Peanut Butter-Stuffed Chocolate Cookies

You know what I love about American food culture? We’re are convinced that the best kind of food is STUFFED. For example: baked potatoes are better stuffed with sour cream & bacon. Pizza crust is better stuffed with cheese. I feel like I should also mention the monstrosity of a “turducken” was invented here. It’sContinue reading “Peanut Butter-Stuffed Chocolate Cookies”

Buffalo Chicken Dip

I’m an appetizer girl. No, not a normal person who eats one appetizer and an entree. I am the person who orders 3 appetizers in lieu of a meal. Anytime I go out to eat I end up surrounded by plates with my pants unbuttoned. Sexy, I know. Truthfully, I made this recipe because I’mContinue reading “Buffalo Chicken Dip”

Corn & Potato Chowder

Hmmm… it’s 90 degrees outside today. You know what sounds good? HOT THICK CHOWDER. I truly don’t know why I’ve been craving corn chowder lately, given the Florida heat. (NO I’m not pregnant, leave me alone). I’m also NOT a soup person. I can’t relate to people who actually like mushy veggies and noodles inContinue reading “Corn & Potato Chowder”

Homemade Biscuits

I’ve been on a biscuit journey. My kitchen has seen many failed biscuits. Flat ones, crumbly ones, burnt ones, you name it. I have rage-quit making biscuits many times. I really think I just over-complicate it. After many mornings flinging biscuit dough around my kitchen and mumbling swear words, I’ve got a recipe that’s idiot-proof.Continue reading “Homemade Biscuits”

Chickpea Brownies

I know what you’re thinking. “This sounds gross. I’m not going to make this. Alli is stupid.” Maybe you aren’t thinking that. But y’all, I have stumbled upon greatness (for once in my life) with this creation. My husband and I have such a major sweet tooth. We’re always reaching for ice cream or chocolateContinue reading “Chickpea Brownies”

Almond Chocolate Chip Biscotti

Poor biscotti. They’re just skinny lil overbaked cookies that only grandmas love…OR ARE THEY? I remember where I was when I ate my first biscotti. I was housesitting for a neighbor, and was rifling through their cabinets for food. I came upon a chocolate-dipped biscotti, and thought “welp, I guess it’s kinda like a cookie.”Continue reading “Almond Chocolate Chip Biscotti”

Chicken Piccata Meatballs

Being creative is getting REAL old, man. This dang quarantine is cleaning me OUT of ideas. There are only so many things I can do with the same ingredients over and over! On top of that, my fridge caught on fire last week, (everything’s fine lol) so I’m pulling recipe ideas out of my butt.Continue reading “Chicken Piccata Meatballs”

Frito Casserole

I have done all the dishes. Every single dish that’s ever existed has been washed by my hands. I feel as though my entire quarantine has been spent slaving over the kitchen sink. Yesterday, after telling my husband for the 36th time that I’m never washing a dish again, I realized that it’s because I’mContinue reading “Frito Casserole”
