Broccoli Salad

Broccoli Salad is one of the best dishes to serve in the summer! It’s all a matter of dicing some vegetables and tossing them with you favorite add-ins and mayo! It’s rich and yet not too heavy and refreshing. If you have a last minute party or guests over it’s super quick to put together….

Blueberry Cheesecake Galette

There’s something so timeless about a galette. It’s a classic dessert that is so easy to put together and extremely versatile. They’re also effortlessly impressive; they only look complicated with the pretty folds and gooey, fruity centers. They’re attractive on the table and yet, you don’t have to sweat much to put them together. If…

Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies are a CLASSIC dessert, and there’s about a million opinions on how they should be; big, flat, and chewy like the kind at the mall or thick and cakey, chocolate chips, morsels, or chopped chocolate bars, chilled overnight or not chilled, light brown sugar or dark brown sugar (alternatively, no brown sugar…

Brisket Carnita Tacos

This is a recipe I shared several months ago on the website that I’ve since altered to be cooked in a dutch oven and made changes to the recipe. This is one of my family’s all time favorite meals. Who doesn’t love a good taco, right? And nothing beats the sweet and tangy flavor of…

Asian Cabbage Wedge Salad

This roasted cabbage with an Asian inspired zingy peanut vinaigrette is perfect for when you need something light or just something beyond your standard sauteed cabbage.

Avocado Salsa

Avocado Salsa may be one of my favorite things. At Papas & Beer they have an avocado salsa that I literally go there just to have some of. And recently I saw where Tostitos was jumping on the bandwagon and releasing a jarred version. Well, it seems to me that the fresher the salsa, the…

Eggplant Parmesan

Eggplant Parmesan is entirely underrated in my opinion. Why? Probably because almost every restaurant rendition I’ve ever had is a greasy, fried, sloppy mess with an overwhelming amount of cheese served over overcooked pasta. And if you try to make it the way it gets served up most places, your kitchen is covered in frying…

Almond Oatmeal Chocolate Morsel Cookies

Almond Oatmeal Chocolate Morsel cookies, it’s a mouthful. I know. Literally and figuratively. These are the love child of my husband and I’s favorite cookies. His favorite are chocolate chip cookies, and he makes probably some of the absolute best in the world. But my favorite growing up was my neighbor’s Raisin Oatmeal Cookies. Even…

Braised Beef Short Ribs

Short ribs are arguably one of the best cuts you could possibly indulge in; they consist of a portion of the rib bone still surrounded by meat of varying thickness. They are often best cooked slowly for maximum flavor and tenderness. And most often when searching how to cook these guys you’ll see them braised,…

Sesame Honey Cashews

In college one of my favorite things to snack on were these sesame & honey covered almonds I found at the store. I loved the unique nutty flavor of the sesame seeds combined with the sweetness of the honey, but they were hard to find just anywhere and over time I simply forgot about them….
