Let's make beautiful food together!
I pulled out the big guns for October in the Pretty Hungry 2015 Recipe Calendar for obvious reasons. (Because October is the best month there is. Duh.) This is the recipe I was most excited about in the whole calendar… which is saying something since this granola is pretty to-die-for. But this one was my baby. […]
June was a month of cherries at our house. And fun fact: Cherries have been my favorite fruit since childhood. My mom used to buy me my own bag to eat all by myself every summer on our way to Camp Ne-o-Tez. (There was a farm stand on our way… Chico’s in DeSoto, MO. Anybody […]
I’ve been getting a funny question rather frequently lately… What does a typical day of meals/snacks look like for me? I suppose it isn’t that funny since I’ve made no secret about the fact that I’ve transitioned to eating mainly whole, plant foods, and have also cut out pretty much all added sugar. Not exactly […]
I’ve wanted to share this recipe with you for ages! It’s one of my favorites… a go-to in our household. There’s just the small matter of these two babies I’ve been blessed with. Most nights, they prohibit the making of any sort of proper dinner, and on the rare miraculous occasions when a meal does […]
In many Thanksgivings past, I’ve counted down the days til the big feast… fantasizing about all the amazing ways I planned to “cheat” on whatever diet I was on at the time. Pie, stuffing, countless buttered rolls, and an obligatory bite of turkey. (Turkey’s never been my fave. Anyone else grossed out by the smell??) Well, […]
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Hippocrates 460 B.C As you all know, I’ve recently had a baby! She’s two weeks old, in fact. And throughout the past two weeks, we’ve been very blessed to receive some wonderful food gifts from friends and family to help relieve the burden of food […]
~ Well, we are nearing the end of August. And believe me, NO ONE is happier to be bidding summer farewell than this girl! For one thing: I’m 8 months pregnant. For another: I live in Arkansas, where it has been in the upper 90s with 200% humidity since May. I’m itching to see those leaves […]
~ ~ Intrigued by the title of this post? Well, here’s the deal… I couldn’t bring myself to title this pesto as it should be titled, because doing so would require me to break TWO of my cardinal rules of recipe naming. Those rules are: #1- Do not include the word “protein” in a recipe […]
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 […]
~ 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 […]
I thought you might like to see a few pictures of the lovely Easter Brunch we enjoyed here over the weekend. It was an intimate affair (just six of us) and the toddler was in bed for nap time… so I was able to go “all out” with a delectable menu and pretty place settings. […]
~ 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) […]
~ First, let me say that you can make these super-easy Sausage Cups any darn time of the year you want, Super Bowl or no Super Bowl. (In fact, I kid you not when I say that my husband and I insisted they be served at our wedding.) Here’s your proof… that is a Sausage […]
~ Huh?? Yep, you read that right. I felt that this bruschetta recipe needed an extra-special and descriptive title, since the recipe was given to me on an extra-special occasion! The story goes… my sweet mother-in-law, Suzanne, and I were out for our Annual Christmas Shopping Extravaganza last month. We were flitting from store to […]
