Cheesy Corn and Veggie Dip

I love a good party dip. I’ve been know to saddle up next to the snack table at a family get together and eat so much chips and dip that I basically have no room left for dinner. This dip is no exception. Despite the fact that this is packed with things like tons of cheese, […]

PB-Cinna-Choco Energy Bites

I have a massive sweet tooth. I think its genetic, so I blame my dad. But seriously, I can’t make it through the day without some sort of dessert. I’ve made a few different types of these no-bake energy bite cookies before and they can do the trick for me from time to time. Now […]

Bang Bang Shrimp with Spicy Sriracha Aioli

Last May, we planned a bachelorette party for my sister-in-law Lauren that involved an awesome cooking class. We learned how to make some great Thai and Asian recipes, one of which was this recipe for Bang Bang Shrimp. It was my favorite recipe of the night and I have made it many times since. This has […]

Zucchini Fritters with Dill Yogurt Sauce

We’ve gotten quite a bit of zucchini and squash in our CSA this year, which is fantastic.  We all love it…Connor has been known to down his fair share of it after it was cooked with butter and onions.  So far, I’ve used it in a galette, put it in pasta, zucchini bread and just […]

Summer Squash & Ricotta Galette

So a galette is basically just a fancy version of pizza.  A very flaky, buttery pizza.  Even though it is a bit time consuming, this recipe is not complex and you can prep a lot of it a day in advance.  It is certainly is a showstopper to bring to a party as an appetizer. […]

Garlic Kale Chips

I was skeptical of kale chips before I tried them.  I thought, “how could that be delicious? A green leafy vegetable cannot be a chip!”  Well I was wrong, they are super good.  They never last more than a day in this house…I just can’t stop myself. I’ve made them several times, always switching up […]

The Best Crab Cakes You’ll Ever Eat

Matt’s mom makes bangin’ crab cakes.  I mean, for real.  We eat them every year on Christmas Eve…with some sort of steak, delicious sides and lots of champagne.  It’s become our holiday tradition and it’s awesome.  We all look forward to this meal so much that we stuff ourselves beyond reason.  I find myself craving […]

Asparagus & Gruyere Tarts

I have shared with you all my absolute love of asparagus.  Well, news flash: I also LOVE balsamic anything and anything made with puff pastry.  I mean who doesn’t love puff pastry?!  When I saw these little gems on Joy’s blog, I swooned.  I happened to have everything in my house other than the pastry, […]

Artichokes…two ways

Remember when I found artichokes for $1 each at Stans?  Well, I did.  And I made them.  And they were TO DIE FOR.  It probably had something to do with the loads of gorgonzola cheese, herbs and hollandaise sauce.  Holy crap people, make these, and soon.  They are worth the work.  Jessica is a genius. […]

Caramelized Onion, Gruyere & Bacon Spread

I love snack foods, especially dips.  Nothing like totally ruining your dinner and stuffing your face til you feel as if you might burst due to filling up on dip.  Apparently I’m a glutton for punishment, because I do it EVERY TIME…never learn my lesson. you will need: 3 tablespoons olive oil 3 ½ cups chopped […]
