Easy Recipe: Indian-Spiced Chicken

November 18, 2013

I used to cook with the kids at least a few times a week.  They would strap on their aprons and we would have the best time stirring, tasting, smelling, and spilling.  But somewhere along the way, life got too busy.  Dinners became rushed, and when the kids asked to help I would say no. […]

Paleo Turkey Crockpot Chili

October 27, 2013

My kids are in Pre-K and 1st Grade, and already we are feeling the tug of a go-go-go lifestyle.  Between soccer, baseball, school functions, and church, sometimes it feels like we never stop moving.  What will it be like when they’re a little older and want to add music, dance, and other sports into the […]

5 Crockpot Chili Recipes

October 11, 2013

I’m pretty sure everyone in Phoenix made chili for dinner last night. We had a refreshing cold front blow through and my Instagram feed filled up with friends sporting scarves and proclaiming anything under 70 degrees to be chili weather.

Easy Turkey Chili

September 9, 2013

It’s pouring rain right now.  POURING.  We keep looking out the window, mouths wide open, “It’s still raining.  Can you believe it?  It’s still raining!” Rain means a break from the heat. Rain means a preview of fall temperatures. Rain means chili. This is an older recipe, which means I haven’t updated it for our […]

Penne Pasta with Grilled Eggplant and Zucchini

July 30, 2013

Joe starts first grade tomorrow. At 7:20. A.M. Have I mentioned I’m not a morning person?  Summer for us consists of baseball games and midnight bed times.  The transition isn’t going to be easy.  Knowing the lazy days of summer were coming to an end sent me on a grocery shopping spree, stocking up on […]

Coconutty Turkey Nuggets with Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

May 16, 2013

I can’t take credit for these tasty nuggets.  My mom made a batch and sent a container home with me a few weeks ago. They were for the kids. I ate them all. Oops.   I thought I should make it up to them, so I made a batch.  Then another.  Then another.  We have […]

Pizza night is back! {Recipe for GF Pizza Crust and a GIVEAWAY}

May 13, 2013

{Giveaway has now ended. You can find the recipe at the bottom of the post.} One thing I’ve missed since going gluten-free is pizza night.  Oh sure, we’ve had a few pizza nights using frozen gluten-free crusts, but it’s SO not the same as homemade.  And it’s not nearly as much fun either, especially for […]

Chicken Curry in a Hurry

April 23, 2013

I don’t know why, but I always seem to forget about how quick and easy it is to make a pot of chicken curry.  Or shrimp curry.  Or whatever-you-want-to-throw-in-the-pot curry.  This is something I should make more often because not only is it quick and versatile, but my family gobbles it up every time.
