Pasta with Fresh Tomatoes and Basil

and more! It was a little tricky to decide on a title for this dish, because if I were to explain it completely it’s pasta tossed in olive oil with fresh tomatoes, basil, garlic and parsley! Luckily, the long name is the most difficult part of this perfect Summer lunch or dinner! It’s a very Continue reading

Easy Caribbean Jerk Chicken

You know where the best jerk chicken is in the world? At an amazing resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica where it’s smothered in delicious jerk seasoning and grilled fresh by the pool each afternoon! My husband and I ate this nearly every day on our honeymoon, because it was just that good! We still wonder why we didn’t bring a jar of the seasoning home with us, but I suppose that’s as good of reason as any to go back…right? 🙂 Continue reading

Grilled Chicken and Berry Salad

Although the ever changing Ohio weather is starting to go downhill today, we’ve had some really nice Summer like days lately and it’s getting me in the mood for great Summer food dishes! I’ve made salads with fruit in the past, but this is  Continue reading

Deliciously Easy Crockpot BBQ Chicken

The crockpot is a wonderful invention! I knew I was growing up when I started putting such items on my “Christmas list”! It was actually a realization that made me smile, because I love this part of my life where I can take care of my family, provide good meals and turn a house into Continue reading

Southwestern Chopped Chicken Salad

Salads are a favorite in our family, even my stepdaughter loves salad…you know, as long as it only has cheese and carrots on it and Italian dressing to top 🙂 I slowly try to sneak more into her salads, but so far I’ve only been successful with adding carrots. I’ll take it for now! Back on Valentine’s Day, I added Continue reading

Garden Style Lasagne

So here’s how this one has gone….I pinned a recipe for Vegetable Lasagne, kept looking at it from time to time and this weekend (several months later) finally decided to spend the needed time in the kitchen to make it. Sometimes the number of steps in a recipe can be a bit intimidating, but once you break it down and actually go through the process it’s nothing too complicated, just time consuming. Yesterday it snowed pretty much all day (I think we ended up with about six inches of snow on the ground) so it was the perfect Saturday to do some Continue reading

Chicken Noodle Soup with Homemade Noodles

Welcome to my first ‘2 in 1’ post! I’ll be sharing two recipes in this one post…homemade noodles and chicken noodle soup. So this past weekend, it was cold and snowy and we had a little girl in the house with the sniffles. I decided a comforting chicken noodle soup was the perfect meal for dinner! I was going to take the easier route and make it with store bought noodles (that I even picked up when shopping earlier in the day), but I couldn’t bring myself to do it! Once you’ve had soup with homemade noodles you just won’t Continue reading

Spinach and Tomato Tortellini

As an Italian, and a fan of delicious dishes in general, I love pasta! This one in particular was so simple to make and actually surpassed my expectations on taste! It’s creamy texture and fresh ingredients make it a scrumptious meal! My husband even commented on how good it was without me having to ask…yep, added to dinner menu! Continue reading

White Bean Chicken Chili

As a follow up to my Cranberry Breakfast muffins, I made chili for the first time this afternoon! I stumbled upon a white bean chicken chili recipe a few weeks ago that sounded wonderful and finally got around to cooking it today. Who knew making a tasty and healthy chili was so easy! I think it will make a perfect meal for my husband once he gets home from hunting today even though we’re having a rare and warmer day for mid January – 40’s! This is truly like a Continue reading

All Kinds of Vegetable Soup

I love making soups during these cold Winter months so that’s exactly what I did this Sunday afternoon! I also love veggies and this soup is packed with them! One thing I really like about the recipe is how versatile it can be; you could swap out many vegetables for others or add different types of beans and potatoes. It’s all about preference and what you and your family like! This soup was surprisingly Continue reading
