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. Advertisements

Honey Pecan Butter

Have you ever thought about how tastebuds change? One minute, your 6 years old and your sliding every single vegetable that touches your plate down to the dog under the table; hoping and praying no one notices. The next, you’re 27 and loading up at the all you can eat salad bar in your local…

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….

Cumin Spiced Jasmine Rice

I never understood people who said they often craved a big bowl of rice. I mean, really? Rice? Now I get it.

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.

Basic Homemade Granola

The first time I had homemade granola, it was a gift from a friend. It was gingerbread flavored and it was amazing. I always had it in my head that making my own granola wasn’t practical or cost efficient — boy, was I wrong.

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!
