It’s Not Delivery – Curry Chicken Pizza

Ugh, Monday.  And tax day.  That’s should be against the law or something.  That’s a lot of “ugh” to handle at the beginning of the week!  And I don’t know about y’all but taxes were brutal this year!  Oh the joys of self-employment. 🙂 Making it through this day, or any rough day, calls for…

Meatless Monday – Farro Risotto with Balsamic Mushrooms

I decided several years ago that I was going to give up meat for a month. I was doing it as a part of a fast with my church that asked us to give something up to refocus. I decided on meat and to focus on regaining control over my health. I’ve always been a…

Laissez les bons temps rouler!

Y’all, I’m going to go out on a limb and say that this is the best crock-pot recipe I have ever created.  Whoa! Maybe it was so delicious because it’s 20 degrees and snowy outside.  Or maybe it’s because I love cajun food.  Or maybe it’s because I love coming home to dinner already done…

Happy Hour – His & Hers

It’s Saturday night and I want a cocktail. The only problem is I’ve been all nice and cozy in my yoga pants, curled up on the couch under my favorite blanket, watching football, and binge watching Boardwalk Empire all day. What’s a girl to do? Well, I could hop in the car and go to…

Slow-Cooker Sunday – Chicken, Potato, and Kale Curry

Some weekends are just so busy that my husband and I only connect as one or the other of us is running out the door.  We had one like that a few weeks ago when he was working shows and I had an event and the only time were were actually going to be in…

Weeknight Warrior – Chicken, Broccoli, and Tomato Mac

Let’s face it, all of us are CRAZY busy these days.  The thought of coming home to fix a dinner after sitting in rush hour traffic forever, or picking the kids up from school and driving them three different places for soccer, ballet, or whatever the latest phase is absolutely sends us into a panic…

Tailgate Time – Pimento Cheese & Brownies

Football season is well under way so that means it’s tailgate time! Well, by tailgate time I mean time to hang out at home in my yoga pants, watching football on my big TV, and stuffing my face with lots of yummy food. Let’s call that “home-gating”!  Sure beats dealing with the crowds, traffic, and…

Slow-Cooker Sunday: Asian BBQ Pork Bahn Mi

Have you ever noticed that slow-cookers get a bad rap?  It seems that people either love them or hate them.  I happen to be on the love side of the argument.  What could be more convenient than throwing a bunch of things in the pot, turning it on, walking away, and coming home from work…

Soup’s On! – Pollo Posole Verde

When October rolls around and there is a nip in the air and the leaves start to change I want nothing more than to curl up on the couch under a blanket with a book (Frankenstein, Dracula or Poe of course) and a cup of tea.  I want to visit apple orchards and pumpkin patches…
