Old fashioned comfort food at its best! Sloppy Joes are an easy weeknight meal that’s always a hit. Try switching the ground beef for turkey or bison next! Continue Reading →
Some nights, you just want a big ol’ ice cream sundae. And no sundae is complete without rich, luxurious hot fudge.
Take note. Continue Reading →
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 →
My mom gave me this recipe to try out while she was visiting. She had made it a while back, but in a bigger batch. She said that it turned out a bit more watery than it did when she made it. I think that serving it on top of … 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!
This recipe was a huge hit with my in-laws and friends this Thanksgiving. My mom has been making this for years, and when I was little I couldn’t stand it. Last year, I decided that I wanted to try to make it my self and see if I liked it … Continue Reading →
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 →
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 →
This is another one of our favorite repeat dinners. It’s easy to put together, and makes enough to enjoy leftovers for several days. This is one of those dishes that only gets better after it sits in the fridge overnight. Great comfort food! Continue Reading →
My mom gave out an award to some of her blogger friends, and she included my blog, even though it’s not in the same “genre” as hers or the other blogs that she picked. Continue Reading →
We had a friend in town, and I told him that he could pick anything off of my blog for dinner. He picked a pizza, but I couldn’t only make that. So I added a couple of my tried and true appetizers and a quick dessert. Yum! These are really … Continue Reading →
We had some friends over for a last minute dinner party, so I wanted to try making a baked brie. I threw a wedge into the oven at 300° until it started to get melty, and topped it with some dried figs that I simmered in red wine. I drizzled … Continue Reading →
