Typically, when I think of gnocchi, I imagine it prepared in a traditional “pasta type” recipe. I really like it with a spicy tomato cream sauce, or even with a brown butter sauce. Considering that gnocchi is made of potatoes, I decided to try something different and make this Loaded Gnocchi Skillet. I love to top my potatoes with cheese, bacon and green onion, so I thought the same set-up might just work for gnocchi, and it sure did!
One of our favorite guilty pleasure foods is Chinese take-out. I know that it is a far cry from authentic Chinese food, but it is just so delicious! General Tso’s Chicken is the dish that I order more often than any other because the sweet, salty and spicy flavor combination is just so perfect. I decided to take those amazing flavors, and create a creamy General Tso’s Chicken dip that is easy to make and great for sharing with friends!

Spinach artichoke dip is one of my favorite appetizers to order at a restaurant. I could probably eat the whole order of it on my own, to be honest. I wanted to take those amazing ingredients and flavors and make a main dish out of it. There’s no reason all of that creamy deliciousness has to be contained to just the first course! This Instant Pot Spinach Artichoke Chicken Pasta is made completely in you pressure cooker for an easy meal with even easier clean up!
What is your favorite side dish? I mean – like your VERY favorite. You know if you could only have one side dish for the rest of your life, what would it be? For me, it would be mashed potatoes – no question! As much as I love mashed potatoes, they aren’t always the most waistline friendly food. Not to worry! I have an alternative! This Easy and Healthy Mashed Cauliflower is a great low calorie (176 per serving) and low carb (5 net per serving) option, and to be honest, it tastes pretty darn good!
No one ever said that soups, stews and chowders are only for the winter! This Summer Corn Chowder is the perfect way to enjoy a comforting bowl of chowder at this time of year.

No one ever said mashed potatoes have to be overloaded with heavy and high calorie ingredients to be delicious. These mashed red potatoes are only 305 calories per serving, and it isn’t a skimpy serving either! Although this is a lighter version, the flavor and comforting taste is definitely not lacking. You will not miss your normal mashed potatoes at all! An added bonus for this recipe is the red potato skins. These skins are thin and delicious and packed with lots of fiber, B vitamins, iron and potassium.
