Sausage, egg & cheese casserole

What’s better than a sausage, egg & cheese sandwich? Tearing up the pieces of bread, mixing them with eggs and sausage, topping them with cheese and baking it as a casserole. This may not be the most revolutionary recipe but it’s near and dear to my heart because it’s been a Christmas morning staple in…

Ratatouille a la Ratatouille

I very much regret to inform you that I’m not watching Ratatouille as I write this. This is sad because it is, in my opinion, a truly fantastic movie. But I’m thrilled to announce that my favorite blogger, Mizz Smitten Kitchen, has modeled a recipe for ratatouille after the dish from the movie. Goodness, she’s a genius….

Dijon-panko encrusted salmon

My boyfriend and I have been doing Sunday dinners at home. It’s cheaper than going out (in theory) plus it’s kind of a nice tradition.

Pumpkin chai overnight oats

My roommate hates pumpkin so the other night I read her all the items containing America’s favorite gourd in the Trader Joe’s Fearless Flyer. Here are some of my favorites: Cold pressed pumpkin harvest juice (What would this even taste like? Like drinking a Yankee Candle?) Pumpkin cream cheese (Ew) Pumpkin pie mochi ice cream (Let’s take something…
