Pork with Red Pepper Corn Salad

Ya’ll…. this Red Pepper Corn Salad is the BOMB.COM. If you’re a vegetarian or don’t eat pork, put the corn salad on tofu or chicken! However, if you do eat pork, it is certainly amazing too, especially having been cooked in my sous vide and seared in my cast iron skillet… so juicy and delicious!…

Pizza Sauce NY Style

Nothing like starting off your new years with a yummy, homemade pizza sauce recipe! A whole lot less sugar than the jarred/ canned stuff, and cheaper if you have a basil plant! You can find a no-cook version in my previous post, but I like that this one uses tomatoes instead of canned tomato sauce…

Banana Nut Muffins

I always buy bananas with the intention of eating them for breakfast, but when I am running out the door in the morning I never seem to want one. Several days go by until I realize my bunch has turned brown and soft and I have to make banana bread muffins immediately to avoid wasting…

Breakfast Egg Muffins

I am not a morning person. I wish I was one of those people who enjoy waking up at the crack of dawn and running 3 miles, but I snooze my alarm at 8am every day. As a result my breakfast is usually an energy bar, or nothing at all. Until now. I am very…

Hay Stacks (Fritos Taco Salad)

This is one of the regular dinner rotations from my childhood. Growing up we called it haystacks, but as an adult I realize most people call them taco salads. This is another recepie you can easily sub your favorite ingredients into which is why I like it so much Ingredients: Fritos (or other corn chips)…

Special K Loaf

This is a family recipe that I grew up on. My mother was a vegetarian when I was young and this was in the regular dinner rotation. When I try and explain what Special K loaf is, I often get confused, amused, and sometimes disgusted expressions in return. I can see how “vegetarian meatloaf” might…

Semi Homemade Pizza

Sorry for the hiatus, y’all! Been traveling every single week for the last 4 weeks. Excited to finally be home, I’ve missed the fresh air… turns out I’m not very suited for city life! There is nothing I love more than pizza, especially when I’m traveling a lot and don’t have a lot of time…

Sweet Potato Fries with Goat Cheese Dip

This was a total experiment. I love sweet potato fries, but ketchup isn’t my favorite dipper for them. Because they are so sweet, I wanted something tangy to balance them out. I just pulled out stuff I had on hand, and I was pleasantly surprised at what I ended up with. I love tangy and…

Healthy Baked Apple Chips

I wish I could tell you that I have the self control to keep these yummy snacks on hand. But if I’m being totally honest, they never last more than 20 minutes after I pull them out of the oven. They are an absolutely perfect substitute for potato chips and a fabulously guilt free late…

Delightful Sugar Cookie Jam Pockets

I recently discovered that it is possible to have jelly filled cookies and my whole world has changed for the better. This recipe is from Stone Wall Kitchen but I added my own suggestions and flare. I like to test out new recipes by bringing the food to work and seeing if any is left…
