Quick Pickled Carrots with Garlic and Dill

July 28, 2014

This week I bought the GIANT bag of carrots at Costco and brought them home only to remember that we didn’t bring our BlendTec to Montana. Hmm, what to do with all the carrots? Then I remembered making garlicky pickled carrots a few years ago and instantly had a craving for them. I whipped these […]

The Mini Frittata

May 7, 2014

I love making frittatas. A little too much apparently, because my family seems to be tired of them. So I started making mini frittatas, just for me. I eat two slices and save two slices for the next day. Perfect! Just like regular frittatas, you can make this any way you like with whatever you […]

Simple Fish Tacos

April 7, 2014

Last week I promised you the recipe for simple fish tacos Leila requested on her birthday. I make these all the time, and the kids go crazy for them. I think part of the reason is because the fish, while delicious, is also mild in flavor (and not “fishy” at all). The other reason is […]

Yesterday we celebrated Leila’s 5th birthday with fish tacos and strawberry vanilla cake. She loved the fish tacos, but she may have been even more excited about the cake.

5 Tasty Ways to Jazz up Your Popcorn

November 5, 2013

Fall is my favorite.  I love curling up on the couch with my sweetheart to share a bowl of popcorn, a bottle of Pinot, and an episode of Parenthood.  We typically go for a little coconut oil and nooch (nutritional yeast) on our corn, but sometimes it’s fun to switch it up. I headed to […]

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 […]

Perfectly Crispy Oven Fries

September 23, 2013

Last week I was really craving some good french fries.  In the past when I’ve tried to make them at home, my oven fries have either come out sad and floppy or burnt to a crisp.  I was determined this time to make a batch of fries that didn’t suck. The keys to success turned […]
