Ravioli Lasagna

Lasagna! It’s amazing, it’s delicious, it’s….kind of a pain in the ass. However, I was going to do a lasagna post anyway, but then this happened: That is exactly what it looks like. I made that whole lasagna from scratch and when the timer went off, I opened the oven, grabbed the pan with the oven mitts, started to… Continue reading Ravioli Lasagna

Honey Garlic Baked Chicken

This easy Asian-inspired chicken dinner is another house favorite. I like it because I can get it prepped and in the oven in about 10 minutes, and the sides I serve it with are even easier. The husband likes it because of the spice (the red pepper flakes are added after cooking, and omitted on the… Continue reading Honey Garlic Baked Chicken

Easy Homemade Marinara Sauce

This sauce is so good, I almost don’t want to share it. However, I will put my selfish feelings aside and help a mother (or father) out. I’ve been trying to get a good homemade marinara for a while now, and have been making this one for a while and it was good, but not GREAT. Until….I… Continue reading Easy Homemade Marinara Sauce

This recipe is the result of trying a few different chili mac recipes I found, then I made some changes and morphed them together. It’s my franken-mac. It’s not too spicy, so it won’t upset little tummies. It… Continue reading One Pot Cheesy Chili Mac

Takeout Style Shrimp Fried Rice

I had been trying to perfect my fried recipe recipe for over a year, no joke. Every time, I got a little closer, but not quite. Then finally, the stars aligned and I perfected homemade fried rice! You can serve it plain as a side, or with the protein of your choice. I like to… Continue reading Takeout Style Shrimp Fried Rice

5-Minute Prep Chicken and Rice

This is one of the easiest recipes I have in my arsenal. I started making it regularly after my son was born, when I was just too exhausted to really cook. Once he started eating table foods, this was still one of my go-to’s because the chicken comes out super tender and is easy for little ones to… Continue reading 5-Minute Prep Chicken and Rice
