Oven Layering

In an effort to make a fancy dinner without pulling out every pan in my kitchen, a sheet pan and a skillet become partners in an inspired meal just in time for holiday entertaining or even a special meal to be enjoyed in the quiet before the final holiday rush!

Peppermint Bark!

One year later, it's time to sing the praises of Peppermint Bark - the candy, but mostly our dear puppy. And, in his honor, I'm sharing a recipe that's easy enough for the kids to make for sharing at your next cookie and candy party.

Imitating Risotto

I love creamy risotto, but not the long simmer time and sore arm I get from all that stirring. So when things get busy, especially during the holiday season, I like to skip the rice and turn to orzo for a deceptively good stand in that's faster and low effort.

Relieving Pressure

Up the pressure to help relieve the pressure of the holidays. It's no joke — I'm offering a sub-half hour dinner plan that can happen with the help of your pressure cooker. Get some glorious comfort food on the table and relax!

Taste the Spicy Rainbow

A blend of leftovers and fresh ingredients turn gumbo into super-quick food that's both beautiful and tasty. It's just what we need as holiday preparations shift into high gear and it seems like no one has time to cook.
