Feast and Merriment is a lifestyle. It brings joy, laughter and learning to life- and of course really great food!  This website is all about my culinary adventures in hopes to inspire Feast and Merriment in your life! Cheers!

A few of my favorite recipes...

Slow Roasted Beef Tenderloin

The answer to your next special occasion meal is Ina Garten’s Slow Roasted Filet of Beef. It is the easiest dish you will ever make and is sure to impress even the most critical of guests.

Rustic Blueberry Crostata

With only a few ingredients, this rustic blueberry tart is easy, delicious, and impressive enough for any occasion.

The Ultimate Spicy Crab Dip

This hot crab dip is packed with heat from pickled jalapeños and spicy jack cheese and loaded with tons of crab meat. It’s easy to make and will elevate your party to the next level.

Always remember the golden rule… You can put the salt in, but you can’t take the salt out.

homemade gifts from the kitchen

In today’s world where everything can be delivered by Amazon in two days or less, it’s hard to find the perfect gift for someone. But there is one thing that you can’t find on Amazon or in the shops and that is something homemade from your own hands, in your own kitchen. Taking the time to make something special for someone in your life is the greatest gift you can give. Here are some of my favorite homemade food gifts that I like to make and give.

The Perfect Pizzelle

Pizzelles are an classic Italian cookie similar in flavor to a Belgium waffle, but super thin and crispy, and insanely delicious!

We be Jammin’

Toast and Jam- a simple pleasure. You can save a ton of money and cut out all the unnecessary preservatives when you make own jam.

Fresh Basil Pesto

Basil pesto is incredibly easy to make and delicious! It freezes remarkably well so you can enjoy basil’s herbaceous flavor for months after the summer growing season is done.
