Tilapia Tacos

When the triple digit summer weather rolls in, I don’t want to slave over a hot stove. I want something quick, fresh, and light. Tilapia tacos hit the bill on all counts. This is one of my favorite fish dishes: the flavors are so bright!

Eggplant Parmesan

Eggplant Parmesan

We try to eat vegetarian recipes about once a week, and Eggplant Parmesan is by far our favorite vegetarian option for large groups of people. This week my mom and Jake’s step-mom had dinner with us, so it was the perfect time to make eggplant parm. Why? Well, an eggplant … Read the rest

Green Enchiladas

Green Enchiladas

We to have a few low-maintenance dinners in the mix around here. I love this Americanized enchilada recipe because all I have to do is mix a few ingredients together and pop it in the oven. I also like that this can be vegetarian or meaty very easily: either put … Read the rest

Veggie Samosas

Veggie Samosas

One of my favorite things to get at a local Mediterranean restaurant is veggie samosas. They’re delicious, but they’re about $15 a plate. I knew I could make enough for my whole family (with leftovers) for that amount, so I used my taste buds and a bit of Internet research … Read the rest

Cheesy Broccoli Rice

We’ve got some picky eaters in this house (mostly Jake), so one of my major goals in life is to get veggies into tummies. I’ve found the solution to this: cook veggies along with a variety of other ingredients, so that they take on the flavor of the dish. Jake … Read the rest

Soggy Granny Cake

Soggy Granny Cake

My aunt Beth’s birthday was last week, and she requested that I make Soggy Granny Cake, a family recipe passed to us from my Grandma’s best friend Wendy. This cake is amazing! It’s a super moist chocolate cake with a gooey, fudgey frosting that seeps into the cake. It stands … Read the rest

Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken Pot Pie

This classic chicken pot pie is a definite crowd pleaser. The recipe comes from my Aunt Beth and is an easy version of the comfort classic.

It’s semi-homemade. Which makes it a realistic weekday meal. Also, it keeps great, so leftovers are no problem!

Biscuits and Chicken Apple Bacon Gravy

Biscuit and Chicken Apple Bacon Gravy

Biscuits and gravy is a Midwestern and Southern American breakfast staple. But like most staples from this region, it’s not exactly healthy. The gravy is usually made with sausage, but we thought we’d change up the flavor and the health level (slightly), by using chicken apple sausage instead of pork … Read the rest

Very Dairy Potato Soup

Very Dairy Potato Soup

It’s getting warm really fast here in Kansas City, so we thought we’d give one of our favorite winter recipes one more go before the heat waves roll in. We really love soups, and this baked potato soup–which is really more about the dairy than the potatoes– is our favorite … Read the rest
