Butternut Squash Alfredo Baked Shells

What is the best way to reach you? If someone wants to get ahold of me, I always recommend that they send a text (or iMessage).  Or next best would be an email.  Maybe call.  Possibly tweet.  Probably don’t leave a Facebook message.  And I rarely check my snail mailbox.  But if you...

15 Slow Cooker Soups & Stews

Once fall hits, I’m exceptionally giddy about two things: socks and soups. I take out my beloved Le Creuset (in Carribbean blue) and start slow cooking. I’m all for any meal that can be made in one pot, and these soups and stews are just the ticket. Not only...

Barbacoa-8

Barbacoa

What was the “cool” restaurant you begged your parents to take you to when you were a kid? Growing up in Wichita in the 80s and 90s, I have to admit that my parents were way ahead of the whole “supporting local restaurants” trend, and we were regulars at our...

Samosas-3

Baked Samosas (2 Ways!)

Look out, world.  I finally learned how to make samosas.  Actually, I learned how to make real-deal traditional vegetarian samosas, but then had the idea to also try converting them into a (considerably) quick-and-easier version in mini phyllo cups.  So today I’m sharing two samosa recipes below, which happen to...

Fuji Apple Chicken Salad (Panera Bread Copycat)

I’m bringing this one back up from the archives to share with you today.  Because I’m pretty sure we all need more of this salad in our lives. I only have a handful of restaurant copycat recipes here on the blog.  But after having ordered the Fuji apple chicken...

Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup

Can I tell you one thing that makes me unreasonably happy on a day-to-day basis? Strangers smiling at me. Even better? Strangers waving, or nodding, or offering a pleasant hello, or even (my favorite) the ol’ one-finger-raise-on-the-steering wheel. For whatever reason, I always notice those little things and they...
