Lemon Spinach Pasta

Lemon Spinach Pasta with Sun Dried Tomatoes

Just because it’s unofficially summer doesn’t mean pasta is off the menu. Nope, it just means instead of heavier comforting pastas like Crock Pot Bolognese, I’m reaching for light pasta dishes like this Lemon Spinach Pasta with Sun Dried Tomatoes. This is one of those perfect pasta dishes that feels fancy but is really not….

Puff Pastry Caprese Cups

Puff Pastry Caprese Cups

I have a serious thing for caprese. Really, I love all things caprese like fried mozzarella caprese salad. I even love caprese so much that we had it at our wedding a million years ago. Actually that’s not true. Our wedding was 11 years ago. Not a million. Just feels like a million. You know…

Siracha Lime Chicken Salad

Siracha Lime Chicken Salad

Siracha Lime Chicken Salad Have you jumped onto the Siracha bandwagon yet? It’s for sure a thing. A delicious thing. Siracha has to be one of my favorite flavors.

Pasta with White Beans

Pasta with White Beans

This pasta with white bean sauce is one of the ultimate comfort food dishes for me. I know I have told you all before that my Italian grandma made tons of things like lasagna and twice baked potatoes all the time growing up. Those dishes were sort of special occasion food, but this pasta with…

Gluten Free Banana Bread Waffles

Banana Bread Waffles

My husband is the chief breakfast maker around here. You can find him on a Saturday or Sunday morning flipping pancakes or making waffles. I always offer to help, but am always shot down. Who am I to argue with that? So when he started playing with a recipe for banana bread waffles, I was…

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…

Easy Roasted Carrot Soup

Easy Roasted Carrot Soup

Easy Roasted Carrot Soup To say it’s been one of those weeks is an understatement and a half. Along with the normal insanity that comes with raising a very energetic 2 year old that hasn’t quite figured out that diving off the couch is generally frowned upon and working from home, we had a pipe…

Easter Bunny Bark

Easter Bunny Bark

Easter Bunny Bark My mind is a curious place. It’s not exactly dark and twisted. Nope, instead it’s full of glitter and fluff and sprinkles. In my mind, it’s still Christmastime even though Easter is faster approaching and it’s FINALLY spring. FINALLY. But still my house exists in a state of Christmas. I know, I…

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…
