Hello friends!  So, what do ya think?? Pretty fancy schmancy, right?!  If only I had a microphone with a mini soapbox, it would go like this, “I’d like to thank my boyfriend, John, for taking about a month’s time to listen to my qualms, preferences, concerns, and nitpicking regarding the new look of Jill Eats.

By Jillian Bernardini - Jul 10, 2013 - 11:02 AM
Lately, my apartment is hot, like a sauna.  This is without any appliances on, sadly, so I honestly have not had the desire to pour out perspiration all over my stovetop.  With such a busy summer, John and I have been venturing to NJ a bunch for weddings, bridal showers, holiday events, and many more fun activities [cornhole is always a’callin’!].  We have been grilling a bit here and there, so what ...

I know, I know what you’re thinking….oh, here she goes again with her love of citrus in desserts!  Where’s the indulgent chocolate saucy cake recipe testing?  Yes, I love those too…too much my boyfriend can attest.  However, it’s summer!  Desserts should be bright and refreshing, playful even!  This may appear difficult to make, but trust in my whisking skills, it’s ...

Radius: Honoring the ambiance, tasting menus, and the infamous burger. 
By Jillian Bernardini - Jun 30, 2013 - 02:04 PM
Nearby the boyfriend’s office, this restaurant, Radius, unassumingly sat nearby the South Station terminal.  As of this weekend, Radius sadly celebrated its final hurrah, closing their doors late Saturday evening.  Most of Boston heard of these rumors in the late months of winter, and the news was bittersweet.

Here is a profound discovery from developing this recipe: if you are a pea discriminator, you will love these crostini anyway!  High quality Parmigiano Reggiano, verdant olive oil, and a generous amount of garlic almost hide the fact that you are devouring a pea spread.

I’m excited to share this recipe with you because, well, it’s delicious, a little lighter than a traditional bread pudding, and I give you the option of having this for breakfast or dessert [or both]!!  This loaf of cranberry-hard cider bread has been taunting me everytime I opened my fridge.

Summer Defined at Flo’s Clam Shack, RI 
By Jillian Bernardini - Jun 24, 2013 - 05:25 PM
The best way to start off summer in New England is a trip to Flo’s Clam Shack for rustic and memorable local seafood.  With my friend’s summer rental in Newport, RI, I plan to lure him over to Flo’s as much as I can before the season ends!  Addicted by only one trip thus far, the laid back ambiance, cheap beers, and freshness of the food sold me in a heartbeat.

A spring veggie inspired sandwich.  Recipe!
By Jillian Bernardini - Jun 20, 2013 - 03:00 PM
I have a confession to make…I was that rogue child in grade school that secretly got excited for an egg salad sandwich during lunch break.  Creepy, right?  I always appreciated how satiating an egg salad sandwich could be, and all the protein you would need out on the playground.

An Ode to Basil

Growing up in southern NJ, the actual origins for the nickname “Garden State,” my mother based her gardening in categories of aesthetic and utility.  Portulacas around the pool, lilies along the driveway, and potted hibiscus flowers bordered the entire back deck.  Flowers for days, but never a green thumb for edibles.
