Barbacoa Shredded Beef Tacos

Hi there, happy Friday! I know it’s been a while since I posted any recipes on here. I’ve been taking the easy way out (aka posting pictures on Instagram and not writing any real recipes down). C’mon, everyone gets lazy sometimes, right? So here I am, trying to be better. Although, this recipe falls under…

Crock Pot Moroccan Lamb Stew

Another day, another post about my love for lamb. I know, I know- I won’t go into detail this time, as I’m sure you know by now, it’s a deep and true love that will last the until the end of time. Instead, I’ll tell you about how this recipe came to be. A few months ago we…

Greek Meatball Gyro

My New England readers- how much are you loving this spring weather!? This past weekend felt like a dream for February. Although it is a bit concerning (hello, global warming), I can’t help but hope this warm weather is here to stay! Even though we’ve had a mild winter here in Boston (knock on wood),…

Homemade Tzatziki Lamb Burgers

When you go out to dinner, is there a certain item or dish that you can never pass up? Maybe it’s a baked stuffed lobster, spaghetti and meatballs, or a shrimp Caesar salad. Or maybe you’re like me, and it’s a big, juicy lamb burger. I have to start by saying I am a huge burger…

Quick and Easy One-Pot Roasted Red Pepper and Sausage Pasta

Okay here’s my dilemma: once it hits Thanksgiving and the weather starts to take a turn for the worse, my life at work starts to pick up and I feel very little motivation to make elaborate, beautiful meals when I get home. Don’t get me wrong, I love making a purty lookin’ plate, but sometimes you…

Easy Mediterranean Roasted Chicken and Veggies

Every now and then I get a big craving for a roasted chicken. There’s just something about it that tastes comforting and warm. Boston has been on the down cycle in terms of weather this week, so all I’ve wanted to eat are things that keep me warm (insert images of mac and cheese and…

Turkey Chorizo Game Day Chili

It’s that time of year again- where we are forced to trade our flip flops for boots, summer dresses for leggings, and Big Papi for Tom Brady. Fall marks the start of many things, but if you’re from New England, the best part of fall is the day Tom Brady walks back into your life….

Beef Stroganoff Over Egg Noodles

Ladies and Gents: it has arrived. The cool brisk mornings and even cooler night breeze means that fall has officially poked its cute little head into our Boston forecast. Like most girls, I am a sucker for Fall for many reasons, but mostly for comfy blankets, fresh apple cider and feel-good home cooking. I just love getting…

Bacon Breakfast Bowls (The Triple B)

I have to admit, Davis square hogs most of the attention in Somerville. It’s the biggest, and most popular square in Somerville, with tons of great bars and restaurants. However, some of the smaller squares have great options, too- just look at Ball square for example. Have you ever explored Ball Square’s breakfast options? If you have, you…

Spanakopita Turkey Burgers

This past weekend my sister, Sanna, hosted her first annual “Greekfest”. I think I’ve mentioned before, but if not, my mom is Greek. Visions of “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” are probably popping into your head, but growing up wasn’t like that at all, for us. The only time of the year we could really…

Eggs Benedict with a Lighter Hollandaise

Although I’m not usually one of those people that goes out to brunch every weekend, now and then I crave the rich, satisfying flavors of a good, hearty breakfast (and I sleep late so basically all my breakfasts are brunches). The problem is, going out to a big brunch usually means brunch beverages, brunch calories and brunch money….

“French” Dip Sandwiches

After a bit of a hiatus, I am back! The summer months always seem to get away from me. Between vacation time, holidays and weekends with friends and family down the Cape, I find myself cooking less and eating out more. My cooking routine becomes more of a lets-drink-wine-instead routine, but hey, that’s what summer…
