Cupid’s Crush

Valentines Day is just around the corner- what are your plans?! Honestly, I love to just stay in! Most restaurants are too crowded, and I have a hard time with the set menu most places have. What can I say-I like options and to not be limited! Plus, I love lounging in sweats and that…

Let Them Eat Potato Wedges!

So this recipe was shared with me from one of my assistants (Thanks Sarah !) We share an obsession for all things potato and this recipe is everything! It’s baked, it’s cheesy, it’s finger food, it’s a must have appetizer for watching the Super Bowl or binge watching the next new Netflix documentary! The recipe…

Baked Mac and Cheese Bites

The best snacks for game day are bite sized and accompanied by a tasty dip and these baked Mac and Cheese bites are just that! These little pockets of cheese are perfectly crispy on the outside and ooey gooey on the inside. Once you start snacking you might not be able to stop! Using a…

Hot Baked Veggie and Bacon Dip

There is nothing better than a hot baked appetizer for a party or cozy night in, if you ask me.  I love big meals, but I’m also really happy with a couple shared apps as my meal.   This hot baked spinach/kale and bacon dip is unbelievable. The original recipe called for only kale but…

Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

Enchiladas are one of my all time favorite meals.  They are so insanely easy to make and can have so many variations. Enchiladas originated in Mexico where the practice of rolling tortillas around other foods dates back to Mayan times.  Now, I like to make recipes by scratch as much as possible but ain’t no…

Taco Salads are Everything

It’s Tuesday-you know what that means! TACOOOOOOOOOOS!  I love Taco Tuesday especially with a bountiful salad.  All your favorite taco toppings on plate-what’s not to love. Fresh guacamole, blue corn chips, a ice cold brewski …it’s the makings of a perfect evening. There’s not much to this taco salad and to be honest, no one…

The Best CrockPot Chili

The title isn’t an exaggeration. This crockpot chili is THE BEST.  This weekend we were hit pretty hard with snow in Chicago and temperatures plummeted..hard! It also happens to be my birthday weekend ((Jan 19th)) and nothing says cold-winter-snow-day like a big pot of your favorite chili.  As a January baby, I’ve always expected a…
