Tuna Casserole

It’s casserole. Which means this is not a fancy, crowd-awing dish. However, it’s yummy, filling, fairly healthy, cheap, and you can make enough for leftovers or a big group. Sometimes that is just what you need! It’s my momma’s recipe. Ingredients -2 cans of white tuna in water (8 0z total I think) -1.5 cups…

Crock-Pot Chicken Chili

It’s cold. It’s dark. And I don’t want to do anything when I get home from work besides put on my pjs and enjoy some Parks & Recreation and chips and salsa (Stacy’s Hint of Salt Chips and Green Mountain Gringo…mmmm). Is that too much to ask?

French Onion Soup

The first time I ever had French onion soup I was at my teacher Mrs. Mahoney’s house for a French Club holiday party – Yankee swap style. I was one of the only freshman there and felt really awkward. Would people want the gift I brought? Who can I talk to? What jerk stepped in dog poop…

Ave’s Eggplant Parmesan

Growing up what did your family have for Christmas dinner? Turkey? Perhaps a ham? Or maybe even roast lamb? We always had eggplant parmesan. Why? Because it’s delicious. And we’re Italian. duh.

I was nervous it wouldn’t taste all that great or be filling since the whole dish is vegetables (no offense to vegetables), but my reaction was similar to this food critic:…

Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed peppers are the ONE recipe I have ever made that came out AWFUL (Dan can attest to that). I made them back at our old apartment and they were just completely flavorless and gross. I think we threw them out and ordered Albanese pizza. Fail. However, my mom made great stuffed peppers for me…

Pulled Pork Sandwich

I told you I was going to use my Crock-Pot again this weekend and I delivered. No Memorial Day would be complete without great food. The hub and I went to a fun barbecue on Sunday at our friends Tom and Erica’s new pad in DUMBO, but one day of good eats is not enough…

Mother of All Burgers

Don’t get  me wrong. I’m an all-American girl. I love my mama, and America too. I’m crazy about Elvis. And I like me a good burger sometimes, but…. I’m not crazy about burgers. I don’t crave them on a grill the way I might crave a hot dog or shish kabob. I’ve only had two…
