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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Tomato Basil Bread

I love Panera and Paradise Bakery (as a side note, have you ever noticed how similar those two places are?  It’s uncanny).  I always get the same thing when I go.  I get the “you pick two” with the Mediterranean Veggie sandwich and mac & cheese.  OK, maybe not always the same thing, sometimes I […]
