Roasted Cabbage Wedges

So I seem to be obsessed with wedges lately.  Wedge salads, wedge sandals, blood orange wedges, and now my new favorite….roasted cabbage wedges! I had seen this idea on the blogosphere awhile back.  And after a friend tried and absolutely loved it, I thought roasted cabbage would be a...

Irish Soda Bread

This weekend I decided to make an Irish feast to practice for St. Patrick’s Day. But I have to admit — even though I have some Irish in my family, and had a blast traveling there a few years ago to visit my sister when she studied abroad in...

2-Ingredient Nutella Hot Chocolate

Nutella + Milk. I can’t believe I didn’t think of this before.  But it is quite possibly the most heavenly hot chocolate I have ever made, and will be making again soon. You should too.  :)

Ginger Vegetable Stir Fry

Hello….color!!! This simple stir fry I made this week was so yummy (and lovely!) that I thought it was worth sharing.  Just mixed together some colorful veggies, a simple stir fry sauce, and lots of fresh ginger.  What’s not to love?!? It’s perfect for a simple side dish, or...

Creamy Roasted Garlic & Mushroom Pasta

I have to confess my new favorite find at the grocery store: pre-peeled garlic cloves!!! For years, peeling garlic has been a nice stress reliever.  First, it was peeling it “by hand” with that satisfying pound of the knife to break each clove open.  Then, this crazy video went...

Pineapple Ginger Smoothie

Many of you longtime followers know that I’m not a big believe in “recipes” when it comes to smoothies.  My method of choice is always “a little of this, a little of that”, usually based on whatever fresh produce happens to be hanging around my house. But a smoothie...

Avocado Pesto Pasta

Yep.  Thought it was time that I gave this latest food blogosphere trend a try. Like many of you, my eyebrows went up too the first time I saw the words avocado and pesto paired together.  But I happen to be a ridiculously enthusiastic fan of both.  So why not see...

Nutella Cheesecake

This weekend I moved into a new home with a beautiful kitchen.  And had book club.  And had Valentine’s Day recipes on the brain.  And had a craving for Nutella. Seemed like the perfect time to make a cheesecake.  So I did.  :) And it was absolutely, positively, fabulously Nutella-licious....

No-Bake Energy Bites

This No-Bake Energy Bites recipe is easy to make, full of feel-good ingredients, and so irresistibly delicious!  (Affiliate links included.) Hip hip for no bake energy bites! I’ll admit, a few years ago when I first posted this recipe, I had never even heard of no bake energy “bites”.  But...

Buffalo Chicken Cups

A few weeks ago, my friends Christin, James and I were sitting around brainstorming what to cook for the big game this year.  And when I asked James’ advice, thinking that I already had a decently complete selection of game day recipes on the site, the conversation went about...

Saucy Asian Meatballs

Anyone looking for a fun new appetizer (or even main course!) for the big game this week? These saucy Asian meatballs are some of my favorites!!! I first made them a few months ago when I was experimenting with multiple meatball recipes to serve for a fundraiser.  And when...

S’mores Pie

Even food bloggers have little kitchen disasters.  :) Recently on a day off, I decided to make a recipe I have been wanting to try forever — s’mores pie.  Love s’mores.  Love pie.  Brilliant idea.  Right? Well, I made the chocolate part of the pie, which was a breeze...
