Review of “Tasty’s” Chicken and Dumplings Recipe and How I Made It

As I craved chicken and dumplings, I searched for a website that was meant to serve one person. Unfortunately, none of them pleased me.

A Hack for Unique Ravioli

Back in late 2018, my family and I took a trip to Ireland. The first night there, we ate at an Italian restaurant, where I consumed purple potato filled ravioli in either an oil or cream sauce.

Home Sweet Home Fries – How I Made Them Before the Pandemic Started vs. After

In the United States, serving potatoes with your breakfast is common in many restaurants or public places. At homes, maybe not as much. However, I like to make my own breakfast potatoes, too.
