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 »

Tequila Sunrise Mimosa 3 (1 of 1)

Tequila Sunrise Mimosas

When our friends Dave and Lynh got married a few years ago, a group of us got together before the ceremony and treated ourselves to a bottomless brunch at a tapas place near the venue. Getting the party started early, ya know? That’s how we roll(ed). And it was a fabulous time – good food, good company, bottomless mimosas and bellinis….read more »

Overnight French Toast 1b (1 of 1)

Sunday Brunch: Overnight Lemon-Glazed French Toast Bake

Today’s brunch post is brought to you by a slight cold, laziness, and a craving for citrus fruits. Confused? Allow me explain. Because Spring is a cruel b****, the weather outside keeps jumping insanely from “man, it’s so nice outside, I don’t even need a jacket” to “holy crap, I can’t feel my face” temperatures. This, combined with the…read more »

Sunday Brunch: Popovers & Blackberry Butter

Now that Spring is officially here, and the days are longer, brighter, and generally nicer, I’m determined to start making the most of our time outside of the office. Starting with the weekends. No more huddling on the couch for hours at a time, watching reruns of Deadwood (or Castle…or Big Bang Theory…), eating cold leftover…read more »

Colcannon 5b (1 of 1)

Colcannon, Revisited

I’m sure you’re all out having fun (drinking green beers? kissing an Irishman?) and not paying any attention to your blog feeds, but I’m going to throw another St. Paddy’s Day post at you anyway. And it’s another good one. Do you like mashed potatoes? How about sauteed greens? If yes, then this is the recipe for you! ‘Cuz…read more »

Bangers Mash 12 (1 of 1)

Bangers & Mash

Guys. I had so many plans for my St. Paddy’s day posts. I was going to make soda bread, Irish apple cake with a creamy whiskey sauce, potatoes, and lots of gratuitously green things. I had these things all planned at weeks ago, so that I’d have everything ready to go in time for the…read more »

Scallion Pancakes 4b (1 of 1)

Scallion Pancakes

Super super short post today, guys. ‘Cuz it’s my blog, and I’ll slack off if I want to. Also, blogger burn out- am I right, Sarah/Jennifer/Carla? *Wink* The only things you need to know about this recipe: It’s super delicious – salty, scallion-y perfection. So many flaky layers. 100% improvement over my old scallion pancakes…read more »

Steamed Fish 6 (1 of 1)

Chinese-Style Whole Steamed Fish

In case you think Dan and I spent ALL of last weekend drinking, let me assure you that we did not. Really! Case in point: on Saturday, we had friends over for a belated Chinese New Year celebration. I made Momofuku pork belly buns, scallion pancakes (recipe coming soon!), green beans, and a whole steamed fish. My friend…read more »

Apple Pie Bourbon Cocktail 2 (1 of 1)

Apple Pie Bourbon Cocktail

If the Apple Pie Infused Bourbon I made last week was Dan’s favorite blog recipe ever, then this is definitely his favorite cocktail I’ve ever made. Admittedly, he tends to like all my boozy concoctions, but I’ve never seen him get quite so ecstatic about any of my other drink recipes. I’m honestly a little embarrassed to tell…read more »

Infused Bourbons 4 (1 of 1)

Apple Pie & Peach Infused Bourbons

Funny story – today’s recipe was originally supposed to be a Valentine’s Day post. A few days before V-Day, I read an article somewhere (probably Buzzfeed) that said something along the lines of “if you REALLY love someone, make them infused liquor.” It was a silly, fun puff piece but for some reason it really spoke to me. Do you guys watch The…read more »

Chocolate Strawberry Cupcake 8b (1 of 1)

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cupcakes

Hey, remember when I tried to make these cupcakes last year, but they failed so hard that I had to turn them into cake balls instead? ‘Cuz the strawberry cream cheese frosting I made was too runny (damnit, strawberry puree), and the chocolate ganache I decided to pour on top of the runny frosting made things 100%…read more »
