Barbecue Chicken Gumbo

On my glorious days off with my little man, I often watch some daytime television…yes, I’ll admit it.  I love me some Kelly & Michael.  So sometimes, I just keep it on that channel throughout the morning and do my thing around the house, checking in every so often.  Right around Thanksgiving, I saw an […]

Grilled Corn & Black Bean Salad

This summer salad is fresh and delicious and goes perfectly with so many different dishes.  I served it with these yummy peach, bacon & arugula sandwiches and ate the remainder for lunch all by itself.  I think it would be great with some grilled chicken or alongside some tacos or fajitas.  It comes together quickly […]

Summer Pasta with Ricotta, Pancetta & Peas

Peanut Noodles with Edamame & Chicken

I have to say that one of my faults in the kitchen is that I rarely venture out from my comfort zone.  I usually stick with Italian, Mexican and maybe French cuisine.  I have always been hesitant to venture into the more Eastern flavors.  So when I came across this easy Asian inspired noodle dish […]

The Lighter Side of Chicken Parm

As far as I’m concerned, there aren’t many people out there who don’t love a big dish for chicken parm…all that yummy cheese and sauce – delish!  I am always hesitant to order it out at restaurants because it tends to be a bit more heavy than I prefer (think lots of breading, fried in […]

Quesadilla Casserole

When it comes to an easy, fast weeknight meal, this Quesadilla Casserole really hits the spot.  Most of the ingredients are things I typically have in my pantry/fridge or are easy enough to mindlessly pick up on my way home.  The leftovers are amazing as well, so I suggest making the full recipe even if […]

Baking lessons & the best sandwich ever

After several busy weeks and being sick for 10 days, I vowed to spend the weekend relaxing and doing things around the apartment. So when my friend Susan emailed and asked if we could get together and if she could get a baking lesson for red velvet cupcakes, I was thrilled.  She came over and […]

Pasta Deliciousness

I am convinced that there is nothing better at the end of a long, hard day than a yummy bowl of pasta…yes, sometimes I like to eat my feelings, and only carbs will do! Today was one of those days where I wondered “why, oh why did I choose to teach middle school?!”  The kids […]
