Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

2013-02-13_RoastedTomatilloSalsa-250px

Don’t you love that moment when your spouse (or kids, friends, you get the idea) eats a dish containing a food that they supposedly “don’t like” and have a food epiphany? As soon as someone tells me that they don’t care for a particular food, I consider it my personal mission to create a dish…

Sausage Ragù

Perhaps this blog post should be titled “The Best Sauce Ever”…  However, that’s a fairly subjective claim to make.  If you ask my husband, though, he’ll tell you this is not only the best sauce ever, but that it is the best thing I have ever made. So, while this rich meat sauce is certainly…

Simple Roasted Tomato Basil Sauce

Most years, I attempt to grow tomatoes in the garden.  In the past, I’ve never had luck with anything but cherry tomatoes.  I’ve been lucky to get one or two ripe tomatoes off of my plants throughout the entire summer.  This year, however, I seem to have developed a knack for tomatoes.  I started heirloom tomato plants…

Italian Turkey Meatloaf

Meatloaf is one of those foods that is often overlooked in my kitchen.  I have nothing against it. In fact, I quite like it.  I just don’t usually think to make it, and it doesn’t make its way into the weekly menu very often. A few weeks ago, though, my mom mentioned that she had…

Bacon Horseradish Onion Dip

I hear there’s a big football game on this weekend…  That’s right, it’s Super Bowl weekend. Of course, the Ravens are out of it now, so I’m not as excited about the game.  But, I still have the commercials and the half-time show.  And, of course, there’s the food. Even if you don’t really like…

Baked Ziti Casserole

When it comes to dinner parties around the holidays, I am all for thinking outside the box. Turkey, ham, and roast beef are fantastic, but sometimes I think it’s fun to do something a bit more casual and cozy, especially for a small gathering of friends or family! Casseroles are a great way to keep…

Can you believe October is right around the corner? I’m not entirely sure where September went, but I am ready for October. It happens to be my favorite month of the year (and not just because I have a birthday in October)! All of my favorite foods are readily available (like apples and pumpkins), and it is…

Balsamic Onion, Apple, and Gorgonzola Pizza

2011-09-21_AppleOnionPizza-250px

A lot of times my recipe ideas aren’t really recipe ideas but flavor combinations that I just can’t get out of my head. This recipe is a perfect example. For days, I couldn’t stop thinking about how I wanted to make something with caramelized onions, apples, and gorgonzola cheese. I didn’t care what the recipe…

The word on the street is that a hurricane is headed for the East coast… Just a few days after an earthquake! It’s crazy out there! So, if you’re rained in this weekend, why not spend some time in the kitchen? Here are a few recipes to get you started… I cannot wait to make…

Friday Favorites – Episode 79

With the Super Bowl this weekend, it only seemed appropriate that I should share some game day, snack worthy recipes as a part of this week’s Friday Favorites. Some of these are “traditional” football food, while others are not… Either way, I’m sure they’ll be a big hit at your Super Bowl party!
