Salmon Tomato Chowder

Salmon Tomato Chowder

This Salmon Tomato Chowder is everything I hoped, tenderly cooked salmon married with the intense, well-developed flavors of hearty tomato chowder.

Quick Ham & Cheese Rolls

Quick Ham & Cheese Rolls

I particularly love the combination of ham & Swiss, so classic and well-loved. But what really puts this recipe OVER-THE-TOP is that little drizzle of melted butter and a dash of BBQ rub (so don’t skip those steps!). The sure sign of a recipe’s greatness??? These Ham & Cheese Rolls took 20 minutes to make and were gone in 5 minutes. Maybe I should’ve doubled the recipe!

A quick, home-cooked meal is a must for most evenings with my family and this week quick – delicious – AND fancy were all wrapped into one thanks to this EASY Miso Soy Glazed Cod recipe.

Peach Cobbler Cinnamon Roll Bake

Peach Cobbler Cinnamon Roll Bake

The combination of warm, baked cinnamon rolls and peaches with a pecans streusel topping is PERFECT. This really is one of my favorite quick breakfast/brunch recipes. Try this same basic recipe with cherry pie filling and almonds, pears and cranberries, apples and raisins… the possibilities are only limited to your pantry and imagination!

Butternut Squash was made for the cheesy bake recipe that I’m sharing with you today. The saucy, slightly acidic marinara combined with the buttery, melty cheese and the sweet, nutty, earthy butternut squash is truly a heavenly combination.

One Pan Salmon Bowl with Plums and Peppers

If you have been paying attention a little, I’m currently on a salmon dinner kick. And really — why not salmon?! It’s so easy to prepare, very versatile and ALWAYS delicious. This salmon bowl recipe came together in under 25 minutes, used only one pan and made use of my summer garden shishito peppers, a couple of over-ripe plums and a neglected apple.

Lacquered Sheet Pan Salmon

Lacquered Sheet Pan Salmon

Even after all these years of getting family dinners on the table for my herd of 6, Sheet Pan Salmon is still consistently everyone’s favorite meal. Never any complaints, never any huffy moans and never any pseudo-polite “can I have something else” –es.

Sheet Pan Balsamic Chicken Fajitas

Sheet Pan Balsamic Chicken Fajitas

This fajita chicken and veggies sheet pan recipe is delicious over a salad or rice – even wrapped in lettuce leaves. Leftovers are even better the next day because the lemony, balsamic flavors have additional time to blend with the bold taco spices. So be sure to make extra! And a little note to my veggie lovers – be sure and try the roasted celery and radishes. They are especially delicious when roasted in this taco seasoning, lemon juice and balsamic vinegar marinade.

One of my recipes, featured on the cover of the magazine Edible OKC (Lemonade Brined Smoked Chicken), is the inspiration for this VERY simple + VERY delicious 30-minute Smoked Chicken Enchiladas recipe! It helps that I tested the Edible OKC recipe 10 times resulting in
