Fancy Tea Sandwiches with No-Nut Pesto

A few days ago, Spiro and I were sitting in my living room sipping coffee and we couldn’t stop talking about how delicious it was, and how happy we were with our new coffee/espresso maker. Our friends gifted us the Nespresso Vertuo Bundle (milk frother included) and it has been a gamechanger. The coffee is beyond amazing, …

Tomato Bacon Eggs Benedict with Faux Hollandaise Sauce

Making Eggs Benedict requires a lot of skill and expert timing. Each component should be ready to eat at the exact same time and the hollandaise sauce should be warm and velvety. Making hollandaise sauce is really f*cking hard. I tried, I failed, and I’ll never attempt it again – there is a reason why I only eat it when …

One Pan Cashew Chicken + Roasted Vegetables

During the week dinner should be easy to make and even easier to clean up! I’m all for one pan recipes and Cashew Chicken + Roasted Veggies checks all the boxes. It’s a super low maintenance meal that gives me more time to hang with Zelda after work. Once it is in the oven I don’t have to think about …

Turkey Wonton Tacos

It’s never too early to start thinking about Taco Tuesday! With a spicy kick and a lot of crunch, Turkey Wonton Tacos were an instant hit in my house. Appetizer or main course?  You decide! As of late, I’ve really been into pickling vegetables and the sweet and salty components of the pickled carrots and cucumbers balance the heat from …

Easter Peep Dip

Chocolate Peanut Butter Peep Dip is blowing up on Pinterest! We couldn’t resist putting our own spin on this adorable pastel treat. We filled our Peep Dip with chocolate and white chips, peanut butter and Kix cereal for an extra crunch. Golden Oreos and Animal Crackers are the perfect vessel on which to get the Peep Dip into …

5 New Snacks We’re Crushing On

Raise your hand if you’re a snacker! (You can’t see me right now, but I am raising my hand high.) When it comes to food, snacking is my Achilles heel. I’m always trying new snacks and am constantly on the hunt for ways to snack healthier. It’s National Nutrition Month, which happens to coincide with a time when Zelda and …

Hoppy Easter Mini Carrot Cakes

ATTENTION! We spotted the Easter Bunny and she is all about Mini Carrot Cakes! Okay, well, not really. We spotted our rabbit Shakira but for this recipe she is our official stand in Easter Bunny (see below for cuteness overload). We love “Zelda sizing” our recipes and had to make two-tiered Mini Carrot Cakes. To make sure we didn’t …

Rainbow Swiss Roll Cake

Nothing beats a delicious rainbow cake on St. Patrick’s Day! Zelda and I decided to give ourselves a new challenge by baking our first ever Rainbow Sprinkle Swiss Roll and while there were a few tense moments (it’s quite fragile), we had a ton of fun making it. Our Swiss Roll ended up cracking a bit, but we still think …

A Spicy Green Bloody Mary Recipe

I’m not a huge drinker but do enjoy a spicy margarita from time to time. Since St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner (and because it’s not socially acceptable to drink margaritas in the morning), I created my own version of a Spicy Green Bloody Mary. To help soak up some of the alcohol, I went heavy on the …

St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Meringues

How is it already March?! I feel like I’m still getting used to the idea of 2018, but here I am already making St. Patrick’s Day rainbow meringues. After what feels like a never-ending winter, we are so ready to slide into spring. Zelda and I won’t be in Chicago when the leprechauns come to town because we are heading …
