Chicken Shawarma Salad with Tahini Dressing

Chicken Shawarma Salad with Tahini Dressing

Steve and I are thinking about going on a European cruise this year, and of course, as usual, it got me super excited. There are so many different places that we want to travel since we’ve barely traveled internationally. I went to Spain and Italy […]

Asian Peanut Noodles with Chicken

Asian Peanut Noodles with Chicken

I got the Skinnytaste Cookbook as a gift a few years ago, and I have really loved it! It’s focus, unsurprisingly, is around creating lighter, healthier versions of flavorful, hearty dishes. I love this concept, and I try to find ways to do this in […]

Steak & Sweet Potato Bowls with Avocado-Cilantro Drizzle

Steak & Sweet Potato Bowls with Avocado-Cilantro Drizzle

I try not to eat red meat very often, but Steve is still very much a fan, so I like to occasionally throw it on the weekly menu. Roasted sweet potato and fresh avocado was a combination that I hadn’t had before, and I definitely […]

Homemade Pizza Success (& Failure)

Homemade Pizza Success (& Failure)

Not going to lie, I was pretty nervous to try making homemade pizza dough for the first time. I mean yeast is alive..how creepy is that? But I decided to be brave and tackle my first homemade pizza. Everything was mostly successful, but there were […]

Valentine’s Rice Krispies

Valentine’s Rice Krispies

How cute are these? Seriously. I absolutely love Rice Krispie treats. Let me clarify–homemade Rice Krispie treats. I started making them with my sister when I was in high school, and ever since, I’ve never been able to eat a store bought one. They’re simply […]

Fish Taco Bowls

Steve and I leave for Mexico in a week, and I have the Caribbean on my mind! This recipe is similar to the Mango Chicken over Cauliflower Rice recipe that I shared last week, but with even MORE elements. Despite the huge list of ingredients, […]

Mango Chicken over Coconut Cauliflower Rice

Mango Chicken over Coconut Cauliflower Rice

The Caribbean inspiration continues over here! Mexico is two weeks away, and Steve and I are counting down the days until we’re on the beach! This recipe definitely took a fair amount of prep, so find your sous chef and get to work because it’s […]

Christmas Coffeecake

Christmas Coffeecake

I really love traditions. There’s something so special and comforting around the consistency of traditions when you’re growing up. This delicious coffeecake was a Christmas tradition in my family. It was the only day of the year that we ate it, which of course made […]

Zucchini Lasagna

Zucchini Lasagna

I’m not going to lie–Steve and I were pretty nervous to try this recipe. I just had no idea how the zucchini was going to turn out, and Steve thought the whole thing was going to be green. Let me tell you… it was AMAZING. […]

Cabin Pancakes

Cabin Pancakes

I have to confess–I am a complete pancake snob. I’m actually the worst. I will not eat pancakes unless they’re my family’s recipe. No other pancakes can compare. I debated about whether or not to even share this recipe because it’s so dang good that […]
