Broccoli Mac & Cheese

Okay this turned out SO good! I can’t get over how easy this sauce is compared to a roux and how creamy it turns out. The broccoli makes it a one pot kinda meal which is very much my style. It would also be super good with bacon bits or a little ham but hasContinue reading “Broccoli Mac & Cheese”

Easy Garlic Jalapeño Refrigerator Pickles

You guys I made pickles for the first time ever and it was SO easy and SO delicious I have to share!

We named them Hen-Solo, Meg-hen, Henneth Paltrow, Dolly Part-hen, and Hei Hei (seriously so proud of myself). They’ve kinda become my favorite thing! Hei Hei is missing at least half her feathers since she’s at the bottomContinue reading “Easy Spinach, Onion & Cheddar Frittata”

Easy Beef Stroganoff

My dad is from Italy and my mom is from England so there are a lot of things I didn’t eat growing up (like chicken parm, most kinds of casseroles, and pasta dishes like beef stroganoff). It’s been super fun to explore new things so I’m always stoked about what we’re eating! Recipe notes: IfContinue reading “Easy Beef Stroganoff”
