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…

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: 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…

Recipe: Steak Sandwich

As I mentioned, The Russian and I went on a hike last weekend.  The night before, my job had some leftover steak and I wanted to make a snack for the walk.  What better way to use leftovers than in sandwiches?!? There’s no other way. I think this sandwich recipe is great for any leftover…

Hiking Day and Roasted Chicken

Right before it got to frigid to even think about going outside, The Russian and I went for a hike at Noanet peak in Dover. You can see all the way to Boston from the top of the peak, and the climb is beautiful. It was nice to get out of the city, even for…

Recipe: Leftover Thanksgiving Soup

I’m back guys, and I know it’s been a while. I apologize,I have been deep in relaxation mode, and have returned from my hibernation to make one of my favorite dishes post turkey day: leftover soup. At this point I think it’s obvious I love thanksgiving, and those flavors always bring a smile to my…
