Finger Lickin’ Thai Chicken

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. I guess you could say this recipe was a win in my apartment… This one actually came to me on a hand-written … Continue reading

Light Chicken Marsala

Light Chicken Marsala

This past long weekend I was lucky enough to spend it with 5 of my best friends from college who flew down to Georgia to visit me. ¬†There were so many fun moments during the weekend that it is hard to choose a highlight but I’m betting that we could all agree the drive-through animal … Continue reading

Panko Crusted Coconut Shrimp

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. I have a weakness for shrimp and have been craving it for weeks, so really, this was a win-win situation. My automatic “go to” for shrimp is to serve it over a bed of … Continue reading

Sweet Potato Pesto Lasagna Rolls

Sweet Potato Pesto Lasagna Rolls

In the last few years, I have developed a deep appreciation for sweet potatoes – the taste, texture, health benefits, ease of cooking, I just love it all. BUT I hate when people serve it covered in sugar and marshmallows and all those other gross add-ins that bring down its nutritional value and natural great … Continue reading

Green (Kale) Burgers

Green (Kale) Burgers

In my house growing up, these were affectionately known as “green things” and “green hamburgers” and although perhaps unappealing to look at, they are delicious and very healthy! 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

Beef Barley Soup

Beef Barley Soup

Alrighty, I am back with another delicious and healthy fall soup recipe! Halloween was a complete bust last night so I’m just going to hope for a better experience next year when we are living back up north…though actually, the past 2 Halloweens up there have been ravaged by devastating snow and rain storms, so … Continue reading

Omega-3s and 2 Simple Salmon Recipes

Omega-3s and 2 Simple Salmon Recipes

Recently in all my free time, I came across a really interesting ¬†article in my psychology nerd magazine (here is a link to a digital copy of the article – it’s fascinating) about how women’s body ideals are so different from men’s…women think men prefer thin women but men naturally prefer curvier bodies (a.k.a. some … Continue reading

Easy Halloween Wreath

Easy Halloween Wreath

I’m not exactly sure why, but Halloween has always been one of my absolute favorite holidays. I love coming up with creative costume ideas, making them myself with everyday items, and getting to be someone or something else for a night and seeing what other people come up with. Part of my love of Halloween … Continue reading

Spaghetti Meatball Soup

Spaghetti Meatball Soup

Another fall Sunday, another soup day. What first attracted me to this soup recipe was how much it looked like my Nonnie’s meatball soup, but what solidified my attraction to it was that it also tasted like her soup. Now, nothing can exactly replicate her cooking, but this came close enough to bring me back … Continue reading

Crockpot Turkey Bean Chili

Crockpot Turkey Bean Chili

Well, the temperature is still in the 80’s down here and I’m probably going to lounge at the pool this afternoon, but I’m not letting that keep me from transitioning into hearty fall meals. I’ve about had it with the miserable job market down here so I’ve turned to cooking and researching new recipes to … Continue reading
