Game Day Recipe Round-Up and Giveaway Winners!

Football all day Saturdays, Sundays, and Monday nights, basketball (when there’s not a lockout), soccer, the World Series for baseball, and most importantly, San Jose Sharks hockey games… There are so many games going on this time of the year and not enough time to watch everything! But we make time. Because watching sports is fun. Unfortunately, I never really watch basketball though (sorry to disappoint all you basketball fans and my best friend). But no matter which sport, what I love more is the company you’re with when you watch the games. And what I love almost just as much are the snacks and food made to sustain you through the 2 plus hours of the game. Ok, ok, I may like the food more than the games. Except Sharks games. But in any case, whether you are a die-hard super sports fan or a I-have-no-idea-what-is-going-on-during-this-play viewer, here is a round [Continue Reading…]

  Have I mentioned how much I love Fall? And my affinity for pumpkin-flavored things? Oh, I haveee? Well, here’s one more for the list: pumpkin snickerdoodles!

Thai Iced Tea and the Giveaway Winners!

About a month ago (wow, time flies!), I wrote a guest post for my friend, Shellina, over at The Frugal Flambe. Now, that same pitcher of Thai tea I made for the post is definitely gone, and I’ve been craving it for, oh, about a month. Not to mention that within this time frame Shellina and her family have gained a new addition to their family! Their new little bundle of joy, Abigail, is so beautiful! Congratulations, Shellina! Also, congratulations to the three winners of the coffee cup giveaway: Sunni, Sarah Michelle, and Jhenifer! Please email me at for more information on how to receive your prize! Thanks to everyone that entered! BUT WAIT, as a consolation prize (because I truly wish I could give everyone one of these awesome mugs), here is a 10% off coupon code for any order at Dawn’s Etsy Shop! So if you want one (or [Continue Reading…]

M&M, Chocolate Chip, Walnut Cookies

After reading Jessica’s cookie post from her blog How Sweet It Is, I could not get cookies out of my mind! So first, I used her recipe to make Heath Bar and walnut cookies: They were so good, but I was still dreaming of her cute, colorful cookies. So then I made another batch just like hers–with M&Ms: Then, I decided to throw in the kitchen sink and made M&M, chocolate chips, AND walnut cookies: I threw in walnuts at the end to convince myself that they were “healthy”, therefore making it ok to eat more of them. Um, I think I ate about 5 times as many cookies I should have eaten. Whoops! Yes, I went a little cookie crazy, but I am not sorry at all! At all. My roommates even ate the batch that overcooked because I forgot about them in the oven. Even though I told them not [Continue Reading…]

Drumroll, please… So Life Tastes Like Food has recently taken the big step and moved from to being self-hosted. I can do so much more with the site now!
