Zucchini Boats

Zucchini Boats

Made this for dinner last night and they were a huge hit! 1. They are “boats” how cool is it to get to eat a boat and steer it all around your plate while eating and 2. I told my kids it was basically pizza in a boat (back to point 1 on the boat)…

Green Beans with Tomato and Feta

Green Beans with Tomato and Feta

Whip this up based on what I had on hand was not at all intending to create something blog worthy, but it was delicious! My kids loved it and begged me to make it again the next night. My husband was disappointed he was missing out (seriously the point was since my husband wasn’t home…

Cabbage and Sausage Skillet

I was inspired to create this dish after looking through recipes for cabbage and seeing lots of cabbage roll recipes. I love cabbage rolls, but honestly find them a bit tedious. Plus honestly I think they are a little lacking in cabbage volume… lol, I love my cabbage! So this dish is a simpler, one…

Irish Stout Braised Cabbage

Beer Braised Cabbage

St. Patrick’s Day is coming up soon! This Irish Stout Braised Cabbage is a perfect dish to celebrate with. I love cabbage and I love a good Irish stout, the two are meant to be! We have dabbled in brewing our own beer, so much fun! I’m honestly not a huge beer fan, very picky,…

Mushroom Stroganoff

Mushroom Stroganoff

I love stroganoff and I don’t know why but before the other night I hadn’t made it in a very long time, it used to be a regular early in my marriage and I *think* one of the first sauces I learned on my own to make from scratch rather than using a flavor packet…

Mushroom and Spinach on Toasted Bread

Mushroom and Spinach Toasted Bread

So, I love mushrooms and I really love sauteed mushrooms. I saw an episode of Kitchen Nightmare’s one time (I think this was on the British version) and one of the dishes was mushrooms on toast, all I could think was YUM! It has been a favorite of mine since then. Sadly my husband does…

Cilantro Lime Coleslaw

Cilantro Lime Coleslaw

This recipe is so simple and so easy, it’s barely a recipe. I kind of whipped it up without much thought one night and it was delicious! I was just looking for a quick, easy, refreshing side to go with dinner using up some cabbage I had on hand. As soon as I tried it…

Orange Ginger Glazed Carrots

Orange Ginger Carrots

So, my husband HATES and I mean HATES cooked carrots. While he still doesn’t love this recipe it is one of the very few (possible only) cooked carrot recipe he can stomach. So to me that’s a win! 😀 It’s nice and easy and simple. It makes a great side dish to so many meals….

Winter Squash and Kale Au Gratin

Squash and Kale Gratin

This is like the perfect fall gratin! So full of delicious fall flavors. I typically make it with butternut squash, but this past time (when I took that picture) I had half a kabocha squash in my fridge and I am so glad I used that! Every time I have kabocha squash I remind myself…

Roasted Brussels Sprout Stalk

Roasted Brussels Sprouts Stalk

Yum! I LOVE Brussels sprouts and they are so good for you too! Little powerhouses of nutrients! Both youngest loves them too, the other one not so much, however this recipe had both my kids asking for seconds before even touching the rest of their dinner! There is something that is just fun about roasting…
