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…

Gnocchi

Out of ALL the date night meals, this has become my  favorite, and one that my boyfriend requests on a weekly basis. It’s simple, inexpensive, and has never failed to be the ideal date night dish (full disclosure: I would 100% eat the entire thing on my own, so no shame if you’re making this…

Mom’s Jambalaya

Bacon Wrapped Mini Meatloaf

Ok, let me level with you: December was rough. I ate my way through the entire month, eating Christmas cookies like it was my job, and downing bottles of good red wine to wash down all the sugar. But…I loved EVERY MINUTE OF IT. How can you not? It’s the one month where everyone is…

DIY Basic Taco Seasoning

I don’t care what time of year it is, Mexican food ALWAYS sounds good. I know the default when you’re whippin’ up some Taco meat is to just buy the pre-packaged seasoning, and I get it! It’s easier, cheaper, and requires zero effort. But making your own seasoning can be just as simple, and you…
