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...

Hemp-Crusted Baked Chicken Tenders

I love traveling abroad.  But without a doubt, there are always a few things I appreciate all the more about the States whenever I return.  A few I’m extra-appreciating this week? Ice (and iced coffee) 4G The insect kingdom remaining outside Mexican food The option to flush toilet paper Yogurt...

Garlic Cheddar Beer Bread

If you ever happen to check a blogger’s Twitter feed, or Pinterest page, or the recent texts in their phones, you’ll quickly discover that we’re a pretty social bunch.  And with good reason.  Pretty much every food blogger I know does the majority of her/his work at home, sans...

5-Ingredient Mango Salsa

One of the things I love best about living in my neighborhood is the almost daily conversations that everyone has about fresh produce. Nope, not the weather.  Fresh produce. This is entirely due to the fact that we live across the street from the largest outdoor market in Kansas...

Slow Cooker Apple Cider Pulled Pork

‘Tis the season when I go from lugging my slow cooker out from the pantry to giving it an official “home” on the countertop for the winter. (And coming from someone with very limited counter space, that’s saying a lot!) But my slow cooker has earned it.  I am putting it...
