Cavatappi with Creamy Tomato Sauce

 Savor the flavors of Florence in my Cavatappi with Creamy Tomato Sauce. No passport required! As some of you may know, I’ve dubbed myself a “reluctant exerciser,” and finding motivation is essential when you’re in the kitchen all day with amazing food. For some, that little nudge into the gym may be a great playlist blasting in their ears; for others it’s an encouraging friend who holds you accountable for your daily walk. I’ve found inspiration in a powerful, four-word mantra that works on even the most non-motivated days, that answers the question “why” when I’d rather dig into...

Mississippi Pot Roast

Mississippi Pot Roast is a new classic – a simple but hearty, homey dish packed with flavor and the promise of a satisfying supper. Your crock pot does all the work, and you get all the credit!  The slow cooker was introduced in the early 1970s (Rival’s “Crock Pot” being the first one on the market), and I’d be willing to bet the first meal ever made in that new working-mom miracle was a Sunday pot roast. “Set it and forget it,” is still a busy home cook’s battle cry decades later, so I’m sharing a recipe for Mississippi...

Chicken Alfredo

This super easy Chicken Alfredo is ultra creamy, rich, decadent and just may be the best pasta recipe ever! A good pasta recipe is an essential for every family cook. A warm, hearty pasta and chicken dish lovingly draped with rich, creamy sauce – red or white – is just about as good as authentic homemade food gets. I still remember sitting down to a plateful of my mother’s spaghetti when I was a kid. As an adult, I have tried a good number of pasta recipes. I have literally sampled dozens of different sauces: pesto, red sauce, and...
