Mission Sandwichon

Two years ago, the Mister and I went on a mission trip to Katira, Costa Rica. It was an amazing, life-changing experience. You can read about that here. This summer, our church is going on mission to Peru, but sadly, we won’t be on that trip. We have lots of things going on in lifeRead more

Spicy Garlic Chicken Thighs

For the past 21 weeks the Mister and I have spent our date nights going out to have a meal, and then coming home to record an episode for our podcast, So This Is Love.  This week we just couldn’t fit it in the budget to hit up a place where we could eat somethingRead more

Paleo Recipe Round-up

I’ve had a few requests for a round-up of my paleo recipes so that they are a little easier to find on my website. I know it will definitely help ME to be able to just share one link to them all. I’ll continue to add to this list as I add recipes to theRead more

Hearty Taco Pie for a billion

One day last year at TJ Maxx (my favorite store), I came upon this absolutely BEAUTIFUL 15 inch cast iron skillet. It was $29.99 and I couldn’t pass it up. The price and the size made it so hard to walk away from. This pan normally goes for upwards of $70.  A couple of weeksRead more

Enchiladas Suizas

For most of my life I was a very picky eater. My meals consisted of mostly American fast food and whatever my mom, grandma and aunt made from the Mexican food genre. That mostly consisted of rice, beans, fideo, tortillas (flour & corn), picadillo (ground beef with potatoes) and variations on all of those things. OneRead more

Perfect Timing, Perfect Peace

  There are hardly enough hours in the day lately. Anybody else feel me? I haven’t posted any new recipes or even hardly any pictures because my schedule is jam packed. I get up in the morning, get ready for work, pack mine and the Mister’s lunch, go to work, fulfill my evening ministry stuff,Read more

#FindItAtTarget Voxbox: Carol’s Daughter

I am a part of this super neat program called Influenster and last month they sent me the #FindItAtTarget Voxbox. This box included one item that could be found at Target. I was sent a Black Vanilla Hair Smoothie by Carol’s Daughter. It was sent to me for free by Influenster. It is basically a deepRead more

Carnival of Bow Ties Pasta

I am very embarrassed to talk about this but my pantry is in a very, very sad state. It’s actually my least favorite space of the house. I really have no idea what my pantry houses. It does not have a light in it and I think that’s the biggest problem. A problem that needsRead more

Cauliflower Tarts

Cauliflower is The Mister’s “arch nemesis. . . the bane of his existence” but as for me and my house we will still eat the cauliflower. We made a deal because of something that went down a couple months back. He MUST eat the cauliflower if I serve it to him. It doesn’t mean heRead more

Cauliflower Steaks & Other Roasted Veggies

Today is the first time I have felt like myself in 4 days. I’ve hardly left my bedroom and hardly eaten anything. I’m pretty sure that no matter what my doctor said, I’ve had strep. When you lie around all day and night crying because you can’t swallow anything, not even your own spit, thereRead more
