On Mamaw’s Heavenly Rice

While Frankie & I were enjoying our time in Buffalo, we decided to have an early Thanksgiving because my mom decided that, especially this year, if you can’t celebrate with everyone on the day, who cares? Pick a day that works for all, and call it Thanksgiving since being with family and expressing your gratitude…

Does anyone remember the white cheddar broccoli cheese soup at Cheesecake Factory? No? Maybe? I mean…I sure do, and that was one of my absolute FAVORITE soups, but come on, let’s be real. Who doesn’t like Broccoli Cheese Soup!?!? That’s what I thought! Well, again (I swear, my coworkers are on fire with this cooking…

Happy November everyone! Nothing makes me crave pasta and cheese more than colder weather, and in honor of the continued effort of the cooking initiative at work, below is a recipe I have adapted for you all to enjoy! I also won’t ignore the fact that today is Election Day, but don’t worry, I am…

On Turkey Greek Meatballs

Do you know what I think has been one of the best things to come out of quarantine and COVID? The fact that I have had the incredible opportunity to work remotely and spend WAY more time with my family in Buffalo at the same time (since my mom is busy doing her own things, …

On Spanish Paella !!!

I have been dying to try Paella for a few months now, but because it was so hot this summer, it was hard to get the motivation to try it out. However, with the weather turning cold, I wanted to make something quick, easy, and filling and decided to try out a new recipe! Plus,…

On French Onion Chicken

In hindsight I wish I hadn’t piled all of the chicken on top of the onions…maybe only 4 of them on top would have looked nicer, BUT that all said, this dish was hearty and filling and just tender as get all! Braised boneless chicken thighs are just THE BEST! Oh, also, I think next…

On Sunday Sausage Hashbrowns

If you read through Frankie’s and my Whole30 experience a couple years ago, you probably remember seeing the hashbrowns a few times on the weekends. This really is a great, guilty-free go-to weekend brunch meal that satisfies every craving you could have! By mixing in your own seasoning, you’re already cutting out added sugars, which…

I can’t help it, but once again, I’m sharing one fo the recipes from our weekly cooking sessions with the coworkers from my day job, and since then, I have made this TWICE – SO GOOD!!! Now, if you know anything about me, you know that I don’t eat eggy things. Mixed in, we’re all…

On Mediterranean Chicken (Cooking with Alex)

HAPPY TUESDAY!!! I hope that everyone had a love Labor Day weekend!! I know I spent part of it with mon Tuggers (we went to a corgi brunch on Sunday, which was DELIGHTFUL) and spent a good portion of it with Franklin just enjoying a slow weekend of relaxing (plus the new Tony Hawk for…

On Chocolate Chip Cookies (The Remake)

I’m reposting this cookie recipe, which I just made recently for the two men while we were in-law-less this week, and I realized…I may have misprinted the recipe and needed to redig for it. SO I DID and I was WAY off…so I have adjusted the recipe and NOW it should be correct. Man oh…

On Mini Big Macs

Once again, on a weekend where rain is pouring down, our need for fast food without the risk of exposure came upon us again. And while, yes, a normal burger would be just fine, the hubby was craving a Big Mac, and I was looking to avoid overeating, so we compromised and made them MINI!!!…
