Caramelized Strawberry and Ricotta Crostini

I don’t want to speak too soon, but it feels like the weather might finally be getting nicer. And that means summer happy hours on the porch! My sister usually stops over after work, and she, along with my mom and I, all hang out on the porch until the sun goes down. I’ve already started thinking about what apps I can make for those … Continue reading Caramelized Strawberry and Ricotta Crostini

Spinach and Artichoke Dip Bread Boat

After spending the weekend away in Boston for St. Patrick’s Day, I was a little mad at myself for getting absolutely nothing productive done this weekend. But I will say, I think the break from the blog and my freelance work was necessary — everyone deserves a break every once in a while.

Or stick together, or lose shape, or taste like garbage…you get the point. This past weekend, I took the easy route. I bought packaged brownie mix. And it’s not because I’m … Continue reading mini peanut butter and nutella brownies

Fried macaroni and cheese balls

Mac and cheese is life. But actually, I just got a new deep fryer for my birthday (yes, that is what I asked for) and wanted to test it out. I thought, “What better to test it with than some homemade mac and cheese balls?” So I did just that. Pro tip: you don’t need a deep fryer for this recipe. You can definitely use … Continue reading Fried macaroni and cheese balls

Mini Philly cheesesteak sliders

This past year, a bunch of us decided to get together for a “Friendsgiving” because a friend of ours, Caroline, had just gotten a new apartment and wanted us to check it out. She made these super tasty Philly cheesesteak sliders that she got from Pinterest, and they were a hit with everyone. Although I didn’t ask her for the recipe, I did copy her … Continue reading Mini Philly cheesesteak sliders
