Basil Pesto Crusted Chicken Breasts with Zucchini

This dinner turned out pretty amazing, considering it’s not what I intended to make! The initial intension was going to be hummus crusted chicken breasts but as I was starting dinner, I realized I didn’t actually have any hummus – that was silly! So Basil Pesto chicken was born… First things first: Chop the zucchini […]

Weeknight Cheese Steak Sandwiches

These are inspired by Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches, but less complicated, super easy & extremely delicious! Heat the oil in the skillet over medium heat.

Beef Stroganoff (with Leftover Steak)

We get our ribeye steaks from Costco – they’re GINORMICA & we always have leftovers.

This is such an easy dish […]

Veggie Pizza & Tomato Tart

Consider making these for your next party or potluck. So pretty & colorful & everyone loves them! Lay the crescent roll dough in a baking dish. Square or rectangle, doesn’t matter.
