Cheesy Taco Pasta

So maybe taco pasta is a culinary fusion I’d never tried before.  But both my children love tacos (well tacos with just meat and cheese) and both my children love pasta.  So the other day I decided to make a cheesy taco pasta.  I mean why not?   I had all the ingredients for tacos so


Mediterranean Chicken Tacos

I love tacos.  There I said it.  There should be a support group for people like me that love tacos.   We could call it Tacos Anonymous.  Except it wouldn’t really be anonymous.  And we could serve tacos as refreshments.  I mean, if you were to tell me say during the middle of my workout class


Red Wine Roasted Tomatoes

I had an abundance of cherry tomatoes this summer.  It wasn’t that it was a particularly good year for my garden it was probably more so that my neighbors had a good year for their gardens.  I like to think that I have a green thumb, but it’s probably more likely that I have a


Taco Salad

I don’t usually make salad for the fam.  I think it’s because there’s an awful lot of work that goes into making it and usually it’s only KB and me that will eat it.  I mean my kids will eat some of what goes into the salad…except the lettuce.  So there’s that.  BUT I will


Easy Peas-y Macaroni Salad

Whenever I want to get the kids to eat peas, I put them in another dish.  When they were babies, they used to LOVE them.  But of course I think that was just because I dumped a spoonful of peas on their high chair tray and let them practice feeding themselves.  Which probably would have


Breakfast Street Tacos

Did you know there’s such a thing as a taco diet?  A diet in which you eat only tacos.  I think I could be onboard with that.  Tacos are seriously my favorite.   The kids love them too.  Sometimes when I’m making something I don’t think they’ll eat, I put it in a tortilla and tell


Barbecue Chicken Quesadilla

My children went through a phase when they would only eat quesadillas.  It seemed kind of weird to me at the time (to eat the same thing every day), but then again, these are the same children that will eat chicken nuggets for breakfast without a second thought.  Quesadillas are really just like grilled cheese


Hot Dog Grilled Cheese

Who doesn’t love a good grilled cheese?  I know I do!  My children do too.  So does KB.  He’s really into this grilled cheese restaurant that opened a location near us.  The other location is about 30 minutes away but this one is about 7 minutes, which may prove to be dangerous.  I mean it’s


Cheesy Mushroom Toast

I wouldn’t say I’m obsessed with avocado toast.  Trust me I’ve had it and you won’t hear me complaining. There’s something very comforting about toast…the ultimate carbohydrate as a vehicle for deliciousness.  And I always make toast with real butter.  Real, salted, butter.  Absolutely nothing wrong with that.  A crispy piece of bread slathered with


Lobstah Grilled Cheese

When I lived in CT I could get lobster any time I wanted.  It was one of the top 3 reasons I liked living in CT. I could get a lobster roll year round.  Of course they tasted better in the summer, when we were outside, sitting near the water.  But any time there was
