Ultimate Linguine with Clams

This is HANDS DOWN my favorite dish. Literally, if I were on death row and I had to choose my last meal, this would definitely be it. I would want it to be this specific recipe though, because this is the ultimate recipe for linguine with clams. I don’t actually plan on being on death row ever in my life Read More

Honey Garlic Drumsticks with Fresh Pepper Relish

This chicken is SO JUICY, you’ll freak. This recipe makes 6 drumsticks and it would be totally understandable (and acceptable) if you decide to eat them all yourself. I love making chicken drumsticks not only because they are delicious, but they’re also so inexpensive! The price makes these a total no-brainer and the flavor will make these a staple in Read More

How to Make Juicy Chicken Breasts: The Casual Brine

I used to hate cooking chicken breasts. It seemed impossible to have them turn out anything but dry without marinating them for a long time. So, what about when dinner is supposed to be on the table and I forgot to marinate the chicken? Enter, the casual brine. I call it the casual brine because it only takes 20 minutes Read More

Fried Bologna Sliders with Pickle Dijonnaise

Let me be clear- these are indulgent af. This is not one of those recipes that you put into the weekly rotation. No. You make these for a special occasion (say, the Super Bowl) and you enjoy every bite of these warm, salty, melty, saucy, delicious sliders and then you have a salad the next day. I know what some Read More

Greek Chicken with Tzatziki

I am submitting myself to relentless teasing by posting this recipe. Why, you ask? The cumin. I have always said that I hate cumin and while I still maintain that I don’t like it, it keeps finding it’s way into my recipes these days. Eek! My dad (who always makes fun of me for not liking cumin) is going to Read More

BLT Guacamole

Ah, BLT Guacamole, a combo of two of the best things. I literally don’t know a single person who doesn’t like guacamole and the only people I know who don’t like BLTs are vegetarians. So, if you’re a human being who eats meat, you’re going to love this recipe! (And honestly, if you’re a human being who is a vegatrian, Read More

Spicy Fish Sandwiches with Citrus Poppy Slaw

Making this recipe is basically a nightmare for me. It won’t be for you though! Okay, so maybe I’m being just a tad dramatic BUT I really, really, really, REALLY hate the smell of orange peels and guess what’s in the slaw? Orange zest. Ahhhh orange peels. The bane of my existence. Seems like maybe I’m being dramatic again, huh? Read More

Linguine with Pickled Peppers and Crab

Listen, I am a total psycho for not having put pickled peppers in pasta my whole life. I feel like I really blew it on that one. If you need me I’ll be making up for lost time by eating loads and loads of this pasta. Please only interrupt if neccessary. But seriously, pickled peppers are a perfect addition to Read More

Ma! The Meatloaf!

For any people that are confused about the title of this post, you may be excused to go watch Wedding Crashers right now. For the rest of you, let’s make some meatloaf! I’m psyched. I’m sure some of you are thinking, “meatloaf?! Really?” BUT, I will have you know that this meatloaf is not like other meatloaf, It’s a cool Read More

The Best Turkey Burger

Turkey burgers, to me, are hit or miss. I’ve had some good experiences and some really bad experiences. What makes a bad turkey burger, in my opinion? Fillers! Too often I find that turkey burgers just have too much stuff in them! These burgers are the BEST because they are always a hit, never a miss AND there are only Read More
