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

Even though the recipes I was cooking for dinner were all of our favorites, I felt like I was getting tired of cooking the same things over and over again. I decided to make it my goal to try one new recipe per week – super manageable, right? This recipe for Creamy Bacon and Leek Pasta was one of the first new ones I tried and let’s just say…I’ve made it three times already, and it’s only February! Whoops. 🙂 I know that goes against my goal of trying more new recipes but trust me…this one is delicious.… Read more

I’ve clearly been on a mini muffin kick over the past few months, and with good reason – they’re perfect for little toddler hands to grab and gobble. 🙂 They’re also just so much cuter than regular muffins, and are perfect for adults when they want just a little *pop* of something sweet.

INSTANT POT SHREDDED CHICKEN

This recipe for shredded chicken cooked in the Instant Pot is the best way to cook chicken breasts – they come out juicy, perfectly cooked, tender, and flavorful…every single time!

You’ve heard me sing praises for the Instant Pot before…and I’m here to do the same today. 🙂 Guys, the one thing that has always intimidated me when it comes to cooking is…chicken. Steak? Easy! Burgers? No problem! Homemade pizza? You got it! But…chicken. Oh, chicken. I have always been so afraid of undercooking it, which caused me to often overcook it…which then left me with gummy, tough chicken.… Read more
