Happy Friday! I am fully embracing the fall and hitting you with another fall recipe. This is pasta with a creamy pumpkin marinara sauce. I found this recipe on Cookie & Kate website (link here). The sauce recipe has the basis of a regular marinara by using onion, bell pepper, crushed tomato, garlic and oregano….

Ground Orange Chicken

Orange chicken is such a great Chinese takeout dish. You have pieces of battered and fried chicken that are coated in a sweet and sticky orange sauce. It’s so delicious but I always feel a little guilty eating it because I know how unhealthy it is. However, today’s recipe is a lightened up spin on…

Fish Piccata

Have you ever had chicken piccata? It’s a classic Italian dish made with sliced chicken breast in a lemon, butter and caper sauce. It is so delicious. It’s a nice light meal because there is no heavy tomato sauce like many other Italian dishes and there is so much lemon juice which brightens everything up….

Homemade Pizza

Apparently it is National Cheese Pizza Day on Sunday (September 5). I don’t need much of a reason to eat pizza, but obviously I had to celebrate this special day.

Chicken Parmesan

Chicken parmesan is such a comporting Italian dish. You have the crispy breaded chicken, rich tomato sauce and then beautifully melted cheese. It’s so delicious. With that being said, I’ve never made it myself because of religious dietary restrictions. I eat chicken and cheese but not supposed to eat them together. However, over the past…

Veggie & Pesto Flatbreads

I got a great weekend recipe for you! These are delicious vegetable & pesto flatbreads. I used whole wheat pitas which were the perfect base for this. These would be good to serve to guests or just to have as a lunch for yourself. Don’t get me wrong, I love super cheesy pizza, but sometimes,…

Sheet-pan Salmon Dinner

Looking for an easy sheet-pan dinner? Here’s a delicious salmon and vegetable meal you can make on any weeknight. I used salmon for this meal but you could use chicken thighs or legs instead.
