Sweet Potato Apple Hash

Sweet Potato Apple Hash

This post was featured in the Huffington Post here.  So, yeah.  It’s pretty awesome. I love breakfast hashes.  I actually love pretty much anything containing potatoes, but breakfast hashes are especially my favorite.  I used to buy bags of frozen Potato O’Brien and make them as a special Saturday morning treat for myself. Then one […]

Vanilla Latte Ice Cream

Vanilla Latte Ice Cream

I love ice cream.  My boyfriend and I used to go to Cold Stone a lot and eat so much that we’d swear off ice cream.  It was all fun and games, except one time he actually meant it.  Every time after this fateful day when I’d ask, “Cold Stone?” he’d reply, “I don’t eat […]

Party Nachos

I love nachos, but I hate when they get soggy.  It’s like all the delicious toppings become too much for the chip and it ends up just being kinda gross.  I also never understood why people think that nachos make such great appetizers.  Sure, the chips can all be separated, but what about the big […]

Guacamole

One night, I was talking on the phone with my sister and I was describing the best guacamole I had made to date.  It was awesome and I was talking on the phone with my sister (who is super awesome).  My night was going well.  As I was describing to her how incredible it tasted, […]

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve been doing some research on soufflés in preparation for September’s Scary Adventure.  Everyone says that oven temperature is really important.  I knew that my oven temperatures are pretty accurate (thanks to my handy dandy oven thermometer), but I wasn’t sure if it heated up evenly.  I read somewhere that you could put a bunch […]

Broccoli Pesto Bake

Sometimes at the end of the week I’ll end up with really weird things left over.  A tiny little bit of cheese, a handful of chopped onion, you know what I mean.  Random odds and ends of food that didn’t get used up.  Instead of tossing this all away there are two things I always […]

Cheddar Biscuits

If I could live in my PJ pants, I probably would.  Putting on “real” pants is always the worst part about getting up in the morning, and as soon as I get home from work I switch to my PJ pants.  On weekends, I’ll lounge around in them as long as I can.  I know […]

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 […]

Marinara Dipping 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 […]

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 […]
