Beet Carpaccio with Goat Cheese and Pepitas

This Beet Carpaccio is one of those recipes that looks fancy, but is incredibly easy to make. Like, seriously, it’s almost embarrassing how easy it is. You’ll roast some beets, slice ’em up, add some delicious toppings and there you go, a beautiful and tasty dish! Speaking of beautiful, can we just take a moment to appreciate how pretty beets Read More

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

Chicory Salad with Blue Cheese and Pears

My mom used to make a similar salad to this one when I was growing up and I used to resist it because my (totally wrong) brain thought that pears couldn’t be good in a salad. Well, when I finally came around and realized that pears are DELICIOUS in salad, I felt like a real moron. Take it from me Read More

Farro With Miso Mushrooms

I am honestly kind of mad at myself for not bringing this recipe to life sooner. I have a list of “cooking ideas” in my notes on my phone where I jot down any and all ideas I have for recipes. Some of these ideas are fully formed and ready to be put to the test and some… well, some Read More

Casarecce with Shrimp and My Lunch with Barilla

Thank you, Barilla®, for this unforgettable experience and for sponsoring this post. Thoughts, photos and recipe are my own. There have been moments in my blogging career when I’ve looked around me, taken note of what I’m doing, who I’m with and what I’m eating and thought, “This is REALLY cool.”  This week, I had a BIG one of those Read More

Roasted Asparagus with Marinated Tomato Salad

This salad is perfect for the end of Spring/Beginning of Summer. Asparagus is still in season and cherry tomatoes are popping up at farmer’s markets all over. The combination of slightly charred asparagus and sweet, juicy tomatoes is really delicious and then top it off with Parmesan and fresh basil? Perfection! Also, can we just appreciate how really, really ridiculously 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

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
