Tasty Tuesdays: “Quick” Ciabatta Bread

Yes, I know it’s Wednesday and yes, I know the title of this post is “Tasty Tuesdays:…” but we had a lot going on in the real world yesterday so don’t judge me.

Quick and Easy Chicken Soup

I know chicken soup isn’t new to anyone really but weirdly enough this is only the second time in my life I have ever made it!

Not Your YiaYia’s Pastitsio

Pastitsio is a baked Greek pasta dish that is rich, comforting and full of cheesy goodness.  Unfortunately, most of us can’t/don’t want to eat foods that high in saturated fats on a regular basis.  My dad’s version of this dish is lower in fat than traditional Pastitsio, prepared slightly differently and it’s absolutely delicious!  We… Continue reading Not Your YiaYia’s Pastitsio
