My Recipes
Potato, Asiago And Caramelized Onion Galette
Yesterday's Asiago potato and caramelized onion galette was so delicious! It's the buttery, cheesy, carb-laden meal of your fall comfort food dreams and you need it in your life! Now I feel like gallette-ing everything! Up next, bourbon salted caramel apple galette! (I might get carried away, send help!)
Sparkling Pineapple Cucumber Frescas
Sparkling Piña Pepino Frescas! sponsored by @crystalgeysersparkling. I've partnered with them to celebrate their 40th anniversary. Infused with fresh cucumber and pineapple juice and a jalapeño lemongrass simple syrup, this libation is an escapists dream! As a part of their #EssenceOfLife campaign I'm sharing how I take a simple everyday moment and celebrate it by making it special. I try to take time out each week to mix a drink that taste like a vacation I wish I was on, put on some music, grab a book, and leave the rest of the world behind? How do you make the most of of simple moments?
White Wine Roasted Tomatoes
As the editor of the garlic feed for @thefeedfeed I'd be remiss if I didn't partake in #nationalgarlicday !! So I offer up to the garlic gods my white wine roasted tomatoes with 2 bulbs of garlic. Serve with bread and more wine and die of happiness.
Rum Old Fashioned With Mint, Chocolate And Blood Orange
"The course of true love never did run smooth." {Shakespeare} But this @diplomaticorum sure does! I made a rum old fashioned with mint, chocolate, & blood orange. It's not pink or red but you will fall in love with it. Happy Valentine's Day friends!
Cucumber Cure
Look friends! A green drink to start the new year all health-minded and such. This sparkling elixir has cucumber juice (hydrating and flushes out toxins), basil (a good source of vitamin c & k), ginger (good for an upset stomach after last night's antics), and lemongrass (for stomachache, colds, & more). I mean sure there's prosecco and gin in there too, but it's green and garnished with greenery so #HealthyLiving right?
Bucatini With Bourbon Bbq Bacon Meatballs
I am all about decadent comfort food this time of year and what better way to dive into @FarmerJohnLA's #BaconWonderland than with a recipe that is quite simply bacon goals?! I whipped up some BBQ bourbon bacon meatballs using @FarmerJohnLA Steakhouse Seasoned Bacon and ground pork. Adding bacon to the ground pork made for the juiciest most flavorful meatballs I've ever had! You need these in your life friends!
Butternut Squash Bucatini With Bbq Bourbon Meatballs
Here is the finished shot of my indulgent BBQ bourbon bacon meatballs and pasta! I paired creamy butternut squash bucatini with meatballs loaded with @farmerjohnla Steakhouse Seasoned Bacon and ground pork! Flavored with roasted garlic, sage, bbq sauce, and bourbon--these meatballs are the stuff of comfort food dreams!
Pumpkin Mole Pulled Pork Bowls
Here is the finished meal from yesterday: @salsaology Pumpkin Mole pulled pork bowls!!! I made poblano cilantro rice, black beans, and fried some plantains and cotija cheese just like my mom used to!
