Andouille Gumbo with Creole Roasted Shrimp

The extent of my Mardi Gras education went like this: eat paczki’s on Fat Tuesday (a glorified and delicious jelly-filled donut), get ashes on Ash Wednesday, give up a vice for Lent, reunite with said vice after 40 days. Catholic school, I tell ya. I never knew much about Mardi Gras culture growing up. I […]

Sweet Potato Chorizo Shepherd’s Pie

My weekend went a little like this (if you were to follow me on Instagram, you’d know this already): We have a bit of a Valentine’s Day tradition where Matt cooks dinner. He’s come a long way since our first Valentine’s Day together, and this year was no exception – expertly cooked filet with a […]

Baked Egg Rolls with Chicken and Kale

St. Louis seems to be one of a few cities in the epicenter of  (hashtag) snowmageddon right now. We received about 10 inches yesterday (which in turn declared it the laziest Sunday ever) and overnight, temperatures turned bitterly cold. This afternoon, our high peaked at a whopping -1 and with the combined snow and cold […]

Pumpkin and Chorizo Stuffed Shells

Matt and I have really taken a step back this fall. We’ve had a wonderful, crazy year and are enjoying this laid-back, no plans on the weekend, let’s go apple picking kind of fall. This fall has given me a glimpse of how I want to spend my future: grazing the farmer’s market with an […]

Chocolate Beer Chili

Let’s take a break from the barrage of tomato posts for a second and focus on fall. I’ve been dying for a bowl of something warm and comforting that calls to action a crisp breeze blowing through the windows. And though it’s still 80 degrees here, the humidity is all but gone and pumpkin orange […]

Tomato Tart with Bacon Jam

I’m not sure exactly when I first bit into a tomato and decided that I wouldn’t let those acidic juices hit my tongue ever again. It was probably some poor, factory-grown tomato, round and red as ever, shipped to Michigan in the midst of a snow storm and purchased from the closest grocery store so […]

Potato Soup with Bacon and Scallions

Now that St. Patrick’s Day has come and gone, and I’ve braised more than my fair share of pork shoulders, it’s time to get back to those simple soups and salads that define a greener landscape. Winter makes me want those stick-to-your-ribs crockpot meals, but when March shows its pretty green face around the corner, […]

Slow Cooker Blood Orange Pork Shoulder Carnitas

When I bought the pork shoulder for my Irish Feast recipe for FEAST Magazine, I actually bought three. Three pork shoulders at 4 pounds a piece is a lot of pork in my little freezer. However, I bought three because I was so sure I would screw up the first one. Isn’t that sad? I’ve […]

Slow Cooker Cocktail Meatballs for New Year’s Eve

I’m telling you, the best decision I’ve made during this holiday season was to take January 2nd off work. I can’t even tell you how much I’m looking forward to just one more day to get things together before the new year begins! I have to say though, our break was fantastic and in fact, […]

Butternut Squash Pasta with Pancetta

I’ve spent the weekend in quiet reflection after Friday’s tragedy. It feels odd to write a blog post about pasta as I watch our President talking to the citizens of Newtown, Connecticut. But after reflection, after sadness, and after deep thought comes the act of normalizing…of moving on with life because that’s the only thing […]
