20-Minute Chicken & Snap Pea Stir-Fry

It's been a long week of goodbyes around here. Several of my closest friends & colleagues got new jobs and moved off to advance their careers. Also, on Friday, it was my last day with our morning show. Starting Monday, I'll be working a more normal shift---well, as normal as TV news life goes, anyway---and… Continue reading 20-Minute Chicken & Snap Pea Stir-Fry

Chopped Thai Chicken Salad

It's cold, dreary, dry--- and the holidays are quickly approaching. What better chance than now to whip up a salad for lunch or dinner? I know, I know, it's not really salad weather.

The family that owns the… Continue reading Smoky Pork, Potato & Apple Bake

It's like a long-distance love affair that has its brilliant, passionate moments...but one that also has its unfulfilled, empty moments as… Continue reading Maryland Crab & Orzo Stuffed Tomatoes

Chicken & Veggie Skillet Dinner

Sometimes, all you want for dinner is something that you can make with one pan and one pan only. There's nothing worse than preparing a recipe and finding out you have to use 10 different pots, pans, bowls, and plates. Where's the fun in that?! You'll spend the rest of your evening doing dishes instead… Continue reading Chicken & Veggie Skillet Dinner
