Some of my favorite days are spent in the kitchen cooking with my mom. Last year, we were preparing for a summer picnic and tasked with making a potato salad to accompany the rest of the BBQ food. After scouring the Internet for recipes, we finally decided to wing it and make up our own. This recipe is the result of that and it’s been a staple in our family ever since. I recently brought this potato salad to a 4th of July BBQ where it was a hit. Luckily, I made way too much, so we had tons of leftovers!
Chili is one of my favorite meals to cook – not only because it’s delicious, but also because it makes enough to have leftovers the remainder of the week. This turkey chili is hearty, full of flavor and will have you craving seconds every time.
Over the past year, Asian cuisine has become one of my favorites. I can’t get enough of potstickers, dumplings, noodle dishes – you name it. Because of this newfound love, I was inspired to make homemade potstickers. These pork potstickers were incredibly delicious and relatively simple to make. The only somewhat difficult part was crimping the potstickers – primarily because I’m a perfectionist!
Lasagna is one of my favorite dishes to cook. Although the process is somewhat laborious, the dish is delicious and provides at least one week’s worth of leftovers! My fiancé and I ate this lasagna for dinner and brought the rest to work for lunch the remainder of the week. The ground turkey and vegetables provide a delicious alternative to the classically prepared lasagna with beef.
Crockpot recipes are ideal during hectic work weeks. This pepperoncini beef is one of my favorites, particularly because of its simplicity. Start the crockpot before you leave for work and the meat will be ready and waiting for you when you get home – and your kitchen will smell amazing!
Stumped on what to make for Super Bowl Sunday? I’ve got you covered! This creamy bacon and jalapeño dip is delicious, extremely easy to make and I guarantee it will be a hit with your friends. With minimal prep and cook time, this appetizer is a winner.
Pan-searing scallops is a much simpler process than you might think — especially if you consider that the cook time for this recipe is only around five minutes. Perfectly golden on the outside and tender on the inside, the scallops’ mild flavor complements a savory butter wine sauce that’s mixed with fresh parsley and green onions.
I love pasta, especially with a cream sauce. Sure, cream sauce is loaded with calories but boy, is it delicious! This simple fettuccine alfredo with broccoli is unbelievably easy to make and not lacking in flavor – it’s delicious with a perfectly creamy sauce.
Life got a bit crazy (busy with work, got engaged[!], etc.), which is why I’ve been absent from blogging, but I was able to get back in the kitchen to make this delicious chicken fried rice. The rice is full of flavor and the perfect meal to whip up during a hectic week.
True life: I’m addicted to pimento cheese dip. Spread this decadent dip atop freshly sliced French bread, dunk a tortilla chip into the cheesy concoction, smooth it on a warm hamburger patty or smear it between two slices of bread for an over-the-top grilled cheese — the possibilities are endless.
