The end of football season is upon us and it’s almost time for the Super Bowl! And always, for me, it’s all about the eats! Buffalo Chicken anything is always a good way to go.
This dip is ridiculously easy to make with just about 10-15 minutes of prep. I recommend using rotisserie chicken from the grocery store to save even more time! I know a lot of people love to pair blue cheese with buffalo chicken, but I have to admit that I am not a fan of blue cheese. So you can add it to the dip or leave it out! This dip is perfectly cheesy with a kick of heat from the buffalo sauce.
Oh! And I am super excited to announce that we are now going to start making fun recipe tutorial videos for you guys! You will be able to see them on the Eat. Drink. Love. Facebook Page or on YouTube! I’ve posted our first video below so please check it out!
With less than a month to go, I’m already thinking about Valentine’s Day. Mostly because it gives me the perfect excuse to make red velvet desserts!
A few months ago, the blogging community was rocked by the sudden and unexpected death of our dear friend, Joan. Today I am so honored to be guest posting on Joan’s incredible and popular dessert blog, Chocolate, Chocolate and More. Though I never got to meet Joan in person, she was always so kind and helpful in our community. Once the word of her passing had gotten around, bloggers all banded together to come up with a plan to keep Joan’s blog alive. You see, for many bloggers, we depend on our blogs to support our families. Joan left behind three beautiful children. Our goal is to continue to post delicious recipes on Joan’s blog so that it may continue to support her family for as long as possible!
While I love making homemade tomato sauce that just simmers away for hours on end, let’s be real, there is not always enough time for that! Sometimes I decide what’s for dinner at the last minute and it’s always nice to have a quick and easy sauce recipe on hand. This Garlic and Basil Tomato Sauce is ready in just about 20 minutes and can be served with any pasta!
For this sauce, I also added in some of my favorite olives, the Garlic and Basil Marinated Olives from STAR Fine Foods. The olives are so flavorful and work perfectly in this sauce for extra flavor and texture!
And speaking of olives, my friends at STAR are running their How Do you O-live Sweepstakes where you all have the chance to win up to $5000 and other great prizes! STAR wants to know how you enjoy olives whether it’s just for snacking, appetizers, or dinners so click the graphic below to enter the contest!
Ok, so back to this sauce really quick. While the olives themselves have lots of great basil and garlic flavors, I also added fresh basil and garlic to the sauce. This is a simple and versatile sauce that you can throw together for any dinner!
I have been absolutely LOVING the weather we’ve been having for the last month. It’s been in the low-to-mid 60’s, some days a tad chillier. I am soaking up every bit of this cooler weather because within the next two months, it’s going to climb and climb!
Between the weather and the fact that all three of us have been sick since Christmas, I’ve been making a LOT of soup around here. A Lot. While I’ve mostly been making chicken noodle soup, I’ve had to change it up a bit with some of my tortilla soup, and this easy peasy minestrone soup!
This soup is so incredibly simple to make. I love the heartiness of the beans in a minestrone soup. I used cannellini because that’s what I had in my pantry, but kidney or navy beans also work well. You can also add in pasta if desired, but I left it out of mine as I have been trying to watch my carbs. This minestrone soup is easy and comforting and perfect to enjoy on a cool night!

Happy New Year, my friends! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday with your loved ones. We went to Florida this year and while we had a great time, we all came back sick for the second time since Thanksgiving!
If you’re anything like me, once January begins every year, I am always thinking about how I need to detox for a few weeks from all the heavy and sugary treats I enjoyed over the holidays. For me, this includes lots of protein and veggies and less carbs. Lettuce Wraps always fit this bill!
Today, I’ve made Honey Chipotle Chicken Lettuce Wraps and I’m in love! The filling includes lean ground chicken, red bell pepper, and black beans. The sauce is also nice and light. The balance of the heat from the chipotle pepper and the sweetness from the honey is just perfection. These lettuce wraps are the best way to kick off the new year!
