• Classic Roast Chicken

    October 14, 2019

    For some reason, I was always intimidated by roast chicken. It looked like it took a ton of time to make and I always worried it would turn out dry. A few years ago, I cooked a turkey for the first time for Friendsgiving (see recipe here). It was SO much easier than I thought…

  • Bacon Wrapped Filet

    February 12, 2019

    The only thing better than filet mignon is filet mignon wrapped in bacon! My Husband does the grilling in our household. I’m usually the one marinating the steaks and then he takes them outside to grill on the BBQ. With all the rain we’ve been having recently in LA, grilling isn’t really an option for…

  • Steak with Red Pepper Pesto

    January 22, 2019

    For the past few years, my husband and I do Whole30 for the month of January. Whole30 is basically a way to reset your body by eating whole foods for 30 days. That’s why we like to do it after the indulgent holiday season. You basically eliminate sugar, alcohol, grains, legumes, soy, and dairy from…

  • White Bean Chicken Chili

    January 14, 2019

    Cold, rainy nights sitting by the fireplace with a hot bowl of soup are my absolute favorite. Soups and stews are just so comforting and make the house smell amazing and homey. They can sometimes take a long time to make in order to develop great flavor. What I love about this recipe is how fast…

  • Spaghetti Squash Alla Carbonara

    January 4, 2019

    As you probably know by now, I’m Italian and I LOVE pasta! Carbonara is one of my favorite sauces. I make it all the time because the main ingredients are pasta, bacon and eggs, all of which I always have on hand. A few years ago, I started making carbonara a little differently. Instead of…

    November 26, 2018

    This is one of my favorite hearty recipes! I make it all the time during the colder months of the year because to me, it’s the perfect comfort food. These ribs are so delicious, tender and rich in flavor. I love to serve them with Pappardelle Carbonara or some Creamy Polenta. And as a side…

    My parents always host our Family’s Thanksgiving. The guest list ranges anywhere from 30 to 50 people, depending on the year. I always help my Mom with the cooking. I absolutely love it. We have so much fun together in the kitchen. We start a couple days early and are usually fueled by some holiday…

  • Cilantro Lime Chicken Salad

    August 13, 2018

    This is the perfect summer salad. You can serve it as a side dish, but I prefer it as a main. It’s so light yet super filling. This is my version of the Nordstrom Cilantro Lime Chicken Salad. The dressing is one of my absolute favs. It’s slightly spicy from the chipotle peppers, with a…

  • Salmon with Mango and Avocado Salsa

    August 9, 2018

    This dish is so light, flavorful and perfect for summer! When it’s as hot outside as it has been lately, the last thing I want to do is cook over a hot stove. This recipe is so easy and the only “cooking” you have to do is put the salmon in the oven. I’ve been…

  • French Baguette Sandwiches

    August 6, 2018

    This recipe was inspired by a trip that my Husband and I took to France in June for our Anniversary. The trip was filled with so much AMAZING food, but I think some of our favorites were the sandwiches. We ate baguette sandwiches pretty much every day of our trip. Bread literally just tastes better…
