A New Hope

Right now we are all going through a rough time. With being self quarantined, businesses shut down, and people being laid off, we really don’t know what to do with ourselves. I personally am not working until further notice which is pretty scary. The idea of possibly having to find something else work wise is…

Baby Got Back (Ribs)

OK so it’s not ribs…. One of my step mom’s favorite dishes is pork baby back ribs with sauerkraut and mashed potatoes…who’s isn’t? I wanted to revisit this meal with a little twist. My take on this classic dish was a slow cooked pork butt served up on a cauliflower mash and a cabbage and…

Ahoy Matey!

Zucchini Boats plus Pesto Pizza All aboard this dinner cruise…Navigating the culinary waters is your Chef and Captain, Paige. We are sailing away into the abyss with some ZUCCHINI boats. They will help keep you afloat on your hectic weeknights or add a little wind to your sail on your weekend. These little guys are…

Panzanella (I think this should be a Chef Super Hero name)

What is better then one Italian dish? THREE Italian dishes in ONE. This salad is bursting with flavors that taste so well together you won’t miss the bowl of pasta. I am also pretending this is super healthy since it is in fact a salad and not the bowl of pasta… It’s salty, crunchy, juicy,…

Breakfast for Dinner

Cornbread Waffles with bacon and green onion + a fried egg on top! Sometimes breakfast for breakfast is just not enough. I don’t know about you, but I could eat it all day long. So why not for dinner? I want something quick and delicious and breakfast is pretty much always quick and delicious. The…

Goodness Gracious Great Balls of…Zucchini.

Zucchini “Meatballs” Recently we are getting more and more into the meatless Monday craze. It’s a tough day of the week for us, like most…and we find we can save a lot of time with just a bunch of veggies on a Monday night. It can also save us prepping time during the week and…

Celery Soup

Celery soup? Sounds boring, you’re not wrong. However, celery can be great! Especially in a soup, celery has tons of flavor when it’s cooked and is so good for you too. It is also perfect for a quick and super easy weeknight meal. I wanted something hearty and healthy for dinner tonight. My husband is…

Here Fishy, Fishy, Fishy…

As most of you know, I do NOT care for seafood. I never enjoyed it, never cared for it, never would order it out. As I got older, I would eventually try to branch out and at least taste some seafood here and there….with the same conclusion, I did not like it, texture OR taste….

Black Bean Feign

All aboard the black bean train! This is a great trending topic train I am totally down to ride. Not only is the black bean a great, inexpensive pantry staple, it is also healthy (high fiber, lowers cholesterol, protein rich, and I could go on…) and hearty. These little beauties will add the extra “oomph”…

Piña Para La Niña

Summer’s almost over but not ready to end the fun? How about serving up a fresh and fruity salsa at your next shin dig or bring it to your weekend get together and be the life of the salsa party. Something I love about salsas is that you can combine almost anything and your recipe…
