• Pesto Mozzarella Chicken

    August 31, 2020

    I love pesto so I make sure to always have some on hand. I do enjoy making homemade pesto using our garden basil, but I also keep a couple store bought jars in my pantry and fridge. Not only is store bought pesto a time saver, but it tastes great and is so versatile! I…

  • Genovese Sauce

    August 6, 2020

    My Nonna always said that the best recipes are the simplest recipes. As per usual, she was right! All of her recipes are the most delicious authentic Italian dishes, yet so easy to make and only call for a few ingredients. Just like Nonna’s Red Sauce, this Genovese Sauce was one of her most famous recipes.…

    People are cooking now more than ever because of the quarantine. I’ve been trying to be creative and come up with recipes using ingredients I have on hand. In an attempt to eat healthy(ish) during this crazy time, I’ve been making more salads as our weeknight dinners. Due to the fact that it is not…

    March 23, 2020

    Like most Americans, we are quarantining right now. It is such a strange time in the world and can feel really overwhelming and scary. So in an effort to make things light and happy, we are counting our blessings and trying to make the best of this time. I am a stay at home mom, so…

  • Homemade Pasta

    March 23, 2020

    Homemade pasta always seemed so intimidating and difficult to make. I lived in Italy for a semester during college, where I learned how easy it actually was. You only need a few ingredients and it is tastes so much better than anything you buy in a box at the grocery store. Also, it is just…

  • Fall Harvest Salad

    November 14, 2019

    Thanksgiving is just around the corner! I LOVE this time of year. Spending time with my family is my absolute favorite thing about the holidays. However, the food is a close second. Most holiday dishes are quite indulgent (which I am all for) but it is also nice to have some lighter, healthy options as…

  • Classic Roast Chicken

    October 14, 2019

    For some reason, I was always intimidated by roast chicken. It looked like it took a ton of time to make and I always worried it would turn out dry. A few years ago, I cooked a turkey for the first time for Friendsgiving (see recipe here). It was SO much easier than I thought…

  • Pancetta, Peas & Parmesan Pasta

    July 16, 2019

    This is the first recipe I’ve posted since my Son was born! It is also the recipe that I’ve made the most over these last 3 months. Our sweet little Asher has been keeping me very busy, so cooking isn’t as easy as it used to be.  I love this recipe because it is super…

  • Tomato Soup

    March 6, 2019

    There are few things in life more comforting than a bowl of tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich. This winter has been one of the coldest in LA that I can remember. We have had a ton of rain recently. Temperatures are so low, that it actually snowed! And even though I’m definitely ready for…

  • Bacon Wrapped Filet

    February 12, 2019

    The only thing better than filet mignon is filet mignon wrapped in bacon! My Husband does the grilling in our household. I’m usually the one marinating the steaks and then he takes them outside to grill on the BBQ. With all the rain we’ve been having recently in LA, grilling isn’t really an option for…
