Loaded Zucchini Boats

Row row row your boat, gently down the stream… merrily merrily merrily merrily, life is better with zucchini boats. That’s how it goes, right? I’ve been on a zucchini kick lately; sautéing them with other veggies, making them into zoodles, and now stuffing them full of yummy goodness! They make a perfect little edible shell….

The Best Burger with Homemade Buns

The BEST buns: homemade, from scratch, soft, buttery, perfectly toasted, with a hint of sweetness. They can be used for any type of sandwich, or even eaten alone as toast! 😁🍔

Super Yum Roasted Veggie Bowl

A bed a silky kale, topped with roasted sweet potato, broccoli, beets, brussels sprouts, and red onion, sprinkled with crispy chickpeas and red quinoa. The ultimate veggie lover dream bowl. I’ve been trying to eat more vegetables, but don’t always feel like doing all the cleaning/chopping work that is required to make what I want….

Quick & Easy Chicken Pot Pie

As the days get cooler, my meals get warmer, and heartier. I’ve made chicken pot pie a good few times before, and this way is becoming a favorite, since it uses an already cooked chicken and refrigerated pie crust from the grocery. That’s two less, quite time consuming parts, already made. So it’s quick &…

Avocados are one of my favorite foods (up there with kale). Super versatile, good on its own, or added to almost any dish for smooth creamy fatty yumminess. When they stopped carrying my favorite avocado dressing at the grocery, I decided it was time to make my own creation. Since I was making roasted vegetables,…

I was craving barbecue chicken, but wanted to try something a little different than just my go to barbecue sauce*. I decided to add a little twist to it with fresh ingredients. I made a simple spice mixture, chopped up some garlic and onion, added in fresh blueberries, then combined it with my barbecue sauce….

Juicy Sous Vide Pork Tenderloin with Herb Sauce

This is my absolute favorite way to make pork tenderloin. I use my Sous Vide* a lot. It’s super simple to use, no rush or time crunching, no need to worry if it is cooked all the way through, or needs to be in longer. It is perfectly cooked every time. Then it’s a quick sear…

Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers

Philly cheesesteak sandwiches are so good, but sometimes I don’t want the added carbs of the bread. Solution: skip the bread and don’t slice up the peppers. Instead, stuff all the sandwich ingredients into the pepper. Wah-lah! Preheat oven to 325º. Slice each pepper in half, place them in a baking pan and bake for…
