Sausage Ragù


Perhaps this blog post should be titled “The Best Sauce Ever”…  However, that’s a fairly subjective claim to make.  If you ask my husband, though, he’ll tell you this is not only the best sauce ever, but that it is the best thing I have ever made. So, while this rich meat sauce is certainly…

Slow Cooker Tortellini Soup


In the last week or two, I’ve been taking advantage of my slow cooker quite a bit. The cooler weather has been a welcome change.  Suddenly soups and other slow cooked meals are sounding much more appealing to me. It also helps that a little bit of effort in the morning (when I actually have some…

Italian Sausage and Egg Bake


I have mixed feelings about the time after New Years… I always feel a bit of sadness taking down the Christmas decorations.  Once the tree comes down, there’s no denying that the holiday season is over.  But, at the same time, I enjoy the quietness of the winter months that follow the holidays. I look forward…

Baked Ziti Casserole


When it comes to dinner parties around the holidays, I am all for thinking outside the box. Turkey, ham, and roast beef are fantastic, but sometimes I think it’s fun to do something a bit more casual and cozy, especially for a small gathering of friends or family! Casseroles are a great way to keep…

White Bean Soup with Sausage and Kale


This time of year we start to get kale in our CSA boxes on a fairly regular basis. I know a lot of you have probably tried the ever-popular baked kale chips, and you may love them… But, I really can’t say that I’m a fan.  Sure, if you add a lot of oil and…

If you’re not already familiar…

Today I am so lucky to have Amber from Bluebonnets & Brownies here to share a recipe for Weeknight Sausage Pasta with all of you! It’s really a good thing for everyone… If I was writing, you’d probably be reading all about hospital food… And, no one wants that! I met Amber at the Big…

Friday Favorites – Episode 93


With warmer weather comes grilling season… And, if you’re anything like me, you love trying out new recipes! So, before I get to this week’s Friday Favorites, I thought I’d share the Backyard Barbeque Recipes eBook from Food Your Way. It’s a free collection of recipes from many of my favorite bloggers, and I am thrilled…

Friday Favorites – Episode 82


I don’t really have a long elaborate story to tell this week… It’s been a fairly ordinary week. I’ve been cooking, baking, writing, and taking photos. It’s been nice, but also uneventful. So, instead of dragging things out any further, I’ll just tell you about my favorite blog posts from the past week! I love doughnuts, but…

Kitchen Bootcamp Roundup – Soups


Another month of Kitchen Bootcamp has come to a close. This month’s challenge was to make soup… What could be better for the month of January?

Though I haven’t posted them all, I’ve actually made quite a few soups this month. We’ve had some cold and snowy weather (though, not as much snow as I know many of you have had), so there have been many nights where I just craved some soup.
