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

Sweet Basil Citrus Water

Summer isn’t even here yet and it’s been 90 degrees by 10AM. I love the sun but the humidity around here kills me. I’ve joined a Saturday morning walking small group and walked 2.5 miles this past Saturday. After my walk, I realized how dehydrated I was even though I’ve been drinking 96-112oz of waterRead more

Summer Salad Blend

With all this HOT weather my household has been eating more and more salad. It’s easy to put together, it’s fresh, it’s crisp and everyone gets to choose what they want to add to it. I started buying “mixed” salads and slaws at first but then I realized that I could make my own salad blendRead more

Marry Me Macaroni

Yesterday, around 2PM, I got a craving for macaroni and cheese. I haven’t had macaroni and cheese in a very long time. As much cheese as there is in this recipe I won’t have it again for awhile either but when you’re craving something, it’s best just to give in! This is definitely comfort food!Read more
