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…

On Beef Stir Fry (Cooking with Coworkers)

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…

On Addictive Asparagus

So a few weekends ago, Daisies (one of our absolute FAVORITE dining spots) sent out an email that they were going to be holding a very strictly monitored pop-up market that was in support of the small businesses that support the restaurant and help make it what it is. So naturally, we were in from…

On Cooking with Coworkers: Lobster & Green Pea Risotto

Welcome back to another edition of Cooking with Coworkers! This week, as I mentioned last week, was a risotto dish that I adjusted for the tastes of my familia (salmon is not a fave for most). But that’s the beautiful thing about risotto isn’t it? It’s basically a blank canvas once you get the foundation…

On Cooking with Coworkers: Chicken & Veggie Coconut Curry

With everyone sheltering in place, one of the directors in our department at my day job suggested we do a weekly cooking class together, and it has become a highlight of my week! The first week, we made a really quick and easy tomato pasta dish—which you can find the recipe for on my Instagram,…

On Split Pea Soup

Dear World, What in the good gracious is going on?!? Are you safe? Are you washing your hands? As of right now, I continue to travel to work (awaiting, what I believe, will be an inevitabel Work From Home situation in the coming week or so), but I am keeping my eye out for updates,…

On the Carrot Salad of all Carrot Salads

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!! And Happy New Decade too! 2020…So far, my year has been off to a VERY busy start during my day job (at the end of January, I will have gone to San Francisco, Orlando, and Ohio – February will be Boston, March D.C., and May Phoenix, with a couple other trips…

On Chicken Satay & Cucumber Salads

I finally had a weekend to myself and I thought, why don’t I go ahead and make something different? Lo and behold, I had been hankering for some chicken satay, and happened to have a FANTASTIC recipe for chicken satay by one of my go to’s: Recipe Tin Eats! I have been eyeing her recipe…
