Apple, Turkey, Brie and Garlic Aioli!

Good morning sunshine!

Life is beautiful! Am I right?! We woke up this morning, we can see, we can breathe and we are able to move around of our own volition, and I am just so thankful.  I know we all tend to get caught up in the daily grind of everyday life, but I like to stop myself and really appreciate what I have going for me: I have a loving family, I’m fortunate enough to be pursuing one of my dreams (culinary school), I have a room over my head, food on my table and some money in my pocket.  There are many who have much less than that.

Fig, Brie and Berries, Oh My!

Good Morrow Ladies and Gents!

Have I got a delectable recipe for you this week: Figs, Brie and Berries, oh my!

I’ve had figs on my mind for the past week and have been trying to come up with a unique and interesting recipe that would incorporate said craving.  I came across a recipe where there was soft cheese baked in the fig and decided to put my own little spin on it.  I decided to use brie, Continue reading

Chicken Breakfast Burrito!

Good Morrow!

So, I was pondering different dinner options that could be made in a jiffy (yes, I’m channeling my inner ’50s mom vibe), especially when you have a busy schedule.  I wanted something that would pack a punch of protein, as my body is still trying to adjust to school this last month, and lately by the time I get home I’m hankering for some sustenance.  Continue reading

Grilled Peaches!

Well hellooooo!

How is everyone this fine day? I’m doing FAN-tastic, as I get to spend some QT (Quality Time) with one of my close friends this weekend!  I’m going to relax down the shore and spend some time with some awesome people and eat some delicious food.  Can’t get much better than that, am I right?  Well, maybe if we include this week’s recipe into this weekend’s extravaganza: Grilled Peaches!

Soup Du Jour: Minestrone!

Good morning and welcome back!

Can you believe that it is the last Friday in July?! It’s blowing my mind right now how fast 2016  has been going by.  There’s been so many wonderful events that have happened this year: my nephew being born, one of my best friend’s getting married, changing careers and going back to school for my passion; just to name a few.  All this and we’re only half way through the year!  Continue reading
