No-Boil Baked Stuffed Mancotti

Published on January 7, 2015
No-Boil Stuffed Mancotti

Howdy, Sweetie! A few weeks ago I shared a super simple veggie and meat pasta sauce recipe with you lovely folks and today I want to tell you about my favorite way to serve it! Let me start by saying that I love lasagna. What’s not to love? Meat, cheese, noodles… have mercy! But, sometimes I want to shake up my lasagna and get out of the layered-flat-noodle-rut…that’s where this recipe comes in! This recipe is just as easy as standard lasagna (maybe easier) but adds a fun twist that kids and adults alike are sure to enjoy! Here’s what you’re gonna need: 1 container ricotta cheese 1 package manicotti noodles 2 eggs 2 cups mozzarella cheese […]

Easiest Recipes of 2014

10 Easiest (and most delicious) Recipes of 2014

Happy New Year, Sweetie! Bring on 2015! As I was perusing through the hundreds (maybe thousands) of New Year’s posts on Facebook this morning, I started wondering,  is it “Happy New Year” as in “Have a happy New Year” or is it “Happy New Year’s” as in “Happy New Year’s Eve”? I think I’ve always gone with “Happy New Year”…but I normally wish it with some bubbly under my belt so I could be remembering that wrong. My Facebook feed was split pretty evenly so I’ll let you be the tie breaker; what do you normally say when the ball drops? However you wish it, you are sure to have a wonderful 2015 while whipping up these treats! I’ve collected […]

Mint Chocolate Bundt Cake

Merry Christmas, Sweetie! Can you believe it’s already Christmas Eve? Me either! But before we break out the eggnog and loiter under some mistletoe, I have a super scrumptious holiday treat to share with you! Nothing says “Christmas” to me quite like peppermint…and nothing says “delicious” to me quite like chocolate. So as a particularly tasty Christmas gift to all of you I decided to combine them in a chocolate-y, peppermint-y, gooey bundt cake!  Don’t worry, you can make it up to me next year! But until then…let’s get cooking! Here’s what you’re gonna need: For the cake: 1 box of chocolate cake mix 1 package chocolate pudding mix 1 cup milk 1 tablespoon mint extract 1 cup chocolate chips 1 cup […]

Easy Black Cherry Mint Smoothie

Black Cherry Mint Smoothie

Howdy, Sweetie! Well, Thanksgiving has come and gone…which probably means you are up to your ears in leftover turkey and mashed potatoes. It probably also means that you have been carefully avoiding all bathrooms that contain a scale for the last few days. I do it too. No shame. But…sooner rather than later we will all have to face the dreaded post Thanksgiving weigh in (preferably some time next week, or the week after…) and one of my favorite treats to help counter act the inevitable needle-creep of the holidays are smoothies. They are nutritious, filling and most importantly…not covered in cheese and butter. The only key to making sure you’re blissfully satisfied after your smoothie and not […]
