spaghetti and meatballs

spaghetti and meatballs | ahappyfooddance.comI have been CRAVING spaghetti and meatballs lately – not the spaghetti and meatballs that you get in a restaurant but my mom’s spaghetti and meatballs.  Basically, the best spaghetti and meatballs EVAH!

My mom is one hell of a cook.  A lot of my classic recipes on here are ones that I grew up with and come straight from her, usually by way of a phone call requesting her to sit down and read me the ENTIRE recipe, often repeating lines and ingredients, while I jot it down.

matcha green tea latte brownies

matcha green tea latte brownies | ahappyfooddance.comI never really jumped on the matcha craze (says the person that is now telling you about these matcha green tea latte brownies!).  But before these brownies I don’t think I’ve even had a matcha latte.  I recently had a matcha Kit Kat, but only because my boss brought them back from Japan.  Really…. I’m trying to rack my brain for match experiences, and I think that might be it.

super cinnamon and raisin bagels

super cinnamon and raisin bagels | ahappyfooddance.comIs there any better breakfast than a freshly toasted bagel slathered with cream cheese?!  Nope… not in my book.  And from the parking garage to my office there is a Noah’s Bagel and there are many days when I pop in for one.

I go through spurts of what bagel I’m feeling that week… a couple weeks back it was a asiago bagel with veggie cream cheese, when I’m feeling crazy I get a jalapeno cheese bagel with onion and chive cream cheese.  But lately I’ve been totally feeling just a good, old fashioned cinnamon and raisin bagel with good coat of plain cream cheese.
