Weeknight Chili 🌶

I call this weeknight chili because it is super quick and easy and perfect for a busy weeknight meal. But this would be a perfect comfort meal on a Sunday night as well.

Summer Boil

Summer nights with no school in sight and a big pot of shrimp and sausage is just what we need.  This is a true one pot meal that is spicy and delicious!

Mita’s Avocado 🥑 Salsa

The other day I was minding my business when I got a text from Mita with her recipe for her Avocado 🥑 Salsa scribbled on paper along with a pic. I wonder what other recipes she is keeping from me…

Pumpkin Muffins

I regularly make Whole Wheat Banana Muffins. They are healthy and delicious. We eat them for breakfast and can easily pack them in the lunchbox for school. But when the season of fall arrives I like to switch them up a bit and make Whole Wheat Pumpkin Muffins. We all love them just as much as the banana muffins and it gives us all the feelings of fall.

Apple Cake🍎

Apple Cake🍎
I have been waiting to get my hands on my mom’s old cookbook. It was in storage for a couple of years while they got settled here in Florida. Now that I have it, I may not give it back.

Escarole and Beans

Escarole and Beans is one of those meals I grew up on. My mom always made this. It is simple, healthy and delicious. It can be served as a soup or tossed with pasta, which is how we like it. One of the reasons I love pasta is that it can be paired with so many things. All you need is a little pasta and you’ve got Sunday dinner…

Kid-Friendly Breakfast Options

The school year is definitely going to be different this year. Are they going or not? Online? Who knows! I think I have one going and one online. But with that being said I’m going to need to have some healthy breakfast options available.

Aunt Esther’s Potato 🥔 Pancakes

Aunt Esther and Uncle Joe lived in this cozy two family house in Brooklyn. Before we even got to the door we would smell the potato pancakes cooking. I love taking a traditional family recipe and giving it a modern twist. These gluten free potato pancakes did not disappoint!

Summer Salad

Our watermelon is perfect right about now! This is a summer salad that my sister Ali makes. It tastes light and refreshing just like summer…
