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

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

Spicy Fish Sandwiches with Citrus Poppy Slaw

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

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

Brats with Spicy Apricot Sauce

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. It’s all, “Honey, which pumpkin patch do you want to go to this year?” and, “I think I’ve finally worked up the courage to go to Statesville Haunted Prison, let’s buy tickets!” Read More

Salmorejo, Two Ways

I’d like to take this opportunity to give a couple of shout outs. To my brother for studying abroad in Spain and to my parents for deciding to take a family trip to meet up with him and travel through the country. Without you guys, I might never have discovered Salmorejo and that would’ve been a damn tragedy. Salmorejo is Read More

‘Nduja Breakfast Sandwiches

Before we get into the recipe, I want to just quickly go over what ‘nduja is. I’m getting this out of the way before you scroll down to the next photos and get turned off by the consistency. ‘Nduja is a spicy, spreadable pork from Italy and it is incredibly delicious! If you like salami, Italian sausage, any kind of Read More
