Roasted Garlic and Clam Pizza

I’ve been going through a huge white pizza faze. If I’m making or having pizza I’ve said farewell to marinara for the time being. It’s amazing to me how underrated white pizza is. As someone who tolerates tomatoes and not love them it just changes everything. I don’t know why I haven’t made this switch…

Baked Chicken and Broccoli Rigatoni

I was super excited for this one. I went to the store and they had bulk upon bulk of mushrooms reduced. I knew what that meant I gotta use them up quick. Which I thought wasn’t a issue because mushrooms are my absolutely favorite fungus. I figured I could stew them, I could braise them,…

Bucatini and Meatballs

So it’s that time of year, the squirrels are stealing patio furniture stuffing, to carry up the trees and it driving me absolutely crazy. I thought that ended there, but I noticed my basil plants look a little… manhandled and distressed. So that’s where I drew the line. So, although I’m trying and working on…

Herb Roasted Chicken w/ Roasted Garlic Brown Gravy

I’ve been dealing with a lot of styles of chicken lately. From segments to quartered from brined to smoked. But let me tell you, nothing beats a herb crusted roasted chicken with a pan gravy on the side. Ever since I made parmesan cheese a staple in my chicken seasoning blends its really changed the…

Buffalo Chicken Sandwich w/ Ghost Pepper Ranch

So this is one of my last few post of “extreme” heats because 1 I’ve been told to cut it out here at home because nobody can hang and 2. I really don’t even gravitate towards hot peppers or really much spice in the winter. Which is odd because you’d think if you’re cold you’d…

Spiced Applesauce Caramel Muffins

Okay, summer is completely in the rearview. I don’t want to jinx it but its been rather breezy here in Texas and the lack of humidity just draws me outdoors. But it also makes me want to deep clean, decorate, and open some windows. Also, baking sits in the back of mind. I was thinking…

Spicy Beef and Brussel Sprout Slaw Sandwich

I don’t know what is up with me and slaw lately. I almost feel like I’m forcing it upon you guys! So I had a craving for banh mi, as usual, like clockwork. For the unfamiliar banh mi is a sandwich that has grilled meat like beef, pork, chicken or tofu and some pickled (depending…

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…
