Rustic Pizza with Goat Cheese and Balsamic Reduction

I don’t know about you, but pizza is my weakness. I absolutely love pizza and all of the amazing combinations that it can be. I decided to take inspiration from one of my favorite pizza places for this combination and have fallen head over heels in love with it. I’m calling it a Rustic Pizza …

Watermelon Mint Julep

I wanted to make something fun to post for my birthday and saw that the Kentucky Derby is this weekend! I figured trying this Watermelon Mint Julep would be the perfect way to celebrate 25 years. Still stumbling over that whole quarter century thing, but it’ll totally be okay… right? Anyways..

BLT with Cayenne Candied Bacon & Avocado Mayo

You guys. I have a new favorite sandwich and it’s name is the BLT with Cayenne Candied Bacon with Avocado Mayo. I bet you couldn’t have guessed that with the title of the post. But seriously, let me say that again…. Cayenne candied bacon. It’s sweet and spicy and savory and just a punch of …

Creamy Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes are probably my favorite side dish to ever exist. When I was a kid, I would impatiently asked my mom, “What’s for dinner?” the second I walked in the door from school.
