Moroccan Spiced Chicken and Sweet Potato Stew (The Perfect Fall Detox Meal)

Today is the first official day of Fall, and coincidentally it's the first break from the 90 degree heat where I live. I can't tell you how excited I am for sweatshirt and latte season!! Everything about fall feels cozy and comforting, and that includes the food. Fall food is my jam; God knows 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 →

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! There's something about the flavors in pumpkin spice that make you feel like you're sitting on your couch in an oversized sweatshirt with a hot cup of coffee, and that's pretty much all...

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Even though it's 90 degrees outside right now, and it's still officially summer, the season of sickness has begun. My son woke up with 102 degree fever last Wednesday, so getting him better dominated our long Labor Day weekend. Then, this morning, my husband and I both woke up feeling sick. Nothing too horrible, just... Continue Reading →

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 →

Easy Homemade Guacamole

Guacamole is probably the recipe I make most often (I'm talking at least once but sometimes twice a week!). My one year old son absolutely loves it. He would literally just stick his face in the bowl if we let him, and so yeah, we have guacamole a lot. And I'm okay with that because... 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 →

Blueberry Baked Oatmeal Cups

So as a teacher, I wake up REALLY early in the morning. I go in early so I can get all of my work done, that way I can leave right when school is over to pick up my son. With that being said, there isn't really a whole lot of time to cook breakfast... Continue Reading →
