Baked Pesto Salmon

Pesto Salmon is one of my go to dinners! It’s so simple and so delicious! I normally smoke my salmon, but baking it is a great option as well. This time I served it with Brown Butter Pasta and Mushrooms braised in balsamic vinegar. Pesto is an amazingly versatile sauce. I’ve put it on darnContinue reading “Baked Pesto Salmon”

Herb Rubbed Pork Loin

Simple dinner before work! I normally sear the pork before roasting, but didn’t have enough time. I was so happy that the fat rendered perfectly! Served with Garlic Rosemary Mashed Carrots and a Mixed Green Salad. ❤️ Herb Rubbed Pork Loin Servings: 4 Cooking Time: 1 1/2 Hours 3 pound Pork Half Loin 2 TablespoonsContinue reading “Herb Rubbed Pork Loin”

Garlic Rosemary Mashed Carrots

I had some requests for my Garlic Rosemary Mashed Carrots recipe that I made as a side for the Herb Rubbed Pork Loin. 💕🥕 I had some carrots that were starting to sprout roots in my crisper drawer so they needed to be used up. 🤣 Garlic Rosemary Mashed Carrots Servings: 4 Cooking Time: 30Continue reading “Garlic Rosemary Mashed Carrots”

Bolognese Baked Ziti

Dinner tonight was Baked Ziti using the marinara I made the other day and I ate entirely too much of it. 😬 I know traditional baked ziti doesn’t usually have meat or veggies in it, but what can I say, I’m a meat eater! 🤣 Bolognese Baked Ziti Servings: 7 Cooking Time: 30 Minutes •Continue reading “Bolognese Baked Ziti”

Sloppy Joe Biscuit Cups

These little cuties take the sloppy out of Sloppy Joes! 🤣 They were a HUGE hit! You can use homemade biscuit dough or the store-bought stuff. 💕 I’ve switched to using my Air Fryer because the oven makes my apartment unbearably hot. I’ll include cooking temps for both air frying and baking. 😊 Swerved withContinue reading “Sloppy Joe Biscuit Cups”

Quick Marinara Sauce

This sauce is so versatile! It’s amazing in Steak Pizzaoila, Chicken Parmesan, Spaghetti or Baked Ziti! While it may not be a traditional Italian recipe, its still delicious! This is the quick version of my from scratch version that takes upwards of 5 hours to make and uses fresh Roma tomatoes. But weeknights can beContinue reading “Quick Marinara Sauce”

Strawberry Banana Sheet Pancake

All of the pancake-y deliciousness and none of the babysitting! You can substitute the gluten free flours with 3 cups of baking or A/P flour. 😊 I, unfortunately, cranked the heat up too high and it cracked. Bummer! I altered the recipe below with the proper baking temperature and time. ❤️ Strawberry Banana Sheet PancakeContinue reading “Strawberry Banana Sheet Pancake”

Cantina Style Salsa

I’m kind of a brat when it comes to salsa. I grew up eating hole-in-the-wall restaurant style cantina salsa and all those premade grocery store shelf jars always tasted too sweet and processed. So now I just make my own. 🤣 It goes great with my Carne Asada Tacos, tortilla chips and Green Chile ChickenContinue reading “Cantina Style Salsa”

Chicken Fajita Pizza

I think I picked the wrong day to make Chicken Fajita Pizza. It’s a solid 100°F in my apartment right now. Totally worth it! 🤣 This was a rehash of a recipe I started making years and years ago. It turned out brilliantly! Chicken Fajita Pizza Servings: 4 Cooking Time: 45 minutes 1 Pizza Dough Ball 1 large Chicken Breast; butterflied 1 Tablespoon Fajita Spice BlendContinue reading “Chicken Fajita Pizza”

Pesto Chicken Pasta

Simple 20 minute dinner tonight because today’s been crazy and my tank’s on empty. Pulled a jar of homemade pesto out of the freezer and it was fresh as the day I made it. Here’s a picture of the loaf I made yesterday and promised a picture of. The second loaf definitely came out betterContinue reading “Pesto Chicken Pasta”
