• THE “KITCHEN SINK” BREAKFAST SANDWICH

    I have a confession to make: I have a weird relationship with egg yolks. When I’m at a diner, I prefer to order egg whites or scrambled eggs; there’s just something about a runny yolk that grosses me out… …until now. I know that plopping a fried egg on a sandwich or burger isn’t a hip, new thing. People have been doing it since they realized chickens shit eggs (I know they don’t actually SHIT eggs. Calm down). While I typically stick to egg whites for breakfast, I felt like switching things up a bit and grabbing an actual egg. I know. I’m an adrenaline junkie. Now, while I opted to go…

  • THE EASIEST CHICKEN CHILI EVER

    I don’t praise the heavens a lot…. ….but when I do, it’s usually some variation of, “Thank GOD for slow cookers!” While I may suck at cooking, I don’t suck at preparing and my trusty slow cooker allows me to do just that with this chili recipe. It’s become a staple in our household and I owe it all to Ali over at Gimme Some Oven. The first time I tried this recipe, I think my exact response was, “Hot damn. That’s good.” Aside from the simple fact that it tastes incredible, you only need five ingredients to put it all together! Cheap, tasty, and easy? SOLD. You’ll find Ali’s recipe below. A few…

  • CUCUMBER, ONION, & TOMATO DILL SALAD

    I had a great, relaxing weekend filled with an awesome concert (The Avett Brothers), awesome dessert, awesome tacos, awesome drinks, and awesome company. I guess you could say the past few days have been…awesome? LOOK AT THAT DESSERT Fast-forward to right now and if you’re like me, you completely forgot that tomorrow is Memorial Day. Nothing screams ‘Merica like a good ole-fashioned BBQ. While I absolutely adore pasta salad, potato salad, and baked beans, my stomach does not. With that being said, I hate always having to forego these delicious side dishes and munch on lettuce while everyone else is having a ball. My solution? If I have to munch…

  • FOUR-INGREDIENT BBQ CHICKEN MEAL PREP

    If I’ve been taken by pirates and the only way they’ll release me is if you give the correct answer to the question, “Aside from her husband and cats, what has Brittany’s heart?” know that the answer is food. Food is delicious. Food is nutritious. Food is life. Literally. Try living without it. When my better half and I started dating, my cooking skills were…meh. Actually, my shitty cooking skills can be traced back to lonnnng before I met the father to my three furry demons/angels (I’m talking about cats here. I don’t have a bunch of incredibly hairy children running around). I’m Italian; like, ‘great-grandfather came over here with…

  • SHEET MEALS: SHRIMP FAJITAS

    GUYS! This meal was in-cred-i-ble. Pardon my language, but holy SHIT. I’m not going to spend too much time rambling on this one because you just need to get your ass into the kitchen and MAKE THESE FAJITAS RIGHT NOW. This recipe comes from the amazing No. 2 Pencil. I’m convinced she’s a food magician because this recipe was so easy, so delicious, and so healthy. Sidenote: I’ve never used the “broil” setting on my oven before. “How was your weekend, Brittany?” “Well, I finally broiled something, so it was pretty fantastic!” We’re diving right in here. Here’s the recipe, courtesy of No. 2 Pencil (can we take a second to praise her awesome food…
