Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato and Chicken Tortellini Bake

Creamy Sundried Tomato and Chicken Tortellini Bake cheese greek yogurt

I know the West Coast is already experiencing spring in the air, but out here in the Great Lakes States and the North East, we are still decidedly parked under Old Man Winter’s thumb. Sunday, we had what was quite literally the coldest day since 1899. Honest to Pete, people. It didn’t get above -5°F…

Honey Sriracha Glazed Chicken Bites

Simple Honey Sriracha Glaze Chicken Bites

There’s a pretty good chance that the recipe I’m sharing today is my kids new favourite party food: Honey Sriracha Glazed Chicken Bites. They are every bit as delicious as they look. On top of just plain looking pretty, they beyond easy to throw together and don’t require anything more exotic than ingredients I can…

Blood Orange Miso Glazed Broiled Salmon

Blood Orange Miso Glazed Salmon from foodiewithfamily.com

The guys and I are BIG fans of fish all year round, but we eat it a lot more regularly during the Lenten season when we -as a family- pass on meat on Fridays. Fish is one of my favourite proteins by virtue of how quickly and easily I can pull together a polished, delicious…

Bacon Jalapeno Meatloaf

Barbecue Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Meatloaf from foodiewithfamily.com

I have a long, love/hate history with meatloaf. I never liked it as a kid. The texture just had me all kinds of wound up. In the interest of accuracy, though, I should say “hate/love” relationship because I’ve discovered as I aged that it wasn’t the loaf I hated as much as it was that…

Roasted Corn Potato Chowder

Roasted Corn and Potato Chowder from foodiewithfamily.com

People. It’s cold here. Seriously. I was in Mexico, Grand Cayman, and Jamaica last week. I came home two hours before a major winter storm hit that came *WOOHOO* with a serious cold snap. It hit -5°F the day after I got home. Truth? I was okay with it. I live here for a reason….

Ranch Cream Cheese Vegetable Pizza

Get your snack on with Snacky Ranch Cream Cheese Vegetable Pizza from foodiewithfamily.com

Maybe Ranch Cream Cheese Vegetable Pizza is a throw back. It’s hard to say. Can it be a throw back if you’ve been eating it constantly since you learned of it’s existence? Does Ranch Cream Cheese Vegetable Pizza qualify as retro if you’ve been consistently improving it over the years as you ate it? I…

Slow-Cooker Korean Style Barbecue Pork

Simple Slow Cooker Korean Style Barbecue Pork on Foodiewithfamily.com

Meat. It’s what my kids want to hear when they ask “What’s for dinner?” Any time the work “pork” appears in the answer, the cheers are even louder. For instance, when I said I was making Slow-Cooker Korean Style Barbecue Pork, the kitchen erupted in cheers, and they weren’t me cheering for myself. They adore…

Tex Mex Mash

Tex Mex Mash: smashed pinto beans, seasoned browned ground beef, and crispy bacon simmered in a garlicky, chipotle tomato sauce from foodiewithfamily.com

Why is it that sometimes the least attractive food tastes the best? I have a friend who is a transplant from Texas living in my cold, windy, snow-buried corner of Western New York. She braves it without complaint. Well, without more complaints than the rest of us who can be fairly crabby about the whole…

Garlic Mushroom Stroganoff

Creamy, intense Garlic Mushroom Stroganoff is a fast, fabulous winter meal from foodiewithfamily.com

High on the list of things that I ‘hated’ to eat as a child -which was an extensive list because OHMYWORD I was picky!- were mushrooms. I can’t say I tried them with any frequency, but I mistrusted them. It’s quite possibly insane to have a lack of trust in a food, but there was…
