My recipe for Honey Garlic Chicken, plus everything I cooked this past week

Being quarantined at home for the past week has inspired me to cook even more. I tried a few new recipes and baked a tried-and-true dessert with the help of my man’s 12-year-old twin boys, who are also foodies. Our apple turnovers. The boys did such a great job! I also played the game: what can I make with the ingredients I have in my fridge / pantry? The result was, surprisingly, a success. Here it is! Tomato Mozzarella Bruschetta & Honey Blue Cheese Toast Since we had the boys this week, I tossed in a few extra goodies: banana splits, Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls, chocolate chip muffins, and Ghirardelli Caramel Turtle Brownies. I love when they’re here because they love food as much as we do a

Mangia! Homemade fettuccine for Sunday's Italian Dinner

Last night, I finally took the plunge and tried my hand at homemade fettuccine. I am half Italian, so it was time.

From New Orleans-inspired fare and Atlanta/Asian fusion to hot chicken and Asian street fare, here are a few Atlanta restaurants that I recommend and the one place that failed my foodie test. Lagarde American Eatery By Chef Jamie Adams, this casual restaurant serves up New Orleans-inspired cuisine, including some of my favorite southern comfort foods: Pimento Cheese, Cheesy Grits, and Po Boys. This is my third time here, and so far, I've loved every dish I've been served. This time, I ordered the Wedge Salad and a half poun

Affordable Atlanta Eats

This past week, I tried some new restaurants in my new hometown, Atlanta, Georgia. From healthy, seasonal fare, and award-winning ribs to burgers and nachos, check out the spots I loved and the one place that disappointed. TRUE FOOD KITCHEN Spaghetti Squash Casserole & Roasted Brussels Sprouts I've been trying to eat healthier and this casserole made that much easier since this was delicious. Made with crushed tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, caramelized onions, and zucchini, this healthy casserole hit the spot. It was light and tasty, yet filling. My one tiny complaint is that it was served lukewarm, other than that, it's a great dish. (Also pictured: Grass-fed B
