Meatball Sub Stuffed Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes

I'm sitting here in a Coffee Shop in Whitefish Montana trying to tell you about these sweet potatoes when all of a sudden I'm interrupted by a stranger coming up to my table. He looks me right in the eye and tells me I have very hairy legs... my brain just sort of freezes and I look at him with ...

Golden Milk Tropical Turmeric Smoothie

I've been into all things tropical during the last couple months. I think it's because winter is starting to feel extra long, and I just can't wait to feel the warm sun on my face again! I thought I might get a little reprieve when I went to California to work for a week, but they had unusually cold weather, ...

Rustic Italian Style Sausage Sweet Potato Noodles

We've been making these Rustic Italian Sweet Potato Noodles a lot over the last year. But somehow I've just never written down the recipe before, probably because it barely qualifies as a recipe, it's more like an outline. You can easily change up which type of sausage you use/change up the greens/and use different seasonings. Everyone who tastes this dish ...

Mount Brown in Glacier National Park

We were lucky enough to have an extra long hiking season, and we climbed mountains right into November of last year which is pretty much unheard of! Around here you're usually relegated to skis or snowshoes by October, but we definitely enjoyed the extra long fall season. It feels like forever and a day since we've stood on top of ...

Western Omelet Waffles

I think the secret to eating healthy lies in getting creative with your favorite flavors. I'm sure I'm not alone in not being able to eat a boneless skinless chicken breast with steamed veggies... right? Flavor is where it's at, and for me avoiding boredom is helpful too. Enter egg waffles, I first saw the concept done by one of ...

Chocolate Fudge Skillet Cake

Today is about chocolate, because it's the weekend and I love chocolate. This cake is so quick and easy to make, it's all too easy to get yourself into trouble having too much of it around! Now... I know it's been a few weeks since there's been a chocolate recipe, (see Flourless Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins) but rest assured I have a few ...

True Love is in the Little Things

Sometimes Valentine's Day just gets on my nerves. In theory it's a great idea, because another day to celebrate love is always a good thing. But all the commercialization can really take away from that. Just last week and ad came on the radio asking if 'you're ready for Valentine's Day?'. From there the narrator went on to guilt us ...

Butternut Noodles with Chorizo Spaghetti Sauce

I love comfort food with a twist, and butternut noodles are one of my favorites in the winter months. Zucchini noodles are great, but butternut noodles have my heart with their addictive flavor. They also pair incredibly well with tomato sauces. So I decided to take my classic spaghetti recipe, and change it up with some chorizo and fresh thyme. ...

Wilcox Pass and Summit Scramble

Wilcox Pass is one of our all time favorite hiking adventures! The views are nothing short of breathtaking, especially since it's only rated a moderate grade hike with 7.5 miles roundtrip. You look across the valley at massive glaciers that are so beautiful, you'll keep stopping along the way to have another look, or take a million photos in my ...
