Baked feta pasta

BAKED FETA PASTA

I think we can all agree that this year has been the year of the TikTok baked feta pasta, am I right? 🙂 I don’t even have a TikTok account (call me old-fashioned 😉 ) but I started hearing about this viral recipe a few months ago and decided to dig in and see what the fuss was all about. By this point there were tons of online videos featuring all different versions of the recipe, but I found the original TikTok video from Grilled Cheese Social, and then discovered that the original recipe (called uunifetapasta) was from Finnish blogger Liemessa.… Read more

INSTANT POT CHICKEN TINGA

This Chicken Tinga recipe cooks quickly in the Instant Pot and comes out juicy, tender, and deliciously smoky and saucy. Serve it in tacos (our favorite!) or in a rice/veggie bowl for an easy and delicious meal!

Almost four years later…my Instant Pot love is still as strong as ever! I use mine at least 1-2 times per week and have come to rely on a steady rotation of recipes that we all love. Last year, I perfected how to make the best Instant Pot Shredded Chicken, and today I’m coming at ya with a fun variation of that – Instant Pot Chicken Tinga.… Read more

EASY, CHEESY GROUND BEEF PASTA

This easy ground beef pasta comes together quickly and is full of delicious cheesy flavor. This is a comforting meal that the whole family will love!

Note: This recipe was updated on 03/12/21 – beef broth was removed from the ingredient list, and reserved pasta water was added.

Please tell us that we’re not the only ones craving allllll of the comfort food during quarantine?! The amount of carbs, cheese, and sweets we’ve eaten over these past few weeks has been, umm…eye-opening, to say the least. We’ve decided to be kind to ourselves, though, and you should too during these difficult times – eat what you crave (with some greens thrown in there too, for good measure!)… Read more

SHEET PAN SAUSAGE, POTATOES, AND PEPPERS

Sheet pan sausage, potatoes, and peppers is one of our favorite quick and healthy, one-pan meals. It’s perfect for busy weeknights or when you need dinner on the table quickly, with barely any prep!

Our love affair with sheet pan meals has been going strong for months now. There’s something so satisfying about adding a few simple, healthy ingredients to a sheet pan, tossing them with some olive oil and herbs, and baking until they’re hot and flavorful. 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

Hello? Is this thing on? 🙂 Hi, friends! We missed you. Life has been crazy over here – we enjoyed the last bit of our Summer, before jumping into a new school year a couple of weeks ago.

For these crazy hectic days, I’ve been turning to my tried and true recipes that can be prepared quickly after a jam packed day.… Read more

SHORTCUT THAI BASIL CHICKEN (PAD KRAPOW GAI)

This flavorful, spicy Thai dish requires only a few staple pantry ingredients and comes together in no time!

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. I think I’ve done it with my Shortcut Thai Basil Chicken!… Read more
