Tomato Ricotta Pizza and Eggplant Steaks with Tapenade

I’m not even gonna pretend that my husband will eat like a normal person at meal times anymore. Every time he eats more than I think he will, and every time it shocks me. It needs to stop shocking me. I made 2 pizzas, and Mark and Cooper practically finished off a whole one by themselves. Good… Continue reading Tomato Ricotta Pizza and Eggplant Steaks with Tapenade

Beef and Broccoli and Grilled Cabbage Steaks

This tastes exactly like Chinese Take Out. I’M NEVER ORDERING TAKE OUT AGAIN. Psh. Kidding. Of course I’m ordering Take Out. And Delivery. And pre-made Trader Joe’s meals. And anything else that sounds remotely lazy. But in all seriousness, this Beef and Broccoli was like the easiest thing to make and I couldn’t even tell a… Continue reading Beef and Broccoli and Grilled Cabbage Steaks

Cookies and Cream Cookies

These cookies are so good they should be banned from all society. I stumbled upon this recipe on pinterest and it looked uber intriguing. I’m always trying to look for new cookie recipes that aren’t your standard chocolate chip cookies. Because, yes, while they are classic, they are down right boring…in my mind. I’m probably gonna get… Continue reading Cookies and Cream Cookies

Grilled Asparagus Bruschetta and Roasted Beets with Mushroom Bordelaise

Beets are so good but scare me to death. To make. I don’t understand how they make it from the outdoors onto my plate. I figured it out tonight, though. You wrap the little suckers in foil and bake them until the get so baked, their skin starts to fall off. You gotta bake them… Continue reading Grilled Asparagus Bruschetta and Roasted Beets with Mushroom Bordelaise

Quinoa-Crusted Fish Nuggets and Roasted Root Veggies

My son was only 3 months old. Basically a cute little blob who didn’t move. Mark would come home… Continue reading Quinoa-Crusted Fish Nuggets and Roasted Root Veggies

Grilled Onion, Mushroom, and Bacon Mac and Cheese

Tonight Mark was at a soccer game. He joined a soccer league through work. It happened like this… He came home on Tuesday night and said “Hey I joined a soccer league and we will have 2 evening games a week. You and Cooper can come watch me, and cheer me on!”. This is what… Continue reading Grilled Onion, Mushroom, and Bacon Mac and Cheese

Chicken Cordon Bleu and a Roasted Carrot and Red Leaf Lettuce Salad

I swear if you ever need recipe ideas just turn on Food Network for like 10 minutes and you should be salivating at at least one thing. I salivated over both of these things. While I was watching them on tv, while I was cooking and while I consumed the meal. Clearly I need to rehydrate.… Continue reading Chicken Cordon Bleu and a Roasted Carrot and Red Leaf Lettuce Salad

Breakfast Enchiladas and a Golden Potato and Smoked Sausage Hash

Monday through Friday Mark’s alarm goes off at 4:32, 4:35 and 4:38 in the morning. Yes 3 alarms. Just to make extra sure he wakes up. But you know who also wakes up? Me. Turns out babies and husbands are more similar than I thought: They both live by something called the “pile” or “scatter”… Continue reading Breakfast Enchiladas and a Golden Potato and Smoked Sausage Hash
