Whiskey Sour

I think I may have mentioned a time or two before around my little corner of the world wide web here that I am indeed a whiskey girl. I made really good friends with Jim and Jack in college. I tried really hard to be a beer girl but it never stuck ....more

Vegetable Noodle Bowl

I’m going to go ahead and admit that Ramen Noodles were a staple of my college diet, and when I say staple I mean I ate it MULTIPLE times a week.

Linguine with Lemon Thyme and Mushrooms

I’m going to go ahead and tell you straight away that I am OBSESSED with this pasta dish. It’s pretty much brilliance on a plate. I wish I could take credit for it but it’s not mine, it’s from the ridiculously gorgeous and talented Nigella Lawson ....more

Dark Chocolate Buttercream

When it comes to frosting I am of the opinion that buttercream is best. There I said it and I’m sticking to it. Sorry, not sorry and all that jazz ....more

Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes with Pommery Mustard Sauce

I have an obsession love affair with seafood. In my dream world I would live in a small cottage on the beach, wear maxi skirts, tank tops with flip flops and eat seafood ‘evry day. Fresh off the boat ....more

Blueberry Balsamic Panna Cotta

You all know how much I adore panna cotta (just do a quick search with the words panna cotta in the search box above and you’ll find a plethora of flavors). It’s a super simple dessert that will literally only take you 10 minutes of “working” time. The rest of the time your refrigerator does the work ....more
