My wife hates the smell of bacon. It’s kind of weird. She also hates the smell of coffee in the morning, so not really sure we can trust her. Needless to say, she was not a fan of when I made this delicious rosemary Dijon pork loin last Sunday afternoon. Its tasty, herby aroma filled the apartment. […]
I first made homemade pecan butter a couple of years ago when I was diagnosed with a peanut, dairy AND gluten sensitivity. Turns out I wasn’t “sensitive” to any of those foods… and that’s one year of eating I will never get back. I’m not bitter. If there’s one good thing that came out of restricted eating, […]
Pasta with Garlic and Oil is a classic Italian dish – also known as spaghetti aglio e olio. The best part about this recipe is not its a.k.a. status, but its simplicity. You only need three ingredients to get started, and you probably already have all three in your pantry.

Burgers are one of my favorite foods. They’re a better sandwich, and there are many different forms they can take. I made Asian Dijon Turkey Burgers this time around. They are quick to make and are perfect for weeknight dinners. Personally, I am not a huge cilantro fan. I tend to pick up on it’s “soapy” taste. Don’t […]

These Honey Cinnamon Blueberry Pancakes are great for the weekend. You can whip them up in about 20-30 minutes and skip the brunch rush.
