Sweet Potato Beef Chili

February 14, 2015

Hey friends! Happy Valentine’s Day to you all!

I’m super excited to tell you that today, I’m leaving on a one-week cruise in the Caribbean! What better way could you think of spending Valentine’s Day and my third year anniversary of dating Sean than that? What’s also awesome about this is that for an entire week I’ll have little to no Internet or cell phone access, so I’ll be truly, completely off the grid.

But fear not, I’ll be back before you know it and ┬ámaking you totally jealous with pictures of beaches and blue water and warm weather. First though, a unique twist on an old classic: slow cooker beef chili with sweet potatoes.

Sausage and Apple Spaghetti Squash Pasta

December 10, 2014

It’s been a while since I’ve written a post that’s paleo-friendly and low carb, and I didn’t do it on purpose, but it just sort of happened that way. I figure, with the holidays (and all their temptations) upon us, who couldn’t benefit from a great, filling meal that’s a little more figure-friendly. Once you dig into my chicken sausage and apple spaghetti squash pasta, you won’t think it’s low-calorie, it tastes so indulgent. Continue reading

Balsamic Onion-Smothered Burgers with Feta Cheese

July 31, 2014

I love burgers. Growing up, whenever we would go out to eat, it was a pretty fair guess that my order would be a cheeseburger. A little ketchup, a little mustard, some yellow American cheese and nothing else. Perfection.

Your New Use for Leftover Chicken: Chicken Stir-Fry

July 16, 2014

Last night I didn’t feel like cooking. I just could not even. I also was over salad. Done. Can’t do it. Finito. But I had some leftover chicken breast and I needed a quick idea for it. What did you do you, you ask? Well, I did a big, easy, chicken and veggie stir-fry. It turned out to be just the ticket too.

Ultimate Go-To Salad

July 14, 2014

Hi friends,

I don’t know about you, but during the summer, I feel a lot less inclined to get into a hot kitchen to cook up something in the oven – besides easy things like cookies or my peanut butter banana bread, anyway. Lucky for me, my boyfriend Sean is an expert griller, and even better he enjoys doing it. No lie. My dad’s never been a big fan of the grill aside from a few times during the summer, so I didn’t know what I was really missing until we started dating and Sean introduced me to the beauty of a perfectly grilled rib eye. In fact, we grill at least once a week in warm weather. Which brings me to my post for today: the perfect summer salad to compliment your grilled meat.
