Marinara Sauce

There are so many things I look forward to with a new season. I’ve always found that I am more inspired when I go through a change. I find that with a new season, new ingredients in season, new schedule changes, temperature change… it’s no wonder I’m ready for new new new. So with all…

Beef Barbacoa

Without sounding like a broken record, slow cooker/crock pot recipes that are actually good and worth sharing are hard to come by. I am extremely picky about the recipes that I share in general, so when I found a super easy crock pot recipe, that literally hit the table a few hours ago, you better…

Buffalo Chicken Tenders

Hello again!! If any of you know anything about blogging…it can be tiresome and uninspiring at times. Blogging can be a very lonely journey as we through something out into the universe and just hope it gets attention, helps people, or just allows us to have the simple pleasure of getting something off our chest….

Smoked Paprika Style Chicken Sheet Pan

The more I try to balance being a good working mom, the more I value every second with my son when I get home from work. With that said, I still make it a priority to get a delicious, healthy meal on the table most nights. This meal took all of 15 minutes to prep…

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…

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…

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…

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…
