Spaghetti Squash with Parsley Pesto

Spaghetti Squash With Parsley Pesto

If you haven’t hopped on the spaghetti squash bandwagon you are totally missing out!

Every time I cook one I wonder why I’m not eating more of it. It’s such a fun squash and so versatile — click here to see all the ways I’ve used it. 

Today, inspired by a bunch of fresh parsley, I Googled and found this. Then I went on a pantry hunt. Read the rest of this post »»

Collard Green soup with Cannelloni Beans

Collard Green Soup With Cannelloni Beans

Soup, soup and more SOUP!

I can’t get enough and with temperatures literally dropping by 25 degrees today I may have to make even more!

I have one bowl left of this soup I made Friday after getting my farm share on Thursday. I was pretty uninspired by the bunch of collards I had in my basket but now …  Read the rest of this post »»

Chia and Wild Blueberry Bowl

Chia and Wild Blueberry Bowl

I ran out of eggs! Me!

No, you don’t understand. I NEVER run out of eggs. I have an egg system. I always have a dozen in use, a dozen in the back of the fridge and when I buy more I rotate.

At the end of the week, the dozen in use gets hard boiled,… Read the rest of this post »»

Clementine and White Wine Braised Chicken

Clementine and White Wine Braised Chicken

Yesterday was our first full day home after traveling for the holidays and you’d think I’d be prepared with something to make for dinner but I wasn’t.  Around 4 o’clock I found myself rummaging through the freezer to see what I had because there was no way we were eating out again. Especially considering today is New Year’s Eve and we already have plans to visit a local restaurant to celebrate. Read the rest of this post »»

Onion and Mushroom Soup

Onion and Mushroom Soup

I warned you! I’m on a soup kick!

Every Christmas Eve for the past few years I’ve made a batch of homemade French onion soup and served it alongside crab legs, steamed shrimp, fried fish and roasted cauliflower. It’s a fun tradition we all look forward to for different reasons. The Husband goes nuts for the shrimp. The 8-year-old can eat his weight in crab legs and the 2-year-old is a cauliflower fanatic.

Sausage Potato Chard Soup

Sausage Potato Chard Soup

I’m back with my CSA and loving the challenge of using what I get week-to-week. Every basket is an adventure!

This week 4 things really stood out for me.

Fresh pork sausage, onion, potatoes, and swiss chard. I immediately thought: Soup!

At first I thought the potatoes were just regular old white ones. Read the rest of this post »»

Fun Light Holiday Appetizer - Mini Babybel Bites

Fun, Light Holiday Appetizer – Mini Babybel Bites

My first Ugly Sweater Christmas party is tomorrow! I’m so excited! I haven’t thrown a party in years. Before I had kids I used to be Ms. Host. Don’t misunderstand, they weren’t Martha Stewart-like cocktail parties — I’d just invite everyone I knew over and we’d end up playing some kind of college drinking games (anyone else a beer pong fan?) until the wee hours of the morning.

Black, I mean, Kidney Bean Spaghetti Squash Boats

Black, I mean, Kidney Bean Spaghetti Squash Boats

Ever since I saw Gina’s Cheesy Baked Spaghetti Squash Boats with Grilled Chicken earlier this year I’ve been wanting to make spaghetti squash “boat style.” It seems like such a fun and easy way to make an intimidating squash, well, less intimidating. Read the rest of this post »»

Pressed Ham Sandwich with Orange Marmalade and Cream Cheese

Pressed Ham Sandwich With Orange Marmalade and Cream Cheese

I rarely eat traditional sandwiches anymore. It’s weird. Growing up I lived off them. Always partial to mustard and cheese but truth be told, I’m not picky now and wasn’t back then. If you slapped it between two slices of … Read the rest of this post »»

Almond Date Cookie Balls

Almond Date Ball Cookies

Sorry I’ve been MIA — I was scoping out hotels for FitBloggin and bumming around Denver with my friend Jen — Click here to see our fun travel video. 

Every time I travel I don’t realize how much I miss my kitchen until I get home. Then, I’m like: I must cook something NOW and these were my “something now.” Read the rest of this post »»

Cocoa Dusted Banana Bites

Cocoa-Dusted Banana Bites

You’re going to either think I’m a genius or just plain weird after this one.

The week before thanksgiving I was craving something chocolate. I was moments from ripping open a bag of chocolate chips I bought for holiday baking when I spied my bananas and it made me pause.

If I was REALLY hungry and not just looking for something to eat, the banana would be appealing and it sort of was but I really, REALLY wanted chocolate. Read the rest of this post »»
