Bruschetta Pizza with Balsamic Glaze

Since posting about the almighty green pizza last summer, I've been on the hunt for a reliable dough that settles my pizza satisfaction and costs less than buying pre-made flatbreads or dough from the grocery store. Pizza is like a chef's playground--there's too many options for ingredients that will make the perfect pie, yet also [...]

Creamy Hummus

I am no hummus expert and I don't plan on being one, but I will gladly smother this stuff on anything. Can you be an expert on that? Cookie + Kate's recipe for the best hummus has so much wonderful information already set up that I 100% recommend going to her blog to follow the [...]

Honey Garlic Chicken Wings

The other day, I was watching Diners, Drive Ins & Dives on Food Network and it was an episode exclusively on chicken wings...and yes, it was indeed the inspiration I needed to tell myself "Hey, those look easy!". Why have I never noticed how inexpensive chicken wings are??? I managed to score a pack of [...]

The Green Pizza

Ah pizza, a quarantine essential. Layered with gooey cheese, crisp pepperoni, and dunked crusts in garlic sauce, right? Sorry to disappoint guys, but I'm actually sharing a "healthier" pizza with you today, 'cause your girl is tired of carby-pizza sweats. When it comes to pizza, I'm a sucker for vegetarian options honestly, but I also [...]

Whipped Feta & Lemon Dip

It's truly as good as it sounds. A homemade dip is a total game changer for entertaining. People just love dips! They love how easy they are, they add a bit of curiosity, they are usually unexpectedly amazing, and hey, at my house? You can dip whatever the heck you want into the dip, do [...]

Homemade Pretzels

There are not many places you can get a fresh pretzel, I know it and you know it. A fairground, maybe a sports event, or a random kiosk at the mall. Either way!! You can make them at home, just like we should be doing since we're all coping with social distancing by becoming master [...]

Tomato Toast

Hey foodie friends!I wonder how many of you are in the same boat as me right now. My apartment has z e r o breakfast ingredients with the exception of coffee; my lunches consist of the most obscure ingredients, and then dinner seems to magically appear as if I wasn't just pacing around my kitchen [...]

Sheet Pan Loaded Fries

The first time I made these, I don't know why, but my brain automatically thought, "These would be badass on Boxing Day." Boxing Day reminds me of eating junk food, having a casual drink at home or at an ugly-sweater party, and relaxing while watching Netflix episodes of Friends. On a totally unrelated note, I [...]
