Easy Eggs in Purgatory

Eggs in Purgatory might take the blue ribbon for coziest breakfast ever (if anyone is giving out ribbons for that.) In addition to being the coziest, it’s also one of the easiest! I’m telling you, it looks fancy, but it’s a breeze to make. I mean, I regularly make this on weekdays—that’s how easy it is! It’s a healthy and fun Read More

Bucatini all’Amatriciana

Bucatini all’Amatriciana is one of my all time favorite pasta dishes. I visited Italy with my family when I was 19, and one of my favorite memories from the trip was the most perfect bowl of Bucatini all’Amatriciana I ate in Rome. Perfectly al dente pasta, chunky tomato sauce loaded with crispy, salty pork and tons of cheese—you can’t go 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

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

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

Holiday parties are here and that question, “do we need to bring something?” is running rampant. These crostini are the perfect appetizer for a holiday party or any other get together, for that matter! THESE are what you should bring. After making this recipe numerous times, I’ve settled on breakfast radishes as my radish of choice. Because of their shape, Read More

Sweet and Spicy Grenadine Shrimp with Basil

I was staring into the empty refrigerator one night, trying to decide what I wanted to cook when I just about gave up and ordered take out. The fridge was bare and Chinese was sounding pretty good. I was going to order my usual seafood dish. Or maybe something sweet and sour? Then the responsible side of my brain kicked Read More

Chicken Piccata with Arichokes and Jalapeños

Everybody loves Chicken Piccata, right? Such a classic! While classics are always, well, classic, sometimes they need a little spicing up. That is exactly (literally) what I’m doing here! You’re going to love the new, spicy chicken piccata. One of the most important parts of this recipe is the thickness (or should we say thinness) of the chicken. The chicken Read More

Cod en Papillote with Tomatoes and Artichokes

This recipe is great because it’s super easy, it’s healthy and you get to say, “en pappillote” which is always fun. Oh, and duh, it’s very tasty! Total no brainer, this recipe. “En pappillote” means “in parchment” in French (we’re being fancy) and it sounds more tricky than it is. In fact, this is one of the easiest, if not the Read More

Shrimp with Coconut Rice and Tomato Pepper Sauce

It’s officially Fall! At the risk of sounding like the most basic of B’s, I LOVE fall! Best. Season. Ever. I mean, the weather is perfect, the trees are gorgeous, you get to bust out the sweaters and boots again, AND it’s the best time to dive into some cozy comfort food. Now, I know it’s not quite crisp out Read More
