I spent time in Spain during college and fell in love with paella. This is a fun dish to make for a get-together with friends or a summer BBQ. Que aproveche!

My cousin Pat makes a super tasty single skillet meal that blends his Southern roots with our Southern Italian roots. Make sure to have some good crusty bread on hand to soak up all the skillet juices.
This hearty soup recipe is from a friend’s mother who was French but wanted to meet the dietary desires of her Italian husband. She did not disappoint! It became a family favorite and one of mine now too! – Kathy
In an effort to eat healthier while not sacrificing taste, I stumbled upon this marinated flank steak recipe in Beyond the Pill by Dr. Jolene Brighten. It's absolutely delicious and I can't recommend it enough! —Allee
This is one of my most favorite weeknight meals. It’s light but at the same time filling and never boring with a little spice and sweetness to it.
This recipe just calls for onion, garlic, and ground beef and a handful of cans from in the pantry making it a super simple last minute meal. I always keep these basics on hand, so I can be ready to whip up this favorite in a pinch on a chilly fall day. 🍂
This Broccoli Cheddar and Zucchini Soup from Half-Baked Harvest is a fall staple. It’s comfort in a bowl!
My sister in-law Carol has been making this casserole every Thanksgiving for as long as I can remember. I’ve always been a bit T-Day side dish gal and this is one of my all time favorites any day of the year.
While sheltering in place during the pandemic, I was introduced to this tasty soup by my friend Nathalie who claims it’s “probably one of my favorite soups in the world.” And now it’s one of mine as well, when I have the time.
This meatloaf was inspired by my mother-in-law, Aggi, who I unfortunately never met but undoubtedly would have loved. She was a big fan of pickles in her meatloaf to offer a little zing and a surprise in the middle layer. I’ve taken that a little further adding in cheese, mixing the pickles throughout and giving this meatloaf a perfect game day burger feel.
