Burrata, Prosciutto and Arugula Pizza

If I was forced to eat one type of food for the rest of my life I wouldn’t even hesitate with my answer: PIZZA. It’s my one true love who never fails to make me happy, and there are SO many ways to create amazing pizzas that will make you hungry for more. My second…

Easy Garlic Shrimp Fettuccine

I absolutely love how simple this dish is! As someone who isn’t the biggest fan of Shrimp, I was pleasantly surprised by how much flavor this brought to the table. Truthfully, I’m always terrified I’ll under-cook meat/poultry/fish (working on getting over this), and so I’ve learned a simple trick to cooking shrimp: straight shrimp is…

Mom’s Jambalaya

Cooking hasn’t always been my thing, but it’s always been my Mom’s. Growing up she was always coming up with new creations, impressing my friends and our family with homemade donuts or Coq Au Vin or Beef Wellington or Cioppino…the list goes on, and if it isn’t obvious, we have been WAY spoiled with her…

Honey, Lime & Cilantro Chicken

Raise your hand if you start your day off with the intention of making that healthy meal that you grocery shopped for, only to come home and decide that ordering Pizza is a MUCH better idea? I’ve been on a bit of a health kick lately, and it’s semi-unmotivating to just have the standard Chicken…

Stuffed French Toast

Fun fact about me: I love breakfast, but I’m not a HUGE fan of eggs for breakfast. Call me crazy, but I get tired of eggs real fast and it seems like most breakfast entrees at restaurants or requested meals for when I plan a brunch for friends (insert hair flip) require eggs because they…

Shakshuka

Don’t be fooled by the name…this fancy-sounding dish will be the easiest and most satisfying breakfast you’ve had. Bonus: it’s healthy, packed with good-for-you nutrients, and has plenty of flavor so you’re not missing bacon/bread/etc. Not a huge breakfast person? Don’t you sweat it, as this can truly be an ANYTIME meal. Did I mention…

Bacon Wrapped Mini Meatloaf

Ok, let me level with you: December was rough. I ate my way through the entire month, eating Christmas cookies like it was my job, and downing bottles of good red wine to wash down all the sugar. But…I loved EVERY MINUTE OF IT. How can you not? It’s the one month where everyone is…

Healthier Crunchwrap Supremes

Picture it: New Years Eve. 2011. Starving, exhausted and in desperate need of something delicious and satisfying. This is a memory I will always cherish: the first time I ever had Taco Bell’s Crunchwrap Supreme. The combination of gooey cheese, a warm and crispy tortilla, and the sound of that crunch still makes my heart…

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….

DIY Basic Taco Seasoning

I don’t care what time of year it is, Mexican food ALWAYS sounds good. I know the default when you’re whippin’ up some Taco meat is to just buy the pre-packaged seasoning, and I get it! It’s easier, cheaper, and requires zero effort. But making your own seasoning can be just as simple, and you…
