Spicy Chicken Noodle Stir Fry

When I was a kid, I always thought Chinese food was really hip ( I know old lady slang…lol). When I saw it being ordered on TV shows or in movies, I thought someday I will be ordering to-go Chinese (kid goals). Fast forward a few years, and I would rather make my own Chinese. Spicy Chicken Noodle Stir Fry is take-out at home!

Tim is not a huge fan of take-out Chinese. I, on the other hand, love it! As a compromise, I make it at home.

Shrimp Scampi Pizza

If you are looking for a unique pizza, Shrimp Scampi Pizza is it!!

Shrimp Scampi Pizza

Valentines Day is just around the corner, and of course, romantic recipes are all over the internet. Shrimp Scampi pops up a lot. So that got me to thinking…..I know dangerous right!!

Tim and I are not real big on large romantic gestures but we do enjoy a nice meal, and we LOVE PIZZA!!!!!! A combination of two yummy things, how could you go wrong. Let’s just say you can’t.

Shrimp Scampi Pizza

I looked for Shrimp Scampi Pizza on Pinterest, and while they all looked good, they were all missing the pasta. You can’t have Shrimp Scampi with pasta; it’s unheard of!

We added it, and I don’t wanna brag or anything, but it was a stroke of genius. Shrimp is the star of the show, but the pasta was hardly second fiddle. I think they were co-stars.
Juicy, succulent shrimp, with white wine, garlic, shallot, butter sauce, tossed with angel hair pasta, super yummy. But put all of that on a crispy pizza crust…..delicious!!!

Instant Pot Lasagna Soup

Instant Pot Lasagna Soup should have a really long title to describe accurately precisely what they are, but alas to be SEO friendly it was not to be. This recipe should be called Instant Pot Lasagna Soup in Crispy Garlic Bread Bowls. A mouthful I know, and in more ways than one.

Instant Pot Lasagna Soup

Keeping with the Instant Pot theme since I know many of you received one as a gift this past holiday season, I wanted to create a recipe that was homey and comforting for the dreary days of winter.

Having never made pasta in the Instant Pot before I did a bit of research as I’m sure there was a trick to it…there was. It takes three times as long for the Instant Pot to come to pressure as it does for the pasta actually to cook. The pasta cooks in only four minutes, but it takes about 15 minutes for the pressure to build.

Instant Pots make one-pot meals super easy. Mine has a sear feature that lets me brown the meat and onions, then without dirtying another pot transition to cooking the rest of the dish.
