Morning Taters

Think baked potatoes only work alongside a steak? Think again! Twice baked taters get a morning fix with eggs, bacon, cheese, and more. They make a great weekend breakfast or brunch menu item. Next time you decide to have a breakfast buffet, you'll want these on the line, too!

Sugar and Spice

Start your morning with a little extra zip by making a big batch of Triple Ginger Pear Muffins. You can freeze them and grab one, toss it in the microwave for 30 seconds, and be on your way with a fun and tasty breakfast in hand. No more excuses!

Personalizing Breakfast

Skipping breakfast? You'll never need to do so again if you whip batches of these simple mini-frittatas on the weekend. One batch makes enough for an entire week, plus one for the chef right away! Even better, you can pack them with whatever your heart desires.

Loaded Comfort

Before winter heads into our memories, it seems to be doing its best to keep us on our toes. Fight back with the ultimate in comfort food: Shepherd's Pie. But this isn't just any recipe for the popular dish. This one's loaded with garlic, sour cream, bacon, and cheese!

Weeknight Shorts: Slow-Cooked Paprika Chicken and Potatoes

Continuing a theme on quick-to-prepare meals, we look to a chicken and potato dish that's brimming with lots of flavor. What's more, it can be assembled in about 15 minutes and then you let your slow cooker do the heavy lifting while you go about your day. Dinner is served!

Creamy Without Cream

Frosting can be tricky if you have a lactose allergy. That's why I was so happy to discover a way to mimic a cream cheese frosting for pumpkin bars that's safe for those with such challenges when they sit down to the table.

Weeknight Shorts: No Ordinary Noodles

Sometimes dinner needs to happen quickly, but takeout isn't practical or doesn't appeal. Do you have a half an hour? Can you plan a little ahead? If you answered "yes" to both of those questions, then get ready for a fantastic dinner in minutes!

Soup Season

With a lot of soup recipes and soup ideas afloat, it's time to look at what you might want to put in your soup … mainly, crackers. But I'm not talking just any crackers. I am talking about little oyster crackers swimming in a seasoning of ranch and dill. Best of all: they take about 5 minutes to whip up!

The Ultimate Valentine's Day Dinner Menu

A Little Bit of Sweet

Individual servings of desserts inevitably make me think about special occasions and holidays. As Valentine's Day approaches, treat your sweetie to a special dessert that's easy to make, but will help make the day special with the combination of peppermint, chocolate, and cheesecake!
