Each year when fall rolls around I get a craving for warm, delicious comfort food. It never fails. The chillier weather and falling leaves leave me yearning for hearty stews and roasts almost as much as all my favorite, fall...
I’ve been wanting to make gazpacho for at least a month now. It’s one of those things I’ve been dying to try but just didn’t feel like I had the time to commit to make it, which was silly...
As we get deeper into the summer months I have been craving all the vegetables. Greens, beans and everything in between has been on our menu. Sometimes I like to just eat them raw with ranch or hummus, but...
Summer is finally here and with it comes the desire to lounge in the sun, eat watermelon and grill anything covered in barbecue sauce. The first thing most people think of when they hear barbecue is ribs and they are...
I just don’t have the kind of stomach that likes to eat first thing in the morning – unless it’s coffee. Around 10 a.m. my stomach decides to wake up and starts growling at me. By then I’m famished...
While I don't like the idea of "diet" foods, I do adhere to the idea of eating healthy and nutritious foods for most of my meals. I really try to eat foods that are nutritious for me including fish...
Most of the time, I try to eat a lower-carb diet. Don’t get me wrong, I love carbs, but carbs love my thighs too. One of the easiest ways for me (and everyone) to cut out carbs is to replace...
I love soups, all kinds of soups. I can eat them all year round, even in the heat of the summer, and I love making leftovers into a bowl of hearty goodness. For me all holidays provide an opportunity to...
When my husband decided to go on Whole 30, I had to roll my eyes. He isn’t a large man, but he has wanted to lose some of the weight that has attached itself to his dad bod. But,...
Whenever we have a big family party, pasta is always involved. We’re Italian so I’ve grown up with delicious, homemade pasta dishes that would make people salivate. Homemade noodle, sauce, meatballs…you name it and my grandmother has probably made...
If you’ve been following my recipes for a while then you know I’m not dairy-free, gluten-free or anything-free-type-girl. I love using whole foods – cream, whole milk, butter, olive oil, real chocolate, real sugar, etc. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle...
When Thanksgiving is over, I quickly tire of leftovers. The turkey sandwich works for about one day but I always feel as if I’m throwing away so many of the sides and not utilizing everything as best I could....
I love a good bowl of soup. Better yet, I love a good bowl of soup that includes ramen noodles! (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || ).push({}); I grew up on ramen. It was my lunch of choice as a kid...
This post was sponsored by Old El Paso. All thoughts and opinions are my own. It may be early fall still but it's chilly here already, especially at night. I spent most of the day today running around in a...
I'm on a fish recipe kick lately. I love how I feel after eating fish at dinner (full but not too stuffed), how satisfied I am after dinner and how I feel the next morning. (adsbygoogle...
I’ve really been trying to do more with less lately. We are one income down (mine) and with 1,000 medical bills (my son’s) I’ve been trying so hard to stick to a grocery shopping budget each week. It’s different...
Confession: Sometimes I make food my husband says he doesn’t like just to see if he really doesn’t like it or if he just thinks he doesn’t like it. Case in point, this Coconut Milk Curry Shrimp. This one-pan Coconut Milk...
