Olive Garden’s Knock-Off Pasta Fagioli

Olive Garden’s Knock-Off Pasta Fagioli

I found this recipe on Pinterest over a year ago and it’s become a meal that I make in any season and have brought to many different parties and dinners. It makes a huge amount, so make sure you have room in your fridge or freezer for leftovers. In fact, I halve the original recipe [...]

Lasagna with Hidden Veggie Bolognese

Lasagna with Hidden Veggie Bolognese

A while back, I ran across this recipe for Spinach Lasagna with Bolognese Sauce on Pinterest and it sounded amazing! I made it once for my family using boxed lasagna noodles and it was really delicious. Someday I’d like to make the spinach pasta from scratch, like she’s done in the original post; maybe it [...]

Sausage-Stuffed Zucchini

Sausage-Stuffed Zucchini

My family loves zucchini, and when you, your husband and both kids will all devour a specific vegetable, you learn to get creative with it so you can use it often!

Meatballs with Hidden Veggies

Meatballs with Hidden Veggies

My son loves the kid’s meatball sub sandwich from Firehouse Subs. Which I find funny because when I make spaghetti with marinara at home, he says he doesn’t like tomato sauce. He even prefers pesto sauce on his pizza instead the the typical tomato-based sauce. But for some reason, in a sandwich form with melted [...]

Over the last few years, I have tried to cut back on processed foods in our house, and hopefully save a few bucks on our grocery bill. One item we have completely eliminated is store-bought, boxed macaroni and cheese. Once I learned the basics on how to make a cheesy béchamel sauce, I figured out [...]

Creamy Mediterranean Chicken and Pasta

Creamy Mediterranean Chicken and Pasta

At least twice a month, I cook a whole chicken in my Crock Pot. My family loves the tender meat and vegetables and I save the bones to make homemade bone broth for soups and other dishes. We use the leftover meat throughout the week to make sandwiches, stir-fry, and other meals. I recently came [...]

Cheesy Chicken & Corn Chowder
