Late Summer Gazpacho

I love me some ripe heirloom tomatoes. Just. so. good. I’m good with just slicing and eating them, but have been wanting to use them in other recipes, particularly in their raw form. Seems like a waste to cook a ripe heirloom! I’ve never been a huge fan of gazpacho, but when I saw this […]

{Lightened Up} Eggplant Parm Stacks

Eggplant Parmesan is a delicious dinner, however I always spend the rest of the evening feeling super stuffed. Its a heavy dinner that is more suited for cold weather, but when I got it in the farmshare last week I had a strong desire to bread it :). This recipe is a lighter take on the […]

Summer Corn & Zucchini Chowder

Summer corn is one of my favorite vegetables. I could just eat a whole dinner of 3 ears of corn, and maybe a plate of heirloom tomatoes. That is summer happiness right there. When I saw this recipe, I knew I needed to make it ASAP. Then, as fate would have it, I got 5 […]

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 […]

Showstopper Roast Chicken

Roasting a whole chicken has been on my kitchen bucket list for a while now. I’ve been nervous because the last thing I want to do is spend all of that time and be so excited and to have it suck. But I have my kitchen groove back these days, so I went for it…and […]

These […]

New England Clam Chowder

It’s cold. Snow and ice are everywhere. We’ve had the fire blazing constantly and are always snuggled under blankets. It’s the kind of weather that makes me want to eat big bowls of soup. All. the. time. This chowder is hearty and delicious and surprisingly easy to throw together.  Serve it with lots of warm, crusty bread.  Or […]

Spicy Stuffed Pepper Soup

I’m drowning in ground beef.  That sounds really disgusting and terrible, sorry for the unappealing visual image.  But we have A LOT of ground beef in our freezer, like I’m talking 30-ish pounds.  We went halvsies on a half of a cow with our friends, and man, that’s a lot of meat. I’m trying to […]

Bobby Flay’s Louisiana Burger

Burgers in the summer are just the best.  The more sauce and toppings you can stack on, the better.  And Bobby Flay makes some great burgers.  The remoulade on this burger is delicious.  I really liked blackening the patties in a skillet with the spice rub.  It added a ton of flavor and kept the […]
