vegetarian gravy

Vegetarian gravy. It’s not just for the vegetarians, I promise. I love being able to have gravy without the hassle of cooking meat. Let’s be honest, most of us wouldn’t turn down gravy in any form, especially with potatoes (and spooned over everything else on our dinner plate, because #Merica).

pasta with roasted red pepper cream sauce

Someone please tell me if I’m missing out, but most years Patrick and I do not go out to dinner on Valentine’s day. We generally find ourselves at home or hanging out with friends.

baked brie with apples, cranberries, and spiced pecans

I’ll round off 2019 with a final recipe for you. And no, it’s not a a banana duct taped to a wall; though I’d be happy to duct tape this baked brie to your wall for a discounted price of 100k. But I digress. I used to think baked brie was something only middle-aged women […]
