Say it with me.. Spa-ghe-tti Cassssserole

Say it with me.. Spa-ghe-tti Cassssserole

Oh has this recipe been tried and proven true time and time again. This is a hands-down middle of the week meal winner for sure. It is sure to please even the pickiest of eaters and yet also delight a more “mature” pallet. I am using the word “mature” to prove a point lol.

Punch with a punch. Dry, white wine >>>> Sweet, white wine

I posted this punch in my recipes section on this site a while back. I remember the first time I tried it. Yum, yumm, yummm. I can now say I have served it at a few different events.

Pick your favorites, omit the ones you turn your nose up to and enjoy the…

Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie

Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie

Eleven p.m. and I walk into the kitchen. Set an alarm just for this. Chicken, garlic breathed in deeply. Yum. Well now that I have a big-girl job and I am at work/on-the-road from 6:30 – 6:30 everyday, I have had to be a bit more creative with my crockpot recipes. I can’t just set it and forget it for 12 hours! So took advice from the good-ole mother and made it the night before. This recipe is easy and really hits the spot. Note: almost all of the ingredients…

So Easy Pulled Pork

So Easy Pulled Pork

So Easy Pulled Pork One thing about being in college that some may not remember or realize is that we have long days too! Granted we don’t usually wake up before 8am but we may not get home until 6 or 7pm either. This is why quick and easy recipes are so important. This recipe is certainly not quick but it is beyond easy. The reason for this is due to my handy-dandy crockpot. After I accumulate recipes on here you will begin to notice a trend in most of…
