Garlic Roasted Tomato Spaghetti with Crispy Parmesan Topping

I love nothing more on my spaghetti than chunky, slow roasted tomatoes that I roast with an entire head of garlic in some olive oil and seasonings. I used an entire head of garlic to ensure there was no lack of flavor in this dish. It paid off to peel and mince that entire head,…

Italian Meatballs

Yum! That’s the word I have to start this blog post. I usually don’t bake my meatballs in the oven. More often than not, I form them and let them cook and simmer in a red sauce for awhile on the stovetop. I also think if I cook them in the oven, they will get…

Tomato Tart

As I cleaned and reorganized our refrigerator on Saturday, I noticed I had a Pillsbury Pizza Dough to use. I didn’t really feel like making a pizza, per se, so decided I’d make a tomato tart that we could use as a side to our leftover chili as well as a main course for lunch…

Ground Turkey Asian Lettuce Wraps

A little over a month ago, I made Dennis and I ground turkey lettuce wraps for dinner. I loved the flavor so much (OMG! They were soooo good!), I immediately texted a picture of them to my sisters-in-law to show them what I had made for dinner, knowing they would both love it. Donna had…

Whole Grain Beef Lasagne

Yesterday was our daughter’s first day of school … her first day as a college junior. I can’t even believe she’s 20 years old and in the second half of her college career. As I always do on the first day of school, I asked her what she’d like for dinner. Kylie requested to celebrate…

Olive Topped Swordfish Steaks

My husband is not a big lover of fish, but there are a few he does enjoy. One of those is swordfish. While I was at the butcher last week, they had some really nice looking swordfish steaks. I had him wrap up a couple for me and I immediately headed to the condiment aisle…

Skin-on, Bone-in Cast Iron Skillet Chicken Breasts

When I saw skin-on, bone-in chicken breasts at the market the other day, I decided to grab a package. It seems I mostly cook skinless, boneless chicken breasts and more often than not, the thin sliced breasts. I was in the mood to change things up a bit and that’s what I did. Last night…

Ground Beef and Corn Tacos

It’s Tuesday and we all know what that means … Taco Tuesday! I actually made these tacos last week using ground turkey, but wanted to try my spice mixture on lean ground beef and see which one I liked better. Normally, I’m a ground turkey girl, but I have to say I loved this seasoning…

Salmon Tacos

Dennis and I have both been craving salmon, so I decided I’d make salmon for dinner tonight. Dennis asked if we could make salmon tacos and I was all over that. I actually thought about making salmon tacos for Cinco de Mayo, but we ended up going to a great restaurant called Tocaya here in…

Mexican Lasagne

Are you looking for something tasty to include in your Mexican Monday or Taco Tuesday rotation? I have a recipe that I think will satisfy your tastebuds for either of those nights, or any night, actually. I’d been wanting to try and make a Mexican lasagne for a couple weeks now, so finally got around…
