How To Make Foolproof Vegetarian Quiche

Quiche is one of the ultimate brunch foods. It’s pretty healthy. There’s no shortage of fat (cream and cheese) and I wasn’t very light handed with the salt on this one either. That being said, each slice is packed full of protein and nutrients from the kale, mushrooms and other veg, so I’ll take it.… Continue reading How To Make Foolproof Vegetarian Quiche

Sweet and Spicy Chipotle Poppers

Mini sweet peppers, stuffed with smoky, cheesy spread, breaded, and fried. You can’t go wrong. I know, I know, the holidays are almost over and everyone has gained 10 pounds and feels like if they eat cheese again they’ll die. Give it a week and you’ll be ready for these, I promise. These are a… Continue reading Sweet and Spicy Chipotle Poppers

Crisped Rice Cheese Wafers

As I’m sure many of you did over the holidays, I over-indulged. Chocolate, cheese, bread, booze…almost every single day to the point where I feel I could live off smoothies and soup forever. Of course that only lasts a day until I rediscover my love for pizza, but still, I try. These wafers are honestly… Continue reading Crisped Rice Cheese Wafers

Smoky Sweet Potato Cheddar Soup with Chipotle Peppers

Comfort foods tend to be super greasy and carb-packed, but not all of them have to be that way. I mean, I don’t complain if they are. I’m not likely to turn down a big bowl of homemade mac ‘n’ cheese…if I do, there’s something wrong. That being said, sometimes a bowl of soup can… Continue reading Smoky Sweet Potato Cheddar Soup with Chipotle Peppers

Greek Feta, Sun-Dried Tomato and Pistachio Truffles

These truffles are your next party staple. A step beyond plain cheese and crackers, while still being easy enough to make so that they don’t consume your whole day. I love them for a few reasons: Anything encrusted in pistachios is guarenteed to be good. It’s essentially a ball of cheese. No complaints there. The… Continue reading Greek Feta, Sun-Dried Tomato and Pistachio Truffles

Stovetop Macaroni and Cheese with Mushrooms and Shallots

Bummed out by the cold weather? Mac n’ cheese solves all problems. I made a Baked Macaroni and Cheese With Panko a while back, but I have to admit the stovetop version is much better. I personally think the cheesier, creamier and thicker, the better. Also, I don’t know if anybody else has run into this… Continue reading Stovetop Macaroni and Cheese with Mushrooms and Shallots

Glazed Baked Bourgogne with Walnuts

If you’re a fan of cheese, you’re a friend of mine. Bourgogne is a french cheese similar to brie, but more potent in taste—especially when melted. The texture is basically the same as brie (soft, runny when warmed up, gooey) but there’s a bit of a blue-cheesy type taste as well. My mom once glazed… Continue reading Glazed Baked Bourgogne with Walnuts
