Cabbage Rolls

Funny story about cabbage rolls–I actually hate them. Or at least I used to. This was my least favorite meal when I was growing up. I am pretty sure that I have not eaten a cabbage roll since I was 12 years old. However…I received a giant head of cabbage in my Farm Fresh to You...

Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatori

This slow cooker meal is a real kid-pleaser. I scooped the soft chicken and sweet-savory sauce over pasta and my kids devoured it! Don’t let the red pepper flakes scare you (or your kids)–they nicely balance out the sugar in the sauce. Leftovers are even yummier the next day. Thanks to Allrecipes.com for the recipe....

Bruschetta

This simple, easy to make, KP original appetizer is absolutely scrumptious! Use the freshest tomatoes and basil you can find (perhaps from your own garden??). Also, I highly recommend breaking out the expensive, high quality extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar for this dish. Your taste buds will be so glad you did!  (BTW–I ate...

Ham and Parmesan Pasta

When we lived overseas, my toddler son literally asked for pasta carbonara (ham and parmesan pasta) every time we ate at a restaurant. He loved it! So that means he’s eaten this dish in France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Italy…you get the idea. That also means that I’ve tasted pasta carbonara in many, many European...

Minestrone Soup

This is THE BEST minestrone soup recipe I’ve ever tried! My Mom gave it to me years ago (thanks Mom!) It’s a knock-off recipe from a well known Italian restaurant in Michigan, called Lelli’s (thanks Lelli’s!). Use the freshest ingredients you can find–it makes a big difference.  I love the method of pureeing a...

Chicken Marsala

I’m at almost 400 recipes on this site, and I gotta be honest with you…I’m running out of words to describe food. I feel like I’ve exhausted “delicious”, “tasty”, “fantastic”, “yummy” and “sooooo good”.  And I’m not really a “superb” , “delectable” or “pallet-pleasing” kinda gal. So where does that leave us? Are we...
