On Italian Drunken Noodles

I know that this is usually made with pappardelle, but for some reason I just don’t like the way the pappardelle I’ve purchased from the store cooks up. It’s sticky and gummy…so until I figure out what the heck is going on (or just say screw it and make my own), I have turned to…

On Roasted Garlic Tomato Soup

Want to know what my absolute favorite kitchen utensil is right now? The KitchenAid Shredding attachment – it does course shreds, fine shreds, and slices. It makes grating cheese, carrots, and cucumbers a legitimate breeze, and I don’t know how I left it in the box for as long as I did!!!! In fact, it…

On The Best Quick Fried Rice

Do you like fried rice? Yeah I like fried rice, and I have ever since my mom first took me to Benihana * insert fun hibachi cooking actions and noises and flaming onion tower here * and while I STILL have not perfected a homemade yum yum sauce (though I am aware you can buy…

On Chili Con Queso

On Baked Feta Cheese

Well, it’s now official!! WE ARE ALL MOVED IN!!! Maybe not so much unpacked just quite yet, but we’re working on it (slowly, but surely). The fun bit is that my folks are coming for a quick visit to check out the place, the neighborhood, and help us get all the more settled in (while…

On Garlic Butter Chicken

Hello Readers! Man oh man, this month is flying by and I’m so very excited that soon we will be moving into our home! March 26th is the move in date, and as a result, I’ve had to put cookie baking on a back burner until we’re all moved in and unpacked. However, April will…

On Pork Katsu & Garlic Noodles

Hi Everyone, The end of this week will mark a full year since lockdown began, and what a year it has been. So much about how we see the world, how we interact with it, has changed. I know for me, the adjustment wasn’t necessarily an easy one, but when I got into a routine,…

I mean, this recipe…there’s a phrase in my friend group that I hope you won’t find offensive…but this recipe is the tits. MAN!! The trick I learned was not to used canned diced tomatoes, but tomato paste instead,…

On Instant Pot Stuffed Pepper Soup

I’ve definitely been on an Instant Pot binge lately, and another soup I tried to make once before when I was doing Whole30 with Frankie was a Stuffed Pepper Soup. Now, that I’ve recreated it on the stove, saving time by making the soup in the Instant Pot is a no brainer for lunch meal…
