Get out of that same ol’ recipe rut and try one of these delicious and easy recipes this week! This week I highly recommend making the Italian Veggie Stuffed Zucchini Boats and the White Fish Sliders with Spicy Jalapeno Slaw!
Happy Sunday TKW Family! So I * think* Spring is finally here in the ‘burgh as the snow has finally stopped and it actually was 80F. Oh sure this all happened within a 24 hour period – going from 30F weather to 80F but hey it’s Pittsburgh; this is the norm. I don’t know about you but this girl is ready for sun and warmth. I’ve definitely become one of those folks I used to say I’d never grow up to be – someone who complains about the cold and that wears a sweater when it’s below 70. But I will NOT be a snow bird and move to Florida. Sorry, you’re an awesome state but you are just way too humid for this curly-haired girl. No, I’m heading out west eventually. Give me Scottsdale, Arizona or maybe Gilbert. I’m ok with the high heat (yes I’ve been there when it’s a 120F and yes it’s hot) but when there’s little humidity I’m in love.
So how was your week? Work was okay. We’re in the 2nd stage of testing out a huge release we have coming up; so far so good. I’ve been working with my developers on the redesign of my website, all new email subscriber system and a whole bunch of new stuff. I have A LOT of updates I have to do on the backend but hopefully soon it’ll be launched. I think you guys are going to love it; I know I already do!
I’ve had many folks ask how come we didn’t hire someone to paint or remodel the house and, while there are days I questions this myself, it boils down to one thing – we want to say WE did it. It’s a sense of accomplishment. Call us gluttons for punishment perhaps but it’s to say we did it. Now will we/I ever go through this again and do the work ourselves? HELL NO! OMG no way, never again as it’s hard work. Call it a bucket-list thing, perhaps. *shrugs*
So have you been following my Instagram feed? Last week I shared a bunch of test kitchen shots.
First we have DONUTS! I’m not a huge donut fan but when it’s a cake donut, I’m all good.
And to the chef go the splendors of her work… these Coffeecake Donuts are all kinds of delicious! I have 6…. who wants one? Coming to the blog soon! . #bareaders #hautecuisines #fwx #beautifulcity #teamcanon #thekitchenwhisperer #donuts #seriouseats #tastingtable #eeeeeats #eatingfortheinsta #pittsburgh #chefsroll #foodblogger #feedfeed #f52grams #foodnetwork
Then there was this – he wanted crepes 2 days in a row. I decided to make a Crepe Quesadilla! OMG it was AMAZING!
Want a seriously delicious breakfast that is also healthy! Swap the wrap and make a crepe!

I so wish my Mom and Dad were here to see the dishes not only that I create but that I eat. I HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATE veggies at a child; now look at me!
That egg yolk tho… . . BLISTERED CHERRY TOMATO PASTA with ROASTED ASPARAGUS & SHALLOTS in a decadent BROWNED BUTTER SAUCE topped with a RUNNY EGG . #bareaders #hautecuisines #heresmyfood #thekitchenwhisperer #eatingfortheinsta #eeeeeats #tastingtable #seriouseats #pittsburgheats #pasta #vegetarian #meatlessmonday #foodvideo #eggs
Are you a fan of sheetpan meals? I know I am BIG TIME! Below I was testing out 2 different recipes!
Testing out 2️⃣ Sheet Pan dinners for both weekly meal prep and easy dinners! . 1️⃣ on the left is my favorite @hatfieldmeats Pork tenderloin topped with my Applewood seasoning. Herbed Potato Wedges and Candied Carrot slices. . 2️⃣ on the right is my Sriracha Honey Butter Chicken, Sausage and Veggies (cauliflower & asparagus). . Both sheet pan meals are enough for a family of 4 or enough for a boat load of meal prep containers! Stay tuned for the results! . #thekitchenwhisperer #bareaders #sheetpandinner #pork #healthyfood #dinner #heresmyfood #pittsburgh #sriracha #foodblogger #testkitchen #onthetable #buzzfeast #weeklymealprep #lunch #412 #feedfeed
