There are lots of popular recipes that call for the use of breadcrumbs. Simple dishes like breaded chicken cutlets or chicken fingers call for breadcrumbs to add flavor and texture. They are used as a binder in recipes such as meatloaf, meatballs, or crab cakes. Breadcrumbs could be considered a pantry staple in may homes. […]

Did it rain on your 4th of July parade, like it did mine? We had to do a rain date for our bbq. Instead of getting super sad and staring at our grill I put our dutch oven to work. Grab some mussels and some crusty bread to turn that frown upside down! Just as […]

Growing up I remember my mom often making my dad a beet salad. The salad consists of canned beets, beans, red onion, with a red wine vinaigrette. At least that is what it looks like in my memory. The beets have a very earthy flavor, you can almost taste the dirt. Some people love, and […]

As the summer season approaches we fire up the grill and sweep off the deck. Our weekends become filled with cookouts and picnics. Whether you are a guest or a host you will at some point be thinking about what to bring or serve at a bar-b-que. Traditional coleslaw and potato salad are a must. […]

    This recipe came about in honor of “baby brina” being the size of a pineapple. I have this fun app from Ovia Pregnancy that tells me her size in relation to fruits and vegetables. Of course, I love relating my child to food already. I pray everyday that she is not a pick […]

My dad loves his Italian deli’s and has passed that on to me. He does his best to find the best sandwich place (among other things) where ever he travels. When he would come home from a trip he would always have stories about where he ate. A good sandwich goes a long way. It […]

  This recipe is quite possible the quickest dessert you can make. Birch beer granita to me is a fancy way of saying birch beer ice. You are really just pouring it in a pan and freezing it up. Making the vanilla whipped cream fresh definitely adds an extra touch. When the whipped cream melts […]

  Sides at a bar-b-que can be just as exciting as what is on the grill. Pasta salads are bar-b-que staple. I love the traditional mayonnaise based salad but it has been losing popularity. This fig summer squash orzo salad with yuzu vinaigrette is a fresh new take on the ever loved pasta salad. Giving […]

    Memorial Day weekend is upon us again. I start dreaming of summer farmers markets and crab shacks. Brian works out of Boston frequently. One summer we took a drive and went through Portland Maine and Kennebunkport eating anywhere we could. We discovered so many fun places a long the way. You can read […]

Sometimes drinking plain water can be tough for me. Being pregnant I am trying to drink as much as I can.  Often, I am finding myself falling behind because I literally get bored of drinking water. That is where making lemonade came in. This blackberry basil lemonade is refreshing and just so pretty! I make […]
