Steak Bites

After being stuck in our home for months, we are finally returning to some feeling of normal here in Minnesota. We are now allowed to go out to eat! Last week, I reunited with two work friends/coworkers whose faces I have only seen on video for months!  I have always been a pretty introverted person… Continue reading Steak Bites

Italian Chicken Sausage Soup

This post is dedicated to two of this blog’s biggest supporters; Don + Denise. I once posted this video on facebook with the caption “I wish someone would make this for me!” https://www.facebook.com/buzzfeedtasty/videos/1843817115870929/ A couple of days later, we got a text from Denise that said they were on their way over to drop off… Continue reading Italian Chicken Sausage Soup

One-Pot-Rice & Burrito Bowls!

Let me tell you about my current obsession. My current obsession (besides buying iphone cases that I don’t need) is one-pot rice meals. Holy crap. Why didn’t I think of this before?  I have wasted so much time mixing things with rice after cooking it all separately! I looked at a recipe last weekend for… Continue reading One-Pot-Rice & Burrito Bowls!

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

Summer Squash Goulash

The best thing about zucchini is its versatility. Summer squash is in the same boat. They both taste so salty and delicious, they make great additions to any meal and excellent substitutes for noodles. My only complaint? Because there always has to be one…. TOO MUCH WATER! I absolutely hate that even if I sweat… Continue reading Summer Squash Goulash

Italian Sausage + Kale Soup

When I was still little but old enough to make my own plates at family gatherings, I would always pile my plate high. Everything looked so delicious. I could surely fit it all in my stomach, couldn’t it? Well, each and every time, I would take my barely touched plate over to my dad who… Continue reading Italian Sausage + Kale Soup

Spicy Mexican Crockpot Chili

Have you seen the movie Krampus? We did, yesterday. Krampus is definitely not your typical Christmas movie, of course but was very entertaining. It had equal parts creativity, suspense and humor. It is probably too scary for the little ones; a couple of people even left the theatre. I didn’t think it was terribly scary… Continue reading Spicy Mexican Crockpot Chili

Smokey Bacon Chili

Good morning, ya’ll! It’s another beautiful brisk Minnesota Saturday morning which means that I have warm food on my mind. What is it about fall that makes eating a bowl of ground beef with tomatoes so appealing? In the summer this would just sound gross. This is one of those questions that I have had… Continue reading Smokey Bacon Chili

Sweet Potato Enchilada Chili

I am having a seriously hard time coping with how fast time is flying by. This week went by in a flash, and the weekend went even faster. Can you believe that Christmas is only 10 weeks away? I can’t either. Luckily, my husband is there constantly reminding me. I swear he starts to get… Continue reading Sweet Potato Enchilada Chili
