On Bolognese (from Scratch)

2021 UPDATE: So I know before I said any secondary meat you’d like (or all beef if you’re not the biggest fan of mixing), but I just did a round with Italian Sausage (leftover from some other meals I was working on) and it was BOMB. By far the best bolognese according to Frankie, and…

On Italian Drunken Noodles

I know that this is usually made with pappardelle, but for some reason I just don’t like the way the pappardelle I’ve purchased from the store cooks up. It’s sticky and gummy…so until I figure out what the heck is going on (or just say screw it and make my own), I have turned to…

On Roasted Garlic Tomato Soup

Want to know what my absolute favorite kitchen utensil is right now? The KitchenAid Shredding attachment – it does course shreds, fine shreds, and slices. It makes grating cheese, carrots, and cucumbers a legitimate breeze, and I don’t know how I left it in the box for as long as I did!!!! In fact, it…

On Roasted Red Pepper & Goats Cheese Pasta

Hi Everyone! After doing recipes with my coworkers for over a year now, this recipe is another doozy of a winner! ABSOLUTELY delicious in every way, and super easy to whip up! Loved it with the farfalle pasta as well! I don’t really have much more to say except, definitely serve with garlic bread and…

On Garlic Butter Chicken

Hello Readers! Man oh man, this month is flying by and I’m so very excited that soon we will be moving into our home! March 26th is the move in date, and as a result, I’ve had to put cookie baking on a back burner until we’re all moved in and unpacked. However, April will…

On Instant Pot Asian Pulled Pork

I won’t lie, I am definitely trying to do more things with the Instant Pot where I can! And when you have a freezer full of various kinds of meat, you have to get creative. SO, one night I pulled out 2 pork roasts and thought, why not shred it? Now, I know roasts are…

On Quick Chicken Makhani (Butter Chicken)

There is a place in Chicago near my office called India House…now, I absolutely LOVE this place beyond words because they have a Chicken Makhani (aka. Creamy Butter Chicken) that is to die for. It is my absolute FAVORITE thing they make, and it’s become the only thing I order (along with maybe some samosa’s…garlic…

On Mississippi Pot Roast & Roasted Carrots

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…

On Artichoke & Spinach Stuffed Shells

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 Shrimp Boil Foil Packets

Adulting is hard. But of course it is…I don’t think anyone has ever woken up and said that being an adult in our current world was easy, especially when you’re part of the world that lives paycheck to paycheck and/or has a bunch of student loans that don’t seem to really go anywhere…the last few…
