Crispy Slow Cooker Cornish Game Hen

When it comes to cooking meat in my house, it’s a constant battle.  I don’t like pork and Zach doesn’t like lamb.  I don’t care for ground beef and he won’t eat meat with bones.  And we both hate everything about fish/seafood.  I am told often that I’m much too picky but let me tell…

Stuffed Pork Chops

As with many foods out there in the big wide grocery store, pork is one of those things that I just don’t get along with or care for.  But with time and the need for something different, I’ve been slowly adding things into my kitchen that I normally wouldn’t eat.  Things like spinach and turkey. …

Stuffed Chiles

Let’s talk stuffed peppers.  Stuffed bell peppers are a huge hit in the “eating healthy” community.  It serves as a dish for anything you could possibly want to put in it.  It can really be a pretty dish and it’s super healthy for you (depending on the stuffing!).  I have made stuffed bell peppers a…

Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

  Living in Phoenix usually means a warmer winter than what I’m used to experiencing.  We used to live up in Flagstaff with all that snow and one digit temperatures!  But no matter where we are, the chilly weather inspires warm dishes that really hit the spot!  This year we had an exceptionally short winter…

Mediterranean Chicken and Couscous

Growing up, I had the pleasure of eating a few dishes from all around the world.  Some of my fondest memories are of Indian food.  My mother makes a mean Moroccan dish that is to die for and that is where I was introduced to couscous. Now, I know a lot of people who are…

Coconut Thai Curry

I’ve recently gone back to school and that means my time in the kitchen has just disappeared.  No more hours of food prep, no more playing with recipe after recipe after recipe.  I have had to find creative ways to cook food that is quick, easy, healthy, and most importantly, delicious!  Here comes my pressure…

Chicken with Fire Roasted Tomatoes

It’s a lazy Saturday afternoon and its lunch time.  I walk to the kitchen, put my hands on my hips and realize… It’s past grocery day and I don’t want to go out to shop just to make lunch!  Now it boils down to ramen, a can of soup or get crazy and whip something…

Spinach and Ricotta Lasagna Rolls

In my journey to get healthy and eat healthy, I decided to revamp some of my recipes and this will be the first!  I love lasagna but for two people, a whole lasagna is just too much!  So I decided to go with little serving sized rolls that are easy to portion out instead of…

Onion and Herb Squash

Being a picky eater can get old very quickly. My boyfriend and I are the pickiest of picky when it comes to a lot of different foods. Luckily we agree on most things but there are a handful of items that he just can’t stand but I absolutely love. Enter squash into the equation. I…

Baked Taco Salad Shells

If anyone has EVER read this blog, you should all know how much I love Mexican food!  And let me tell you, taco salads are no exception!  (although I make mine more on the unhealthy side versus a REAL taco SALAD.)  It essentially turns into a huuuuuuuuge tostada!  Anywho, to make them a touch healthier,…

Mom’s Texas Sheet Cake

My mother told me the story of how we came into the possession of this recipe.  It’s pretty neat actually.  A lady called up my grandmother and asked if it would be okay to bring a cake to my parent’s reception.  My grandmother agreed and so this kind lady brought a Texas sheet cake to…
