10 Benefits of Red Wine

The weather is warming up and that means it’s outdoor dining season! Love it. Every time I walk by an outdoor cafe I want to grab a seat and lounge with friends over multiple bottles of wine while we pretend to live in Europe without a care in the world....

White Bean and Artichoke Tarts

No, this isn’t an April Fools joke, I am actually posting a recipe today. Who knew I had it in me haha. I know I constantly claim that I’ll become a better blogger and post this or that, but hey, I’m human and do the best I can with the limited free time that I...

Blackberry Clafouti

Clafouti patooti footi. It’s time for a French dessert recipe, everyone! The Northeast has experienced frigid temperatures and record snow falls this year. It’s driving me up the wall. On the news I heard there is even something called “snow rage”. Snow rage? Like….really? I’m a bit skeptical that it’s an actual thing, but the way...

Ranch Party Mix

Hi. Remember me? Stephen. The blogger who hasn’t blogged recently? Yeah, me. Now you remember. Sorry I disappeared for a while. Blame the craziness of everyday life, depressing cold weather, juggling multiple jobs, and laziness for keeping me away. But I’m back now and have some fun recipes to share with you…if you’ll let me!...
Au Gratin White Beans & Kale

Au Gratin White Beans & Kale

  We’re in the thick of winter and all I can think about is comfort food. I need a filling meal morning, noon, and night….as well as forty billion snacks a day. Yet no matter what I eat, I’m still hungry from the minute I wake up to the time I close my eyes to...
10 Foods for Clear Skin

10 Foods for Clear Skin

I don’t have the best skin. For some reason, I didn’t grow out of acne as I got older. Because of this, I’ve become conscious of the fact that we really are what we eat. It’s important to be mindful of what I put in my mouth if I want to be break-out free. To help...
Quinoa with Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Quinoa with Roasted Brussels Sprouts

So I dunno if you guys have picked up on this by now, but I eat fairly healthy 82% of the time and go kinda nuts the other 18% (baking is just too much fun!). Even though that’s a great split, I want to make a conscious effort to eat more healthily in 2014. This...

Mulled Juice

Happy 2014, everyone! I hope you all had a great time ringing in the  new year. Me? I danced all night after going to dinner with my folks. Aaaaand I contracted what I can only assume is a fatal strand of swine flu since I’ve been in a sneezy, zombie-like state ever since. Fun times!...
Creamsicle Splash Cocktail

Creamsicle Splash Cocktail

This year my mom wanted to make a signature drink for Christmas Eve. After searching for a bit, she used a recipe from Sandra Lee on the Food Network and well….lets just say that the drink wasn’t successful. It tasted like cough syrup with a splash of mouth wash. Nothing against Sandra Lee, but it...

Snowball Truffles (White Chocolate Coconut Truffles)

Merry (belated) Christmas everybody! This year, my family had more than 20 guests over on Christmas Eve to celebrate the holiday. With all those different personalities, it definitely borderlined on madness. Lets just say that we were LOUD. There were tears, cheers, and, in all honesty, probably some secretive jeers. Welcome to the family gatherings,...
Garlic & Thyme Roasted Onions

Garlic & Thyme Roasted Onions

If you need an easy to make side dish for holiday entertaining, listen up because this recipe is for you. I’ve probably mentioned this before, but in case I haven’t, let me just say that my family loves onions. Judging from the quantity, as well as variety of onions in our house, this love may...
Blueberry & White Chocolate Cookies

Blueberry & White Chocolate Cookies

Two cookie recipes in a week? It seriously must be Christmastime. It’s a time of year closely associated with friends and family, laughter and good cheer, cozy fires and warm sweaters. We all love it…but it’s all a facade hiding a dark truth. Yes, I’m about to reveal the true meaning of Christmas: ’tis the...
Molasses Crinkles

Molasses Crinkles

So the other day the printer in my office mysteriously went off, quickly printing off several copies of a molasses crinkles recipe. The office manager went around, asking each of us if we had printed the sheets, but no one claimed them. It was so random. After a couple hours of pointing figures and conspiracy...
