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). Béchamel sauce is a classic white sauce that has a touch of nutmeg, which works perfectly with the nutty flavor of the mushrooms. I love this dish for …

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 …

My goodness gracious, this dish was just delicious. In the midst of summer, this dish was so light and refreshing with a huge burst of flavor and spice. Not to mention very healthy! This recipe was given to me by my lovely friend, Cari. She is the most unbelievable wife and mother and is always looking …

This oven “fried” mustard chicken and summer slaw is a fresh and healthy playful twist on your classic fried chicken and coleslaw. It allows you to enjoy that favorite summer dish, without all the guilt. This is a play off of the Barefoot Contessa’s (aka Ina Garten, aka today’s Julia Child, aka my hero) mustard …

This dinner is such comfort food. It is so perfect for a rainy day, or when you get home from a hard day’s work and need something hot and filling. And this sauce… Oohhh, this sauce. You don’t even need the meatballs. You can just throw in the egg noodles and call it a day. …

For this recipe, I did meatballs with tomato sauce over zoodles.  But, you can use any sauce or any base. This recipe makes A LOT. You can easily have leftovers …

My fabulous co-worker, and fellow foodie, Save-the-Day-Renee, picked me up some fresh and delicious Chinese dumpling wrappers at a local Asian food market that she frequents. I have had a serious hankering for pan friend dumplings recently, and Renee, as usual, saved the day when she brought me delicate and flaky dumpling skins. If you …

This meatloaf is a serious, I mean serious, crowd pleaser, and one of The Cheese’s FAVE meals. He will eat this all week and then ask for it again on Sunday. Oh, Cheese. For this recipe, I supplement the ground turkey breast with some chicken or turkey sausage in order to give it some extra …
Lasagna
  Lasagna, while seemingly labor intensive, is actually very quick and easy to prepare. Because of the amazing “no boil” lasagna noodle, there is no more slaving over hot pots of boiling water. You literally just layer the lasagna and cook! I almost always make lasagna when we are having company. It can be thrown in …
