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 […]

Fajita Chicken Bowl

Do you ever have a recipe idea pop into your head that persistently hangs out and pops up into the most random thoughts until you finally create it? That’s what happened with this recipe. As I’ve mentioned before, I frequently eat the same thing for lunch for an entire week […]

#FoodieExtravaganza: Chicken, Sausage and Shrimp Paella

Happy first day of March! I cannot believe we are already three months in 2017! Time sure is flying by, especially with how crazy busy I’ve been lately. It’s time for me to participate in #FoodieExtravaganza again, a monthly blogging event where each theme comes from a National Food Holiday. […]

Crock Pot Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken pot pie is probably the most classic “comfort food” dish. It’s warm and hearty, full of vegetables and sauce and topped with biscuits. How can you ever go wrong with light and fluffy biscuits? I’d never made it in the crock pot before and was curious to see how […]

Vegetable Christmas Tree

There are a ton of crafty recipes that come out around the holidays. Vegetables, fruits and cheeses are usually the dishes that get turned into something fun for the holidays; like a turkey made from a cheese ball or fruit arranged on a tray to make the shape of a […]

Roast Turkey Pho

In a few days Thanksgiving will have come and gone and you’ll likely be left with a pile of leftover turkey meat. I don’t know about you but I easily get bored of reheating leftovers to the same meals that I once had them. Which is why I decided to […]
