So, in case you were wondering, I’m still here. I know it’s been way too long since I posted any new recipes, but holy man, the holidays took way more of a toll on me than I was counting on. My in-laws came to town for Christmas but that wasn’t even the rough part. As […]
I remember the first time I ever cooked a turkey. Luckily, it isn’t one of those first-timer experiences that involves a fire truck or inedible food. It was pretty uneventful, for the most part. And the turkey was edible and appeared to be enjoyed by all, whether they were lying or not does not matter […]
Snow is in the forecast, the air is cooler, and it’s still dark at 7:00am. That means it’s time for slowcooker meals that fill the house with delicious aromas and give you that warm, cozy feeling. Unless you have a fireplace, in which case I would suggest using that too, because fireplaces are awesome. I […]
So, you know how I was just talking about how much I love Fall and it’s the bestest of all the seasons? Well, Rob decided we needed to go take advantage of the cooler temps and head up to the mountains for the weekend to check out the beautiful Aspens changing to their golden hues. […]
Life is getting pretty hectic around here lately. The kids have activities 4 nights a week and football games every Saturday morning. It’s taking a toll on my meal planning. I don’t know how parents handle teenagers and their activities! Holy cow, I’m stressed with a 6-year-old & 8-year-old, I might not make it to […]

Wait, what? Baking a steak? I know, it might sound strange, because it’s not how we’ve been programmed to cook steak. Steak should br grilled, seared, but not baked. However, this is one of those less commonly used cooking methods that really should gain more traction. The best part about this is that you can […]
So, first off, let me apologize for disappearing for almost 2 weeks. What the heck?! I don’t even know how that happened. I’ve got 2 posts I’ve been working on but just haven’t had the (kid-free) time to concentrate on them and I’ve been in a food rut (meaning we’ve been eating out too much […]
You know what I love? Crock pots. I love crock pots. I got mine a decade ago as my very first engagement gift from my grandma. When I got it, I thought, “Well isn’t that nice, but I’ll probably never use it”. I was so naive. Crock pots are freaking awesome. You just throw a […]
You know how you stare in the fridge and pantry and can’t figure out what the freak you should make? You just keep staring like the food will rearrange itself and magically make your dinner for you. Or you will have some sudden burst of inspiration. Yeah, I do that. So last night, as I […]
Gonna be honest here, I’ve never actually had gnocchi. I suppose that automatically makes my opinion worthless on the topic, but I’ll keep going anyway. As you’re probably well aware by now, I’m always looking for new ways to prepare sweet potatoes. I had heard of gnocchi before and did some research on how to […]
Teriyaki anything is great. But what’s even better than that is easy food. Even better than that? Delicious easy food. And that’s what this is. There’s minimal stirring and no chopping. Just check on it every once in a while and you’re good to go. This is one of those dishes that is perfect to […]
Raise your hand if you love the lettuce wraps at P.F. Chang’s. You should have both hands up right now, otherwise we can’t be friends. Ok, good. Moving on… We don’t have a P.F. Chang’s in town. It’s actually been about 5 years since I lived in the same city as one. Not that the […]
