If there’s one food I could eat pretty much every day, it’s Mexican. I just love it! Tim didn’t much care for it when we first started dating, but he’s seen the light since he’s been with me. ūüėČ I first got the idea for this casserole from a Hungry Girl recipe. It seemed pretty […]

Grilled Zucchini and Bell Peppers

My philosophy about grilling is that if we’re going to take the time to fire up our charcoal grill, I am going to take full advantage of it. ¬†These grilled vegetables ¬†are fresh, healthy, quick, and easy. ¬†They’re also very colorful. ¬†I’ve heard you should eat five colors every day, and some even say five […]

Southwest Skillet Scramble

On weekends, Tim and I like to put together different variations of skillet scrambles using different meats, veggies, and cheeses. ¬†They are so quick and easy, made all in one pan, and you can make them millions of different ways. ¬†Tim loves eggs, so he’d eat them any which way. ¬†I decided to put something […]

A Meal Fit For a Birthday

I mentioned in a previous post (about a certain delicious oatmeal cake) that my mom recently had a birthday. ¬†We all went down to my parents’ house and spent the weekend there to celebrate. ¬†Tim, my sister-in-law, Jill, and I cooked my mom a super special birthday lunch. ¬†Since I was deemed the project manager, […]

Salsa Stoup with Avocado Smash and Whole Wheat Quesadillas

Is there a 12 step program for soup? ¬†Because if there is, I should probably sign up. ¬†I’ve made more soup this winter than any other winter I can remember. ¬†I even created a soup chock full of vegetables and then got crazy one day and added pesto to it. ¬†It. was. delicious. ¬†I’ll definitely […]
