Let's make beautiful food together!
~ Honestly, WHAT is more perfect for 4th of July festivities than BBQ? It’s fun, it’s messy, it’s casual… it’s the essence of summer. And BBQ Pizza?!? Well, in my humble opinion, the only way to improve upon juicy barbecued goodness is to add mounds of melty cheese and lots carb-y, perfect bread. That sounds […]
This morning, I felt certain that you needed this recipe in your life before another day could pass. Because who doesn’t drool at the sound of Sweet & Savory Balsamic Glazed Salmon, I ask you? ~ ~ The true beauty of this recipe is how easy it is to throw together, yet how impressive it […]
~ Hi all! I’m starting to worry that my fellow junk-food-lovers out there are going to think I’m forever lost to the Dark Side. 😉 I know I’ve been posting a heckuvah lot of health-food on here lately! And the reason for that is quite simple… these are the foods I’ve been cooking for our […]
~ I recently found myself with an abundance of fresh broccoli on hand (as in: at least twelve crowns of fresh broccoli.) Now normally I never buy broccoli fresh, because it suits our budget much better to buy it frozen and I don’t have to worry about it going bad that way. But this week […]
You might recall my excitement over the Mother’s Day dinner I got to prepare for my mother-in-law last weekend. She is such an amazing woman! Brilliantly smart, patient and sweet, SO wise, and did I mention she adores my baby? I am so thankful to have her in my life! (And since she’s the only […]
Note: This post is sponsored by Fisher® Nuts. As many of you know, I have recently become fascinated with the health benefits of plant-based eating, and have enjoyed experimenting with using less meat and dairy in my cooking. The results have surprised even me! Vegan eating can be utterly delicious! I am excited that Fisher® Nuts […]
~ OH I had some fun this weekend! If you’re a regular reader, then you know about our strict grocery budget. And if you know about our strict grocery budget, then you also know that, while I think all cooking is “fun”, my opportunities to have some real fun in the kitchen and indulge my more […]
This recipe really hit a home run in our household! It’s cheesy and totally taco-y… everything you’ve come to love and expect from a Mexican meal, minus one thing – the meat! (I should mention to any newcomers that we are by no means anti-meat in my family. We love meat! We just don’t eat it […]
A few years ago, back when my husband and I were carefree D.I.N.K.s (“double income, no kids”)… we fell into the habit of ordering Domino’s pizza about 2-3 times per week. Please don’t judge me… you would understand if you had tasted the pizza I get there! It is UH-mazing! Crispy thin crust, double mushrooms, […]
Once upon a time, I had four surgeries in one year. (One huge one in May, an emergency one in July, a scheduled one in October, and a revision in December.) It was totally awesome… NOT! But the experience did come with one totally awesome by-product: The myriad of delicious meals that people brought to our […]
Do you keep a well-stocked pantry? ~ ~ To be real with you for a minute, I must admit that during my first 3 years of marriage (pre-baby, when I was working outside the home) I did a very poor job of keeping our home stocked with healthy foods. I swung by Kroger most evenings […]
~ I’ve made it pretty plain in recent weeks that I am a huge fan of quinoa. It is an affordable, protein-packed grain (well, technically it’s a seed) that can be added to all sorts of meals for added nutrition and texture! It is perfect for people on gluten-free or meatless diets, OR just […]
If you’re anything like me, you have numerous mile-long lists of things you want, things you love, and things you want to try! Most of my lists happen to be food-related, because apparently I’m a bit of a food nut. (No pun intended.) So today, in honor of The Holiday of LOVE (V-Day, of course) […]
This. Recipe. Is. Everything. Everything I want in a meal… everything I want for my budget…and the answer to my ever-present craving for Mexican food. Everything! ~ ~ And I invented this recipe myself, which means I tailored each component to comply with my strictest, highest standards for deliciousness. In my humble opinion, it is […]
~ Most of you know that I run a very tight ship around here when it comes to our weekly grocery budget. It is rare that I make room on my list for high-dollar grocery items like ground beef, macadamia nuts, and canned cream of coconut (the likes of which you’ve seen a lot of […]
