Crescent Roll Party

I was in the mood to party and since I’m currently a stay at home mom with a two year old, that usually entails food.🥳🍕🥟 I’ve been toying around with the idea of making sweet and savory empanadas. I’m not ambitious enough to make my own dough so enlisted a […]

Stir Crazy Bread

I was making tortellini last night and craved some garlic bread to go with it. Gone are the days when you just dash in the store for a random item (at least for now). So you make do. Every day. However, it is up to you to decide if you will […]

TV and Food Pairings

I don’t know about you guys, but lately I’ve been watching a lot of TV and doing a lot of eating. I thought it might be fun to share what I’ve been up to in the living room as well as the kitchen. I’ve recently discovered some really cool shows […]

Kitchen Experiments

Trying new recipes is my biggest passion when it comes to cooking. I have certain go to meals that my family enjoys which makes me very happy. However, I like to change it up and challenge myself. My experiments in the kitchen may not always work out but that is […]

He truly enjoyed […]

Working & Lunching

As many are settling back into a work routine in the new year, I thought I would highlight some of my lunchtime greatest hits. These are simple ideas with minimal ingredients that can often be reincorporated the next day. Oftentimes, people may not have extra time or money to go […]

Holiday Roundup

Hello and Happy New Year! I don’t know about you, but I’ve been cooking up a storm for the holidays.👩‍🍳 The past couple of weeks in my kitchen have been a whirlwind resulting in lots of food but no writing.🌪 So, I decided to play a little catch up by […]

Mimi’s Brunswick Stew

My mother in law is an instinctual cook. She relies on taste and a little bit of this and that until she somehow knows that the dish is just right. We both love Brunswick stew and often buy it from the hot deli selections of the local market. However, she […]
