Sweet Potato Chili 3

Chili con Carne with Sweet Potatoes and Lentils

     Alrighty folks, I am at it again.  Now that I’ve quit my job to stay home with my little one I have time (sorta…between rounds of peek-a-boo and the itsy bitsy spider and during 20 minute naps which is all we get around here) to spend on my little food blog.  The past…

Easter

Me and Bridget Kate.  Sad Kyle had to be in North Carolina for the holiday I am a little late but I have so many thoughts this Easter Season. This time of year holds a lot of memories for me. The twins’ due date was April 4th of 2014.  Right smack dab in the middle…

Bridget Kate

Well I’ve been pretty much missing to the world since February 7 due to the arrival of our sweet, perfect, beautiful, baby girl! (*Note: Pinterest pictures of girls with perfect hair and makeup after delivering a baby are totally unrealistic. I was a sweaty, sobbing, but happy mess!) She was 6 lbs 11 oz, 19.5…

Spaghetti Squash with Sausage and Kale

So when I made this I really had no intention of posting the recipe.  I guess I just wasn’t overly confident that it would be very good. It was simple and quick and I thought it would be a pretty typical weeknight meal, nothing fancy, but boy was it was delicious. We have an ABUNDANCE…

Asparagus

Asparagus with Pecans and Shallots

So I am an absolute Asparagus LOVER. It definitely is up there with my favorite vegetables. Although who could REALLY have a favorite vegetable? If I absolutely had to choose it might be tomato, which is silly because I don’t LOVE raw tomatoes. But think of all of the foods we wouldn’t have without tomatoes….

Menu Planning

So I love posting recipes, but another equally important aspect of having delicious and well prepared meals without being totally stressful is menu planning. My Dear Husband and I are saving like nobody’s business lately. Now is probably the only time in the history of EVER that we will have a surplus in our income…and…

Creamy Chicken Noodle

My Favorite Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup

So we eat a LOT of soup around here. Soup is one of my favorite winter foods, it’s so easy to make, lasts for a week in the fridge, and around here is usually healthy and veggie loaded. This soup is an adaptation of my Mom’s chicken noodle soup that I absolutely LOVED eating as…
