Polenta, Sausage and Spinach Casserole

Get over here. We have a casserole to talk about. I’m only calling it casserole because I’m originally from Arkansas. But you can call it whatever you so desire! Bake? I like it. It’s strong. Or even lasagna. That was my original plan. But there’s no ricotta in it, so I swapped out lasagna for […]

Creamy Bow Tie Pasta with Kale and Sausage

I almost just want you to skip down to the recipe. But don’t! It’s just THAT GOOD. Aaron came up with this recipe, and my head straight up popped off and rolled down the street at the first bite. It’s got a kick. It’s got some cream. It’s got tang. It’s got music. It’s got […]

Soup with Sausage Meatballs, White Beans and Kale

I don’t think I’d call this a wedding soup. More like an elopement soup? Because the willy nilly factor is maj nil. There are no flowers to be ordered, no cake to taste test, no dress to lose weight for, nothing. It’s just hop in the car, sign a paper, I do or whatever, and […]

Creamy Roasted Garlic Shells with Italian Sausage, Peppers and Broccoli

Creamy shells never did hurt nobody, right? Hopefully caterpillars don’t either, becauuuuuse I’m pretty sure I ate about 217 of them. But let me back up a little bit. Monday afternoon we made it home from Arkansas, and I felt like absolute hammered earwax. Wiped out past the point of no return, so I let […]

Gnocchi with Sausage and Kale

It’s snow day #2 around herrr! Which doesn’t really change much for me and my normal routine, other than the addition of nauseated gripes from my husband’s “work station” at the kitchen table as he witnesses me Huluing missed episodes of The Carrie Diaries and The Mindy Project. It’s like, look chachi, no one asked […]

Sausage, Kale and Black-Eyed Peas Soup

Weeeeell would ya look at that. The world didn’t blow up! Oh wait that was 13 years ago. And then two weeks ago. And okay, pretty much every morning if we really want to babysit my neurosis. Alright let’s just get down to this. Are you big on tradition? And the ancient folklore of the […]

Thin Crust Pizza with Caramelized Onions, Sausage and Roasted Red Peppers

Story time! Wait, did you just GROAN? I spent most of my formative years in Hobbs, New Mexico. Way out in the desert with tumbleweeds and dust and sleeveless muscle shirts. So from the ages of 9 to 19, if my family had any major shopping to do, like back-to-school style, we drove two hours […]

Sausage Cheese Dip

I think we need a moment of silence, yes? Yes. I’m such a stupid lover of cheese dip, it’s stupid. Stupid stupid stupid. I made this last Saturday for the Arkansas/Alabama game (embaaaaaaarrassing) and – oh, did I host a party, you ask? Oh no. The cheese dip was for me. All two pounds of […]

White Bean, Kale and Italian Sausage Soup

It’s all about the rind, n’est pas? I have no idea why I threw a little Francais into that sentence. This isn’t even a French soup. Let me start over. It’s all about the rind, I MEAN RIGHT, YOU GUYS? Yeah, that was just straight up obnoxious boulevard. Question: Do you freeze your cheese rinds? […]

Italian Sausage and Pepperoni Stromboli

I’m not even a little bit sorry. You know sometimes when you’re just doing your thing, like sweeping the living room floor and singing “Reflections” by the Supremes into the tip of the broom, and a random taste appears in your mouth out of nowhere, and you’re like WHAT IS THAT. WHAT. IS. THAT. And […]
