Recipe Roundup: 2/10

Since so many of my fabulous readers seem to love when I post new recipes for them to try, I decided to do a weekly Recipe Roundup where I feature a handful of recipes that I really love from either my own kitchen or around the interwebs. If you have a recipe you’d like to submit for the Recipe Roundup, please feel free to email me at


Breakfast: 15 Minute Banana Nutella Muffins

Throughout this pregnancy, I’ve had a major sweet tooth (I know…could mean I’m cookin a little girl!) and when I saw these banana Nutella muffins over on Mommy for One I was instantly in love. They are crazy easy to make (even the busiest of moms have 15 minutes for Nutella) and they look incredibly delicious. I will definitely be making them sometime this week to share with my boys (maybe…if they’re especially good. The boys, not the muffins.)

Lunch: Tuscan Sausage Soup

I posted about this AMAZING soup on my Instagram account a few weeks back when I first tried it, but I wanted to share with everyone because it is really that good. Prep-wise, it’s very easy to make (not a whole lot of chopping and dicing) and very little in the way of spices since the sausage gives it so much incredible flavor. I made this last weekend on a ski trip with my husband’s whole family and they all raved about it…not a bowl was left by the end of the weekend (and I doubled this recipe!) Even if you’re not a huge fan of sausage (which I am really not either) give it a try. I bet you’ll love it. Check out Feast on the Cheap for more amazing and cost-effective recipes.

Dinner: Easy Italian Chicken Bake

My mom’s family is off-the-boat Italian, so I grew up eating lots of delicious Italian cuisine. Problem is, a lot of the recipes are time-consuming, with tons of ingredients, which isn’t very conducive to cooking for a family when time and money are tight. Enter this super easy, 4-ingredient Italian dinner from The Pinning Mama. It’s actually on our menu for tonight (I’m making homemade pesto because I love the way the fresh basil tastes, but the jarred stuff is still really delicious and much easier) and I’m really excited to add a new Italian dish to our catalogue of recipes.

Dessert: Cherry Chip Sugar Cookies

In honor of Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d share something Valentine’s-themed that could be made for your child’s classroom or at home for your family. When I saw these Cherry Chip Sugar Cookies I thought they were such a fun and out-of-the-box take on the traditional sugar cookie (and, to be honest, I didn’t even know cherry chips existed!) They look chewy and delicious and most of the ingredients are things you probably have in your cupboard right now. The recipe makes a ton of cookies, so they’d be perfect for sharing (or hoarding for yourself…no judgments here.) Click here for the printable recipe. Be sure to check out Occasionally Crafty for a lot more pin-worthy crafts and recipes.


*Note: I was not paid, perked or plugged for sharing any of these recipes with you. These are simply recipes that I’ve tried myself or plan to try that I think OMTA readers would enjoy.

    Thanks so much for sharing these. I tried the Italian Chicken Bake tonight and it was a HUGE hit! I will definitely add this recipe to my list of regulars. I added sun-dried tomatoes and fresh basil on top because I already had them on hand and it blended really well with the flavors.
