Chicken Sausage, Kale, and Mushroom One Pot Pasta {25 Minute Meal}

Is it just me or does already delicious pasta taste even better when it’s cold outside? And taste even better still when you’re in your coziest clothes and curled up under a blanket watching Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock? Somebody PLEASE give me a high-five over Benedict Cumberbatch? At least throw me a little hand flutter [Read On]

Brown and Wild Rice Pilaf with Dried Cherries and Scallions

Some dishes are strictly for the big people. Big people -at our house- is defined as anyone old enough to wear adult sized shoes.

Philly Cheesesteak Stew

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]
