So, this is my new favorite guacamole. I know I already have a guac recipe, but this one is way different and much easier to make on the fly. It’s really a “starter” that you make up to 2 weeks in advance and then you just add avocados when you’re ready. I’ll be honest, my […]
Do you have any idea how long I have been contemplating this Green Bean Casserole recipe? It’s been on my mind for a month, at least. You all kept telling me on Facebook that you wanted, needed, a recipe for green beans in time for Thanksgiving, but it was a feat I just didn’t want […]
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. […]
As much as I’d love to say I’m a Colorado native, alas, I am not. I was actually born and raised in the faraway land of another kind of sunshine: Florida. I lived there for 28 years, quite content in my season-less bubble, although I did seriously hate the ridiculously hot and humid summers. I […]
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 […]
You know what I love about summer? I mean besides the warm weather, camping, fun with my kids, and summer storms. I love the farmer’s market. We have a local farm that has a great CSA and we go every week and get delicious stuff. This week I got some of the best Honeycrisp apples […]
Are you so excited to have a “real food” recipe today and not some treat, snack, or dessert? I know the treat stuff is fun, but that’s obviously not the way to sustain a healthy lifestyle. I’ve been on a downward food spiral lately, always reaching for the nuts, dried fruit, and fresh fruit instead […]
This chili turned out really good, and I’m pretty impressed, considering my old, pre-paleo chili “recipe” came from a can of Bush’s Chili Starter, no lie. I was not about to win any chili cook-offs, so when this stuff actually tasted good, I was doing a little happy dance in my head. In my head because I can’t dance for real.
My failure to plan meals this week has really been catching up with me. Luckily, I had a backup plan that involved frozen Mahi Mahi, coconut butter (yum!), cashews, peaches, and tomatillos. Also, this was my first tomatillo experience, and it almost didn’t happen…
You can’t go wrong with BBQ or bacon, and this delicious recipe is stuffed with both! Easy to prepare, healthy, and delicious enough that everyone will ask for more. Plus, it’s a great way to sneak in some greens.
