Growing up, I was raised in NJ, but most of our extended family was from the Pittsburgh area. Every 4th of July we would go back to visit, when the 4th of July festival was going on. This festival was a crafter’s dream, but it also had and still has delicious food. Meatball sandwiches and …

We’ve been frying up a lot of things in this household lately. I don’t care what anyone says, when it comes to wings and eggrolls, fried is the way to go. I’m sure most of you have had the combination of jalapeno and cream cheese is some way. It’s a great combination! The coolness of …

Every once in a while, we just crave a large bowl of pasta. It’s a great meal if you are planning on doing a long run the next day, and it holds a ton of nutrients you need to energize your body. Even though a good tomato sauce sounds great on pasta, it’s not the …

Here we go with burgers again! While my sister and dad were still in town, we HAD to make burgers especially with buffalo, since it’s so much easier for us to get out here in the West. This recipe did not disappoint and is one of our best burger recipes yet! We took your average …

We really decided to go with a burger theme this week, didn’t we!? Turkey Burgers earlier this week, then chicken burgers last night! This recipe was a total experiment. We had no idea how these were going to turn out. We actually tried to grind the chicken thigh ourselves – that didn’t work out so …

I was craving wings, like your traditional buffalo wing, but we didn’t want to go through the hassle of frying them up. I also wanted to eat something somewhat on the healthy side, and wings would be going a bit overboard. I’ve seen many recipes for a buffalo chicken taco, but never really took any …

Zach and I have delved into making many different kinds of burgers, but we had yet to tackle the turkey burger; until now. Turkey burgers can be very tricky. 90% of the time they are too dry, and I feel like there is never enough flavor. I think I have maybe had one good turkey …

We recently purchased a blender (finally) and so making vinaigrettes has become a hobby of ours. However, vinaigrettes do not have to just be used to top salads. They actually make very good marinades. So, instead of just topping our pizza with boring old grilled chicken, we marinate the chicken breasts in a wonderful basil …
