Zucchini, Bacon, and Pecorino Tart.

Zucchini, Bacon, and Pecorino Tart. Have I ever shared with you guys my desire to travel to Italy? I’m sure that I have, but after reading A Table in Venice, my desire is now pretty much just a full-blown NEED. But then, let’s be real, who doesn’t want to travel to Italy? From what I […]

Greek Lamb Meatballs with Avocado Goddess Sauce.

Greek Lamb Meatballs with Avocado Goddess Sauce. I’m just going to go out and say it, you guys, I hate the word meatball. It’s just not very cute, you know? Like MEATBALL?! Hmm, it’s so odd to me and just well, so unattractive, but I guess that’s what you call a ball of meat. Makes […]

Nine Favorite Things.

Thanks for joining me for another Nine Favorite Things post. This time of year always leaves me craving colorful flowers. It’s spring, and in most places the flowers have finally started to bloom, the grass is growing, and the temperatures are slowly starting to rise (I heard it was 80 degrees in NYC on Friday!), […]

Cacio e Pepe with Arugula and Lemon.

Cacio e Pepe with Arugula and Lemon. SO. Someone on Instagram left a comment asking me why I use lemons in all my recipes. My response? I really enjoy lemons (plus they are really good for you). Why else would I use them, you know? Okay, but in all seriousness, this comment wasn’t said in […]

Cauliflower Shawarma Wraps with Green Tahini and Feta.

Cauliflower Shawarma Wraps with Green Tahini and Feta. What I love most about cooking is that you don’t have to follow any rules. You can make whatever you want, however you want, you just have to love it, and that’s all that matters. It’s fun for me because I get to be creative and think […]

Better Than the Bakery Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake Muffins.

Better Than the Bakery Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake Muffins. I don’t know what has gotten into me lately, but I have so many fruity recipe ideas. Like SO MANY. Normally I’m all about chocolate. All the time. The last couple weeks however have been a little different, and it’s safe to say I’m really enjoying […]

Spring Skillet Roasted Lemon Chicken and Veggies.

Spring Skillet Roasted Lemon Chicken and Veggies. If there’s one thing that every home cook should know how to make it’s a good roasted chicken, and one for every season. Roasted chicken is a classic, it’s easy, and it’s delicious. It’s also what I consider healthy comfort food, and really it doesn’t get better than […]

5 Ingredient Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Crunch Bars.

5 Ingredient Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Crunch Bars. It’s been far too long since we talked about chocolate. I mean, a good three weeks, which as you guys know, is a very long time for me. I just got so very excited with all the spring strawberries. Plus I’ve also tried to make a point to […]

Cheesy Tomato Basil Stuffed Chicken.

Cheesy Tomato Basil Stuffed Chicken. All in one skillet and done in about thirty minutes. Cool. Cool. Currently, I am craving the summertime flavors, all while it’s still very much winter time weather here. UGH. Anyone else in the same boat? We’ve had the craziest weather here, going from warmer sunny..ish days, to very extreme […]

20 Minute Honey Garlic Butter Scallops and Orzo.

Brightening up Wednesday with this 20 Minute Honey Garlic Butter Scallops and Orzo. Over the past week I’ve realized something, I seem to go through “food phases”. Sometimes I’m all about tacos and all things Mexican. Other times it’s Italian, and pasta this pasta that. I’ve noticed this before, but I get stuck in a […]

  • Fig Dark and Stormy. A touch sweet, citrusy, and warming. Basically the perfect September cocktail with a good amount of rum (bourbon would be SO good too) and topped with ginger beer. Recipe on HBH today - linked in profile. #f52grams #buzzfeast #autumnrecipes #fall #CLkitchen
  • Spiced Pecan Apple Cider Doughnut Cake. Kind of tastes like an old school apple cider doughnut…but in cake form. It's layered with a buttery, cinnamony apple pecan streusel. And real true secret? A ripple of sweet maple throughout the center of the cake. It's beyond good and best enjoyed while still warm, with a steaming mug of coffee…or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Sooo, the perfect thing to bake this weekend. Recipe on HBH - linked in profile. #f52grams #buzzfeast #autumnrecipes #fall #CLkitchen
  • Creamy, buttery Pesto Polenta with Thyme-Roasted Mushrooms and Chickpeas. The polenta is made perfectly buttery with @landolakesktchn butter with olive oil and sea salt, and swirled with pesto. The wild mushrooms and chickpeas are slowly roasted together with fresh thyme and garlic. Put the two together and you have the perfect dinner to slowly ease into the cooler days ahead. Recipe on HBH – grab the link in my profile.. #sponsored
  • French Onion and Apple Grilled Cheese. I mean? Apples and gouda? Caramelized onions and crispy prosciutto? Fresh thyme and sage? It’s all of the best fall ingredients in a cheesy sandwich. Maybe a little unusual, but something about the savory onions and the sweet apples, together with cheese really works. It’s kind of sweet, kind of savory, and kind of really good. Promise. Recipe up on HBH today - linked in profile. #eeeeeats #f52grams  #grilledcheese
