On Bruschetta Chicken

Can I just say, after now being in my house for 2 full months, it is SUCH a treat to have the kitchen to myself again. To mess up a little bit here and there (like for this recipe, I made an entire box of orzo pasta when only 1/4 of it would have sufficed…still…

On Baked Feta Cheese

Well, it’s now official!! WE ARE ALL MOVED IN!!! Maybe not so much unpacked just quite yet, but we’re working on it (slowly, but surely). The fun bit is that my folks are coming for a quick visit to check out the place, the neighborhood, and help us get all the more settled in (while…

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 Copy Cat Chipotle Burrito Bowl

I, like many, enjoy a meal from Chipotle every once in a while, but as I was home and wanting to make take out in my own kitchen, I thought, there has to be a way to make Chipotle at home. And, of course, there is! Sure, it’s not IDENTICAL, but we got pretty darn close!…

On Bruschetta Bananza!

About two weeks ago, Alex & I changed up the game plan because of the warmer weather and decided to make a couple different bruschetta’s as part of a delicious and fairly light Sunday lunch/dinner! What a way to spend a Sunday afternoon! Not to mention that Frankie & I spent the evening on our porch…

On Chicken & Rice

Because sometimes, one-pot meals are exactly what you need at the end of a long day, rainy day, cold/snow day, or even sick day! And I’m not kidding about that either! This is literally one of those put everything in the pot, let it simmer for a bit, then stuff your face with its hearty…

On Sloppy Joes!

I know we all just got done stuffing our faces and bellies with delicious Thanksgiving food (#allthegravy), but I recently shared this recipe with a coworker, and she loved it, so I thought, okay, we’re already getting overly full, so what’s another filling recipe for those post-feast days, or for whenever something gooey and messy…

On French Onion Toast & Cowboy Chili

Recently, I’ve been asked a few times about how I handle dishes that I didn’t like or wouldn’t make again. These could have been dishes that either just turned out bad (because not every recipe out there is going to work out the way it says it will) or they just didn’t suit mine or…

On Quick Bruschetta

Holy smokes! It’s been a crazy couple of weeks, and my apologies for not posting sooner! I’ve been cooking and photographing, and attempting to write up posts and edit my photos, but then I get distracted with packing because we are moving at the end of the month! I know that’s a ways away, but this…

On Improvised Mexican Pizzas

It’s Friday night, it was a particularly long week, and I decided that cooking was not specifically on my radar, at least nothing complicated. But looking in my fridge, I notice left over chicken breasts (the kind that are individually packaged are my favorite so I’m not pressured to use an entire package in one…

On Saturday Morning Biscuits & Breakfast In General

Last Saturday was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! I mean, it was dress and no sweater weather at a balmy sixty degrees! So what better way to spend the day enjoying some cloudless sunshine than with a trip to the park to run out the pup. He chased the ball, found another dog to play with, took a…
