3 Ingredient Creamy Polenta

Ohh the flavor and creaminess of this bomb Polenta will make you a true believer in everything that is Polenta. If you’re not a fan, I feel ya. I lean more towards mashed potatoes if I’m making a side dish, and something about corn meal and water just doesn’t sound appetizing. But I’m here to…

Homemade Pico de Gallo

We are currently living in the foodie culture. We Pinterest recipes to impress, there are thousands of food blogs on how to make the most intricate and complicated meals; heck, there’s even a Netflix special on “Baking Fails”. However, sometimes the most simple and classic of recipes can be the best. Enter: Pico de Gallo….

Pumpkin Cornbread

Just admit it: Fall is the best time of year. It’s no longer over 90 degrees out and you don’t have to feel guilty inhaling all your favorite comfort foods, in addition to it finally being acceptable to eat pumpkin-flavored goodies again. I fall in love (pun-intended…) with squash all over again year after year,…

French Onion Soup

Let me level with you: this was the most nervous I’ve ever been to make a meal. FOS has always seemed WAY too fancy for me and I assumed it took attention to detail and patience that I just don’t have. Prior to making this, I did a lot of research on different recipes…from Julia…

Mexican Street Corn Salad

In true Cinco De Mayo fashion, here’s an easy and freaking delicious appetizer for your boozy brunch or happy hour! I’ve become really proud of this recipe, as I’ve tried adding different flavors and ingredients to try to get it perfect. Can’t wait to hear what you think… My favorite part about this recipe (aside…

Lil’ Taco Cups

Hosting happy hour in 1 hour. Haven’t showered, still cleaning, thinking  “do I have time to go to the store?” all while running through random items in the fridge completely panicking on what to make. We’ve all been there…the stress of picking a VERY last minute appetizer, because no one wants to be the friend…

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Full disclosure: I’m not a huge “baker”…the endless amount of very specific ingredients and the stress of it coming out just perfect is a little too tedious for me. With that being said, this recipe is pain-less and surprisingly really easy to make (hence why it’s making a blog appearance). I’m not gonna brag, but…this…

Stuffed Mushrooms

Over the holidays I wanted to make an easy app (definitely my favorite phrase) that would be a crowd pleaser. I’m SUCH a sucker for anything that involves butter, bacon or cheese and so these little goodies satisfied all my cravings. Perfect snack for a hungry crowd, and the key word here: easy! P R…

Jalapeno Bacon Poppers

The title says it all…with cheese, BBQ sauce and bacon you will be the hit of any party. I just recently made these for a family Christmas party, and as soon as someone heard “bacon”, they were gone. I will say the prep for these bad boys is a little tedious, however if you take…

Addictive Roasted Cashews

 Got a party to go to in an hour and need a quick appetizer to bring? Let me hook you up with my all time favorite (and easy) appetizer, Roasted Cashews! This takes a total of 15 minutes from start to finish, and you’ll want to inhale the entire 2 pounds of cashews in one…
