole is pretty popular and one recipe doesn’t vary too much from the other. That being said, I’m pretty proud of my guacamole recipe. I’ve perfected it over the years and through a happy accident, found the trick to making […]

Caprese Bruschetta on lexeats.com

Caprese Crostini

It’s finally starting to feel like summer and I am not mad about it! One of my favorite things about summer is tomatoes, which means caprese salad! The combination of fresh, juicy tomatoes (bonus points if they’re heirloom), creamy mozzarella cheese, rich olive oil, tangy balsamic and basil is probably […]

Kentucky Beer Cheese

If y’all know anything about me, you know I love cheese. All kinds of cheese. Did you know there is such a thing as beer cheese? I grew up eating this delicious dip pretty much every day as an after school snack. It wasn’t until I went to college in […]

Five Steps to a Bomb Cheese Plate

You should know by now that I have a thing for cheese. My first job was at a cheese store, so one could say I know a thing or two about fromage (French for cheese – see, I know things!) I could make a cheese and charcuterie plate for dinner […]

Cookie Butter Baked Brie

Y’all. I can’t even with this one. So it goes a little something like this.. I win one of those Instagram contests that you tag a friend to enter (exciting, right?!) and receive a jar of this deliciousness in the mail. I eat a spoonful then put in the cabinet. […]

The Easiest Three Ingredient Muffin on LexEats.com

Three Ingredient Sour Cream Mini Muffins

This is so easy it shouldn’t even count as a recipe. My mom has made sour cream muffins ever since I can remember. They literally only take three ingredients and are the perfect complement to any meal. They are light and buttery; it’s hard to just eat one. I love […]

Kentucky Hot Brown Pinwheels

One of the many great Kentucky food items is the hot brown. Originating from Louisville’s Brown Hotel, this open-faced sandwich with a rich mornay sauce is a must-try if you’re visiting Kentucky. I needed to come up with an appetizer for another girls night and decided to try and replicate […]

Roasted Corn & Black Bean Salsa from LexEats.com

Roasted Corn & Black Bean Salsa

I love the combination of corn and beans. In college, one of our go-to “meals” consisted of dumping a can of corn and a can of beans in a bowl, mixing it up and dipping with tortilla chips. So, for girls night (TGIT – amirite??) I wanted to upgrade this […]
