hollandaise sauce

My husband knows – there are two things I will ALWAYS order if found on a menu – scallops and eggs benedict. Eggs benedict is by far my most favorite breakfast dish. Runny eggs, salty meat, a delicious english muffin, and that hollandaise sauce. It’s creamy, silky, and smooth. It’s […]

homemade pizza (GF/DF)

Big R LOVES him some pizza. I do too! But, unfortunately I am lactose intolerant and cannot enjoy it as often as I would like. I found a few products that are super tasty and now we can make yummy pizza at home!

pulled pork nachos

Pork, again! What can I say, we love it around here. This nacho recipe is one of my most popular among friends. It’s super easy and super tasty!

whole chicken – oven vs. crockpot

A full chicken?! It is FAR easier than you realize to cook a whole bird and you get a ton of fantastic meat out of it. It can be cheaper than buying an already cooked rotisserie chicken from the store and you can experiment to make it taste how you […]

pan fried pork chops

My husband is asked quite frequently what he likes most about my cooking – cuisines, recipes, ingredients. He is my biggest fan and most considerate critic! Luckily, he says he can count on ONE hand the number of meals he hasn’t enjoyed in 8 years of marriage. I consider that […]

bacon and egg rice bowls

Who doesn’t love a runny egg? Well, maybe it’s just me. But this is one of my very easy and random creations that we have in our house now probably once a week for dinner!

heaven on a bagel

As much as I like a good avocado toast for breakfast (I am TECHNICALLY a millennial, people), there’s nothing like a well made bagel sandwich. Pair it with hot coffee. YUM.

caprese

Another simple side dish or appetizer! Everyone likes it in the summer. But if you grow basil inside during the winter, you can have it all year round.

brussels sprouts and bacon

Sprouts. I used to think they were gross. Now, they are one of my favorite veggies EVER. You simply have to figure out how to cook them properly.

paella

Oh, paella. How I love thee. I used to think this was such a difficult recipe so I stayed away from cooking it. Then, I tried it at a restaurant once and KNEW I could recreate it with a little bit of practice. So can you!
