Homemade French Onion Dip

The Super Bowl is coming up! I’d be lying you to if I said I was really into football (and we don’t lie to each other on this blog) but I AM super pumped for all of the food that I’ll get to munch on during the game. This year, I don’t think there will be a snackadium involved, but I’m ok with just eating this dip. I’d really just like to face-plant into this french onion dip. Over and over again. There’s something wonderful about caramelized onions, and it makes me want to find caramelized onion scented candles so I can continuously smell the aroma. Making caramelized onions also lets me practice patience. The longer you wait, the more delicious they will taste. And it’s worth it! This french onion dip (adapted from Iowa Girl Eats) is made with Greek yogurt and cream cheese, instead of mayonnaise and sour [Continue Reading...]

I was excited to get the opportunity to work with Kraft and create a recipe using their cheeses. I’m always overly eager to consume any and all types of cheese so this project was perfect. I decided to make this tart because I love the combination of flavors and texture. It’s creamy, sweet, and slightly salty with a flaky crust. The trick to this dish is to get your onions fully caramelized and then to add tons of cheese! It makes a great appetizer for a party, a delicious snack, or a fun addition to a weeknight dinner. All you need is a sheet of puff pastry, some olive oil, red pepper flakes, a sheet of puff pastry, onions (plus some butter), arugula, and 3 types of cheese: mozzarella, goat, and parmesan. I recommend making this recipe in 2 parts: 1) Caramelize the onions the night before and then 2) Assemble and bake the tart [Continue Reading...]

Sriracha Mac and Cheese

Mac and cheese is quite possibly one of my favorite comfort foods. And hot sauce? Hot sauce is my best friend. This sriracha mac and cheese has it all. For many of you, autumn has arrived and pumpkin spice everything is everywhere. Leaves are probably turning all of those pretty fall colors. But in San Francisco? It’s summertime! For about 2-3 months out of the year, we get some warmth and sun in this foggy city. And even though I’m soaking it up while it lasts, I’m starting to crave those cold weather comfort foods. Ergo, sriracha mac and cheese. Sriracha is added into the cheesy béchamel sauce and then extra hot suace is also drizzled on top right before serving. Spicy perfection! I got this idea from my friend Cassie who is awesome at whipping up great meals. She invited a huge group of us over and made multiple [Continue Reading...]

Spicy Buffalo Chicken and Quinoa Wrap

So yeah…I’ve officially decided that I am most definitely going through my quarter life crisis right now. What’s my passion? What do I want to do in the next 10 years? Do I want to stay on this career path or should I choose something totally different? I don’t have answers to any of those questions. Which is kind of scary but it sort of feels like a blank canvas. And I like that… (…I think???) It feels like I’ve had too many I’m-almost-25-what-have-I-done-with-my-life-I’m-not-where-I’d-thought-I’d-be-but-that’s-ok-right?-RIGHT? moments lately. But I’ve always found that getting in the kitchen, putting on some music, and cooking/baking helps. There’s something about cooking that soothes me. I don’t know if it’s following a recipe so that I don’t have to decide what to do or if tasting whatever I make is enough at the time. I have a feeling I’ll be in the kitchen A LOT MORE [Continue Reading...]

Quinoa, Black Bean, and Corn Stuffed Jalapenos

I have a strange obsession with jalapeno poppers. They’re just so easy to make and great for so many occasions. But sometime they aren’t necessarily the best for you. Cream cheese? Delicious. Bacon? I’ll take 100 please. However, I can’t justify eating regular jalapeno poppers all the time. So I present to you…guilt-free poppers! These jalapenos are stuffed with a combination of quinoa, black beans, and corn and then topped off with some monterey jack cheese. They make a perfect appetizer or snack! I can also imagine eating them with eggs in the morning or as a side dish. The quantity pictured in this post? Yeah, I almost ate all of them by myself. No regrets. Some jalapenos are way hotter than others though so be careful! Make sure you take out all of the seeds and wear gloves while doing so or wash your hands with soap right after. [Continue Reading...]
