This cheese sauce works for sooo many dishes. You can pour it over cooked pasta to make macaroni and cheese, drizzle it over nachos, or incorporate it into a casserole like Cheesy Turkey Casserole!  Start by melting 2 TB of butter. When the butter is melted, add 2 TB of flour. Whisk the flour into …

Grilled butternut squash and carrots over greens with pine nuts and dried cranberries. Need I say more? Healthy, easy to make and just packed with flavor.  Boom. Trifecta. Now eat this.    I got these baby butternut squashes at my grocery store.              I mean, how cute are these little puppies. If you are using …

Have I mentioned it’s fall? Because it is. So, bring on the squash!  For a perfect light fall dinner, or appetizer, just imagine tangy basil pesto spread between layers of tender squash and topped with warm, roasty toasty tomatoes, garlic and a sprinkling of pine nuts. Now stop imagining and make this! It was so …

It’s fall. sigh I love fall. Just love it. So, let’s do fall. Let’s do a luscious mushroom lasagna with creamy white sauce (also known as béchamel).

My mother initially told me to make this salad to serve alongside the Caramelized Onion and Gruyere Quiche I was making for brunch.

Easiest. Dish. Eva. I made an impromptu dish tonight for The Cheese and I to snack on while we waited for chicken meatballs to bake in the oven. The options were: 1) eat our hands; or 2) make something to snack on. I went with option two. I had a bunch of snap peas leftover …

My amazing friend Christy and I spent our Saturday morning drinking champagne and making fig preserves. We share many things in common, but one monumental aspect of our friendship is that we are both fanatic about figs. Figs have brought us closer together and truly made us realize that we have an everlasting bond. Thank you, …

It’s late summer and okra is in season! This classic southern side dish is so hearty and delicious, I eat it all by itself spooned over some brown rice. However, it is delicious paired with some grilled pork chops, chicken, or fish. This version is made with bacon only because my husband, The Cheese, needs …

I had a version of this salad today at brunch and really felt the need to re-create it. It is so light and fresh, especially in the midst of summer when watermelon is in season. This is the easiest salad in the world. All the ingredients compliment one another perfectly. I was a little scared …
