Crockpot Sweet and Sour Pomegranate Short Ribs with Creamy Polenta

Since I have started writing this blog I have tried a lot of new foods. Short ribs are one of those foods. Until recently, I had never made them, but I am pretty sure they are my new go to food. Basically, I have already made them twice in the last two weeks and no one […]

Trying to figure out how you properly spell brussels sprouts. See, I thought is was just brussel sprout, but […]

Steak Fajita Stuffed Baked Potatoes with Avocado Chipotle Crema

SO, I pretty much never cook steak. I am just not really a steak person. If I am going to cook it, it is going to be a really good beef tenderloin with seriously just some salt and pepper, nothing else. Or a rib eye for cheesesteaks, or a flank steak that I seasoned the heck […]

Plus some pomegranates too (if I knew how to do that winking emoji I so would, but I am lame and don’t). So I gotta say, this is kind of the best healthy comfort food I have had in a while. I could totally eat this all week; carbs, coconut, curry, avocado, maple roasted fall […]

How To Deseed A Pomegranate (In Pictures!)

So it is time I tell you about my little addiction with pomegranates. It has been going on hard-core for about three years now. Actually, I only ever tried a pomegranate around three years ago, but all I needed was one handful and I was hooked. Now every year I get crazy excited seeing the […]

Currently Happening on Instagram.

  • Bucatini Amatriciana. The fanciest name for a super simple pasta that is extra delicious --> cherry tomatoes, guanciale (...or pancetta if you are like me and can't find guanciale), fresh rosemary, Pecorino cheese, so much black pepper, and bucatini. Not a lot of ingredients, but so much flavor. Learned this classic Italian style pasta from @clairethomas and trust me I was skeptical, but I promise you it's so good. Sharing the recipe on HBH today (linked in profile). PS. the fun video of us making this together is coming very soon. #pasta #howisummer #imsomartha #feedfeed
  • Homemade Animal Crackers 🐘🐒 Why? Because it's Monday and Monday's should involve something sweet and something fun. Also because it's summer and I really just love taking things back to my childhood days. SO. Homemade ANIMAL CRACKERS it is --> mini cinnamon baked animal cookies dipped into a sweet berry-colored glaze (summer = natural food coloring). Nothing not to love. Suggestion? Skip out on work early, go home and make animal crackers all afternoon. Best Monday decision yet. Recipe linked in profile. #cookies #feedfeed #howisummer #summerrecipes #f52grams
  • Extra Crispy Basil Chicken Saltimbocca with Marinated Tomatoes and Burrata. Because i've always loved a good Sunday night dinner. This is currently my summer favorite and I'll be making it from now until September --> salty, crispy, breaded prosciutto wrapped chicken, balsamic and herb marinated cherry tomatoes, creamy burrata. VERY into it. PS. this sounds fancy, but it's actually super easy...vid says it all. Watch it, then grab the full recipe on HBH - linked in profile. #recipevideo #howisummer #burrata
  • Heirloom Tomato Cheddar Tart with Everything Spice. Find yourself some pastry + basil pesto (homemade if you happen to have lots of garden basil) + good cheddar cheese (or your fav cheese) + heirloom tomatoes (because it's July and you should eat a tomato a day) + everything spice (it's delicious...especially with tomatoes and cheddar). Simple summer recipes = the BEST recipes. This one is an oldie, but I love it. Linked in profile.  #eeeeeats #howisummer #buzzfeast #imsomartha #f52grams
