• 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.…

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…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • Steak with Red Pepper Pesto

    January 22, 2019

    For the past few years, my husband and I do Whole30 for the month of January. Whole30 is basically a way to reset your body by eating whole foods for 30 days. That’s why we like to do it after the indulgent holiday season. You basically eliminate sugar, alcohol, grains, legumes, soy, and dairy from…

  • White Bean Chicken Chili

    January 14, 2019

    Cold, rainy nights sitting by the fireplace with a hot bowl of soup are my absolute favorite. Soups and stews are just so comforting and make the house smell amazing and homey. They can sometimes take a long time to make in order to develop great flavor. What I love about this recipe is how fast…

  • Spaghetti Squash Alla Carbonara

    January 4, 2019

    As you probably know by now, I’m Italian and I LOVE pasta! Carbonara is one of my favorite sauces. I make it all the time because the main ingredients are pasta, bacon and eggs, all of which I always have on hand. A few years ago, I started making carbonara a little differently. Instead of…
