Rustic Pizza

Today I’m talking about a super easy and delicious pizza recipe! I can’t take all the credit for it though. Living in Texas, there was a flatbread pizza I used to LOVE from a local restaurant. I tried recreating it, since I knew everything that came on it—and my recipe turned out so good! When you make the pizza, you can use whatever crust you like, such as the prepared flat outs in the grocery store or even pita bread! I use pizza dough … Continue Reading »


Rattlesnake Pasta {with no snakes I promise!}

Hi everyone!! I’m Stephanie, Angie’s totally rad and awesome younger sister! We are exactly 2 years and one day apart, but are so completely opposite, in the best way possible!   I am a hairstylist and live with my boyfriend and dog in Michigan. I love to cook and I know my boyfriend probably loves it just as much when I cook for him! This is one of my recipes that’s his favorite called “Rattlesnake Pasta.” It is a dish from J Alexanders … Continue Reading »


Cheesy Potato Casserole {with Greek Yogurt}

This recipe is a family favorite that my mom has been making for YEARS! It’s great for large family gatherings, cookouts, and holidays! This time, I made a little adaptation to my mom’s original recipe in order to make it a touch healthier. I’m sure you could come up with more healthy changes as well!  I love how quickly I can whip this recipe together for a get together (like last night!). Once you mix everything together in a large fry pan, you just transfer … Continue Reading »


Lots of Snow & Soup

Its cold in Georgia and it even snowed here last night! It N-E-V-E-R snows here. With all the blizzard like snow, winds and cold weather around the rest of the Northeast though, I thought this post was fitting.  I made a family favorite last night–Homemade Chicken Noodle soup. Its perfect on a cold day and its EASY!!  (Confession–I made this recipe even easier and did the “lazy version” using Kroger egg noodles, instead of making homemade noodles.) This recipe comes from my father-in-law—a fabulous cook. … Continue Reading »


Healthy between the Holidays– Stir Fry

Without exaggerating, I completely “binge” ate over the last few days– Christmas cookies, homemade mac & cheese, ham, breakfast croissants, the list goes on and on. I’m sure you feel me… News Years is right around the corner too, where we will celebrate and probably “binge” again. So since all the cookies and Christmas leftovers are gone and we have this “in between” time as I like to call it…I am trying to keep it on the healthy side. Typically once a week … Continue Reading »


Easy Chicken Parmesan

Angie and I made this recipe the other night, which was fun to share together! In general, I like recipes that require simple ingredients and are still delicious. This recipe does just that and is good for a crowd too. It could be a Christmas Eve dinner idea or holiday meal while you have family in town. You also could incorporate veggies to the pasta (spinach) for some more color and nutrition! This recipe is worth the 3 or 4 dishes (not so … Continue Reading »


Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps

The sky is the limit for this type of recipe–simple, fancy, healthy or fatty. The approach I took, especially with the holidays around the corner is healthy and delicious–only requiring a few ingredients.  Place 3 chicken breasts in crockpot. I use the crockpot to cook the chicken, but if time is limited or you didn’t plan in advance, any type of cooked chicken will do for this recipe! Add 1 cup of buffalo sauce and 1 TBSP of minced garlic to the crockpot. Turn … Continue Reading »


Greek Chicken Pitas

When my husband and I were dating in college, he had an annoying health and fitness obsession (he still likes to live a healthy lifestyle, but at least it doesn’t consume his life anymore!). He collected every recipe from his Men’s Health magazines in a giant red binder. I used to think he was crazy, but I’ve actually found some awesome recipes in his stash! This is an adaptation of one of those recipes and by far our favorite! We get tons of … Continue Reading »
