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...]

Sausage, Apple, and Sage Stuffing

Thanksgiving is just around the corner! And I can’t wait. It’s my favorite holiday by far…you don’t have to stress about getting people gifts, friends and families get to spend quality time together, and then you just eat and eat and eat until you want to pass out and nap. Who could ask for more? One of my favorite Thanksgiving dishes is stuffing. I guess it’s technically called dressing if you don’t cook it inside the turkey…but that sounds like salad dressing and it’s confusing, right? So let’s stick to calling it “stuffing” even though it’s baked in a casserole dish. This stuffing is sourdough heaven. It has a slight apple tang, a hearty flavor from the sausage, and then a heavy  drizzle of browned butter and fried sage. Can we talk about combining browned butter and sage for a minute? It produces the most amazing aroma ever. If you’ve [Continue Reading...]

Shrimp and Avocado Crostini

Avocados are amazing. Especially when you find one that’s perfectly ripe and beautifully green after you slice it in half. You know that awesome feeling, right? Or is it just me?? It’s like a small, but very fulfilling food win that deserves a pat on the back :) And shrimp? Anything with seafood is delicious in my book. Add a little citrus and spice, and you’ve got yourself an easy, flavorful snack/appetizer! Remember how I’m training for my first half marathon? Well, it’s in less than a month…EEK!…and I’m definitely not prepared. I’m running the race with a few coworkers, my roommate, and two of my friends so although I’m huffing and puffing during each of my runs, I’m really excited to finish a 13.1 mile race! A fellow food blogger friend, Ishita, was also training for a different half (which she just completed–go Ishita!) so we had a lot [Continue Reading...]

Easy Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Lately. I went camping at Big Basin over the weekend. We hiked to some sweet waterfalls. Plane tickets have been bought for South America in June with my best friend! Recommendations for Peru and Educador are encouraged. You can blame my lack of blog presence to New Girl, The Mindy Project, and the SJ Sharks being in the Stanley Cup. (How funny was the lastest episode of New Girl?!) I’ve been craving Safeway sushi for lunch. Like every day of the freaking week. I think I could spend a whole month in Bed Bath & Beyond and STILL be entertained by walking through those isles. They have everything! I think I might be starting to go through my quarter life crisis. Someone give me life advice please. I’ve been baking sweet potatoes like it’s my job. Simple, sweet, and healthy. These basic sweet potato fries will be a great accommodation to any [Continue Reading...]
