This pasta salad is your perfect picnic dish. Whether it’s just the two of you out for a hike in the woods, or it’s a family reunion, this salad will be a crowd pleaser. Zach and I took this on our trip back East. It travels easily, and because it’s meant to be cold, there’s …

Zach and I are both huge fans of deviled eggs; and although they are absolutely delicious, they don’t travel very well. You need a special container, and then you have to keep them cold. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a cooler larger enough to hold a deviled egg …

This chicken salad was an addition to our menu for our road trip back East for Thanksgiving. It was in one word “fantabulous.” It was so good, that this is basically what I ate every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner on our trip. It’s so easy. There is no cooking involved (except for the …

Believe it or not, this recipe was a tougher job than we had thought. Not because the muffins were difficult to make, but because it took us forever to find the recipe! This is actually Zach’s recipe: one that he’s had for over 10 years. The problem with Zach, is that he tends to misplace …

Because winter is just around the corner and all of those fall/winter veggies are gracing the market’s shelves, we decided to go with a wintertime version of our Summertime Huevos Rancheros recipe. What a spectacular idea …

Who doesn’t love stuffed shells? They are little pockets filled with cheesy goodness. Most commonly though, when you think of stuffed shells you think of the traditional recipe of ricotta, a red sauce and sometimes sausage or another type of meat. Because it is fall, we decided eliminate the red sauce and sausage and add …

Growing up, I was raised in NJ, but most of our extended family was from the Pittsburgh area. Every 4th of July we would go back to visit, when the 4th of July festival was going on. This festival was a crafter’s dream, but it also had and still has delicious food. Meatball sandwiches and …
