I’m not a fan of raw kale in salads, but I love it in soup recipes. This dish takes advantage of canned beans, which cuts down the cooking time dramatically. You can have this […]

Tropical Smoothie

Tropical Smoothie

My go-to smoothie has always been strawberry and banana, but this Tropical Smoothie has become a new favorite. I’m not even a super huge fan of pineapple, so that’s saying something. It just tastes so amazing, especially after a tough workout. […]

Zesty Jalapeño Yogurt-Hummus Dip

Zesty Jalapeno Yogurt Hummus

One of my favorite healthy snacks is homemade hummus with veggies. It’s so easy to whip up in the food processor and you can make so many variations of it. It makes a great snack, but you can also use it as a spread on a sandwich if you want. By making your own hummus, you also get to control the quality of ingredients, which is always a good thing!

Smoky Roasted Broccoli with Scallions

Smokey Roasted Broccoli with Scallions

Finding ways to add tasty flavor to veggies is something I love to do. I mean, plain steamed broccoli with a little bit of butter and sea salt is fine, but it can get old sometimes. That’s where spices can really save the day. A little seasoning can take boring old broccoli and turn it into something super delicious! […]

Slow Cooker Italian Stuffed Pepper Soup

Slow Cooker Italian Stuffed Pepper Soup

I’ll be honest, I have made stuffed bell peppers in the past and didn’t really enjoy eating them. My husband loves them, but I just don’t enjoy eating the whole bell pepper like that. Is that weird? Plus, it was way more time consuming than this Slow Cooker Italian Stuffed Pepper Soup is. […]

Smoked Sausage Cabbage and Sprouted Lentil Soup

Smoked Sausage Cabbage and Sprouted Lentil Soup

It was a cold and dreary day here yesterday. The kind of day that just begs for a bowl of hot soup and some homemade Skillet Cornbread. Apparently, my husband was thinking the same thing because that’s what he asked to have for lunch. […]

Quinoa Salmon Cakes with Creamy Dijon Sauce

Quinoa Salmon Cakes

This recipe came about because I didn’t have my usual gluten-free crackers I needed to make my usual salmon patties one night. I did have some quinoa in my pantry though, so I decided to see how well that would work. Turns out, it worked great and we really enjoyed them. […]

One-Pan Mexican Chicken Quinoa

One-Pan Mexican Chicken Quinoa

Hurrah for easy one-pan meals! I made this for the first time last week when I really didn’t feel like cooking. I kind of just threw everything into the skillet and hoped for the best. No measuring spoons for the spices either. I just kind of eyeballed the amounts for that. Fortunately, it turned out so well, I decided it should go on the blog. […]

Taco Casserole

Taco Casserole

Well, here it is! As I promised in my Homemade Enchilada Sauce post, I have a recipe for you to use it in. And it’s a good one! I mean it’s kind of hard not to be tasty when beef, cheese and Mexican flavors are involved, right? […]

Super Bowl Food Ideas

Super Bowl Food

Super Bowl 2017 is upon us, and I’ve got a few game day recipes for ya! Not gonna lie, I had high hopes that our beloved Cowboys would be playing this weekend. Yeah, that stings just a little. I have a little rule. If the Cowboy’s aren’t playing, I’m not watching the Super Bowl. So, it’s been a while since I’ve seen one. Ha! […]
