  • Slow cooker oatmeal (Overnight Steel-Cut Oats)

    This is a wonderful way to treat yourself nicely after a big celebration. Hardly any work and means you have a warm breakfast with no effort in the morning.

  • Rustic Italian pork chops

      A simple and tasty way to do porkchops

  • Linguine with Pea Pesto

    As summer is rolling out (dang it), I find myself wanting this dish every week. Deb from Smitten Kitchen suggests the mint as optional, but I think that plus a little lemon takes it right out of the park.

  • Kim Chee Fried Rice

    One of our go-to “cleanup the fridge” dishes. It also is fast. For a while it was a weekly dish. Really, it is that versatile and tasty.

  • Orzo pasta salad

    A family favorite at this point. I am not sure where this all came from. Maybe one of Michelle’s coworkers? Blog read? No matter what, it is a wonderful dish on those late summer nights when tomatoes are plentiful and a cool salad is all that you want for dinner.

  • Shrimp Orzo Skillet

  • Coconut Shrimp

    We ate a version of this every night in Placencia, Belize while we were there for our honeymoon. It has become a staple in our household. The coconut cream we use is Coco Lopez. You can find it on Amazon.com. Yes, it is processed, but it is such tasty, tasty processed food.

  • Shakshuka (Eggs Poached in Spicy Tomato Sauce)

    An Israli (but originally North African) dish, this is simple, quick, and made with things that we usually have on hand. Michelle made it tonight within 25 minutes, most of that cooking time. She said it was about 5 minutes of actual prep. The end result: a new favorite. 🙂
