Zoodle Skillet Lasagna

Zoodle Skillet Lasagna

This is one of my new favorite recipes. Seriously, there isn’t much to it, but it’s really, really good. I wasn’t so sure about the whole zucchini noodle thing, but I have to say that I’m a believer. Even my husband who isn’t a big fan of zucchini really likes this. Now, since it has…

Honey Lime Fruit Salad

Honey Lime Fruit Salad

My daughter loves fruit. Given the choice of a bowl of strawberries or a bowl of ice cream, she would take the strawberries (and then ask for the ice cream). So, I like to keep plenty of fresh fruit around for her. This Honey Lime Fruit Salad is an easy way to do that because…

Pineapple Upside-Down Carrot Cupcakes

Pineapple Upside-Down Carrot Cupcakes

Pineapple Upside-Down Carrot Cupcakes combine two great desserts – carrot cake and pineapple upside-down cake.

Bread pudding combines two of my favorite things – bread and dessert. This German Chocolate Cake Bread Pudding takes that a step farther and throws in a few more favorites – coconut, chocolate, and pecans. One of the things that I don’t love about bread pudding, though, is how sweet they can be. So often,…

One-Skillet Chicken Parmesan

One Skillet Chicken Parmesan

We don’t go out for Italian food very often, but when we do, I almost always get chicken parmesan. Just as an aside, I’ve seen it as both “parmesan” and “parmigiana”. I have no idea whether one is correct. It’s like the whole donut/doughnut issue. Anyway, I love the combination of crispy chicken, sauce, and…
