One of my girlfriends recently returned from a holiday in Iceland and it sparked my interest. What is the food like there? When I think of Nordic food, I think of the cliché pickled herring and Rose Nylund’s cringeworthy recipes …

A delightfully different risotto! Enjoy Roasted Beet Risotto with Asiago & Thyme for a special night in.

Well this Roasted Beet Risotto with Asiago & Thyme makes me blush. I’ve always loved a classic well made risotto but the addition of peppery roasted beets elevates this dish to the next level. This has taken its rightful place as the queen of all fall risottos. Consider upping your risotto game and trying this recipe!…

Bacon & Egg Baked Breakfast Cups are equally convenient if you’re cooking for one or feeding a family of five.

I suck at breakfast! There is no denying it anymore. My fiancé is always getting on my case about not eating breakfast and he’s starting to sound like a broken record (it’s been almost 3 years).

Tuna melts and tuna salad on fresh greens is definitely a regular in house. It’s something you can whip up quickly and modify the ingredients based on what you have.

My fiancés idea of comfort food is a nice creamy tuna melt and he’s as happy as a little clam when I make this for him. He’s going to kill me when he reads this.
