Rustic Stuffed Peppers

Most stuffed peppers have ground beef and rice. This stuffed pepper recipe is what I like to call “rustic Italian” stuffed peppers. They’re cheesy and gooey on the inside and crispy on the outside. They’re so ridiculously simple but so delicious. Make them meatless – simply with bread, cheese, onion and garlic – or add some spicy Italian sausage. Either way, lose the mushy rice and try these elevated stuffed…

Instead, you can save a ton of money and have a fabulous steak dinner that is JUST as good right at home. I swear — you can do it! Start with a good-quality piece of filet mignon (AKA tenderloin) and whip up…

Grated Brussel Sprout Salad

I went to dinner with my lovely mom for her thirtieth (plus a few) birthday. For an appetizer over happy hour, we got this absolutely incredible grated brussel sprout salad. I’d never seen brussel sprouts so finely shaven into a beautiful salad, so of course I couldn’t help myself but to come up with my own version at home. The concept here is that every single ingredient added to the…

Anchovy Peasant Pasta with Crushed Marcona Almonds

How strange is it to have anchovies as the main ingredient of a dish…never mind a pasta dish! In Italy, anchovies are actually often a “main ingredient,” bringing the taste of the sea to the table. I must admit, when I first created this recipe, I wasn’t sure how it would turn out. Now it’s become a family and fiancé favorite! Al dente tagliatelle is delicately coated in an anchovy-infused…

French Tomato Tartlet With Crispy Pancetta

A while back when I was a “wee-little thing,” my parents took my sister and me to Paris (I still feel lucky). I remember roaming through the bustling streets, neck craning to get a glimpse of the tiny window cafes. Each window was stacked high with the most beautiful pastries I’d ever seen. Walking down the street on an empty stomach wasn’t for the faint hearted. To this day, the…

Cinnamon Apple Walnut Overnight Oats

Breakfast is sometimes my favorite meal of the day and sometimes my least favorite. During the week, breakfast is a chore…basically a way to fill my stomach before leaving for work! This recipe was created out of my struggle to make weekday breakfast enjoyable. This recipe is fast, can be made in large batches, and saves in the fridge for 3-4 days. A mix of tangy apples, warm cinnamon, crispy…

London’s Best: Food Scene (2019)

Since I just got back from a magical trip to London with Eric (my hunky man LOL), I wanted to highlight the food scene there A) so I can tearfully reminisce and B) so I can share all these amazing places with you all! London’s food scene is possibly the most diverse in the world. From traditional English grub, to swanky Sushi bars, to the best Shawarma in the universe…

Pulled Pork Biscuit Sliders with Mustard Slaw

It’s hard to find a more comforting food than a biscuit. Whether it’s breakfast, lunch, or dinner, a flaky biscuit right out of the oven is like a back massage after a long day. What if you pulled a batch of warm, cheddar and chive biscuits out of the oven, cut one open, and loaded it with tender pulled pork? What if you then tossed a big bowl of tangy…

Pan Seared Cod with Shallot Caper Butter

Cod is a fish with so many fashion opportunities. Confused? What I’m saying is cod can be dressed up in so many ways! It’s a beautiful blank canvas with endless flavor opportunities! Now that I’ve yapped, let’s get down to the dirty. This cod is pan seared in brown butter. Yup, BUTTAH. We’re talking caramel-colored, salty, nutty melted butter, sautéed with shallots, briny capers, lemon juice and white wine. Make…
