French Burgers + French Fries

French Burgers + French Fries @dessertfortwo

I’ve made two grave mistakes in the kitchen lately, and I just can’t help but think another one is right around the corner.  Everything happens in threes, right?  My first mistake was to make that healthy alfredo sauce recipe that uses cauliflower instead of cream.  The recipe has been floating around the internet lately.  Can you say [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Dinner for Two: Easy Chicken Parmesan

Romantic yet easy Chicken Parm for two @dessertfortwo

This sandwich has a soundtrack.  I was styling the shot (oh my gosh, if you’re not a food blogger, can I just tell you how much actually goes into photo styling?  Q-tips, tweezers, the need for 3 hands, etc.)  Sorry, rant over. Anyway, an old Fruit Bats song was playing on my Pandora station, and I [ Click to continue Reading! ]
