Recipe Review: Spaghetti Carbonara inspired by Master of None from Binging with Babish

Original recipe from the Babish cookbook (we met Babish and got our signed in January 2020!). Steven's made this recipe before (I think before we even started dating - but I know I saw him post about it on Facebook so we were at least friends), but I have never had carbonara. Now, before you … Continue reading Recipe Review: Spaghetti Carbonara inspired by Master of None from Binging with Babish

Recipe Review: Oreo Cheesecake from Handle the Heat

Original Recipe from Handle the Heat I got a springform pan for my wedding last year, and I hadn't had a chance to use it yet, so my brilliant plan was to make a cheesecake for myself and my husband, without realizing just how big a ten-inch springform pan is. Note: if you're going to … Continue reading Recipe Review: Oreo Cheesecake from Handle the Heat

Recipe Review: Best Chocolate Cupcakes from Handle the Heat

I went to visit my friend for her birthday back in March, and decided I wanted to take her something fancy (since we hadn't seen each other since my wedding in November), and I didn't want to make a cake (I'm not great at cake), but figured that cupcakes would be amazing since they're smaller, … Continue reading Recipe Review: Best Chocolate Cupcakes from Handle the Heat

Recipe Review: Holiday Tortellini Soup from Taste of Home

Yes, we're back in the giant Taste of Home cookbook this week to talk about another favorite of ours: Holiday Tortellini Soup. I think this is the one that we've made the most changes to: by not adding in one of the major listed ingredients. What We Changed: I've never liked sausage-like meats in my … Continue reading Recipe Review: Holiday Tortellini Soup from Taste of Home

Recipe Review: Naan from Rasa Malaysia

We decided to make butter chicken and realized we didn't have any naan or pita bread and didn't really want to go out in the rain and get more ingredients, so I decided to search online and find a recipe for naan, hoping for a bread machine recipe but found this one from Rasa Malaysia … Continue reading Recipe Review: Naan from Rasa Malaysia

Recipe Review: Martha Stewart’s Buttermilk Biscuits

After trying and failing miserably with Biscuit Head's cathead biscuits on a Saturday morning, I was determined to redeem myself the very next day (Sunday) by making buttermilk biscuits that worked. And so my husband found Martha Stewart's buttermilk biscuit recipe that had similar ratios to the Biscuit Head one, and I went to work. … Continue reading Recipe Review: Martha Stewart’s Buttermilk Biscuits

Recipe Review: Biscuit Head’s Cathead Biscuits

Asheville, North Carolina is one of my favorite places - it's where Steven asked me to marry him and it's where we went on our socially-distanced honeymoon in the Time of Covid. And one of our favorite places to eat there (recently discovered!) is Biscuit Head. Steven got me the official Biscuit Head cookbook for … Continue reading Recipe Review: Biscuit Head’s Cathead Biscuits

Recipe Review: Bread Machine Pretzels from Art & the Kitchen

This week's recipe is from Art & the Kitchen! I'm sure I've talked about this on my blog before, but I got a bread machine for my birthday last year and I've used it at least once if not twice a week since then. We make a ton of sandwiches since we're working from home, … Continue reading Recipe Review: Bread Machine Pretzels from Art & the Kitchen

Recipe Review: Chicken Methi from Sorted Food

My husband and I have been OBSESSED with Sorted Food on YouTube lately, and we've watched nearly their entire catalogue from the past three years (they've been doing YouTube videos for 10 years, though, so we've got a ways to go!). We've been mostly focusing on their challenge videos, the gadget review videos, and stuff … Continue reading Recipe Review: Chicken Methi from Sorted Food
