S’mores Ice Cream Pie

A few weeks ago I was doing some outside recipe testing for a frozen s’more and absolutely fell in love with mixing toasted marshmallows into ice cream. It changed my life, and now I want to change yours. This recipe has only 5 ingredients, only needs you to turn on your oven for a few minutes, and […]

Bacon Avocado Egg Toast

bae: 1. Slang for “babe” or “baby.” 2. An acronym for “before anyone else.” 3. The sound made by sheep. 4. Bacon, avocado, and egg—perhaps one of the greatest combinations in the world. “Bae” is a term that has entered the American lexicon similar to “selfie” or “twerk.” It has even spurred articles written in national publications like TIME and The […]

Carrot-Top Pesto with Raw Carrot “Pasta”

There’s nothing quite like fresh produce. In the summer is when there is a great abundance of quality fruits and vegetables for all to consume. After walking the aisles of the grocery store to hunt down ingredients for my icebox cake recipe, I realized I should also find something to make for dinner. I was a little tired […]

Chocolate Strawberry Icebox Cake

I’m sure you’re thinking, “What the heck is an icebox cake?” In its simplest form, an icebox cake is a dessert made of layering cookies with custard or whipped cream, and then storing it in the refrigerator until the cookies soften and become cake-like. It’s a great no-bake dessert that is ideal for summer. An […]

In honor of #NationalFriedChickenDay (there’s a food holiday for everything), I present you with this comprehensive guide on how to make fried chicken. I even created another GIF for you! This is an update to one of my very first posts for a basic fried chicken recipe that I first shared over FIVE years ago. […]

Tomato Feta Pasta Salad

Pasta salad is another one of those summer recipe staples. It always seems to make numerous appearances throughout the season in a variety of forms. Here’s a pasta salad recipe with sun-dried tomatoes, feta cheese, pesto, and capers—aka I had a bunch of jars of stuff in my fridge that I wanted to use. I particularly […]

Summer Berry Tart

It’s almost the 4th of July. Time to show your love for America through a dessert. Here is the perfect red, white, and blue dessert to help cool you off on a hot summer’s day. A tart shell is filled with whipped cream and topped with a mix of fresh summer berries. I used blueberries and raspberries […]

Greek Yogurt Coleslaw

Coleslaw (or “cole slaw”) is one of the quintessential summer side dishes—no barbecue is truly complete without it. Though you can opt to pick up a container of the product from your grocery store, it’s easy enough to make at home (and it will probably taste better). Starting with a bag of coleslaw mix saves […]

Simple Barbecue Dry Rub

Summer—a.k.a. barbecue season—is here. I would call any person that claims they don’t like barbecue a flat out liar to their face—I’m that adamant about how delicious the cuisine is. In my opinion, great barbecue starts with a good dry rub. I’ve shared a dry rub recipe before that I love to pieces, but below […]

Bacon and Blue Cheese Potato Salad

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post for the Castello Summer of Blue #BluesdayTuesday campaign. Memorial Day weekend has come and gone, which means summer is here! For me, summer equals barbecues and cookouts with friends and family. Any good barbecue spread deserves a delicious potato salad recipe. Potato salad can be a very divisive dish—in […]

Banana Chocolate Flaxseed Oatmeal

I’ve shared a banana-cocoa oatmeal recipe with you fine folks before, but here’s a version packed with a little extra nutrition. The flaxseeds that get thrown in with the oats give this quick, easy breakfast recipe an extra health boost. Also, this version doesn’t have any added sugar outside of that provided by the banana slices […]
