We have entered softball season where we spend hours upon hours at the softball field...in the chili evening air. Often I'm scrambling for dinner. I can't seem to ever remember to throw something in the crock pot. Right across the street from the field is a grocery store. After dropping off my daughter for her warm ups the boys and I ran over to scout something out for dinner, because we were going to be at the field for the next 2.5 hours. One night ended up grabbing a creamy, nice and . . .
This is one of my favorite side dishes. I feel like it pairs perfectly with chicken, fish, beef, pork...just about anything. I love how roasting makes the sweetness of these veggies really stand out. I'm getting' hungry just typing about them. It's also incredibly easy. Here's what you're going to need: 1. Red Potatoes 2. Parsnips 3. Sweet Potatoes 4. Carrots 5. Olive Oil 6. Salt 7. Pepper 8. Garlic Salt Toss it all together. Place it in a baking . . .
This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group and Smithfield, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #PutPorkontheMenu http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV Last month I went to a girls' night where we were all supposed to bring something with apples in it. With the cooler months approaching, I wanted to pair my apples with some savory, fall flavors. Sweet potatoes! HELLO. I threw in some coriander and the smell of sweet potatoes and apples roasting in . . .
Need a recipe for you football party, something to spice up your fall evening, or just something that will blow your tastebuds out of the water?! We have the perfect recipe. Smoky Chipolte Steak fries baked in the oven with a little kick. Dip them in a tangy avocado and ranch sauce and it makes the dish complete. Best yet.. it's healthy! Potatoes are seriously one of our favorites foods here on OSD. You may or may not know this but Des and I are Idaho girls. Life took us to California, and . . .
Burgers and Fries, Fries and burgers. They go together perfectly! However, I don't know about you but perfect diner fries aren't easily done at home...besides they will make your house smell staanky. (and common, do I have to tell you they aren't the healthiest? ) so beside these Cheesy Potato Fries, I like to make a Grilled Potato Salad as a side to my grilled meat. Toss together herbs, grilled onions, bacon with smokey hot potatoes and its a huge crowd pleaser. 1. Heat grill on high . . .
ok, YES! Happy Cinco de Mayo!! but we blasted you with all our current Cinco recipes last week, that today, instead of more mexican inspired dishes, we give you TOTAL American. Hows that, eh? eh? REALLY what happened is that our post with a fellow blogger fell through- stinking technology. But, sometime soon you'll see it. (if you need a list of cinco de mayo recipe ideas, scroll to the bottom and click on the link) ok, go ahead and take a break from your diet and sit down and eat . . .
Yes, I'm an Idaho girl. From 10 on I was raised in potato country. I've lived here in Cali for the last almost 5 years and totally loved it! We will be heading back to Idaho soon and as excited as I am, it really breaks my heart to leave what has become a second home for us. Palm trees will be in my dreams. Mountains and snow.. here we come! In reality, I really do love Idaho. Fresh crisp air and broad sky's. The people are active and happy, really a great place to raise a family, and that's . . .
I had a baby 2 months ago (she's way too cute and smiley and full of pink and bows and scalloped edges. I love it.) so life has obviously been a little crazy. I took a little break from recipe creating in the kitchen, and while I was still cooking, I hadn't had a delicious, hearty breakfast in a while. I've recently become obsessed with kale, and I've always been obsessed with bacon (who isn't? OK, Carly isn't, and all of our other vegetarian friends, but you can easily omit the bacon and use . . .
I am currently at home, my childhood home, in Idaho, with no kids (or makeup and in my stretchy pant) basking on the couch. Isn’t vacation the BEST!?!?! I mean seriously. This never happens in real life, in my other home.So I’m soaking it in while I can. I mean, I’m not a total slacker…common, I still clean and cook. I LOVE cooking for family. My brothers are the best complimenters you ever did meet. I get really excited every time I come home to make my latest favorite meal for . . .
Now that February has come to a close, and spring is upon us we will slowly stop cooking our comfort dishes and turn to bikini ready foods right? Salads filled with freshly picked fruits and veggies. More time outdoors less time cuddled up with a blanket. It's not quite spring yet, and we have a few cold days left- so I have another comfort food left to post. >>See, just around thanksgiving I truely came to know the real meaning and feeling of comfort food. Thanksgiving day, Aubrey and . . .
