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

Warm Smashed Skinny Bean Dip

Warm Smashed Skinny Bean Dip

I know what you’re thinking – since when did this gal start making anything that can be labeled “skinny”? Although most of my recipes contain loads of butter and carbs, I’ve decided to share some healthy snacks and meals in 2015. I’m hoping this will motivate me to cook more creatively by challenging me to… Continue Reading

Zucchini Tomato Ricotta Egg Bake

Is it really June? But there was so much that I wanted to get done before the summer! Rather than panic, I think I’ll just eat a quart of local strawberries, enjoy the start of my favorite season, and forget about the overwhelming list of stuff to do before It #2’s arrival in August. Every… 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

Caramelized Onion, Fresh Tomato and Prosciutto Pizza

Caramelized Onion, Fresh Tomato and Prosciutto Pizza

In the dead of winter, I really start missing our nights out for pizza down at the shore. Whenever we’re in Ocean City, we stop in for dinner at Piccini, a wood fired brick oven pizzeria. Their gourmet pizzas always hit the spot. Since I’m not in Ocean City and we’re only halfway through winter,… Continue Reading

Owen is 17 months old and ready for his second Christmas! I have to say the holidays are so much more magical when you have children.

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
