Italian Chicken Sausage Soup

Red Wine Beef Stew + Mashed Potatoes

I was going to share another taco recipe in honor of today – you know, #tacotuesday. But I think I’m being a little bit of a one tricky pony over here, so I thought I better switch it up and post at least ONE non-taco recipe before I post more taco recipes. This one is… Continue reading Red Wine Beef Stew + Mashed Potatoes

Shepherd’s Pie (did I spell that right?)

IT’S SO COLD. Winter is the worst. Seriously, the worst. It’s like they try to trick you into thinking it’s great because of the holidays and all, but really that’s just a couple of fun days of distraction in the midst of a whole bunch of nose-hairs-frozen-solid kind of days. I keep wondering if it… Continue reading Shepherd’s Pie (did I spell that right?)

Crockpot Pot Roast with Mashed Potatoes

It is a gloomy, rainy Sunday here in Minnesota. There is something just so comforting about Crockpot meals on rainy days. Put the food in the pot, then sit back and relax with some TV while the crockpot does all the work! That’s my kind of meal prep day!

Crockpot Sweet Potato Shepherd’s Pie (Kind Of)

It’s been a while since I posted, 24 days to be exact and I wish I could say I have been off exploring the world, or doing something super exciting. But I haven’t. I’ve been working. A lot. Like 6 days a week a lot. Working out, a little (3 – 4 times per week;… Continue reading Crockpot Sweet Potato Shepherd’s Pie (Kind Of)

{GF} Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup

I was hoping that I would come back from Santa Fe with loads of healthy-eating travel tips to share – but the truth is, I was way under prepared and as a result, didn’t stick to my healthy eating. I paid the price for it with a really sick belly and learned some lessons. Bring… Continue reading {GF} Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup
