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,…

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…

On Garlic Confit

So I think I can safely confirm that I am not a vampire simply because of the amount of garlic I like to consume. If garlic could be a scent…okay, maybe not that far, but if the option is to include more garlic vs less, I’m all in (within reason – we want to be…

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,…
