Skinny French Onion Dip

Friends, I made you a tasty dip for the Super Bowl! Ok, let’s be real.  I made you a tasty dip that you can make it for the SuperBowl.  I actually made it for my book club, which arguably has more passionate cheering, booing, and dip-eating than any football party I know.  ;)...

Sloppy Joe Tacos

At the time this post goes live, pretty sure that life will find me laying out on the beach in Mexico, with four girlfriends by my side, a pina colada in hand, no computer in sight, listening to the waves, soaking up some much-needed sunshine, talking for hours and hours...

Potato Soup

Man, it’s amazing what a 5-day weekend will do for the world, isn’t it? Yesterday afternoon as I was enjoying the last few hours of Thanksgiving break at my neighborhood coffee shop, I looked around and couldn’t help but notice how visibly relaxed everyone was.  Even amidst the hustle and bustle...

Best Chicken Enchiladas Ever!

I know that food bloggers are never prone to hyperbole.  ;) But with these enchiladas, I stand by the title that I gave to this recipe when I first blogged about it in 2009.  These seriously are the best chicken enchiladas ever! Actually, I’m ok saying that because I actually learned...

7-Ingredient Easy Zuppa Toscana (Creamy Gnocchi Soup with Kale and Sausage)

One of my favorite things about meeting new friends is getting to visit their homes for the first time. Ok ok, I’ll admit, often I’m totally “that friend” who will figure out a way to casually invite myself over, because I love getting to see where someone lives.   I love...

2-Ingredient Queso Dip

I love the guys in my life.  But I have to admit, there’s nothing quite like a full-on girls night. A few weeks ago, my friend Sara a group of friends up to her new house for just that.  Boyfriends and husbands were swapped for beach towels and bottles of...

Slow Cooker Chex Mix

Have you ever heard of the Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon? Well if you’re like me, you have probably know exactly what it is, but never knew it had an official name.  Basically, it’s what happens when That New Thing you just found out about suddenly seems to start showing up everywhere.  Like when I...

Guess who’s going to the World Series for the first time in 29 years?!?!?!?!?! Kansas Cityyyyyyyyy!!!!!! The last time the Royals made it into the World Series (around this time back in 1985), you probably would have found me rocking my favorite pumpkin suit while cheering on the team.  (Ok ok,...

Slow Cooker Chili + Crock-Pot GIVEAWAY!

I’m now calling this “victory chili”, because when I made it a few days ago for the Royals’ big wild card game, they freaking won and earned their way to the play-offs for the first time in 29 years!!! Oh my goodness.  People reading this post years from now will probably have...

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...

Parmesan Baked Chicken Nuggets -- crispy, easy to make, and SO tasty! | gimmesomeoven.com

Parmesan Baked Chicken Nuggets

Last weekend, I caved and ordered fast food chicken nuggets. Yes, the fried, questionably-shaped, had-probably-been-sitting-out-for-hours, Lord-knows-what’s-in-them kind of nuggets.  Judge away. But I have to admit, I was seriously craving some comfort food.  It was day two in the NICU back home in Wichita where our family had gathered...
