Favorite Slow Cooker Recipes

Fall has arrived! Well, this warm weather doesn’t feel like it’s arrived, BUT today is the first FULL DAY of Fall! So we put together our favorite slow cooker recipes. Did anyone feel a slight chill yesterday around 10:21am? Our Crock Pot is one of our favorite kitchen appliances. The amount of chili and beef stew […]

Sloppy Joes

I love going home to visit my mother. Although I do feel like I gain 5 pounds every time I visit, especially when eating her sloppy joes. I’m consistently being feed and asked, “Are you hungry?” even after I just ate. I never met someone who loved feeding people more than my mother, and that’s […]

Mint cookies and cream ice cream waffle sandwiches

It’s what unicorn dreams are made of. Last week, we showed you how we stayed cool with our homemade cold brew. Last weekend we cooled off with some margaritas at our favorite brunch spot and made some ice cream. These mint cookies and cream ice cream waffle sandwiches were delicious. We’ve wanted to make mint ice cream for a […]

Baked Sweet Potato Fries

We’ve tried to make sweet potato fries for what seems like forever.

But how are there so many recipes out there and we can’t make […]

Cold Brew Coffee

This heat wave drove us to drink. Cold brew coffee that is. Our mornings typically start around 7:30 a.m. with a cup of coffee, oatmeal or cereal, and The Today Show. While we always see Jill’s Steals and Deals, we’ve never had an urge to buy any of her steals. It wasn’t until the (affiliate links coming up) […]

Southern Fried Fish Tacos

We’ve been on a taco spree lately! We’re not sure if we’re just craving Mexican dishes or if we’re making all of these tacos to pair with the different margaritas we’ve mixed up lately. Anywho, we loved these Southern fried fish tacos and can’t wait to make them again. Our neighborhood seafood market had a great selection of […]

Frozen Pineapple Margarita

It seems as though the pineapple is the new owl. So we decided to add a new flavor to the Marquisrita lineup. We made a frozen Pineapple Margarita! Don’t you love our gold pineapple tumblers? We’ve had quite the heat wave here in the city over the last week. As usual the 6 train has […]

Celebrating our Blogiversary

Today, our baby turns five years old so we’re celebrating! Yes, our blog baby and we’re celebrating our blogiversary! Looking back at some of our first posts, we’ve come a long way – in both recipes and photos. In 2011, we started sharing our food adventures on my personal Tumblr page as new Hofstra University alumni. We wanted to share […]
