Spicy Summer Beans & Sausage

Y’all need to know you almost didn’t get a picture of these spicy beans and sausage. Why? Because somewhere along the line my well-crafted, time-tested method for making sure nobody eats my bloggable food broke down this week! Let me tell you how that usually goes.

Easy Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup

So…I had a problem when I was photographing this Chicken Tortilla Soup. No it was not the tortilla chips (although thanks for the vote of confidence). This. Soup. Is. So. Good. It’s like…”put-it-in-the-crockpot-and-go-back-every-five-minutes-to-test-and-see-if-it’s-still-good” good. It’s…”take a small slurp between every shot you take of the recipe” good. It’s “this-soup-may-never-make-it-to-the-dinner-table” good! Thankfully, this is a big batch recipe, so that didn’t happen. …

Spaghetti Squash Ramen with Shrimp

Spaghetti squash ramen. I know what you’re thinking. “Why for, Nik?” Ok so here’s the truth. I grew up in what one might describe as a…humble…household. And so there were days when ramen was dinner.

Baked Eggplant Parmesan with Zoodles

I think I’m a little obsessed with this picture. Right now Oodles of Zoodles is in the hands of my very trusted and capable brand manager/graphic designer. She showed me a proof recently and when I got it I opened it eagerly, whizzing through the pages (it’s an ebook so I was looking from my phone) to get to THIS recipe …

Three Kicka$$ Holiday Cheeseballs

Four Bariatric Post-Ops & LOTS of Sriracha

I debated whether or not to share my post-op sriracha party. Why? While I’m not afraid of the food police, just like the rest of you I kind of get sick of being food policed. I mean, sure, it comes with the territory of being a food blogger but at a point even I can get testy. But, in the end …
