Drew is the king of sandwich making. So it’s really no surprise that he would make something delicious in the form of a sandwich. He is brilliant.
October is one of my favorite months. It’s the height of fall when the weather is usually lovely across the country, and there’s pumpkin flavored everything. When I was in college, I would very frequently treat myself to a PSL before anyone, ever called it that. I think (And I know a lot of people who would agree with me) it just tastes like fall, and it’s coffee which makes it even better in my book. As I get older, the PSL isn’t really my go-to for October. I don’t know why, but it doesn’t really taste that great to […]
This week is all about making foods that I don’t necessarily care for, but making them well and at home! Doughnuts are typically too sugary and just gross to me. But these! This brings it to a whole new level. I really like these, and I’m not just saying that. Drew got this recipe from his mom, who is a fabulous cook and often the inspiration for many of his cooking ventures. His family used to enjoy these babies on the regular when he was growing up! And I totally get why…
These are SO good, and I don’t even like bacon. (They are seriously yummy) I LOVE Jalapeno poppers. They have been a ‘favorite food’ for as long as I can remember. The first time I had bacon jalapeno poppers was at a restaurant I was working at, it was a slow afternoon and we had to get rid of some extra bacon, so someone suggested these. I actually haven’t made these since then. (I never have “extra” bacon, I never buy bacon in the first place) But trust me when I say, this will be a crowd-pleaser!
I know that it feels like summer is over now that school’s started and Labor Day is behind us, but this is a Peach Sangria that will make it always feel like summer! It’s also a great way to use those end-of-the-season peaches. Another mix and drink recipe! Although, if you are sharing, it is best when it can marinate overnight. Those peaches will really soak up the bourbon. 1 bottle of white wine (Table wine is great, not too sweet) 1 nip (Airplane bottle) of Bourbon OR about 1 oz if you just have that around your house […]
Great weeknight meal. Drew came up with this salad a week ago, and it has been on my mind ever since! It’s sooo yummy! These are the kind of “assembly” meals I like, you know, where you just cut and toss it all together. Easy, tasty, and minimal dishes to clean up! 🙂 Enjoy!
July = Cherry Season. At least, that’s how I see it. I have been really excited for cherries all summer, and finally got a HUGE box of them. However, now that I have a huge box, there are only so many you can eat at a time. So I have been searching the internet for recipes. I found this one which sounded tasty and easy, my two favorite adjectives when it comes to recipes. And it is not tasty, it’s divine.
Since living in LA, I have grown very fond of the Paloma, a Mexican cocktail that features tequila and grapefruit juice. No one is exactly sure where it originated, but it is popular, here, among the beach-going/sun-worshiping locals. It’s easy to make, and the grapefruit juice compliments the tequila extraordinarily. It’s the perfect drink for citrus season, hot days by the beach, or as a cocktail that pleases most. Pair it with spicy Fajitas or tacos. It’s this simple: 1 shot of Tequila (I always purchase Reposado, I think they are the most mixable, although you can also use a […]
