Watch how easy this is.

      So a few weeks back at Whole Foods in Tulsa, I got this really cute pasta. I know, pasta is generally not thought of as “cute”, but I am a sucker for unique pasta in all shapes, sizes and colors.  Casarecce pasta, sometimes called “scroll pasta’ is one of those pastas designed brilliantly to…

  • Chicken Saltimbocca

    April 10, 2012DishinandDishes

    Chicken Saltimbocca means to literally “jump in your mouth”. Chicken Saltimbocca has many variations.  Most use sage as I do here in my recipe.  Some vary and use thyme.  Some layer on cheese, tomatoes or spinach.

    Although my kids love green bean casserole and would probably want to mutiny and take away my “Mom status” this Thanksgiving for not making it, my grown-up tastes are leaning towards, shall I say less “canned soup” type of dishes?  I should also add that my kids ask for this recipe for Green Beans Almondine…

  • The Best Salsa Recipe

    March 22, 2012DishinandDishes

    I started making this recipe years ago, and it has remained a favorite in my family ever since.  If I try to put a jarred salsa on the table, my kids mutiny against me and threaten to not clean their rooms until I make the good stuff. Just kidding on the kids…but they really do…
