I've come a long way since trying my first zucchini noodle. In 2016, I made a chow mein with them for the first time. I cooked the zucchini too much then and ended up with a floppy zucchini noodle. The dish still tasted okay, but the texture threw me for a loop. Fast forward to… Continue reading Creamy Herb & Shrimp Pasta
Who need chicken noodle soup when you can make it better? And I mean MUCH better. Season chicken in Greek seasoning and cook this soup with orzo, sun-dried tomatoes, capers, and kalamata olives. Soup has never tasted better!

I'm talking toaster streudels, Eggo waffles, Fritos with bean dip...and ramen. Ah, ramen. The little 10 cent packages that contain… Continue reading Beef and Broccoli Ramen
The wind sure is sweeping down the plain here in Oklahoma. We're gusting to 30 miles per hour almost, and have already seen a few grassfires spark out west. There's an ugly brown hue replacing the brilliant blue sky. Even when we're blessed with some warmer weather, we're cursed with these hellish winds. You've got… Continue reading Barbecue Ranch Chicken Casserole
