Easy Weeknight Red Thai Curry

Red Thai Curry I love this dish because it is, well delicious most importantly, and also a great meal you can prepare ahead of time if you have a really busy afternoon and know you won’t be able to make it back with enough mental stamina to prepare supper! It happens to me often… And…

Christmas Cookies 2019

Sheesh, it sure took me long enough! And I honestly almost boxed these babies up and forgot to post. Lucky for me, I found an Instagram challenge of all things that reminded me. These little cookie boxes are great gifts for teachers, friends, neighbors etc. We give them to the USPS, UPS, Fed Ex folks,…

Chia Jams

And no, I’m not talking about 90s style Chia Pet jingles. I’m talking jams and jellies made with chia seeds that will change your life! I recently discovered these and I cannot stop making them. It’s so easy and they’re so versatile! I’ve made grape jam, raspberry jam (personal favorite) and blueberry jam so far….

Coq Au Vin, Instant Pot Edition

Gosh I love this meal. And the French. Only they could turn an inexpensive meat like chicken thighs, braise it in some wine and turn it into a gourmet dish. Coq Au Vin sounds super fancy, but it’s shockingly simple. And you can throw it in the Instant Pot or Dutch Oven in the morning…

Saag Paneer(ish)

The funny thing is I don’t even know how to pronounce this dish… 🤣😬🤷🏻‍♀️ I just know that it is DELICIOUS! It’s like creamed spinach with these warm and flavorful Indian Spices. I had it at a local Indian restaurant here, then saw it in Bon Apetit Magazine and had to try it with my…

Cashew Butter and Jelly Cups

I mean… hubba hubba. Get in my belly? All the yum? Flipping delish? I mean. How would you caption this?! All of the above?… Even more amazing than the Reese’s PB Cup, if I may be so bold. I found this recipe from The Mindful Hapa and had to make it immediately!… with my 3…

Charred Endive Salad with Apples and Blue Cheese Dressing

So there I was. In Trader Joes. When suddenly I saw some Endives and thought, “gosh I’ve never in my life had an Endive. I should probably pick up 8 or so and experiment…” I think it turned out ok. But it did take about 8 or so for me to get this where I…

Monster Lemon Bars

They look like monsters and have a MONSTER flavor. Lol. Yummy and fun and healthy! A triple win in my book. These are basically lemon bars, but I was gifted a bunch of really fun Superfoods from Suncore and had to try them out. Also, I have to say- I loved what the Sapphire Wolfberry…

Chai Chia Caramel Apple Parfait

Argh! Why do my recipes have such long names?! I guess I’m not creativeenough to think of clever names for them, so I just sort of list the ingredients and hope it sounds recipe-worthy 🤣🤷🏻‍♀️ Finally started to cool down here in Texas, so I get ready to start making all the fall things! I…

Lets Talk FaHEAT-aahhhs

Fajitas. Another one of my summer favorites and another meal for endless yummy leftover possibilities. Kinda like these Easy Summer Kabobs, but wrapped in tortilla served with rice and beans style. Fajitas are also really great for entertaining because the guests can prepare them so many different ways! And it also gives you a chance…
