This is my spicy take on the chili my mom used to make when I was growing up. She always used ground beef, but I like mixing it up and using turkey most of the time. Either is really good here. This recipe makes a lot of chili, and it’s awesome comfort food that’ll wake up your taste buds. Continue Reading →

OK, I know…this combination sounds kind of weird. But trust me – it’s great! My mom has been making these Pickle Treats for snacks for years, and every once in a while, I get the urge to make a batch for myself. It’s super easy, but a little messy to put together. The end result is a salty, creamy, tangy, highly addictive appetizer. Continue Reading →

Nothing says fall comfort food quite like a nice, big pot roast. So I broke out the cast iron dutch oven, filled it up, and let the sweet smells fill the house all afternoon. This turned out great, as usual! Continue Reading →

We had some friends over to watch the series finale of LOST, and I wanted to make something that’s a repeat hit at our house, so I went with the fantastic Tomato Beef Pasta. I made garlic bread with it again, and it rocked!

Since I moved to New York, I don’t always get to spend the holidays with my side of the family. I like bringing side dishes that my mom and grandma used to make so that it still feels like the holiday meals that I’m use to. This is the yam … Continue Reading →

Peanut Butter Cookies

This is my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe – it’s the one my mom made when I was growing up. I’ve made them several times on my own, but this time around I used dark brown sugar (the recipe doesn’t specify dark/light) and I found that the cookies weren’t as soft. That and using a Silpat were the only things that I did differently, so I think it was the brown sugar. They were still wonderful, and the perfect accompaniment to an ice cold glass of milk.

When I was little, I didn’t really eat much ground beef, so I’d always complain when my mom made meatloaf. Well, things have changed so I asked her how she made her meatloaf. Let’s just say I was really missing out all those years! It’s super easy and really tasty. It stays really moist, and the dark bits around the edges of the loaf are wonderful! Sorry I ever doubted you, mom! Continue Reading →
