Unpopular as the opinion may be, I’ve been a fan of organ meats since I was a little kid. My grandparents used to eat them on the regular, and I spent a lot of time with them. So, thanks to Nana and Poppa, I’ve got a bit of a soft spot for something most Americans

Today’s cookies are a trial for a classic Italian cookie cake that I will be making later this month for our choir’s Christmas concert. These were made as a Thanksgiving dessert designed for everyone to enjoy, including my father-in-law who isn’t much a fan of sweets. Instead of making a mince pie or something else

Just like the Harry Potter-inspired pumpkin pasties from last week, this week’s recipe is straight from the pages of another YA book series, The Immortal Descendants. At one point, the main crew enjoys a meal of Moroccan chicken and olives, which I thought sounded pretty good, so I looked up a few recipes, picked and chose from

I know I have several chili recipes, but chili is one of those foods that can be made and remade hundreds of times and still have room for experimentation. Personally, I’m on a mission to find the chili recipe to end all chili recipes. This one turns up the heat with three different hot sauces,

If you want to try something interesting and new, you’re in the right place. Eggplant is a fruit that doesn’t have much of a place in American cuisine. Most of us have only ever experienced it in the form of eggplant parmesan or maybe on the grill. If you’re in the mood for a spicy,

Don’t let the ingredient list fool you, this recipe is super easy, super healthy, and super filling. It can also easily be converted into a vegetarian recipe by swapping out the chicken for some extra firm or firm tofu. Make it vegan with a cheese substitute. When we make this recipe (as I try to

The hubby and I have taken a liking to a local stir fry place over the course of the past year, but eating out a lot can get expensive pretty quickly. I got a stove-friendly wok from Nana, so I decided that now was as good a time as any to break it out and

Pizza: The Basics

Pizza: The Basics
Posted in : dinner, easy, food, pizza, recipe, spicy, vegetables on by : Jeanette Rueb

Pizza is one of those foods that we order out so often, the art of making it at home is often overlooked. It’s not terribly difficult, it’s super customizable, and it is WAY cheaper than ordering delivery (and less greasy). Longtime readers might remember my Greek pizza recipe from… geez, three years ago… but that was

Chili? In summer?? Oh yeah, I went there. Even if you live somewhere hot, in my opinion, there’s never a wrong time of year for chili. This one even features a fresh summer vegetable — zucchini! The best thing about this recipe is that it’s another slow cooker feature, so you can set it and
