Grain Free Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Icing

We just spent our Sunday at a fall festival where Dax got to go on his first hayride to pick out a pumpkin and ride a pony. The weather was perfect, and it was so fun to see him have blast. We came home and napped and relaxed and ate leftovers from the week for... Continue Reading →

Goetta and Sweet Potato Hash

There are three things I know for certain: 1. I love any breakfast food you put in front of me: sweet or savory, I'm down. 2. My one year old will eat anything that's dipped in maple syrup. 3. Goetta is the key to my husband's heart. These three things led to the epic meal... Continue Reading →

Maple Pork Chops with Brown Butter and Pumpkin Polenta

It's been raining since I woke up this morning, and last week was a really long one, so all my family wanted to do today was veg at home. A full day at home means time to experiment in the kitchen, and I'm glad I did because we had the perfect cozy dinner  tonight, which... Continue Reading →

Pumpkin Spice Baked Oatmeal Cups

It's September, and Pumpkin Spice Lattes are back (which I'm not really a fan of), but I love pumpkin spice everything else!

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bars (Flourless, Grain Free, and Low Carb)

As a teacher, summer is obviously my favorite season. I don't complain about the heat because I'm so grateful to have 2 months off work every year, BUT... as soon as school starts back up, I'm ready for fall. I love the cooler weather, the plaid flannels, and yes, I'm one of those people who... Continue Reading →

Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Every time I make a new batch of freezer meals, this turkey chili makes the cut. I've been making this chili for years now. I love it for three reasons: it's so easy, it's super healthy (also low carb and grain free!), and it's so flavorful. I'm not usually a huge fan of ground turkey,... Continue Reading →

Chocolate Chip Muffins (Grain Free and Low Carb)

After a particularly difficult week last week and having to miss my first three work days of the school year due to a family emergency, I needed something that would make my Monday a little bit special. Sometimes in life, when things happen that you can't control, and there is literally nothing that you can... Continue Reading →

Chicken and Broccoli Spicy Thai Noodles

After a busy afternoon, I needed a dinner I could prep and have ready in under 30 minutes since I just made it home around dinner time. Chicken and broccoli are staples in this household, and I've always got rice noodles in the pantry, so tonight I whipped up these absolutely delicious Chicken and Broccoli... Continue Reading →
