Simple French Toast

Welcome to the new site!! It has been a long time coming and I still have a lot of work to do, but I’m excited to finally have things (mostly) up and running. I am even more happy to finally feeling up to being back in the kitchen after a few years of being pregnantContinue reading “Simple French Toast”

Thai Quinoa Salad

Hey y’all! It has been a while since I have posted a recipe on the blog. With the baby becoming more mobile and curious every day, she keeps my hands completely tied up during the day. And now that she is eating table food, a lot of my meal prep is focused on her. WithContinue reading “Thai Quinoa Salad”

Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Chicken

Sharing my extremely simple, yet delicious salsa verde chicken! This dish is a breeze and can be used for tacos, salads, enchiladas, grain bowls or however you’re craving it. This is a go-to in our house, especially during a busy week because it is easy and the left over are just a yummy!

Christmas Table {2018}

For this Christmas table I wanted to do something colorful! I love the traditional red and white, but I thought there was something so cheerful with using fresh fruit and greenery. The boxwoods on the plates are actually mini wreaths, which I usually have on our lamps this time of year. I always love aContinue reading “Christmas Table {2018}”

Blueberry Naan Appetizer

This is going to be my new go-to appetizer. Super easy and relatively quick. I found this recipe from Kitchen Confidante (recipe linked HERE) and my mouth started watering immediately. It is best served warmed/immediately, so I would recommend this recipe if you are hosting! I made it and took it to someone’s house forContinue reading “Blueberry Naan Appetizer”

Turkey Cashew Stir Fry

Happy Monday!! I made this dish last week and it will definitely be on repeat. I am going to keep this short and sweet because Chapman is about to wake up from her nap and I have been trying to get this recipe posted for dayyyssss. I wasn’t quite sure how this was going to turn out because I was playing around with portioning out the flavoring, but it was delicious!! I did rely on my mom hack and used the frozen cubes of minced garlic, ginger and basil– THEY SAVE SO MUCH TIME!! If you follow me on instagram you know I recently found them at another grocery store other than trader joe’s, so look in the freezer section at your local store. Those little cubes are life changing in the kitchen!! I also tried to be very mindful of the sodium added to this dish. Asian inspired recipes can come with a lot of sodium, which is usually why they are so addicting. But this recipe is seriously delicious without all the excessive salt. Take a look… 

Goat Cheese Berry Crostinis

It was overcast and breezy this weekend, so we did a lot of work around the house! This is our first time owning a house and we are enjoying all the house/yard work on the weekends. I’m sure it will get old fast, but for now we have fun working in the yard together. We got some twinkle lights put up after several attempts that failed! We resorted to 10 foot 4×4 wood polls and concrete. Yup, we got serious about it. And Daniel has been working on building us a table and bench for the back deck and it turned out so beautiful! I am beyond impressed, especially since this was his first time to do anything like this. You can see the top of the table in the picture above… isn’t it gorgeous?! Take a look at this simple recipe for these berry crostinis…
