Dijon & Dill Baked Halibut With Parmesan Potatoes & Green Beans {Sheet Pan Meal}

Plate of baked halibut topped with sauce next to roasted potatoes and green beans

This baked halibut is a quick and easy one-pan meal that’s perfect for a weeknight dinner. Everything is cooked together on a baking sheet, which makes a great no-fuss meal. I made a soy-glazed salmon and asparagus sheet pan dinner recently, and decided I should make a similar recipe with another kind of fish. The

Homemade Stromboli

Homemade stromboli cut into slices on a platter with marinara sauce in a ramekin.

This stromboli recipe is great for a weeknight dinner, especially if you make the dough ahead of time. Typically stromboli includes pepperoni, salami, and ham, but this is also a great way to use up sandwich meat and cheese at the end of the week. You can also customize the herbs and spices you use

Sheet Pan Chicken With Garlic Lemon Potatoes & Green Beans

Sheet Pan Chicken With potatoes and green beans

I made this for dinner tonight (with leftovers for lunch tomorrow). This would be an easy weeknight meal – I’ll definitely be making it again after work one night. I thought the green beans would be overcooked, but they came out perfectly. I feel like the amount of potatoes was a bit disproportionate to the

Easy Chicken Tacos

Easy chicken tacos - picture of chicken with peppers and onions

I volunteer to cook at a local shelter with my church, and this month I’d signed up to prepare the main dish. It seems like every time I’m there cooking, I’m always rushing to finish on time, like I’m on an episode of a cooking show. I was able to prepare the recipe for 60

Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers

I made two strip steaks last night, and wanted to do something with the leftovers. I also had a green pepper that needed to be used, probably by tomorrow at the latest. I actually wasn’t a fan of the steak last night when I made it – it wasn’t salty enough. I normally don’t marinate

Skirt Steak Tacos with Guacamole and Chipotle Sour Cream

Skirt steak tacos with guacamole and chipotle sour cream

I wanted steak yesterday, but I also had guacamole from earlier in the week that needed to be eaten and a tomato that needed to be used. I also had a couple of ¾ pound packages of outside skirt steak in my freezer that I got on mega sale at Wegmans a couple of weeks

Sauteed Rustic Herb Green Beans

This is one of the sides I made the other night to go with the steak. This uses one of the seasoning blends from Tastefully Simple*. Sometimes people ask why I buy seasoning blends like that when I like cooking from scratch so much. Well, there are times when I just don’t want to have

Super Fudgy Brownies

These brownies are one of my favorites, and they’re not even super homemade. If you need to throw together a baked something-or-other for a bake sale, birthday, office party, or whatever – these are very easy and fast. And everyone loves them! Ingredients 1 box brownie mix + everything the box says you need 1

Buffalo Chicken Crescent Spirals

I needed to make dinner one night, and I’d forgotten to take anything out. Oops. Strangely, I had buffalo chicken dip left over from a party. (This was strange because my buffalo chicken dip usually gets scarfed down and I end up wishing I’d made more.) Anyway, back to the dinner thing. I always keep
