Spicy Shrimp and Smashed Avocado Bites

These spicy shrimp and avocado bites get gobbled up in minutes every time I make them so you might want to double, triple, or quadruple the recipe!  Don’t say I didn’t warn you. I have been making these for years and am just finally getting around to posting the recipe because, well, I’m an idiot. No seriously, that’s the reason. Read More

Sheet Pan Crab Nachos with Tillamook Cheddar

When I think of foods from my childhood, two things come to mind. Pasta, because my dad is Italian and cooked it all the time, and crab. I grew up going to Virginia every summer to my family’s cabin where we would catch crabs, steam them and eat them on the porch. It’s still one of my most favorite meals! 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

The Best Turkey Burger

turkey burger recipe

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

It’s almost fall! Fall is absolutely my favorite time of year and I just get so excited, I go into full fall dork mode,  just ask my boyfriend.

I got the idea for this recipe at the most annoying time, just like almost all of my recipe ideas, when I was trying to fall asleep. It happens every time, I start to drift off to sleep and then, boom! What about this idea? Oh! this might be good! What if instead, I made it like this… blah blah Read More

Loaded Pulled Pork Sheet Pan Nachos

Pulled Pork Sheet Pan Nachos

This is pretty much a non-recipe. There are no measurements and no hard rules about what ingredients to use except, of course, for the pork. Were using this pork! Other than that, it’s basically a nacho free for all. I mean who really needs a recipe for sheet pan nachos anyway? You’re just going to lay a bunch of tortilla chips down, Read More

Basic Pulled Pork

I have pretty strong feelings for slow cooked pork. We’re in a pretty serious relationship. Like, me and this Cuban Pork are fully committed and in a Facebook official relationship. The recipe I’m sharing today, this basic, easy pulled pork, is my side piece. Don’t tell my main! No really, this is the easiest recipe for pulled pork. Not a Read More
