Bacon “Lettuce” and Peach Sandwich with Basil Mayo

Bacon Lettuce and Peach Sandwich with Basil Mayo | The Suburban Soapbox

Sweet peaches are the perfect stand-in for tomatoes in this remake of everyone's favorite BLT.  Plain Jane lettuce is also replaced with peppery arugula to make one deliciously easy summer sandwich! I was smacked in the face the other day with the harsh reality that summer is not going to last forever.  What I mean is....I was, literally, smacked in the face with a decorative witch at the grocery store.  Yep...I walked right into it while rushing to the laundry detergent aisle and was … [Read more...]

Easy Classic Lobster Rolls

Classic Lobster Rolls 6

Skip the overpriced restaurant version and make your own Lobster Rolls at home.  A much more cost-effective way to enjoy this classic New England treat.  Lightly dressed in lemon mayo and melted butter, served on a toasted roll and sprinkled with chives....this is what summer is all about. I LOVE the beach.  I, seriously, think I was born with sand between my toes.  There's nothing more relaxing to me than a beach vacation.....the food, the sand, the ocean and a good book.  But mostly the … [Read more...]

Quinoa, Oatmeal and Raisin Bread

Quinoa, Oatmeal and Raisin Bread

I don't do the whole New Year resolution thing.  I feel like they are just doomed from the start.  Instead, I prefer to use January to think of goals I would like to achieve for the year.  Not large, lofty goals....just things that could enhance my life and possibly help to create some good habits. I know others of you do make resolutions and are surprisingly good at keeping them.  I had several requests for some healthier recipes in the New Year and so I made a goal to eat more healthily … [Read more...]

The Twelve Days of Cookies – Snickerdoodle Sandwich Cookies with Eggnog Buttercream

Snickerdoodle Sandwich Cookies with Eggnog Buttercream

When I was little, I remember seeing Eggnog in the refrigerator every Christmas.  What I don't remember is ever seeing anyone drink it. Ever. It did end up disappearing, someone was drinking it....I know that someone was not me.  Eggnog just didn't sound very tasty. Until today I never tried it, my husband and I had a conversation about this just last week.  And we both agreed Eggnog doesn't sound like something that was on our bucket list.  But then I started to wonder.....maybe we were … [Read more...]

Melt Down Grilled Cheese Review

Grilled Cheese

If they put fruit or vegetables on it, it negates the calories in the cheese and butter....right?  I'm going with this theory because I just discovered THE BEST grilled cheese establishment EVER!!! A friend of mine met me for lunch at a new place called Melt Down.  It's located in Wayne, PA, if you're familiar with Wayne it took over the old Peace A Pizza building.  There's another location in North Wales.  They have tons of grilled cheese sandwiches, two different soups, a signature salad … [Read more...]
