Buffalo Chicken Tenders

Hello again!! If any of you know anything about blogging…it can be tiresome and uninspiring at times.

Chicken Cacciatore

WARNING: EASY SLOW COOKER, FULL FLAVOR (NOT MUSHY) RECIPE BELOW!! As a child, I grew up loving my grandfather’s chicken caccciatore.

Soft-Baked Almond Flour Cookies

Summer days are for loosing track of the time and not really knowing what day of the week it is. I was just telling my husband the other day how I feel like I’m in a bubble this summer and it’s quite incredible. Mommy-hood is nothing like I expected it to be and I feel…

Seared Scallops and Risotto

I’ve fallen IN LOVE with risotto. I don’t know if its the richness of the rice or the high flavor, but I’m completely won over and can’t get enough. Many risottos I’ve tried contain heavy cream and cheese, which can be a bit much. I have perfected this recipe that is just as delicious without…

Crepes

Having a week off of grad school, work, and everything else I put on hold for Christmas vacation means more time for breakfast! These crepes were incredible and I cannot wait to make them again! If you are as big of a crepe fan as I am, you know that these basic crepes can be…
