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. Well, I’ve seen them, and they did seem simple – pasta, tomatoes, and basil – for example. Almost too simple. So I wasn’t really […]

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 […]

I would like to take this opportunity to formally and publicly declare my love for guacamole.  When I go to a Mexican restaurant, what I order has to meet certain requirements, and containing guacamole is one of them.  It’s so creamy and delicious and really easy to make, too, so if you’ve never done it, […]

Rice with an Attitude

The other day, I planned to make Spicy Tilapia with Pineapple Salsa.  I asked Tim what he wanted to go with it, and he said rice.  I didn’t want to use a preflavored box of rice because it’s so easy to make your own, and that way you can control the ingredients and flavor, so […]
