Roasted Green Chile Enchiladas

In the midst of a pandemic there are very few things that I look forward to. One of those is a drink at the end of the day (let’s not judge, these are weird times), and Taco Tuesday. There’s nothing like a themed dinner to allow me to pretend like things are normal… The nights…

Honey Thyme Margaritas

Tell me I’m not the only one whose eased the pain of the pandemic with booze… Since it’s the beginning of Fall all I want are refreshing cocktails, and at this point I’ve made the Spicy Paloma Pitcher so many times that I finally decided to try something else. As much as I love simple…

Spicy Paloma Pitcher

I can’t believe I lived most of my life assuming that tequila was the devil and could only be consumed as an end-of-the-night shot that resulted in a disgusted face and a hangover that I didn’t think I’d ever survive. Paloma’s were probably the first tequila-based cocktail I ever enjoyed, and I ordered it by…

Basic Ham + Cheese Puff Pastries

Ugh, even typing this title is making me drool. I think I’ve discovered that I’m a HUGE breakfast person. All of my favorite go-to’s are a morning meal, and I love that I can take my time on Saturday mornings to truly make some good eatin’. For our 2 year anniversary (and because we’re on…

Basic Chicken & Wild Rice Soup

I don’t think I’ve sat down and actually wrote about a new recipe in months. As I was putting together this meal, I completely forgot how fun it is to really break it all down…and even more fun to take pictures of it while my impatient fiance is tapping his foot because a man’s gotta…

Basic (and healthy) Tomato Basil Soup

FALL IS IN THE FREAKING AIR. Literally unpacking all the pumpkins, my fall scented candles, and whipping out my crockpot for all the fall goodies. As much as I’m anticipating all that comes with the best season of all, it comes with busy schedules, and no one has time to run out and grocery shop,…

Egg Roll Bowl

You know those nights where the work day starts to wind down and it’s closing in on 5 o’clock, and the idea of going to the grocery store sounds downright awful? And forget about making it a healthy meal…These are the nights where I procrastinate for 2 hours, and by 8 pm I’m starving, cranky…

Crockpot BBQ Chicken

Oh baby. BBQ Crockpot Chicken. The most painless, delicious, and downright delicious creation. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a maj Pulled Pork girl if I’m doing BBQ, and often times chicken gets too dry for me to want to try. With the intention of being healthier, I’ve been determined to do a Crockpot BBQ Chicken…

DIY Basic BBQ Sauce

While I’m freezing my buns off over here in the dead of winter I’ve, oddly enough, been craving some of my favorite summer foods. I’ve made pineapple smoothies, tacos and even downed a bottle of rose to pretend like it’s not blustery and bleak outside. One of my favorite guilty pleasures of summer is BBQ…whether…

Veggie Bolognese

I’ve recently gotten on the kick of “Meatless Monday’s”, because I honestly didn’t realize how much red meat I was eating until I started looking back at all the meals I’d had the previous week. Being on a health kick has been rough, but the pay offs have been well worth it–I’ve been sleeping better…
