Shredded Chicken Two Ways

Phew it has been a minute since I’ve posted anything on here! It’s been an exciting few months as we adjust to life as parents amid a global pandemic. We’ve had some really exciting moments as Laidy has hit new milestones and brightened up our world in general just by being her adorable little self….

Simple Sides – Brussels Sprouts

Ya’ll. I love roasted Brussels sprouts. I could honestly eat them every single day. They’re SUPER easy to make and keep well in the fridge for a few days. Sprinkle a little bit of sea salt on these suckers and they actually TASTE LIKE FRENCH FRIES. If you’re looking for a super simple side to…

Simple Sides – Oven-Roasted Root Vegetables

We have a Friendsgiving celebration with Corey’s high school friends each year on the day after Thanksgiving. It’s a pretty big deal in our friend group. Everyone gets dressed up and brings an assigned dish (or two) and we all gather at a house to spend the day together. We travel a lot for the…

Homemade Balsamic Dressing

The semester has come to an end.  It’s finally summer.  And that means I can jump back in to cooking (almost) every night. And posting my favorite recipes on this site, of course. I’ll be sharing some of the recipes we lived off of this spring (like my buffalo chickpea wrap — my favorite wrap…

Better-Than-Chipotle Burrito Bowl

Like most millennials, Corey and I love Chipotle.  Corey would live off of it if he could, and I could definitely handle having their chicken burrito bowls for dinner once or twice a week myself. In a desperate attempt to curb our Chipotle addiction, I tried coming up with my own recipe for a burrito…

Simple Sides – Quinoa

If you asked me to pick the top 10 foods that I couldn’t live without, quinoa would be at the top of that list. This super food is SO versatile, SO easy to make, and SO healthy. According to the package I have on hand, quinoa is a complete protein with all 8 essential amino…

Kale & Feta Pasta One-Pot-Wonder

It’s time for another One-Pot-Wonder recipe!  This means that just like my Italian One-Pot-Wonder, you simply throw all the ingredients into one pot and let them work their magic. But before I give you the super simple steps for this recipe, I have to give you a disclaimer. I’m not the biggest kale fan. I know,…

Black Bean Turkey Chili

I stopped eating beef and pork a few years ago.  Not for my health.  Not because I decided to go vegetarian and give up all meat.  But solely because I think cows and pigs are super cute. (Actually, the longer story involves baby cows frolicking in a pasture on the side of the highway conveniently…

Italian One-Pot-Wonder

Alright guys.  The game has been changed. I saw a recipe for an Italian “Wonderpot” meal from one of the bloggers I regularly follow.  She claimed you just throw all these ingredients, pasta and all, into a big pot and just let it cook. That’s it. Simple as that. I, obviously, did not believe it.  But…

Chicken Taco Crock Pot Soup

Like most people, I’m a sucker for good crock pot recipes and fall soups — combine these two things, and I’m sold. That’s exactly what you get with this chicken taco crock pot soup. Just throw all of these ingredients into your crock pot and 4 hours later you have a tasty and healthy soup…
