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 -- ready to go in 5 minutes, and so irresistibly good! | gimmesomeoven.com #appetizer #gameday

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...

7 Layer Dip

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...

4-Ingredient Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Chicken

I absolutely love food blogging.  But I have to confess, there’s one thing about my pre-recipe-developing days that I really miss sometimes about cooking — not measuring stuff. Before I started sharing recipes with you, I was totally “that cook” who prided herself on rarely pulling out a measuring cup...

German Potato Salad

Guten tag, meine freune!   Ok, I had to look up the “my friends” part of that on Google translate.  Clearly my German is not quite on par with my Spanish.  But hey, on the day that this post goes live, I will have already spent a week in...

10-Minute Spinach Lasagna

Since becoming a food blogger, my cell number has basically morphed into the cooking hotline for my friends. Probably at least once a day, I get a text from someone asking whether a ____ can be cooked in the crock pot, or how to tell if _____ is ripe,...

Grilled Sweet Potato Fries

Things That I Do Not Dunk: Basketballs. I dated basketball players in high school and college.  ;)  And stood on the sidelines and rocked it out on dance team and cheered them on.  But I was never coordinated enough to shoot a free throw to save my life.  Me and...
