Chili with Crusty Bread

Hello everyone! It has been quite some time since my last post. I never knew almost 2 months could fly by so quickly. My new job has kept me busier than I ever thought and it has been great! I’m sure it will be awhile before I have a hold on balancing my new job,…

Sausage, Peppers and Onions Quinoa Skillet

Super simple dinners have been key the past few weeks. Moving was more of a project than I thought it would be. Glad it’s over! Slowly adjusting to a new life, new schedule, new everything. I’ve spent a lot of my time hanging out with my dogs. As long as they have a window seat,…

Chicken Enchiladas with Poblano Cream Sauce

I cannot believe Summer is over. Life as I know it is about to completely change… September seemed quite far away when Alexa and I made the decision to move to North Carolina. Now it is September and we leave in less than a week. Leaving a place I have lived my entire life, a…

Avocado-Basil Pesto

Taking a basic recipe and putting a new twist on it, is what I love to do. By changing one or two ingredients you can make a completely new recipe. This is a super simple, quick recipe you can make in less than 5 minutes. Pesto is not something I have very often. It’s one…

‘Not Your Average’ Lasagna

Italian food will always be my go-to type of cuisine; either for eating out or cooking at home. Pasta and sauce was a weekly staple growing up. (Although, back then I preferred just noodles with some butter and parmesan  cheese). Whenever I actually have the time on a Sunday, I love to make sauce. The…

General Tso Cauliflower

Hello Meatless Mondays! If you haven’t heard, Cauliflower is in. This seems to be the new trend in the food world. Cauliflower rice, cauliflower pizza dough, and cauliflower bites with any kind of sauce you can think of. Naturally, I had to try them all! Cauliflower rice in a stir fry dish, great low-carb alternative….

Zucchini Brownies…YES

Yes, this is another dessert recipe. Yes, it contains a decent amount of zucchini. Don’t judge it ’til you try it! I will never get tired of eating chocolate. It completes a meal for me, in whatever form, usually ice cream. So it totally makes sense for a second posting about a chocolate dessert. This…

Brownie Mug Cake

When you have changed your eating habits to a low-carb, no added sugar, non-processed type of thing, finding a dessert that fits into all those categories can be a little tricky. Now don’t get me wrong, I will not say no to a ‘twist’ ice cream in a waffle cone or a warm brownie. However,…

Greek Yogurt Bagels

It’s gonna be…. oh wait, it’s already May.  Flowers blooming, trees budding, it’s finally Spring! Now that the weather is cooperating, exercising outside is a must. Running outside most definitely beats running on a treadmill. The scenery alone makes it much easier run more miles at a time. There are just so many more activities…

Shrimp Burrito Bowl

BIG WEEK friends. Moving is tiresome, I’m sure all of you agree with that statement. Even with movers, it’s just a long process. I’ve moved countless times over the past 5 years or so. But it’s a good move and so incredibly happy, especially now that it’s over 😉 Anyways, another thing we can probably…
