Mushroom Stroganoff

Mushroom Stroganoff

I love stroganoff and I don’t know why but before the other night I hadn’t made it in a very long time, it used to be a regular early in my marriage and I *think* one of the first sauces I learned on my own to make from scratch rather than using a flavor packet…


Pumpkin Gnocchi

Pumpkin Gnocchi with Browned Butter Sage Alfredo

OMG this dish is soo amazing! Now it does have pumpkin in it, but I will be honestly the pumpkin flavor doesn’t really shine, the sage is what totally makes this dish. So if by some odd chance you are not a pumpkin lover 😉 This might just be a pumpkin recipe you would enjoy….


Tortellini and Greens

Tortellini and Greens

This is a great quick and healthy dinner, great for busy weekday nights. Chop the veggies in advance and you can have dinner ready in just about 15 min! It’s so good too and my kids had little problem eating up their veggies. Which by the way it’s full of super good for you veggies!…


Gorgonzola Cream Sauce

Gorgonzola Cream Sauce

So I totally was planning on making homemade alfredo sauce last night. I didn’t plan my menu ahead like I know I should! So around 2 yesterday was like “hmm… what should I make for dinner…?” I knew I had a lot of milk, I had some chicken that had to get used and I…


Mediterranean Pasta Salad

Mediterranean Pasta Salad

Sorry I don’t have a better picture, I knew I should have brought a bowl to plate up and have my husband take an awesome picture of this! I made this for my husbands team for their 24 hour film race and it was just too good not to share! Yum! So in my lack…


Cheesy Ham Pasta

Cheesy Ham Pasta

This cheesy, gooey, carb loaded comfort food is also a great dish to use up leftover Easter ham 🙂 In case you needed a good excuse to make some delicious ooey, gooey, cheesy pasta 🙂 I remember as a kid we used to cut up hot dogs or little smokies to mix into a box…


Spinach and Cheese Manicotti

See that basil in the picture up there?? It’s purple basil! Out of my garden!! I just think it’s so awesome to have purple basil growing in my garden 🙂 Hopefully I can keep it alive and growing! Who else gardens? What are you growing? I love the idea of growing my own herbs and…


Homemade Mac and Cheese

Shh! I have a secret ingredient in my mac and cheese I’m gonna tell you about! For the most part my kids are pretty good about eating veggies, it’s not usually too much of an issue. I usually offer a variety so if they decide what day they don’t like a particular one there are…


Vegetable Bolognese with Spaghetti Squash

So we’ve been feeling a bit under the weather here the last few days. When I’m not feeling great I tend to crave comfort food really bad! (Weird, I know, I get hungrier when I’m sick rather then losing my appetite…) This vegetable bolognese is perfect, full of veggies making it super vitamin packed, lots…


Thai Peanut Noodles

I love Thai food! Peanut sauce is so quick and easy to whip off and the ingredients are all ones I typically have on hand. My 4 year old wanted noodles for breakfast, crazy kid, I have no idea where he gets it from 😀 So I thought why not, Thai peanut noodles sounds like…
