White Bean and Artichoke Tarts

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...
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...
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...
BBQ Pumpkin & Potato Skewers

BBQ Pumpkin & Potato Skewers

Before I begin, let me just get this out of the way – these pictures aren’t my favorite. As I’m writing this post, they’re bothering me more and more. Total brown-town. If I wasn’t such a lazy blogger, I’d remake this recipe just to snap better pictures. Add in a splash of color or a...
Lobster Flatbread with Artichokes

Lobster Flatbread with Artichokes

Two posted recipes in one week?! Am I slowly getting back to normal? No promises yet, but I’m definitely trying my best to keep in touch with you guys more often. Like I said on Wednesday, some settling-into-the-new-job pains have subsided and I’m slowly getting used to the schedule. It’s an adjustment and I’m still tired...
Grilled Mahi-Mahi with Roasted Red Pepper Basil Sauce

Grilled Mahi-Mahi with Roasted Red Pepper Basil Sauce

So apparently mahi mahi is the “poor man’s” lobster…at least that’s what my dad says every time I order off a menu or make it at home. I think someone at a restaurant in Hawaii said that line to him 20 or 30 years ago, and since Hawaii is a haven for seafood, he took...
Crab Pot Pie

Crab Pot Pie

Sorry for my mini blogging hiatus this past week (does a week even count as a hiatus?); I went on vacation to Atlantic Beach, NC for a couple days. Seems like it would be a great place to unwind, but it was a weird trip. The perfect word for it would be “slow”. Or maybe...
Sautéed Zucchini and Peppers (My Go-To Veggies)

Sautéed Zucchini and Peppers (My Go-To Veggies)

I’m known as a vegetable pusher within my family. With every meal I bluntly ask if they’ve had any veggies. If the answer is no, I give a not-so-subtle disapproving glance in their direction that sometimes creates an argument. Is it the most effective way to endorce nutrition? Proooobably not. But what can I say;...
Garlic Mango Basil Shrimp

Garlic Mango Basil Shrimp

  Screw this nonstop gloom and rain – I’m in the mood for foods that scream summer! Hopefully the sun will peak out in July so I can start eating meals outside again. Especially overlooking the ocean or bay….with a drink in hand….aaaand lots of delicious delicious seafood. In fact, this recipe would be perfect...
Savory Spinach, Gruyère, & Bacon Bread Pudding

Savory Spinach, Gruyère, & Bacon Bread Pudding

I’m baaaack! Yup, that’s right, after a week+ away from blogging, I finally plopped myself in front of the laptop to write about a savory bread pudding. Don’t worry, I didn’t stop cooking, I just haven’t been terribly chatty lately. I guess I’m a bit stressed with life…but hey, that’s a story for another day....
Roasted Fennel and Potatoes with Tomatoes

Roasted Fennel and Potatoes with Tomatoes

No matter what time of year, or the mix ingredients you use, a tray of roasted vegetables always looks gorgeous. It really may be one of my favorite things to look at. Take this dish of roasted fennel and potatoes with tomatoes. All the colors are beautiful, with bold pops of red, rich white, and...
Fruit & Veggie Channa Masala

Fruit & Veggie Channa Masala

  In another life I think I was Indian. I had to have been. It’s the only explanation for my obsession with the Indian culture and food.  Dear lord their food. I can’t get enough and would gladly OD on Indian cuisine if it were possible. I’m about to lay it all out there, so...
