Save Yourself Sometime To Go Smoothies

A few weeks ago I posted some pictures on Instagram of to go smoothies I whipped up and a lot of people have been asking me about them so I thought why not write a blog post? I haven’t written a cooking related post in a while so this was a great excuse to get back to it. I have had a lot of early days lately so I thought about experimenting with frozen homemade smoothies. I got some [...]

Cream of Corn + Pea Soup, Yum!

I have to say that this was a pretty successful first attempt at making soup completely from scratch. In my normal fashion I didn’t follow a recipe, just experimented and came up with a great new easy, fast recipe. As with all of my other recipes I say use the ingredients to your preferred taste, for example I only like a little bit of salt but you might like a lot (but don’t over do [...]

Loaded White Chicken Chili

I came across this recipe about a week ago on Pinterest and it looked delicious! I immediately started thinking about ingredients I could add to make it my own. Only a portion of these ingredients were in the original recipe. If you have read my cooking posts in the past you know I don’t normally measure anything out and just go with taste, however I did end up having specific measurements for [...]

Experiment: Cauliflower Pizza Crust

(Originally posted August 23, 2014) Outcome first time around Over the past few weeks I have been experimenting with making Cauliflower Pizza Crust (low carb). It definitely takes some experimenting to get it right. The first time around I forgot to put the egg in and the crust fell apart (it was still good enough to eat as a snack). My friend and I came out with two semi-successful crusts that [...]

Garlic Roasted Chicken + Potatoes + Veggies

(Originally posted June 24, 2014) Tonight I thawed out some chicken thigh quarters and was looking through the fridge at what I had. I came up with a new chicken + veggie/potato  + marinade combination that I really liked and wanted to share with all of you. It would probably be a good idea to cook the vegetables and potatoes in a separate dish than the chicken, I found that the oil getting [...]

Mexican Pizza With A Twist

(Originally posted June 18, 2014) A few days ago I was in the midst of one of my meatless days and was in search of something to eat for dinner. I opened the fridge and grabbed some random stuff and low and behold it turned out to be a really delicious combination and has now become one of my favorite go to recipes for meatless days. I have eaten this “Mexican Pizza With A Twist” everyday [...]

Spice Up Your Egg Salad Sandwich

(Originally posted April 2, 2014) I don’t know about you, but egg salad sandwiches are one of my favorite go to lunches. I grew up with the simple egg salad of hard boiled eggs and Mayonaise, but a few years ago I decided I’d start spicing it up and trying new things. AT this point I have a pretty standard list of ingredients I like to add in, but as always you can experiment with things you [...]

Fun Burrito and More…

(Originally posted March 5, 2014) A few nights ago I could of sworn there was some tomato soup in the drawer, went to make it and low and behold, no tomato soup. I found myself, as I so often do not knowing what to cook. When I saw a can of black beans (ding, ding, ding, a lightbulb went off in my head). This is a recipe my Mom showed me years ago and I have always used it as quick go to meal [...]

Quick Tip: Healthy Eats

(Originally posted February 6, 2014) Last night I had a sudden craving for some veggie stir fry. I was going through the fridge to see what I had (because if you are a reader of this blog you know I don’t do “recipes”) and out came this amazing combination of veggies and spices that my family just devoured on the spot (hence the reason there is no photo to go along with this post).
