So last week was the start of March Madness, and my husband decided to take a well deserved day off. A couple of his friends were coming over to watch the games together, and I was supplying them with the food. This Spinach Artichoke Dip was the perfect dip for them to enjoy.

I didn’t always like seafood, let alone Shrimp Scampi! I think growing up in the Midwest as beef and potatoes eating people, really hindered me even wanting to try it in the first place. Also, my mother doesn’t like fish at all, and as the person who cooked in the house, you can imagine that the following meal wasn’t ever on the menu!
So when I met my husband and he loved fish we had a little problem. I remember meeting his Dad for the first time; when we were out to eat and he ordered calamari he couldn’t understand why I didn’t eat fish, so he teased me until I tried a piece. I still don’t really care for calamari today, but it was a start. As time went on my husband would always “encourage” me to try a bite anytime he ordered fish.

On the week nights I don’t like to always spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Plus, with spring coming along we now have a schedule full of after school activities for our kids. Between two soccer teams and swim lessons, it leaves for little time and extremely hungry kids. [Read more…] about Steak and Bok Choy Stir Fry
We are getting pretty excited for the big game tonight, here in this house! Did your team make it to the Sweet 16 this year? While we are waiting around for the game to start, I thought I would whip up some mini cauliflower pizza crust.
I searched for quite some time to find a crust that didn’t have cheese in it. I couldn’t find one so I decided to create my own. Not only would I create a non-cheese version, I thought I would make one with cheese and compare the two to make sure that my non-cheese version stacked up against the cheese version.

Grandma’s Recipe Box
This week when I was trying to decide what to make out of my Grandma’s recipe box, I wanted something quick and easy. Well when I came across the cinnamon-swirl quick bread, I knew this is what I had to make. This takes less then ten minutes to get everything mixed up and into the oven.
