I recently had the most amazing Asparagus soup, something that I never thought I would like (I’m on an asparagus kick, can you tell?).  It was creamy and silky and had the best flavor ever.  It was so good that I needed to research a recipe similar to the one we had, because the restaurant…  read on >

Mmmm Thanksgiving, this holiday should be renamed “Carb Fest.” I love Thanksgiving, and especially love the sides like stuffing and cranberry sauce (canned of course!). Aside from the stuffing, mashed potatoes and rolls you need some good veggies to even things out. I was so honored this year when my mom asked me to make…  read on >

Cookbooks to Inspire You      Ever since I moved into my house, I have been much more interested and excited to cook.  It probably has to do with the incredible kitchen that we have, and the immense space to make a mess while creating new dishes.  I won’t lie; I am NOT creative when it comes to…  read on >
