Scones Over Steelers

After being sick for the last week , I’m finally back at whipping some things up. This morning I made some blueberry scones for breakfast. This recipe is so delicious, and always comes out perfectly. Making any dough from scratch can be intimidating at times, but this one always seems to come together for me. I like to use other fruits in this recipe too. You can sub in cranberry, orange, etc. Next time I want to make a savory kind (probably with ham and cheese 🙂 ). The Steelers may have disappointed today, but these scones sure didn’t. Until next time…have a great week everyone!

I Need To Go To The Grocery Store…

As I sit here on this lovely cold morning sipping coffee, I’m realizing I need to hit the grocery store. The leftovers from the holidays are starting to disappear (thankfully) and of course with the start of the New Year, we need to start eating some healthier foods. But before I start on that journey (for the hundredth time) I decided to whip up a dish last night that used some of the leftovers , but in a simple way. Everyone has heard of the dish Chicken Cordon Bleu…sort of time consuming , stuffing or rolling and breading then frying and finishing it the oven, blah blah blah. Well I found this awesome recipe that was minimal work and everything (main dish and sides) were all done in 20 minutes. The point of this recipe was to use up that ham , you know the thing that sits in your fridge for about 3 weeks after the holidays are done. I won’t go into too much detail about what I did, since i’ll be posting the recipe on my recipe page, but this is definitely a must try! I paired it with some easy risotto and green beans (the risotto was unfortunately from a box but it is seriously delicious and so easy when you have a busy day). Without much more to say, since a picture is worth a thousand words, here you have it!

Holiday Season

All of the hard work for the holidays is now complete. We can all take a deep breath and begin 2018. I for one, am excited to get this year going. Other than creating this blog, I’d like to go back to school and get my masters, save up to buy my own house, do a lot more traveling (to Italy!) and simply focus on bettering myself and doing what makes me happy. I like to take this time to reflect on this holiday season and express how extremely grateful I am for my loving family and friends. I wouldn’t be where I am today without their support. This Christmas, I took over the cooking and baking since my mom had reconstructive surgery on her foot. Amongst everything else, I made 9 different cookies. Unfortunately, I don’t have many pictures of the appetizers I made, but I will leave you a picture of the cookies (pizzelles not pictured). What are some of the Christmas cookies you all usually make?cookies

Happy New Year!

Hello Everyone! My name is Jessica , and this is my first blog. With the New Year underway, I figured this was a good time to put this together to share with you all.
