Cheesy Hamburger Ranch Mac and Gnocchi

You may not know this about me, but I am a ranch addict. Heck, I’m addicted to lots of things. Sexy shoes, high dollar handbags, Ryan Gosling.  But ranch I can have an affinity for and not break the bank.  Or my back.  Let’s not go there….I was talking about the shoes, you know. As […]

Deep Fried Sugared Pasta and Strawberry Crunch

Sometimes I just can’t leave well enough alone. Like – pasta is good, right?  And dessert is good…but how often do you have pasta for dessert? Well, I did. I took a perfectly good lasagna noodle and deep fried it, tossed it with powdered sugar, and topped it with simple, sweet,  and sassy strawberry sauce. […]

Kid Friendly Homemade Pasta Sauce–with Tomatoes, Herbs and Onions

KA-MD-pasta.jpg

Well, it’s almost Mother’s Day. I don’t think any child fully realizes the meaning of Mother’s Day until they actually PRODUCE a child. Kid’s ain’t no joke. They are always needing something.  Snot wiped.  Teeth brushed.  A ride.  A bath.  A swingset, a pony, a ball glove, a swimming pool shaped like a turtle.  It’s […]

Mushroom & Baby Pea Penne with Parmesan Truffle Sauce

I hate when I don’t get what I want.  Hate it. There’s a sauce I want.  I’ve mentioned it before – it’s the truffle sauce on the mushroom ravioli that Chef Mike Behmorias serves at The Bank Food and Drink.  Good mercy, I love that pasta.  He’s made fun of me, if you can believe […]

Gruyere Philly Cheesesteak Mac & Cheese

philly-mac-cheese-2

I know, that’s a mouthful. Gruyere Philly Cheesesteak Mac and Cheese. Three very good things are listed in that title:  Wisconsin Gruyere – about the best cheese on the planet if you ask me; Philly Cheesesteak – there’s a reason they are so well known; Mac and Cheese – the ultimate in comfort food.  The […]

Greek Chicken Pasta Salad with Feta and Herbs, from Liz at The Lemon Bowl

Greek Chicken Pasta Salad

I’m thrilled to be guest posting for Susan today. We had the opportunity to meet face-to-face last year during the Ohio Dairy Adventure. Let me tell you –it doesn’t get more intimate that milking cows at 5AM with your fellow bloggers! We had a blast and it was great to finally meet the spunky lady […]

Parmesan, Onions and Mushroom Pasta with Peas and Truffle Oil

barilla-plus-pasta-1

I’ve never met a pasta I didn’t like. You? Tomato sauce. Alfredo. Truffles. Pesto.  Cheese. Cream. Top a bowl of pasta with just about anything – I will eat it. Oh yes, I will eat it. But, that doesn’t mean I don’t love a GREAT pasta dish.  I had one of the best ever just […]

Pass the Pasta…Weeknight Meals Made Easy!

I don’t know about your family, but mine? Well, let’s just say I’m not June Cleaver, and I’m not making dinner for 4 hours a day.  If’ I’m lucky, I pull together dinner in an hour, if I can.  I rarely, if ever, WANT to. Not sure why that is though…I do love to cook.  […]

Spaghetti Popovers

IMG_3347

Popovers. I skipped last week. Good gravy. I’m sorry about that. I’ve been traveling so much that I don’t even know what day it is, and last Thursday came and went with me in California, completely oblivious to the fact that the world was still, in fact, turning.  I’ve gone from Fresno, nearly straight to […]
