Tender, garlic buttered portobello mushrooms, stuffed with fresh tomatoes and basil, topped with melty mozzarella cheese, and the drizzled with a sweet and tangy balsamic glaze!?!

Looking to up your game in the kitchen this year? It’s a new year, which means it’s time to clean out your kitchen and get rid of any old tools or appliances that you don’t use any more, and update them with new ones!

A true comfort food, this Tuscan-Style White Bean and Sausage Soup makes a delightful, cozy dinner on a cold winter’s day.

It’s SO good!
If my kids consistently ask to have this soup, then that must mean it’s a good recipe right? The first time I made this Roasted Tomato Basil Soup, it was an instant hit. The whole family devoured it.

With the weather FINALLY starting to cool down, I’m in a constant state of comfort food craving. And a rich, creamy, fettuccini alfredo recipe was exactly what I wanted last week. Now, typically, I’m not a huge fan of pumpkin, or pumpkin flavored foods and drinks. But I had this one can of pure pumpkin on hand, and I wanted to find something to incorporate it in. Considered it’s loaded with vitamins and nutrients, I thought it might be a great way to give my fettuccini alfredo a healthy boost.

If you haven’t heard of the Instant Pot recipes craze, then you came to the right place today! Instant Pot is a multi-cooker that does the job of a slow cooker, electric pressure cooker, rice cooker, steamer, yogurt maker, sauté/browning pan, and warming pot. It’s a single appliance that does the job of seven different kitchen appliances or tools. And it’s kind of amazing.

If you’ve ever had those adorable little Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps, you know how tasty they are, but also how messy they can be to eat.

One of my all time favorite Weight Watchers holiday salad recipes, I’ve made this Pomegranate, Apple, and Date Salad Recipe more times than I can recall!

A little sweet, a little salty, a little smoky…all the good tastes are there.
As a kid, I grew up eating Sloppy Joe’s as a regular staple. It was an easy meal to cook, and pretty inexpensive to make, so we ate it a LOT. I do occasionally make Sloppy Joe’s for my kids, which they love, but I will still enjoy one myself every now and then. Not too long ago, I decided to try out a new concept I’d seen around a few times, by combining the ingredients of a Philly Cheesesteak in the form of a Sloppy Joe.
