Tortellini Al Forno

Think those chain restaurants have a great tortellini al forno? Just wait until you try this recipe for rich, home cooked pasta. I’m a home cook, and I love experimenting with flavors. But that’s not to say I don’t eat out once in a while. It’s not only relaxing to me, but I’ve found that it’s a (sneaky?) way to get new ideas for recipes to try at home. That’s why I was so surprised when I tried the tortellini al forno mini pasta bowl at Olive Garden this past weekend. This rich pasta dish is one I’ve been...

Easy Potato Soup

This delicious Easy Potato Soup is comfort food at its Best! Super quick and easy to make. It’s like a warm hug from Grandma in a bowl! I love hot soup on a cold day. Sitting under a soft blanket in a comfy chair, sipping spoonful after spoonful of something delicious and warm, while a cold wind swirls outside—is there anything better? There are lots of soup recipes I love. It would be absolutely out of the question for me to ever name my “favorite” soup; I could never pick. I could maybe, maybe come up with a top...

Zuppa Toscana Recipe

I’ve always loved going to the Olive Garden. It’s the perfect place to take the family. It has a kid friendly environment and, even better,  kid friendly food so they’re happy too. Plus, there’s a great selection of pastas, so hubby’s happy. Then, factor in all the delicious soups, bread sticks and the fact that I can get a decent glass of wine, I’m happy!!! Everyone always gets to order something they love. Pasta, soup, salad and ohhhh the bread sticks! But my all time favorite thing on the whole menu has to be the Zuppa Toscana. Who doesn’t absolutely love...

Jalapeno Bacon Cornbread

I love cornbread! Honestly, I could eat it virtually every day and be a very happy person. I bake it all year long, regardless of the season. Even in the hottest, dog days of summer, the one thing I’ll turn on my oven for is to bake cornbread. This recipe is a variation of my favorite, sweet old fashioned cornbread. One thing that I love about this recipe is that it does not use buttermilk as an ingredient. Listen, I have other recipes that include buttermilk and I love them too! It’s just nice to have a recipe like this...

Creamy Artichoke and Chicken Pasta

Are you looking for a new, delicious, and comforting pasta dish? Well, here it is! I soooo loved this pasta. It has a refreshing, not too heavy, fairly light sauce (I mean light in taste-definitely not light in calories!!!). It’s loaded with chunks of chicken , bacon, artichokes, and capers. Come on! How good does that sound? I saw this recipe on another blog and tweaked it by adding more goodies and adjusting the ingredients of the sauce. The whole fam went crazy for this and asked that it go into our permanent dinner rotation. Love this one! Print...
