Cheesy Baked Pasta

  Today I’m sharing another pasta dish with you, courtesy of our sponsor Skinner® pasta.  I hope you’ll love it!   You may recall that a few days ago, I posted about a Texas themed pasta – a dish that we all adore here at our home just outside of Houston.  It’s become a regular on the […]

Easy Texas Lonestar Pasta Bolognese

Today I’m sharing a pasta dish with you, courtesy of our sponsor Skinner® pasta.  I hope you’ll love it! As you may know, I’m now a Texan.  Becoming a Texan has been easier than I imagined, as coming from a very proud state (both Virginia and West Virginia), I know how to puff up my chest and […]

Brazilian Pasta Salad

Gold Medal Recipe, kids. In case you’ve been napping, this summer holds an exciting event…the Olympics.  This year – it’s in RIO.  Can you imagine?  The Summer Games in magical Brazil, in the shadows of Sugarloaf and around the corner from Iguazu Falls?  In Rio, a city that is so robust and alive, full of […]

Easy Macaroni Salad…and Better Bakery

I am a huge fan of bready things.  Rolls. Pretzels. Burgers, calzones, subs, pizza.  If it’s yeasty, I want it. I love to make bread, but let’s be honest…it takes time. Lots of time.  The kneading, the rising. It’s devoting an entire Saturday to the kitchen when you really just want to nap and Netflix.  […]

Spaghetti with Crab in Champagne Lemon Cream Sauce

It is almost 2016. Time for me to finally, finally, get my things in order.  I should probably fill out that 2015 Day Planner I just HAD TO HAVE, but, why bother?  I reckon it’s a little late for that now. I’ll just be better in 2016.  I will start it off right.  Get back […]

Silky Smooth Macaroni and Cheese with Toasted Bread Crumbs

It is rare that I am impressed by macaroni and cheese in a restaurant. I know, as a foodie, I am supposed to turn my nose up at ordering such a childish dish, but come on now…we all know that a great bowl of mac & cheese has the ability to act as a time […]

Blackberry Ginger Pasta Salad

Do you ever surprise yourself with your own creativity? Me either. But, one fine day, Jon called home and begged me to make a “yummy pasta salad.”  And I was like, Heck no, I only want to make a nasty pasta salad.  Because that’s how I roll. Yucktastic is where it’s at. I kid, I […]

Garden Fresh Summer Pasta Salad

Corn. Tomatoes. Cucumbers.  Fresh greens and herbs. What could spell out summer any better? Well, you could add pasta. Summer is all about ease.  Easy eating, easy prep, easy clean up.  It’s hot, y’all, so let’s keep it simple.  No one wants to be trapped indoors over a stovetop or scorching oven.  So what do […]
