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

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

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

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,

This summer, I had a craving for something summery, but in a crockpot. I realize that it’s now fall, but when I wrote this, it was late June. I did some serious backlogging for the wedding… So, I’m sorry for holding onto this for so long before I could release it, but on the other hand,

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,

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 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

Here’s something that’s a little more involved than the usual burger, here on Apartment Eats. The Fiancé and I had a couple of friends over, and we decided we wanted some Asian-inspired grill food, so we put our heads together, got a bit creative, and this was the end result. The burgers turned out to
