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.

As you open the box, you see a sandwich, an apple, maybe a bag of chips, and – yes! – a delicious little treat. You may see a different treat than me in that box,...

Forget seconds – your guests will want the whole thing! Everyone loves holidays, both for the gatherings of friends and family and for the food (honestly, it’s mostly the food 🙂 ). As a foodie, though, there are so many other special days on the calendar that justify cooking, and baking, and recipe experimenting! There’s practically a national month or day for all your favorite treats: National Chocolate Mousse Day in April, National Hot...

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

This Chicken and Wild Rice Soup is lusciously creamy and loaded with chunks of chicken, great veggies and wonderful wild rice mix! This is Comfort Food at its Best! Soup is easily one of my favorite dishes. I love it year-round. Even in the heat of summer, I often have a pot of soup cooking on my stove. And this love for soup isn’t just a passion for one specific kind—I’m a fan of all kinds. I love thick, cheesy soups. I love hearty chicken noodle soups. I love vegetable soups, meaty chili, and whatever else I can get my...
