Bacon and Apple Fall Salad with Maple Balsamic Vinaigrette

I don't know about you, but my family typically skips the green salads on Thanksgiving because there is already so much food and not enough room (on the table and in our stomachs). I know a lot of families do salad on Thanksgiving, and if you've been tasked with bringing one to your family Thanksgiving... Continue Reading →

Banana Nut Muffins (Grain Free, Refined Sugar Free)

Banana nut anything is one of my favorite treats. Doesn't matter whether it's muffins, bread, or pancakes... banana nut is the ultimate comfort combination. My husband and I struggle with wanting something sweet during the week while trying to keep our diet clean Monday through Friday (because of course we cheat on the weekends!). These...

Grain Free, Veggie-Packed Mac and Cheese

We had this Grain Free, Veggie-Packed Mac and Cheese for dinner last night, and my husband made sure to tell me how much he loved it (he's a food for fuel kind of guy most of the time, so when he compliments a recipe, he really means it). Then, at lunch time today as he... Continue Reading →

Savory Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato Mash

I'm always looking for new good dinner sides. Lately we've fallen into the cycle of eating chopped roasted vegetables with almost every meal. Now don't get me wrong, roasted vegetables are one of my absolute favorite things, BUT you've gotta mix it up every once in a while, because too much of anything, even the... Continue Reading →

Chicken Tikka Masala (Slow Cooker Recipe!)

It's my fall break from work this week which is really just an extra long weekend, nothing to get too excited about. I am taking the opportunity to get some things done around the house, and that includes stocking up on some more freezer meals for the next couple of months. One of my go... Continue Reading →

Pork and Sweet Potato Baked Wontons

I don't know about you, but every time I get Chinese or Thai food, I need those cream cheese filled fried wontons (and to be honest I could probably just eat those and be happy). This weekend I was craving these, but I wasn't in the mood for a whole meal of Thai or Chinese.... Continue Reading →

Slow Cooker Vegetable Beef Soup

I was so grateful for this past weekend because all three members of my little family were finally healthy (we've all been fighting a nasty cold/virus for the past three weeks), so I didn't want to sit at home yesterday. After running my usual Sunday errands, the weather was so perfect we decided to head... Continue Reading →

Rich and Creamy Sweet Potato Soup

When fall comes around, I always crave butternut squash soup. I normally just buy it at restaurants because butternut squashes are a pain in the butt to deal with, at least I think so. I always make my husband cut them up for me, and I can never tell when they're "ready". I realized I... 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 →
