Large Stuffed Shells

Large Stuffed Shells

How about you cook some pasta tonight? Better yet – make it some STUFFED PASTA! I’m a huge pasta fan. Who isnt? Well, okay some people aren’t. Savages… Any chance I get to make pasta, you better believe I’m making it. My boyfriend likes to […]

Pork Ragu with Penne Pasta

Pork Ragu with Penne Pasta

Cooking with leftovers is something I’m trying to get better at. I just made that huge pork shoulder and there was still a hefty amount of leftovers. Food waste is an awful thing, and I desperately try not to waste anything. Here is an idea of […]

Spiced Pork Shoulder

Spiced Pork Shoulder

After a few healthy meals we went back to our bad habits… yes… PORK! I’ve never cooked a pork shoulder before. Eaten it a bunch of times. However, this was my first attempt at making it. We should have grilled it, but this past weekend […]

Eggplant Sheet Pan Dinner

Eggplant Sheet Pan Dinner

If you can’t tell now, I’m a huge fan of quick, FAST dinners. I don’t have time to mess around in the kitchen, I have a full-time job, dog, cat, fish, and a lot of plants. So if I can make dinner easy on myself, […]

Mexican Spiced Pork Loin Roast

Mexican Spiced Pork Loin Roast

Pork. Oh pork. How I love thee. So lets make a pork loin roast! It’s semi-easy to make, you do need a thermometer. Which honestly, I do recommend using all the time (especially with pork).  You generally want the inside of it to be 145° […]

Roasted Vegetables

Roasted Vegetables

Roasted vegetables are the best thing ever. There, I’ve said it. They really are. Easy to make, healthy, they make your house smell amazing. What else could be better? Oh, adding some meat you say? Yes. Then we have ourselves a dinner! (For you vegetarians […]

Zoodles with Spicy Ground Turkey Pasta Sauce

Zoodles with Spicy Ground Turkey Pasta Sauce

I’m a fan of a quick, cheap, and easy meal. Who isn’t? This recipe kind of came from how I make tacos (that’ll be a different blog for sure). This meal easily feeds two, and has a little bit of spice to it as well! […]

Phil’s Grill

Phil’s Grill

Oh summer! It’s been…well a hot one. You killed my plants, you made me sweat, you made me get boots for my dog so she wouldn’t burn her feet when we took her on walks (which are super cute BTW), and now you’re almost over. […]

Scallops with Squid Ink Pasta

Scallops with Squid Ink Pasta

I know, it sounds gross. But it really isn’t, I promise. This is one of my favorite dishes to make. I do, however, change it up from time to time. The veggies in this are easily substituted to any seasonal type of vegetable.  I often prepare this […]

Braised Short Rib

Braised Short Rib

Sunday’s are usually my lazy-laundry day.  However, things got a little crazy in Los Angeles yesterday with some rain and power outages. Needless to say, we were without power for a good part of the day. Actually, all of the day.  I was not, however, […]
