This is of my favorite recipes since it's so easy, delicious, and straightforward. The results are great every time. A nice cheesy crust, tender lasagna noodles, creamy ricotta, savory Italian sausage, and zesty tomato sauce simmer on the stove for a mere 20 minutes and magically become the world's easiest lasagna. Once you've got all the ingredients prepped, the actual cook time is a breeze. Throw everything in one pan and impress your loved ones. I generally have a bunch of these ingredients on hand in my pantry so it's a great dish to make for last minute dinners. Find out how next...let's get cookin!
I love last minute meals that are not only quick and easy, but on the lighter side. This chicken is so freaking good. It’s simple to make, and the recipe can be used for chicken thighs or breasts :) You can use any cheap domestic beer. I took a consensus from several guy friends to see what beer they thought would work the best with this recipe, and in the end, I chose to go with local brewed Anchor Steam. The sauce is a delicious mixture of whole grain mustard, soy sauce, honey, and beer. It all cooks down and leaves the chicken in an amazing glaze that is the perfect balance of sweet, salty, and tangy. Fresh flat leaf parsley brightens it all up. I devoured this while sitting in my garden immediately after shooting this recipe. It’s hella good, lol. Definitely my favorite new go-to during a busy weeknight. Let’s get cookin :)
One-skillet dinners are domestic salvation. Personally, I loathe pre-heating the oven. This dish is done in 15 minutes on the stovetop - easy enough for the guys in your life ;) I love the idea of not having to boil pasta or wait for dinner to bake up in the oven! Most of my favorite recipes are done in one pan - check out my One-Skillet, No-Bake Lasagna! I love simple tricks that help you cut down on time and save extra steps in the kitchen! :)
This recipe made me almost cry into my bowl. I’m serious - it’s so good. It’s packed with rich Italian flavors that remind you of your favorite baked pasta dish. Tender orzo pasta, hearty ground beef, tomatoes, bright spinach, and the glorious nuttiness of grated Parmesan. In 15 minutes. It’s easy, I promise :) Let’s get cookin!
Happy New Year! I hope you all had a great end of the year. I’m looking forward to sharing some amazing recipes with you this year. Personally, I’ve been working hard to make better diet choices and cultivate healthier habits and it feels great :)
One of my favorite dishes lately is classic Chicken Piccata. I’ve always thought it was a really difficult dish and have never attempted to make it for myself. Recently I gave it a try and loved how it turned out. I love being able to enjoy this at home without the restaurant price.
Before my trip I purchased a gorgeous baby cast iron skillet, with all intentions of creating delicious single serving dishes. For today’s recipe, I wanted to explore a twist on traditional Corned Beef Hash & Eggs. What makes things feel fancier than prosciutto? Yummmm. This recipe is so easy, so delicious, and really pretty for brunch. The flavor combinations are classic, and make for a wonderful and hearty meal.
One night I was craving artichoke hearts, and decided to mess around with incorporating them in a chicken dish for dinner. Marinated artichoke hearts are light, tender, and punchy. They add a beautifully complex flavor to any dish because they have been marinated in a flavorful oil infused with tons of spices. I love them on salads and in pasta, and thought that their tangy flavor would be delicious in a Mediterranean inspired meal.
