What’s up, folks? Can you believe it’s Valentine’s time already? I feel like we were just ringing in the New Year, no? Wasn’t it Christmas like… yesterday? Anyone? Just me?
Well, anyways. It’s our first Valentine’s Day as a married couple, and I know I need to up the ante for dessert.

If you’re looking for a solid desk-drawer snack staple, have I got a super simple recipe for y’all today.
I have been on a really big bring-food-from-home-to-work-as-opposed-to-take-out kick lately. Breakfast, lunch and snacks that I used to buy from around the office are now getting made at home and brought in- everything from coffee, to oatmeal, to fruit, and of course, lunch. But most importantly, I have really been trying to up my snack game- because I can’t keep feeding $1 bills into the vending machine at work. Yes, I love me some Pirate’s Booty. No, I don’t want a giant booty (and an empty wallet). Continue reading
Soup season is here, people. Jump in.
It’s probably hard to sell lentil soup as sexy, but I’d say this lemony version comes very close. Lemon brightens up this soup in a way that makes it both comforting and vibrant- which is perfect when we’re in the throes of winter but are pumped for a whole upcoming new year of amazing things just waiting to happen.
Granted, I’m one of those people who could eat soup when its 85°F outside, but there’s something about sippin’ on some homemade soup in the dead of winter that just feels great, don’t you think? And this is a substantial soup; a hearty meal in a bowl that’s as satisfying as it is rustic. Continue reading
Oh hello, you gorgeous roast chicken, you.
It’s freakin’ COLD here in New York/New Jersey lately, and I’m looking for every excuse I can get to turn on our oven and crank up the heat. Comfort food is the name of the game around here- This week alone we’ve made lentil soup, mac ‘n cheese, homemade pizza, and this here beautiful lemony roast chicken.
Think tender, perfectly moist chicken, scented with lemon from the inside out, with a crisp, crackling skin. This chicken takes about 15 minutes of prep work and is perfect to make on a weekend with plenty of leftovers to last you into the week.
Pretty pumped to share this recipe with you all today. As you may have guessed slow cooking is kind of my jam, and I love coming up with new and fun ways to use one of my favorite tools in the kitchen. This recipe is a total keeper and is chockful of great flavors.
This slow cooker stew is loaded with white meat chicken, sweet potatoes, and a nice kick from a jalapeno pepper, salsa verde, and cayenne. It’s the perfect meal for a cold winter’s night!
