It’s finally starting to feel like winter in LA, now that it’s cooled down and we’ve had some rain. I couldn’t think of a better meal to eat while bundled up inside than hearty chili. This southwestern chili was full of flavor and unbelievably delicious. It’s even tastier the next day for leftovers!
My roommate and I are hosting a white elephant party tonight and are providing some of the appetizers. I wanted to make something with ground beef, since I had some on hand, so I decided to make a velvety and delicious beef queso dip. I speak from experience when I say that this dip is addicting…I couldn’t stop “taste testing” it last night!
Happy belated Thanksgiving! I spent the holiday at home with my family eating mass amounts of food and drinking copious amounts of wine. We typically celebrate Thanksgiving at a family friend’s home, but since they were out of town this year, we gobbled up the turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes at my house. I made this decadent pumpkin pie for dessert and it was a huge hit. Although time-consuming, the pie was absolutely worth all the effort!
I hope everyone is having a great Thursday! Can you believe Thanksgiving is already next week? Next week! This month has flown by, and since work has been insanely busy, it’s made the time go by even faster. I worked the Hollywood Film Awards last weekend, and am working the American Music Awards this weekend. I can’t wait!
I almost can’t put into words how incredible this sandwich tastes. Its complexity of flavors is ridiculous, from the sweetness of the honey ham to the bite of the Jarlsberg cheese to the savoriness of the pesto aioli. The crispy, tomato basil bread from Panera makes the sandwich even more delicious, if that’s possible.
I’ve been in a game day cooking mood as of late, and I can’t say there’s anything wrong with that! These buffalo chicken nachos are di-vine, and I guarantee your friends will give you lots and lots of hugs if you make these for them. The buffalo ranch sauce drizzled on top takes these nachos to the next level!
I’m always looking for delicious game day snacks to make on Saturday and Sunday. I came across these tater tot cups on Thrillist, and had to make them. These little guys were amazing! If you’re feeling crazy, dip them in some homemade ranch, as well. You’re welcome. :-)
I’m finally back in the kitchen! Although I’m still healing from my gum procedure last week, I’m thankfully able to eat soft, solid foods. Of course, I missed eating Mexican food, so I made these deliciously cheesy enchiladas. This recipe is very similar to these enchiladas, but I switched it up a bit and added corn, beans and avocado. Yum!
Hi everyone! I’m sorry I’ve been MIA–I was on vacation in Chicago last weekend, and got yet another gum surgery this week (let’s hope third time’s a charm!) I haven’t been in the kitchen much after the procedure, but was able to whip up these simple, savory mashed sweet potatoes, and they were delicious! These would be a great addition to your Thanksgiving dinner spread. :-)
I couldn’t think of a better way to welcome fall than with these luscious hard cider cupcakes. Although it doesn’t feel like fall in LA yet (it’s still in the high 80s), that doesn’t mean I can’t start cooking with fall ingredients! I can hardly wait to cook with pumpkin. :-)
