Easy Weeknight Lasagna

Hey there! I made this last night for dinner…a super easy pan lasagna that was done in under 40 minutes! Usually when I make lasagna or other baked pasta, I don’t use ricotta, because my husband hates it. He was not going to be home for dinner, so I planned this dish for the rest…

“Fried” Chicken (in butter and wine)

Evening friends! I hope you are all doing well. My mom was awesome and took the girls to cheer practice so I could stay a little longer at work. Most of you already know that I am a teacher, but may not know that the first week of pre-planning is brutal. I was in the…
