Loaded Mashed Potato Pouches

In my humble opinion, appetizers and the Holiday Season pair together much like wine and cheese. November and December bring family + friends alike together with greater frequency, all of which makes my heart sublimely happy. Following our Thanksgiving dinner, we had an excess amount of mashed potatoes (thanks to you CostCo + your 15 pound …

Fried Rice

I have scoured the internet for the quintessential fried rice recipe that brings me back to my childhood years with no luck. While there are a lot of great ones out there, very few hit all my criteria of what it ought to taste like. Memory has a strong attachment to flavors, which is why so …

Spicy Maple Glazed Rumaki

I love how social media connects people. It’s a gathering space where people from all different walks of life can connect and share; come together. This is very much akin to my philosophy on meeting at the dinner table – we gather not only to feed our bodies, but also our minds, relationships and foster …

Cheesy Skillet Onion + Bacon Dip

As back to school creeps closer and pre-season football games are in full swing, I find the comforts of heavier appetizers to munch in lieu of dinner more appealing. This one will become a new staple on weekends and holiday gatherings in our kitchen. It’s creamy and loaded with flavor from a variety of cheeses, onions …

Cauliflower + Dill Spaghetti

Week night meals can vary from a well planned, calm menu to a frenzied episode of Food Network’s ‘Chopped’ in our home. If you work, have children, volunteer, travel often or any combination of the above, you get where I’m coming from in terms of this scenario. Not all are successful, and ironically the biggest …

Parmesan + Thyme Cauliflower Rice

Cauliflower is one of those vegetables I’ve always struggled eating until recently. In efforts to get my two blonde babes to keep an open mind about all foods, I figured I should do the same and simply try different variations of cooking said vegetable. One tried and true method I’ve found to get almost anyone to …

Parmesan Garlic + Dill Drumsticks

There’s something to be said about chicken wings + football. Theirs is a marriage that has withstood countless years and birthed many flavors. I love them all, truthfully, and any excuse I can get to eat a chicken wing (or drumstick in this instance) is okay by me. With Superbowl Sunday just one week away, …

Cheesy Jalapeño + Chicken Skillet Dip

I finally got around to buying myself a skillet, and I really couldn’t be more excited. It’s long overdue + quite frankly a bit embarrassing that I waited so long because there have been countless recipes I’ve wanted to make that required such a kitchen tool. (One of which was a recent recipe posted by …

Spinach Artichoke + Roasted Red Pepper Dip

Christmas is nearing & holiday parties are in full swing. Traditions new + old are being celebrated with friends & family. I love this time of year – but not for all the Hallmark reasons. For me it’s a time when we gather round the table and reflect on the gifts of one another’s company. Inevitably, there’s also a lot of great …

Citrus Sweet + Spicy Almonds

Whether entertaining a large group of people or looking for something to have on hand to satisfy a nibble – you’re going to want to make these highly addicting almonds. A little bit sweet, a little salty & a little spicy, they satisfy the craving; whatever the craving of the moment may be. When invited to …
