Italian Egg Rolls

A couple weeks back I had a girls night with my sister and we headed out to a new restaurant that opened up in Albany for some appetizers and cocktails. After going back and forth between what we wanted to order we saw the table of guys next to us had a plate of Sicilian egg rolls that looked absolutely delicious. So we put down our menus and ordered one portion to split. They were so fantastic that I had to try and recreate them at home.

Breakfast at Tesoros Cafe

I love a good breakfast spot where any day of the week I can pop in and enjoy a relaxing meal to start my day off right. That being said, I recently stumbled upon Tesoros Cafe (go ahead and like them on the Facebook) on Union Street in Schenectady while dropping off some dry cleaning earlier this week. I didn't have time to sit down and enjoy a meal so I just grabbed an iced coffee to go and promised I'd be back.


Goat Cheese & Tomato Pizza

I have and always will have a deep love for pizza.  During high school I worked in a couple of pizza joints and although I didn't exactly make the pizza for customers I always payed close attention to the techniques used by those who did.
That being said, I've created a new pizza combination about a week or so ago and made it again the other night. Let's just say there were only crumbs left 15 minutes after it came out of the oven.  


Burger 21

When you walk into Burger 21 you're greeted by smiling employees who are patiently waiting to hand you a menu so you can make a quick decision and order your food at the counter that lies straight ahead. 

Life happens...

Lately things have been crazy, hectic, extremely stressful, and overwhelmingly heartbreaking. But I'm doing my best to not let this roller coaster of emotions that is currently my life get me down, because it can only go up from here...right? I've stumbled across a bunch of quotes on Pinterest and Tumblr that have shown me there's a light at the end of the tunnel and thought I'd share them with you.


Peach Pastry

I don't eat pastries or other baked goods that often, but after creating a mixed berry pastry recipe with my sister last week I knew I had to test out a peach recipe for myself, and I am happy to report they came out wonderful! 

Rosemary & Lemon Thyme Buttered Chicken

I always say I don't like chicken because it's too dry. However, I think I've converted myself into an occasional chicken eater with a recipe I tried the other night for dinner.


Banging Breakfast Burrito

Breakfast burritos are the best. They have all my favorite breakfast items wrapped up in a perfect little bundle that you can either take on the go or sit down and enjoy with a big glass of OJ or an iced coffee.



Cheesy Zucchini Fritters with Dill Aioli

I'm a big fan of zucchini, it's one of the most versatile veggies out there. You can add it to a salad, turn it into pasta, or whip up a low carb pizza with it! This time I decided to turn my zucchinis into an appetizer and create cheesy zucchini fritters.
