Turkey Zuppa Toscana

There are so many restaurants that I love, and most of them aren’t franchised. However, if I had to pick my favorite franchised place to eat, it would have to be Olive Garden. I mean, who doesn’t love Italian cuisine? Before the pandemic happened, once a year, in February, Cole and I would go toContinue reading “Turkey Zuppa Toscana”

Made Rights – Loose Meat Open-Face Sandwiches

This recipe is something that most people probably haven’t heard of, but it’s a dish that my family had ALL the time growing up.

I would love to add mushrooms into all pasta dishes, but ColeContinue reading “Cheesy Chicken Alfredo Shells”

When I first started baking cakes, frosting was something that IContinue reading “Dark Chocolate Buttercream Frosting”

The concept behind this dish is very similar to apple crisp, with an apple filling layer, and a crispy top; however, since Cole isn’t a huge fan of oats that are traditionally in crisps,Continue reading “Apple Crunch”
