On Mississippi Pot Roast & Roasted Carrots

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! It’s 2021, and I think this will be a MUCH better year than last year. We are OFFICIALLY working on some projects in our new home, which is AMAZING and we’re so excited to get the big things done (replacing the knob and tube wiring for one, except in the kitch,…

On Creamy Artichoke & Crab Dip

2020 has been…I don’t know even know, and I’m sure a lot of you feel the same. A lot of things (good and bad) have happened, as I know many of you have experienced as well. Last week I did not post anything because my grandfather passed away on Monday. He was an amazing person,…

On Gluten-Free Sugar Cookies & Other Dietary Restrictions

Regardless of whether you stayed home, or made safe plans to travel home, I hope you all had a really lovely Thanksgiving weekend! We ourselves stayed home in Chicago, preparing for some exciting business news I hope to share in the next week or so. But onto what I know we’re all getting ready to…

On Broccoli & White Cheddar Cheese Soup

Does anyone remember the white cheddar broccoli cheese soup at Cheesecake Factory? No? Maybe? I mean…I sure do, and that was one of my absolute FAVORITE soups, but come on, let’s be real. Who doesn’t like Broccoli Cheese Soup!?!? That’s what I thought! Well, again (I swear, my coworkers are on fire with this cooking…

On Artichoke & Spinach Stuffed Shells

Happy November everyone! Nothing makes me crave pasta and cheese more than colder weather, and in honor of the continued effort of the cooking initiative at work, below is a recipe I have adapted for you all to enjoy! I also won’t ignore the fact that today is Election Day, but don’t worry, I am…

On Turkey Greek Meatballs

Do you know what I think has been one of the best things to come out of quarantine and COVID? The fact that I have had the incredible opportunity to work remotely and spend WAY more time with my family in Buffalo at the same time (since my mom is busy doing her own things, …

On Spanish Paella !!!

I have been dying to try Paella for a few months now, but because it was so hot this summer, it was hard to get the motivation to try it out. However, with the weather turning cold, I wanted to make something quick, easy, and filling and decided to try out a new recipe! Plus,…

On French Onion Chicken

In hindsight I wish I hadn’t piled all of the chicken on top of the onions…maybe only 4 of them on top would have looked nicer, BUT that all said, this dish was hearty and filling and just tender as get all! Braised boneless chicken thighs are just THE BEST! Oh, also, I think next…

On Sunday Sausage Hashbrowns

If you read through Frankie’s and my Whole30 experience a couple years ago, you probably remember seeing the hashbrowns a few times on the weekends. This really is a great, guilty-free go-to weekend brunch meal that satisfies every craving you could have! By mixing in your own seasoning, you’re already cutting out added sugars, which…

Cooking with Coworkers: On Beef Stir Fry

Once again, I’m sharing one fo the recipes from our weekly cooking sessions with the coworkers from my day job! This was super easy, and incredibly tasty. No joke, there were NO leftovers! No matter your cooking level or prowess, this is definitely a hearty and delicious meal that the whole family can enjoy! Change…

On Gazpacho

I’m sure that I’ve mentioned Buffalo on here a few times before, but this recipe is a Buffalo ORIGINAL from The Park Country Club. Now, every summer, they would make this gazpacho and it was amazing! I mean, it was cool, fresh, tart, sweet, and when it was topped with their secret avocado cream, THE….

On Salmon & Soba Noodles

Similar to last week’s post, this recipe was inspired by some of the additional filets that we took home from our Charter excursion in Buffalo! The recipe that was used for the base was incredibly boring to say the least (which is why I’m going to refrain from mentioning it by name because that’s not…
