Savannah

A few weeks back RD and I were lucky enough to travel to Savannah. I spent weeks studying where to eat and what to do (and stressing about the weather forecast). More or less I covered every item that is typically on a travel checklist. One thing travel prep can never truly predict is how…

Funfetti Cake

Signs of Spring are popping up all over the country, even in Connecticut. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the season than with a pastel cake. Also, I’m a firm believer that there is never a wrong time for sprinkles!! This recipe uses a cake mix as its base and couldn’t be…

Irish Soda Bread

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!! Who’s ready to celebrate the day where everyone is Irish??? I know I am! Before someone hands me my first green beer, I’ll be carb loading with some Irish Soda Bread! It’s perfect to serve for breakfast, as a starter for a corned beef dinner or of course as a pre…

Super Bowl Buffalo Wings

Happy Super Bowl weekend! I don’t know about you, but to me the Super Bowl is just the perfect excuse to eat ALL the delicious food. Chips, queso, subs, pizza… I plan to eat it all! But, is it really a Super Bowl party if you don’t have buffalo wings?!?!? I could put buffalo sauce…

Greek Cauliflower Rice Bowl

The past few weeks have been exceptionally busy with work, wedding planning and attempting to squeeze in a little time for physical activity and visiting friends. While it’s easy to fall into the take out trap I always feel better when I have a home cooked meal. I try to keep cauliflower rice on hand…

Happy 2017!!!

Happy New Year!!! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season! The holidays were extra special for me this year. RD surprised me with a trip to Disney World for Christmas. I had no clue, but couldn’t have been happier. That is until he proposed in front of Mickey and Minnie!!! I’m Disney obsessed so…

Happy Thanksgiving Pecan Pie

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and we are all rushing to finalize our shopping, set the table and of course bake ALL the pies! If you haven’t finalized your pie menu yet, you need to give this classic Pecan Pie a try. I promise it will be a total crowd pleaser! Wishing you all…

Artichoke Dip

Happy Sunday!!! It’s time to celebrate the day where calories don’t count, sweatpants are encouraged and impromptu gatherings with friends and family are bound to happen. At this time of the year many of those Sundays revolve around holiday parties and of course football. Game watching and fantasy updates for RD and festive party menu…

Apple Pie with Cheddar Crust

A couple of weeks ago RD and I were able to take advantage of the gorgeous fall weather and go apple picking! The fall season hasn’t officially arrived in the Northeast until you head to your local orchard and gather more apples than you can possibly consume. We were in Upstate New York visiting RD’s…

Baked Jalapeño Poppers

It’s Sunday! And that can only mean one thing. Game Day Bites! This week I’m turning up the heat with jalapeño poppers. I’m taking the classic football snack and simplifying the process by baking instead of frying. Who wouldn’t want to save time and a few calories? You’ll also have more time to watch the…

Barbecue Chicken Meatloaf

Meatloaf is one of RD’s most requested dishes and you won’t find me complaining since I love it too. In general meatloaf has a bad reputation for being a kid’s worst nightmare, but I remember being excited every time my mom served it for dinner. One of my favorite things to do is taking dishes…

Game Day Chili

The days are getting shorter and there’s a chill in the evening air. Sadly, summer is coming to an end. Although I’ll miss lazy days by the pool and meals on the grill, there’s one major thing to look forward to… Football Season!!! I need to be honest, it’s not really the games I’m looking…
