#ImprovCookingChallenge: Asparagus and Mushroom Tortellini

Even though Mother Nature can’t seem to decide if it’s going to be Spring or not (our temperatures keep jumping from the 40’s to nearly 80 degrees every couple of days), I’ve decided Spring is here and I’m celebrating it whether or not the weather is on board. Mainly this […]

Summertime Pasta Salad

There are a lot of condiments and foods that I love and Tom won’t come anywhere near them. One of the items on that list is cold pasta salad. He will eat cooked pasta. He will eat veggies pureed into a sauce, but he will not eat cold veggies (or […]

Recipe Swap: Shrimp Scampi

Recipe swap time again! The category for this swap was Celebrity recipes. It was actually pretty hard for me to pick out a recipe to submit. I didn’t realize that I rarely blog any recipes made by celebrities anymore. Luckily though, I do have a few on here. For this […]

Chicken and Pasta with Asiago Cream Sauce

As I mentioned in a previous post, Tom and I are cheese and cracker type of people and we quickly found out that asiago cheese just isn’t a cheese we’re willing to eat alone on a cracker. I didn’t want to throw away the cheese so I began searching for […]
