It was so much fun and I’ll definitely be making it again! Beef Miso Ramen Servings: 2 Cooking Time: 20 Minutes 4 oz. FlankContinue reading “Beef Miso Ramen”

Hawaiian Mac Salad

When I was vacationing with my family in Maui years back everything was served with this amazing Macaroni Salad, locally referred to simply as Mac Salad. It varies from its mainland cousin with its lack of mustard and minimal vinegar. It’s a simple and amazing recipe that is my go-to potluck recipe! It comes togetherContinue reading “Hawaiian Mac Salad”

Bolognese Baked Ziti

Quick Marinara Sauce

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.

American Goulash

I haven’t made American Goulash (not to be confused with Hungarian Goulash) in a hot minute, which is surprising because it’s one of my favorite childhood dishes. Beef, pasta, herbs, chicken stock? Yes, please! It’s such a hearty dish that is amazing on a winter night! Or a spring night. Or a summer night. 🤣IContinue reading “American Goulash”
