How to: Easy Fettuccini

Today I bring to you the most delicious and EASY Fettuccini you’ll ever eat. Watch this video to learn how! I didn’t use smoked fish, just extra vegetables (red peppers, broccoli, green beans and peas) and diced chicken. But it was amazing. Also, Jamie used reduced fat milk for the Alfredo sauce which makes it […]

Tomato Pie

Call me crazy, but I had no idea what tomato pie was until this summer. A Workshare at Crabtree brought it to lunch one day, which was my first time to taste it. Let me tell you – it was amazing! Creamy, tomatoey, cheesy…it was essentially lasagna sans noodles in a crust! My recipe is different […]

Recipe Inspiration: Easy Stir Fry

Recently, I’ve added a new hobby to my life: Teaching Cooking Classes. I meet a friend once a week or so to teach her some simple recipes and techniques that she can take with her for the rest of her life.  So far we’ve learned knife skills (though I will say that I’m not the best […]

Vegetarian and/or Meat Lasagna.

But maybe I’m just giving myself a hard time because I haven’t even tried to find a job yet? Instead, I’ve been concluding my final class online, […]

Well, in actuality I’ve been fixated on his passionate vision for several years now but incidentally put it on the shelf for a couple dozen moons until a certain YouTube search for “Jamie Oliver 30-minute-meals” brought my attention to […]

Jungle Stew

Last week, mine and Cobalt’s friends surprised us with a quick visit on their way to a concert in downtown Chattanooga. They hadn’t come to visit us since we moved from Johnson City to Chattanooga after our marriage in June 2012. So instead of going out to eat with them, we decided to make them […]
