On-The-Go Breakfast Muffins

On-The-Go Breakfast Muffins

People seem to like having muffin sized breakfast bites or the idea of breakfast on the go. But for those watching their calories, hash browns aren’t too forgiving and some folks just don’t like runny eggs. So today I’ll be making a scrambled egg variation […]

Cheesy Hot Italian Sausage Pasta Bake

Cheesy Hot Italian Sausage Pasta Bake

I loved the clumps of spicy, hot meat so much, I decided to make a pasta bake out of it. And what’s a pasta bake without some cheese? So there’s just enough cheese to have some cheese string action going but feel free to add […]

Skillet Shepherd’s Pie

Skillet Shepherd’s Pie

Spring is almost here and that means more comfort food, casseroles, slow cookers, soups and stews for the blog. And speaking of comfort food, if there’s one thing I know how to do, it’s how to make a good Shepherd’s pie. I like my filling […]

I don’t know about you, but I love a good Alfredo. It’s rich, it’s definitely not good for you, but it’s oh so yummy. And why shouldn’t we love it? It has all the goodness of butter, cream and Parmesan. Creamy. Cheesy. Yummy. So today […]

Stir-Fry Mixed Vegetables

Stir-Fry Mixed Vegetables

I just love the explosion of color on the plate. It actually makes vegetables look yummy. Not to mention the variety of textures there are: the soft sponginess of mushrooms, crisp broccoli florets, ridged baby corn and crunchy carrots. Pretty simple stuff. Remember to add […]

Grilled Sriracha Hot Wings

Grilled Sriracha Hot Wings

These hot wings will make your mouth water. Seriously. If you don’t believe me, grill them up yourselves and then come back to me after you’re done salivating. It has the magic of Sriracha with other stuff to give it a decent depth of flavor: […]
