Apple Cider Slow Cooker Pork

Disclosure: This recipe was originally created for Pillsbury. I’ve been cooking for nearly three decades, operating this lovely food blog for seven years (thanks Facebook for the reminder), and I have never used a slow cooker/Crockpot before in my life. Rather, I had never used one up until a couple of weeks ago. I was […]

Soft and Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Hello, it’s me. I know, I know—it’s been a while since my last post. Per usual, life has been busy and I’ve neglected you a little bit. I’ve definitely been cooking and coming up with new recipes for you, but the whole process from kitchen to blog post isn’t exactly a quick one. The cooking […]

Homemade Dill Pickles

It seems like summer came and went within the flash of an eye. (Yes, I realize the season isn’t officially over for a couple of weeks.) Preserving the harvest helps you hold on to the warmth and joy of these warmer days a little bit longer. That’s where this homemade dill pickle recipe comes in. […]

Black Bean Corn Tomato Avocado Salad

I’m listening to Frank Ocean’s long-awaited sophomore album, Blond(e), while working on this post tonight, a glass of rye whiskey on the rocks by my side. (Yes, I know that technically his album is titled Blonde, but you look at the cover art and tell me you’re not confused by the spelling.) I’m only a couple […]

Eggplant Parmesan

Disclosure: This recipe was originally created for Pillsbury. I had meant to get started on typing up a recipe MUCH earlier for you today. Then—per usual—I got distracted by life (including booking a ticket to Buenos Aires for New Years!!!) and didn’t actually get around to this until the time I should have been going […]

Butterscotch Blondies

Hey! (Hey!) What a wonderful kind of day. If you can learn to work and play. And get along with each other. When I start building my posts I always type in random things to get spacing in so I can add the photos. Most of the time it is complete gibberish that gets deleted […]

Dill Chicken Pasta Salad

I don’t know about the temperature wherever it is that you live, but it’s been hot as Hades in New York City. In the warm summer months I am reminded of the macaroni pasta salads my mom would make for us growing up—mayo, mustard, relish, and hard-boiled eggs were added to the boiled noodles to […]

Herbed Yogurt Dip with Crudite

Disclosure: This post is part of OXO’s SNAP Into Summer campaign to promote their 8 Piece SNAP Glass Round Container Set. All views and opinions are my own. To say that last week was rough would only scratch the surface. For most of the week I actively avoided watching or reading the news in an […]

Raspberry Nectarine Crisp

Side Note: It’s time for the Saveur Food Blog Awards again and I’d be forever grateful if you would consider nominating me for one or more of them. There are a ton of categories to choose from and you should definitely pick the ones that you see most fit, but some that come to mind […]

BA’s Best Buttermilk Pancakes

After making some biscuits I was leftover with some extra buttermilk. (Sidenote: Why don’t they sell buttermilk in smaller quantities the same way they do with heavy cream? Umm…hello dairy farmers of America—what’s the deal?!) One of the dishes on my cooking bucket list is pancakes from scratch, so I at least knew what to […]

Chewy Chocolate Chunk Cookies

So I’ve taken my previously “perfect” chocolate chip cookie recipe and made it more user friendly to those without kitchen scales. I’ve also added more chocolate because everyone could use a bit more cocoa goodness in their lives. My thing with cookies, especially those of the chocolate chip/chunk variety, is that it all comes down […]

Macaroni and Cheese with Parmesan Breadcrumbs

This recipe was originally posted over on Blavity. Go check them out for more great videos. So I might have a slight confession to make…most of the times I’ve made macaroni and cheese in the past I was improvising. I would just fly by the seat of my pants, making it up as I went […]
