dinosaur cornbread

If you’re not from Syracuse, you’re wondering if I made you cornbread in the shape of a dinosaur. Like the dinosaur chicken nuggets from elementary school! Because everything tastes better when it’s in a bizarre shape, right?! No. Just a copycat Dinosaur BBQ cornbread recipe that I was given by my home cook idol/second mother,…

whole wheat chocolate pomegranate bread

Here it is, the quintessential “basic” photo of fall: A few weeks ago when I made this forbidden rice with pomegranate seeds, I had some leftover seeds. At first I thought, “Salad!” and then I thought “Chocolate!” Chocolate always wins. After ruining my shirt with the last pomegranate, I figured there has to be a…

portuguese sweet bread

Another installment of Easter food that is coming at you about 349 days too early. An Easter tradition in our family used to be wearing coordinated outfits lovingly made by my mom. Yes I actually was one of the ugliest children in the world. The GS informed me that one of the Easter traditions in…

buffalo chicken pull-apart bread

What are you asking Santa for this year? Kevin, in case you’re wondering, is looking for a Kindle Fire and Beats by Dre headphones. His justification is that he’ll start reading more if he gets a Kindle, and will start listening to the Rocky soundtrack before his basketball games if he gets $300 headphones. I’m…

habanero beer bread

I made this bread to go with the butternut squash and couscous stew. Who cares that the stew has carbs in it already? Throw me some more. I made beer bread once before but this one is BETTER. It’s spicy and cheesy. I was cooking up a storm and got a notification that I had…

three cheese & arugula flatbread

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July! I spent the long weekend in Rhode Island meeting the majority of the GS’s family, and therefore withholding many of my natural instincts. Just kidding, I was myself minus some of the compulsive sarcasm. It was absolutely beautiful there. There was a lot of sunning and…

vegetable paninis

I’m hoping that by posting now everyone has had sufficient time to watch the premiere of The Bachelor, if you couldn’t catch it live. The first episode of the season is always the best, and sometimes the only one I watch. By “sometimes”, I mean never. If I see the first one I’m committed. The…

french onion soup

Happy New Year, invisible friends! I hope you all had a sloppy evening full of delicious appetizers and cheap champagne. I know I did. What does the new year mean? Well, for starters, I’ll still be dating everything 2012 until at least February which is super annoying. 2013 will be the year that the classiest…

sourdough bread

So as I mentioned previously, there’s a boy.Β I guess he’s an adult, though, so we’ll call him my gentleman suitor. GS for short. Raise your hand if you’ll miss my self-deprecating jokes about being single! Don’t worry, I have other material. Anyway, I’ve also shared with you how I weirdly find grocery stores to be…

whole wheat cinnamon raisin walnut bread

Last weekend was a crazy one of movin’ and shakin’. Emphasis on the movin’, not so much on the shakin’. Molly moved back to Philadelphia for an awesome job, so our friend Meghan moved in! Yay! I helped her move stuff on Friday, and we ended up rearranging our entire first floor. Then I helped…
