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….

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…

Mediterranean Pasta

Pasta pasta pasta. Super easy to make and can be paired with a lot of different flavored sauces. When I was younger, I preferred my pasta with butter and parmesan cheese. No sauce, which in my family, was seen as very odd. My brother only liked meatballs and sauce. We did eventually grow out of…

When exhaustion sets in…

We are winding down on these wintry months, thankfully! Another giant snowstorm last week, almost didn’t make our flight out! Alexa and I went to go see my Mom, she moved to NC in July. Now the weather down there, awesome! 55 degrees and sunny, sounds perfect for March. We explored the American Tobacco District…

Meatballs Gone Wild

Happy Friday Everyone! This has been a week of comfort foods. When the weather is so rainy and gloomy, there is nothing better than a home-cooked comfort meal. Comfort foods are different for everyone. Anywhere from mashed potatoes, mac n cheese, a big bowl of beef stew; all of which are delicious. My personal favorite…
