Crispy Chicken with Creamy Lemon Zucchini Pasta

Crispy Chicken with Creamy Lemon Zucchini Pasta

This Parmesan-crusted crispy chicken dinner with creamy lemon pasta and zucchini turned out way better than I anticipated. Why? Because, truthfully, I’m not a big chicken breast fan. There. I said it. I’d rather eat pork, beef or fish. A plain grilled chicken breast is so…meh. BUT this is a chicken recipe that I can… Continue Reading

Bar Cookies From Above {Caramel Heavenlies}

Bar Cookies From Above {Caramel Heavenlies}

Still baking cookies for Christmas? You just found the perfect recipe…cinnamon caramel, coconut, almonds, marshmallows, and over a pound of butter in one giant sheet of bar cookies. Definitely not healthy, but definitely rich and delicious. And easy to make! I made up this recipe years ago. I don’t even remember how I came up… Continue Reading

Baked Macaroni and Cheese with Spinach, Tomatoes, and Ham

Baked Macaroni and Cheese with Spinach, Tomatoes, and Ham

Who doesn’t like macaroni and cheese? You simply can’t go wrong with a mixture of pasta and cheese sauce. Even Owen eats it (most of the time anyway). Since it’s one of the few things that Owen won’t throw all over the floor, I frequently make cheesy pasta mixtures with vegetables hidden in it. If… Continue Reading

A Better Breakfast Sandwich

A Better Breakfast Sandwich

Confession: I love McDonald’s Egg McMuffins. I know it’s not exactly the most gourmet choice for breakfast. But nevertheless I find them to be delicious, especially when I’m pregnant. I don’t have many cravings. I actually seem to dislike more things rather than crave certain foods while pregnant. However, there are two things that I… Continue Reading

Buttery Gnocchi with Mushrooms and Arugula

Buttery Gnocchi with Mushrooms and Arugula

I formulated this recipe with the intent that it could be a potential Valentine’s Day meal for my readers who are staying home with their special someone this holiday. But, on second thought, I do not recommend this recipe for a romantic evening. It’s rich and filling. It tastes divine and you won’t be able… Continue Reading

Aunt Pat’s No-Fail Fudge

Aunt Pat’s No-Fail Fudge

I’m sure you’ve seen foolproof recipes for fudge before. They have sweetened condensed milk in them, right? Well these recipes aren’t for true fudge. Real fudge is made by cooking sugar, butter and milk. And this can be a bit tricky. Lucky for you and me, my great aunt’s recipe for old-fashioned real fudge is… Continue Reading

Light and Rustic Gratin Potatoes

Light and Rustic Gratin Potatoes

I’ve mentioned before that Owen is a picky eater. He does, however, like potatoes. It’s probably the Irish in him. And since I’m weak and don’t like dealing with this, I give into Owen’s demands and make a lot of starchy dishes. Owen also loves cheese. Potatoes + Cheese = Gratin = Happy Owen. I… Continue Reading
