On French Bistro Salad

On Seared Scallops with Pea and Pesto Orzo

Dear readers, SEAFOOD DOUBLE FEATURE!!! That’s right, you get TWO recipes this week because I was in over my head and didn’t get my act completely together.

On Roasted Asparagus, Corn, and Spinach Salad

Dear readers, As a follow up to the last post, I have another vegan/veggie friendly salad for your viewing and eating pleasure!

On Seared Duck Breasts and Butternut Squash Risotto

Dear readers, It’s not often that I get fancy, but when I do, I go ALL OUT! The reason for going all out on fancy dining? Fun-employment! In between jobs in late February, I gave myself 2 weekdays to do a) nothing, b) sleep, c) nothing, d) bake (so not nothing, lol), and e) cook…

On Creamed Corn & Potato Chowder

Dear readers, I know it’s spring time, but I have ANOTHER SOUP!! I don’t know why, but I have been seriously soup obsessed, and given a lot of times I make a couple new things every week, we’re just on backlog now. This one was really easy to make, can be totally vegetarian (skip the…

On Broccoli Cheese Soup

Dear readers, ANOTHER SOUP!! I hope you’re as excited as I am because this one, this is a GEM of a recipe! Okay, so some background: So as some of you may (or may not) know, my family lives in Buffalo and as a result, we are big Bills fans! (Granted, we’re still a little…

On Butter Cajun Shrimp & Veggies

Dear readers, What a couple of months readers…in case you’re not following me on Instagram, or just didn’t know in general, I changed jobs at the beginning of the month! My day job is in legal marketing, so I said goodbye to the firm I joined the month following my wedding in 2018, to join…

On the Tucci Table (A Cookbook Review in Progress)

Dear readers, Over Christmas, I was very thoughtfully gifted The Tucci Table cookbook, and so I of course got right to work in making a handful of recipes this past week!

On the Easiest Chicken Fiesta Salad

Dear readers, Happy New Year! The past two weeks Frankie & I (and Floyd) were enjoying the very snowy mountains of Breckinridge, Colorado with Frankie’s family.

On Potato and Roasted Leek Soup with Bacon

Dear readers, Merry Belated Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a Happy New Year!

Where is Tuggs you ask?…

On Instant Pot Chicken & Dumplings

Dear readers, What a week!! Over the weekend, after a year off due to all things COVID (as you do when you value the health and safety of your friends, family, and self) we actually held our annual Christmas Party! It was so nice, and in truth, I really missed hosting it – we don’t…
