Cooking & Baking Eats

Zucchini and Goat Cheese Crustless Quiche. If you like goat cheese, you'll love this dish. I have discovered I do not care for goat cheese but my honey loved it and wants me to make it again. You can find the recipe at

Nick and Toni's Penne Alla Vecchia Bettola. Absolutely delicious and a great dish for company if you make the sauce the night before. You can find the recipe at

Strawberry Coffee Cake. My apologies to the blogger that originally posted this as I can't remember where I found this but wish to give you credit for the recipe. It's sooo yummy. Blooper: I completely missed the step to add the streusel topping. It was great without it but I'll remember it next time.

Lemon-Garlic Spanish Chicken Thighs and Rice Pilaf. I could eat this dish at least once a week for dinner. I substituted turkey kielbasa from Trader Joe's rather than chorizo. You can find this recipe on Rachael Ray's website.

Lemon Yogurt Cake. This recipe is from my Barefoot Contessa at Home cookbook that I'm still working my way thru. Her recipes are always perfect. This cake was moist, lemony and soooo yummy. I'll be making this again soon.

Turkey Chili and Sweet Potato French Fries. I can't say enough how much I love Trader Joes. This was so quick to make and just a little bit healthier than standard chili cheese fries. The sweet potato fries can be found in the frozen food section of TJs. I baked them until crispy. I heated up 2 cans of their turkey chili with beans on the stove. Topped the fries and chili with a little shredded cheese and dinner was ready in no time at all.


  1. everything looks yummy but that lemon yogurt cake is really speaking to me....with all that glaze? YUM!

  2. Yum! Everything looks terrific. I'd love to the try those sweet potatoes fries with the chili!:)

  3. wow everything looks amazing! That lemon yogurt cake looks to die for and I want to try that strawberry coffee cake!

  4. Woah, look at that Strawberry Coffee Cake. Bursting!
