Pretty Pepperoni Pasta

Why is pepperoni reserved only for pizza? It has so much to offer other dishes.

It’s got a lovely, spicy kick that adds lots of flavor, even when only a small amount is used. And, turkey pepperoni is just about as good as the real thing, so it can really liven up a healthy meal.

Potato Torta

Sorry it’s been so quiet lately, but we’ve been having a lot of Real Life at our house. Vehicle accidents, kids in trouble at school – you name it, we got it.
 
Consequently, comfort food is the dish of the day!

Chili Pappardelle with Chicken & Mushrooms

I find that pasta is like a backup singer. It supports the star without being in the spotlight, fills in where needed and makes the show complete.
 
Sometimes, the backup singer becomes the star, or maybe even better. Such as the chili flavored pappardelle I found recently at World Market!

Polynesian Meatballs

Some of the best recipes happen by chance. An ingredient needs to be used up, so a recipe is found or created to utilize it. Or, everything needed for a recipe isn’t available, so creativity happens at the last second. Many times, those recipes end up being great!

Easy Cioppino in the Slow Cooker

This is another awesome, fast and delicious slow cooker meal. Basically, you are just cooking the broth all day, then come home, throw in the fish for the last few minutes, then serve and eat.
 
A perfect meal for those crazy nights you know you won’t want to cook. Just prep everything the night before, then put the broth mixings in on your way off to work. When you get home, put the fish in and turn it up to high, put some crusty sourdough bread in the oven to warm up and 20-30 minutes later, you’re eating a hearty and satisfying meal.

Easy Chicken Adobo in the Slow Cooker

I’ve had a slow cooker for as long as I can remember. I think I got it as a wedding gift many years ago (no longer married, btw), but I never used it until a couple of years ago. Although I love using it, I don’t as much as I should.
 
Why? Because you have to think ahead and well, let’s just say that’s not my strong point. Every now and then, though, I manage to think beyond just the next hour of my life and manage to get something put together in the crockpot. And I’m always thrilled when I do.
