Hearty Ratatouille Sauce

I’ve been cooking and experimenting in the kitchen since I can remember. One of my earliest memories of becoming absolutely obsessed with cooking is the day I fell in love with Rachael Ray after seeing her very first episode of 30 Minute Meals. From then on, I didn’t miss an episode. I remember her making… Continue reading Hearty Ratatouille Sauce

Best of Basic: Basil Pesto Sauce

My recent vacation to my family’s summer cottage in Canada was super inspirational in terms of cooking and food. To no one’s surprise we ate well and often, and had a blast in the kitchen along the way.

Decadent Hello Dolly Dessert Bars

The days after returning from a week long vacation are difficult to say the least. Especially when that week vacation took place in a gorgeous semi-wilderness region of Canada. After 7+ days of seeing nothing but nature (except for the occasional boat passing through), it’s hard to come back to a concrete jungle like New… Continue reading Decadent Hello Dolly Dessert Bars

You can really focus on the food, enjoy a couple drinks without fearing… Continue reading Cheap & Easy: Garlicky Spinach & Feta Pizza
