Flourless M&M Brownie Cookies

Do you read Jew Hungry? Whitney is one of my favourite bloggers. She’s fashionable, hilarious, and has the most adorable baby girl. Not that I stalk her on Instagram or anything… When she posted her Flourless Chunky Monkey Brownie Cookies last month, I knew I had to make them. I also know I was going [Read On]

One Pot Lightened Up Chicken Parmesan Pasta {25 Minute Meal}

I’ve been a big fan of the one pot pasta approach for a while now. My One-Pot Bacon Pizza Pasta and One Pot Tex Mex Pasta Toss are some of the more popular dishes among the ‘busy parent’ and teen cooking classes I teach. The dishes are well loved for their taste, ease, economy, and [Read On]

Slow Cooker Peach Salsa Pork Roast with Sweet Potatoes

I am at a loss of words. See that pork roast up there? It’s just so… So… So… Perfect. And the effort that went into it? It’s embarrassingly simple. It’s the kind of recipe that somehow just doesn’t seem like it should work. When my best friend of almost twenty five years (*GASP* 25 years?) [Read On]

Philly Cheesesteak Stew

Giant Garlic Butter Soft Pretzel Rods

Soft pretzels. I’ve been known to make a meal of them from time to time. I’m not a snob… I like ‘em all, pretty much; homemade is best, but I’ll still happily munch on airport, mall, or frozen pretzels. There is one, though, that I come back to time and time again and that is [Read On]

White Spinach French Bread Pizzas

When my husband goes on business trips, I have an indecent and scandalous fixation on frozen pizzas. My husband likes pizza a lot, but he gets his fill relatively quickly, unlike me. My love for pizza, however, knows no breaking point or season. There is not a point where my thought is, “Meh. I’m bored [Read On]

Mocha Marshmallow Pops

My Valentine-for-life is a funny bird. The man is macho. He loves football, guns, archery, digging ditches in our yard, playing screaming electric guitar, building things, winter camping, and going on speed hikes through the woods. He’s an unapologetic geek. True, he’s an engineer and that’s part of the package, but it’s way more than [Read On]
