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...
White Cheddar Bacon Bread

White Cheddar Bacon Bread

Bacon and cheese is a delicious combination sent by the gods to enslave every last one of us. When I was little, I ate SO much bacon and cheese that my sweat probably smelled like those ingredients (cue the “ew”s haha). The salty crunch paired with cool, creamy cheese was just too good to pass...
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....
Cheesy Spinach Stuffed Pepper Poppers

Cheesy Spinach Stuffed Pepper Poppers

This recipe provides you with a good example of what I do while I’m waiting for dinner to finish cooking. I don’t kick my feet up and wait for the timer to go off. Nor do I clean the kitchen while watching reruns of The Big Bang Theory (usually). Instead, while dinner is simmering away,...
Mashed Cauliflower

Mashed Cauliflower

So…I totally broke my diet yesterday…but not for lack of trying! Honestly, I swear I’ve been attempting to cut back on carbs. I really want need to slim down from the pounds I’ve been consistently packing on this winter. Can I please stop pretending I’m hibernating from the gym?! Oy. Anyway, I had originally planned...
Spinach, Artichoke, & Asparagus Dip

Spinach, Artichoke, & Asparagus Dip

Another Super Bowl recipe! Watching a football game is great for two reasons – the actual game and the food. Whether you’re tailgating or viewing it from your couch, football is definitely an American past time. Growing up, we watched football all the time, then it died away for a bit until my brother was...
Cheesy Crab Toasts

Cheesy Crab Toasts

Late night post? Say whattttt? Well…I was clearing out the leftover pics on my camera and found one I randomly took when I made crab stuffed tilapia earlier this month. When I first made that recipe, I had way more stuffing than tilapia filets, so I plopped the rest of the crab mixture on bread....
Jersey Crab Pizza

Jersey Crab Pizza

Jersey gets a bad wrap on TV, but I promise you it’s a great place to live filled with awesome food. You need to remember, we’re called The Garden State for a reason! Anyway, I thought I’d make a recipe to highlight some of the fresh food that I grew up loving as a kid...
Grilled Zucchini and Red Onion Pizzette

Grilled Zucchini and Red Onion Pizzette

I don’t think I’ve ever truly stressed how much I insanely love crispy thin crust pizzas. The textures are just out of this world. It’s pizza cheesy goodness mixed with a satisfying crunch from the crust, but none of the greasy guilt you get from a regular slice. Annnnd it’s incredibly super simple to make!...
Lentil Loaf

Lentil Loaf

Lentil loaf is something I would have never dreamed to serve my carnivorous family until a couple of years ago. They would have been like “this isn’t food…this is what food eats” (hilarious, I know). But recently their minds have changed. Why have they changed, you ask? Well, I forced my folks to try a...
Father's Day Mac n' Cheese

Father’s Day Mac n’ Cheese

My family likes to eat. A lot. One of the things we can never seem to get enough of is cheese. More specifically, we can’t get enough of melted cheese! At any one time, we probably have at least 5 types waiting to be devoured. This proved to be true yesterday when my dad talked...
