Comfort Food, Sweet Cornbread

Everyone has their comfort foods, and most of mine I’ve realized quite recently are made from corn. It’s the unique combination of being both from the South, and growing up as an Italian-American that really cements it. From the italian side you’ve got 1000’s way to make polenta and delicious summery grilled corn. The southernContinue reading “Comfort Food, Sweet Cornbread”

Simple & Quick Homemade Bread

I’m honestly not the best baker. I’m one that excels at things more friendly to the “winging it” life approach. Since baking is a science, it doesn’t always work out when you are a culinary free spirit so to speak. My sister, a literal rocket scientist at NASA is a great baker.

I started with this recipe I found on Iowa Girl Eats via Pinterest. It’s aContinue reading “Pinned! : Chicken Power Bowls”

Buffalo Chicken Pasta Bake

Sometimes you want baked pasta, but you also want buffalo wings. And as great as those both sound to binge eat on the couch while watching adventure time, it’s not always for the best. So I used my google kung-fu to search for a happy combination of the two. May I present Buffalo Chicken PastaContinue reading “Buffalo Chicken Pasta Bake”

Paleo Pineapple Popsicles!

It’s come to my attention recently that I needed a Popsicle mold ever since I saw Meg’s delicious looking moscato pops. For all the dumb kitchen gadgets I have and never use, a Popsicle mold wasn’t one of them. To my great fortune Joann’s had quite the selection in there summer clearance yesterday. I picked upContinue reading “Paleo Pineapple Popsicles!”
