Tomato Soup

It is STILL winter. I feel like this cold weather up in the PNW has lasted a little too long. I am naturally a cold-natured person and I just overall need anything I can get to warm me up on a cold day. These cold and dreary days call for a big ole cup of […]

Sloppy Joes

Sloppy Joes are a meal I associate with my childhood. My mom would crack open a can of Manwich, sauté some onions and bell pepper with ground beef, and boom, easy weeknight meal. But as I have entered my own culinary experience with my own kiddos, I find myself gravitating away from the canned stuff […]

Fried Chicken Sandwich

If I love anything, I love a good fried chicken sammie. This recipe is a copycat version of the Chick-Fil-A version we all know and love. But as good as their sandwiches are, I equally love getting to go with one of my friends, bribe our kids to eat, and then they go play. We […]

Lasagna

Let me start out by saying: this is THE best.lasagna.ever. So rich, so hearty, and so dang good. I had never made homemade lasagna prior to marrying Aric (it is one of his absolute favorites). It always seemed so hard and I am NOT a fan of ricotta cheese. But, being the good wife I […]

Apple Cranberry Pie

Thanksgiving is a couple of weeks away. How this even happened, I have no idea. It felt like 2019 just started a couple of months ago, and here we are, another year has come and gone. Though I hate how fast time seems to have been going lately, I am more than thrilled about all […]

Cast Iron Skillet Cornbread

Cornbread is one of those types of breads that I associate with the colder months that are filled with soups and chili and all things hearty. There are a million different cornbread recipes and some people like it sweet, while others prefer their cornbread savory. This recipe is definitely a savory version, but I have […]

Tres Leches Cake

Tres leches cake, which translates to “three milks” cake, is one of my favorite cakes to make. It is also one of my favorite cakes to eat. While meal prepping before Aric returned from his deployment, I just K N E W I had to make this naughty thing. If you were to ask him, […]
