Rosemary & Thyme Mashed Potatoes

My sister used to love mashed potatoes…and I mean LOVED them. Every night for dinner growing up she would ask for mashed potatoes with a huge side of gravy. My mom only gave in about once a week, but I was happy because who doesn’t love mashed potatoes? Gravy is great too, but the best mashed potatoes are the ones that can go stark naked and still be amazing all on their own. Kind of like these ones. Okay, exactly like these ones. (more…)


Shepherd’s Pie

Savory Bread Pudding

Wait, what? I know, that’s what I said when I first came across a recipe for savory bread pudding.

Chicken Parmesan

I hardly ever buy fresh basil because I can never seem to use it all up before at least half of it goes bad and no one likes moldy basil sitting on their kitchen counter. I even had a basil plant at one point and thought, “hmm, maybe this will solve my basil problem!” However, I just ended up killing the plant instead. I also killed my succulent, but that’s another story. (more…)
