Roasted Red Pepper and Gouda Baked Chicken

So, I saw this recipe on Rachael Ray’s website.  I didn’t actually see her cook it, and the name didn’t really appeal to me (Hungarian Roasted Pepper and Paprika Chicken), but curiosity got the best of me, and I clicked on the link for the recipe.  I liked the ingredients – chicken, paprika, roasted red peppers, and […]

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

I fully intended to make a Mexican dish this week to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, and it just didn’t happen.  I hope you can forgive me, but coming on the heels of my National Grilled Cheese Month transgressions, I know it will be hard.  I have actually been very busy baking, so I hope you’re prepared […]

Garlic Cheddar Smashed Potatoes

Southwest Skillet Scramble

On weekends, Tim and I like to put together different variations of skillet scrambles using different meats, veggies, and cheeses.  They are so quick and easy, made all in one pan, and you can make them millions of different ways.  Tim loves eggs, so he’d eat them any which way.  I decided to put something […]

Salsa Stoup with Avocado Smash and Whole Wheat Quesadillas

Is there a 12 step program for soup?  Because if there is, I should probably sign up.  I’ve made more soup this winter than any other winter I can remember.  I even created a soup chock full of vegetables and then got crazy one day and added pesto to it.  It. was. delicious.  I’ll definitely […]
