Listen, I love stuffing. I. Love. Stuffing. Nothing beats homemade stuffing. I knew that once I became an adult I’d have to make it from scratch like all of the lovely women in my family. You can seriously take your recipe variations to the moon, the possibilities of flavor are endless. That’s because I truly believe everything tastes tastes with bread. Seriously, it’s the one part of the meal that always fits no matter what. They serve a variation of bread with practically every meal in every cuisine, so when you take that concept and run with it, you get delicious stuffing.
It’s the most, wonderful tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiime of the yeeeeear! Turkey. Stuffing. Potatoes. Veggies. Gravy. Cranberries. Fresh sage. Family. OMG! Thanksgiving will always and forever be my Christmas. I love it, it’s my favorite holiday of all time. Why? Because food, that’s why lol. I love food. You do too, that’s why you’re here. Today’s food lesson is all about turkey. As I’ve said in a previous post, I’m not cooking our actual Thanksgiving meal this year — we’re flying home to visit my parents. But I needed these flavors ASAP and I couldn’t wait. The plus-side? I’m sharing these recipes with you.
My boyfriend hates black-eyed peas. I don’t blame him. Just about everywhere you go, you find the same gritty, muddy textured peas sitting in a thick, pasty gravy that ends up looking grey and unappealing. However, I love black-eyed peas — I just don’t love everybody’s. Not too many people make this dish the proper way, and the end result is usually a mushy, mealy, disrespectful version of this southern classic. If you’re tired of eating mealy, gritty black-eyed peas, grab my hand and let me take you on a journey.
Before you freak out and automatically assume you cannot possibly make this delicious bounty of all-American greatness, just hear me out. I am not an awesome pie-maker. It’s one of the things I kinda steer clear from because I know how much “technique” is involved, and its so easy to screw up despite how seemingly simple it is…right?
Hello, Spring! What better way to ring in the warm breezy weather than with a super luscious bite of creamy meyer lemon cheesecake topped with deliciously sweet and perfectly tart meyer lemon curd?? I bet you can’t think of another way…I’ll wait.
I haven’t had a chance to update this place in a few weeks, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been cooking my ass off lol. Someone asked me to share my roast chicken recipe, so here we go!
Holy balls. This is the perfect recipe for those of you who like to enjoy a big bowl of macaroni and cheese for dinner and absolutely nothing else. It’s beautifully flavored, creamy, cheesy, and with the smokey bite of crisp salty bacon on top?? Oh man, you guys are in for a treat — I’m not even kidding. It’s amazing.
*cracks knuckles* This may be the most requested recipe ever. I kinda get why…not too many people hate macaroni and cheese. If you do, you might be a weirdo.
