On Instant Pot Baked Potato Soup

Have I mentioned lately that I’ve been on a soup kick? I don’t care that it’s warm outside, sometimes soup is just what is called for…and when it rains, well, that just INSTANTLY puts me in a super cozy mood. I know for sure that is a phrase that I have used in the past….

On Seared Scallops with Pea Puree and Bacon

Note: I thought the recipe I put in had saved…it had not…so THIS TIME with the correct recipe included… If there is anything you should know about me, it’s that I LOVE scallops. Can’t get enough of them, but unfortunately, Frankie isn’t the biggest fan, so I don’t make them at home very often. HOWEVER,…

On Shishito Pepper Appetizer

Has anyone else noticed the crazy of shishito peppers lately? I have started to see the bagged shishito peppers in my store more often, but I didn’t quite understand what the craze was simply because I hadn’t tried them for myself yet. Lo and behold, I did finally try them, and I made them again…

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 French Onion Chicken [UPDATED]

I have been thinking back to this recipe, and I think I found a better way to do it! That seems to honestly be the ongoing thread these days…digging up some old recipes and wondering what the heck I was thinking. But you know, that’s okay. If I can find something else to tinker for…

On Creole Shrimp & Corn

I feel like my weekends are spent not cooking, which is awesome in its own way, so again, while this might look intimidating, you can definitely throw this together on the fly. I think in total this recipe only took me about 30 minutes total to cook up, and the most labor-intensive piece was just…

On Lemongrass Chicken & Coconut Rice

Firstly, I want to do a HARD shout out to my youngest brother-in-law Eddie for graduating from Colorado State University this past weekend! Now, onto this week’s recipe! If you’re intimidated by the name, DON’T! This was the easiest thing to whip up together that it is not difficult on any level, I promise that….

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 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 Instant Pot Daal

Hi Everyone!  I hope you’re all staying warm and cozy as things continue to stay cold and frosty! This recipe is definitely one to warm you up right quick! It’s another dish I usually miss around this time, and being able to make it in the instant pot was just perfect for a quick turnaround…

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,…
