Chicken Cacciatore

WARNING: EASY SLOW COOKER, FULL FLAVOR (NOT MUSHY) RECIPE BELOW!! As a child, I grew up loving my grandfather’s chicken caccciatore. I have fond memories of spending Sunday afternoons with family enjoying this slow cooked, hearty meal. Since my grandfather’s passing, I’ve longed to find a recipe as delicious as his. Since I didn’t have…

Brownie Bites with Nut Drizzle

I had the hardest time thinking of a name for these little bits of heaven. I cut them into smaller sizes than a typical brownie because sometimes you just need something small to satisfy that sweet tooth! I wanted a brownie unlike the other recipes that I’ve tried before, one with a peanut drizzle. This…

Feeding to nourish: A baby food story

  Like most of my posts, I write because I need to have a recipe-diary for all those times I “can’t remember how I made something”. I’ve done a great deal of research before I began the journey of introducing solids to my solely breastfed baby. From the beginning, I decided I was going to…

Sesame and Maple Glazed Salmon

One of my favorite ingredients of this year is hands down sesame oil. I feel as if I’ve waste so many stir fry meals in my past not knowing what I was missing. The flavor this little oil brings to the table is unbelievable. I’m excited for anyone out there reading this who doesn’t own…

A few of my favorite things!

I absolutely love reading favorites! I’ve watched many videos and read many blog posts to learn about people’s favorites. How fun?! In the spirit of the holidays, I thought I’d write about my favorite kitchen equipment of the year. I’ve also linked them all below for your viewing pleasure! Hope you had a great Christmas!…

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…

Sea Salt Brownies

Well hello August! You’ve come and nearly gone…how dare you! We could all use a little more chocolate in our life don’t you think? Regardless of the time of year! So whether your heading back to school, squeezing in one last summer getaway or just needing a break from all those fruity desserts…check out the…

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…
