I love oatmeal in just about every shape and form. The first time I tried overnight oats was on a girls trip. My friend volunteered to bring these for us for breakfast! I was so excited for a hot steaming jar of "overnight oats"...but when she handed me a chilled jar of oatmeal I was shocked! My shock quickly turned into happiness as I devoured the entire jar that morning. Smooth creamy oats, sweetened with honey, vanilla almond milk and banana. Chia seeds + our favorite toppings make . . .
During summer, when the heat is unbearable, the last thing we want is a heavy meal. We turn to grilled meats and veggies, light salads and ice cold lemonade. Instead of a green salad try making this beautiful rainbow quinoa salad for your next meal or party! In all honestly I do not like raw bell peppers...but there is something about this salad. The combo of the churchy veggies and seasoned quinoa that makes it all perfectly balanced. The beans, celery and savory quinoa are perfect! I made . . .
One of my loves is soft cheese. I love goat cheese, feta and blue cheese, and add one of these to pretty much anything and I'm in! Soft cheeses was honestly what I missed the VERY most during pregnancy. Darn those un-pasturized delicious cheeses! Bring on the blue cheese burgers, greek salads, goat cheese pizzas, and of course - blue cheese slaw! I created this delicious slaw using my mini kitchenaid stand mixer and the fresh prep attachment. There is such a difference between a . . .
This is my Grandma Doxey's Recipe for beef stroganoff. She makes it so great...like grandmas always do. My grandma would make this beef stroganoff often with leftover beef roast from her traditional Sunday roast and potatoes dinner. So if you have leftover steak this meal would be perfect for that! However if you are making from scratch, and fresh beef you can make it on the stove-top or in a pressure cooker! Pressure Cooker Beef Stroganoff Why would you want to use . . .
Ribs are a man's best friends...but are they the cooks? Typically you have to boil ribs, slowly bake them for hours. Then smother them with BBQ sauce and grill them till they're all nice and sticky. SO MUCH WORK. So how about we cut your rib time down by hours! This country ribs recipe is fall off the bone tender, smokey with a tangy sticky glaze you cannot get enough of. I made this country ribs recipe for the first time a couple of weeks ago, and we have made it 1-2x a week ever since. . . .
It is officially, unofficially summer! The other day I whipped up a pot of summer corn chowder and thought I would share with you all this delicious way to toss in lots of summer produce. Corn on the cob is one of my favorite summer foods - but serving plates of boiled corn gets a little bit boring during the warm months. I have a few ideas up my sleeve for savoring this delicious summer food, like this corn chowder and my sweet corn salad. Chowder For Beginners I know it is easy to be . . .
"Pour some sugar on me!!! I'm hot, sticky sweet--from my head down to my feet, yeah!" OK I love the combination of spicy and sweet. Except for Mexican candy, my friend is always trying to get me into it, and I'm just not quite sure I'm there yet. I'll try it one of these days. If you love the spicy-sweet combo, this Spicy, Sticky Chicken with Roasted Apples and Potatoes is for you! I like chicken thighs because they hold up well to the extended baking period, and especially the broiling . . .
I love my simple dinner recipes. These Steak Fajita Tacos are on that list. Most nights out of the week I don't have time or patience to slave away in the kitchen to make an elaborate dinner. Which is the theme of this sheet pan meal week - keep it simple, keep it tasty, and keep it low maintenance. Dinner Made Easy This recipe takes me 30 minutes tops and 20 minutes of that time it's baking in the oven. Just because it's simple and quick doesn't mean it lacks taste. Fajitas are always my . . .
Pizza, in all shape and forms, is a perfect family dinner. Loved by everyone, makes enough to feed an army, and can be made with pretty much any toppings that fits your fancy. This Hawaiian Bacon BBQ pizza is a pizza that fits everyone's likes. Hawaiian bacon bbq pizza fits everyone in my family's need.... Dad- loves bbq chicken pizza so copied what a BBQ chicken would be but switched out the chicken for bacon. Kids love Hawaiian... so we did FRESH pineapple and canadian bacon. I love . . .
Hi there! Today we have an oldie but a goodie made new! For sheet pan week, we wanted to share a few fast and easy ideas to pull dinner off on busy nights. One of our favorites is open-faced sandwiches like this Grilled Chicken Pesto Sandwich. These come together with minimal prep and has the potential to make a lot for large families or groups. In fact, this recipe originally was inspired by my Aunt Cammy. A few years ago, Des and I were in charge of hosting a baby shower for our sister-in-law, . . .
