One of my favorite dinners to cook in the summer is grill packets! They are super easy to make, can be prepared in advance, and give you a great excuse to sit around the fire pit at the end of the night. You don’t even have to get any plates dirty if you don’t want to. These Pesto Chicken Grill Packets are great to take along on a picnic or camping or even just to have in your own back yard. They can also be cooked on a regular gas grill or in the oven. My 9-year-old loved these and has already asked me to make them again. Enjoy!

Gluten-free certainly is a buzzword these days, but there are sooo many gluten-free products out there that are made of processed junk. Not these cookies!
I have to say, I might be the minority here, but I don’t like the Instant Pot! I honestly went into this with an open mind and have used it several times for all different types of recipes to really get a good feel for what it can do.
This easy one-pot chowder is quick enough for a weeknight dinner but tastes like it came from a fancy restaurant. Real food doesn’t have to be complicated!
The next time you go to a friend’s house, offer to bring an appetizer and make this Cheesy Chicken Dip! Warm dips are always a crowd pleaser, and this one is no exception.
After some experimenting, I’m excited to share my own super easy version of this Asian-inspired dish made in one of my all-time favorite kitchen appliances, my slow cooker!
We have another Indian-themed recipe for you to try. Similar to falafel, these split pea fritters are a plant-based protein source, bite-sized, and also fairly inexpensive (and easy!) to make.
We had our annual Holiday Dinner over the weekend with our lovely team, and it was a fun time as always. I provided the main dish – Asian Glazed Fish – and here is the recipe along with some other cooking inspiration.
This Southern roadside treasure is super easy to make at home in your slow cooker and would be a fun one to introduce to family and friends.
These cookies would be great as an after-school snack, a throw-in for the lunchbox, or even doubled up for a different on-the-go breakfast. And by doubling up, I mean that you may want two. Why not?!
I’ve got a yummy little snack to have on hand while you’ve got guests in town (or will be traveling) this week … Maple Pecan Bars! These won’t last long.
