Pumpkin Twist

Recently I saw a recipe on BuzzFeed for a pesto pastry that sounded amazing. Since I've been on a pumpkin kick while welcoming fall with open arms, I decided to take this same concept, but make it taste more like pumpkin pie. Who doesn't love pumpkin pie?

Sloppy Joes

Some meals are just meant to be messy. Sloppy Joes is definitely one of those, so get out a napkin (or two) and tuck it under your chin. There is nothing like a huge heaping of meat piled generously on a crisp, toasted bun. This messy meal will continue to expand its flavors as it sits. I have to say that there are some things that I really look forward to having as leftovers. Continue Reading

Creamy Corn & Roasted Pepper Soup

I'm a fan of grocery stores like Trader Joe's, Sprouts and Whole Foods. As with most things I cook, I find myself having to change things to create my own little concoction. Try Trader Joe's Cream Corn and Roasted Pepper Soup for instance. It is really tasty on it's own, but I can never leave things just as they are. Adding a few things to this, can make dinner seem like it took a lot of effort to prepare. If you're like me, sometimes I find myself in a real pinch for something quick. Here's ... Continue Reading

Gourmet Grilled Cheese

With fall fast approaching, there are a few things that make me happy. It's a time to bring out the boots, scarves, pumpkin lattes and of course comfort foods.

Who can resist that? Today, I'm taking this comfort food and creating something that has changed this classic sandwich for me forever. By combing ... Continue Reading

Vanilla Bean Almond Milk

So today, I'm making almond milk with a twist. You guessed it, vanilla bean almond milk. With just a touch of sweetness, these beautiful specs of black will enrich the nutty and creamy almonds, making it the perfect addition to my morning coffee. There's nothing like a good cup of coffee to get the day started, and I'm a huge fan of coffee, maybe on the verge of being an addict. I used to frequent Starbucks and other local coffee shops like Cartel Coffee Lab, Lola Coffee and Lux ... Continue Reading
