Creamy Skillet Ravioli

Creamy Skillet Ravioli by Stephanie

Is it just me or is your fridge full of half-used "stuff"? Half a jar of this sauce, half a bottle of that condiment, etc. It makes me nuts. Not nuts enough to be efficient and use them up, instead I often end up chucking jars that seem to have gone from good to questionable... but hey, nobody's perfect, 'm I right?Growing up my…

Chicken Fajita Pasta

Chicken Fajita Pasta by Stephanie

No lies... I made this so long ago I'm not even sure if it was pre-Emmie or post-Emmie, but it's been a long time. I do remember that whenever I made it I sat there eating it and thinking, "Why don't I cook more often? Gosh, I miss the days when I cooked regularly!" It was just so delicious. John and I both love fajitas and love pasta…

Pesto Chicken Flatbreads

Pesto Chicken Flatbreads by Stephanie

Well, hello out there. Wonder where I've been? Well, I had a beautiful baby girl on July 21 and have taken some time off to just enjoy her, feed her, recoup, and relax. Now that she's 2 months life feels a bit more "normal" and I'm trying to get back in the kitchen and back in the swing of things. I have some recipes that I made…

Crockpot Honey Sriracha Chicken

Crockpot Honey Sriracha Chicken by Stephanie

I love the crockpot for convenience but don't love what it does to chicken. Well, correction, I like bone-in chicken in the crockpot, but I feel like it kills breasts. Since I'm home on maternity leave/summer break I decided to try making it but keeping it to the lower end of the time range. That definitely helped. This chicken was…

Easy Penne Alla Vodka

Easy Penne Alla Vodka by Stephanie

Hi there. Still pregnant. Still hot. Still uncomfortable... still trying to cook meals. A whole lot of "still" going on around here. I'm not really in the mood to think of anything creative so I've been sticking to foods I know we love.With that said, this pasta was one of the best things I've made in a long time. We are all fans of…

Baked Foil Wrapped Chicken Cheesesteaks

Baked Foil Wrapped Chicken Cheesesteaks by Stephanie

We recently got back from a beach vacation and since our return I've been dreaming of chicken cheesesteaks. When we were at the beach there was a little luncheonette connected to our hotel so John would pick us up sandwiches daily while Landon napped and I think I ate a cheesesteak... daily. What can I see.. a pregnant woman knows…

Italian Herb Chicken

Italian Herb Chicken by Stephanie

Every so often I make something that evolves as I am midway through the cooking process. For example, with this meal, I planned to just have an easy meal of baked chicken with seasonings, but then I wanted cheese...and a crunch to the top... and before you know it, I'm in the kitchen adding on as the meal cooks. Inspiration strikes…

Skillet Pesto Chicken Sacchetti

Skillet Pesto Chicken Sacchetti by Stephanie

Can I tell you how nice it's been to get back in my kitchen? I've missed eating real food. It's so enjoyable to actually have food with flavor again! Soon enough baby girl will be here and I'll be back on a hiatus, I'm sure, but for now... loving it. With that said, I always rave about the Italian market in my town, but it's just so…

Crispy Asian Lemon Shrimp

Crispy Asian Lemon Shrimp by Stephanie

Landon is a huge fan of two things in life: shrimp and Asian flavors. It's funny... the kid will NOT taste mac and cheese, refuses all pasta (except at daycare- apparently they make it better than me...), won't touch a grilled cheese sandwich... but housed a platter of spiced wontons in an Asian glaze, eats a whole pint of chicken and…
