Sriracha Cauliflower Fried Rice

We make fried rice fairly often because it's a fantastic way to use up little bits of leftovers in the fridge. Sometimes I use cauliflower for a veggie packed version, but sometimes I use cold leftover cooked rice when I'm really craving carbs. Either way you make it, fried rice is both delicious and budget friendly, (and I need all ...

Life Changing Rosemary Mushroom Cream Sauce

This sauce is going to come into your life and envelop you in it's incredibly creamy embrace. It's quite simply the number one recipe we make at family holidays, and birthday occasions. I know the title is a little over the top, but I do save the truly outrageous claims for my family's all time favorite recipes. I mean the ...

Spinach Salad with Honeycrisp Apples, Pomegranates, and Candied Nuts

Pomegranates have been making their appearance again, and they're always a favorite in our house for fall/winter salads. It doesn't matter what the season is, we love having a giant salad for dinner at least once a week. And since I've just used up the last of my garden tomatoes, (except for a few precious packages of fresh tomato sauce ...

Balsamic Roasted Chicken and Veggie Sheet Pan Dinner

I'm a huge fan of easy dinners, and if they come together in just 1 pan/pot that's all the better for the dishwasher, (aka... me). Sheet pan dinners are relatively new in our house, but it only took the first meal to know that this concept of baking everything on a cookie sheet is going to be happening a lot! ...

Creamy Spaghetti Squash Florentine

The word Florentine pretty much just means some kind of dish with lots of creamy spinach in it. Everybody has a different way of making the classics, but for me it all started with an Eggs Florentine dish that I've made so often I can make it in my sleep. First there's a bed of spinach with a creamy bechamel, ...

Sweet Potato Noodles with Chorizo, Roasted Red Pepper, and Spinach

I don't know why I don't use chorizo more often. For some reason I forget about it for a while only to rediscover and fall in love with it all over again! The other day while I was doing the final recipe test for these noodles, I found myself incapable of staying out of the browned chorizo that was supposed ...

Ethiopian Inspired Berbere Chicken Curry

I've been way outside my comfort zone lately, first with these Samosa Style Twice Baked Potatoes, and now this Ethiopian inspired dish! But one of the things that keeps me inspired and excited about life, is trying new things. I promise this recipe is super easy just like my usual style, it's just got a little exotic touch. If you've ...

Chipotle Chicken Taco Bowls

This recipe is my follow-up to last week's Slow Cooker Chipotle Chicken. While you can definitely use that chipotle chicken in any Mexican dish you love, I thought I'd give you the recipe for what we've been eating several times a week, for weeks on end. We both love taco bowls and obviously we eat them quite often, but we ...

Slow Cooker Chipotle Chicken

Mexican food always sounds good to me, and I particularly love the flavor of smoky chipotle added into as many dishes as possible. It's one of those flavors that simply never gets old. And maybe that's because it's so multidimensional, being simultaneously smoky/spicy/earthy/with a hint of sweetness hanging out there in the background. For a while I was pretty content ...
