Ratatouille

I am a big steak and potato kinda girl. But I also love getting my veggies on. Sometimes I don’t feel satisfied when eating just veggies, but then in walks ratatouille. No, I am not talking about the movie, Ratatouille. Even though that movie is so cute. I am talking […]

Mediterranean Inspired Pizza

This pizza is not your traditional pizza with tomato sauce and cheese on a pizza dough. This might become my new favorite pizza and that is saying something. I tossed out the classic pizza dough and replaced it with Naan bread. If you have never had Naan bread it is […]

Autumn Apples Everywhere

Ever have an apple pie that had a flakey buttery crust on the outside but was apple mush inside? Well, that is probably due to the fact that the pie was made with apples that tasted great but weren’t meant for baking. All apples come from trees, but not all […]

French Crêpes

I have wanted to make crepes for as long as I can remember. But I am not a delicate egg flipper so there was no way I was going to try to make these. Surprising enough I didn’t rip a single one. It’s all in the wrist! lol So, with […]

Apple Cinnamon Raisin Baked Apples

Getting a hot and healthy breakfast is something many of us strive for. But our hectic weekday mornings can be tricky. Most the time it’s just easier to hit the drive-through on the way work or school. If I told you that in less than seven minutes you can have […]

Brussel Sprout & Ham Quiche

Making a quiche is one of the most inexpensive meals you can make that is still healthy for you. When your budget gets tight, you start getting creative with meals, and quiches are great for creative meals! Usually I make mini-quiches when we are cooking for a large group of […]

Easy Fluffy Biscuits

Living in the South, you are required to have a made-from-scratch biscuit recipe, and everyone’s grandma has the best one. Well not to brag, but these biscuits are the bee’s knees. They are light, fluffy, and great with jam and honey or smothered with sausage gravy. When my family was […]

General Tso’s Chicken

This is one of my spiciest meals. I’m not a fan of spicy foods. Tacos are usually where my tolerance level maxes out. But this, I will devour. It has spice and is packed with flavor. I even made this healthier by cutting down on the oil and not frying […]

Croissants

This recipe is not for the weak of heart. It is a lot of work. I highly suggest reading the directions two or three times. At least two days worth of work, but day one is just mixing the poolish together and let it sit over night. Day two is […]

Cranberry-Orange Muffins

My husband is crazy for cranberries and oranges. During the fall when oranges are everywhere he will buy a box of oranges, and we’ll make huge batches of marmalade. Then I made the mistake one year of adding cranberries, now that is the only flavor combo he wants. I honestly […]
