Baking Bites for Craftsy: Brown Sugar & Whiskey-Glazed Ham

Baking Bites for Craftsy: Brown Sugar & Whiskey-Glazed Ham

I’ll admit that I usually bake sweet things, but that doesn’t mean they’re the only things I use my oven for! I also make a wide variety of breads, roasts, pasta dishes and other savory items, though not all of them end up here on the site. During the holidays, there are two main dishes that are part of my family’s traditions: turkey and ham. ... Read More »

Walnut Cheddar Pesto

Walnut Pesto

When you think of pesto, you probably think of a basil-heavy green sauce made with pine nuts and garlic. This is indeed a pesto, and it is probably the most common type of pesto out there. What you might not know is that these ingredients do not define “pesto.” The name “pesto” means “to crush” and it refers to the fact that nuts, herbs and ... Read More »

Homemade Chipotle Chicken Enchiladas

Chicken Enchilada tray

In addition to dessert, I do eat dinner once in a while and I generally like things to be nice and easy to make on any given weeknight. I’m a big fan of enchiladas, but they’re one of those dishes that I never really tried to make at home because they seemed like they’d be time consuming. Fortunately, they’re not at all difficult to make ... Read More »

Beef, Spinach and Mushroom Lasagna

Beef, Spinach and Mushroom Lasagna

Lasagna is one of those dishes that seems like it is going to be tricky and time consuming to make, but is actually quite easy to prepare. It makes a big batch, so it is a great dish to make to feed a crowd, but it is also a good option for a smaller group, since you can slice it up and freeze portions, ready ... Read More »

Chicken and dumplings is classic American comfort food. It’s one of those dishes that you just want to curl up with on a cold winter night since it’s hearty, flavorful and can be very easy to make. If you’ve never had it, chicken and dumplings is a lot like chicken soup (very heavy on the chicken) with steamed biscuits floating in it. The chicken and ... Read More »

Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Baked Macaroni and Cheese

When I was a kid, macaroni and cheese was one of my favorite dinners. I suspect that there are lots of former kids out there who would say the exact same thing. Everyone has a different “type” of macaroni and cheese that they favor. I know some people who like it go be gooey, with strings of melted cheese coming off of every forkful. I ... Read More »

Deep Dish Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken Pot Pie, served

Chicken pot pie is comfort food, no doubt about it. As with all types of comfort food, everyone has their own way of making it – and there are tons of freezer-read options available that try and entice people not to make it themselves. Chicken pot pie is definitely worth making at home because it is so much better than the frozen pies you can ... Read More »

Sausage and Mushroom Crustless Quiche

Sausage and Mushroom Crustless Quiche

Crustless Quiche is one of my favorite easy dinner dishes to make. Quiche doesn’t sound like it would be a quick-fix dish at any time, but this quiche doesn’t use a traditional pastry crust, which really cuts down on the prep time. Instead, the quiche filling includes some all purpose flour and baking powder, in addition to eggs, milk and other standard quiche ingredients. In ... Read More »
