Red Wine Tomato Sauce

Everyone needs a good tomato sauce recipe.  This red wine tomato sauce one is my favorite since it can be used for anything from pastas to dips and even on pizza.  I think pizza is probably my favorite application of tomato sauce….and cheese…and bread.  Pizza is amazing. But back to this red wine tomato sauce. […]

Tomato Sauce

Sometimes you really need a tomato sauce and you don’t have one.  Maybe you made calzones or mozzarella sticks.  It’s tempting to just pick some up at the store but if you want to save some money or if you just don’t want to go to the store, it’s easy to make a tasty tomato […]

My Favorite Enchiladas

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

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 […]

This sauce makes a great dipping sauce for spring rolls or a sauce to go on meats, stir fry, veggies, or even pasta.  It’s very versatile and has an Asian flavor to it.  Try it with whatever your making next time that’s Asian themed and it’ll really bring the whole dish up a level.  My […]

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 […]

Honey Wheat Pretzels

Wow, things have been busy here.  I’ve been working full time, I had two tests since I last posted, and I visited my sister in Atlanta.  Whew.  Luckily, it’s the weekend and I’ve FINALLY had time to make something worthy of posting.  Pretzels!  Since I’ve been so bad about posting, I also included a recipe […]

Mushroom and Chickpea Masala

I love Indian restaurants.  The food is always delicious and flavorful, and my boyfriend and I can both order something we love.  He can get something with meat while I get something vegetarian.  We split some naan, and we’re good to go!  I’ve decided I’m going to go to India and just eat everything there.  I […]

Chunky Salsa (and how I met my boyfriend)

chunky salsa

Salsa is part of the reason why my boyfriend and I are together. The story of this chunky salsa goes back even further than that though.  My sister got this recipe from a chef in Mexico that prepared the food at the hotel where she was staying during a trip.  She loved the salsa so […]
