Blueberry Crumble with Salted Caramel Ice Cream

This post is sponsored by Turkey Hill. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I simply cannot get enough blueberries in the summer. I love to eat them frozen, to blend them into smoothies, and to bake them in desserts. The other day I was CRAVING a warm blueberry crumble with a scoop of cold-melty…

Shredded Zesty Italian Beef

About 6 years ago I had just discovered cooking. I mean I could always make toast and EXPERTLY microwave a hot-dog but I had never really been that in to cooking. When I first started dating Matt, he was the cook. He knew what flavors went well together, how to cook all the meats, and…

Stupid Easy Beef Bolognese with Zucchini Noodles

Mediterranean Dinner for 2

Hello Everybody!! Today has already been a very Monday, Monday. Woke up to a clogged toilet, hit every floor going down the elevator in our apartment building, traffic inched along at a glacial pace, and the meeting I had at 8:30am this morning is ACTUALLY tomorrow.

Super simple, healthy, and flavorful – what more can a girl ask for?  The avocado garnish really sends the flavor of this dish into overdrive, mixed with the…

Homemade Taco Seasoning

I’ll keep this short and sweet because let’s be honest, you’re just here for this gal durn recipe for some gal durn tacos, or enchiladas, or salsa, or Black Bean Quinoa Bowls or you know, anything that could use a little extra spice (eggs, hummus, meat, cottage cheese, etc etc etc).  This recipe uses basic…

Sunday: A Day to Cook, Recharge, and Relax

Okay, you caught me! It’s not Sunday, it’s Wednesday – but does anyone really know what day it is over holiday weekends? Even though my work-week will be short (Thursday and Friday) I still need a little routine and order in my life – so I treated today like a Sunday and got to work!…

Strawberry Basil Sparkler

Summer is the best time to use fresh fruit and herbs to your advantage. The price is right for in-season fruits and the flavors are unmatched compared to other times of the year. I dusted off the ol’ bartending skills and put together these Strawberry Basil Sparklers , guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser for…
