    Short Rib Burgers

    The weather is getting warmer and that means grilling weather. Let’s be serious, I eat things from the grill all year long, but the summer is when it happens a lot more often. But since it is getting to be grill weather, I thought I’d share photos of when I made these short rib burgers last summer. The recipe is from The Kitchen and I used the exact recipe. From grinding my own meat with the short ribs and a food processor down to the DijOli sauce – I followed the recipe. So click on the link above for the exact recipe! The only thing I changed was grilling the burgers…

    Pasta with Vegetables

    Pasta Melanzane is essentially pasta with eggplant. And while I love pasta and eggplant, my mom and I wanted to add some other vegetables to the dish so that’s why I’ve simply called this “Pasta with Vegetables”. Not very creative, I know, but oh well. The recipe is really easy. I cut up eggplant, zucchini, grape tomatoes, and mushrooms. I put the eggplant in the pan first to start cooking and then added in the zucchini and mushrooms. Once those started to soften a bit, I added in the tomatoes. I cook it down and let the tomatoes start to burst. Meanwhile, I cooked the pasta (al dente because you’re…

    Sitka Salmon Shares + Black Bass Red Curry

    It’s always fun to get some complimentary items due to blogging, but it’s extra fun when it’s food related. Sitka Salmon Shares sent me a complimentary box of seafood! Sitka Salmon Shares sends you fish and seafood straight from the fishermen and it’s all caught in Alaska and in the North Pacific. In fact, the packaging of your fish will tell you who caught it! The way Sitka Salmon Shares works is you buy a share.

    Copycat Taco Bell Quesadillas

    I love copycat recipes for things I like to eat at restaurants. That includes fast food. I don’t go to Taco Bell often, but when I do I often get their chicken quesadillas. They’re so good! Part of the reason I love them is the sauce, so I was so happy to find a copycat recipe. It’s a good one so I had to share with you all! I used this recipe (here). The changes I made were that I used rotisserie chicken instead of grilling my own and since I was using smaller sized tortillas, I used 2 per quesadilla (sandwiching them) instead of folding them over. I also…

    Cabbage Rolls

    Cabbage isn’t for everyone, but I love it. I’ve had cabbage rolls out at restaurants before, but when I saw an “easy” cabbage roll recipe on Pinterest (the recipe is literally called “Easy Cabbage Rolls”) I had to try it! I followed the recipe almost exactly so click on the link for all the in-depth instructions! The only thing I changed was that I used all pork for the stuffing instead of a pork/beef mix. And I used 1 medium onion instead of 2 small. Other than that, I followed the recipe! First, boil your cabbage leaves for about 2 minutes to make them soft and pliable. Set aside and…

    Foodie Diary: Georgia

    As many of you already know, I just came home from a long weekend in Georgia visiting family outside Atlanta. Since I am off for spring break, I went down on Friday and came home on Tuesday. I’ve been to Georgia many times over the years so my time there is mostly just hanging out with friends and family and lots of eating. There are always new restaurants opening near my cousins and since my cousin has a food instagram she always knows good places to go. I have at least 1 other food post from Georgia, if not more. Before this post gets too long, let me jump right in…

    Entertaining and Celebrating

    You may have noticed that around the various holidays I like to post tablescape and decor inspo. I love looking at decor and design! So when I was sent this book, Entertaining and Celebrating with food and entertaining ideas for the seasons I had a great time flipping through the book. The book has beautiful photos for decor inspiration for each season. It has food ideas in such detail. I mean, they break down a menu for you from the amuse bouche, appetizer, entree, dessert, and even what kind of service style you should/could use! This is definitely my kind of (non-reading) book! *This book was sent to me complimentary, but…

    Egg & Pepper Stuffed Toast

    Happy Saturday! Weekends are the only time I can make breakfast that isn’t something I’m grabbing and eating in my car on my way to work. So today I’m sharing a delicious breakfast post with you that you can make for breakfast, brunch, whatever. I saw this video on Facebook a long time ago via Chefclub for this Omelette-in-a-hole. I actually forgot that’s what it was called until I searched for the video just now hence why my blog post name is different. It’s similar to the classic eggs in a basket or egg-in-a-hole, but fancier because it’s got peppers, ham, and cheese. First, I cut up some ham – I just…
