Shrimp & “Grits”

I love shrimp and grits, but not nearly as much as my husband. He is the shrimp and grits connoisseur. Since February, we’ve been following a Paleo diet, meaning no grits in sight. Even if you aren’t Paleo, this recipe is delicious and guilt free! Now you can enjoy this southern staple without the heaviness…

“Chorizo” and Plantain Hash with Eggs

Happy Monday, everyone! This weekend I got 2 new cookbooks and the first recipe that jumped out at me was a breakfast hash. What’s not to like, right? It calls for homemade chorizo with a recipe included. It doesn’t really taste anything like any chorizo I’ve ever had, however, it tastes DELICIOUS and I gobbled…

Chicken, Broccoli, & Apple Salad

The first time I heard of this salad was from a pre-packaged meal delivery service I had ordered from. It seemed like a weird combination and I was hesitant to try it. As soon as I took my first bite, I knew I had to recreate it. It’s my new favorite salad.  This dish is…

Mushroom Quiche with Fontina and Shallots

Eggs are unequivocally my favorite food. They are so versatile and so delicious. My husband makes a mean over easy egg which I am partial to, but any way you serve them – sign me up! Quiche is so comforting and perfect for any occasion. This recipe is my go to. I’ve been making it…

Asian Meatballs

I love Asian food. It’s one cuisine that I never tire of and always am in the food for noodles, wontons, dumplings, etc. I’ve made dumplings before and they were great, but I’ll admit it isn’t something you just put together on a week night. They are time consuming and in all honesty – who…

Garlic Herb Chicken

Quick and easy : two qualities you definitely want in dinner, right? Look no further.

Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken

I’ve been trying to shop a little more frugally lately, and I kept reading that chicken thighs are a great way to have flavorful chicken for a fraction of the cost. Off to the store I went, and thighs I found. Now what?

Chicken Skewers with Zucchini Hummus

On any given day, I devote a pretty good chunk of time to scouring the internet for recipes, ideas for recipes, or ways to make old recipes better. Most of the time I find a recipe that I like, but don’t love, so I tweak it until I do. That isn’t the case here. I…

Proper Sunday Dinner

Does anyone have proper Sunday dinners anymore? Our worlds seem so fast paced that I often wonder if any night of the week includes a proper sit-down dinner where everyone is at the table at the same time without distraction. I’m guilty of eating on the run but I am really trying to shift the…
