Southwest Turkey Skillet

One pan dinners are king around here, both for ease of dinner making and dinner cleaning up. We especially like one pan dinners that require no advanced food prep and get on the table quickly, and this southwest turkey skillet checks all of those boxes! If a sweet potato hash and a turkey chili had […]

Grilled Cheese with Bacon-Onion Jam

Grilled Cheese with Bacon-Onion Jam

Just when you think grilled cheese is the most perfect food there ever was, somebody goes and puts BACON-ONION JAM in it. I definitely could eat this bacon-onion jam with a spoon. Caramelized onion with crispy bacon cooked down with sugar and balsamic vinegar for the sweet and savory flavors of my dreams! My current […]

Baked Spaghetti

Homemade Baked Spaghetti

Baked spaghetti! It’s like lasagna in taste and ingredients and ability to feed a crowd, but a whole lot easier in the assembling/eating department. Like lasagna, baked spaghetti is a layered casserole-type dish. You start with cooked spaghetti noodles mixed with parmesan and egg and butter, some doctored-up spaghetti sauce, ricotta cheese, and a whole […]

Chicken Bog

Chicken Bog - One Dish Chicken and Rice

This is a comfort food meal that is also a one-dish dinner, so is a WIN on all counts in my book. If the name of this recipe has you wondering, “since when can you eat a bog?”, I really don’t know. Southern Living says this is called a bog. And bog feels mysteriously Southern […]

Individual Pepperoni Pizzas with Homemade Pizza Sprinkle

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I am EXCITED. I love Valentine’s Day not only for breaking up the monotony of some very bleak and blustery winter months, but also for being a super cute holiday that I think is equally enjoyable for kids and adults. You should know that homemade pizza with […]

30 Minute Black Bean Soup

We have a salsa problem in our house. We continue to buy new jars of salsa, open them, eat 75% of the salsa, put the unfinished jar in the fridge, and restart the cycle. Which means our fridge is constantly filling up with mostly-empty salsa jars. Corn salsas, chipotle salsas, regular chunky salsas, green salsas. […]

One-Pan Asian Noodles

Upon first forkful of these noodles, Husband declared, “these taste like takeout!” Hedging any possible offense by comparing my home cooking to that of a takeout-style joint, he quickly added, “and I mean that as a compliment!” But no disclaimer needed, Husband. Tasting like takeout is the gold standard of homemade Asian food to me. […]

Weeknight Cassoulet

Shortcut Cassoulet Recipe

I should confess that I’ve never had actual cassoulet. I did live in France, but all that really means here is that I can spell “cassoulet” without having to look up “how to spell cassoulet”. Traditional cassoulet has been on my bucket list of things to make for many, many years now.  My knowledge of […]

Kale Salad with Bacon Croutons

Lemon Kale Salad with Homemade Bacon Croutons

My husband is unafraid to share that he does not like kale. In fact, he wants you to know that he does not like kale. The more popular it becomes, the more adamant he is: Kale has no place on his plate. So when I told him mid-dinner prep that we would be having kale […]

Baked Chicken Shawarma

Isn’t it funny how quickly things can become comfort food? Before living in Michigan, my Ohio-grown tastebuds had never experienced chicken shawarma. Early on in Husband’s law school years, we discovered a Mediterranean restaurant that was legit cheaper than fast food, just as fast as fast food, and (the best part!) en route home from […]
