Judgement Time: Chesterfield’s Restaurant

For my birthday dinner on Monday, my family and I decided to check out Chesterfield’s in Utica, NY. They offer a decent-sized menu, which you can view here, with mostly Italian options (although I wouldn’t classify this as an Italian restaurant). The pasta dishes were what intrigued me in the first place. There seemed to […]

Fettuccine Alfredo

Some dishes are classics. You’ve had them a million times, a million different ways, and you probably have your preferred version. They’re the kind of foods you don’t mess with. You stick to what’s good because, after all, you shouldn’t fix what isn’t broken, right? What you can do, however, is perfect something. And that’s […]

How-to: Cupcake Nails!

In honor of my 18th birthday today, I figured Cupcake Nails would be quite appropriate. I’ve got a step-by-step breakdown so you can do them too! They’re sweet, adorable, and not as hard to do as you might think. For the perfect celebration nails (or for a cupcake lover), give these a go!

Roasted & Toasted Taters

Potatoes are awesome. There’s no other veggies/starch like ’em. They’re the only veggie that don’t really taste like veggies. After all, most kids don’t refuse to eat their potatoes. String beans maybe, but not potatoes. Everybody loves them. I have a faint recollection of sitting in my high chair as a child and being forced […]

Healthy Cookie: Thin & Crispy White Pizza

Life is hard. No, not because of unemployment, taxes, SAT’s, or any of that stuff. Life is hard because really good food is really high in calories. (…And maybe because of that other stuff too, but that’s irrelevant.) Take pizza for example. Who doesn’t like pizza? Besides that one random guy/girl you’ll meet in your […]

Meet Your New Best Friend: Super Spatula

We’ve gotta talk about this guy. I call him “Super Spatula.” I imagine there’s some kind of a more sophisticated terminology for this tool, but for now, that will have to do. This spatula is the size of my head (possibly bigger). It’s the biggest spatula I’ve ever seen, a monster, a giant, the HSIC […]

Sweet & Simple: The Classic Egg in Bread

This dish has many names. Egg in a basket. Egg in a hole. Egg in a window. Or, as I was raised calling it, The Egg in Bread. It’s really just as simple as it sounds: an egg cooked in the middle of a slice of bread. You use only four ingredients (all of which […]

Buster Bars: A Tribute to Dairy Queen

I love Dairy Queen. If I had to pick my favorite place in existence on planet Earth at any given time, it would be Dairy Queen. I don’t care which one; they’re all amazing. If you’ve never been to one, then you can’t begin to comprehend my love. And even if you have, you still […]

Grilled Summer Veggies

It is mind boggling how wonderful simplicity can be. More often than not, we get caught up in over-complicating things. We think that, in order for something to be perfect, it must be complex and intricate, especially when it comes to recipes. We add endless ingredients and prepare them in complicated and sometimes just plain […]

Quadruple Grilled Cheese

Grilled cheese is the creme de la creme of all American comfort foods. Gooey melted cheese warms you from the inside out while golden-brown buttered bread is there to keep you company. The best part is how easy they are to make. You don’t have to be an expert chef to fry one up; anybody […]

Sweet & Simple: Oreos and Peanut Butter

There are many edible examples of a match made in heaven: french fries & ketchup, peanut butter & jelly, grilled cheese & soup. But have you ever heard of peanut butter and Oreos? It’s kind of an underground thing. You’ve either never imagined such a thing or you’ve been enjoying this pair in unison since […]

Double Recipe Day: Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce & Whipped Cream

Ice cream sundaes are a happy food. They make you feel like a kid (no matter what your age), they’re customizable, and they’re just so fun. Ice cream on it’s own is a whimsical icy treat. Then we’re talking about piling said ice cream sky-high with all kinds of good stuff: whipped cream, fudge sauce, […]
