Easter Dutch Baby Pancake

What did you have Easter Morning?  I can hardly believe it was one week ago today.  This Sunday morning was like most others, morning devotions, some quite time, and than several dynamic stretches before I headed out for my run.  As usual, I rushed to get ready for church getting there in the nick of time.  Seems like no matter how much time I have to get ready for church, we almost always are running late.

Creamy Asparagus Soup

I get it, asparagus soup is not all that exciting compared to a cheesy pasta dish, a chocolate treat, or even a fat juicy burger, (sorry no burger as of yet)!  But since I am getting so much flack for not sharing my asparagus soup recipe I promised to blog about weeks ago, I thought I should get busy before I get banned from our next runners group gathering.

Red Snapper with Basil & Tomato Saffron Sauce

Happy Friday!   Or whatever day it is based on when you’re reading this.  Friday during lent season many families, whether they are Catholic, Lutheran, Baptist, etc, possibly attend several fish fries throughout they’re neighborhood up until Easter.  In fact, I grew up never missing the Cedar Mills Fish Fry as a kid.

Thai Chicken Cashew Stir Fry

Tonight I am finally getting around to sharing what I made my husband for Valentine’s Day.  Better late than never right!  These remodeling projects have definitely turned my life upside down.

Pasta is definitely my husbands fave but Chinese is a close second!  When I surprised him with this Thai Chicken Stir Fry, he was more than pleased.  It’s probably not like anything we had in China, or as good as what my friend Tina makes, but authentic or not, it’s a dynamite stir-fry dish that is perfect for any weeknight dinner!

Crusty Baked Cauliflower & Pasta “Hot-Dish”

Do you enjoy a good casserole?  If you’re from Minnesota, we refer to them as hot dishes.  Well known fact, when my mom suggested making her delicious chicken noodle hot dish for family out East, they replied, “hot dish?  What’s a hot dish?”   I think they thought us Minnesotan’s were a bit odd?  Turns out, her hot dish was a big hit!  It was so good, it’s still requested and served with much love by my mom when they visit us here in Minnesota!
