Vegetable Tetrazzini Recipe

Vegetable Tetrazzini

Chicken Tetrazzini is one of those deliciously retro casseroles that has stood the test of time. We might not be making Wieneroni or Ham and Bananas Hollandaise anymore, but everyone’s mom still makes Chicken Tetrazzini. It’s a classic! A classic that is not horrifying!

One-Pot Pasta Primavera

One-Pot Pasta Primavera

I’m totally a sucker for one-pot meals. I mean, fewer dishes? Less fuss and muss (whatever “muss” is)? I’m in. So when I saw one-pot pasta floating around Pinterest awhile back, I was intrigued. I made Martha Stewart’s version pretty much immediately, and I loved it. And, because I’m a food blogger and this is…

Portabella and Spinach Lasagna Roll-Ups

There are things in life that simply match. Beer and pizza. Soup and grilled cheese. Wine and chocolate. Winter and lasagna.

Recipe | Cremini and Chard Stuffed Shells

It’s always good to try to improve and be a better person and whatnot, but I think when you reach your 30s, you start to give up on that a little bit and accept that in some areas, you’re just always going to fall short. And that’s okay! Sometimes giving up is liberating. Like on…

Vegan Sun-Dried Tomato Fettuccine Recipe

Recipe | (Vegan!) Sun-Dried Tomato Fettuccine Alfredo + How To Make Your Own Sun-Dried Tomatoes

I’ve only had real fettuccine alfredo once. I went through a phase about 10 years ago where I used to eat fettuccine alfredo Lean Cuisines a few times a week. (Don’t judge me!) And then I thought, “Hey, this stuff is pretty good! Fettuccine alfredo is my thing now!” So when Chris and I went…

Recipe | Pasta with Cilantro Jalapeño Pesto, Fresh Corn & Tomatoes

Chris went to Austin for a business trip this week and business trips are my chance to be lazy in the kitchen because when I’m just cooking for myself, I don’t have to impress anyone. So the past few days have been a lot of “Oh hey, I’m just going to eat this salad out…

Zucchini and Lemon Spaghetti Recipe

Recipe | Zucchini and Lemon Spaghetti from Food: Vegetarian Home Cooking

Before I started blogging, I didn’t spend much time thinking about vegetarianism. Having stopped eating meat at such a young age, it was simply a way of life. I never felt a longing to eat meat or looked at a restaurant menu and thought, “Oh, I really wish I had more options.” I didn’t talk…

There’s a whole lot to love about this Cheese & Roasted Vegetable Baked Manicotti recipe. 1. Roasted vegetables! The best kind of vegetables!

What I Ate This Week | Breaking Out the Cookbooks

Obviously, I am a big fan of food blogs (duh, I am a food blogger), but the one downside to all my food blog reading is that I forget about all my old cookbooks. My poor, neglected cookbooks! After doing my review of Martha Stewart’s Meatless last week, I decided dust off some of those…

Recipe | Asparagus Ravioli with Pan-Seared Cremini Mushrooms

When I first started blogging, I was a little bit shy when it came to telling people about it. Now that my blog (and everything related to it) is my job, I’m a little more bold and I feel okay telling people that I’m a food blogger when they ask what I do. Usually people…
