Sloppy Joes featuring Vesper Bros. Signature Tomato Sauce

This recipe is also published on Fig West Chester. A few months ago, some friends and I were sitting around lamenting about food and cooking. My one friend said she loves to cook, but cooking big meals for just her and her daughter seemed silly. I chimed in that I love to cook, but as…

New on State Street: 320 Market Cafe

It goes without saying that I will pretty much eat anything. My favorite restaurant in West Chester has a new winter menu that includes rabbit and wild boar. I can’t wait to go back so I can eat all the things. In the meantime, I’m here in Media doing my food blogger thing. Last week…

Crock Pot Pulled Pork

Hey kiddies! (waves) It has been a while, hasn’t it? I’m not able to post as much as I used to but I made a recipe so amazing I just had to find the time to share. I found this amazing recipe for Crock pot pulled pork at Food.com. A few deviations to the recipe:…

FKF: Ginger Snap Ice Cream Sandwiches

I have not abandoned you! My semester JUST ended and I am officially back with a recipe that is sure to please your loved ones. I made this lovely dessert exactly one month ago, but now is the perfect time to debut them to the world. Though I did use vegan ginger snaps, the coffee ice cream…

Food Network Needs an Allergen Friendly Show

I am at home in Jersey today because I was in need of an energetic pick-me-up. I planned to upload a recipe for Jewish Apple Cake today, but my recipe failed. I bought a couple of new apples at Wolff’s Apple House in Media and I was so excited about baking with them. The apple…

Cooking 1-0-fucking-1: Egg in a basket

The title of this post some from a darling friend of mine who bravely admitted that she has checked out the blog but doesn’t have a “fucking clue” what she’s doing in the kitchen.  She proceeded to ask me how to warm up a doggie bag from the previous night’s restaurant dinner.  “Hun, just put…

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Hel-lo!  This year for my golden birthday, I decided to tackle a dairy-free urban legend – ice cream cake!  While this was more simple than I would have expected, I think the birthday gods were smiling on me.  The cake was delicious and playing around with tie-dyed icing was gloriously fun.  My only regret is…

Pasta Fagioli

Betcha my grams never knew what a vegan wizard she was, whipping up delicious, piping hot, pasta fagioli whenever we had a snow day.  But oh Mama Mary (and my mama after her, and my hubby’s mama with a Spanish flare), she managed to fill our tummies and warm us up for something that only…

Cotton Candy Meringues

Sweet, cute and you don’t want to ever see them go,  these cotton candy meringues are for my pop-pop.  Special equipment: to get the swirly colors, I used a pastry bag with a star tip.  You can buy a disposable but invest in a good one – it will last you for years if you take…

Eggplant Parm Stackers

You all know by now that I love eggplant.  There are few ways as delicious as fried eggplant – honestly, fried cardboard is probably pretty good!  And over the years, I’ve grown to those love these stackers more than traditional baked parmesan.  And the good news – you can use the sauce with grilled or baked eggplant…

Brussel Sprouts Haluski

Haluski is a pretty traditional Polish dish made from egg noodles, cabbage, onions and a heart attack’s worth of butter.  Every family makes it a little different and even the Food Network’s Guy Fieri has a recipe for it.  (Honestly, I think his looks a bit insane with all those ingredients because I find the simplicity the…

Fat Kid Tendencies

Now that I have given you the reclaimed meaning of Fat Kid, I feel it is necessary to explain the implications that come along with such a term. As a recap: Fat Kid no longer is about shame or overindulgence, it is now a term of endearment. A Fat Kid is one who celebrates sustenance…
