Make Ahead Sausage Egg Muffins

We rely heavily on egg muffins, egg bakes, and frittatas for quick and easy breakfasts on the go. Egg muffins are great because they're already portioned for you. I like to make a muffin tin of 12 each week, and keep them in the fridge for last minute breakfasts and lunches. They're one staple that's always part of meal prepping for ...

Creamy Coconut Banana Nice Cream

This summer has been one of salads, ice cream, and of course lots of watermelon! It's been unusually hot here, so all things cold are in order for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

In and Out Style Burger Lettuce Wraps

These burgers are so good, they will haunt your thoughts... no doubt about it! As the title suggests, they're inspired by the famous In and Out burger chain in California.

As a kid I was a ranch dressing fanatic, I mean I would eat pretty much anything if it was drowned in ranch. In fact... my cousin and I were famous in ...

Chocolate Covered Cherry Smoothie

The recipe title Chocolate Covered Cherry Smoothie pretty much tells you everything you need to know about this addictive smoothie. But what it doesn't express is just how good this really is. It's hard to define, and I don't seem to have words for how much I love this smoothie. Suffice it to say, the sparkle in Tyler's eyes and ...

Caribbean Jerk Chicken Bowls with Peach Avocado Salsa

This whole recipe started with an overload of peaches, and with them I decided to create a salsa. And it just spiralled from there into a whole meal! There's so much going on here though, you can easily break out just certain parts of the recipe. The peach avocado salsa is awesome on it's own in a 'chips and salsa' ...
