Peanut Butter Cookies & Cream Cheesecake

Cheesecake is so decadent and delicious. My husbands favorite dessert is cheesecake and he is obsessed with anything that has Oreos in it. For this particular cheesecake I used the peanut butter Oreos but you can use whichever are your favorite. I decided to make this for my husband as a surprise this week since…

Crispy and Crunchy Brussel Sprout Chips

So I am I huge fan of kale chips or really any type of crunchy salty snack. These are super easy and guilt free. You can eat these as a snack alone or use it as a your crunchy addition to a meal. I used these to garnish a creamy shrimp gnocchi and it was…

Mouthwatering Lemon 🍋 & Blueberry Glazed Scones

I have always loved a good scone. Growing up my mom and I would go to Starbucks and our guilty pleasure was always a blueberry scone or the lemon pound cake to share. To me, there is nothing better than a scone and a hot cup of coffee or espresso. It makes my mouth water…

“Second Day” Creamy Mushroom Soup

I’m baaaaack!! Sorry for the brief hiatus, my husband and I just moved into our first house and what a process that was! Now that we are pretty much settled I figured I would share a yummy Fall soup recipe! This soup is so creamy and delicious with a perfect bite from the mushrooms. I…

Steak Salad w/ Goat Cheese & Caramelized Shallots

This is one of the easiest dinners and a favorite among my friends and family. If you don’t like goat cheese you can use any other cheese in its place or omit it completely. Totally up to you! This recipe makes two salads. Here is what you will need: Small container 50/50 spring mix 2…

Pine Nut & Sunflower Seed Pesto

My husband and I share a garden with my parents in their amazing backyard. My mom grows a ton of basil and we had so much I decided to make some pesto for the both of us. I made two jars of the traditional pine nut pesto and still had so much basil left that…

My Take on The Gladly Chopped Salad!

I had this salad at The Gladly two years ago and since then it has been in my top 3 salads OF ALL TIME. They also serve this at Cowboy Ciao. If you look this salad up it literally has its own Facebook page. Its that good. My husband has only had the one I…

Scallops & Grits

This is one of the first things I tried to make for Ross when we started dating. I think a lot of people get scared to cook salmon and scallops but they are both so easy and quick once you know how to do it right. I add caramelized corn and onions to the top but…

GF Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

As you know I am a big fan of chickpea desserts but when I saw this one with just almond flour I had to try it. These turned out so ooey gooey and peanutbuttery. They were perfect for freezing into an ice cream sandwich because even frozen they were so soft and chewy. Here is…

Cauliflower Pizza! Pepperoni Jalapeño & BBQ Chicken!

This is one of my go to dinners and I think I have finally mastered the crust. The first time I made this it was super crumbly and you could not pick it up like a normal pizza. The trick is a little flour. You don’t have to add it or you could use less…

Shrimp Po’boys!

The first time I had a shrimp po’boy was in Louisiana visiting my now husbands family for the first time. There was actually a lot of firsts when it came to food on that trip, shrimp po’boys being one of them! Before trying it I kept thinking fried shrimp on bread sounded….interesting. Ross insisted it…

Vegan Mac & Cheese

I have always wanted to try making this. Whenever I see pictures of it online it always amazes how much it looks like cheese. I knew my biggest critic was going to be my husband and he really enjoyed this. Let’s be honest, it doesn’t taste exactly like mac & cheese. If you’re going into…
