Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti {Tablespoon Tuesdays}

I’m going to pretend that I’ve always called Tuesdays “Tablespoon Tuesdays”. I’m also going to pretend that it was 100% my idea and not my husband’s when he just so effortlessly said last week, “You post your Tablespoon stuff on Tuesday, right? Why don’t you call it ‘Tablespoon Tuesdays’?” Because that would make sense, wouldn’t […]

Chicken Pot Pie Calzones

How do you call your lover boy? You stuff a chicken pot pie in his calzone. That’s freaking how. I’m having a mild aneurism over this whole thing actually. And actually, I do realize that I overuse the word actually. I overuse a lot of words on this blawg that probably make you want to […]

‘Round here at the Halloweidner headquarters, we’ve definitely been on a scary movie rampage marathon extravaganza, and my soul is seriously feelin’ the remnants. Why do I do this? I’m already jumpier than a grasshopper. I’m already a paranoid lunatic on the loose. But I can’t stop. It’s like, my favorite thing ever! I make […]

Chicken and Black Rice-Stuffed Acorn Squash

We have an issue. It all started with an acorn squash. Okay two acorn squashes. And my overactive sweat glands. I’d decided that since it was October the 1st, I’d be a good American citizen girl of the Americas and stuff some squash. With yumminess like browned chicken, black rice, veggeroos and herbaroos. Which is […]

Chili Bread Bowls

Time for çheelee! That’s the way I say çhili. Cheelee. And you have to raise your eyebrows real high like those çreepy çartoony çharaçters in Soundgarden’s old video Blaçk Hole Sun. And the L sound has to be really enunçiated, like to the point where there’s almost spit in the çorners of your mouth. And […]

Roasted Chicken with Fig Butter

Uhhhhh yeah. That would be fig butter all over this thing. But before we begin, is it bad form to want to offer a hurricane a drink? Isaac is going to be here shortly and I’m so excited I’m putting on dang mascara. Fig butter. Doesn’t it sound so Downton Abbey or something? “Me Lady, […]
