The Academy Awards are this Sunday and, each year, we get together with friends to celebrate the event. Each year we have a different theme and sometimes we all like to get dressed up and have a fancy party. This year, however, we are going to be very casual. My friend, who is hosting the event this year, is going to have a DIY Popcorn Bar, very similar to this one from Sarah's Cucina Bella.
To me, meatloaf is such a perfect meal for a Sunday dinner. It's easy, everyone eats it, and, with a side of mashed potatoes and creamed spinach, it's a classic. I love this version from Back to her Roots and I usual double the recipe so I have leftovers for the week.
I make a lot of chicken for dinner in our house. I realized this when, inquiring about the evening meal one day, my son asked, "What's for chicken tonight?" :-) I was excited to find this recipe as my kids really enjoy honey-mustard sauces and this one, from Recipe Girl, is super easy and delicious. Serve with rice, pasta, or a vegetable for a perfect meal.
My family loves sports and we always get very into the Olympic games. From the grandeur of the opening ceremonies to the victories and heartbreaking defeats of the different events, we always enjoy watching the games--doesn't matter if it's summer or winter. In honor of the beginning of the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, we are going to be enjoying a delicious Creamy Mushroom Stroganoff, this one from Williams-Sonoma, while cheering on Team USA.
We make a big deal about Valentine's Day in our house and I love to start the family's day with a sweet breakfast like these French toast hearts. Sometimes I even make these for my daughter's lunch to add a little extra love.
