When I was little, one of my favorite meals (and still one of my favorite comfort foods) was meatloaf. I didn’t understand why it got such a bad rap. It seemed to be one of those things my friends complained about, that was in books and movies as the worst dinner ever, and I was…

Alfredo sauce is one of those things that I usually only splurge on in restaurants.  Its simple combination of cream, butter, and cheese is downright magical, but also downright indulgent! I always worried that creating a healthier alfredo sauce recipe wouldn’t do the original justice but I’ve found a great combination of ingredients that maintains that creamy…

I have a special love for Cadbury mini-eggs. They remind me of my Mom, who always let me buy the little single serving packs they had near the register at our neighborhood grocery store growing up. To this day I can’t stay away from them and in our house we affectionately refer to them as…

I’ve said this so many times, but lunch is the hardest meal for me. I hate eating alone. I hate eating the same thing every day. I hate making food for one person. But, especially when I’m trying to eat healthier (and save money!), going out every day is terrible in so many ways, and…

I mentioned on Instagram recently that one of my family traditions is baking on Sundays.  Everyone in our family loves taking turns picking something yummy and helping out.  My husband wanted to try this Chocolate Raspberry Layer Cake from King Arthur Flour so we whipped it up last Sunday and it was so good.  They do…

We sometimes call this “Inside-Out” pizza too. They’re garlicky, cheesy little pizza dough balls filled with all of the yummy toppings you’d put on a pizza. To eat, just pop one off and dunk it in marinara sauce. Don’t you love finger food? And don’t you love dunking things? I suppose regular pizza is finger…

So in the past few months, this little local downtown pizza place in my town has become my go-to place when we don’t know where else we want to eat out. They have thin-crust, wood-fired pizza and my go-to is a kid-sized pizza with a side salad. And basically, I get the salad for their croutons….

This easy tortilla soup has been a staple at both of our houses and was in dire need of a makeover so you guys can all see how beautifully delicious it is!  This isn’t like the thick chicken tortilla soup that they have at Chili’s; it’s brothier (is that a word?) a la Cafe Rio or Costa…
