Home-Ish Made Pizzas

I would often times describe myself as a culinary hack. I take good stuff from a lot of places and put it together. I think that’s a form of creativity but you’re definitely not going to find me tinkering endlessly with a recipe to get it “perfect”. I have a …

Roasted Red Potatoes

That pair of earrings that seems to go with every outfit? The sandals that morph into something that “just works” almost every day? This recipe is that side dish. That one that you go back to over and over again. The one that you throw next to Roasted Chicken or …

Gim’me Some Green Beans

This recipe has evolved a bit from when I first began making the dish but one thing has remained: there are never any leftovers. This is the vegetable of choice for my family with nearly every type of main imaginable. It’s versatile and delicious and most important – EASY. Your …

Beef Bone Broth

One of the best things I’ve started doing for myself in the last few years is making my own broths. The first (and favorite) is Beef Broth. This stuff is packed with trace minerals, collagen and cartilage that our bodies crave and that we just don’t get enough of in …

Homestyle Baked Barley

Barley: one of the most underestimated grains. This guy goes head to head with rice in most cases and has almost a creaminess to it that comes out of nowhere. I love using this baked barley as a side or even main in any situation that requires comfort food. Personally, …

Growing up, my mom used to make Hamburger Helper from time to time. I remember loving it but always feeling sick after I ate it. When I discovered this little turkey trick, I set out to make my own, cleaner version of this childhood favorite by combining this recipe with …

Deserted Island Tacos

Can we chat briefly about tacos? They are on my “If you were on a deserted island and had to pick only three foods to eat for the rest of your life, what would they be?” list. If the cleanup were less catastrophic, I would make tacos every. Blessed. Day. …

The Beans

There is not even a recipe card for these because you can literally fit all these words and the ugly pic in a screen shot. Hey, they don’t have to look good, they just have to taste good. I’m for real. Dump 3 cups rinsed pintos in the crock pot. …

Next Level Guacamole

Guacamole is basically health food. Think about it. It’s green – which means it has to be healthy. Joking aside, it actually IS health food. Avocados are an insane source of Omegas and great fats. This is a guilt-free indulgence that you can really feel good about. It takes just …

Next Level Margarita

Tequila and I are old friends. The kind where you may not see each other for months or years but as soon as you do, you’re connecting immediately and picking up right where you left off. I’ve found in my life that as I’ve grown up, my ability to purchase …
