Black Bean Burgers

Black Bean Burgers

These are my new favorite things ever. OH MY. Delicious, flavorful, and super healthy! Vegetarian or not (I am not), you don’t have to be limited to gross, bland veggie-tofu burgers in order to eat a healthy burger.

Finger Lickin’ Thai Chicken

If I could include an audio clip to advertise this recipe, it would be the soundtrack of my husband eating it…all your standard “mmm”s and “oh my god”s but with quadruple the enthusiasm.

Panko Crusted Coconut Shrimp

To celebrate my husband’s promotion yesterday, I wanted to make something special for dinner that we don’t get to have often.

It seems my family was decades ahead of the kale craze since it is now hailed as one of the great SUPERFOODS!…which is just a cute way … Continue reading

Light Shepherd’s Pie

Light Shepherd’s Pie

Yesterday was the last straw with my life as I am currently living it. The word “control” tends to have a diabolical connotation to it (even though it shouldn’t unless you are controlling), but I am a person that needs to feel some sense of control of my life and the things going on around … Continue reading
