Cheese-Less Mac N’ Cheese

Intentions: Nutrition, Time, Ease OK, I have made a lot of versions of this meal over the years. I feel like every time I make it, I make it a little bit different. But, this one might be my new go-to, if only for the ease and how few dishes it requires! Now, bear with […]

Meal Plan 3/25/2019

Hi all! After a nice discussion with Ben (aka, my favorite person to bounce ideas off of and strategize with), I decided it would be more fun for me and hopefully you if I post my meal plans and recipes after I actually make them.  Life keeps changing, and I find the need to make […]

A Classic: Steak and Potatoes

I’m not a huge meat eater to begin with (in case you didn’t notice), so I don’t cook a lot of steaks.  Honestly, for the price of the meat I just can’t justify buying it for myself.  But, Ben absolutely loves steak…I swear, his stomach is a bottomless pit when it comes to steak.  So, […]

Quinoa Chicken Sausage Bowl

Ahh, an oldie but a goodie.  This bowl is a super customizable dinner, which makes it a great way to clean out the fridge – just combine whatever veggies you need to use up with a healthy grain like quinoa, farro, or brown rice, and some chicken sausage!  In this case, I’m making this recipe […]

Shrimp Tacos with Mango Salsa

Meal Plan 3/11/19

Last week at my job means that while work isn’t particularly stressful (I’ve already handed off most of my work, and my co-workers are all super supportive of my transition), I have a lot to do to prepare for a new job.  I was offered a job at a great firm, but am still in […]

Sheet-Pan Chicken Shawarma

While I love meal planning and creating recipes myself, I also love finding other food blogs with amazing recipes and trying those out.  I try to find at least one each week to highlight, and this week it is the Sheet-Pan Chicken Shawarma from Half Baked Harvest.  I am copying this recipe 100% this week […]

Spaghetti Veggies and Meatballs

Intent: Ease, Nutrition, TimeTime: 15 minutes This one is a go-to of mine for busy nights, and I love how easy it is (and how few dishes I have to do).  The pasta is made from veggies and lentils, the meatballs are free of antibiotics, artificial flavors, preservatives, etc.  And while I love meatballs, they […]
