Andouille Pigs in a Blanket with Chutney Mustard Dipping Sauce

  You know the “This Little Piggy” nursery rhyme, don’t you?  Of course you do.  You’re saying it to yourself right now … Well, these little piggies waited to mature into sophisticated, tasty pigs before they went to the market.  That said, they still love the simple pleasure of cuddling into a blanket.

Crispy Asian Brussels Sprouts

  I get it. Telling you “Asian roasted Brussels sprouts are the perfect bar food snack” makes me sound like a food snob.  But if you’re reading this, you’re either already a food snob, or you’re on the road to becoming one.  So let’s embrace both our inner food snobbery, and this fantastically delicious and […]

Maple Almond Granola

Baked Zucchini “Zuk” Fries with Greek Yogurt & Sriracha Dipping Sauce

  I took a trip to my local farmers market and somehow came home with 3 large bags of zucchini. Can you blame me when they were charging $2.00 for 10 zucchini?  $6.00 later, I had A LOT of zucchini. Time to get creative with an abundance of one product. “Zuk” (I like to abbreviate) […]
