Zoodles and Cherry Tomatoes {Secret Recipe Club}

It’s another reveal day, and I am PUMPED to share this recipe. I was assigned Thyme for Cooking, and I didn’t have to do much research before the perfect recipe appeared. You see, I have been lusting after zoodles (zucchini noodles) and a spiralizer for a while now, but the hubby is a meat and potatoes guy. But my best… Continue reading

Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

A couple weeks into the New Year. How are you doing with your resolutions? I’m staying fairly on track– gym this morning, and I am currently still full of energy. I may crash this afternoon, but perhaps then a second cup of coffee will do the trick to keep me going the rest of the day. Since I’m on the straight… Continue reading

Honey-Drizzled Roasted Vegetables Over Polenta

As Austin cooks more (as I am more stressed by everyday life), he is getting creative, and I am eating well! The other night, he went into the kitchen with no plan, and came out with this– look below!       Amazing right?!? I think so! He roasted veggies and toasted walnuts and served it over fried polenta. And… Continue reading

Eggplant Parm Casserole

  Holy leftovers Batman! See these six containers above? This was after we ate 3-4 servings ourselves. So much food, and so delicious too. I bought a ton of eggplant at le Costco, so I had to think of many ways to make eggplant. It’s funny, but eggplant parm was not my first thought….but when it did come up, all… Continue reading

Honey Apple Quinoa

‘Tis the season to grill– so we have been grilling everything for dinner. Fish, steaks, chicken, hot dogs– everything and anything. But with the main part of the meal being cooked by the hubby outside, I needed to step up my side dish game. We love quinoa, polenta, and couscous, so most of our summer meals have one of these… Continue reading

Apple Cheddar Biscuits

On stressful days, I bake and cook. And yesterday was stressful….I made a HUGE dinner, but the stress wasn’t gone quite yet. I had pinned these biscuits from Baked by Rachel ages ago, and I finally had all the ingredients and plenty of time to relieve stress. I’m SOOO happy that I made them- dense but still moist (worst word ever)… Continue reading

Tomato and Zucchini Gratin {Secret Recipe Club}

This month for the Secret Recipe Club I was matched with Della Cucina Provera. I loved exploring Francesca’s blog. Her recipes look delicious– and she says that she is inspired by a Tuscan way of life. “It’s about simple, seasonal ingredients and forgiving measurements.” I can absolutely get behind that! I chose to make a Zucchini + Tomato Gratin– it was so… Continue reading

Tex Mex Spaghetti Squash

My best friend, Kristie, came to visit over a month ago (has it been a month since she visited, and I am just posting this now?!? Wow, I’m way too busy….), and we made a great spaghetti squash dish! I have no idea where the recipe came from, whether a cookbook or from her own invention, but it was absolutely… Continue reading

Quinoa Spinach Mac & Cheese

I love quinoa. I love spinach. I love cheese, lots of cheese. This is why this recipe from Bakeaholic Mama through Tasty Kitchen is perfection. I could lick the plate clean, and I did, in fact, lick the plate clean. And then I went for seconds! The hubby also loved it– it really was such an easy dish to make and… Continue reading
