Chipotle-Potato Mexican Lasagna Recipe {Gluten-Free}

Chipotle-Potato Mexican Lasagna Recipe {Gluten-Free} |

It’s the pretty celadon green casserole dish in these images that inspired this recipe. Though this isn’t typically how I create recipes, I love when it happens.  Normally I select the dish, pan, plates, etc.,  based on what I’ve cooked or want to cook.  Not the other way around.

Simple Honey-Lemon Roasted Chicken | Cooking On The Weekends

The other day a friend asked if my recipes are “involved.” “Why yes,” I said.  “I like to make a day of it.”  It’s totally true for me  — the longer the cooking project the better.  However, I don’t always have the time, and I realize that this certainly isn’t the case for everyone.  So […]

November 1-Wild Mushroom Polenta

I am really and truly not a food snob, unless . . . .  you want me to eat “fake” meat.  Morning Strips?  No thank you. “Chickin’? No thank you. Maybe this is unfair of me since I’m not a vegetarian and enjoy nothing more that braised short ribs on a cool, winter day.  And […]

Sardinian Pasta


I think a traditional Sardinian pasta dish usually includes saffron and sausage.  And by “I think,” I mean it’s an educated guess. This is not at all a traditional dish from Sardinia, and both of those (albeit delicious), ingredients are not in it. I’m calling it “Sardinian Pasta,” for two reasons. by

Friday Flowers: Passion Flowers and Roasted Pepper Potato Soup with Smoky Chipotle Parmesan French Fries
