Away From Home Cooking with Extended Stay America

When we're traveling with Family, Friends, or even on Business, we can't wait to go back to our hotel room at the end of a long day to relax and re-charge. But what to do for dinner? Just ask Lauren Wyler, the winner of Extended Stay America's 'Away From Home Cooking' contest.

A Deliciously Haunted Halloween Party

Halloween is one of our favorite holidays here at Real Food Real Kitchens. We wanted to go all out this year and have our dream Halloween party that was fun, filled with delicious food and treats, and just scary enough to have a little spooky-ness follow us home that night. So if you are looking for some great Halloween recipes and party ideas, we got you covered here.

Lettuce Wraps with Roast Pork at the Epcot Food & Wine Festival

We love trying traditional dishes from all over the world! That is why we love when the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival comes around each year... we get a worldly taste experience all month long. You can find these Kalua Pork Sliders in the South Korea Marketplace.

Bacon Cheeseburger Mac n' Cheese

We love the Fall and all of the great comfort food recipes that come with it. We also love this time a year because the New York City Wine and Food Festival is right around the corner and it is full of warm and comforting dishes like this bacon cheeseburger mac n' cheese by Ronzoni.

Super Simple Snacking with Apples

Super simple snacking are our three favorite words to live by in the afternoons. We took the always delicious concept of a caramel apple, and turned it in to a personalized treat that everyone will enjoy. You can pick your own dip and top these apple slices with an endless combination of healthy toppings.

Waffle Grilled Cheese with...

We love the diversity of a grilled sandwich. You can make them your own by putting on any of your favorite sandwich ingredients. Making a grilled sandwich using whole wheat waffles makes it simple, fun, and is a crispier alternative to normal sandwich bread. Waffles also hold a lot more deliciousness in those nooks and crannies.

Grilled Snapper and Mahi Mahi with Citrus Avocado Salsa

We love to have a fresh and light alternative on the menu when grilling out or baking at home, so our at home cooking enthusiast Julie shared this amazing grilled Snapper and Mahi Mahi with citrus avocado salsa recipe with us. We can't thank her enough!

Broccoli Cheese Bites

These bite sized snacks are inspired by our 'New England Comfort Food' episode of Real Food Real Kitchens. Guest Kevin's Mom would make cauliflower cheese bites in order to get him to eat his vegetables. It obviously worked well because to this day he still makes them along with many other traditional family dishes.

Simple Snacking with Graham Crackers

Snacking is one of our favorite things to do throughout the day. You will typically find us eating many small bites throughout the day rather than three main meals. For this reason being creative with snack creation is essential! We at least re-imagine traditional snacks like we did with this simple graham cracker snack.

Mozzarella and Tomato Skewers - salad on a stick

A Caprese salad is one of our all time favorite salads. It's fresh, vibrant, flavorful, and light, and super simple to make. We could eat this triple layered salad almost everyday for lunch if we had to so we created this back to school version on skewers to also make it a fun salad to eat. 

Tofu Scramble in a Hurry

Growing up with a picky eater in the house, was always a challenge for my Mother. I hated eggs! So as a replacement for eggs in the morning, my Mom began making a tofu scramble for me. Here is a version of that recipe my Mom used to make... simple and delicious and full of spice! 

Simple BBQ Chicken Lunch

Stretching the food budget each month is a must for most families, so finding simple and creative ways to use up those leftovers is important! We took our leftover roasted chicken and made these 2-minute BBQ chicken sandwiches.
