Pappardelle with a Creamy Mushroom and Sausage Sauce

We are fortunate to live across the street from the newly opened Ponce City Market here in Atlanta (check it out here). This awesome market has several shops and restaurants. One night we felt lazy and weren’t sure what to make. We had some leftover sausage and mushrooms from some stuffed mushrooms we had made for a holiday party and wanted to use those up. We decided to get some fresh, homemade pasta from Bella Alimentari, one of the market/restaurants in PCM, and whip up this delicious, rich and easy recipe. Enjoy!

2015 Updates

As promised, this post will provide some updates as to what Nevin and I have been doing in 2015 thus far. The reason that there was such a lull in posting came from a few different factors. The first was that I decided to apply to PhD programs in Neuroscience and Clinical Psychology and spent almost the entirety of late January – late February interviewing. I was very fortunate to be able to travel around the United States and meet some renowned professors from fantastic universities.

Sriracha Honey Lime Pan Roasted Chicken Thighs

Hi everyone! I want to apologize profusely for the lack of activity on this blog for the last several months. I will be making a separate post detailing the events of 2015 and all that has happened to us! Please let it be known that the lack of blog posts did not mean that Nevin and I stopped cooking. That would be blasphemous. In fact, we are sitting on a backlog of delicious recipes that I cannot wait to publish here. For now, I am actually sharing something we made last night and was just out-of-this-world, finger-lickin’ good! I love some heat, and this recipe provides a small kick, but not too much that non-spicy food lovers couldn’t also enjoy. Add this to your go-to recipe list, seriously.

Refreshing Avocado Salad

We wanted something to pair with our delicious Jamaican Jerk Chicken, and decided that a creamy avocado salad would be the perfect side! I love pretty much all things avocado. so this salad was a big hit with me. I’d love to know what you think!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! Wishing you all a healthy and happy 2015. Nevin and I started the day off right with a gluttonous brunch. We had some mixed berry homemade muffins that were filled with delicious bites of strawberries, blackberries and raspberries. We also enjoyed chocolate chip, banana pancakes as well as nice scrambled eggs with peppers, onions, and cheese.  Continue reading “Happy New Year!”
