There's a crisp chill in the air. I can hear the leaves bristling in the wind. Pumpkin spice creamer fills my cup of coffee to the brim. It's officially fall in Oklahoma and it sure feels like it, too. A cold front blew through last night and covered Oklahoma in a thick, humidity-lacking cool temperature… Continue reading Chicken Pot Pie Gnocchi
It's one of those days where I had to drag myself out of bed. I'm not feeling great, and snoozing my alarm four times didn't help matters much at all. I'm trying to get this coffee to perk me up now so I can go on about my day with a clear mind. Here's hoping… Continue reading Asian Chicken Noodle Soup
Meatball cravings are real, y'all. So are pizza, sugar, and taco cravings. Thankfully, I can eat all the meatballs I want on keto---so long as I nix the breadcrumbs. The best binding-ingredients to toss in keto meatballs is either almond flour or crushed pork rinds. I typically do almond flour if the meatballs are made… Continue reading Meatball Marsala
Who need chicken noodle soup when you can make it better? And I mean MUCH better. Season chicken in Greek seasoning and cook this soup with orzo, sun-dried tomatoes, capers, and kalamata olives. Soup has never tasted better!

There's nothing worse than preparing a recipe and finding out you have to use 10 different pots, pans, bowls, and plates. Where's the fun in that?! You'll spend the rest of your evening doing dishes instead… Continue reading Chicken & Veggie Skillet Dinner
Today is DAY ONE of my annual Memorial Weekend Cleaning Extravaganza!!!! I don't think it's normal to be excited about cleaning, so I'll tone down the elation a bit while I explain...Since I work in an industry that doesn't recognize well, any major holiday, Memorial Day weekend means nothing to me. I don't think I've… Continue reading Skillet Chicken with Tomatoes, Peas and Mushrooms
One of my favorite random holidays, Cinco de Mayo, is tomorrow. Do you celebrate this holiday? I do. I love the Mexican culture---and most importantly, the Mexican cuisine. I made this delicious carnitas recipe this weekend for when my stepdad was in town. It filled my house with sinful aromas, and my stepdad devoured it… Continue reading Carnitas with Orzo & Peppers
