This recipe came about in honor of “baby brina” being the size of a pineapple. I have this fun app from Ovia Pregnancy that tells me her size in relation to fruits and vegetables. Of course, I love relating my child to food already. I pray everyday that she is not a pick […]

  Pasta Punttanesca is one of my all time favorite pasta dishes. It is a go to dish any type of night for me. It is the best way to make a regular tomato sauce taste special.I even got Brian into it and became part of my regular pasta rotation. This and shrimp scampi are […]

Marinara sauce is made in my household weekly. There seems to always be a container of it in the refrigerator. To me, making marinara sauce is as routine as pouring milk into cereal. I barely even considered it a “recipe.” Until I met my husband, I didn’t think making marinara was anything out of the […]

Goat cheese and Parmesan cheese create a tangy bechamel type sauce. This sauce is added to the butternut squash mixture packing a punch in every bite. My sister Katie loves […]

Recently, I have been inspired to change things up a bit. That is where Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Strawberry Jalapeno Fruit Spread comes in. […]

The month June is officially upon us! I am always excited when the Farmers Market open up and it makes cooking a whole new adventure. Sometimes I wish I lived in a warmer state so I could have access to them all year round! One of my favorite things to hit the Farmers Market in […]

Most of the time when I am making chicken I am using chicken breasts. I have stayed away from bone in chicken because it seemed no one ever wanted to deal with it. That is, until I realized chicken thighs can be the key to plenty of easy weeknight meals. If done right they are […]

Lasagna is one of my favorite dishes to make. Adding the spinach and sausage to this recipe elevates it. The sausage makes the meat lovers in the family happy. The spinach gets in that little bit of green which is always a positive. There is always an extra person at my house. Every Sunday there […]
