Inside Out Ravioli

Are we all recovering nicely from our sugar hangovers? I kind of wish sugar hangovers were a thing because then maybe it would slow Baby Girl down for an hour or two. She is like a freaking cyclone. And remember how I complained about the stupid Easter grass we are all forced to put in our baskets if we want to be accomplished parents? IT. IS. EVERYWHERE. ALREADY! How does that even happen? I spent yesterday moping because we spent the weekend in bright and shiny Mesquite wit

Broccoli Alfredo Tortellini with Bacon

There’s tortellini, and then there’s alfredo tortellini and then there’s alfredo tortellini with broccoli in it… and THEN there is Broccoli Alfredo Tortellini with BACON. BACON! This stuff is already filthy rich and then I added bacon and I basically went into a delicious cheese covered bacon coma. I think if I was to become a vegetarian, (don’t worry, Dad. I won’t) I would probably miss bacon the most. If I was a pig, I’d probably be a cannibal. Weird thought. One of the thi

Shrimp Broccoli Alfredo

YO PEEPS! It has been SO long since the last time I posted and I am SO sorry. I hope that you missed me, because I totally missed you. I caught this crazy virus that took me out for almost three weeks. It was like half mono, half pneumonia, half bubonic plague. Granted I’m not super great at math, but it was miserable. Like, seriously. All of my neighbors thought I was dead. I didn’t post on social media, or here on the blog, and my car didn’t move. It’s kind of good to know

Shrimp Pasta with Tomato Cream Sauce

There will be literal face stuffing in this blog post. Stay tuned. It shouldn’t surprise you though because this pasta is AMAZING. I mean, look at it! Pastas with creamy tomato sauce totally get me. Then you go ahead and add shrimp and it’s like my nirvana. There is a little bit of crushed red pepper and paprika for a nice smoky kick, as well. FYI, the smell of fresh garlic and onions sautéing has to be one of my favorite kitchen smells. It’s right up there with freshly baked

Clam Spaghetti

This. Is. The. Stuff. This pasta makes for an insanely delicious dinner. Unlike other pastas, it doesn’t call for gallons of sauce to provide flavor. Which is good news for all of us because that means we get to eat delicious pasta without packing on the pounds. It also comes together in 30 minutes or less, and is pretty to boot. One of my favorite parts about this recipe though is that it is even better the next day as leftovers. The extra day provides time for the flavors t

Jen’s Pasta Sauce

I got this recipe from Famous Julie, who got it from her sister, Aunt Jenny. Aunt Jenny is one of the most wonderful and funny human beings on this entire planet. I rarely get to see her because she lives so far away and stays super busy saving the world and all the people in it, but I always look forward to the time we spend together. She also always has the most fabulous recipes including this super simple, yet incredibly delicious pasta sauce. She’s just way too cool for s

Spinach Tomato Tortellini

Not only do I come from a family of amazing cooks, but I married into a family full of amazing cooks. I am seriously surrounded by so many talented people everywhere I go! I got this recipe from my awesome sister-in-law Jennifer. Jenn is a super fun mom, a talented piano player (and instructor if you know anyone in the Lehi, Utah area that needs a teacher) and an amazing cook and cake decorator. She made my wedding cake and not only was it absolutely gorgeous, but it was supe

Momma Steed’s Shrimp Linguini

This linguini will blow your mind. But if you aren’t a big fan of shrimp don’t leave just yet! I had a great friend in high school who LOVED this stuff…. and hates shrimp. In our high school yearbook, all the senior athletes were interviewed and one of the questions asked was, “What is your favorite food?” to which her response was, “Momma Steed’s Shrimp Linguini without the shrimp.” True story.
