Penne Pesto

I recently taught a cooking class online using Zoom for a group of women….I had never done this before and I was a little bit nervous…but turns out once everyone showed up it was so much fun and I had a blast! I decided to share a recipe that was very easy…Penne Pesto…one of my go-to’s when the family is very hungry and dinner has to be ready in under 30 (actually 20!) minutes…

Philly Cheese Steak Deep Dish Pizza, 80’s Style

I wanted to make this cheese steak pizza because I see people making them but not the way I remember eating them when I lived in Philly in the late 80’s and early 90’s.

Spinach, Mushroom & Cheese Egg White Frittata


All of us I’m sure have the Go-To dinners when you just don’t want to fuss in the kitchen. One of my Go-To favorites is Pasta Carbonara. As easy as separating a bunch of eggs and boiling some pasta. Well, now on the following day for lunch I make an Egg White Frittata with whatever I have in the refrigerator. It’s my favorite way to use up all the unused egg whites and whatever cooked veggies I have as leftovers. Plus my Hubby will eat it again for breakfast the next morning! Win, Win, Win!

Delicioso! Continue reading

Greek Rainbow Quinoa Salad


I know I’m late to the party, but it took me until now to jump on the quinoa wagon… Now I can say I’m a fan! Wanting to make something easy that I can grab when I need a quick bite, and having way too many jars of Kalamata olives, I decided to go Greek. It turned out just what was needed for an easy ‘pick me up’ during the day. Continue reading
