Fridge Foraging: Springtime Croque Monsieur

The choice was very apparent in today's fridge foraging - it was between cauliflower soup and a springtime croque monsieur and there was an overwhelming response for a croque monsieur. And I don't blame you! How could you not want to have toasty pieces of bread smothered in a cheesy bechamel sauce topped with turkey, asparagus, and peas? It is a total winner of a recipe and super fun to make on the latest episode of fridge foraging

Instant Pot Ramen

A couple years ago I was fortunate enough to go to Japan. I travelled with a couple dear friends and we went to Tokyo, Kyoto, and this little town in the between called Hakone. It was one of the best trips of my life, hands down. Between the people, the sights and the food (most definitely the food) it was an amazing experience.

Fridge Foraging: Sweet Potato Hash with Brussels Sprouts, Sausage and Eggs

So if you haven't seen the news on Instagram....we have moved to Nashville! It was a whirlwind move but we are thrilled to be here. Because of the move, I skipped last week's fridge foraging but am back this week! With the move and just general life craziness, my fridge isn't the most well stocked it has ever been....but that is the point of fridge foraging - to make something out of nothing.

Chocolate Fondue

As I was brainstorming Valentine's Day recipes I was trying to think of the most Valentines/romantic recipes I could think of and in addition to the perfect chocolate souffle, chocolate fondue comes in a very close second! I think it was because we grew up going to the Melting Pot for celebrations but to me a huge chocolate fondue spread just screams Valentines Days. Do you know what else I love about it? Is it super easy to throw together.

Meyer Lemon Bars

I can't seem to get enough of citrus these days. I was always a citrus lover growing up but it intensified a millions times when I got pregnant. All I want to do is eat citrus and drink orange juice. And don't get me started on lemon desserts, I can't pass up any dessert with lemon in it, especially these Meyer Lemon Bars.

One Pot Pasta with Sun Dried Tomatoes and Burrata

With this baby on the way I have started to think more about easy cooking. I have a feeling that - for a little while anyway - the days of leisurely cooking in the kitchen may be over.  I have so many friends who say they don't have time to cook or are too busy with their kids to make dinner. Well this one if for them! It might be one of the easiest one pot pastas out there and it all comes together in less that 20 minutes. 15 if you can get that water boiling faster. So keep a lookout for more one pan wonders and sheet pan suppers, I am super excited to develop and share more of those recipe.

Fresh Pappardelle with Wild Mushrooms

One of my favorite stalls at the farmers market each week is the mushroom stand. It is guaranteed to wow and amaze anyone who passes by. The gentleman who mans the stand always has the usual mushrooms like shiitake or oyster but often times he will have the most gorgeous unusual mushrooms that are so unique looking, they almost look like they don’t belong on this planet! From creamy chanterelles, to lion’s mane, to the fluorescent orange of lobster mushrooms, I love that almost no two mushrooms look alike.

Poached Pears

I think there are two types of people in this world...people who love Costco and people who hate Costco. I fall into the later. The thought of going to Costco gives me serious anxiety. I don't know what it is - I love other stores like Target and Walmart. And Trader Joes and Whole Foods I can do with my eyes closed...but there is just something about Costco.
