Sticky Honey Garlic Oven Baked Spare Ribs

Barbecue season is upon us y’all and it’s time to elevate outdoor and indoor grilling with some summer favorites. As a Southern girl, ribs have been a barbecue staple in my family for decades. There’s something about that slow roasting and basting of decadent spare ribs with sauce and allowing them to gently cook on […]

Chicken & Steak Skewer Recipe for Indoor or Outdoor Grilling

Are you cringing at the thought of summer ending? Of missed opportunities to spend time outside grilling? We spend ample time in our backyard hosting friends or just sipping prosecco when the weather warms up.  On most summer days, I love to toss a few things on the grill for a quick and easy lunch […]

Made In New York // Comsi Comsa Apple Crisp Sparkling Wine

For once, the label doesn’t lie. I recently got my hands on Comsi Comsa by Sauvage, an apple sparkling wine made in New York.  This apple cider is made with the traditional Champagne technique which is evident upon first sip. I’m very particular about my sparkling wines and champagnes.  They have to be brut or […]

Red Cabbage & Fennel Slaw Salad

I am looking forward to spending quality time with friends and family over bottles of rose weekend despite another bout of snow in the forecast.  We’ve been nutritionally conscious since January by adding lots of fruits and veggies to all of our meals.  I’m definitely ditching the mayonnaise-based and calorie rich coleslaw, a favorite come […]

I have become a cocktail connoisseur since moving to New York almost nine years ago.  The city is teeming with craft cocktail bars that create some of the most exquisite drinks for my taste buds.  In my single days, my girlfriends and I used to Apotheke, Employees Only, Whiskey Tavern and Mulberry Project on Thursday […]

Balsamic Chicken With Roasted Potatoes

We just got back from an amazing Puerto Rico trip that included some fun foodie adventures. Needless to say, we’ve decided to keep things light this week. We kicked off Monday with a meatless roasted beet and sweet potato bowl with an egg on top. I was craving a healthy chicken dish last night but […]

Beer Braised Pulled Pork Shoulder

I started meal planning a lot more this summer, which made my life a lot easier to handle.  Now that I have to cook for two people, I can’t procrastinate and just seamless.  The beau always wants something home cooked instead of brown bagged so I have been cooking a lot more.  One of the […]

How to Make Mint Simple Syrup

My downstairs neighbor brought me a whole bunch of mint leaves last week as a gift because she knows how much I love sun brewed teas.  Anyone ever try sun brewed tea? There is something about allowing tea to sit in the sun to brew for hours instead of using hot water.  You get this […]

Pan-Roasted Chicken Thighs

I don’t know if my Southern roots are to blame but I sure do love fried a good fried chicken.  I’m not talking about KFC, Popeye’s or other fast food fried chicken.  I’m talking homemade, crispy yet juicy chicken fresh off the stove and served with a flaky biscuit and some crisp veggies.  Since cooking […]

Luke’s Lobster Wild Blue Salad Is a Medley for Your Tastebuds

I have vowed to eat healthier by incorporating salads into my daily diet.  For the past two months, T and I have been incorporating salads into the menu when we have dinner or brunch.  There are nights where salad is the main course, which isn’t such a bad thing, considering we eat so much meat.  […]

The Perfect Brunch Cocktail with Villa Massa Limoncello

I love weekend brunch as much as the next gal and in New York City and Brooklyn, brunch options are too much to count. There are those times where I would rather ditch heading to a restaurant and instead get friends over to my apartment for a lavish brunch at home. Brunch at home means […]
