Chicken Parm Meatballs…OMG Yum!

This recipe is not one of my own, but it is one that is certainly delicious.  I made these a few years ago for dinner one night, as Dan LOVES chicken parm.  They were really easy to make and would be fun to make and bring as an appetizer!  The original recipe can be found at: http://www.daydreamkitchen.com/2012/12/amazing-chicken-parm-meatballs/ …

Spaghetti Squash Scampi…be careful with this one!

I love spaghetti squash!  It is one of my favorite things to eat.  That being said, it is also a little dangerous to make!  A few years ago when Dan and I lived in Hoboken, we invited our friends Ashley and Randy over for dinner.  I decided I was going to make spaghetti squash shrimp…

Layered Dip Appetizer

I love all Mexican food! It is one of my favorite cuisines. This dip is super easy to make and you can serve it with chips. The best part is that you can make it ahead.  You will need: Taco seasoning packet Can of refried beans  Sour cream  Jar of salsa  Shredded cheese Chopped olives…

Baked Eggplant Parm!

Yum, I love eggplant.  Dan and I order this pizza from a place in our town called Zappia’s and it is eggplant, ricotta, crushed tomatoes, basil and mozzarella cheese—it is out of this world!!!!  I know this is not a very healthy eggplant option, but here is one that is a bit more healthy! You…

Holly & Timmy on the BLOG…sharing some Turkey Meatloaf with you!

I had every intention of blogging yesterday, but I had a crazy trip home from Key West, so basically my holiday consisted of two naps on the couch and then an adventure in the snow to have dinner with my nieces, parents, brother-in-law, sister, and my super great co-pilot husband.  It was well worth the…

Side Dish…Roasted Potatoes!

I love to cook, yet I often struggle with coming up with new side dishes to try.  I like to change them up, but sometimes it is hard to be creative, so I just go back to the usuals.  The other day while shopping at Trader Joe’s I saw this adorable little bag of organic…

Taco Tuesday!

I absolutely love Tacos!  I am always telling Dan that we should make all kinds of recipes to put in taco shells or on a salad.  Last week we had some steak so I marinated it in this Teriyaki Marinade from my favorite place, Trader Joe’s.  When I got home I sautéed green peppers, mushrooms,…

Coconut Rice…Thanks BELIZE :)

Sooooo….this isn’t really a recipe, but I am still counting it as one.  When we were on our honeymoon in Belize, I loved talking to all the locals about the food and how they prepared it.  Probably because it was always soooo yummy.  One thing that a few people told me when we were there…

Set it and Forget it… Easy Crock Pot Recipe!

This is a recipe I tried for Christmas Eve and it was super easy and very delicious!!!

Tine’s Famous & Delicious Salad

One of my favorite things to eat is salad, but I don’t like boring salads.  My friend Justine, makes this salad, which is one of my favorites…I’m always excited when she says she is bringing it!  I’ve made it myself before and it is simple and most people love it! Here is the recipe: 2…

Broccoli Cheese Bites…YUM!

One of my favorite courses of a meal is appetizers.  I like the idea of a bunch of different options where you can have a few tastes of each.  Last week, my friend, Jen and I went out to dinner at Barbounia (http://barbounia.com) and ordered a whole bunch of appetizers to share and it was…
