With Thanksgiving (and therefore lots of over-indulging ) around the corner, I am making extra sure to mix in some lighter meals over the next few weeks. Though with the tortellini this is surely not a 'low calorie' meal, I think it is a much healthier alternative to a pasta dish smothered in meat and a heavy-duty cream sauce! It however still hits all the fall comfort marks, and is a great vegetarian recipe. I hope you enjoy!
This pumpkin pancake recipe is a serious keeper - there is nothing better than a pumpkin theme brunch in fall if you ask me!
This Creamy Tuscan Chicken recipe is so simple, and so worth it! I served it over mashed potatoes, and it totally hit the comfort food spot for me. This is a perfect and easy fall dinner that I hope you love!
Did you know that homemade biscuits are so easy to throw together, and that you can bake them in the time that it takes you to make this sausage gravy? Biscuits and Gravy are such a hearty and delicious meal that make me think of a foggy fall morning where you plan to have a jumbo brunch and snuggle under a blanket on your couch with coffee all morning. This recipe has both ingredients and directions for both parts, but I would save this biscuit recipe and make them as a side for dinner now and again too!
There are some recipes that you just need to have on-hand. A good yellow cake is on the top of my list! I love making this yellow cake recipe with chocolate frosting, or during summer switching things up and making a lemon version. A must save for sure!
A twist on the plain old banana muffin recipe using sour cream in place of milk. These are quick, easy, and a delicious recipe to start your morning out with! Be sure to pin for later 🙂
Nutella is all the rage these days. I honestly find it a little sweet for a breakfast kind of food, but I do enjoy it on a cake when I am already expecting a very sugary flavor. This cake combines a lot of different flavors - banana, chocolate, and nutella. I think it is a great diversion from a normal yellow or chocolate cake, so if you are in the mood to try something new, I would give this a try for sure!
Red Velvet cake serves as a great option for a few holidays, and I think that 4th of July is totally one of them. Search no further for dessert ideas for your 4th of July spread this year, and try out the recipe linked for this beautiful Red Velvet American Flag cake!
I feel like all you need to do is read the title of this recipe to know that it is friggin delicious. A few months back, I would have never thought to eat scallops in a heavier cream sauce like this, but then an experience dining out where I had BAKED scallops in a lovely flavorful sauce just like this sold me for life! Scallops. Bacon. Cream. This recipe is a winner!
Chickpea Gyros - one of my favorite Meatless Monday Recipes! I find them very filling and my husband and toddler agree. This is a vegetarian recipe that no one should pass up!
