Meatball Soup

The time has come. Time for my first cooking video! I’ve been into making staff spotlight videos for work lately and I thought I’d go ahead and try a cooking video with the kids. All in all, it was fun and I think it turned out great! It’s not taken from the point of view […]

One Pot Wonder: Chicken Lo Mein

You’ve probably seen the one pot meals floating around the internet, praised for the simplicity of cooking everything in one pot (even the pasta, gasp!), and touted as being simply delicious.

Easy Weeknight Meal: Copycat PF Chang Lettuce Wraps

I’ve seen several recipes for these on Pinterest, and even though they looked good, I resisted initially because it called for a couple of ingredients I didn’t have.  Well one of my friends at work has made them several times now, and I tasted hers one day and they were so good.  So I decided […]
