Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Boats

Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Boats

After a weekend of pure and utter indulgence…well, actually, more like a month-long binge of indulgent eating (hello Key Lime Pies! and Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño), I decided to clean up my act a little bit. Lucky for me the man of the house also decided to […]

Pasta Salad

Pasta Salad

Pasta salad is one of my favorite summer recipes. It’s always a sign that summer is here when my daughter and I whip up a big batch. And it’s about as close to vegan as I get with my meals….but I don’t buy vegan dressing so […]

Chicken Alfredo

Chicken Alfredo

Every once in a while I will come across a meal that will fill up my husband for at least 2 hours. This Alfredo recipe, happens to be that meal. Since he was blessed with a metabolism super models only dream of, he can literally […]

Italian Chicken on Spaghetti

Italian Chicken on Spaghetti

I adore Italian food. I would say “who doesn’t?”, but my husband doesn’t, that’s who. Too bad for him I’m the cook of the house, so we eat Italian-ish food at least once a week, if not more. If you couldn’t already tell, I’m kind of […]

Manuka Honey Sriracha Tofu

Manuka Honey Sriracha Tofu

I have been OBSESSED with tofu recently. It’s definitely a texture thing, I don’t know what it is about the pillowy soft squares, but I just could eat them all day long. Since I haven’t really cooked with tofu much, I have been scouring the […]

Split Pea Soup With Homemade Ham Stock

Split Pea Soup With Homemade Ham Stock

One of my favorite things to make in the winter and spring is soup. When the weather turns to bitter cold, nothing makes a house more cozy than a big pot of soup simmering for hours on a stovetop. Not only do I love making soup, but […]

Simple Seafood Pasta

Simple Seafood Pasta

On Monday I made my weekly trek to Trader Joe’s. Alas, we only have one store in a 150 mile radius. Thanks for that Michigan. Anyway, since the only store is still 30 miles away, I tend to make it there once a week or […]

Lasagna

Lasagna

Some days call for a substantial dish of noodles, meat, and a hearty red sauce swimming in cheese. On those days look no further than this lasagna recipe. This dish is layers full of different flavors and textures that will make your taste buds come […]

Mushroom & Parmesan Risotto

Mushroom & Parmesan Risotto

Risotto is a dish that I always saw on cooking shows or ordered in restaurants, but never dreamed of making at home. On “Chopped” it is almost taboo to make, considering chefs try to make it in 20 minutes and it always takes longer. On […]

Balsamic Roasted Cauliflower

Balsamic Roasted Cauliflower

Cauliflower is having a moment! It’s everywhere these days. Let’s be honest, it is really taking up everyone’s Instagram feed. Can’t say that we saw this one coming. It’s now disguising itself as a “rice”. It’s shoving itself into the ever-too-cool-for-school smoothie world. And yes, it is […]
