Pasta with Easy Homemade Creamy Tomato Sauce

I needed something quick and easy to make for dinner the other night. I'd just been to Lidl, and I got a pack of tricolor fusilli pugliesi, which I really wanted to use. This recipe would be good with pretty much any type of pasta, though. This is definitely coming to work with me for… Continue reading Pasta with Easy Homemade Creamy Tomato Sauce

Fish & Shrimp Chowder

I made this for dinner last night, and it was so good, but I pulled some out of the fridge today to take a photo and decided it's even better the second day.

Slow Cooker Creamy Tomato & Tortellini Soup

I tried to make a tortellini soup in the slow cooker a few years ago after seeing it on one of those Facebook videos. The recipe called for cream cheese, which never really did anything but become a chunky mess. It was definitely a fail. I've wanted to make my own version (that would actually… Continue reading Slow Cooker Creamy Tomato & Tortellini Soup

Shrimp & Grits with Andouille Sausage

I grew up in Charleston, SC, so I've definitely eaten a lot of shrimp and grits. When I moved to Philadelphia, I couldn't find any restaurants with good grits. Seriously, they were always watery and flavorless. Yuck. Bad grits everywhere meant that I was more likely to win the lottery than find good shrimp and… Continue reading Shrimp & Grits with Andouille Sausage
