cheesy chicken pesto pizza

Cheese. It should be in its own food category along with bacon. They just make everything better. Plain and simple. The question is how do you like your cheese? Cut into small chunks on top of a cracker? Thinly sliced to go with a nice glass of wine? Just by itself? Melted or broiled...

Broken lasagna casserole #newtradish

Lasagna noodle casserole for a NewTraDish recipe. I was invited to be a brand representative for Ragú® and have been compensated for this post for SocialStars.  All opinions are my own. Sometimes I get so caught up in the hustle and bustle of little things that I never just take the time to sit...

white chocolate chip cereal cookies

White chocolate chip cereal cookies that are soft, chewy and full of crunchy goodness. Cookies aren’t waistline friendly, but man they are delicious.  The other day I was searching through my plethora of cookbooks stashed in my office/playroom.  I decided to take a glance at Momofuku milk bar’s cookbook.  I’ve never actually been there...

Apple scones with apple pie spiced icing

If you haven’t noticed it’s officially fall. There are pumpkins everywhere, talk about Halloween costumes, pumpkin spice this and pumpkin spice that (guilty), the fall foliage is appearing, mum flowers and football season. My favorite season is here and I love every bit of it, except for the multitude of rainy days. In years...

One pot chicken orzo soup

I live in West Texas and for the past several years there was hardly a drop of water that fell from the sky.  We were in serious drought mode with water restrictions all over the place. And then 2014 hit. We are basically a desert rainforest if that makes sense. We are in the...
