Garlic & Thyme Prime Rib

This whole being a food photographer is working out pretty good for me lately! After completing a bunch of burger photos, I had an abundance of leftover ingredients, including this beautiful prime rib, which I felt would be a shame to put it in my freezer (it gives everything terrible freezer burn), so I set out a plan to cook it right away! I kept it simple, rubbing the prime rib with thyme, garlic, salt, and pepper, and roasted it with a bunch of beautiful vegetables ....more

Slow Cooker Chili

This post is inspired by neglect! Specifically by two things I’ve been neglecting – blogging, and my poor little slow cooker, tucked away under the sink. I suppose it could also be about my neglect for cooking substantial meals, as of late ....more

Pan Roasted Pork Chop on Potato, Kale, & Broccoli with Pan Gravy

Lately I have been very busy with work, which is great, but being self-employed, it often means I keep very strange hours, without a lot of structure to my day. As a result, my diet gets pretty messed up. Instead of having a work day broken up into 2 breaks and a lunch, I might wake up at 10:00AM one day, work until 4:00 in the morning, then have to get up at 7:00am the next day for a photoshoot, and due to the typical quick turnaround, stay up very lately again editing everything ....more

It seems as though I’m having a bit of a moment with pumpkin these days…Fortunately, this post moves away from “pumpkin spice” and features a different spice. Curry! If you want to make this soup really easy, use canned pumpkin, or you can go the extra mile and make your own pureed pumpkin ....more

Rustic Italian Pizza

My recent adventures in pizza began last week, when I had a few people over for pizza before heading to the Beach House concert. Although I made many delicious pizzas, given that I was hosting people, I didn’t have time to take any pictures for the blog! Fortunately I had a bunch of dough leftover, and some free time, so I went about making some more delicious pizza for the blog ....more

Beet, Arugula, & Macedonian Feta Pizza with Honey Balsamic

This pizza has been on my mind for quite some time! After the popularity of my Beet, Arugula, and Goat Cheese Grilled Cheese, I thought that same idea would transfer quite well into pizza format! I was definitely right! ...more

Pumpkin Spice Dessert Pizza

Well now I’ve done it…I had leftover pizza dough, and leftover Spiced Pumpkin Mix, so naturally I combined the two… How could I not!? I have always loved dessert pizza, and the idea of pumpkin spice dessert pizza was way too tempting! Probably gonna OD on pumpkin spice pretty soon… I actually have a guilty confession to make ....more
