Veggie Sandwich on Focaccia

As promised in my post last week on my homemade Rosemary Focaccia, here is the sandwich I enjoyed on my freshly baked bread – a veggie sandwich with arugula, tomato and avocado, along with some tasty slices of goat cheese. Can you say yum? The recipe is almost ridiculously simple, but I figured I’d share it…

Rosemary Focaccia

Welcome to Fall! Officially, that is… My favorite part of fall every year is that it kicks off the mother of all baking seasons. From pumpkin to apple, pecan pie to cookies for santa, we are now in the time of year when you don’t cringe to turn on the oven, and the time to…

Frozen Birthday Cake Outside

Tuesday Tip: Themed Birthday Cakes

Today is a slight break in the trend here on My Cup Is Full, as I wanted to share with you not a recipe per-se, but rather a tactic that has been serving me well as my niece is accustomed to her auntie making her birthday cakes, but the themes have shifted from “blueberry” or “strawberry” into “My Little…

Chèvre & Arugula Pasta Salad

Chèvre & Arugula Pasta Salad

Recently I have become obsessed with the cookbook The Kinfolk Table : Recipes for Small Gatherings… What a great read as well as great recipes! I’ve renewed it at the library as many times as I could, and then freaked out when I couldn’t find it to return… Turns out it had made its way into my…

Grilling Lessons with Coals

Lessons in Memphis: Grilling 101

Over this summer we made it out to Memphis to visit family, and I got a rundown on the time-honored summer tradition in my husband’s family of grilling. The patriarch of the family from Texas passed down his legendary brisket recipe (okay, so it involves grilling ALL day… I think I’ll stick to my crockpot version…

Creamy Chive Potatoes

Creamy Herb Potatoes

Today’s recipe is a great side for a crowd that is a step easier than mashed potatoes: Creamy Herb Potatoes. I’ve served this twice when I’ve had 8 people coming over for dinner and wanted a filling side that would be filling but not too much work for me. What I love about this dish is…

New Trend: Infused Oils Tasting Bar

A few months ago I got to visit my aunt who moved down South from Chicago this year, and I had such a wonderful time, took some fun pictures (with my then-brand-new camera), but I never told you about it because I did actually enjoy it as a vacation so there wasn’t a single new…

Cherry Crumble with Honey & Oats Recipe

Cherry Crumble with Honey & Oats

Phew! It’s been quite a couple weeks between travel, work, and intermittent periods of shamelessly watching every version or revision of Pride & Prejudice on film that exists (I have a problem, I know…). But I’m finally back in the kitchen and baking up some fun with cherries in the form of the easiest baked…

Slow Cooker Lemon Pork Recipe and how to substitute lemons for salt!

Slow Cooker Pork Tenderloin with Lemon Cream Sauce

First off, I would like to thank Sunkist for sponsoring today’s discussion and recipe, and inspiring me to try seasoning with lemon to reduce salt and not flavor! In exploring ways to avoid sodium, I decided to go for a slow cooker recipe, as the majority of “easy slow cooker recipes” I come across often include packets…
