There's a chance, albeit a brief, fleeting chance...that OKC gets its FIRST SNOW today! We'll get a trace amount. It probably won't stick to the ground. But I AM LIVING FOR IT. I've been beaming ear-to-ear since Monday. The clouds haven't stopped blanketing the sky since then, and it's been cold, drizzly and dreary...but THIS… Continue reading Creamy Gnocchi & Sausage Skillet
A simple road trip can never be simple in my family. After two decades of traversing all over the West and Southeast with my parents, I've used a bit of that nostalgia when it comes to doing road trips with my husband. I'll plot scenic detours and edible destinations along the way. I'll research the… Continue reading Sausage, White Bean & Spinach Soup
It's one of those days where I had to drag myself out of bed. I'm not feeling great, and snoozing my alarm four times didn't help matters much at all. I'm trying to get this coffee to perk me up now so I can go on about my day with a clear mind. Here's hoping… Continue reading Asian Chicken Noodle Soup
It feels like I have a short work-week this week when I really don't. I'm leaving Friday as soon as I get off work to fly to Montana and spend the holidays with my family. I keep thinking about all the things I have to do before I leave and it's making it seem like… Continue reading Vegetable Loaded Chicken & Wild Rice Soup
It has been a lazy weekend in the Welcher household. Since we had planned on being snowed in on Saturday, we had nothing in the works to get out of the house. Neither the snow nor the ice came but our plans were unwavering: stay on the couch, in our pajamas, for 24 hours or… Continue reading Cinnamon Roll Cake Balls
Does anyone know how to pronounce 'gnocchi'? I've been saying it like 'no-key' my whole life and I have no idea if that's right or not. I'm just assuming the 'g' is silent. I've heard people pronounce it like 'noque-ee' before, with a more French-like annunciation on the 'no' sound. Who is right? I was… Continue reading Chicken & Gnocchi Soup
Red pepper sauce is one of the easiest of all sauces to make, and it tastes so good baked with chicken breast & goat cheese.
Use frozen meatballs to make this dinner in a breeze. Slowcooked to delicious goodness and topped with Parmesan, this Swedish meatball soup is a good one for cold winter nights.
I've been thinking about butter this morning. I don't know why, but an old meme popped into my head randomly a few hours ago. The one from Mean Girls...where Regina George asks, "is butter a carb?" and the next cut screen on the internet image shows Paula Deen with the caption, "butter is everything, b*tch."… Continue reading Cowboy Butter Chicken With Zucchini Noodles
We've been eating pretty terribly in this house lately. I'm talking tacos, pizza, candy...the whole shebang. I even impulse bought some imported matcha Kit Kats the other day at Super Cao and have almost eaten the whole bag. IN ONE DAY. One. Day. I hate this time of year. Everyone is all about the New… Continue reading Jerk Chicken & Mango Lettuce Wraps
