Creamy Bacon and Cheese Gnocchi

I love anything loaded baked potato inspired. Its simple, straightforward and easy. I was really in the mood for loaded potato soup but I really didn’t feel like dealing with a entire pot of soup. Especially since I’m expecting clam chowder in the next couple days. That’s just too much cream based soup for me….

Lemon Sage Stuffin Muffin Cups

I had a heck of a time naming this. When I started typing this up it literally caused me to pause, close my laptop and think. I have no idea what these should be called. Technically these are dressing cups but I don’t really like the word dressing. But its also not considered stuffing because…

Cheesy Jarlsberg Mashed Potatoes

Jarlsberg cheese is my new cheese obsession. I got a Costco size hunk of cheese from ya know, Costco and I had to find many of ways to use it. Now I’m not a cheese experts and there are a lot of different cheese, so I don’t keep up with cheese I have and haven’t…

Buffalo Chicken Dip

With football season here its time to start rolling out some appetizers often. I love appetizers because I love variety and small plates. If I’m testing and sampling out a new recipe, during a football game is the perfect time. Most people are two things, hungry and less fussy about food during this as long…

Broccoli and Shishito Pepper Slaw

I have never been this excited for coleslaw before. So as a kid I hated coleslaw. It was over wet. about 2 cups of cabbage to 1tb carrots. Crazy sugary and just plain one note. Coleslaw as a adult I love because I realized really late that it was my experiences with slaw and not…

Mini Pizza Bagels w/ White Garlic Sauce

It’s quite shocking that in today’s day there is no high end pizza bagels. Side note I haven’t been to every single store in the world so I’m just guessing based off of my experience. When I think of stuff to feed my son who is the pickiest eater I’ve ever encountered, I’m left scratching…

Chili Garlic Corn on the Cob

I was thinking about this one. I was thinking what a terrible dish to eat on a first date. We got garlic, corn that’ll get caught in your teeth PLUS it’s equally annoying friend sesame seeds. We gotta trifecta. With that warning out of the way lets get on with it. I am actually personally…

Coconut Basmati Rice

Coconut Basmati is one of my main go to rice dishes I love it with roasted meats, stew or just on its own. You can turn almost all long grain rice into coconut but just a word of caution try to avoid quick cooking rice or you’ll have a mushy mess on your hands. Try…
