Cheesy Gordita Crunch

An Update + Some Gorditas

Hey ya’ll! So, I guess it’s been a little while.  Earlier this year I crashed and burned and suffered from what is commonly known as ‘blogger burnout’.  This is probably the second or third time I’ve gone through this since starting SFB.  If you’re not a food blogger, it can be difficult to understand just

Arroz con Crema

Arroz Con Crema

I may have mentioned once or a hundred times that //Distrito// is one of my favorite restaurants in Philadelphia.  They used to have this dish on their menu that was so good it legit brought tears to my eyes – arroz con crema.  It was a rice side dish that was cheesy, creamy, warm, and

Balsamic Bruschetta Grilled Chicken Sandwiches

Balsamic Bruschetta Grilled Chicken Sandwiches

I am actually really proud of this recipe. This recipe came to me in bursts of ideas over the course of a day when I was trying to think of how I could use up some leftover bruschetta.  At first I thought about piling it onto a piece of grilled chicken.  And forking-and-knifing it. And

BBQ Chicken Quesadillas

BBQ Chicken Quesadilla

Just in time for Cinco de Mayo, I have a yummy Mexican recipe for you!! A little while ago I made a batch of slow-cooked BBQ chicken for my husband’s work lunches.  And it turned out I’d made just a bit too much.  Like he wasn’t going to eat it all before it went bad.

Beef Bourguignon

Beef Bourguignon

Earlier this year, I mentioned in a post that I joined a really inspiring food blogging group on Facebook.  This group is full of so much fun and positivity.  And, duh, photographic inspiration!  Seeing everyone else’s work cuts both ways for me – on the one hand, I feel like I have so much work

Beef Enchiladas with Chipotle-Pasilla Gravy

Beef Enchiladas with Chipotle-Pasilla Gravy

I’m not sure if you’ve paid much attention or not, but, I love Mexican food.  LOVE.  Mexican food.  Nachos are my absolute favorite food ever, but, enchiladas come in as a close second. I typically prefer chicken enchiladas, but these beef enchiladas caught my eye some time ago, mostly because of the enchilada sauce recipe.

Better Burrito Bowls

You guysssssss. If you’ve noticed, I’m SO sorry for my absence. If you haven’t noticed, it’s cool. So I am finding out very quickly that getting a house ready to put on the market is no freakin’ joke.  Since early January, I have spent part or all of every single weekend packing stuff I don’t

Blue Duck's Cheesesteak Nachos

Blue Duck’s Cheesesteak Nachos

Hello friends. As you know, I live in the Land of the Cheesesteak.  I love cheesesteaks.  You can hardly drive a mile in any direction in Philadelphia without passing a place where you can get a cheesesteak.  Cheesesteaks are the bomb. These nachos were inspired by my favorite neighborhood restaurant, The Blue Duck.  Back in

Bread Dip

Bread Dip

You guys, this is the greatest dip ever known to man.  I’d put my life on it. When I was a kid, my dad was into politics, and my mom was forever hosting campaign-or-something-related events at our house.  All us kids had to hide upstairs while they had all these important people over till all

Broccoli Cheese Risotto

Broccoli Cheese Risotto

Since making my very first risotto a few months back and discovering exactly how not hard it was, I have sort of been on a risotto kick.  This is the third one I’ve made, and I can’t wait to try more.  I especially love this one because it’s a good way for me to get

Broccoli Potato Soup

Broccoli Potato Chowder

A couple weeks ago my girl Jodie over at //Two Lucky Spoons// posted a recipe on Instagram of her Ham Broccoli and Potato Chowder and my mouth instantly started watering.  Only problem is, I kinda hate ham (fight me), but I’m also leaning towards vegetarian lately.  So I asked her, could I make it without

Brown Rice Paella

Brown Rice Paella

I love paella. Correction:  I love this paella. Until recently, paella was intimidating to me because of three things: It typically has seafood in it (ew!). I was under the impression it took forever to make. It typically has white rice in it. So mostly I avoided it until I stumbled upon this gem in

Bruschetta French Bread Pizza

Bruschetta French Bread Pizza

Did you guys ever find yourself with like a ton of leftover bruschetta and no idea what to do with it? No?  Yeah, me neither.  Not often anyway.  But when I do have some leftover, I usually make this the very next day! So one of the ways I originally toyed with introducing cheese to

Buffalo Chicken Cheesesteaks

Ok so here’s the thing. The lighting in my pictures these days SUCKS.  And I’m apologizing but not really because I’m kind of actually impressed with myself that I’m managing to keep up with blogging with all the crazy that’s going on in my life right now.  And while I certainly know that there is

Buffalo Chicken Pizza

Buffalo Chicken Pizza

Do you guys have any idea how fast the sun sets in the winter?  It’s not fair to food bloggers.  So you’ll have to excuse the appearance of these pictures.  I tried my hardest – twice! That’s my favorite from the first try.  Silly me was so excited about the pizza that I didn’t notice the

Cacio e Pepe

Cacio e Pepe

Over the summer, I took a girls overnight trip to NYC with my mom, sister, and daughter.  We had dinner at this amazing restaurant called //Cacio e Pepe//, and the whole reason we went was so we could eat… cacio e pepe.  I had seen some //videos on Instagram// of them mixing up the pasta

Cheesesteaks

If you don’t know by now, I’m from Philly – land of the cheesesteak, land of the soft pretzel, land of Wawa, land of Tastykakes. We love our Philly food, especially the cheesesteak.  What I love about the cheesesteak is that you could ask 50 different people what their favorite cheesesteak shop is, and you would

Chicken and Waffles Benedict

Chicken and Waffles Benedict

I mentioned a couple weeks ago that I joined a Facebook group for food bloggers.  The owner of that group is running a project called #365Recipes, which is somewhat similar to my #52NewEats and #12NewTreats projects.  It’s just another way to spark my creativity and get me in the kitchen!! The ingredient for today was

Chicken Enchiladas Suizas

Chicken Enchiladas Suizas

Despite how much I positively adore Mexican food, I have not always been much a fan of verde salsa or sauces.  Why?  I feel like they can be inconsistent from restaurant to restaurant.  Some places, it’s ridiculously spicy; some places, it’s really tangy.  Some places it’s well-balanced and I really like it.  But I haven’t

Chicken Piccata

Chicken Piccata and Roasted Potatoes

Earlier this week I gave you a romantic steak dinner menu to serve to your special someone on Valentine’s Day.  But maybe you don’t like steak.  Or red wine.  Or broccoli (I don’t blame you, I eat it very begrudgingly).  This would be my next pick to serve to someone on Valentine’s Day.  Chicken piccata

Chicken Saltimbocca

Ahhh chicken saltimbocca.  Not the prettiest dish to photograph, but a delicious dish to devour. I am not even really sure where this recipe came from, it’s one of those that have been in my family forever.  I probably found it on the interwebz back in the days I first started cooking and it has

Chicken Taco Salad Bowls

My sister loves taco salads. Sometimes, when we go out to pig out on Mexican food, she will gravely disappoint me and order a taco salad.  Meanwhile I’ll order 3 enchiladas, 2 tacos, rice, queso, and who knows what else.  But she just loves taco salads and sometimes that’s what she gets while I sit

Chicken and Wild Rice Casserole

Chicken Wild Rice Casserole

One of my seriously all-time favorite cold weather recipes is Pinch of Yum’s //chicken and wild rice soup//.  I have never really been much of a soup person, but when I think about telling someone about this soup, I imagine that all the words coming out of my mouth are in CAPS LOCK.  It’s requiring

Chipotle Cheeseburger Patty Melt

Holla ya’ll! We are well into January here in Philadelphia and you know what’s wonderful?  Today we received our first snowfall.  The snowfall itself is not actually all that wonderful, but the fact that it took so long to get here is pretty awesome.  I mean winter is already like almost half over.  I love

Chipotle Chicken Cheesesteaks

Chipotle Chicken Cheesesteaks

I am a Philly girl and in Philly we love our cheesesteaks.  Every Philadelphian you talk to will have a different favorite cheesesteak place.  Personally, I like Jimmy G’s, Sonny’s, and D’Alessandro’s.  I’ve never really thought to make them at home though because honestly, I am surrounded by so many good cheesesteak shops that can

Chipotle Chicken Grilled Cheese

Chipotle Chicken Grilled Cheese

There’s this adorable restaurant over in Jersey called the Pop Shop that makes amazing food and they have a huge section on their menu just for grilled cheese.  One day I tried what they call their Frazer Grilled Cheese – it’s a griddled chicken breast with Monterey Jack cheese, jalapeno-onion relish, and chipotle mayo.  I’ll

Cholula Mac and Cheese

Cholula Mac & Cheese

Once I perfected my homemade //macaroni and cheese//, I started noticing that my husband was desecrating his plate of perfectly creamy mac and cheese with hot sauce.  😱  The nerve! Originally it was Tabasco.  I couldn’t believe such things.  Who dare muddle my perfectly perfected cheese sauce with Tabasco?  No!  No no no. But then

Classic Nachos

Classic Nachos

You guys.  It’s nachos. NACHOS! I don’t know how or when nachos became my most favorite food on the planet, but seriously, to me, there is nothing better in this world than a fat messy plate of nachos.  With or without meat, with or without beans, I could really care less.  There aren’t many nachos

Creamy Asiago Cheese Garlic Tortellini

For this week’s 52 New Eats recipe, I chose – yet another – sorry not sorry but actually yes a little sorry – pasta recipe.  This week though, my daughter picked it out, and she wanted to choose because she hasn’t liked any of the recipes I’ve made so far.  🙄  I know, I know.

Creamy Brie Mac and Cheese

Hey ya’ll!  For this week’s 52 New Eats recipe I chose another mac and cheese dish – primarily because my daughter LOVES Brie cheese, and LOVES Ritz crackers, and I though, why wouldn’t she LOVE this?! Silly me.  🙄 She’s too picky I suppose.  She didn’t like this mac and cheese, but I thought it

Creamy Roasted Garlic Tortellini

Creamy Roasted Garlic Tortellini

Creamy.  Roasted garlic.  Tortellini. Hands-down, without a doubt, my most favoritest pasta dish of all time. I know I know, it doesn’t look like a whole lot in the picture.  But I can assure you that this pasta dish is so flavorful and so filling and so creamy and so slutty. Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaany years ago, when

Creamy Tomato Mascarpone Pasta

Creamy Tomato Mascarpone Pasta

It is pretty much a given, that if a recipe has the word “creamy” in the title, I will be all about it.  I looooove creamy sauces and dishes.  Can’t get enough.  Creamy sauces for drowning, dousing, blanketing, dipping, smothering… are all my favoritest sauces ever.  I would eat piles of vegetables if I could

Crispy Chicken Dijon

Crispy Chicken Dijon

This is a story of two relatively-healthy recipes that got married to make one sluttacular recipe. Ok, maybe they aren’t totally healthy individually.  But together they are pretty much not healthy at all, and totally slutty. You might have seen the creamy Dijon chicken recipe floating around Pinterest a while ago.  I was sucked in

Crockpot Sausage Peppers and Onions

Crockpot Sausage, Peppers, and Onions

Who doesn’t like sausage, peppers, and onions?  It’s one of my favorite Italian dishes.  I was recently at a work teambuilding event and they had a catered lunch for us.  I have been following an 80/20 grain-free rule over the past couple of months and all I could eat at this catered lunch was sausage,

Hey guys!  So today I have a super duper really super healthy pasta dish for you! (Did you detect my sarcasm through your screen?) Really all I was being sarcastic about was the “healthy” part.  This IS the slutty food blog, after all.  Not the healthy food blog.  There are enough of those. This is

French Onion Grilled Cheese

French Onion Grilled Cheese

When I first made //this French onion dip// for #52NewEats last year, I was so blown away by the flavor that I was immediately interested in how else I could use French fried onions in other recipes.  And one of the first things that came to mind was a French onion grilled cheese! I chose

French Onion Poutine

One of my best days ever was just a few weeks ago when I discovered that a local farm carries cheese curds.  I saw them and gasped on the spot and yanked the cold case door open and squealed with delight!  I made such a(n embarrassing) scene that the cashier a couple aisles away poked

French Onion Zoodle Bake

French Onion Zoodle Bake

This dish popped my zoodle cherry. I have been wanting to try zoodles for a while now, but I hadn’t quite found the right recipe until I found this one. I love alfredo sauce too much to cover zoodles with it. I might try a Bolognese sauce on zoodles, but for this month, we need

Fresh Ricotta Toasts

So like.  Did y’all know you can make ricotta at home?  And that it’s better than almost anything you could buy at a store (unless you have access to some mom and pop Italian market that makes it fresh)? It’s true.  And it was SO easy to make, that of course I immediately had to

Fresh Tomato and Garlic Penne

Fresh Tomato and Garlic Penne

Today, I bring you one of my favorite old-time recipes from when I first started learning how to cook: fresh tomato and garlic penne. When I first started learning how to cook, I was also sort of discovering that I liked pasta.  Weird, I know, right?  Like, who am I?  I don’t even know sometimes.

Cheeseburger Macaroni

Homemade Cheeseburger Macaroni

First and foremost, can I just lament how hard it is to photograph this dish? I mean, I don’t really know how you make homemade cheeseburger macaroni pretty.  I suppose I could have thrown something green on top of it, like parsley?  But then it wouldn’t really be a knockoff of Hamburger Helper. Let’s face

So I almost bought this shirt to wear on Thanksgiving.  Alllllllmost. Thanksgiving in my house is not about wearing dresses and tights and nice shoes and curling my hair.  No.  It’s about putting your eatin’-clothes on and vegging out. We don’t eat dinner at 1, or 2, or 3, or 4.  We eat dinner at

My close friend told me the other day that she’s tired of looking at my Instagram because all that’s ever on there is nachos. Oops. I can’t help it though!  Nachos are my most favorite thing on the planet.  I’m pretty sure she was joking.  She loves me.  She’s not a meanie. And then about

La Bomba Nachos

A friend of mine shared this recipe video on my Facebook feed a few weeks ago, and I knew immediately I had to make these nachos. La Bomba Nachos, fools!

Mexican Beef and Rice Casserole

You guys!! I am pretty sure this is the very first recipe that I took creative liberties with – and it’s pretty damn good! Way back in like 2000 or 2001, when I was first learning how to cook, the only cookbook I had was your standard Betty Crocker cookbook.  There was a recipe in

A few years ago, before it became ridiculously popular and was still relatively unheard of, I went strictly Paleo for more than a month (no grains, no sugar, no dairy, no legumes) and saw some serious results in the way I looked and felt.  Paleo was really hard for me to maintain though, because I

I have to tell you guys… I’m a late-blooming foodie. It’s true. I grew up a very picky eater.  We didn’t eat a lot of exotic or fancy food in our house.  Tacos was about as ethnic as it got.  Both my parents worked full time, and with five kids in the house, it was

What’s poutine? This: Aw yeah that’s it.

Roasted Tomato Risotto

Risotto is one of those dishes that intimidates people, and I am not even really sure why.  A few months back, I tried my hand at risotto by making The Pioneer Woman’s //sun-dried tomato risotto//, and it was FABULOUS.  And it was amazingly NOT HARD. I don’t know if you guys know me?  Or if

Oh hai. Welcome to the Slutty Food Blog, where I like to take seemingly boring holiday leftovers and slut them up with a sinful cheese sauce and call it a Kentucky Hot Brown. Seriously though – I know these pictures don’t tell much of the story, but you will just have to trust me on
