Stuffed Pepperoni and Cheese loaf. 

So I’ve always heard that brown food means good food right??

Roasted Pistachio Pilaf with Orzo and Vermicelli 

I learned to make homemade Pilaf way back in the day from no other than the wonderful Rachael Ray. When I decided to learn how to cook again, pilaf was the very first recipe of hers that I had tried to make. It came out fantastic and I was stoked that I didn’t have to…

Creamy Pumpkin Pappardelle with spicy sausage and peas 

This is such a great fall dish!! I like to think of it as a somewhat sweet and salty combo even though there is no sugar adding going on in this pasta dish. You could most certainly use any cut of pasta for this recipe but, I choose “Pappardelle” because it’s thick and really holds…
