Slow Cooker Short Ribs

Oh man, it has been another long hiatus for me from writing a blog post. I have cooked countless times over the last six months and I have come up with plenty of new recipes, but of course, life gets in the way of sharing them. It has been a trying few months for everyone,…

Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

A little taste of the ROC with this recipe. Buffalo anything and everything is delicious. Buffalo chicken wings, a cold beer, and a football game, classic Sunday up in NY. I miss those days. Quality chicken wings are hard to come by down in the South. I am sure there are a few restaurants that…

Lentil Vegetable Soup

Hearty. Warm. Satisfying. All can be used to describe this soup. Vegetable soup is great on its own but, adding the lentils, gives it a little more body, keeps you full longer. Typically when I think of a hearty ‘stick to your ribs’ dish, I think of milk or cream or cheese, a dairy base…

Mini Pumpkin Cheesecake Bites

Short and sweet post. This recipe is pretending it’s Fall and it’s getting chilly out, rather than it being 90 degrees daily. I have been cooking up quite a few new recipes, just need to remember to write them down 🙂  These mini pumpkin cheesecake bites are the perfect little treat. Bite sized with big…

Meatballs Gone Wild- Part 3

Hello hello hello! Where did the spring season go?! Man, it has been a busy few months. It has only taken about 8 months but I think we are finally settling into southern living. I finally feel settled into my job, I can get to a few places without my GPS, and the weather is…

Meatballs Gone Wild Pt 2…Chicken Taco

Cheers to winter where it’s been about 50 degrees on average! There have been some chilly days but overall, much better than a NY winter. We took the dogs hiking last weekend, which they absolutely loved. It was 65 and sunny, couldn’t ask for anything better than that in January. Back in NY, I would…

Chili with Crusty Bread

Hello everyone! It has been quite some time since my last post. I never knew almost 2 months could fly by so quickly. My new job has kept me busier than I ever thought and it has been great! I’m sure it will be awhile before I have a hold on balancing my new job,…

Sausage, Peppers and Onions Quinoa Skillet

Super simple dinners have been key the past few weeks. Moving was more of a project than I thought it would be. Glad it’s over! Slowly adjusting to a new life, new schedule, new everything. I’ve spent a lot of my time hanging out with my dogs. As long as they have a window seat,…

Chicken Enchiladas with Poblano Cream Sauce

I cannot believe Summer is over. Life as I know it is about to completely change… September seemed quite far away when Alexa and I made the decision to move to North Carolina. Now it is September and we leave in less than a week. Leaving a place I have lived my entire life, a…

Avocado-Basil Pesto

Taking a basic recipe and putting a new twist on it, is what I love to do. By changing one or two ingredients you can make a completely new recipe. This is a super simple, quick recipe you can make in less than 5 minutes. Pesto is not something I have very often. It’s one…
