Mexican Stuffed Shells

I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase, “a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” Well, a way to this woman’s heart is through my stomach. I’ve always been impressed by a man who can cook (and enjoys it). In fact, I find men who like to cook sexy. It means I won’t always be responsible for making dinner.  My husband and I had an unusual courtship, with most of it being long-distance. By the time we had our first “official” date, I knew I loved him. We met at Forest Park in St. Louis and had a picnic

New Family Favorite: Beefy Sour Cream Noodle Casserole

To me, there is nothing quite like a casserole! I especially loved them as a singleton because it meant I had a meal every night for a week. It doesn’t work like that now with my family, but a good casserole is always a treat. So, when I saw this recipe for Beefy Sour Cream Noodle Casserole, I had to pin it for later.  It wasn’t until later that I realized that I had already pinned it, sort of. You see, this is a variation on a Ree Drummond (The Pioneer Woman) recipe for Sour Cream Noodle Bake, I guess I’ll

Loaded Potato & Buffalo Chicken Casserole

I must be completely honest. I have tried this recipe for Loaded Potato & Buffalo Chicken Casserole once before. I LOVED it as did my husband! My parents were visiting at the time and they seemed to like it too. When I asked my mom if she wanted the recipe, she said, “No.” I was a bit surprised because I thought she liked it. She told me she did, but it was too much work. I didn’t think this was too much work, but I’m not a retiree either. I do have a board on Pinterest that I call Tried

Baked Caprese Pasta

I’ve mentioned this before, but it needs to be said again. I love pasta! Heck, my family loves pasta, especially my toddler. Whenever I hear about people going on any form of carb-free diets, I gasp in horror. How in the world can they give up pasta? So wrong, so wrong. When I see a pasta recipe that looks delicious, I can’t help but Pin it onto my pasta board on Pinterest. I found this recipe for Baked Caprese Pasta by Heather Likes Food when I was making another one of her recipes that I found on Pinterest.   (You might want to swing by

Baked Crunchy Taco Casserole

One of my go to things to cook at home is tacos! They are easy to make, and difficult to screw up. I make them often enough that I stopped buying the packets of seasoning. Instead, I buy the jar of seasoning. It is more cost-effective after all. I do try to vary how I make tacos. Tonight at dinner, I tried one recipe that I spotted on Pinterest last week for Baked Crunchy Taco Casserole. (This taco dish comes from the food blog, Heather Likes Food, FYI.) Part of what attracted me to this dish, beyond the fact that it looked
