Best Oven Baked Fries

Oven baked fries are a tough one. I’ve made them lots of times, because fries are a satisfying side dish and sometimes you just don’t want to (or these days, can’t) go out to get them. And deep frying in the house is rarely a thing that’s worth the trouble. So I’ve been trying to perfect [...]

Garlic Herb Potato Skins

Groceries have been kind of all over the place lately, both when it comes to price and availability of certain things. When your job relies on a lot of grocery shopping, this makes life difficult. While things have calmed down a bit for now, a couple weeks ago I saw potatoes on sale, and picked [...]

Gluten-Free Chickpea Flatbread

Sometimes getting dinner on the table is rough. I know every night should be something delicious and elaborate, but that’s not always how life works, especially right now. I’m not gonna lie — sometimes a good cheese plate is my dinner. It usually requires no cooking, and I almost always have various components in my [...]

Black Pepper Cheddar Bread

Many of the things I eat are just variations on bread and cheese. So it should come as a surprise to no one that a no knead cheddar bread has become my new favorite thing. I decided to add pepper to this bread because whenever I eat anything with cheddar, I tend to douse it [...]

Honey Mustard Salted Caramel Dip

I’m a fan of pumpkin in the fall of course. But I’m also a fan of caramel apples, but the kind that you eat sliced dipped in caramel sauce. And while some things are generally perfect as is, even caramel sauce can be improved upon. Like this honey mustard salted caramel dip. I know what [...]

Tomato Basil Cheese Sauce

This is one of my favorite things to make at the end of the summer when there are still tons of tomatoes, but you’re tired of salads. It’s super easy because it requires no cooking, but is still creamy and cheesy, and you can use it in a lot of different ways. There are just [...]

Spinach Artichoke Stuffed Naan

Homemade bread is one my favorite things to make, and with a lot of time spent at home of late, it’s the perfect way to kill a few hours or more. There’s something to be said about a warm loaf slathered with butter, but a soft and fluffy naan stuffed with spinach and artichokes may [...]

Mediterranean Avocado Toast

I’m not gonna lie — I love avocado toast. There are just so many different ways you can eat it, that it’s pretty hard to get tired of it. You can change bread, toppings, seasonings. As long as there’s creamy avocado involved it works. In this case, I used this bread, and then smashed the avocado [...]

Pan Fried Dumplings with Chili Crunch

I try to plan meals, but it doesn’t always work out the way I think it will. Something always comes up, changing my plans, and leaving me with odd and end ingredients that I don’t know what to do with. Like in this case, I had a head of cabbage, a zucchini, some wonton wrappers, [...]

Smashed Avocado Toast with Tuna

I have a love/hate relationship with avocados. One one hand, they are delicious and creamy, and nutritious. Adding avocado is an easy way to add healthy fat to a salad or wrap. If you only eat avocados in a restaurant, you may not ever get what the problem with them is. But, I can guarantee [...]
