Blackberry fontina grilled cheese recipe

I unabashedly love grilled cheese. This is no longer just kid food. There are so many ways to make your grilled cheese gourmet, and I love mixing up different combinations. That being said, every year that I’ve had this blog I’ve totally dropped the ball on Grilled Cheese Month and Grilled Cheese Day. April is National […]

Creamy Sun-dried Tomato Pasta with Chicken recipe

This dish was inspired by my pantry. I’ll admit, there’s enough food stocked in our pantry to last a good long while through an apocalypse. I was in there the other day and saw a bag of sun-dried tomatoes that had been sitting around for a while and thought, “I should use those.” So I looked […]

Mexican Veggie Impasta Bake

If there’s one food I could eat pretty much every day, it’s Mexican. I just love it! Tim didn’t much care for it when we first started dating, but he’s seen the light since he’s been with me. 😉 I first got the idea for this casserole from a Hungry Girl recipe. It seemed pretty […]

Superfood Casserole

Superfood casserole might seem like an oxymoron to you. When you think of casseroles, you probably don’t think of superfoods, and vice versa. Well, let me just tell you how this recipe came about and then maybe it’ll make more sense. As you may know, we have a one-year old son, Wes (14 months, to be exact). He […]
