Braided Spaghetti Bread

I totally need to go to the grocery store. Big time. I've been stalling for days. I don't know why. Maybe because in the summer all I want to eat is fruit. Or maybe I just needed something to procrastinate about that would make me actually fold the 5 loads of clean laundry sitting on… Continue reading Braided Spaghetti Bread

You can make breadsticks that taste just like your favorite unlimited basket at the Olive Garden. It's true. And, it is not hard. Really, it is too easy. Cause, I… Continue reading Copycat Olive Garden Breadsticks

English Muffin Pizzas

These little pizzas will forever remind me of slumber parties. Growing up, this was the standard dinner fare for all things involving a gaggle of giggling girls in their jammies (I wish jammies started with a "g"). You can make dozens at a time and everyone can pick their favorite toppings. It is awesome when… Continue reading English Muffin Pizzas

Lightened Chicken Divan With Quinoa

Quinoa is totally the cool kid in school right now. The topic of every conversation. Exotic. Mysterious. You aren't sure exactly how to pronounce their name. Ok, ok...you totally do know how. But I didn't. I had an entire conversation calling it "qwi-no-ah". Then my sister set me straight. She's been all over this stuff… Continue reading Lightened Chicken Divan With Quinoa

Baked Honey Mustard Chicken

Quick. Easy. Delicious. These are the words I like when doing a weekday dinner. This moist delicious chicken is all three. I make it all the time. It's one of my go-to "I don't really feel like cooking tonight" meals. Throw it in a dish, dump sauce over it and done. No chopping, no prep… Continue reading Baked Honey Mustard Chicken

Marvelous Marinade

It's grilling season! Woo-hoo! This tasty marinade is quick and easy and will turn just about any cut of meat into a tender, flavorful mouth party. I know, it's supposed to be meatless Monday. And obviously that's a picture of steak. Be patient. I love to soak some big chunks of steak and chicken in… Continue reading Marvelous Marinade

Buffalo Chicken Empanadas

Honestly? These are kind of like homemade hot pockets. At least that's what the hubby tells me. I've never personally had a hot pocket. Just add it to the list of things "all" children of the 80's have eaten that I haven't. Also included are pop tarts & hamburger helper. What can I say? My… Continue reading Buffalo Chicken Empanadas

Spinach & Cheese Tortellini

Throw dinner together tonight with this quick and easy tortellini dish. Once a week I make something without meat in it. This dish has lots of fresh and filling vegetables wrapped in a creamy sauce with rich cheesy tortellini. It would be easy to throw some chicken into if you really can't give up your… Continue reading Spinach & Cheese Tortellini

Chicken Parmesan Bake

Chicken Parmesan is my absolute favorite meal. While growing up I got to pick my birthday meal and chicken parm was my choice every single year. I never grow tired of it. It is perfection. Juicy chicken wrapped in crispy breading all smothered in rich marinara sauce and drenched with melty cheese - oh I… Continue reading Chicken Parmesan Bake

Cheater Churros

Easiest recipe ever. Perfect as a backup dessert during a dinner party I recently had. One of my guests couldn't eat the main attraction (which was very sad because the chocoflan was incredible). So, I made these quick and easy churros for him. A quick bake, dunk in some butter and a roll in cinnamon… Continue reading Cheater Churros
