For the last few years, my fiance and I have been Airbnb hosts. Not only does this help us supplement our income, but we also get to meet people from around the world. We’ve had guests from as far away as Australia! (Learn how to become a host here.) Getting ready for Airbnb guests is […]

Grandma’s Homemade Honey White Bread #FoodBloggerLove

My grandmother’s homemade bread is a staple at any family function. I cannot even remember a time I’ve visited her house (in my childhood or recently) where she didn’t have at least a loaf on hand. This is one of our “secret” family recipes, so I wanted to wait for a special occasion to share it. Today […]

Fried Clam Po’Boy with Homemade Remoulade

I was in my late 20s when I first had a po’boy sandwich. Don’t make fun of my! I’m a northern girl, so I never even saw it on a menu anywhere until I moved to Virginia. These days, we live near an ocean fishing pier, which is home to a cute little restaurant with […]

Beef Stir Fry with Thai Basil & Lime Sauce

I have to admit… I just don’t like more veggies when they are cooked! Raw is fine (I love salads), but I don’t like most vegetable side dishes. I’m a big fan of stir fry because it sneaks more vegetables into my diet. The grocery store had a sale on beef stir fry meat, but […]

Roasted Potato Ribbons with Leeks

  I got a new toy! I’ve wanted a spiralizer for a long time, but I thought they were too expensive, not to mention to big and bulky for my tiny kitchen. Then, Brieftons sent me their spiralizer and I realized I was completely wrong! This bad boy is under $30, super light, and comes […]

Sweet and Spicy Wings (Made In Your Slow Cooker!)

Game day just isn’t game day without some wings! With the Super Bowl coming up, I’ve been on the hunt for a new tasty wing recipe. When I was in high school, my friends and I would go to wing night at a local bar every week (they had a restaurant area). Someone from our […]

Ginger Tea with Lemon and Honey

Homemade ginger tea is about the easiest thing in the world to make, and it is pretty perfect for dealing with an annoying stuffy nose. My fiance, Jeffrey, was a bit stuffed up over Christmas, but he thought it was just allergies. Think again! Turns out he a he had a tiny cold, which he […]

Low-Carb Fettuccine Alfredo (You Won’t Believe It’s Not Pasta!)

I’m a sucker for pasta dishes, but let’s face it… this time of year, I definitely don’t need to be scarfing down a huge dish of fettuccine alfredo! This recipe doesn’t actually contain any pasta, but you’ll be pleasantly surprised how similar it is to a big bowl of fettucine alfredro. And no “zoodles” – […]

Cajun Deep-Fried Turkey and Buffalo Sauce #FreeTheOven

This is a guest post from John McLemore from Masterbuilt Manufacturing, Inc. I’ve never tried frying a turkey, but I have to admit, the reduced cooking time would really help me out on Thanksgiving Day when I’m trying to feed 10+ people! And extra oven space? That would be super useful! Have you ever deep […]

Cocoa-Rubbed Ribeye with Whiskey Bacon Sauce #Choctoberfest

My fiance, Jeffrey, doesn’t eat beef often, but when he does, he almost always wants a ribeye steak. He was a bit skeptical when I told him that I was looking for a way to cook his favorite steak with chocolate for #Choctoberfest, but all doubts were forgotten when he ate his first bite of […]

Pennsylvania Dutch Chow Chow Recipe

Chow chow is a Pennsylvania Dutch pickled vegetable salad. It is usually made at the end of the summer or beginning of fall when the gardens are about done producing. My grandma Reitz made it and my mom made it when I was growing up. Now my mom and I make it together every year […]

Avocado Deviled Eggs

Whenever I see avocados on sale, they somehow magically find their way into my cart, much to the dismay of my fiance (who is totally mistaken when he calls guacamole “snot”). I gotta sneak ’em in if there’s any hope of him eating even a tiny piece. But I love to find creative ways to […]

Smoked BBQ Chicken Legs #CookoutWeek

It wouldn’t be #CookoutWeek without some kind of BBQ chicken recipe. It’s one of my favorite meals! I remember when I was a kid, the last day of the summer camp I attended would always feature a BBQ chicken dinner. They’d start the wood going really early in the day, and by 5 or 6, […]
