Polpettone, Italian Beef and Veal Meatloaf in Dry Vermouth [Sponsored Post]
Though I’ve made meatloaf plenty of times before, I’ve never even heard of Polpettone, an Italian-style meatloaf, before I started chatting with my friend Sean who goes back and visits his extended family in Italy once a year. My idea of Italian tends to lean more toward the tomato-based heavily ...
These eggnog cookies are easy to make and have a crispy crunchy sugar coating that makes them a great holiday treat! It seems like a cruel joke but when I went to check to see how much eggnog I had left, I noticed one something. The expiration date was December 24th, the day BEFORE Christmas! […]
Holiday Cookbooks 2014 Roundup – Day 3
I feel like I’ve been talking about cookbooks forever here on Eat the Love, but this is my third and final roundup! Part of the reason I’ve had to split my cookbooks up into three different roundups is that sheer amount of awesomeness in all the books that were released this fall. This final ...

Dukka Encrusted Pork Loin [Sponsored Post]
I had never heard of dukka before, an Egyptian spice blend, until a friend of mine mentioned how it was wonderful in hummus. The traditional blend of hazelnuts, coriander and cumin sounded like a great addition to pretty much anything I could add it to and once I was told what dukka was – and […]
Bacon and Leek Arancini (fried risotto balls) [Sponsored Post]
The first time I tasted the Arancini a deep-fried risotto ball filled with cheese I was at a dinner party potluck. A fellow food blogger had brought them and my partner AJ and I immediately gravitated toward them. How I lived my life without them in my life I have no idea because clearly my […] The
