Rosemary & Garlic Roasted Potatoes

Growing up, my mom had to twist my arm to cook. I was not a fan. It wasn’t until I developed a crush on a professor (okay, graduate assistant instructor) in college that I decided I wanted to cook. David loved cooking and would treat his students to a buffet of delights at his home as we dropped off our big assignment. From that moment on, I wanted to learn how to cook. How lame, right? While nothing ever happened with my instructor, other than developing a nice friendship, I discovered that I wanted to learn how to cook. After college came

Chicken with Lemony Green Beans and Potatoes

Before I met my husband, I secretly hoped that I would find a man who loved to eat the dark meat on chicken. I don’t like dark meat. It’s only white meat for me, so I figured having a man who liked dark meat would be perfect. We could eat a whole chicken with no issue.  However, I had no luck in that. I met Chris and fell in love with him before I asked that all important question, “What’s your favorite? White or dark meat?” He let me know he loved white meat and couldn’t stand dark meat. And,

Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Every time fall comes, I crave comfort foods. I make lots of chili, bake pies, and cook up casseroles! Since summer is over, I feel free to use my oven more. One of my favorite comfort foods is pot roast. I remember as a little girl my mom making roast. The meat would sit in the oven for hours, surrounded by potatoes and carrots. She would use the drippings left from the meat to make a tasty gravy to go along with the roast. Yum! When I was single, I learned that I could use a slow cooker to make

Lazy Sunday Casserole

When I was single, I got to where I hated cooking. I found cooking for one to be a lonely enterprise. While I enjoyed the actual act of combining flavors and testing out new recipes, I didn’t like that I had no one to “Ooh” and “Ahh” over a dish with me.  Now that I’m married, I have someone who appreciates it when I cook something new or attempt to create a recipe. It helps that my husband, Chris, enjoys cooking as well. When we eat a new dish, we discuss how it might be improved the next time (or

Pork Chops O’Brien

Since I’m a mom with two littles, I try to make cooking easy on myself when I can. While I enjoy being creative in the kitchen, I don’t usually have the time. Hence, my tendency to go with a quick and easy recipe. This recipe for Pork Chops O’Brien that I found on Pinterest fit those requirements. The only trick to making this recipe is making sure to defrost the potatoes. I’ll have to admit that we didn’t make this on the day I originally planned because I forgot to defrost the potatoes. Oy! So, we had this the next

Whenever I got to a restaurant like Outback, Chili’s, or even Texas Roadhouse, I look at the appetizers and drool over their cheese fries, whether they be Aussie Cheese Fries or Texas Cheese Fries, they all look amazing!
