    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…

    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

    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…

    Wild Rice & Mushroom Pilaf

    I recently shared a cranberry, apple, pecan wild rice which is one of my favorite meals I’ve made via Pinterest. Today’s wild rice pilaf is another one I found on Pinterest and is delicious as well. Although it does come second to the cranberry one! Nonetheless I wanted to share it on here. This wild rice & mushroom pilaf recipe that I found on Pinterest is great. I followed the recipe with two exceptions. Instead of vegetable broth, I used chicken broth. The other change I made was adding a 4th mushroom. The recipe calls for button, cremini, and shitaki, but I added in a 4th mushroom – king oyster.…
