Gluten Free Lasagna

Gluten Free Lasagna

It is time. You can’t be a food blogger that grew up with an Italian grandma and not have a thing for lasagna. Actually, you can’t have a drop of Italian blood and not have a thing for lasagna. It’s like a law that lasagna appears on the table of almost every Italian American holiday…

Slow Cooker Mexican Chicken Soup

Slow Cooker Mexican Chicken Soup

Slow Cooker Mexican Chicken Soup Is it just me or was this winter really weird? Like really, really weird. I’ve worn flip flops and lamented the fact that I haven’t had my toenails done since my best friend got married last July. Because seriously, I live in the Northeast. My feet should be firmly buried…

Sometimes I just feel like a salad. I need it to to balance out things like no bake chocolate cheesecake or brown butter lobster pasta. Let me tell you, this blood orange salad is a real winner.

Shrimp Risotto with Garlicky Kale

I go on serious food kicks. This month I’m all about risotto. I already made a fab crab risotto, but did I stop there like a normal person? Nope. I had to go make shrimp risotto with garlicky kale. I love risotto but I seriously… Whenever I think about risotto, the first thing I think…

Blood Orange Roast Chicken

Did you ever make food and think to yourself, “Wow! It’s a shame I’m not having a dinner party right now?” Well that’s what I thought as I was eating my blood orange roast chicken.

Brown Butter Lobster Pasta

Brown Butter Lobster Pasta

You know how some women get really excited when shoes or purses are on sale? I’m not like that. Shoes and purses are not my jam. But you know what gets me going? When good food like lobster tail goes on sale. Because then I can make brown butter lobster pasta, and all is right…

Cheesy Chicken Ziti Skillet

Cheesy Chicken Ziti Skillet

Chicken Parmesan is one of my favorite foods. Cheesy, carby, saucey. What’s not to love? Well the prep time mainly. This cheesy chicken ziti skillet has all the flavors of chicken Parmesan with like half the prep. I wish I had been this innovative in college. My junior and senior year in school, I lived…

Kale Pesto Pizza

Kale Pesto Pizza

So, I’m trying to get healthier. I know, typical January thing. But I want to get healthier and still eat pizza. Seems legit right? And somewhat impossible. But have you met kale pesto pizza? Oh yes, kale pesto pizza is the answer. Do you know how many veggies this pizza packs? A whole lot. It’s…

Buffalo Chicken Sweet Potato Cheese Fries

Buffalo Chicken Sweet Potato Cheese Fries

Buffalo Chicken Sweet Potato Cheese Fries I have a really weird 2 year old. Don’t get me wrong, she’s the bee’s knees and the absolute love of my life.

Homemade Slow Cooker Chicken Soup

Homemade Slow Cooker Chicken Soup

Homemade Slow Cooker Chicken Soup Something I didn’t expect about parenthood: my toddler gets us sick all and keeps up sick all winter long. I don’t know how. She doesn’t go to daycare but she has the amazing talent for getting colds and runny noses, dubbed as the Goose germs. Last year was worse than…

Parmesan Balsamic Chicken and Brussel Sprouts Skillet

This Parmesan Balsamic Chicken and Brussel Sprouts Skillet is January food. But better. You know about January food right?

Easy Thai Chickpea Curry Ohhhh Thai food. How I love you. Seriously, Thai food, you are better than so many good things… better than wine, better than chocolate, and dare I say it sometimes even better than coffee? If I had made way about it, I’d eat Thai food from my favorite Thai restaurant at…

Vegetable Soup with Quinoa

Vegetable Soup with Quinoa

Weird but true: growing up vegetable soup was one of my favorite foods. I mean, what little kid wants to eat veggie soup when they could be noshing on things like chicken nuggets? Apparently, me. And this vegetable soup with quinoa is a take on my childhood favorite. My Nana lived with us while I…

Healthy Loaded Sweet Potato Fries

Healthy Loaded Sweet Potato Fries

Healthy Loaded Sweet Potato Fries The glitter has settled from the holiday season. There are no more sprinkles to put on top of sinful salted caramel chocolate chip butter bars. In fact, I’m swearing off cookie bars for a little while. You know too much of a good thing and all that. Though, I ask…

Christmas Shrimp Scampi with Red Peppers and Asparagus

Christmas Shrimp Scampi

One of the best parts of growing up with an Italian influence was Christmas eve food. In Italy, it’s traditional to celebrate Christmas with the Feast of the Fish. The dishes are pretty intense. Scungili (eel- yuck!) is a big one in some parts of Italy. Rather, my mom took the tradition she grew up…
