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…

Cooking with Coworkers: On Pasta Carbonara

Once again, I’m sharing one fo the recipes from our weekly cooking sessions with the coworkers from my day job! Now, if you know anything about me, you know that I don’t eat eggy things. Mixed in, we’re all good, but if it’s cooked eggs mixed in, eh, I’d rather not. I just don’t like…

On Gingerbread Sheet Cake & Christmas

It’s that time of year, when we pull out our most festive threads, put up & decorate the tree (which I think Frankie did a TERRIFIC job of doing this year), and deck our home in Christmas lights and ornaments in all the vases I almost never put any flowers into. Let’s just say, I am…

On Bolognese (from Scratch)

I think that the key to the best bolognese sauce all starts with your meat. For real. And honestly, for any of my ground meat-centric meals, I try really hard to stay away from just one kind of meat. I like the way flavors just intensify when you combine meats: beef with a little pork,…

On THE Mac & Cheese

I’m going to keep this short & sweet, but have I ever mentioned that I have an AMAZING Mac & Cheese (from scratch) recipe? Because I do. It’s rich, it’s decedent, it’s cheesey, and it’s gobsmackin’ delicious! And if you don’t believe me, then you should just try my very own “THE” Mac & Cheese…
