Pumpkin Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

I Put a Spell on You Alright, so If you’re doing Halloween remotely right, there are very good odds you have already, or will be carving up a pumpkin very soon. And when you’re in there, getting elbow deep in pumpkin guts, you may or may not know about the treasure hidden inside these orange globes of fall goodness. So allow me to shed some light. It was 2 whole years ago (yikes) when we …

The Wife’s Sunday Dinners – Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Dark Horse I hope you guys are ready because this is a post yeeeeeears in the making. Ever since I started the blog I’ve been trying my hardest to get permission to do this recipe. And after countless hours of drilling and persuading, I finally got the rights from the creator to go for it. Yes, my wife is finally letting me post her Baked Macaroni and Cheese recipe! What?! What do you mean what’s …

Oatmeal Cinnamon Chip Cookies

Conquistador So I started thinking, and I couldn’t remember the last time I made cookies. I remember strawberry, nutella & balsamic reduction empanadas, and an obscene amount of key lime brownies. But not cookies. With being out of the cookie game for so long (yes there’s a cookie game, and I didn’t choose it, it chose me), I wondered if I still had it in me. Then, more importantly, I wondered if I even had anything to bake …

Mango Salsa

Summer! …Summer is here, right? It better be because it’s pretty hot out there. It could be just as hot here as it is in Florida but I wouldn’t complain. I’d be able to find solace in the fact that the heat will only last a few short months rather than 10 straight months with a cool breeze the other 2. And speaking of a few short months… I just wanted to make everyone aware …

Key Lime Brownies

Boom There are no words that can truly express the pure and utter joy I currently have. Not because we won the lotto or anything trivial like that. But because I can finally post these brownies.Let me tell you the story that led to this glorious moment. It all started when I was trying to think of something to do for my friends at Wilton. It had been a while since I posted for the …

Modern Blueberry Tarts

Oh, plans. I’m not very good with planning. See, the original plan was to celebrate the 4th season of Game of Thrones by posting a recipe from the official food blog, Inn at the Crossroads, every week during the season’s duration. I even went as far as getting permission and a thumbs up from the awesome Chelsea M-C, the co-author of the blog; and the official cookbook, might I add. The plan was ballsy for …

Strawberry, Nutella & Balsamic Reduction Empanadas

Counting Stars Look!! Food!!! It’s been a while, let me see if I remember how to do this.. I know it’s been a long time, but if you recall, I was/am on a diet. Weight Watchers to be exact. While I’m already a chiseled hunk of man, I could still benefit from losing a few. Between starting it around March and today, I’ve lost 20 pounds! I’d say that’s alright considering I haven’t included any …

Bread and Salt & The Sacred Law of Hospitality

The Rains of Castamere ‘String Quartet’ Happy Game of Thrones Day Week! I know, I know.. I’m a few days late and I missed all the premier viewing parties, but season 4 just started! You have 9 more weeks to make this and share it with guests! If you’re not sure what I’m talking about and you don’t watch Game of Thrones, season 4 premiered last night and there is plenty cause for celebration! If you …

Apple Pie Scones

I really didn’t want to be that guy who does nothing but constantly remind you how fast time is going, but seriously, we’re almost done with October and it’s absolutely insane. I mean, it’s great, don’t get me wrong. Being able to open your windows and have a crisp autumn breeze run through your house is an pleasure I look forward to through all of summer. Leaves falling, the colors, the smells, The Nightmare Before …
