Oven-Roasted Asparagus

Rating: 4.79 stars

Salty and savory, the roasting method kills the natural bitterness of asparagus. Try it next to grilled fish or lamb.

Alfredo Sauce

Rating: 4.56 stars

Rich and creamy! I have found that Parmesan cheese doesn't melt well, and often substitute Gruyere cheese.

Chicken Parmesan

My version of chicken parmesan is a little different than what they do in the restaurants, with less sauce and a crispier crust.

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Rating: 4.8 stars
3409
Authentic Italian-style risotto cooked the slow and painful way, but oh so worth it. Complements grilled meats and chicken dishes very well. Check the rice by biting into it. It should be slightly al dente (or resist slightly to the tooth but not be hard in the center).

Garlic Shrimp Pasta Bake

Want a super satisfying, quick and easy dinner? Then this buttery garlic shrimp pasta bake is definitely a family pleasing meal idea that you should try!

How to Make Perfect Polenta

Rating: 4.87 stars
221
Polenta is nothing more than coarsely ground cornmeal. The classic ratio is 1 part polenta to 4 parts water, but I like to measure the polenta just a little scant of a full cup. I often use chicken broth instead of water. It's a perfect base for any kind of saucy meat or mushroom ragout.

Cream Corn Like No Other

This is NOTHING like canned creamed corn! My husband is not a fan of corn or creamed dishes, but he thinks this is great. Easy and quick to prepare and is an especially delicious side dish for chicken or pork. Everyone always asks for the recipe.

A wonderful baked chicken recipe that's quick and easy! Using just a few handy ingredients, create a delicious main dish, that also makes great leftovers - if there are any! Serve with a salad and pasta or rice for a quick, scrumptious dinner.

This is a no fry variation of this popular dish, and is just as delicious!

The Best Parmesan Chicken Bake

Rating: 4.38 stars

This chicken Parmesan is done casserole style (so, no breading or frying!), but still offers up that irresistible combination of tender chicken, crunchy/cheesy coating, and flavorful sauce.

Air Fryer Meatballs

Rating: 4.9 stars
20
After cooking meatballs in the air fryer, I will never bake them in the oven again. The insides stay nice and tender while the outsides get a slight crisp on them. The best part is that you can make them ahead of time and freeze for later use. I have included those directions in the notes. Dip meatballs in marinara, if desired.

I made these one night for a barbecue and all of the guys went nuts for it!
