Spaghetti Squash Boat

  Hi guys! Has 2015 proven to be a busy one for you, like it has for me? It’s been a good busy, but none the less, busy. I promise to get back on my Monday/Wednesday/Friday schedule in the next few weeks, once things slow down a little. In the meantime, I have parties, parties, […]

Pesto Hedgehog Sweet Potatoes

I’ve always loved the idea of making hedgehog potatoes, also known as hasselback potatoes. The thought of making them was always tucked away in the back of my mind, along with a thousand other recipes floating alongside it. It wasn’t until my good friend, Kelsey, made me a sweet potato version for dinner back in […]

Classic Chicken Kiev

Here we are, on the last day of this year. I don’t know about you, but 2014 sure went by fast! We all have a mild head cold so there are no exciting plans for tonight. And I’m almost 99% sure I’ll be asleep by 10pm (we celebrate East Coast time New Year’s Eve over […]

Chili Verde

Being a busy family of four, we are all about quick-prep meals for the week. This chili verde is our favorite go-to meal that requires less than five minutes of prep time and delivers a knock out dish that lasts for the entire week. We use our slow cooker for most of our stewed meats, […]

Chicken Tetrazzini with Broccoli and Cauliflower

  My sister and I started a tradition called “Sister Sundays.” It’s where we get together with our little offspring and spend one day of the week together, on Sundays. It’s something we truly look forward to. Our kids get to play with their cousins, and my sister and I can catch up on, ‘seester’ […]

Big Pot of Chili

I’ve been dreaming of a big pot of chili for a while now. But it wasn’t until my aunt asked for my chili recipe for a cook-off at work, that I realized I had never posted my go-to chili recipe on el blog. Sure, I’ve posted this pumpkin chili recipe, that happens to be crazy […]

Sweet Potato Tacos

  We’ve been home for week with our new little bundle of joy, Henry. Maybe this is too soon to say, but the second time around doesn’t feel as hard of an adjustment. Sleep deprivation is a little bit more manageable. Working off of a new eating/pooping/sleeping schedule doesn’t feel as stressful. Guess you can […]

Thanksgiving Leftovers Pot Pie

After the big feast, do you ever wonder what to do with all of those leftovers? Sure, you can make leftover turkey sandwiches or turkey soup, but you can also make a hot turkey pot pie, stuffed with everything good from Thanksgiving.  Cornbread stuffing (or bread, whichever is your family’s favorite), dried cranberries, carrots, peas […]

At My Thanksgiving Table

This year our family will not be hosting Thanksgiving. We’ll be spending it with my in-laws in the Bay Area, but if I were to host it, this is what would have at my Thanksgiving table. For table settings, I like to make it simple and sweet, with a touch of elegance. This time of […]

Cauliflower Rice

This here is my new favorite way to eat rice. Cauliflower rice, or how I like to call it, Cauli-rice, is simply amazing. It tastes so close to the real contender that even my husband didn’t notice he was missing the carb version. The preparation is pretty easy, toss chunks of cauliflower into a food […]
