Skinny Pizza Rolls

Tweet It’s moving day!! Hallelujah! I have to admit, I’m a bit stressed. It’s a lot of change, but I’m excited for it at the same time. I’m moving out of Manhattan, which is a bit scary, I love being in the thick of the city. But I’m moving into a really hip neighborhood in Brooklyn […]

Tweet The time has come! Well, almost. We are moving in 1 day!  One day, I’m nervous, stressed out, and seriously excited. I get a full, new kitchen, a new neighborhood, a lot of new turf to cover & restaurants to try out. Unfortunately first I need to pack, move and unpack, which isn’t much […]

Mixed Berry-Sour Cream Muffins

Tweet Let’s just say that my handsome and I didn’t eat 8 out of 12 of these muffins, yea, let’s go with that. As terrible as that is, we couldn’t resist. These are super light, just sweet enough and FULL of berries. I don’t know what prompted me to make muffins. I have a couple […]

Homemade Roasted Garlic Round Loaf

Tweet So recently I decided to start attempting to make bread and other dough-involved recipes (stromboli). It really started when my great Aunt Carm, who is 101, asked how my father-in-law’s bakery was doing. I’m not married and my handsome man’s father is far from being a baker so of course I’m like ‘???’ as […]

Loaded Baked Potato Dip

Tweet I gotta say, these football weekends are really killing my attempt at eating somewhat healthy. I did use reduced fat and 1/3 less fat ingredients so you could argue that these are “healthier”. But what’s an amazing dip without bacon?! Every bite is well worth the calories. As a warning I’ve added extra Tabasco, […]

Garlicky Shrimp and Parmesan Grits

Tweet I just want to start this post off with a big ole’ YUM! I wasn’t sure how this dish was going to come out. Grits are easily ruined and if the shrimp weren’t seasoned properly this could have been a dull dish. Luckily it was anything but! The grits were smooth and had a delicious, […]

Local Events for the Foodie in You: Week of Jan 23rd!

Tweet First let’s just start by saying “Woooohooooo Giants!!”. Now that I’ve gotten that out it’s Monday, and I’m pretty excited that the Giants have made it to the super bowl. Plus we’ll be in our new apt, with a full kitchen, and I plan on whipping up some mean grub! But that’s two weeks […]

Red Wine-Dijon Pork Tenderloin

Tweet I’ve got to say that my brother, sister & I were really spoiled with excellent food growing up. We always ate amazing home cooked meals, my grandparents always made homemade pasta, sauces, breads, etc. My mom (even though she doesn’t like cooking now) always produced really great dishes and never served us any other […]

Easy Mac ‘n Cheese!

Tweet You know what’s nice every now & then, Kraft’s Spirals Mac ‘n Cheese, brings me back. But it’s nothing compared to the real thing! This is my first attempt at a homemade mac ‘n cheese without a recipe. I should call it …’flying by the seat of my pants mac ‘n cheese’, but that […]
