There are few things I love in this world more than cheese, but buffalo chicken might be one of them. The other day I was trying to think of new appetizers for Easter (I know it’s still several weeks away, but I’m a planner), and I knew I wanted a change from the standard buffalo chicken dip served with chips. I thought about making some … Continue reading Buffalo Chicken Cheesy Garlic Bread
I don’t love chicken, but I do love cream cheese. Honestly, I could probably just eat cream cheese right out of the container—but I don’t (usually). However, a cream cheese mixture cooked over chicken? That’s the type of protein I can get behind. This might not be the healthiest meal on the planet, but I’ll do a few extra situps at the gym tomorrow—tonight’s dinner … Continue reading Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken
Pizza is amazing, but sometimes, I need to tone it down with the carb-filled crust. (I’m sure by now you’re all aware of my macaroni and cheese obsession.) I’ve seen veggies be used for pizza dough the past—especially cauliflower—and I caught wind of eggplant slices being used for mini pizzas. I loved the idea, so I went for it. I decided to bread the eggplant … Continue reading Eggplant Pizzas
Last week, I posted a recipe about a cheesy chicken dip that was inspired by a chicken cheesesteak from my favorite restaurant. But this week, I decided to post an actual cheesesteak recipe, since I’ve done some variations for the blog before but have never posted the real thing. This one does have a little kick, though: I sautéed some jalapeños from my garden along … Continue reading Philly Beer-Cheese Steaks
They say the best time of the year is the holiday season, but I think Girl Scout cookie season follows in a close second. I ordered four boxes for myself this year—what’s $16 if it’s helping America’s next generation of female leaders, right? Totally worth the money. But with four boxes of cookies, I had some wiggle room to get creative. I woke up Saturday … Continue reading Girl Scout Cookie French Toast
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. But now I’m back in the swing of things and couldn’t wait … Continue reading Spinach and Artichoke Dip Bread Boat
I once received a Snapchat from one of my friends. It was a picture of a bag of fruit snacks that read “organic” in big letters on the front. Her caption was, “Times have changed since I was young.” Today, organic products aren’t just found in Whole Foods. Companies have sought to publicize their use of organic ingredients, and supermarkets have dedicated entire aisles to … Continue reading Are Organic Foods Worth the Hype?
