Black Eyed Pea Salad

Ah, the old southern tradition. Eat black eyed peas on New Years and it will bring you luck all year long.


Fig and Goat Cheese Pork Loin

So… Christmas is almost here.

20 days. The countdown has begun.


Rosemary Cherry Almond Pie

Happy Thanksgiving Eve everyone!

Are you ready to have the feast of your life? To eat more food than your stomach can handle and then eat some more? To bring your inner fat kid to life for this one day of gorging yourself into a blissful food coma?

Fig and Nutella Ice Cream

I happen to love figs.

Fig jam, fig pie, fig ice cream.

Anyway you make it, that’s the way I want it! Anyway you make it. 

Roasted Garlic White Bean Dip

I love a good party. Bust out the apples to apples and make some delicious snacks. Now we’re talking!

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.

Roasted Cauliflower and Goat Cheese Soup

Goat cheese. A history.

Sort of. Let me just start out by saying goat cheese is very underrated and at the same time has become very trendy.

Here in America cow’s milk cheese is king. That and the mystery cheese that is “American cheese”. Hello velveeta! But that only makes sense, I mean, we don’t raise too many goats here in America. The main animal products are cows.

Because cow’s milk cheese is so popular nowadays, I feel like goat cheese has become more of an “upscale” ingredient. It’s old news, but people are beginning to revel in the tanginess of goat cheese. It’s cycling back into popularity.

Cheddar and Herb Beer Bread

Lately I’ve been very introverted. If I don’t have to be at class or talk to someone, I most likely won’t make any effort to do so.

I mean, I was homeschooled, I’m used to being at home a lot. I prefer it sometimes. Is that a bad thing?


Guinness Chocolate and Caramel Bread Pudding Bombs

I learned a couple of things from making this recipe.

First off, if your caramel turns out to be more of “decorating” caramel then a sauce, use it to your advantage.

Secondly, I need to focus on my photography more. Like making sure that i’m not taking lopsided.


Braised Pork Belly Risotto

I love risotto.

It’s hard to believe I hadn’t ever had it before until only recently, maybe 1-2 years. It’s all that I can think about now!
