Most of the time, I try to eat a lower-carb diet. Don’t get me wrong, I love carbs, but carbs love my thighs too. One of the easiest ways for me (and everyone) to cut out carbs is to replace...
.It seems I’ve been on an Asian food kick lately. I have to admit, the flavors used in Asian cooking really just make my pallet happy. I honestly could eat Korean food, Thai or some of the other Asian cuisines...
Summer is almost here and with it comes the desire to lounge in the sun, eat watermelon and grill anything covered in barbecue sauce. The first thing most people think of when they hear barbecue is ribs and they are...
I love a good bowl of soup. Better yet, I love a good bowl of soup that includes ramen noodles! (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || ).push({}); I grew up on ramen. It was my lunch of choice as a kid...
I have a confession to make. For the longest time, I didn’t like spicy foods. I’d always steer clear of the on menus and never make anything at home that might have a little kick. Clearly, I was missing out...
The days are really heating up around here. It’s supposed to be in the 90’s the next two weeks and we decided not to put the pool up this summer. The good news is that the lake is only...
Each year when fall rolls around I get a craving for warm, delicious comfort food. It never fails. The chillier weather and falling leaves leave me yearning for hearty stews and roasts almost as much as all my favorite, fall...
If you’ve been following my recipes for a while then you know I’m not dairy-free, gluten-free or anything-free-type-girl. I love using whole foods – cream, whole milk, butter, olive oil, real chocolate, real sugar, etc. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle...
Whenever we have a big family party, pasta is always involved. We’re Italian so I’ve grown up with delicious, homemade pasta dishes that would make people salivate. Homemade noodle, sauce, meatballs…you name it and my grandmother has probably made...
In March it will be five years since my Grandmother passed away and as the holidays pass year year I am reminded how much she loved to celebrate them. She loved spending time with the family, taking in the...
  When it comes to summer menu planning, everyone should have a few good burger recipes in their apron pocket to grill up for a weekend cookout or a quiet night at home. This Ginger Soy Pork Burger with hoisin...
I’m a cheese girl. I love all kinds of cheese – blue cheese, goat’s cheese, stinky cheese, etc. If a person could live off cheese (and wine and bread), I’d be in heaven. So I jumped at the chance...
One of the favorite and most requested meals in our house is tacos. They’re so easy and I’ve never met a person that didn’t like a taco. My husband’s favorite tacos are always steak tacos and we probably either eat...
I love carbs. I'm Italian and they are my food group BFF. But, those carbs go straight to my bootie if I don't watch it. It's disappointing because for me there is no greater comfort food after a long...
I love soups, all kinds of soups. I can eat them all year round, even in the heat of the summer, and I love making leftovers into a bowl of hearty goodness.   For me all holidays provide an opportunity to...
My daughter and I love to create together. Whether it’s practicing writing words together, crafting or cooking, we always bond over the experience of working together and learning together. When I heard that Uncle Ben’s® was hosting the first ever...
While I don't like the idea of "diet" foods, I do adhere to the idea of eating healthy and nutritious foods for most of my meals. I really try to eat foods that are nutritious for me including fish...
