• Creamy Mushroom Tortellini

    Posted in Recipes
    Tortellini are great on their own, but in this creamy mushrooms sauce, they are completely on another level. Your plate will look and taste like a fancy restaurant dish. With the summer months being hot, this dish will not hold you to the kitchen for hours. My kitchen has a sunroof and it gets beyond hot in there, so I try to stay out of it during the summer. My favorite tortellini is from...

  • Panera Bread Inspired Tuna Sandwich

    Posted in Recipes
    Tim and I are huge, just Huge fans of tuna sandwiches. When we go for hikes, we always pack some tuna to take with us and when we don't we are miserable the whole way back, talking about Panera bread and their tuna sandwich. This is our staple sandwich that I make pretty much on a weekly basis, especially now that it's so hot out and I don't cook as much at home. This sandwich is almost an exact...
  • Tomato Mozzarella Lettuce Salad

    This salad has been our most recent staple. Because we started taking salads to work, I've been messing around a bit with different ingredients to see what works together the most. I love the fact that this salad stays fresh for hours, that is as long as you don't add dressing to it right away. It's filling because of all the fresh cheese and at the same time it's refreshing. Cherry tomatoes...
  • Easy Garlic Knots Recipe

    Posted in Recipes
    There are always memories attached to each food piece we eat. I don't remember much of the restaurant dishes, but I sure do remember the number of great memories I had with the family meals. Back in the days, grandma use to make us garlic buns, they were my childhood favorite. Weird that as a little kid I used to love garlic, and I still do. They look so fun, puffy, shaped in knots and so...
  • Work Lunch Ideas #5

    Posted in Blog
    I started doing these lunch roundups when my husband Tim started working away from home. Now that we both work in Seattle, I feel busier than ever, packing lunches. They are a lot more simplified and for the most part, slimmed down to just salads with a bit of protein on a side. For now, I will keep lunch ideas at this post and in a few months I'll share both "His & Hers Work Lunch Ideas"....
    • Quick No-Yeast Piroshki

      Posted in Recipes
      I bet all of you have a childhood dish that you just can never forget. For me it's those quick piroshki. They were my favorite because the dough texture was very soft on the inside with a crispy outer shell. Mmmm... I can clearly remember each day we enjoyed those piroshki as kids. Mama often made them with cherries and that was my favorite combination, and...
