Prosciutto Mozzarella and Fig Panini

Not sure if I mentioned this in the past, but I use getpocket.com often. Meaning, I have over 1000 links saved in my account. My goal is to try to go through and trash the links I no longer need, or no longer exist. I came across this prosciutto mozzarella and fig panini recipe from tasting table…

Broiled Salmon with Scallions and Sesame

Woo!  Are you ready for my next installment of, “My Week with Salmon”? I never thought I would spend a week eating salmon, but here I am.  I still have quite a few recipes to get through in epicurious, so let’s get cookin’ with broiled salmon with scallions and sesame! Ok, I should make a…

Pizza at Faccia Luna

The bf and I stumbled onto Faccia Luna while looking for baking supplies next door at Williams Sonoma. I had just received a gift card, and was anxious to use it.  When my bf saw Faccia Luna, his face lit up, and mentioned that he was feeling a bit peckish, even though had we snacked…

Chocolate Whoopie Pies

Occasionally, I like to go back to some of my earlier posts to see if I can improve upon them, or learn something new. It just happens that I was craving chocolate whoopie pies, something I haven’t had, since the last time I made them, which was a few years ago.  I think it’s because…

Sauteed Salmon with Orzo Feta and Red Wine Viniagrette

This sautéed salmon with orzo, feta, and red wine vinaigrette originally called for the recipe to be grilled. I haven’t set up my grill, and I don’t have a grill pan, so I sautéed it. While it was the second sautéed dish in a row, it was also another quick and easy dish to prepare,…

Buttermilk Biscuits with Honey Butter

I have to admit that I’m not very loyal when it comes to biscuit recipes. While I do have a personal preference for buttermilk biscuit recipes, or any recipe that calls for buttermilk, I still lack that “go-to” recipe. This recipe for buttermilk biscuits with honey butter from my epicurious recipe box may change my…

Friday Things

Today’s pic was taken at Rehoboth Beach, MD just a couple of weeks ago.  It was my first and only chance to get to the beach this year.  There was a major storm the weekend the bf and I went, so we left a day early to make sure we’d get a little sun.  We…

Take Out Grilled Chicken: Farmbird

H Street in Northeast DC has been going through a growth spurt. In the past year, tons of new bars have opened, as well as apartment complexes, a Whole Foods, and fast casual eateries such as Farmbird. Farmbird is a grilled chicken spot that sources their menu items locally. And… they raise their chickens on…

Sweet Pretzels

The weekend was quickly approaching, and I was already thinking of what to make for breakfast.  Weekend breakfast for me has become the new Sunday night dinner. At the very least, I like to experiment with different breads and pastries. Ok, so I was really cleaning out my epicurious online recipe box (I’ve saved 300+…

Martha’s Blueberry Muffins

Lately, I’ve been craving my old fav, the blueberry muffin. Specifically, Martha’s blueberry muffins. I made it often when I was a stay at home in Chicago.  It is a cross between a breakfast bread, and dessert. I haven’t made it in a long time, and was feeling a bit rusty. I had every intention…

Friday Things

Today’s pic is of Cedar Grove, a historic home in Fairmount Park Philadelphia, PA.  This was the last kid free weekend for the bf and I, so we went to Philly for a quick overnight trip.  Mostly to eat.  And we did take time to visit the Philadelphia Museum of Art.  If you haven’t been,…
