If you tell me you don’t like mozzarella sticks and that you do not have a lactose intolerance I’ll call shenanigans. Seriously. Everyone loves them. Maybe you don’t want to eat them because they are fattening, but you still love them. But there are other hidden dangers of the mozzarella stick: the gluten in the […]

This salad is about as easy as it gets to prepare. The trickiest part is finding good quality ingredients. This is going to be true whenever you are making anything that has only a small number of ingredients. Mediocre items don’t have anything to hide behind so everything has got to be as good as […]
So, you have the basil pesto recipe from yesterday and now you need something to do with it… of course you could toss it into some pasta or risotto but you want to do something special with it? Make this salad. It’s a meal in itself that makes me feel good about my attempts to […]
A few years ago I discovered the ready made pizza dough in the grocery store. Normally I would avoid something pre-made like this, but after reading the ingredient list (and having one go bad quickly in my fridge from lack of use) I realized it was made from real food items and not just a […]
This is one of those iconic dishes of Italian American cuisine up there with spaghetti and meatballs. This is one of the ultimate comfort foods for me. On a cold winter’s night opening the oven to its warm bubbling cheese and tomato sauce is enough to make it almost worth it that it’s cold out. […]
This must be one of the most calorically horrifying and fattening things that I ever make/eat. And that’s saying something from a person who doesn’t really bat an eye at recipes that call for whole cups of whipping cream. Remember that cream of spinach soup? Or how about this past weekend’s peanut butter chocolate krispie […]
Ok, yeah, so it’s spinach. But it’s still the farthest thing from healthy you can imagine for spinach. Except, for maybe the cream of spinach soup I posted back in January. You’ll know when you taste this dip that it would be possible to eat the whole thing yourself if you could just get everyone […]
I know what you are thinking… “Um, you posted this, like, 2 months ago, right?” and then you will start thinking, “Oh, no. She’s ALREADY repeating? I’m done with this blog.” But WAIT! Here’s the thing… this one is different, it has vegetables.
If you like pasta, tomato sauce, and cheese and you like being comforted by food I think it’s kind of tough to get better than this. It’s ooey gooey baked goodness. It’s like a pasta version of pizza! So, in other words, I’ve died and gone to heaven and it’s full of pizza/pasta hybrids.
