Sweet Potato Burrito Bowls

I mentioned in my weekly meal prep post for the week of 04/09 how we make vegetarian burrito bowls on the regular. They’re so simple and basic, which makes them super easy to throw together in a hurry.

White Bean & Beef Stew

I’ve gotten into the habit of browsing the grocery ads before shopping each week to see what’s on sale and I try to plan around it. This past week, beef stew meat was on sale, so obviously I grabbed some.

Strawberry Bruschetta & Grilled Chicken Salad

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for summertime. Lemonade, long dog walks, sunshine and ALL of the strawberries. I made the mistake of glancing at the 15 day forecast and it’s a little depressing. Pretty much no sunlight and lots of rain for at least the next 15 days. 😦 But that’s alright….

Crockpot Taco Soup

While there is certainly no shortage of crockpot taco soup recipes out there, I figured I’d go ahead and throw mine in the mix too.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

I’d like to think I know a thing or two about BBQ. My dad taught himself how to BBQ and competed in lots of BBQ competitions when I was younger. I never really helped him make anything, but I was an unofficial taste tester. Rain or shine, he was out there smoking something nearly every…

Skillet Taco Meat

As I delve deeper into the idea of meal planning/organization, I want to begin sharing some quick recipes/non-recipes that we use regularly. This taco meat is a standard around here. It’s simple, freezes well and is versatile. Sometimes I’ll put it in tortillas and make burritos, sometimes I’ll roast some sweet potatoes to go with…

Cheesy Kielbasa & Broccoli Skillet

Sometimes you need a big bowl of something covered in cheese. If you add broccoli to the bowl of something covered in cheese, you feel much better about eating it. Proven fact.

Hemp & Rice Breakfast Bowl

Brown rice flavored with sweet paprika and eggs that have been fried in coconut oil topped with hemp seeds, hot sauce and sour cream — only 10 minutes to food!

Cauliflower Huevos Rancheros

I complicate things. I try so hard to come up with good recipes for this blog, that I end up coming up with nothing at all and feel defeated. As soon as I step away and start cooking for myself and my own enjoyment again, things get tasty. I’m really going to focus on sharing…

Cheddar Grits with Sausage and Kale

I’m always on the lookout for savory breakfast ideas that go beyond potatoes and eggs. There’s more of a challenge for me personally, since my husband doesn’t eat meat. Last week I made grits and topped them with a bag of frozen quinoa and kale mix we picked up from Costco and they were delicious….

Sweet Potato Oatmeal

One of my all time favorite vegetables is sweet potatoes. Sweet potatoes seemed to have somehow been relegated to only being covered in obscene amounts of sugar, marshmallows and pecans for only 2 days a year.

White Bean Tuna Salad

When I was younger, we ate a lot of tuna salad. My mom would make a big bowl of it and we’d all sit around the table. She’d pass out slices of American cheese and we would fold them in half one way and then again the other way to tear them into perfect squares….
