One Pot Tex-Mex Pasta

We developed this One Pot Tex-Mex Pasta recipe as part of our ongoing Ambassadorship with Peapod.  All opinions are 100% mine. Our nine-year-old started 4th grade this week – I can’t believe how quickly the summer flew by! It will still take a few weeks for our daughter’s after school activities to ramp up, but […]

Fresh Vegetable Pasta Salad

Today is our first ‘official’ day of summer break from the school year, and I’m really looking forward to a more relaxed schedule for the next few months. OK – this really doesn’t have anything to do with our Fresh Vegetable Pasta Salad recipe that we’re sharing today – but for some reason, this year, […]

Sometimes the simplest of recipes are the best – and these incredible Steak Bites are the perfect example of that!

Pork Tenderloin Tips with Apricot Sauce

Here on A Family Feast, my husband Jack often shares some ‘behind-the-scenes’ glimpses into what it was like to work in a professional food service management role.  In a large food service operation – where serving numerous guests efficiently is an absolute must – there are many dishes that get prepared ahead of time and […]

Our Confetti Chicken Tacos are a quick-to-prepare, super delicious weeknight dinner that the whole family will love – especially on those evenings when everyone is hungry and time is tight!

Parmesan Chicken Cutlets

We eat chicken in our house fairly often so – long before we started blogging here on A Family Feast – we’ve always been on the lookout for different chicken recipes to try!  One of our all-time favorites is Ina Garten’s recipe for Parmesan Chicken cutlets which originally appeared in her Barefoot Contessa Family Style […]

Fettuccine in Cream, Tomato & Basil Sauce

This Fettuccine in Cream, Tomato & Basil Sauce is a delicious and easy recipe that I’ve had in my recipe box for years! It’s similar to a Fettuccine Alfredo in some ways – but with a lighter, fresher flavor thanks to diced fresh tomatoes, fresh basil and parsley added to the delicious cream sauce! What […]

Quick Skillet Chicken with Grapes

We’re sharing this Quick Skillet Chicken with Grapes recipe made from Walmart Produce as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars.

Grilled Yellow Potatoes with Mustard Sauce

Now that we’re outside at dinnertime and grilling as much as possible – we’ve changed up our menu a bit and we try to prepare side dishes that can also be cooked on the grill!  (No sense in heating up the kitchen if at all possible!) Lots of vegetables are well-suited for grilling (see here, […]

American Chop Suey

As a life-long resident of New England, American Chop Suey is a dish that brings back memories of school cafeteria lunches from my childhood!  Most people immediately recognize this dish of elbow-shaped pasta, seasoned beef, green peppers, onions, and tomato sauce – and although we call this meal American Chop Suey here in New England, […]

Mediterranean Flatbread

Several weeks ago, we featured a five-day series of delicious recipes all using five ingredients or less.  This Mediterranean Flatbread was originally developed as part of that series – but we ended up with six recipes, including another flatbread recipe, so we held this recipe back – until today! My husband Jack, in particular, found […]

Chicken Breasts with Mushroom and Onion Dijon Sauce

In our kitchen, a good-quality Dijon mustard is one of those must-have, staple ingredients that we always have on hand! We add it to so many recipes – vinaigrettes and dressings, and it’s a terrific addition to my husband Jack’s famous potato salad! But we also love Dijon mustard when it’s been turned into a […]

Lemon Pasta

Many years ago, during my bachelorette days when I was cooking only for myself, this easy Lemon Pasta was one of my go-to recipes!  Although I loved to cook back then – more specifically, I loved to cook for other people.  So during the week, my usual single-gal routine was to come home from work, […]

Sausage Bread

After all of the cooking and baking we did for the holidays, the last thing on our mind is spending more time in the kitchen cooking an elaborate meal!  Even as food bloggers – we need a bit of a break, and instead of cooking so much, we’re taking time this week to relax a […]

Deconstructed Stuffed Cabbage

Over the last month or so, as Jack and I started to plan out our holiday recipes to share here on A Family Feast, we spent a lot of time talking about old family recipes! On Jack’s side of the family – Italian fare was the standard, so recipes like beef braciole and lasagna were […]
