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 […]

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 […]

beef, casserole, easy weeknight meal, pasta

Sour Cream Noodle Bake

This is another recipe that I made a lot last year and apparently never found the time to blog. Sorry about that, folks. It’s from the ever-popular Ree Drummond, a.k.a., the Pioneer Woman, so you might have already seen it over on her blog. It’s an easy, comforting weeknight dinner that we all love. If […]

beans, easy weeknight meal, Indian, vegetarian

Red Kidney Bean Curry with Indian Spiced Cauliflower and Potatoes and Cucumber Scallion Raita

Well that title is quite the mouthful, isn’t it? If I’d thought about it, I would have taken photos of each of these items separately, but alas. This is a vegetarian meal that Steve actually enjoys. I’ve been really into homemade Indian food lately because it’s the only way Katie can enjoy the delicious flavors […]

chicken, easy weeknight meal, rice

Food Cart Curry Chicken

I recently rediscovered Ruth Reichl. I actually wrote my senior thesis about two of her books and I can’t believe I haven’t kept up with her all these years. One of her new books, My Kitchen Year, had so many amazing recipes that Steve joked I’d tagged all of them. This one for Food Cart […]

easy weeknight meal, fish, sushi

Salmon Sushi Bowls

We recently discovered that the salmon we buy from the local fish market is sushi grade. Ahhhh! Such a game changer. We’ve gone a bit overboard since then, buying huge slabs of salmon so we can grill some on a cedar plank and cut up the rest for sashimi. One time Steve bought a whole […]

beef, easy weeknight meal, one-pot

One Pot Cowboy Casserole

I recently saw this recipe for Crockpot Cowboy Casserole on my friend Kylee’s blog. I don’t use my crockpot so I knew immediately that I wanted to make this into a one pot stove top meal. I had no idea this was going to be worth blogging so I didn’t take a good photo. D’oh. […]

asian, easy weeknight meal, stir fry

Beef and Vegetable Stir Fry

I think it’s safe to say this blog has become just a space for me to easily share recipes with friends and family. Case in point – I posted a photo of this stir fry on IG last night and am only blogging it because a friend asked me for the recipe. I had planned […]
