Lightened Up Chicken Parmesan Skillet + More with Antonia Lofaso

When I was first contacted and asked if I was interested in interviewing Antonia, my first reaction was to turn it down. I thought there was no way I could do it. I’m an introvert. I don’t even like calling to order pizza and now I have to talk to this incredibly talented, famous chef?

Three Cheese Fondue

Fondue is usually our go to meal on evenings when Noah spends the night at my parent’s house. He’s a cheese and carboholic but I’ve just never felt comfortable letting him eat something with so much wine in it. Poor guy would be ticked if he knew what was going on when he wasn’t around. I’ve made many

Parmesan and Cracked Pepper Whole Wheat Focaccia

During the hot days of summer, Noah and I spent a lot of time at the library browsing the shelves for Clifford and cookbooks. The deal was always that he got to pick a few books, do some puzzles in the kid area and then he would tolerate me looking through the cookbook section for a

Pizza Hut Breadsticks

5 Cheese Pasta Bake

My dad doesn’t like cheese. Seriously, it’s lucky I love him because otherwise he would have to be disowned. Who doesn’t like cheese? I truly don’t understand what would cause such a thing? I totally get people not liking blue cheese or gorgonzola. Those are strong cheeses and a bit too much sometimes. But cheddar,

Parmesan Crusted Filet Mignon

If you are having a small holiday celebration, this is a perfect option over the big traditional ham. I actually made these quite awhile ago for our anniversary and they were a huge hit. The combination of the tenderness of the steak with the crunchy, cheesy texture of the crust was incredible and over the top. I went

Balsamic Chicken Pasta Salad

I kind of have an addiction to pasta salad (well any pasta really if we are being honest here) and this Balsamic Chicken Pasta Salad is one of the best ones I have ever made. I love balsamic vinegar and the combination of it with the bacon, chicken, tomatoes and onion was just amazing. It is really fresh and

Cheesy Bread

Delicious dough, topped with butter and tons of cheese….what’s not to love? We are big on pizza in our house. It’s Joel’s favorite food and I’m pretty sure he would eat it everyday if I let him. Whenever we go out for pizza, cheesy bread always pulls me in and gets me every time. I
