I know, who makes their own salad dressings with all the perfectly yummy options at the grocery? I don't, unless we're having Caesar and then it's a yes, yes, yes to all these perfectly paired ingredients in this amazing recipe.Read More
Fish tacos are great for those spring and summer time parties. because they are nice and light to eat on hot days. I don’t know about you but I hate to put on a bathing suite right after eat a giant cheese burger.Read More
This is a great side dish for any season. Farro is readily available at most grocery stores and it’s basically a blank slate, allowing you to add in a multitude of veggies and cheeses regardless of the time of year and what’s in season. And it’s especially good for outdoor picnic’s because there’s no mayo to spoil in the heat.Read More
Corn, Cheese, Mayo... does it get any better?! HA! Probably for some but this is where Chrissy Teigen and I align perfectly. :) This recipe is from her first cookbook “Cravings” and I could easily eat 4 ears all myself, it's just so good. I wish I had known about this dish sooner in life.
While in Barcelona I took a (very authentic) cooking class. For example, we cleaned a cuddle fish and I now know all about ink sacks, intense, lol! We made probably 6 Spanish dishes but the highlight of it all was the paella. It’s not complicated but it is a little bit of a process. Slow and low is the name of the game.Read More

Now I may not be the foremost expert on Danish food but I do know how good their ebelskivers are! Ebelskivers are traditionally served as a dessert because they are pretty sweet. Think pancake, but better. Better because they are little round popper-shaped pancakes filled with your favorite jam, chocolate or fruit and they can be handheld. I love dunking them in maple syrup!Read More
Gambas ala Ajillo which basically translates to garlic shrimp is a standard at any restaurant in Spain. I understand why because it’s so dang delicious, and they set it on fire and who doesn’t like a little flair!Read More
I LOVE lemon everything! So when I saw this recipe circulating around my Instagram account I knew I had to try it. It looks so refined yet you literally throw everything (including the lemon rind) into the blender, mix and you’re done. It doesn’t get any easier!Read More
Eggplant Parm’, easily one of my favorite dishes. However, I’ve only been eating it for the last 9 years. Eggplant wasn’t a vegetable my family cooked with but after meeting Mike (my very Jersey-Italian husband) and his mom I quickly developed a liking for this classic Italian dish.Read More
This dish may take several hours but the effort is minimal and the flavor is huge. The beef becomes so tender not only does it fall off the bone but it melts in your mouth. The silky smooth sauce has so much depth of flavor that when it mixes with the polenta it pulls the entire dish together. Your belly and the people you serve it to will thank you.Read More
The Pandan Leaf Chicken is a common Thai appetizer but one I had never heard of before. When my husband and I were in Thailand learning this recipe it put a huge smile on my face, it was the perfect dish to kick off our culinary adventure.
I know this one looks unique and requires a special trip to the Asian market, but I promise you, this dish will not disappoint. The flavors are out of this world. The aroma from the pandan leaf is infused into the chicken along with the marinade and it creates this perfect umami of flavors in your mouth!
Pear Chips for the WIN over sweet snack cravings!
I love pears anyway so it’s no surprise that I gobbled these right up! They are my late night, TV watching snicky-snack when that sweet craving sneaks up on me. Pears are naturally sweet so you don’t have to add much sugar, which is good, because lately I’ve had a wicked sweet tooth. haha!
What goes better together than coffee and chocolate? Nothing! Well except maybe chocolate and red wine, LOL! Anyway, I posted on my Instagram stories that I was making these energy bites and the DM’s started flooding in (thank you friends) so as soon as I was finished I wanted to get this recipe on the blog. I made 4 batches and after a few tweaks in the first batch I feel comfortable sharing the recipe. Enjoy!Read More

I love to entertain and I’ve been known to spur of the moment, last minute invite people over without giving much thought to what I’m going to serve or if I even have time to run to the grocery.
So I keep these handy-dandy recipes close by for just such occasions!
Why eat potato when you can have Zucchini Skins!
I love it when my husband says ‘What are you making now?’ Then he proceeds to eat it all and ask me to make it again and finishes his thought by adding a ‘hua, that was actually really good.’😜
I’ve been working on a few healthy, Keto friendly recipes for an upcoming cooking class. I think these Zucchini Skins with cheese, bacon and sour cream will make the cutRead More
