Pizza Friday: Pierogi Pizza

This is one of the easiest pizzas I make and easily one of the tastiest. That’s saying a lot because you all know how much we love homemade pizza around here. I first saw this pizza over at Dinner: A Love Story. One bite and we all said it tasted just like a pierogi. The […]

baking, dessert, zucchini

Zucchini Muffins

I can’t believe I’ve never baked with zucchini. We love zucchini and I use it a lot in savory recipes like Crispy Baked Zucchini Fries, Zucchini Corn Pizza, Cheesy Zucchini Rice, zucchini fritters, on skewers, in summer pastas, etc. But this was my first time baking with it. The result? So good!! None of us […]

easy weeknight meal, Indian

Indian Butter Chicken

Added another Indian dish to my repertoire last night. Woohoo! This Indian Butter Chicken was so darn good. I combined the cooking method from my standby Chicken Tikka with the ingredients in For the Love of Cooking’s Butter Chicken. I ended up doubling the sauce because (1) we love extra sauce and (2) I didn’t […]

chicken, easy weeknight meal

Apricot and Mustard Baked Chicken

This Apricot and Mustard Baked Chicken has quickly become one of our favorite weeknight meals. The baking time is a bit long (longer than the original recipe states) but it’s almost completely hands-off. The flavor is truly fantastic – the perfect combo of sweet and savory. I like to serve this with mashed potatoes and […]

easy weeknight meal, pasta, Pioneer Woman

Pioneer Woman’s Lemon Pasta Pronto

The Pioneer Woman recently posted a video of herself making this recipe for Lemon Pasta Pronto on her Instagram stories. It sounded right up our alley so I printed out the recipe (fair warning, the recipe on the Food Network site doesn’t include all the ingredients/directions). Past experience has taught me that I can always […]

chicken, easy weeknight meal, Italian, pepperoni, sauce

Chicken Pizzaiola

This chicken pizzaiola is another one of those recipes that I’ve looked at countless times over the years and bypassed time and time again. Who knows why; it’s not like it’s a complicated recipe. My only note is to make sure you use plenty of pepperoni so you can really taste the flavor. Such an […]

bagel, breakfast, casserole, holiday

Everything Bagel Breakfast Casserole

I’m always on the lookout for new make-ahead breakfast casseroles. I love them for holidays because you do all the work the day before and then you get to enjoy a delicious breakfast with minimal effort the next morning. Just make sure you plan ahead because most of them need to bake for about an […]

Pizza Friday: Hawaiian Pizza

We recently went to Southern California to visit my dad and stepmom. On the way home we were lucky enough to fly out of John Wayne Airport in Orange County, which despite being a very small airport has a surprising number of decent eateries. At least compared to Newark Airport. Ugh. I will never forget […]

cake, dessert, strawberries

Strawberry Summer Sheet Cake

I know strawberry season is long gone but if I don’t blog this Strawberry Summer Sheet Cake now it’ll sit in my draft folder for years and never see the light of day. So just agree to save this for next spring/summer, OK? Great. I went through a baking phase this summer, fueled mostly by […]

dessert, ice cream

Green Tea Ice Cream

This is one of the recipes I found in my draft folder that had never been published. It was from one of the themed dinners we used to do with our friends, Chris and Tracie. I posted the other recipes from this meal back in 2015 (!!!) but not this one. I wish I knew […]
