100 Gift Card Giveaway - Brought To You By Bertolli Pasta

Family meals are important to Rachel and me. We both grew up in families where everybody sat down at the table to eat dinner together. Now married and with a family of our own, we also make it a point to sit down and have dinner together. Granted, with a 2 1/2 year old and a 1 year old those meal times are often noisy and messy and chaotic. But we all sit down and enjoy a meal together....more

Love Around a Dining Table

Bertolli frozen dinners are the perfect solution for those crazy busy weeknights when you come home from a long day at work and all you want to do is kick off your shoes, and sit back with a glass of wine and a bowl of pasta for dinner. With Bertolli, dinner is made effortless....more

A Meal Fit For a Family

Anybody that has ever moved from one state to another knows that, at least for a little while, everything about your life is turned upside down. In our old home, we had everything kind of "set." I had my kitchen, where I could make my food (no matter how complicated) and enjoy it with my family. Now, we are slowing establishing "our" family routines; that's why I am so thankful for easy-to-make meals that still feel like they are home-cooked for a family....more

Squeezing In Dinner For Two, Bertolli Style

Poor Surferboy is missing more and more evenings with us due to his work schedule. I use some of Surferboy's late evenings as an opportunity to squeeze in a quick romantic dinner for two, Bertolli Style! While dad and the boys relax together, catching up on their day, I am able to whip up one of his favorite savory pasta dishes, pop a bottle of wine and set a pretty table just for the two of us....more

The birth of the "Buy ‘n Lie" and a Bertolli Sweepstakes!

We used to watch A LOT of Food Network, and when I saw Semi Homemade, I always thought of my mom, whose greatest talent {still} is the classic "buy n lie." She'd whip up things that looked and tasted completely homemade and from scratch, but really, at least half of it was "pre-fab" and made it go so much faster. Now, I enjoy calling my mom at 4pm, or even from the store, to ask, "What am I making tonight?"...more

A Delicious & Quick Dinner Idea

When my husband and I first moved in together before we got married, we were both pretty lacking in our cooking skills. As we got older, we both got better at cooking, but now that we have a baby, our dinner routine has become a little more challenging. We like to cook things that are quick or that can be thrown into a pan and oven-baked so we can play with the baby and have our dinner practically make itself....more

Bring the Taste of Italy Home—Without Actually Having to Leave the Country to Do It (Win $100!)

I like to cook, especially when I’ve got someone else around to share it with. There are still times when one or both of us will be on our own for dinner. He sometimes gets sent out of town for work, and when it’s just me and the cats at home… well, let’s just say that as much as I enjoy cooking, sometimes I just don’t feel like making an entire meal just for myself...more

Bertolli, Bringing Food and Family Together at the Dinner Table

Do not judge me! We do not cook every single one of our meals from scratch. One thing I noticed about having a food blog is that people expect to have fancy foods when they come to my house. What they get is a nice homemade meal that anyone could cook. Whether it is a homemade meal or a frozen dinner you will ALWAYS see us eating at the dining room table as a family....more

"Italy Is Served" with Bertolli

The ability to share a meal with Justin on a weeknight is still just as paramount now that I'm busy in the mornings and afternoons as it was when I had more time to experiment in the kitchen. I am glad to know there is an option available to me for those days when I just don't think I can put together a meal from start to finish in the amount of time available to me....more
