Korean Barbecue Pork Bowl

My husband and I took our son, Dax, to yet another fall festival last night. I honestly can't get enough of them, mainly because it so freaking fun to watch him have so much fun! He loves the giant slides, seeing the farm animals, and really just running amok. He's never been the kind of... Continue Reading →

Garlic Parmesan Chicken Stew (in the Slow Cooker)

I've been taking a break from my usual salads for lunch the past few weeks and have been making big pots of soups and stews for work lunches instead. It's so nice to mix things up and experiment with different flavors while still getting plenty of vegetables and clean protein. It's especially nice when I... Continue Reading →

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 →

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 →

He doesn't get sick often, and I thought chasing... Continue Reading →

Every Sunday morning I very quickly (because I don't feel like spending all day meal prepping and... Continue Reading →

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 →

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 →

Tomato Basil Soup

With the school year starting in less than two weeks, I'm in full on freezer meal mode. Soups are one of my favorite things to make and freeze because you can heat them up so quickly and serve them with a deli meat sandwich or panini for a super quick weeknight dinner. When life gets...
