Oddly enough there aren't to many good Italian-American restaurants on the side of town J and I live. Luckily, Maggiano's is one of the few. You can get good food (and a lot of it) for a nice price. Especially since they give you a 'to-go' pasta for free when you order a pasta at the restaurant.Read More
I'm a huge fan of cooking magazines. I love flipping through the pages of Food Network Magazine & CookingLight and ear-marking all the delicious recipes I want to try out. I love sites and blogs to find new and interesting meals to make, but there's something about paper. Cookbooks and magazines are still my go-to's.Read More
I certainly haven't posted a recipe in a while! I guess this just goes to show that I haven't had much time to try out new things. Luckily, for good reason, as twin sis and I's real estate career has taken off recently.Read More
You know those days when you're running around working, Christmas shopping, cleaning the house, doing laundry, etc. and the last thing you want to do is make something that takes an hour to cook and prep?Read More
I seriously love this recipe. It's one of my favorite go-to's for when J and I want to eat something delicious, but uncomplicated to make.
I first had this meal when I visited my now in-laws' house for one of the first times. I just had to have the recipe, and thankfully Momma L sent it over ASAP.Read More
Because we've been out-of-town so many weekends lately, J and I jump at the opportunity to spend quality time together at home on the weekends we don't have plans. We realized we really enjoy making meals together, so when we do have a night to relax and unwind, cooking together helps us connect. The wine helps, too. :PRead More
"Put your hand upon a chip. When I dip, you dip, we dip!"
We headed to the lake house again this past weekend to spend time with my in-laws and parents. Mom and I whipped up two great dips prior to our guests arriving.Read More
There's not too many types of food I love more than Tex-Mex food. Cheese, deep-fried chips, cheese, beans, salsa, cheese... all that just gets my taste buds watering.
Of course, it's not the healthiest of cuisines and I tend to lose all sense of self-control when they place a basket of chips in front of my face. I'm like a lion devouring a wildebeest.Read More
I'm starting to realize that at my age, my life is not my own. My weekends have been dedicated to everyone else's lives, basically. At least their major life events. Engagement Parties, Weddings, Baby Showers, you name it, we're going to them for the rest of the year and next.Read More
Before I get started on tonight's recipe, I'd like to give a shout out to my Aunt Linda for trying the Apricot Chicken recipe I posted last week. It looked amazing! She paired it with rice and sautéed spinach, which I will definitely have to do next time I make it. For all those who haven't had a chance to whip it up, tonight is the night!Read More
Yesterday my mom, a.k.a my unofficial wedding planner, and I met with my official wedding planner, flower vendor, and decor vendor to see a mock- up of our reception tables and flower arrangements.Read More
