When we were little, my sister and I refused to eat plain turkey burgers, so my mom improvised. She added the great bold flavor of feta, which is a very strong cheese, along with spinach, which can be very pungent as well. Then she added garlic to make the ultimate healthy burger. Dust off the grill and give them a try! Or, you can follow […]
In the how-to video below, I demonstrate how to clean an artichoke. I know this vegetable can sometimes seem like a difficult one to approach, so hopefully my video will help eliminate some of the artichoke apprehension and get you steaming and enjoying one of my favorite veggies! Once it’s cleaned and all ready to go, I didn’t want to leave you hanging without any […]
As the summer approaches, cocktails are being sipped by the dozen outside, and barbecues are happening more frequently. It’s a season of food and booze, and it’s all coming in full force, ladies! Also, it’s bathing suit season. Yes, that wonderful time of year when we get to show off our lovely wrinkles, cellulite, and rolls! Juggling the fun consumption of booze and food, while […]
Memorial Day is fast approaching—also known as the official kick-off to BBQ season. So, I’ve been playing around with some BBQ recipes in my kitchen lately, with the latest share-worthy concoction being this sweet, tequila-spiked BBQ sauce. I slathered it on some chicken, prior to tossing it on the grill, and it was delicious! But, I think it would also taste really good on something […]
Pasta is one of my weaknesses, as is Mediterranean food. So, this Mediterranean pasta recipe is one of my all-time favorites! It can be served cold or hot—as a light grab-and-go lunch or as a refreshing dinner.
Billy and I decided to create a deliciously easy BBQ sauce that we both love! It has just enough of a kick, yet it’s not too spicy, so it’s a good sauce for most people. Also, we loved using A&B’s American Style Pepper Sauce in it! It’s fantastic. I picked up a jar of it at the Brooklyn foodie flea market Smorgasburg on my trip […]
It’s one of the last remaining weeks in a silent house before baby Eleanor arrives. This month, I will become a mom and Billy will become a dad. Soon, our world as I know it will forever be changed. I am so excited to meet our daughter, and so is Billy. As I near the end of my pregnancy, I’m really only wearing my Motherhood […]
With Mother’s Day this weekend, I thought I’d share my three favorite places for Mother’s Day brunch in Virginia Beach (my hometown!). You can always cook at home, of course, and, if you do, you *must* try my recipe for Nutella French Toast, but, if you are a local here in the area, and would prefer to dine out, here are a few of my […]
One of my favorite french toast recipes is my Nutella French Toast—one of the many tasty treats showcased in my cookbook, Kitchenability 101. Nutella’s creamy, nutty, chocolaty taste screams flavor. Pair it with bananas, cinnamon, whipped cream and syrup, and you’ve got yourself a delectably brunch-tastic treat.
In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I thought I’d round up some of my favorite Mexican recipes and include them in a holiday-themed post for easier reference. And, I thought I’d give a few shout-outs to some of my foodie blogger friends, who have some seriously amazing celebratory recipes that look delicious as well.
