How about a cup of coffee to start…

Well, the day has arrived;  I have finally started a food blog!  For anyone that knows me, this endeavor will not come as a surprise.  I live for food.  It is my favorite thing to talk about, in depth, all day long.  The subject brings me to life, and now it is time to share with…

Crispy Spiralized Sweet Potatoes

I have spent approximately ten years trying to make CRISPY sweet potato oven-fries to with no avail. Well those days are over thanks to the handy Spiralizer that everyone should have in their life. This is my trusty method , you can use one sweet potato or twelve; just adjust the amount of olive oil and…

Oven-Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Brussels Sprouts roasted in bacon fat; A match made in culinary heaven. The nuttiness of the roasted sprouts paired with the salty smokiness of the silky bacon fat- there is no pre-nup being signed in this holy matrimony; I can assure you at least this much.

The best method for making perfectly crisp and delicious bacon.

Mexican chicken meatballs

I was inspired to make these after reading a basic chicken meatball recipe in The Whole30 cookbook. With most recipes I make (baking aside), I read a recipe and use the ingredients and cooking method as a starting point but ten times out of ten I end up adding something, usually to use up some ingredient I have in the fridge. This day I happen to have cilantro and a Fresno pepper so Mexican won…

Bubble and Squeak

I was a huge fan of this dish when I was living in England and love doing my own take on it whenever I have the opportunity….The lesson here is left-overs do not have to be boring. I find that if reconstituted right they are often better than the original dish.
