Pumpkin-Basil Spaghetti & Meatballs

Let's talk spaghetti. Spaghetti has invaded American kitchens for years. It's cheap to make, feeds a whole family, and fills you up quick.

Crispy Parmesan Chicken with Zucchini

One of my favorite radio stations here in Oklahoma City has a different format than many I've listened to throughout my life.

Roasted Veggie & Turkey Tortellini

The last few day of summer are waning. The heat has come back to Oklahoma with a vengeance. Late summer fare of corn, peaches, and Hatch green chiles flood the grocery store produce section. What have I been doing to celebrate summer's upcoming slumber? Decorating my apartment with all things fall. I actually waited a… Continue reading Roasted Veggie & Turkey Tortellini
