Quick and Healthyish One Pan Parmesan Chicken

Let’s be honest, chicken breasts can get a little, well, boring, but it doesn’t have to be that way! We eat plenty of chicken breast around here. It’s a fabulous, healthy, and economic lean protein, so I am always testing new and different ways to spice things up. This dish has become a fan favorite…

Spring Chicken Pot Pie

When I start to get desperate for meal ideas and we are running low on groceries, I often turn to pantry staples to help me break my rut. Although there are a few celiac-safe places in town we can grab takeout, I kind of like forcing myself to be creative in the kitchen. For some…

How to Build the Perfect Simple Charcuterie Board

But first, a charcuterie board story Traditionally, a charcuterie board is a Willis family Christmas Eve Tradition. In fact, it’s such a firm tradition that I refused to stop dipping little clementine orange slices in chocolate for our 2013 board as I was in active labor for our second child.
