Remember when you were a kid and summer lasted forever. You could spend all day every day laying in the sun, running around in the grass and the worry of returning to busy school days never even bothered you. Now that I’m an adult and don’t get summers off, it seems to fly by. Food bloggers everywhere are bursting with fall flavors, hearty soups, and comforting meals getting ready for cold weather to sink in. And I am just as guilty as the rest, prepping some new posts and recipes for the site and some other add on holiday bonuses […]

Leftovers? Eat like a pilgrim, Pilgrim Sandwich

The best part about Thanksgiving? The leftovers, duh! For as long as I can remember, a local sub shop has offered a sandwich all year round that is a carb-oholic’s dream come true. The sandwich starts with a beautiful thick hoagie roll overflowing with stuffing, turkey, cranberries and a slather of mayo. It’s the kind of sandwich that requires a long nap or a marathon immediately afterwards.  It’s the kind of sandwich I only allow myself to order maybe once a year. It’s the kind of sandwich that give’s angels wings. Oh yeah, it’s that good. So, you can imagine […]

Ever feel like you really need a lunch break? Chances are, you should probably take one. Back before I had my dream job, I know we would hit the ground running on our lunch break as a chance to get the stress of the day out of our system and to laugh of the worries of the day. A break in the day to sit and enjoy lunch is one of those simple pleasures that really goes a long way – and I’m not alone in this article Chow lists 5 reasons to take a break for lunch. Now that I […]

Go big or go home: “Manwich” – Grilled Mac & Cheese with Pulled Pork

#Manfoodweek and the last of my Father’s Day menu for the week is one of those go big or go home type of meals. It can be summed up in two words “fat kid-tacular” as stated and copyrighted by my boyfriend who when asked to help choose the pictures stated, “It doesn’t matter. They are all amazing.” For those of you who don’t know him, that says a lot – because he never ever tells me when he likes or dislikes a meal. Ever. Sometimes my mind wanders, especially when there is leftover mac and cheese in the fridge. My […]

Curried Turkey Pot Pie

Even though we had several people join in our Thanksgiving feast, it just wouldn’t be the same without leftovers. And despite everyone’s best efforts, there were plenty of leftovers. My parents sent us home with a giant plate of turkey, an entire pie and the trimmings. But, as much as I love a simple turkey sandwich on white bread, this much turkey needed to be used up before it went bad. I had seen a show the other day where the chef made a curried chicken pot pie and new that’s what I would be doing with my Thanksgiving day […]

Pork and Rice Quesadillas

Let’s talk politics. Ok, I don’t really have a great debate prepared here, really, I am a little disappointed in something. I went and applied for college the other day (yes, that’s long over due) and found out I could not get accepted into the program I would like without a health care plan. At last loose google check, approximately 40% of Americans don’t have health coverage. I am a young, healthy person. I work at a small shop that can not afford to offer health care for their employees, it would simply cost the business too much (there are […]
