Red, White, & Blue Crisp

Wow, ya’ll. The past two months have blurred by! I’m not sure where June went, or how we are even in July, but things have been downright crazy! In May I turned the big 3-0. *gasp* I wasn’t too nervous about it and celebrated the day with family, but its still super weird to think…

Chicken, Kale, & Sweet Potato Soup

  It finally feels like Autumn here in North Carolina!! *happy dance* In fact, I was so excited to see that it would be in the 60’s today that I broke out one of my long-sleeve blouses to wear to work. HA! But fall means delightful things. Like pumpkins, sweet potatoes, FOOTBALL (Yes, NCSU IS…

Herb Steak Foil Pouches

The past couple of months have been sort of crazy with an assortment of doctor’s visits, medication switches, and a couple of biopsies to top it all off. The biopsies came back great – praise GOD for that!! But still, my body needs to get its act together. Enough’s enough! One cool thing the doctor…

Berry Almond Crumble

  Summer temperatures have been out of control this year here in North Carolina! Truly out of control! And for me, when its too hot, I find that I want anything but chocolate to munch on. I know, I KNOW!! You’re probably thinking: Anything but chocolate?! Is this girl for real? *nods* Yes, yes I…

CRVQ (Chicken + Roasted Veggies + Quinoa)

Last week I mentioned that I was trying my hand at meal-prepping. I’m happy to say that it worked out fairly well for me…except I ran out of food by Thursday night because I didn’t calculate enough meals for the whole week!!! HA!! But, I’m happy to reveal that the meals I did eat where…

Breakfast Stuffed Peppers

Over the weekend, I decided to give meal-prepping a try. Have you ever done meal-prepping? It’s where you plan out every.single.meal for the entire week and cook everything in 1-2 days, allowing the rest of your week the freedom for all the other fun activities you’ve got going on. Sounds awesome, right? Knowing that my biggest…

Beef Brisket

I haven’t posted a recipe in 2 months…which is basically forever!! Right?! 🙂 After scouring the web – thank you Pinterest!! – for a few hours this weekend while watching Christmas movies, I stumbled across a recipe for Beef Brisket. In.A.Crock.Pot! Having never made brisket before, I was a tad on the nervous side. I…

Hawaiian Barbecue Chicken

After a well-spent evening of pinning away on Pinterest while watching tv, I stumbled across this amazing recipe for Hawaiian Barbecue Chicken. There was only one problem – the recipe called for a grill and I don’t own a grill!! So I came up with a solution using Reynolds Foil + my oven. AND IT WORKED!! I…

Thanksgiving in Your Mouth (or, Sweet Potato Shepherd’s Pie)

I love holidays – especially Christmas and Thanksgiving! All the decorations, the holiday cheer, carols, and spending time with loved ones. It’s the best!! I also love the food. THE FOOD!!! Oh my goodness – listen, Thanksgiving & Christmas have the best food of all the holidays. Granted, the summer holidays are great because they involve…

White Chicken Chili

Its near the end of the month which means my bank account has dwindled down to basically nothing and its time to raid the pantry and freezer to see what I can cook up. Anyone else in the same boat? 🙂 At least payday is coming closer!! *cheers* This White Chicken Chili is bound to…
