Creamy Lemon Asparagus Pasta

If you have ever seen any of my other pasta blog posts, then you might notice that I tend to use a lot of the same ingredients, but vary the recipe a bit here and there. I also tend to use what I have in the fridge rather than going and buying specific ingredients. So…

Green Chili Rice w/ Chicken

I really, really tried to use everything in my house before going to the grocery store, and because of this I have been getting pretty creative. I had one chicken breast, a bag of frozen mixed vegetables, frozen spicy green chilis, some chicken broth, and rice…and hence the name of this dish. First, I cut the chicken…

Ground beef, onion & mashed potato pierogi.

When I was a sophomore in college, my boyfriend at the time (now my fiancĂ©) was living with one of our great friends, and he was OBSESSED with pierogi. Like, he basically ate it every night for dinner, mostly because it was super easy to warm up the frozen kind. So now anytime I even…

Butternut Squash & Asparagus Bisque

The other night, I was trying to think of what to eat for dinner, and all I knew was I needed to use the asparagus in the fridge. I was kind of sick of the normal ways I cook asparagus so I decided to invent something, and that happened to be this super tasty bisque that…

Parsley, Turmeric & Pepper Pasta

Strawberry Rhubarb Cookies

Last year I got a rhubarb plant from a friend, planted it, and forgot about it. Then this year it came back, happy as can be, thriving and taking up so much room with those massive leaves! I am an amateur when it comes to rhubarb. I think the only time I had tried it…

Chicken Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers

I am attending a wedding this Thursday, and the dress that I rented for the event is very fitted. I was nervous about that fact, so I decided to give up gluten for two weeks, and all I can say is, thank goodness I am not gluten intolerant. It is so hard to not eat…

Colorado Green Chili

I have been driven mad with trying to find the perfect recipe that compares to the green chili we get here in Colorado. If you have never had it, then you are missing out, I’m obsessed! There are two places in particular that have the very best green chili, and I am trying to copy…

Pearled Farrow w. Grilled pork and Brussel sprouts

I bought Pearled Farrow for the first time and started looking on pinterest for a recipe with farrow and pork. I was so unimpressed with all the options that I decided I just needed to invent my own recipe, adhering to all my needs. I’m so glad I did, because this lightly creamy, flavorful dish…

Orange Heart Ravioli

Well, it’s not truly pink, or red, or orange… so I want to call it Salmon colored Heart Ravioli, but then people glimpsing a read would think there is Salmon inside the ravioli.. So we will go with Orange Heart Shaped Ravioli! These adorable heart shaped ravioli are colored with tomato paste, and are packed…
