Chicken Nacho Soup {Crockpot}

A lot of people have asked me recently why I haven’t been blogging as much, or why I didn’t blog this summer. I would like to say that it was because I was too busy going out, having fun and enjoying the summer. That unfortunately, isn’t true.

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?)

{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

Good morning, ya’ll! It’s another beautiful brisk Minnesota Saturday morning which means that I have warm food on my mind.
