I LOVE spices! I can’t imagine not having a stocked spice cabinet. I grew up with a mom who had a stocked spice cabinet and now I am a mom with a stocked spice cabinet. I can only hope I’m passing my love of spices to my boys as well.
There’s only one problem being a spice lover: They’re darn expensive!
That’s what happened this weekend when I did a quick google search for butternut squash ideas.
I don’t really search recipes, I search photos. I’ll put the ingredients I want to work with in google and do an image search. Then I just keep scrolling and scrolling until something screams out at me. Read the rest of this post »»
There’s something you need to know about me: For YEARS I avoided whole chickens. Honestly, I avoided pretty much any meat with bones. If it wasn’t boneless chicken breasts or boneless pork chops or ground meat, I wasn’t buying or cooking it.
I’m not sure why. I guess I was scared of not cooking it correctly. I thought it was time consuming. I thought it was, well, too much work.

Anyway, as soon as I posted it all these questions rolled in so I thought I’d share the post sooner rather than later. Read the rest of this post »»
I’m in that mode where I buy a bunch of fresh produce in the beginning of the week with no real plan on how I’m going to use it. I’ve learned over the course of the last 7 years –pretty much since I overhauled my diet– that if I buy it and keep it in plain site, I’ll figure out a way to eat it because I HATE throwing good food away.
Of course I modified the idea using what I had on hand. The result couldn’t have been more satisfying! It was fresh, light, tasty, and REALLY filling. I guess eating a whole large cucumber will do that to you!
