Slow Cooker Barbecue Pulled Chicken

Slow Cooker Barbecue Pulled Chicken

Here’s an easy recipe for BBQ pulled chicken, just in time for summer! It’s much like the classic pork BBQ…perfect summer fare, in my opinion. Plus, all you have to do is plop everything in the slow cooker, then go and enjoy your day at the beach (if you happen to be near a beach).… Continue Reading

Zucchini Tomato Ricotta Egg Bake

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

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

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

Beef and Bean Chili with Crispy Onion Strings

Beef and Bean Chili with Crispy Onion Strings

Now that it’s cool I can make one of my favorite foods – chili! I’ve always loved my mom’s chili. And this recipe is basically how she makes it (don’t fix it if it isn’t broken, right?). Except I added some crispy onions on top. Just because. I know some chili die-hards believe that true… Continue Reading
