Zucchini Three Ways

Sometimes I have a surplus of one specific ingredient in my kitchen, in this case…it’s zucchini! Thankfully, it is a very versatile item that is super easy to cook and can take on many flavors. Now that I have gone back to work post-pandemic, I wanted to have dinners that we could prepare in advance…

Macho Nachos!

This sheet pan dinner was worthy of it’s own holiday. Just sayin’ It was Cinco de Mayo and we didn’t even realize it thanks to never knowing what day it is during Covid19. However, we still had an intuition to make shredded beef nachos. The human psyche is incredible. So, we didn’t get to miss…

French Onion Soup for Two

In continuation with my love for little pretty dishes, here was another I used my cast iron crocks for. French onion soup and yet again the almighty grilled salad. Did your mouth water? This was SUPER quick, SUPER easy, and SUPER delicious. My husband put this soup in his top 10 recipes and little does…

What a Crock!

Scalloped Vegetables with a Warm Shallot and Caper Vinaigrette served alongside a Grilled Romaine Salad This Crock is NOT Nonsense Pictured here is a delicious dish that warmed my soul. This one took some time and was a small labor of love…but guess what? I had nothing but quaran-TIME and I LOVED sharing this meal…

Chicken Nuggets are ALWAYS a Good Idea.

When I am feeling nostalgic or wanting comfort food, freezer finds are always my go-to. Everything is in my freezer. Pasta sauces, soups, meat, homemade pizzas, vegetables, fruits, TEQUILA, my list goes on… I am a huge fan of not wasting food so if I am not going to eat something before it’s prime, it…

Let’s Get it Poppin’

Poblano Poppin… Nothing starts a quarantine party like some stuffed poblanos! By the way, when I say party…I mean a stay at home dinner with my husband at 8PM instead of 7PM, we are WILD! No, we are SPICY…like these poppin’ peppers 🙂 We still had a lot of different peppers left over from our…

Orzo isn’t so BORZO

I know, that was really reaching…But seriously, orzo isn’t boring. Ahhh Orzo, is it a pasta? Or a rice? It’s a pasta, but I treat it like it’s rice. Food identity crisis. I love orzo because for some reason it feels healthier to me than a giant bowl of long noodles or a buttery and…

Black Bean Quarantine

Once again I find myself writing about the all encompassing black bean. Not on purpose, but my husband and I stumbled upon an amazing family owned business, Mecca Family Farms. https://www.facebook.com/MeccaFamilyFarms/ They were offering FANTASTIC quarantine curbside service of FRESH produce boxes at just $10 a pop! We never left the car and received no…

You have been “Chopped!”

JK… There has been a fun quarantine challenge going on via Instagram. Food Network has been tagging and posting the #ChoppedChallenge where someone picks you 4 mandatory basket ingredients and you have 24 hours to prepare and post your meal. SO FUN! Here was ours! Pictured on the left was my husband’s dish he created….

Stir Crazy?

Feeling a little cooped up? Don’t feel stir crazy, GET stir crazy…in the kitchen! Over the last couple of weeks, WE (yes we, my husband helped) have been cooking up a storm. At first, I wanted to clean out the fridge so we can make room for more fresh quarantine groceries. I also wanted to…
