Recipe: Moms Roasted Potatoes

What a crazy month it’s been. Besides picking up a third job, I’m moving this week and decided to visit my parents home in New York this weekend. I’m glad I did, because I was looking for a new recipe to blog about, and then my mom served me her roasted potatoes. Problem solved. Thanks…

Recipe: Chinese Cilantro Pork

I, like many other 24 year olds with a few (or three) jobs, rely on Chinese food at least a few times a week. It’s delicious. Don’t deny it. Sometimes, though, I feel a little sluggish after takeout. So what’s a girl to do? You probably already know the answer. If you like cilantro, this…

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: Simple Roast Beef

Winter is the time of easy simple comfort food, and roast beef is top of that list. I love to just throw a meal in the oven and forget it while I hang with The Russian and our roommates. Then, when you’ve almost forgotten (or in my case, completely forgotten, notice how the meat is…

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…

Recipe: Pomegranate–Balsamic Glazed Salmon

Here’s another recipe that I love with some great fall flavors.  Pomegranate, balsamic, and whole grain mustard come together in this glaze that is flavorful but will not overpower the fish.  Super simple to make and a sure crowd–pleaser, this recipe is perfect for a quick dinner on the nights leading up to Thanksgiving. I…

Recipe: Beet Slaw

It’s winter time, which means lots of root veggies, and root veggies mean beets. I love beets, guys.  Love them. They’re also good for you, which is awesome.  If you like beets, this recipe is for you.  This slaw was inspired a little by Food Network, a little by my job, which I have written…
