Who Doesn’t Love Italian Food?

I haven't been doing my meal prep on the weekends.  I am able to spend more time at home so I can cook during the week.  I made Mushroom Risotto last week, but since I have already posted it, I didn't do it again. Tonight I made mini calzones for dinner.  They were super simple... Continue Reading →


I didn't get my cooking done this last weekend,  But I promised a friend of mine that I would make this Mexican Rice Casserole tonight, and am I glad that I did!  I am not a fan of super spicy food, and this layered casserole hit the spot.  The portion size is large and it... Continue Reading →

Oldies But Goodies…

This week I made meals that I have made in the past.  I needed something easy to get revved back up to cooking again after taking a couple of weeks off.  I have been struggling trying to find my motivation.  I think I may have been a little ambitious trying to make three entrees after...

Planning, Planning, Planning
