5 quick and easy dinners

Here are 5 quick and easy dinners to simplify your busiest of nights.  I hope these meals inspire you and make your life a little less stressed and a little more relaxed! It seems almost fitting that after I shared how I meal prep for a full work week, which I had been consistently doing…

honey soy salmon tacos

Taco Tuesday is getting a makeover!  Move over beef and beans, these salmon tacos add a fresh flavor and exciting crunch to your next taco night. When I meal plan, without fail, I almost always plan a taco-esque dinner for Tuesdays.  I know everyone loves the flavors and it is such a simple way to…

chicken satay with peanut sauce

There are some flavors I am instantly drawn to.  My number one flavor profile pick though?  It’s gotta be peanut sauce anything.  I think that’s why I love thai food so much and even have two different thai peanut chicken recipes on my blog (a pasta dish here and a wrap dish here).  When I…

cream cheese chicken taquitos

Some dinners I definitely make because it’s something I really want to eat, then other times I choose something I know my husband will be thrilled about.  I like to wave my nice wifey flag every once in a while. 🙂  Our tastes are a bit different, but usually there’s a good middle ground I…

roasted tomatillo salsa beef {crockpot recipe}

Do you use tomatillos often?  I actually just really got into them a couple of years ago.  Before that I know I’ve had them in store bought salsa or when someone else cooked for me, but they weren’t something I bought very often.  If you aren’t familiar with them, meet them!  Tomatillos are in the…

peanut butter bacon grilled cheese

Hello! How was your weekend? We picked out our Christmas tree and got the house a little bit festive. First time to a u-cut tree farm!   Today’s recipe comes courtesy of my Secret Recipe Club assignment for the month The Hobo Kitchen… bites from a little kitchen in Hoboken. Ellie writes and shares fun…

fish tacos with feta slaw

I don’t know why we don’t eat fish tacos more often. Every time we I make them it’s pretty much just deliciousness. Serious deliciousness.  These ones were no different. Fish tacos are so simple and fresh tasting too. Gosh I just love them.  And that cool crunch that normally comes along with fish tacos?  Makes…

food and fitness week 3

Hello and happy Monday!  Here we are at another food and fitness look for last week.  Before I share, here are some snaps from our weekend. We toured the family birth center (we’re at a different hospital this time) and got all registered.  4 weeks to go! Family walk + a little beach exploration.  Clearly…

food and fitness week 2

Hi guys!  Hope you had a fantastic weekend.  I had grand plans of starting a new series over the weekend, but instead I stayed away from the computer and had fun with the family.  So much better right?  New series to start tomorrow though! We actually began getting ready for our baby girl.  Yeeeessssssssss. I…
