I pretty much stumbled upon this gem, as it’s hidden on a little side street off of Ventura in Woodland Hills. I always saw the elevated Leo & Lily (www.leonlily.com) sign as I drove by, but never gave it much of a second thought. (more…)
I hate wasting leftovers. Like, HATE it. So what was I supposed to do with the leftover puff pastry from my Mini Puff Quiches and the leftover filling from my Sausage Ricotta Calzones. Make Sausage Ricotta Puffs of course! (more…)
These sausage ricotta calzones are great to make for a quick dinner. And they are also really easy to freeze for future meals! (more…)
I have been wanting to go to this restaurant for YEARS. Probably since my time working for Disney…yes, I was employed by Disney one summer long long ago. (more…)
Root Beer Float Cupcakes – yummy summer treat!
So, I had cousins in town this past weekend. From both sides of my family. BBQs all weekend long! (more…)
We eat a lot of eggs at our house, and I was looking for something a little bit different to do, so I decided to try our a mini quiche recipe! I was initially going to make this for breakfast, but then decided that it would make a great dinner! It was quick and easy and delicious! (more…)
I’ve been wanting to make these forever. And what better occasion to make strawberry and blueberry mini pies than 4th of July!
These cute, delicious desserts were the perfect post-firework treat! (more…)
One of my favorite food memories is that of boat dinners with my Great Grandma Lil. I don’t even remember what the occasion was, or who all was there, but I remember those huge boats, crammed full of food, being carried to our table by multiple waiters. (more…)
I’ve been working pretty long hours lately, so I’ve been looking for fun crock-pot dishes that I can quickly throw together in the morning (or the night before) to slow cook throughout the day and be ready when I get home from work, starving. I stumbled upon an idea for a breakfast casserole from jimmy dean, and it inspired this awesome, yummy, filling Brinner Egg Dish. (more…)
Since Matt moved down here from Montana, I think he really misses red meat. So, once and a while I’ll make a meat dish, although I’m really more of a chicken and fish kinda girl. On our honeymoon, we bought a Cooking for Two cookbook, and I’ve been trying to explore recipes out of it. We’ve made the Szechuan Stir-Fried Steak a few times. It’s pretty quick, easy, and yummy!
