crockpot maple chile pork


After our trip to Aruba I eased myself back into cooking.  The first night we picked up a hawaiian pizza from our favorite local pizzeria and I made a simple salad to go along with it.  The next night I brought out my crockpot and let it do the work for me.  Don’t you just […]

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 […]

cardamom pannekoeken


I love breakfast on the weekends.  Usually I make something more labor intensive that I think everyone in the house will enjoy.  Kind of a special treat.  Omelets, crepes and waffles are some that come to mind.  Other times I like to try new recipes.  I’m so thankful when my Secret Recipe Club assignment comes […]

what we ate feb 15-21, 2015

With the new year into full force now, a lot of people make resolutions to improve their life.  I just love that.  Maybe those changes are for your health, or maybe like me you want to actually keep your house clean and organized.  The struggle is real over here you guys.  It’s real.  But if […]

coconut curry chicken with udon noodles and broccoli


There are some flavor profiles I just love… like anything with peanut sauce is a win.  Obviously.  Coconut curry sauce is another one.  There’s something about the refreshing coconut milk paired with spiced up curry that mixes perfectly.  You can make curry hot, or keep it mild.  I tend to keep it milder for my […]

healthy peanut butter banana soft serve


It’s been an oddly hot summer here in Washington.  Although we have 90 degrees predicted for this weekend, fall is definitely in the air.  I can start to feel a change in season.   I want to do yard work again, yay!  While browsing through some pictures from a few months ago I came across our […]

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 […]
