• Tortellini w Spinach & Tomato


    Tortellini with Spinach & Tomato

    Easy dinner idea coming at you today! I found this tortellini recipe on Pinterest a while ago and wanted to share it today.  It’s tortellini with garlic, onion, tomatoes, and spinach. So easy! I followed the recipe (linked above) and just made a few minor changes. I made 3 cheese tortellini from the grocery store, I used 3 roma tomatoes since that’s all I had, I used chicken broth instead of vegetable stock, and I used baby spinach instead of regular spinach. Pretty minor changes and everything else was the same! For this recipe you’ll need: tortellini olive oil onion roma tomatoes (the recipe calls for 4 and I used…

    BBQ Salmon

    If you’ve been following my food posts for a while then you know I enjoy sharing easy recipes. This recipe is literally the easiest recipe ever. It’s fitting to share this salmon recipe today since I just ate salmon for dinner last night, although not this recipe. This salmon recipe is not only easy, but it’s great if you have leftover salmon and bbq sauce – or if you just happen to have both on hand. I found this recipe via Pinterest last year. All you need for this recipe is: salmon filets salt & pepper bbq sauce That’s it! Place the salmon, skin side down, on a foil lined…

  • Teriyaki Shrimp & Pineapple Parcel


    Teriyaki Shrimp & Pineapple Parcel

    Food made in parcels, whether it’s parchment paper or foil, are always easy to make and easy for cleanup. Today I’m sharing a parcel recipe that I’ve tried from the Food Network! This teriyaki shrimp and pineapple recipe is so tasty and easy to put together. I followed the Food Network recipe except for a few things. I made my own rice instead of using quick rice, I used a yellow bell pepper instead of red, I didn’t use cilantro because I hate cilantro, and lastly I halved the recipe. For the recipe you need: rice (recipe uses quick-cooking rice, but I just used my regular jasmine) pineapple tidbits frozen…

  • Mediterranean Zoodles


    Mediterranean Zoodles

    Are you a zucchini noodle fan or are you trying to cut down on carbs? I’ve been interested in trying zucchini noodles for along time, but just never did until last year. I got a Wegmans booklet/magazine in the mail and they had a recipe for Mediterranean Veggie Noodles. If you don’t have a Wegmans near you, it’s an awesome grocery store – my favorite. It was actually voted best supermarket in the US! Anyway, I don’t have a spiralizer, but Wegmans has pre-cut zucchini noodles so I picked up a pack of fresh zoodles. I followed the recipe provided by Wegmans (linked above) and the only thing I changed…

  • BLT Pasta Salad


    BLT Pasta Salad

    It’s a week til the Super Bowl. Do you have plans for it? If you’re hosting or if you’re attending a party where you want to bring something, then I have a food idea for you! Normally, people think of cheesy, hearty things for Super Bowl foods. Think, buffalo dip, layered bean dips, etc. And then football party foods like subs. As I was going through my food photos of things I had on my camera roll to share with you on here, I saw this BLT Pasta Salad that I made last year and thought it would be a great party dish. I found this recipe on Pinterest last…

  • Slow Cooker Butter Chicken


    Slow Cooker Butter Chicken

    I love butter chicken and I found the best slow cooker recipe for it. It is so good that I’ve made it multiple times since I found the recipe last year. I think the key is that it’s a slow cooker recipe because it really allows those flavors to develop. I follow this recipe that I found via Pinterest. I follow the recipe exactly, except I don’t garnish with cilantro cause yuck! I’m one of those people that can’t stand cilantro. I tell this to everyone who asks me about it, but there have been studies that show that for some people they just genetically cannot stand cilantro and it…

  • Kimchi Fried Rice


    Kimchi Fried Rice

    Years ago I tried kimchi fried rice for the first time at Mogo, a Korean fusion taco place, and it was amazing. Since the place isn’t very close to me, I wanted to try to make it myself. I found this recipe last year and while when I make it it’s not as pretty as in the photos of the original recipe or when I’ve gotten it at Mogo it’s still tasty. When I took these photos (last year) I followed the recipe, but I had extra rice so I just increased the ingredients by a little bit. The only other thing I changed was I kept the kimchi pieces…

  • Sicilian Zucchini Boats


    Sicilian Zucchini Boats

    I’m sharing a recipe today that I found online and have loved so much that I’ve made it multiple times – Sicilian Zucchini Boats! Once you make this once or twice, you get the hang of it and can cater it to your taste or eyeball the amount of ingredients. For the exact recipe measurements, you can click on the link above to the recipe I follow. For the recipe, you will need: zucchinis (halved) salt plum tomato (diced) garlic clove (chopped) parsley (I only use this if I already have it on hand) crumbled feta (I have used block feta before and just crumbled it up myself) panko olive…

  • Slow Cooker Italian Chicken & Potatoes


    Slow Cooker Italian Chicken & Potatoes

    It’s slow cooker season! Well, to be honest I use my slow cooker any time of the year. But people in general tend to use their slow cookers more often during the colder months. Maybe because slow cooker recipes tend to be heartier fare like stews, chilies, etc. Months ago I made a Slow Cooker Italian Chicken & Potatoes that I found on Pinterest and I thought now was a great time to share it. The recipe says you can use chicken breasts or thighs. I know a lot of people like thighs, but I like chicken breast because I like white meat. Chicken breast does tend to dry out…

  • Chicken Stuffing Bake


    Chicken Stuffing Bake

    Happy Saturday! I’m back with another recipe post and I have to preface this by saying this chicken stuffing bake is not the prettiest, but it does taste good! I found this recipe through Pinterest and I followed the recipe except I halved it. Even after halving the recipe, the dish came out more liquid-y/runny than the photos of the original recipe. I read a few comments that said it came out runny, but those people had used homemade cream of chicken soup and I used canned so I thought I’d be okay. Nope. It was still runny when I made it so it’s not the prettiest dish, but as…
