So, I’m going to go ahead and pretend that it hasn’t been almost five months since my last post.

(Eeep! Five months!)

My lack of posting has not been from a lack of cooking.

I’m still dutifully planning five homemade meals a week, minimum.

And thanks to (the glory that is) Pinterest redefining the way I store recipes, at least one of those per week have been new-to-me dishes.

Last night’s new dish turned out to be teriyaki shrimp soba noodle bowls by Lauren’s Latest.  Read the rest of this entry »


BBQ Ranch Chicken Salad

September 3, 2012

Labor Day is upon us, and I can’t believe that fall is almost here!

Just kidding!

I live in Florida.

Fall doesn’t happen until, like, December.

So with that in mind, I will continue to offer amazing salad recipes.

Yeah, that’s right. I said “amazing salad recipes.” Read the rest of this entry »


Homemade Hot Pockets

August 26, 2012

Ahhh, Hot Pockets.

Those plasticky, bumpy pepperoni and hot cheese lava filled food products were once a thing of glory for me.

When I would sleep over at friends’ houses, I would marvel at their freezers full of glorious frozen goodness.

And I was always a little surprised with they casually dismissed my exaltations at their many, many options of instant food bliss.

You mean you can have a waffle in, like, 2 minutes? Read the rest of this entry »


Cobb salad with garlic ranch dressing

July 9, 2012

Me: Any ideas for new foods to try soon?

Husband: How about some salads?

Me: *Stunned silence.*

Those of you who know my sweet husband are aware of his being a, for the most part, meat-and-potatoes kind of guy.

So imagine my surprise at this response.

Granted, I had just served him the heaviest, most artery-clogging (but worth it), delicious salisbury steak the night before.

But, still. …

Southwestern quinoa salad

February 5, 2012

Over the last year, a healthy grain called “quinoa” has been all over the foodie blogosphere.

Apparently, it’s the best thing since kale chips.

Quinoa, pronounced “KEEN-wah,” looks like tiny brown balls of health.

I was skeptical, to say the least. Read the rest of this entry »


Ravioli lasagna

January 22, 2012

Sometimes you crave a classic, homemade lasagna.

And then you think, who’s got the time for that?

All that layering.

Spiced chicken with couscous salad

January 16, 2012

I’m not too keen on New Year’s resolutions.

For the most part, it’s lying to yourself.

You make promises. Swear you’ll do better this year.

Two weeks later you’re back to who you were and what you were doing in the first place.

Who needs the added stress? Read the rest of this entry »
