Shepherd’s Pie

Shepherd’s Pie is like a really good hug. Not a weak little squeeze but a full on smothering grandma hug! It’s warm and comforting in every bite of gravy, meat, vegetables, and homemade mashed potatoes. It is a delicious big ole pan of goodness. Technically, this is cottage pie since it is not using the […]

Tuscan Chicken

Tuscan chicken is a one pan beauty that boasts a wonderful flavor combination of spinach, shallots, cream, and the rock star sun dried tomatoes. Really the sun dried tomatoes are my favorite part of this creamy sauce. They rehydrate and wake up over time, flavoring the whole sauce while still playing well with the other […]

Salmon Dill Sauce

Dinner tonight is salmon with a fresh dill sauce. I love that this sauce works warm on the salmon or cold served on the side. There is something so refreshing and complimentary of pairing salmon with fresh dill. I don’t know what it is, but they accentuate each other’s flavor so well. It is such […]

Taco Casserole

Taco casserole hits all the notes you want from a weeknight Mexican dish. You only need one cast iron skillet and stables from the pantry. The casserole goes together quick and bakes during homework time. Full of vegetables and beans, it is an all-in-one dish. I make my own taco seasoning too so no need […]

Dutch Oven Pot Roast

What is it about pot roast with vegetables that makes you feel like home? It is a Sunday classic that mom seemed to cook all day for a delicious family dinner at the table. I have to be honest, I prefer the vegetables cooked to tender in the roast juice over the roast itself. Don’t […]

Crab Dip

This crab dip is so crave-tastic, I may have eaten the leftover for lunch the next day. Ok I did. I’m not sorry. A few weeks ago, I hosted a low country boil at my house with shrimp, red potatoes, corn on the cob, and crawfish. I could not find any good looking crab legs. […]

Salmon Cakes

I did not grow up eating salmon but Ron did. When you live and fish in Alaska, salmon is a staple in your fridge or freezer. His parents had so much salmon that they bought a canner and taught themselves how to can it fresh. It is delicious! Nowadays you can pick up fresh canned […]
