Sheet pan meals have transformed the way I cook dinner during the week – I used to dread coming home from work and having to spend much of my evening cooking.… Read more

Fluffy eggnog pancakes stack in front of Christmas tree.

Are you an eggnog lover or hater? I find that most people are either one or the other, but their opinion is strong either way! It’s almost like how so many people are torn about cilantro (huge fan here!) or mayo (BIG thumbs down from me!) We happen to love eggnog in our home, and last weekend I decided to try my hand at making some eggnog pancakes. These came out DELICIOUS, and would be the perfect Christmas morning (or, let’s be honest, the perfect anytime) breakfast.… Read more

Shortcut Thai Basil Chicken.

Since I’m off during the Summertime, I like to use my extra free time to experiment in the kitchen and stray from my, oh, five dinner recipe regulars. 🙂 Barry’s absolute favorite dish from our beloved local Thai restaurant is Thai Basil Chicken (known as Pad Krapow Gai). One of my cooking goals this Summer was to try to recreate this dish at home, with a few tweaks to make it even simpler to prepare.

INSTANT POT CORNED BEEF AND CABBAGE

Instant Pot corned beef and cabbage, carrots, onions, and potatoes.

I know, I know, you’re probably thinking…why on earth are we talking about corned beef and cabbage in May?! We all know that this classic dish most often surfaces in early March, sticks around for St. Patrick’s Day…and then promptly disappears until the following year. In our home, however, we LOVE corned beef! We stock up on these briskets when they’re on sale in March so that we can enjoy them in the coming months. This past weekend, the craving struck (this was probably due to the fact that we gave up red meat during Lent – we are still making up for lost time 😉 ).… Read more
