Bruschetta is a staple of summer meals.  I know it’s fall, and the days are getting colder, the sun is setting earlier, and you are probably thinking of warm, hearty meals…not fresh, summer sides.  BUT…bruschetta can be enjoyed in many ways.  Including being used as a pizza topping. If you have a vegetable garden in your backyard or perhaps like to visit your local Farmer’s Market, you can make bruschetta with some wonderfully fresh produce.  This time of year, you most likely have to purchase the ingredients at your local grocery store.  And that’s OK!  You’ll still have incredibly flavorful and fresh bruschetta to enjoy.  Now for this recipe, the bruschetta will be used as a pizza topping but you will have leftovers.  What to do with the leftovers you ask?  Add as a topping on a grilled chicken breast, serve as a salsa with tortilla chips, or serve with toasted baguette slices. This recipe combines the bruschetta with rotisserie chicken … Continue reading

Instant Pot meals are quickly becoming a favorite of mine on night we are busy and don’t have a lot of time to spend cooking but still want a nice meal.  We probably use our Instant Pot more in the fall and winter than we do in the spring and summer because it’s great for warm and hearty meals.  Recently we made Instant Pot Chicken Bruschetta Pasta.  It was delicious! The chicken was moist and tender, the noodles were al dente (I hate when they become too soft and mushy), and the bruschetta topping added some lovely color and a bit of freshness to the dish.  The flavors pair well together and left us feeling quite satisfied! The recipe can be found here. Start by preparing your ingredients – the ingredients you will be putting in the Instant Pot.  Slice the chicken, mince the garlic, etc.  Then, add the ingredients to the Instant Pot in the … Continue reading

Every so often I like to make a vegan dish for a few reasons.  First, the food is actually delicious (don’t knock it ‘til you try it) and second, I have friends and family members who are vegan (or follow a similar diet), so I like to have a few recipes in my back pocket in case I’m ever entertaining them.  I’d rather be accommodating so they know they can comfortably eat at my house than have them eat before coming over.  And truly, the food is quite good, in addition to being good for you! Bruschetta Pasta is one of my to-go dishes.  It is a vegan dish, but you could easily add parmesan cheese or a little shredded mozzarella if you aren’t following a special diet or don’t have dietary restrictions.  I like this pasta because it’s very light and refreshing.  Think of traditional bruschetta, but instead of … Continue reading

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I’m feeling the love.  Our house is decorated with everything red and pink, I’ve picked out the perfect Valentine for my sweethearts (yes, I’m including the dog 😊), and we have a wonderful menu planned.  A lot of people like to go out to eat on Valentine’s Day and there is nothing wrong with that, but we usually opt to stay in and prepare a nice meal together.  It takes away from the rushed atmosphere you often feel at a restaurant on a busy day and allows you to really spend time together and do something fun together.  We both love to cook so it’s the perfect option for us!    The menu we prepared has a few new items, but everything is easy to make.  We’ll start with a Caprese Salad appetizer and use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to make the … Continue reading
