Pork Chop Casserole

Sorry I’ve been missing in action friends. It’s been a busy couple of weeks. Work is insane (as usual), AND I have a new niece. I flew home at the end of last week to visit, and she is perfect.

I received products to facilitate this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating. All opinions are 100% my own! Last Sunday was draft day, and it was a big day in our household.

This Bella Braised Chicken is something that you will go back to again and again. I have! And it’s just as delicious each time I make it, with crisp veggies and juicy chicken.

One Pot Cheeseburger Casserole

We had another snow day yesterday, and I was planning to cook and cook and cook. But then, I turned on House of Cards, and the rest of the day found me curled up on the couch.

Happy New Year! I can’t believe this is the first post of 2014….I have been busy over the holidays, but I was doing nothing! It was fabulous.

Beef Stew with Red Wine {Slow Cooker}

I spent this past weekend in Los Angeles for work– whenever I am in town, I always needs to stop in Santa Monica. I love walking on the streets overlooking the water and especially love the 3rd Street Promenade. It’s one of the few places that really makes me feel like I’m home. I used to spend a ton of… Continue reading
