Sweet & Savory Egg Sandwich!

Happy Friday Lovelies!

Today begins our three day weekend for which we owe Christopher Columbus, aka Cristobal Colon, some appreciation; considering in 1492 he happened upon (or “discovered”) the New World.  Can you imagine what the world would be like today if said discovering hadn’t been made at that specific point in history?  What would have changed?  Would we all still be here? Would we have had the same relationships? Met the same people? Had the same opportunities? Continue reading

Papas Bravas!

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

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

Yogurt Parfait!

‘Ello Poppets!

Friday has arrived!  I feel like the days are flying by being in Culinary School.  I’m learning SO much, and loving every minute of it!

Since I’m in a condensed program, we are learning at a fast pace and cooking anywhere between 4-8 recipes a day, some of which have very intense directions. Many times, by the time I 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!
