Cubed, Hacked, and Delicious

My absolute FAVORITE foodie blog (I have absolute FAVORITE other blogs, usually that relate to fashion and interior design) is Smitten Kitchen.  The author, Deb, is absolutely charming and endearing in her delivery, she has an adorable child whom she sometimes shares photos of, and she cooks and bakes things that I could only dream of making.

I decided to try her cubed, hacked caprese today, for our Saturday football appetizer, and it did not disappoint.  I love all things related to tomatoes and cheese (especially fresh mozzarella) and this recipe is no exception.

That's the salad all mixed up.  YUM.  I decided to toast some french bread, then drizzle it with olive oil and rub it with garlic, before piling the amazing mixture on top.

The BF informed me that, while he found this treat to be tasty, he couldn't feel it clogging his arteries and, therefore, it doesn't count as football food.  Fair enough.  The BF also informed me that I spent too much money on cheese for this recipe ($15 is hardly too much for fresh mozzarella, I say).  Those opinions aside, the BF loved it as much as I did and this recipe will definitely be kept in my ever-growing recipe collection.  Thanks to Smitten Kitchen for introducing me to such an amazing recipe!

Shoes!  Well, it's Saturday.  Which means two things:  slippers and football, so . . .

GO IRISH!  And how stinkin' cute is Arnie, seriously?  She is the commander of cute.


  1. Hey Darling,
    Just finally had a chance to read your blog!

    I do have this memory of a young girl at my house having difficulty eating anything other than mac and cheese, though..... :)
    Love ya!

  2. Isn't that the truth, Laura!! It's hard for me to believe, sometimes, what Ashley now cooks (and bakes)!!

  3. This looks absolutely DELISH!!!! And Arnie is definitely adorable. :-)
