Recipe: 7 Layer Magic Bars

I love when a new recipe just falls into my lap, especially one as delicious as this. My friend Sierra, who is a standard fixture in my home and life, made this for me the other day. It was incredible. I was fighting people for the last bite. This is a crazy simple dessert, but…

Recipe: Herb-Crusted Roast

Sometimes, simple things are my favorite. I saw this recipe on Food Network and tweaked it to my liking. Roast beef, simply done with herbs and served with rice and green beans is a simple weeknight meal. The horseradish cream I made to go alongside really brought the dish together. Best part is, you can…

Cheap Eats: Shake Shack

First off, today is Frugal Foodie’s one–year anniversary! Super exciting, and the year has gone by super–fast. I certainly have a lot more to do in the kitchen so here’s to many more! Speaking of stuff to say about food, The Russian and I went to Shake Shack, finally, last week.  Everybody lost their minds…

Recipe: Beef Stew Stuffed Potatoes

I have a love/hate relationship with rainy days. I hate going out, but while inside, reading a book, I like the sound of rain on my window. I also love eating stews on rainy days like today. Simple comfort food is always the best remedy for a wet and chilly day. This stew is rich…

Recipe: Smothered Pork Chops

Who doesn’t love pork chops? I obviously have a thing for pork (see last post to confirm), and this recipe is so awesome, when I saw it on Food Porn Daily, I had to click on the link to the original recipe and make it for myself. The blog is super cute, a blog about…

Welcome 2014!

It’s been a while, guys. It’s been a crazy new year.  I hope it’s been awesome for everyone, and I’m back now, and have plenty more food–related fun to share. For New Years, The Russian and I traveled to Maine for some serious R&R.  We rented a small cabin in the middle of nowhere.. ..and…

Recipe: Holiday Gingerbread Balls

So it’s the holidays, and I’ve finally finished driving home to New York, spending time with the family, and wrapping the presents. I brought these treats to a holiday party recently and they were a hit. I’d recommend making the balls smaller, though, as they’re super decedent and sweet. They’re awesome though, they taste like…

Recipe: Biscuits and Gravy

I’m not a morning person, I’ll admit it. Usually a good breakfast is what I need to help me start my day, but I am also lazy in the morning, so I don’t want to flex my kitchen muscles or my credit card too much. So what’s a gal to do? Though some trial and…

Thanksgiving Fun!

So lets talk turkey.  Thanksgiving turkey.  How was everyone’s this year? Mine was incredible, we had a lot of family over and had even two turkeys! My mother killed it with the sides and dinner in general. Just wanted to share some photos and my favorite recipe from the night. Mom used a lot of…

Recipe: Mock–Thanksgiving

It’s the end of November, and my favorite holiday is almost upon us.  Thanksgiving.  For most people, Christmas is where it’s at, and don’t get me wrong, I love the Christmas tree, the happiness of spending time with family, and the gifts.  For me, however, Christmas falls short to Thanksgiving, a holiday where all you…
