Easy Veggie Dip

Veggie-Dip-6b

Happy Tuesday, everyone! Did y’all have a good holiday weekend? Dan and I did! To get our weekend started off with a bang, we let ourselves get talked into a midnight 5K in the city with our friends Liz and Scott (Liz…you definitely owe me a trip to the suburbs for this). This led to much…read more »

Strawberry Jam 3

Homemade Strawberry Jam

Hi guys! So uh…it’s been a long time since my last post, huh? A month and a half, to be precise. Sorry about that! At first I was planning to just take a break from posting for one weekend, but then things got really busy at work and I didn’t have any energy/desire to cook…read more »

Eggs Benedict Burger 6 (1 of 1)

Sunday Brunch: Eggs Benedict Burger

I don’t know about you guys, but the dilemma that I constantly face when we go out to brunch is whether I should order something breakfast-y or something lunch-y. Usually, the struggle involves deciding between some sort of eggs benedict (smoked salmon, crab, spinach, pork belly…mmmm) and whatever delicious-sounding burger is being featured that day. On the one…read more »

Chicken Mustard Sauce 9 (1 of 1)

Pan Roasted Chicken, Potatoes & Asparagus with Truffle Honey Mustard Sauce {Sponsored Post – Maille}

Guys you might not know this, but Dan and I are mustard fiends. At any given point in time, if you come to our house you’ll probably find at least two bottles of yellow French’s mustard in the pantry, and between two and four jars of Dijon/grainy/honey mustard on the shelves. The yellow mustard is for when we have hot…read more »

Huevos Rancheros 7 (1 of 1)

Sunday Brunch: Huevos Rancheros

Huevos Rancheros is one of those things that I see on the menu of just about every brunch place we go to, but never ever think to order because why on earth would I want salsa all up on my eggs? Hollandaise sauce, yes. Soy sauce, for sure (it’s an Asian thing). Ketchup and/or salsa, nope. Buuuuttttt,…read more »

Pineapple-Mint-Julep-22c

Spicy Pineapple Mint Juleps

Today’s recipe is inspired by a margarita Dan and I had once at a tequileria called the Mala Suerte (“bad luck”). It was made with spicy habanero infused tequila, grapefruit juice, and lime juice, and came with a sugar rim. Since I generally hate peppers and they hate me, I thought for sure that the drink would be disgusting, but damned if it…read more »

Tropical Smoothie 3 (1 of 1)

Sunday Brunch: Tropical Orange Smoothies

Short post today, folks! It was too nice outside this weekend to be cooped up in my kitchen, so instead of getting fancy with brunch, I just threw together a quick smoothie with fresh mango, banana, carrot and the pineapple I had leftover from making lava flows last week. I’m calling it a Tropical Orange…read more »

Lava-Flow-4b

Lava Flow Cocktails…and a GIVEAWAY! {GIVEAWAY CLOSED}

Happy April 15th, everyone! Have y’all filed your taxes yet? Dan took care of ours earlier in the week, which is great for me because filing taxes is one of my least favorite things to do. Even with TurboTax guiding me along, filling out my tax forms every year is amazingly stressful. In the back of my mind…read more »

Muffin Tops 5 (1 of 1)

Sunday Brunch: Lemon Blueberry Muffin Tops

I have a confession to make…we didn’t cook brunch this weekend. This post is a sham! Well, it’s technically not a sham in the sense that I did actually bake muffin tops this week…but it is a sham in the sense that I specifically made them on Friday night so that I could have a post…read more »

Al Pastor 5 (1 of 1)

Crock Pot Al Pastor

I’ve told you guys my al pastor story before, right? (Ugh, look at those crappy old pictures). You know…a taqueria opened up in the student center across the street from my dorm sophomore year, and I simultaneously discovered a deep passion for al pastor burritos and gained 10 lbs in one semester? It was a…read more »

Smoked Salmon Scramble 7c (1 of 1)

Sunday Brunch: Smoked Salmon, Goat Cheese & Scallion Scrambled Eggs On Toast

Happy Easter, everyone! What are you all doing today? In my family, we don’t really have any Easter traditions. When I was a kid, my parents would buy me stuffed bunnies every year and take me to local Easter egg hunts, but once I got older Easter stopped being a thing. I think that happens…read more »
