Weed Infused Elotes Nachos

One of my favorite Mexican street foods are Elotes.  What's not to love about them?  Corn, cheese, crema, all the most delicious things.  But the worst part about them is how dang messy they are to eat... but problem solved!  Turning the classic elote into nachos gives you all the same flavors, but in a [...]

Tahini Stuffed Dates

I don't know about you, but dates are one of my favorite things to snack on.  They're like an all natural caramel candy & are so delicious.  Sometimes I get bored eating dates by themselves, so I like to try out random combinations of things with them... and when I created these a few weeks [...]

Winter Harvest Pasta

So a few weeks ago, I went to the farmers market in hopes of getting some produce to make dinner... but didn't have any kind of game plan in mind.  I just knew I wanted to get whatever looked good at the moment and make something with that.  When I got there, they had the [...]

Breakfast Sandwich with Sriracha Maple Syrup

Who doesn't love a good breakfast sandwich?  They're one of my favorite foods, and are so versatile.  You can make it on toast, a bagel, or English muffin, with whatever fillings you'd like... really giving you the power to fully customize it to your liking.  I always like a classic "sausage, egg, & cheese on [...]

Rosemary Maple Broiled Grapefruit

I'm usually the type of person who likes big hearty breakfasts consisting of full platters with tofu scramble, toast, sausage, pancakes, etc.- so getting me to indulge in a 'healthy' breakfast isn't always appealing to me.  One of the only things that gets me are these broiled grapefruits with rosemary maple glaze & a side [...]

White Chocolate Pistachio Granola Bars

So I'm going to be honest with you guys...  I've never made granola bars before.  Ever.  It seems like something that people make all the time, but I don't eat them very often so never thought about making my own.  My boyfriend on the other hand... he eats them on a daily basis.  I was [...]

Garbage Plate

Right out of high school, I lived in Rochester, New York for about 2 years.  If any of you are from Upstate New York, you've probably heard of the infamous Garbage Plate.  The perfect late night drunk / early morning hungover meal consisting of macaroni salad, home fries, chili meat sauce, either 2 cheeseburger patties, [...]

Pistachio Butter

I know all of you have tried the classics- peanut butter, almond butter, hell even cashew butter... right?  But have you ever tried PISTACHIO butter?!  I'm not quite sure why this isn't sold in stores, because it's just as easy to make as other nut butters.  Pistachio butter is so delicious on its own, but [...]
