Blackberry Jalapeño Pork Loin

If I watch TV, the majority of the time, it’s a food show.  I pick up a lot of food knowledge, techniques, and other tidbits.  It’s not as often as you’d think that I see a recipe I feel compelled to make.  However, when I saw Guy Fieri make this Raspberry Jalapeño Pork Loin on the Rachael […]

Everything’s Better with Bacon, Tortellini, and Spinach

I love tortellini, so I am always looking for new ways to cook it.  Specifically, there’s a type of cheese and spinach tortellini (by Barilla) that I think is exceptionally delicious. I saw this recipe on Pinterest, and I knew I wanted to try it. (They just so happened to use the kind of tortellini […]

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 […]

Winter Chopped Salad

I’ve said before that whenever we go to our friends’ Dave and Kylie’s for dinner, we bring a salad (or when they come over, they bring the salad).  This was my most recent creation for dinner at Dave and Kylie’s. I have to admit, I am kind of a salad freak.  I love them, and […]

Chocolate Pecan Bars

These.  Are.  Delicious.  Sinfully delicious.  And rich.  And decadent.  I first made these at Thanksgiving with my Mother in Law, but I didn’t have my camera so I didn’t blog it then.  They were so good though – Tim’s sister even said it was the best thing she ever ate – that I knew I’d […]

Skinny Crock Pot Chicken Enchilada Soup

I think it’s officially soup season.  This is quite possibly – no, definitely –  my new favorite crock pot soup.  I found it on Skinnytaste, and it was so easy and extremely scrumptious.  And light!  I love Mexican food, so I might be a bit biased, but we shared this with some friends, and they […]

Cheesy Chicken in Poblano Sauce

I saw this recipe, as you might have guessed, on Rachael Ray.  I originally saved it for my husband because he loves peppers and spicy food.  Well, it actually wasn’t that spicy – I was totally able to tolerate the heat level.  We both absolutely loved this and will definitely be making it again.  I […]
