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…

Smashed Blue Cheese Potatoes

Smashed potatoes are one of the best sides dishes especially in a rush, in my opinion.It has every attribute of a steamy baked potato but with some extra crunch and very little time. When I have a lot of potatoes to make i go straight for smashing. You don’t have to worry about splitting the…

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…

Jalapeno and Cheese Cast Iron Cornbread

In the South cornbread is always a option. Always. Everyone does it differently and its a generational thing. Some recipes have been handed down from generation to generation. Corn bread happens to be serious business around here. For me I like to experiment with cornbread since it receives fun flavors very well and its incredibly…

Broccoli and Cheese Stuffed Potato

So this one was fun. I just really like finding things to stuff into other things. I didn’t grow up on broccoli and cheese specifically around here broccoli and cheese casserole so I don’t feel obligated to keep it completely traditional. The potato and the cheesy broccoli worked sooooooo incredibly well together. The soft fluffy…

Bacon and Blue Cheese Roasted Green Beans

So this is a easy side I made for my mom for a holiday party. The idea was to stand out.  Ya know, it one of those things where what you want to take is already taken by someone else that’s going to be a obvious hit especially if its generally your “signature” dish. From…
