On Roasted Tomato Caprese Salad & Fancy Cheese Boards

Dear readers, Sometimes, the idea of cooking completely repels me, so Frankie and I will engage in what we have called “French and Shit,” or a fancy way of doing a Midwestern Hat Trick. If THAT doesn’t make sense, basically we do a cheese board for dinner and sip on beer or whiskey. Now I…

On the Tucci Table (A Cookbook Review in Progress)

Dear readers, Over Christmas, I was very thoughtfully gifted The Tucci Table cookbook, and so I of course got right to work in making a handful of recipes this past week! The only recipe I did make and didn’t take a photo of was the Israeli Cous Cous with oven roasted cherry tomatoes and roasted garlic,…

On Roasted Corn & Tomato Soup

Dear readers, I’m on a super soup binge right now, which seems appropriate given the time of year we’re in (happy early Thanksgiving to my fellow Americanas)! I’ve adjusted this one a few times because the first time, I left the skin of my tomatoes on, and really didn’t like it. So I tried without…

On Bolognese (from Scratch)

2021 UPDATE: So I know before I said any secondary meat you’d like (or all beef if you’re not the biggest fan of mixing), but I just did a round with Italian Sausage (leftover from some other meals I was working on) and it was BOMB. By far the best bolognese according to Frankie, and…

On Bruschetta Chicken

Can I just say, after now being in my house for 2 full months, it is SUCH a treat to have the kitchen to myself again. To mess up a little bit here and there (like for this recipe, I made an entire box of orzo pasta when only 1/4 of it would have sufficed…still…

On Prosciutto Wrapped Stuffed Chicken

Hi all, I hope you’re all doing well and staying safe! These are definitely weird, hard, and crazy times that constantly remind me how important it is to find moments of comfort, moments of family no matter how close or far they are. At the beginning of this month, I braced the quarantine and drove…

On Bruschetta Bananza!

About two weeks ago, Alex & I changed up the game plan because of the warmer weather and decided to make a couple different bruschetta’s as part of a delicious and fairly light Sunday lunch/dinner! What a way to spend a Sunday afternoon! Not to mention that Frankie & I spent the evening on our porch…

On Alex’s Pork Noodle Bowls

IT HAPPENED! IT FINALLY HAPPENED! My friend Alex & I finally got our FaceTime’s going and cooked together (catching up along the way as well), and it was so much fun and we’ve already been discussing what to make next, so I’m super looking forward to our upcoming segments together! And since this was all…

On Quick Bruschetta

Holy smokes! It’s been a crazy couple of weeks, and my apologies for not posting sooner! I’ve been cooking and photographing, and attempting to write up posts and edit my photos, but then I get distracted with packing because we are moving at the end of the month! I know that’s a ways away, but this…
