Roasted Sweet Potato Salad

There's just something about sweet potatoes. I'm guessing it's the carby one-two punch. First, you get a potato. Second, you inject it with sugar. How could anything go wrong?! I've been going to town on some sweet potatoes lately. Tomorrow is our work Thanksgiving potluck, and guess what I'm bringing? Yep: sweet potatoes. My favorite… Continue reading Roasted Sweet Potato Salad

I've really started to enjoy shepherd's pie for dinner, though. I made… Continue reading Turkey & Sweet Potato Shepherd’s Pie

I've got pearl couscous I need to use, about a cup of quinoa left, and some semolina flour I have no idea what to do with. Such is the life of a random foodie. I get inspired by a recipe and I… Continue reading Wild Rice Pilaf with Sweet Potato & Mushrooms

Chicken & Veggie Skillet Dinner

Sometimes, all you want for dinner is something that you can make with one pan and one pan only. 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
