Pasta Alla Vodka

Dinner | December 22, 2019 | By

Pasta Alla Vodka ~ tender pasta in a rich, delicious tomato-cream vodka sauce. Top with freshly grated parmesan cheese for an easy, restaurant quality meal in under 30 minutes.

We met a group of neighbors for dinner recently at an upscale Italian restaurant. The Pasta Alla Vodka I ordered was delicious, but definitely overpriced. I mean really, it’s still pasta at the end of the day.

My first thought was that I couldn’t wait to eat it again, but that I’d be enjoying it in the comfort of my own home, fuzzy slippers and all. Made at home, this dish is every bite delicious and doesn’t have to break the bank.

Honey Balsamic Pork Tenderloin

Dinner | October 11, 2019 | By

Honey Balsamic Pork Tenderloin recipe ~ just 20 minutes to juicy flavor-loaded sweet-tangy glazed pork made all in one pan. A delicious, easy, any-night gourmet meal.

Ever wonder what you can do in 20 minutes? I’ve wasted well more than 20 minutes surfing the internet but I’m talking doing something constructive.

How about making this Honey Balsamic Pork Tenderloin in just 20 minutes? Seriously. This delicious, glazed pork goes stove to table in less time than you get have a pizza delivered but with more flavor. Way more flavor.

The simple marinade doubles as the glaze: tangy balsamic vinegar, honey and berry jam with a dash of sriracha for a sweet heat glaze you can get enough of. 

20 minutes . . . one pan.

Isn’t that a recipe we can all get behind?

Easy Chicken Pad Thai: delicious spicy authentic flavors all made in one pot with simple everyday ingredients.

It feels like it’s been raining for 40 days and 40 nights straight. The kind of weather that demands a warm, cozy blanket and comfort food like meatloaf and mushroom gravy or this Easy Chicken Pad Thai ~ rice noodles and tender chicken pieces bathed in a spicy Asian sauce with fresh lime and cilantro along with bean sprouts and garnished with chopped peanuts.

Tonight I’m opting for Pad Thai because I have a knack for turning a simple meal like meatloaf into a sink full of pots and pans; something I’m just not in the mood for.  Easy Chicken Pad Thai is cooked completely in just one pot. I already have my sweatpants on; chances are good it’ll be a Netflix night.
