Simple Marinara & Meatballs

Anyone else C R A V E marinara? When I was pregnant, this was my GO-TO meal! I craved marina so much that when I finally had my baby, I needed a pretty serious break from it. But…now I’m ready for some savory goodness, especially during these cooler days. This is a bit of a…

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Thanksgiving week is upon us! These delicious little friends made their way into my home this weekend and I couldn’t be happier. I have been obsessed with all things pumpkin this year. This is my fourth or fifth pumpkin recipe I’ve made…and we are just talking muffins here! I love love love this recipe but…

Creamy Mushroom Bacon Chicken Skillet

I’m learning to always keep bacon on hand in case of emergencies. I’ve loved bacon all my life (who hasn’t?!) but don’t always want to cook it all at once. As I’m typing this, I realize that I DO want to cook it all at once and eat it immediately. But thank you Lord for…

Autumn Spaghetti

I took a few of my favorite things and made them into dinner tonight:) We’ve been going quite grain free these last few weeks so a meal with some “pasta” was a real treat! I think this will also be great with spaghetti squash for those days when we want to return to going grain…

Farmer’s Burrito

Where does most people get inspiration from? Sometimes I think I’m the most random person on the planet. I was watching something on t.v. this morning where someone was making sweet potatoes with cumin. I cannot honestly tell you what they were making other than the fact that there was sweet potatoes and cumin going…

Soft-Baked Almond Flour Cookies

Summer days are for loosing track of the time and not really knowing what day of the week it is. I was just telling my husband the other day how I feel like I’m in a bubble this summer and it’s quite incredible. Mommy-hood is nothing like I expected it to be and I feel…

Sweet Potato Pad Thai

I love when I randomly find a recipe that I have all the ingredients for in the house:D This recipe was a creation that happened a little more organically rather than planned..and boy am I glad it happened! I love Thai food, well I’ve only ever had pad Thai, but every version I’ve tried has…

Sweet and Sour Chicken

I’ve worked at many different restaurants ever since I was 16 and boy have I learned A LOT! My first dinner I ever made was a penne ala vodka that was inspired from one of the restaurants I worked at. Although our diets have changed from the heavy cream sauces and pasta–I have found an…

Apple Pear and Blueberry Crisp

I think it comes as no surprise my love for baking, but I have really been enjoying it lately. I don’t know if it’s my nesting kicking in while I wait for this baby to arrive—but I loved making this crisp! The recipe is so simple and satisfying to make! Crisp seem to be most…

Loaded Grilled Chicken

  Can you smell the grill???? It’s that time of the year again!!! I’m so excited to have the spring weather and spring food! It doesn’t come to many as a surprise that many tend to eat healthier in the warmer weather. Grilling is such a great way to cook delicious food without excess oil,…

Carrot Cake Cupcakes

Spring time means lots of carrots. Carrots roasted in the oven, fresh raw carrots with hummus, or carrot cakes. I came across this recipe and love how simple these cupcakes are! There is something about cupcakes in the spring time. Am I the only one? There is so much freshness and color in the spring…
