10-Minute Creamy Ricotta Spinach & Shells

November 5, 2012

I’m starting to understand what moms mean when they say they have no time. To be totally honest I wasn’t all that great about time management prior to having Weston, but now?  It’s practically nonexistent.  I keep meaning to get a calendar to help me because apparently the ones I have going on my phone […]

Weeknight Spinach, Mushroom and Turkey Lasagna

August 23, 2012

This lasagna was made in pure we-need-something-to-eat-tonight innocence.  It was unassuming and simple to make, and I honestly didn’t have any intentions of blogging about it.   And then I tasted it. Fireworks went off on my palate.  I craved eating the entire pan after just the first bite.   Nate and I didn’t even […]

Lemon Basil Chickpea Salad

May 30, 2012

Let’s talk about summer today. Today I got my first mosquito bite of the summer since we’re in Dallas and that’s what happens in Dallas in the summer.   I have been sweating nonstop since our arrival in the great state of Texas, which is fine because it’s hot here and I prefer summer heat […]

Garlic Israeli Couscous

May 14, 2012

Anything that starts off with a photo of garlic and red pepper flakes frying…well, let’s just say there’s no chance it could be bad.   Let’s be honest – garlic is the best.  Always and forever.  Amen. The way I see it garlic is the glue that holds all food together.  I mean, I love […]

February 20, 2012

Ohmigosh, can we please just chat for a second about how much I LOVE chorizo? Now I know, I know, I KNOW what it is made out of traditionally and I know that hey, it’s not the healthier sausage choice for the world.  BUT it’s spicy and packs a ton of flavor and I don’t […]

Baked Eggs with Bacon and Spinach

February 3, 2012

Do y’all remember the scene in Runaway Bride (that’s an Oscar contender if I’ve ever seen one…) where Julia Roberts realizes that she doesn’t know how she likes her eggs?  You know, because she’s always turning herself into the girl that the guy she’s marrying wants to be with? Yeah.  That’s not me.   I […]

February 2, 2012

You guys, this quiche is a TOTAL surprise.  And it has a big, low-fat surprise inside… The crust for this bad boy?  POTATOES.  PO-TAY-TOES.  As in the ever so starchy, often boring, but extremely versatile root veggie.  I’m not promising you’ll never crave a pastry crust again but…well, if you’re like me you won’t.   […]

Creamy Crockpot Wild Rice

January 25, 2012

Statement of the day:  ‘Tis the season for filling our bellies with warm, creamy foods and snuggling in front of the TV with wild abandon. Agree or disagree?  I’m going to go ahead and say that the unexpected snowfall, the misty mountaintops, and the subsequent rain of yesterday will probably validate my statement, at least […]

Cheesy Baked Spinach and Sausage Pasta

September 14, 2011

I love trying new noodles. Is anyone else with me on this?  There’s something about a new noodle shape that I find akin to a new pair of shoes.  OK, that’s taking a little too far – new shoes are pretty awesome.  Maybe closer to trying a new hair product?  Exciting and full of promise, […]

Healthy Spinach Artichoke Dip

June 30, 2011

There’s one appetizer that, if all else fails, we WILL order at a restaurant:  spinach artichoke dip. Hey, it’s what we do.  We look at other options and then go with the one that we know we’ll both love and consume way too much of.  What’s wrong with that?  Nothing.  Nothing at all.   However, […]
