Burgundy Turkey Meatballs

Spring is just around the corner and I’m clinging to all the hearty winter foods. Our daffodils are popping up and I just can’t stop looking at soup and stew recipes for inspiration. I know soon enough it will be time to put away the stews for lighter and brighter […]

Roasted Sausages and Grapes

It’s pretty rare that I get a request for a recipe around here that I haven’t made before. So when my husband asked me to make a “sausage grape thing” he had just saw in the New York Times I agreed without hesitation. As the primary “food person” in the […]

Blueberry Basque Cheesekcake

Wild Blueberry Basque Cheesecake

Basque Cheesecake.. say what? This is my first time making the trendy cheesecake and it did not disappoint. It is certainly a little different than your traditional cheesecake.

English Toad in the Hole

Toad in the Hole? Who in the what now? My husband requested I made this classic English dish a few months back and I was so excited to finally try and make some English recipes. The recipes seem so complex but they really are easy! Toad in the hole is […]

Tempeh Enchiladas

As you may already know I’m freaking obsessed with Tempeh! It’s one of my favorite proteins. I’ll take tempeh over most proteins anyway. Tempeh is easy to swap out in any traditional meat heavy meal, enchiladas are no exception. I would be willing to bet your family wouldn’t even guess […]

Pear Feta Salad

Feta Pear Dinner Salad

I love me a good hearty dinner salad and this one is super easy and the whole family will love it! πŸ™‚ I love the combination of dried cranberries, feta, avocado, and citrus dressing. Yum yum yum! The pears add an interesting flavor as well. I’ve never been a huge […]
