Kentucky Hot Brown Sliders

You ever get those cravings for hearty comfort foods? I'm talking cravings for a big bowl of chili, or a cheesy serving of homemade mac n' cheese, or a plate piled high with meatloaf and mashed potatoes. Delicious and unhealthy comfort foods. You ever crave that? I do. I try my hardest to not crave those terrible-for-you… Continue reading Kentucky Hot Brown Sliders

Swordfish Tacos with Mango-Avocado Salsa

It's been a wild ride this March Madness. Crazy upsets, last-second buzzer beaters, and legacy teams falling like dominoes. That's the way the cookie crumbles this time of year. It's thrilling and nail-bitingly wonderful  watch. It's terrible and heart-achingly sad when your favorite team loses. I love it. I didn't manage to watch the Florida-Wisconsin game,… Continue reading Swordfish Tacos with Mango-Avocado Salsa

Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers

It has only been one day since Villanova lost, and with it my dreams of being that 1 in 9,223,372,036,854,777,808 to fill out a perfect bracket was lost with them. Thinking that Villanova was going to make it further in the tournament, I had planned to make a Villanova-inspired recipe for Meal Madness this weekend.

Wisconsin Chicken Shepherd’s Pie

The biggest upset in the March Madness tournament just happened, effectively rendering the rest of my bracket useless. Villanova fell to Wisconsin by just 3 points, wiping away any hope of a repeat championship for the school out of Pennsylvania. I'm actually kind of glad Wisconsin won, because I was going to write up this… Continue reading Wisconsin Chicken Shepherd’s Pie

Gonzaga Smoked Trout Soba Noodle Bowl

Okay, I know. Smoked trout soba noodles are supposed to represent Gonzaga University? It's a stretch for the imagination, but hear me out. Gonzaga is located in Spokane, Washington. I didn't realize that until this past summer. Since Gonzaga is always so good at basketball, I always just assumed that it was located on the east… Continue reading Gonzaga Smoked Trout Soba Noodle Bowl

Maryland Crab & Orzo Stuffed Tomatoes

I've had a torrid love affair with seafood ever since I was a little girl. Unfortunately, living my whole life in a land far away from the sea put a strain on that relationship. It's like a long-distance love affair that has its brilliant, passionate moments...but one that also has its unfulfilled, empty moments as… Continue reading Maryland Crab & Orzo Stuffed Tomatoes

North Carolina Pulled Pork Tostadas

Barbecue isn't just a method of cooking meat, it's a way of life in Texas. I've eaten my fair share of ribs, brisket, pulled pork and smoked sausage. I'm not big on brisket, but it is a Texas specialty at legendary restaurants like Salt Lick  and Pecan Lodge. I've always been more of a fan of the… Continue reading North Carolina Pulled Pork Tostadas
