Chicken with creamy spinach & artichoke sauce

Recently, I’ve found myself making a lot of things with spinach or artichoke—or both. So it really didn’t surprise me that I started salivating when I found the following recipe during my recipe research. What I really like about this particular dish is that everything goes in one skillet, so you’re not using a million…

Tomato, peach, and mozzarella salad

Summer means many things to me: hot, muggy days, flip flops, sunglasses permanently placed upon my head. But one of my most favorite things about the summer is the food—specifically the delicious, crisp produce. I’ve shared a couple of great warm weather salads in the past (including this beet, tomato, and feta salad), but I…

Greek orzo salad

I recently posted this recipe for Greek chicken kebabs, and as yummy as they sounded, you were probably thinking, “What should I serve with those kebabs?” Not to worry. Today’s post will provide you with just the answer: Greek orzo salad. I made this recipe alongside the Greek chicken kebabs and they were the perfect combination….

Curried chicken salad

Those that know me know my true loves (and I’m not talking about Doug). These loves include cheese, ice cream, sushi (not all at once, of course) … and chicken salad and the Barefoot Contessa can’t be forgotten either. When I was thinking about my next recipe to post, I realized I have never shared…

Greek chicken kebabs

I promise I didn’t drop off the face of the Earth. And for those that anxiously await recipes from me, I apologize for the mini hiatus. But I promise this post’s recipe will be well worth it. With the warm weather back, it’s the perfect reason to head outdoors and do some grilling. And what…

Cilantro lime grilled chicken with avocado salsa

Now that the weather is getting (kind of) warmer, it’s the perfect season for grilling. And although Doug does the grilling at our house, I do the prep work—and to be honest, I think the prep work is the most important step in the grill process. It helps to lock in the tastiness so you’re…

Chicken, spinach, and white sauce lasagna

Although I love my regular lasagna, I do enjoy twists on the classics—and this recipe for white sauce lasagna is definitely that. Rather than using a ground red meat (like beef), this variation goes with the lighter option of chicken, and packs in the veggies with spinach. The dish is rounded out with a garlic and…

Chicken with sun-dried tomato and cream sauce

For those of you who thought I disappeared off the face of the Earth, I did not. I have just been taking some time off and traveling—which means less time at home cooking and baking . But I’m back and promise to post some recipes of a few of my favorite dishes I devoured in Ireland (thanks to…

Chicken burrito bowl

Doug and I host Super Bowl every year—and I always try to throw in a few new dishes to keep things fresh. This year, one of our friends had a few dietary restrictions, so in an effort to make sure I had at least one thing she could eat, I searched my Pinterest arsenal to…

Spinach ricotta calzone

After the Super Bowl this year, I had an extra pound of pizza dough lying around. So rather than make a simple pizza, I decided to jazz up the pizza dough a bit and make a calzone—vegetarian style. So if you’re looking for a Friday (during Lent) dinner option that doesn’t involve one of your…

Winter minestrone soup

I’ve had a cold the past few days, so obviously all I wanted to do was crawl into bed, cover myself with a warm blanket, and never move again. But alas, my Type A personality doesn’t allow for me to sit still for too long—which means I used my energy to make something that is…

Spinach and ricotta noodle pudding

With the weather getting much nippier and the air blowing a bit colder, it’s the perfect time to warm up with a hot bowl of something delicious. And who better to help us in the comfort food department than the glorious Ina Garten? Her recipe for this spinach and ricotta noodle pudding can be enjoyed…
