Some of the best green beans you'll ever taste in your life are the ones that are pan-fried with bacon. It's a classic green bean recipe that most everyone knows. Bacon, onion, and green beans all come together for the perfect side dish. But what if you could make a version of that...but better? That's… Continue reading Country Ranch Green Beans & Potatoes
Every Sunday I meal prep for the week ahead. I make two meals for my husband to take to work for lunch, then a few meals for dinners throughout the week (plus snacks and salads when I decide to make them). I've been experimenting with what my husband will eat for lunch because I want… Continue reading Sweet Thai Chili Stir-Fry
This recipe was originally going to have chicken in it, to make it different from a traditional Nicoise salad. But alas, the forgetful grocery shopper strikes again. It doesn't matter how detailed my list is when I go to the supermarket---I will always forget something. I'm usually able to get my husband to pick it… Continue reading Simple Nicoise Salad
There are very few meals that I make more than once. It's not that I don't like what I'm making, it's just that I'm constantly having to make new things so I can blog about it.

A true clean-out-your-kitchen type meal. Use leftover chicken or turkey if you wish for this stir-fry that also includes roasted green beans, cabbage, carrots, and everyone's favorite: BACON.

They've also got roasted garlic cloves, marinated mushrooms (personal fave), and sometimes dolmas. I'm now slightly obsessed with that olive… Continue reading Green Bean Salad with Hearts of Palm
Have you tried the new extra toasty Cheez-Its? They're life changing. Incredible. A gift from the Gods. I've always been that weirdo that like slightly-less-than-ideal crisps. I like the brown (or green) potato chips. I eat the burnt cheese crusted onto pans when making oven nachos. I'm a sucker for broken cookies. These browned cheesy… Continue reading Barley & Chicken Casserole
Hello again! A lot has happened in my brief hiatus from blogging. We've got a lot of ground to cover, so let's dive in, shall we? First off...I got married! This might not come as a surprise to some of you, as I've been talking about it for a while now. The wedding went off… Continue reading Grilled Rasta Pasta
