Sunday Pot Roast

Monday bloody Mondayyyy!

Wrong day? Woops, my bad.

For some reason that song has been stuck in my head for about 2 weeks now. Everytime I hear, or even think about the word Sunday that chorus line immediately pops into my head.

Turkey and Fig Meatballs

I’m finally starting to feel a little more normal after ACL.

I’ve gotten over that first initial exhaustion of being out in the hot sun all day for several days, lack of sleep, and lack of food.

Italian Sausage Bread Salad (Panzanella)

I have two words to say to you guys.

Bread Salad.


It is real and it is delicious.

Cherry Tomato and Goat Cheese Bruschetta

Bruschetta is probably one of my all time favorite comfort foods.

It’s got that bready carby deliciousness going on that is just so hard to resist. Even when I was little I absolutely loved this stuff. I remember going to one of my dads work parties and they had a plate of bruschetta sitting out. I’m pretty sure I ate that whole plate by myself and I was, lets see, probably 6 at the time.


Braised Chicken Thighs with Mushrooms and Onions

It may be summer, but sometimes you just crave comfort food. The hearty one pot meal kind of comfort food.

Sure, you have summertime comforts, but i’m talking warm you up in your stomach kind of comfort.

This is one of those dishes.


Balsamic Braised Mushrooms with Couscous

So now that it’s almost the end of January already I have one question. How are those healthy new years resolutions coming?
Tossed out the window January 2nd?! Woo, i’m not alone!
If anyone’s read my blog lately they will see that I have definitely not been eating healthy lately.
My diets become filled with sugar, butter, cream and fat. Healthy right?


Bacon Wrapped Chicken Thighs with Fresh Strawberry Spinach Salad

Ah Summer…

Shining blue skies, lazy days by the pool, tanning on the roof…

Wait what?


Braised Chicken Thighs


I feel like a little kid.
This is the firs time anyone’s ever sent me anything to review and do you know how exciting that is?!
To receive this package was like Christmas morning! Especially with the pretty purple bow, I loved it!

Guinness Braised Doves

I love culinary school.
I know, it’s only my semester doing it, and i’m only taking 2 of the basic classes I need, but honestly so far it’s been great.
