Were these some of your favorites as well? {january 2012} Of course January resulted in a healthy breakfast smoothie as everyone was making their resolutions [...]

menu recap [week 26]

Monday: Fish Fillets with Tomatoes,  Squash, and Basil Again, I used the pre-made parchment paper packets, so much easier. We really liked this recipe and I used halibut instead of our usual tilapia so it was much heartier than our usual fish portion. Tuesday: Pasta with roasted tomatoes and Italian chicken In an on-going effort [...]

not your potluck’s pasta salad

I love pasta salad. It’s basically a hodge-podge of anything you have in your fridge or pantry. That’s what I love about this recipe from My Recipes, it’s a unique combination that I would never put together in a “regular” pasta salad.

Biga Wine Dinner [girl's night]

On Monday this week, I joined my friends Megan  & Shonda for a wine dinner at Biga Italian Restaurant. It was a 4-course meal with wine pairings from the Benessere Vineyards for each. Unfortunately, the rep from the winery was delayed due to our amazing storms we’ve had all week, but he finally made it at [...]

Gnocchi Cooking Class [Urban Kitchen]

Last night I learned how to make gnocchi. Do you know how? I love it and I knew (had heard) it was easy, but I had never been brave enough to attempt it. So I took a class. Let me backtrack, I started taking cooking classes back in my OKC days at a place called [...]

Leek, Bacon & Goat Cheese Pasta

When I saw the recipe for leek, BACON, and goat cheese pizza on one of my favorite blogs (add it to your reader right now) I knew I just had to try it immediately. Unfortunately, there were two obstacles in my way: 1) we had eaten pizza for dinner the past few evenings and 2) [...]
