Skillet Baked Ziti with Sausage and Peppers

Skillet Baked Ziti

 This might be the perfect one-dish meal. It’s warm, comforting, covered in cheese, and quick to prepare. I love traditional baked ziti, but this skillet version appealed to me for its simplicity and ease of clean-up – and it was a success on both counts. Mike...

Broccoli Salad

Zucchini Bacon and Mozzarella Quiche

If you’ve still got zucchini overflowing from your garden, this is the perfect time to make this lightened up quiche recipe.  I made this for a Saturday lunch a few weekends ago and Mike and I both really enjoyed it. I love fresh zucchini,...
