I’ve probably said this before but tilapia is my families favorite fish. It’s light, easy to prepare, mild flavored and doesn’t stink up my house when I cook it. Oh and Isaac likes it too which is a plus in my book. I’m always looking for different ways to prepare and flavor tilapia and this baked parmesan tilapia is a winner. The fish is seasoned
I had my baby last week and I’d expect for the food cravings to disappear but nope, I’ve been craving pasta salad since I left the hospital! During the summer time I could seriously eat pasta salad every. Single. Day. I’m always on the lookout for yummy pasta salad recipes. This taco pasta salad is one of my favs. It has a light, refreshing taste
Baked spaghetti pie is one of those recipes that I always seem to forget about. Thankfully as I was cleaning out my recipe drawer and trying to think of something to make for dinner I stumbled upon this recipe. I just couldn’t say no to noodles tossed in a creamy four-cheese mixture, pressed into a pie dish, topped with MORE cheese, baked and then smothered
What it is about a roasted chicken that makes me so happy? Something about it’s rustic golden appearance and savory aroma is just so darn welcoming. I roast chickens pretty often just for the heck of it. I don’t need to have a recipe in mind because I know you can always think of something to do with a roasted chicken like chicken tacos
I wasn’t introduced to Hamburger Helper until I got married. It was part of my husband’s pre-marriage meal rotation which consisted of 3 meals; Hamburger Helper, spaghetti with sauce and cereal. Seriously, that was his diet. Bless his heart. You can’t go wrong with a homemade skillet dinner on a busy day! I grew up with a meal very similar to Cheeseburger Macaroni
My cousin Jin once said “I would be scared to cook for you”. Now I don’t know if she meant because she thinks I’m picky or because she thinks I’m some kind of kitchen goddess. Truth be told I’m super simple and I rarely make anything fancy schmancy. My taste buds are very friendly and accepting : ) So I’ll be waiting on my dinner
Are you sooooo ready for spring like I am? I get like this every year and start counting down the days around this time. Spring makes me happy, even though my allergies never fail to take me out. The pretty flowers, sunshine, and longer days are worth it. As soon as the weather starts to warm up slightly I instantly begin craving light, fresh
I’ve been in such a cooking mood lately. I think the cooking drought has passed, yeah I know I’ve been saying that in every post but seriously this time. Last night I made no-bake chocolate cookies with Isaac and today I made these super delishy & cheesy chicken and spinach stuffed shells for lunch. It was a welcomed change from my usual italian stuffed shells
I went over my cousins house for a bloggers meetings and she served up these hearty, hot turkey and cheese sandwiches. She’d just gotten off of work and whipped these bad boys up in a flash. I LOVED them! It’s my uncle BB’s recipe and I was so shocked when she told me it was really just turkey lunch meat, bacon and cheese! No way!
Ok ok I heard you sheesh! Some of you RAVED about the herb roasted turkey recipe I put up a few years ago and some of you said “uhhh Monique I love you and everything but that turkey is just toooooo much work with all that flipping and basting!” lol. So I thought it was time that I put up a super easy, moist, juicy,
If you would have told me 5 years ago that I would be a lover of butternut squash soup I would have laughed…hysterically. I am not a fan of butternut squash. Period. Oh now, don’t get me wrong, I want to be very badly. I’ve tried a lot of butternut squash dishes and hated them all, that is, until I tasted this roasted butternut sqaush
I have been nailing the mexican chicken soup at Casa Grande lately. They are not shy about loading it with tons of chicken, avocado, fresh veggies and cilantro and the portions are huge. After I had this soup twice in one week I figured it was time I learned how to make it at home. I knew it would be pretty easy to recreate this
“How I lose 10 pounds in 7 days with this cabbage soup diet AKA Military diet!” Watch me make this cabbage soup from start to finish! I’m going to Disneyland next week and decided that I didn’t want to take my muffin top with me, especially since I have this cute form-fitting shirt that I want to wear so bad…. WITHOUT SPANX!! When I need
I’ve been on a really big soup kick lately. I just can’t seem to get enough of the stuff. My soup craving actually started back in August but it was just way too hot to fool with soup. Now that the weather is all rainy and cool, soup has been a staple in my house. This week it’s this easy, creamy broccoli cheddar soup!
I must be in a nostalgic mood these past few weeks because I’ve been craving dishes from my past that I haven’t had in decades, like this cheesy zucchini rice, no bake cheesecake and now lemon hot salt chicken!! It’s fun reliving the past through food isn’t it? I’m not sure if lemon hot salt chicken is the
