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. Instead of playing a few songs and then a quick, 2-minute-ish commercial break, they play six songs and then have a seven minute long commercial break. If I'm unfortunate enough to get stuck with that… Continue reading Crispy Parmesan Chicken with Zucchini

Roasted Chipotle Butternut & Chicken Bowl

Yesterday was the first meteorlogical day of fall. Yes, that is a real thing. You can ask my morning meteorologist, Marcy. It's a real thing. It's like the "first day of summer" being June 21st...which is like two months after summer really begins here in Oklahoma. Colleen's first day of fall was about 3 weeks… Continue reading Roasted Chipotle Butternut & Chicken Bowl

Acorn Squash Stuffed with Peppers & Goat Cheese

Acorn squash is my favorite squash, if you haven't figured it out by now. It's really easy to prepare, easy to cut into, and the best vessel to stuff with a veritable smorgasbord of meats, cheeses, and veggies. I promise I will feature other squash this Squash September. I know pumpkin and acorn squash have taken… Continue reading Acorn Squash Stuffed with Peppers & Goat Cheese

Caramel Apple Pumpkin Bundt Cake

The Oklahoma State Fair is just around the corner, and with it comes my favorite fair food: caramel apples!  I always have a tough time deciding between caramel with sprinkles or caramel with nuts, but either way---caramel apples are exquisite. That's why when I ran across this recipe, I couldn't resist making it. It's insanely good! It is everything… Continue reading Caramel Apple Pumpkin Bundt Cake
