S’mores Bars

On weekends when the stars align and my boyfriend isn’t catering or working crazy hours at his restaurant, we “glamp”. I use the term “glamp” loosely. “Glamping” normally consists of luxurious accommodations and although we are technically sleeping in an RV, ours is by far the crappiest on site. She was built before I hit […]

Spicy Mango Chutney

Our household has a very love-hate relationship with mango chutney. While I would smother that perfectly balanced sweet and spicy shit onto just about anything, my male counterpart doesn’t like it at all. I’m not exactly sure what it is about the chutney that he finds so offensive but the silver lining to his unwavering […]

(Not My Granny’s) Cinnamon Rolls

So here’s the thing; I grew up on my granny’s cinnamon rolls thinking I didn’t like cinnamon rolls. I apologize to my family who are potentially be reading this – please don’t disown me. My grand-mother was a great woman and cooked a mean Christmas goose however cinnamon rolls just weren’t her forte. Hard, dry […]

Citrus Salmon Salad

This may come as a surprise to some of you considering the type of content I normally post (Double Chocolate Cookies, anyone?), but I eat salad almost daily. This is particularly true during the warmer months when I’m craving something cool and crunchy. I reach for salads until we are hit with “soup season” (aka […]

Double Chocolate Cookies

Guys, I have a confession to make; I watch a lot of Sesame Street. Like, a lot. Segments like The Letter of the Day and Elmo the Musical keep my baby’s attention like nothing else. Now, before you rip me a new one for childhood screen time and its negative impact on my baby’s development, […]

Honey Garlic Pork Tenderloin

Pork; the other white meat. Generally, I enjoy pork. My partner can fry a pork chop so perfectly that I almost prefer it to steak (almost, but not quite) and my mother-in-law’s picnic ham is Sunday dinner perfection. Pork tenderloin though? Well, it usually sucks. Not to offend tenderloin fans but there, I said it. […]

The Cranberry Screwdriver

It’s Friyay, y’all! And you know what that means; happy hour is almost upon us. Obviously, happy hour can be applied to any day of the week. Don’t feel bad if, like me, you’ve been hitting patio season hard lately. This being said, there’s something about that first end-of-the-work-week drink that somehow tastes better. It’s […]

Belgian Waffles

To all of you Belgian waffle lovers out there, you’ve come to the right place. This waffle recipe is the perfect option for my fellow sweet junkies. Until recently, I had been making these for my partner’s restaurant but a brunch menu revamp let me off the hook, so to speak. What’s great about the […]

Cheesy Beef Empanadas

For those of you out there who aren’t yet familiar with the empanada, here’s all you need to know: 1. They’re essentially the Spanish version of a Hot Pocket. 2. They’re fucking delicious. As you may have noticed, I’ve been on somewhat of a beef kick lately. I know, bad me. I will throw in […]

Strawberry Cake & First Birthday

It was my baby’s first birthday recently *suppresses a sob* and it’s hard to believe that a whole year has gone by since I pushed that watermelon-sized butterball through my vajayjay. She is my third child and it’s been a tad wild to say the least. The other two kids are a fair amount older […]
