Split Pea Soup

Weeknight meals can sometimes be daunting after a long day at work. I certainly felt that way when we first started cooking 6 years ago and seeing a meal that takes 2 hours to cook! I would find my hand hovering over Doordash or UberEats, begging my husband for takeout because I was just too…

Reverse Seared Butter Basted Ribeye

What is fun about cooking is that sometimes the most delicious meals don't need to be that complex. Our dinner tonight is ribeye steak from Alpine Butcher with butternut squash and asparagus. Now this might not sound like a lot but reverse seared in butter, garlic, and rosemary is transformative! Our steak obsession hasn't changed…

Street Tacos

Tonight we are having some of our favorite tacos, or at least they are my favorite. We actually found this recipe on Pinterest about 2 years ago when we were living in a small apartment. We had always loved food but the prep space was minimal and having something cooked in a slow-cooker made our…

Asian Steak Salad

Spring is all about getting creative with veggies and kickstarting spring cleaning! I am all about using leftovers but also reimagining how to evolve a dish into something different. Yesterday's steak brought back memories of summer but we made way too much, even with guests helping us! When thinking about how to use the steak…

Soy Lemon Garlic Steak and Shrimp

Today I am excited to go back to an old favorite "Soy Lemon Garlic" Steak. It is technically called "Filipino-Style London Broil" which I learned after my husband sent me the recipe. Either way, the flavor is AMAZING. While the recipe says you can either do flank steak, sirloin, or top or bottom round -…

Weeknight Tandoori Chicken

It's another weeknight, long days and looking forward to a delicious meal. We decided to make Tandoori chicken because we had so much yogurt and wanted to try a new recipe. I have only made Indian food a few times and the technique to do it right can sometimes be challenging. This recipe however is…

Smoked Picanha with Chimichurri

It is 50 degrees and sunny in New England. What a great day to grill and enjoy the spring air! More importantly, it is date night which has become a special night in our house and we always try to make something a little more involved to celebrate. Being home quarantining this last year has…

The Best Chicken Caesar Salad

What is it about salad that just doesn't get anyone excited? While you know that vegetables are good for you and you know that eating a salad is healthier than a juicy cheeseburger - generally I don't think there is lots of flavor in most salads. There are a few salads though that have made…
