Calzones

Calzones

Calzone recipes are good for a lot of things (like filling hungry bellies), but they were especially handy last week.  I was traveling for work for a few days.  It was exciting because it was my first business trip and I felt super official plus I was going to Washington and got to see a […]

Ricotta Cheese

Ricotta Cheese

I love cheese. I think that probably 90% of the thinks I make contain cheese.  One day I was thinking about how awesome it would be to make some cheese myself.  I think there was a Groupon for a cheese making kit or something like that.  So I went out and bought some stuff to […]

Mac and Cheese

My boyfriend is away this week house sitting for some friends.  Normally when he’s gone for an evening working at the hospital or out with friends, I like the time to catch up on my girly shows and eat whatever I want.  But a whole week?!  We’ve done long distance before (1 1/2 years total between […]

My Favorite Enchiladas

July 22, 2013
Veggie Enchiladas

When I moved to Phoenix, I naïvely thought there would be tons of delicious Mexican restaurants.  I actually struggled to find any that were halfway decent and not incredibly sketchy/in bad areas of town.  Several places just served grease on a plate and would call it whatever you ordered.  “Oh, that nasty cheese filled slab […]

Cheese Fondue

Cheese Fondue

Sometimes I get a little bit too excited over little things.  For example, yesterday Pandora started playing “Hit Me Baby One More Time” by Britney Spears and I’m ashamed to admit I was so excited, I started texting people about it. Another thing that gets me feeling overly giddy is anything free.  If I see […]

Miso Soup

Miso Soup

As you may have guessed, I’m REALLY picky.  I pretty much assume anything I don’t like must be gross.  Typically, I’m wrong.  The most egregious error I’ve made due to my pickiness was assuming that all soups were gross. Every time I try a new soup, I think back to my not-soup-eating days and all […]

Smoky Corn Soup

Smoky Corn Soup

I’ve been a little obsessed with corn.  I’m not sure why, because I’ve never really been a huge corn fan.  Yet for some reason, when I went to the grocery store the other day and I saw fresh corn, I couldn’t stop putting more and more in my basket.  It started out as “Oh, I’ll […]

Empanadas

Empanadas

I have a confession for you.  I’ve never actually had an empanada.  It seems like something I’d love, right?  Delicious goodies baked in a pocket of love and bread.  It’s right up my alley!  Somehow, I just never had one.  I’ve been on a little bit of a Mexican food kick so I decided to […]

Butternut Squash Pasta Sauce

Butternut Squash Pasta Sauce

My absolute best friend in college came to me with a recipe request. She loves butternut squash, but all the frozen butternut squash meals don’t have enough and the veggies get gross.  So she requested a recipe for a butternut squash pasta that was low calorie and simple enough for her to make (she’s in […]

Fresh Linguine

Fresh Pasta

It took me a long time, but I finally did it.  I made my own pasta – fresh linguine at that. Being a vegetarian in college, pasta was pretty much all I ate.  I had mac and cheese far too often and when it wasn’t mac and cheese, it was some frozen pasta meal.  I […]
