Fourth of July Cheese Board

If I could compete for the title of Queen of Cheese, I’m pretty sure I’d win. Okay, I know that makes me sound a little full of myself, but I am literally known for my love of cheese. One of my best friends called me Cheddar throughout college because she had never seen anyone eat […]

Whipped Feta

When my husband and I first got married we lived in Chicago and absolutely loved it. We were obsessed and never wanted to leave. And then I got pregnant and our priorities changed. Being closer to family and living in the suburbs made more sense and allowed me to start working part-time. It was really […]

Spicy Sausage Dip

The other day I was reminiscing about college and living in the dorms. I thought about the friends I made my first couple of years, all of the classes I never wanted to study for, and for some reason, my mind jumped all the way to disgusting cafeteria food (most of my trains of thought […]

Spring Cheese Board

Two or three months ago, we went to another couple’s house for light appetizers and desserts. They invited us and another couple over.

Baked Brie with Apples and Pancetta

I am convinced I have cheese in my veins. Not just because I love it, but because it’s been my BFF ever since I started eating. We’ve been through it all, me and cheese – breakups, holidays and fun times with family and friends. I used to snack on cheese with my Yiayia when we’d […]

Game Day Taco Dip

Does anybody else love eating appetizers? Best course by far, right? I most likely feel this way because appetizers (antipasto) are a main staple at every party my extended family hosts. We normally serve a variety, but also feature some of the classics at holidays. One of my favorites is my mom’s taco dip – […]

Ricotta, Walnut and Honey Crostini

When I think New Years Eve, I think appetizers, friends passing bubbly around, music or games, and chocolatey, rich desserts. Naturally, food is the most important component of any gathering (just kidding friends)…. anyone else with me? It’s such a fun holiday! Back in the day, my best friend and I spent a couple of […]
