This week on Fee SIMPLE Fridays: an easy recipe that you can whip up to celebrate the Fourth of July and impress your holiday guests with minimal effort!

Carbonara

Pasta Carbonara by OinK

So this recipe is basically my go-to once a week type pasta.  It is seriously the easiest thing to make in the world, and usually I have all the ingredients on hand.  This recipe hits all my sweet spots: easy, fast, cheap, and darn-delicious!  I could honestly eat it every single day and be happy.   Continue reading

Whole Wheat Penne with Roasted Asparagus, Sautéed Chicken, Spinach and Goat Cheese Cream Sauce

OinK's Whole Wheat Penne with Roasted Asparagus, Sautéed Chicken, Spinach and Goat Cheese Cream Sauce

Tonight’s dinner was finally worth posting… I’ve had a lot of things going on in my life (mostly good!) and have basically neglected the crap out of this blog (per usual since I started working), so I’m not going to make excuses, I’m just going to cut to the chase and give you the recipe :)  This came about because I had some stuff in my fridge that I had purchased with the intent of making other things and then had extra and/or never made those things (oops).  Here’s what I had, and what you would need, to replicate this insanely easy dish: Continue reading

Andouille Chicken Sausage with Leeks and Polenta

Andouille Chicken Sausage with Leeks and Polenta

So remember how I bought a whole bunch of chicken sausage because I had a billion coupons? Well don’t worry I’m putting them to work! I also just got an awesome deal on a panini press because I had a gift card to Williams-Sonoma (aka my favorite store ever). So I went with the Cuisinart one because the reviews were fantastic and it was cheaper than the Breville (which I had used during my stint at WS and loved!)

So this recipe came about because I had a ton of chicken sausage left and thought I’d try something in the comfort food realm. Continue reading

Chicken Sausage and Peppers

OinK Chicken Sausage and Peppers

Oh em gee, y’all.  Cover your ears real quick because I’m about to toot my own horn (I know I’m ridiculously cheesy and lame but I can’t help myself).  I made a homerun tonight.  Matt loved it.  I mean LOVED.  Muggsy went totally crazy over not being able to have it (sorry muggs it has onions).  And I had to keep myself from going back for more, but packed some up to bring to work for lunch tomorrow.  It also had the added benefit of taking 30 minutes (and like 5 minutes hands-on time, which is usually all I take into consideration when I think about how long something is going to take).  Like it will literally take me longer to write this post than to make this meal.  It ALSO cost me like $3 per serving (maybe) thanks to my couponing (I’ll get into that later) Continue reading

Buffalo Chicken Pizza

Buffalo Chicken Pizza by OinK

I know I have been very absent for a very long time, but I’m doing my best and hopefully you are still with me :)  I have been fairly busy at work and in my free time I’ve been getting involved in a new hobby… couponing! To some of you this is probably not a shock because I instagram and tweet about my couponing ventures but it’s definitely something that I’m really enjoying.  I so far have been doing a good job of resisting clipping coupons for items I don’t need and I have not bought anything we don’t already use.  So no hoarding for me!   Continue reading
