Rhubarb Infused Margarita

Do you know how hard it is to find rhubarb in North Carolina right now? SO HARD! Last weekend my family and I went strawberry picking at a local farm and all my husband wanted was a strawberry rhubarb pie. My mom called every grocery store within a 20 mile radius and none of them […] Read more…

New York Style Bagels

One thing I miss most about living in NYC are the bagels. NYC sure knows how to make a good bagel, and now that I live down in North Carolina, it is hard to find a bagel like the ones I used to get in New York. I worked in Brooklyn and on Fridays at […] Read more…

Tangy Lemon Curd

Spring is in the air and when spring comes, all I want is citrus. I’ve always loved lemon, manly lemon water, but lately I have been head over heels with lemon desserts! I adore the tanginess that comes from lemon and keep going back for more. Recently, I made box of Trader Joe’s Lemon Bars, […] Read more…

Apple Fennel Salad

Over the Thanksgiving holiday, my mother in law was visiting and is an amazing cook! She told me she made an apple salad and I was so excited to try it…it blew my mind! I continued asking for more and more and then I needed the recipe. The mixture of the sweet apple and the […] Read more…

4 (I want MORE) Margaritas!

It’s almost May which means it’s just about time for Cinco de Mayo! I am a huge fan of this holiday as Mexican food is one of my all time favorites. Who doesn’t love a taco smothered in gucamole? Or some oven baked taquitos?? Today though I’m bringing out my inner mixologist to create 4 […] Read more…

Coconut Banana Muffins | Whole30

Yes, yes, yes!! Been craving some type of “carby baked good” lately. And I know, I know, TECHNICALLY you aren’t suppose to create muffins or other baked goods on Whole30 with Whole30 ingredients, but hear me out… My husband and I embarked on Whole30 in January and we did great with it! We decided to […] Read more…

20 Minute Marinara Sauce

Super easy marinara sauce coming your way! For those of you that don’t know, I’m Italian. And every Italian girl loves her sauce. My in-laws have a giant garden and can their own tomato sauce every year which is incredible! However sometimes I don’t have time to cook it, or we run out of their […] Read more…

Creamy Vegan Deviled Eggs | Whole 30

Easter is almost here and one thing I truly miss since going vegan is eggs! I loved eggs growing up. Scrambled was my egg of choice, but as I got older I really enjoyed hard boiled eggs as a snack. These vegan deviled eggs have that egg-like taste without any animals being abused or treated […] Read more…

Vegan Irish Soda Bread

St. Patty’s Day is almost here and it’s time to start baking your Irish Soda Breads! This is a super-fast quick bread that is made with baking soda which helps it rise instead of yeast. I love the tangy flavor the baking soda gives this bread as well. My husband loves this and treasures it […] Read more…

Easy Oil-Free Corn Bread

Who else loves corn bread? In my small hometown in Connecticut, there was a nearby restaurant called The Shack (If you are ever in South Eastern CT, PLEASE look it up and go because it is amazing). They make the best corn bread! I love it. But I know it is smothered in butter, oil […] Read more…
