You know the great thing about a holiday weekend? Today is Monday, and it doesn’t suck.  All day today, I thought it was Sunday. This is partially because I worked on Saturday, so instead of three days off I have had two. But I’m cool with it because when I go back to work tomorrow,… Continue reading Fiesta Taco Chili

Jambalaya/Gumbo

  Bravo, husband. Bravo.  Another fantastic suggestion that resulted in another delicious recipe.  He really is the brains behind this operation, you know.

The Perfect Oven Baked Burger

The burger Gods are smiling down.  I don’t know why I wasted so much time trying to cook burgers on the stove top. Seriously. Now, I know there’s people out there that think it’s a tragedy to cook a burger anywhere other than a grill. I understand that. I agree. There’s nothing like a juicy… Continue reading The Perfect Oven Baked Burger

Coconut Chicken Nuggets

When I first posted a photo of this recipe on Facebook, I called it “Coconut Crush Chicken Nuggets,” because “Coconut Flour Chicken Nuggets” just didn’t have the same excitement about it. And, I’m all about the marketing, you know? But, I realize now that Coconut Crush doesn’t really make sense. And it doesn’t mean anything.… Continue reading Coconut Chicken Nuggets
