Bolognese sauce (dairy free)

We’ve had great weather this summer so far, but occasional rain still comes our way. We welcomed this past rainy day because it meant a day of rest. Does anyone else view rainy days as their own little *surprise* day of rest? Anyway, I cooked up this sauce in the morning with my 3-year-old, who…

Zucchini Cookies

  What is more comforting than a cookie fresh from the oven? A guiltless cookie I might add…?? Nothing. It’s perfection. I’ve joked before about absolutely delicious recipes call for a quick rush to the computer to write them out. Although my life doesn’t always warrant for that kind of time, I did find time to…

Jambalaya

Family friendly jambalaya I might add. My husband and I typically like a little kick-which this recipe can be altered for…but for the whole family, we stuck with no spice. I tried to push myself a bit with this recipe. Some ingredients I have in my pantry all the time, while others not so much….

Instant Pot Chicken Soup

Nothing screams comfort like chicken soup. When I’m sick, cold, sad, or just feel like it’s a soup day…not just any soup will do, chicken soup is the key. I love this chicken soup recipe because it tastes like it’s been cooking all day, simmering away on the stove fill the house full of comfort…

Ranch Chicken Skillet

I’ve never been one of those people who love condiments. With condiments being a hidden trap for massive amounts of sugar, high fructose corn syrup, dyes, fats, or other deceptive food modifications, I will usually spend a decent amount of time reading labels before I take home a dressing from the grocery store. Of course,…

Roasted Sweet Potato & Qunioa Salad with White Balsamic Dressing

Hello dear friends! I have so many great recipes I’ve been saving and photographing to add to MWT. I could easily type paragraph after paragraph explaining why my blog has taken a backseat lately, but I find that all that really matters is that I’m here now and back with some great recipes. I think…

Lemon Turkey Meatballs

When I think summer cooking, I think lemon and dill. I love dill. Dill is a fairly new herb to make its way into my life. I’ve cooked with dried dill here and there, but as you know, nothing compares to fresh herbs. Fresh is always best. Ground turkey is a great swap for ground…

Butternut Squash Risotto

Are you ready for some fall recipes? I honestly make this risotto all year long but there is something special about making it during the cooler days. Risotto has a few more steps than just a basic rice, but it’s oh so worth it. The layers of flavor are so worth the additional time needed….

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….
