Roasted garlic and sun-dried tomato focaccia requires a little planning ahead (the dough is best when rested for 8-24 hours), but you will not be able to stop eating this crispy, flavorful bread! I am so glad I stepped out of my comfort zone and taught myself how to make focaccia. With the help of a stand mixer, homemade focaccia bread is far easier than you'd think. A there's no kneading by hand (hallelujah!). Here, I have...
Grilled lobster tails and clams are the fastest, easiest way to serve simple, straightforward seafood all summer long. Guys, I am here to share with you that the best way to cook lobster tails and clams is on a grill. Whether you're cooking on gas, charcoal, or (my favorite!) a smoker, such as Traeger, the only thing you need other than the seafood is olive oil, salt, and pepper. Melted butter is optional, but so so...
Homemade chocolate chip cookie dough cups with no bake, edible cookie dough! The perfect snack to keep on hand in your freezer. What started as a simple idea for a sponsored Instagram post has quickly grown into one of my favorite homemade chocolates ever (really - ever!). I've only got a few of these chocolate chip cookie dough cups left in my freezer, and I'm already feeling anxious about their absence from my life. Another...
This braided pesto bread tastes like summer! It's made with an easy homemade pesto, and I pinky promise it's easier to braid this loaf than you'd think! Braided pesto bread is everything that is right in the world. It's cheese, pesto, and bread. I KNOW. I'm not sure what else it could do to win you over short of baking itself, but if you too are longing for summer to never ever ever end, this one's...
Light and vibrant weeknight pasta with pancetta and peas gets jazzed up with fresh mint and shiitake mushrooms. The perfect spring or summer pasta recipe, and it cooks up in less than a half hour! The history behind this spring pasta favorite runs deep. It's the dish I first served to my now best friend and her husband when they came over to our home for our first co-family dinner party. I knew my friend's husband was...
The crispiest grilled chicken wings I've ever made are cooked at 450 F for 25-30 minutes on a Traeger smoker. You'll never fry them again! My husband and I have been loving our Traeger smoker - loving. The best thing we've cooked up so far? For me, it's these crispy grilled chicken wings. The skin is earth shatteringly crispy. How to make crispy grilled chicken wingsCould you cook these low and slow on a smoker? Certainly....
Asian stuffed peppers are gluten free, dairy free, and Whole30, and they also happen to be simple and quick enough to prep on a weeknight after a busy day at work! I remember very distinctly having the idea for these Asian stuffed peppers and deciding ahead of time that I was going to love them. After all, what's not to like about what is essentially dumpling filling without the guilt of frying? On top of being healthy,...
These mini blueberry streusel muffins are super moist thanks to the combination of butter, oil, and Greek yogurt. Who knew mini blueberry muffins could taste this good?! My absolute favorite blueberry muffins (like, ever) are from this small restaurant in New Canaan, CT called Rosie. They are massive, a gift in and of itself, and if you go first thing in the morning (we always do), you are rewarded with muffins that are fresh-from-the-oven and ever so...
Impossibly creamy cheesecake with chocolate chip cookie crust and dulce de leche swirls. Let me start by saying this: my husband and I are bonafide cheesecake snobs. We've eaten the best of the best in NYC (and no, it is not Junior's), and tear down every which way that a cheesecake falls flat or doesn't make the cut. So believe me when I claim this dulce de leche cheesecake to be damn near perfect. I...
