Lunch at Bill’s Restaurant Today was one of those days that you follow through on a recommendation from a friend.  Wednesdays are usually my burger, fry and milkshake days but today I decided to stop by Bill’s Restaurant and shake up my normal lunch routine. Bill’s restaurant is located in the Rushden Lakes shopping district and boasts an amazing view of a lake with swans. The inside of Bill’s is so inviting with its shabby chic decor.  I loved looking around at the walls while I ate. Bill’s has a lunch and dinner menu to include a separate vegetarian menu. Currently they are celebr ..read more

Homemade Southern Sausage Gravy

Homemade Southern Sausage Gravy Ever craved your grandmother’s southern cooking, but you never got her secret recipe? I remember as a child, my grandmother would cook us breakfast almost every morning before school. Sometimes it was cream of wheat, sometimes it was eggs, rice and bacon, and sometimes it was biscuits and gravy. Those homemade biscuits and gravy stuck with me because I considered it an art to make homemade southern sausage gravy. I spent a lot of time in the kitchen with my grandmother, breakfast was not usually one of those times (I mean a girl has to get her beauty rest). Ther ..read more

5 Delicious Mother's Day Brunch Ideas

Mother’s Day Thinking of making breakfast or brunch in bed for Mother’s Day but not sure what to make? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. I know for many, Mother’s Day is quickly approaching and for some the tradition of going out to eat may not be an option this year. Did you know that Anna Jarvis, who is often referred to as the founder of Mother’s Day was against commercialization.  Celebrating with elaborate gifts isn’t the only way to go. I can confidently say that sometimes moms (myself included) appreciate having not to cook and just relaxing.  So this Mother’s Day, grab the k ..read more

Irresistible Banana Foster Pancakes

Have you ever had a food that just screams nostalgia?  That is what happens every time these irresistible banana foster pancakes come to mind. The first time I was introduced to Banana foster pancakes was in the hospital after I delivered my second daughter Sicily.  Those banana foster pancakes were single handily the most amazing meal I had ever eaten (or at least that’s how it felt) and most certainly the best hospital food I’d ever tasted. That year in particular, my daughter was born 3 days before Mother’s Day.  When we returned home from the hospital, my husband along with ..read more

Sticky Smoky Pork Belly Recipe

Pork Belly This sticky smoky pork belly recipe is everything y’all.  If you are anything like me, then you enjoy eating pork from time to time.  I grew up eating bacon, ribs, heck even chitterlings for that matter.  As far as my memories serves me, I do not recall eating “pork belly”.  Even as I type this, the only thing that I could compare it to is what we call Fat Back.  A quick google search and voila!  They are pretty similar but the do come from different cuts of the pig.  Pork belly has some meat and is close to the area where bacon comes from.  F ..read more

I know I am not the only one who feels they were completing thrown into being a working from home mom WFHM this past week. I give mad props to SAHM’s (I did my stent for a hot second) and homeschooling parents. Part of me feels like this is a social experiment to see how well I can balance working from home, homeschooling, being a mom and wife. My days have officially turned into the longest days ever and I’m not getting paid overtime. The Coronavirus pandemic has turned not only our lives, but the entire world upside down. Sociology 101 couldn’t prepare me for what lies ahead. For the unseeab ..read more

Bacon and Shrimp Linguini Toss

This bacon and shrimp linguini toss has been a weeknight staple in my house for nearly a decade.  It has brought many smiles, full bellies and happy plates and is still the most requested pasta dish in my household.  You know you’ve got a winner when picky two year old’s clean their plates and ask for seconds and thirds. Now I wouldn’t say it is the healthiest when you think about the bacon and cheese but it definitely worth a cheat day if you are going on a low carb diet. I have made many variations of this linguini toss, bacon no bacon, shrimp, chicken you name it, I’ve tried it ..read more

Sticks N Sushi Coming from America where there are a plethora of sushi restaurants to England where you really have to search requires some patience. Sushi is just one of those meals that it has to be right or it’s wrong. After a less then pleasant experience the last time I had sushi I must admit I was skeptical. My husband gave me two choices for my birthday dinner and I had heard good reviews about Sticks N Sushi so I pushed skepticism aside and decided what the hell why not. First things first, I love vibe of Sticks N Sushi. It is a complete upscale, date night, high class bar type of vibe ..read more

Las Iguanas Restaurant | Lunch

I’ve learned that sometimes when things don’t as planned it can actually work out. While in Cambridge, on a girls day out trip we decided on an impromptu lunch at an Italian spot. Seeing as how we had not made reservations a wait of 30 – 45 minutes seemed reasonable for a party of 5. However, since we had skipped on breakfast both my girlfriends and I were famished. We walked around the corner and saw Las Iguanas. Our initial plan was to grab some drinks while we waited on our table at the other restaurant. After a quick look at the menu, it was decided we’d be staying put and having lunch at ..read more
