Spinach and Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken for #WeekdaySupper

One time I left chicken in the oven too long and it came out a little bit tough. But it didn’t matter to my roommates and me because it was filled with goat cheese and goat cheese makes everything better. That’s like the number one belief in our kitchen. We love goat cheese. There was […]

Dinner Party and Froyo Nutella Banana Cream Pie

In my opinion, spending time in the kitchen with people you love is one of the most rewarding things you can do. Cooking or baking together, or even cooking and baking for one another — either way, it’s a low-key, fun thing to do with friends and family. I love making food and desserts for […]

A Little Taste of Italy: Lunch at Maggiano’s

The casserole came out great, but the chicken was a little overcooked. I have a fear of not cooking chicken well […]

Homemade Greek-style Dinner

I started a new job on Monday, so I wanted to make dinner the night before to celebrate my first week back into the working world. After lots and lots of browsing through many recipes, I finally decided on a Greek theme: Spinach and feta stuffed chicken from Skinnytaste and roasted potatoes in a lemon vinaigrette […]

On the 8th Day of Hanukkah

For the last day of Hanukkah, I wanted to show off some of the holiday fare my family and friends were generous enough to share with me.    My mom put together a delicious spread to celebrate the end of the holiday. A combination of fruit, potato latkes and her take on a Western-style Omelette completed […]
