Spicy Asian Zucchini (10 Minute Side Dish)

This Spicy Asian Zucchini can be whipped up in 10 minutes and makes a great summer side dish.  I firmly believe there is a direct correlation between the amount of zucchini we have available to us, and how excited I am to use it. At the beginning of the season when the first small zucchinis show [...]

Easy Shakshuka (Gluten Free)

Easy Shakshuka (Gluten Free) thumbnail

Gluten free and vegetarian, this spicy Shakshuka recipe is a satisfying one pot meal for any time of year. This shakshuka has been a long time coming. I've been drooling over other blogger's shakshukas for months. Uh, I just read that last sentence aloud and realized it sounds waaaay creepier written out than it did [...]

Chipotle Shrimp Sandwiches with Jalapeno Peach Salsa and Avocado Mayo

Chipotle Shrimp Sandwiches with Jalapeno Peach Salsa and Avocado Mayo thumbnail

Smoky chipotle shrimp sandwiched between layers of cool avocado mayo and sweet and spicy jalapeno peach salsa make the ultimate summer sandwich.  When I was a kid, shrimp came in two forms: covered in butter and garlic or fried to a crispy crunch and plunged into cocktail sauce. It wasn't until adulthood I discovered shrimp had [...]

S’more Cake Pops (Guest Post for Wallflour Girl) thumbnail

These S'more Cake Pops made with marshmallow creme, dipped in chocolate, and rolled in crushed grahams are the ultimate bite sized snack. These days, I hear a lot of people lamenting about how technology is destroying authentic relationships. And I'm one of those people. We're hyper-connected to thousands of people through social media, yet have [...]

One Skillet Tilapia in Burst Tomato Wine Broth

One Skillet Tilapia in Burst Tomato Wine Broth thumbnail

I have a confession to make. Despite the Mr. and I's deep love for seafood (as evidenced by our choice in vacation spots), I rarely make it at home. I know, I know. I don't know what my problem is. The truth is, I've always been a bit intimidated by seafood. It seemed finicky, difficult to [...]

Loaded Mediterranean Sweet Potato Fries with Tzatziki Sauce #ChooseDreams #WeekdaySupper

This healthier take on loaded fries features crispy sweet potato fries piled high with ground turkey, tzatziki, and feta cheese! In my mind, it doesn't get any more comforting (or tempting) than a giant pile of loaded fries. You know those stands you find at summer festivals with big bold letters spelling "LOADED FRIES?" Yeah, [...]

This easy Tortellini Salad combines all the robust flavors of a classic antipasto appetizer. A great side dish for summer BBQs!

Glorious, warm Strawberry Cobbler studded with chocolate chips (AKA: My birthday dessert of choice). Soooo...it's my birthday. I'll admit, birthdays are getting kind of weird for me now. I mean, 27.

Red, White, and Blue Berry Angel Food Cake Parfaits #SundaySupper

Red, White, and Blue Berry Angel Food Cake Parfaits #SundaySupper thumbnail

"All I want to do is eat berries and Cool Whip and angel food cake all summer long." --Direct quote from the Mr. as he gobbled down these parfaits with a glint in his eye and a teensy dollop of whipped cream on his upper lip. You know? I have to agree with him on this one. [...]

These Red, White, and Blue White Chocolate Pudding Pops are a cinch to throw together and perfect for Fourth of July parties!

This comforting Enchilada Lasagna comes together in a single skillet and is packed with veggies and Tex-Mex flavor. Way back in the day when the Mr. and I were newlyweds inhabiting a 900 square foot apartment with the narrowest galley kitchen you've ever seen, I made my first skillet lasagna. Making a regular lasagna in [...]
