If you’re in the mood for something sweet, savory, and spicy, you’re going to love this set-it-and-forget-it jambalaya. The prep involves a lot of chopping and dicing, but if you put on a little music, it goes by in no time. My recommendation? The band Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. It really sets the tone (and

Sounds weird, right? That was what I thought when my friend first mentioned it the other day. Blueberry soup is apparently quite common in Sweden, where my friend is from, and she said that it’s often used as a cold remedy, much like how we use chicken soup as a “cure-all” here in America for

Crock pot meals are some of my favorites because I can throw stuff in the pot in the morning, turn it on, and have dinner ready in the evening whenever I need it. Meals like that are especially nice when either hubby has long meetings that take him until after or I have to leave

Initially, this recipe started out as a rogue idea for something to take the place of my peppermint bark at our concert refreshment table this spring. It’s an old recipe on this blog, but it never fails to please the crowds. Originally, I’d planned to do a kind of Snickers bark with chocolate and caramel

I snagged the base for this recipe from Hebbar’s Kitchen, another recipe blog that has some amazing Indian food. I saw his recipe for this marble cake come up on my feed one day, and I thought I’d give it a try. It looked so pretty and so simple, I figured it was worth a

Snickerdoodles are one of hubby’s favorite cookies. I’ve made him a snickerdoodle mug cake and a few trial batches of cookies, but nothing has ever really wowed him before. This time, I tried a few different things. First off, bigger cookies will come out softer, smaller ones will come out crunchier. Second, longer bake times

After raving about hers for months, my mom surprised me with an Instant Pot for my birthday! Now, in addition to slow cooker meals and regular-cooker meals, you can expect to see some pressure cooker meals on Apartment Eats! My first adventure was a delicious dinner that took a different take on teriyaki. You can make

I had a giant pork loin hanging out in my freezer and I knew it had been there for a while but I wasn’t sure just how long “a while” had been. While looking for recipe ideas for braising, roasting, marinating, and countless other things I wasn’t super interested in, I remembered that pulled pork

Shepherd’s pie is another meal that tends to resurface around St. Patrick’s Day, but the peasant dish isn’t truly Irish. Many countries have their own versions of this meal, which was traditionally made out of the scraps of a Sunday feast. A “true” shepherd’s┬ápie uses a mix of lamb and vegetables as a base with

While I’m a little late for St. Paddy’s Day 2019, you can either save this recipe for next year or enjoy discounted corned beef and make it today! I hope you had a happy Get Drunk While Wearing Green Day, and I hope you come back to this recipe for years to come. I know
