Trying to figure out what to bring to your super bowl party? My two favorite game day menu items have to be pulled pork and nachos. Separately, they are incredible. Together, they are mind-blowing! There’s just something about the sweetness of the pulled pork and the salty, crunchiness of the nachos that just does it for me. (I’m a huge fan of sweet and savory items!) That’s why these Pulled Pork Nachos are so great; they are the best of both worlds! Continue reading
I’ve been on a quest for cold lunch/dinner options lately. Where I live it’s been in the 90s for the last week or so and turning on my stove for anything longer than 10 minutes is torturous. So when I was combing through recipes I had in my little black book and saw this recipe for Creamy Shrimp and Dill Salad, I was super elated! Continue reading
Surprisingly, food is a big part of my life. (I know, complete shocker, right?!) Technically, it’s a big part of everyone’s life, as we need substance to fuel our bodies. However, I’m not just talking about a food for livelihood’s sake. I’m talking about the more adventurous side of food. The exploratory side, as it were. Which is why living in Spain was such an amazing experience!
Besides the culture and amazing sites, food was such a mind blowing experience when I lived there. With jamón iberico, cochinillo (baby pig) and a variety of tapas that would make your mouth salivate so much it would make Pavlov proud, it’s not hard to understand how someone could grow a spirit of culinary curiosity. That’s why I decided to tackle one recipe that I always loved ordering when I went out: Spanish Tortilla, also known as Tortilla Espanola! (Spanish accent required.) Continue reading
It’s that time of the year again, where your calendar is filling up with BBQs and fun plans with friends and family! With that, comes the slight pressure of figuring out what dish to bring. Ahh! Memorial Day passed recently and I was trying to figure out what dish to bring to a friend’s BBQ when I had the urge to make fresh salsa. I scoured through my fridge and found all of the ingredients readily available, so that’s what I’m going to share with you all today! 🙂 Continue reading
I have a confession… The last few weeks I’ve been obsessed with watching the Great British Baking Show on Netflix. Not just the actual show though, but the Masterclass series where the judges, Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood, bake their interpretations of the challenges from the show. (Didn’t know there was a Masterclass series, eh? Well, you’re welcome.)
To be honest, it was something that I originally started to help pass the time while recovering, however it’s actually SUPER fascinating! All of those baked cakes, torts and breads. (Drool…) It actually reinvigorated my love of baking and got me itching to make a homemade artisan bread! Which is the recipe I bring to you all today! Continue reading
First off, I would like to wish a very happy birthday to two people: one of my close friends, Jess, and my sister-in-law, Sam! Thank you for always making things brighter and keeping a positive attitude! I’m very blessed to know you both. Continue reading
Good afternoon sunshine!
Throwing you off with the delayed post, aren’t I? (We’re you salivating in anticipation?) Don’t worry, your wait was not in vain! This week’s recipe is one that I’ve wanted to do for some time now, as it’s one that I used to love to get when I lived in Spain: Papas Bravas! Continue reading
Fall is in the air! Yesterday was the official start to Autumn, and the 1 year anniversary of this blog! (Ahhhhh!!! Can you believe it?! How time flies when you’re having fun!) To mark this momentous occasion, I would like to celebrate by featuring one of my grandmother’s favorite soups: Chicken and Barley Soup!
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
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
