5 Easy Ways to Step Up Your Dinner Game

It’s almost Valentine’s Day my lovelies! While I’m not a big fan of the holiday, I do love that it’s an excuse to indulge in chocolate and wine. And to break out a few “fancy” recipes. Fancy, in the world of food, is often synonymous with “complicated”. I don’t believe that for a second. Sure, […]






Buttered Pretzel Bites

I’ve been craving bread lately, but 1) haven’t gotten around to making any and 2) have been trying to avoid my carbivore tendencies to counteract my oh-so-unhealthy eating over the holidays. It’s been a month, though, and I think I’m balanced now. My go-to bread of choice is the pretzel. In line with the Game […]






Shredded Chicken and Ranch Pinwheels

The Super Bowl is all about the food! And the advertisements, of course. I like to have a balanced offering of finger foods to snack on at parties: something sweet, something savory, and something satisfying. These shredded chicken and ranch pinwheels cover both savory and satisfying, and they’re really easy to make! I’m sure you’ve seen […]






Simple Homestyle Chicken Noodle Soup

As a kid, ramen noodles were my go-to soup of choice when I was sick. (I cringe looking back at how much of that stuff I ate, knowing now how terrible it is for you.) I couldn’t stand canned chicken noodle, and home made wasn’t something we did. A big bowl of brothy ramen just […]






Braided Apple Cream Cheese Pastry

I’m back from Austin y’all and it was glorious for my tastebuds. I definitely ate all the hamburgers. Hat Creek, Mighty Fine, Wholly Cow… I only missed P. Terry’s! All the fried avocado too… Mighty Cone, Torchy’s… Foodie goals: figure out how to fry an avocado at home. Don’t worry my fabulous four, I’ll figure […]






Whipped Cream Filled Donuts

I fell off the wagon guys. The healthy eating wagon, that is. Remember the amazing summer’s harvest egg white frittata I whipped up this week? Well, all those egg whites meant leftover egg yolks. Lots of them, because I actually made the frittata a second time for my family. What do you do with over […]






Summer Harvest Egg White Frittata

Oh my damn. It’s been two weeks since I’ve graced the internet with a delightful new recipe! I’ve basically just committed blog-suicide. Since I only have about four followers, I guess it’s not that bad. You rock, by the way, my faithful four! I promise not to disappear like that again. No, my fingers are […]






Slow-Cooker Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken

With the fall semester kicking off, my world is about to go a little crazy. I’m picking up a couple of evening dance classes on top of my day job (every needs a hobby job!). Pre-planning is no longer a good idea freely floating around in the back of my mind. Now, it’s a necessity. […]






Creamy Pasta Carbonara

Before I give you the question, let me give you the answer: Pasta Carbonara. Pasta Carbonara is my go-to response for so many questions: What’s an easy meal I can make tonight? What’s the easiest Italian meal to prepare? What do you cook when you’re feeling lazy? With just three (or four, but we’ll get […]






Quick and Easy Eggplant Pizzas

It’s Meatless Monday! Guess what that means? Cheese smothered vegetables. Because if you can’t have meat, you better be able to enjoy some cheese. These eggplant pizzas fit the bill, and they’re quick enough to pull together on a Monday night. If you’ve never picked up an eggplant, much less tried to cook one, don’t […]
