Enchilada Zucchini Boats

I will sadly admit in a land and time long long ago I believed in the whole "low carb" diet trend. I actually developed lots of recipes and ate that way for nearly a year, and not because I needed to lose weight, but because I bought into the hype that bread, noodles, and potatoes … Continue reading Enchilada Zucchini Boats

Honey Mustard Brussels Sprouts

I love a good sprout. If you don't like brussels sprouts or you refuse to even try them we cannot be friends. These are not your grandma's or mom's boiled brussels sprouts. It is time evolve, friend. Branch out a little. These have TEXTURE and are nice and crunchy on the outside while being delicate … Continue reading Honey Mustard Brussels Sprouts

Smokin Meatloaf (America Loves Meatloaf)

We are a divided house when it comes to meatloaf. Dillon - could eat meatloaf probably everyday. Me - no so much. I will eat meatloaf, but only like once every 5 years, and I like it super traditional and disgusting. You know what I'm talking about; ketchup, Ritz crackers smashed into it, maybe throw … Continue reading Smokin Meatloaf (America Loves Meatloaf)

The best gift Dillon has ever given me

I had no intention to ever write this or ever had the notion to write about "these kind of things" on this blog. Why? I don't know. It took me about 10 years to decide to even share my writing publicly and when I mention "writing" I mean recipes, and then even more time to … Continue reading The best gift Dillon has ever given me

Subtlety Sweet French Toast Bake

I will get to the point with this one, because I am trying really hard to not be "that blog". You know, where it's like 6 paragraphs deep before the author tells you the recipe, buuuuut recipe do usually come to me in little moments or spontaneously, so I have to be a little bit … Continue reading Subtlety Sweet French Toast Bake

Quarantine Enchilada Casserole

Well, the people have spoken. I posted this on Facebook and it was probably our most popular recipe request yet. Casserole. Y'all are killing it out there in quarantine. I personally really like a GOOD casserole, and what I mean by GOOD is NOT soggy, overly saturated in goop, salty, and generic. Getting texture into … Continue reading Quarantine Enchilada Casserole

Quarantine Quiche!

Have y'all noticed how many people do not know how to spell "quarantine" since covid became a thing? Yea, me too. I am not immune to living the quarantine life of limited grocery items as well as limited grocery trips. We order groceries once per week and I will give major props to our usual … Continue reading Quarantine Quiche!

To CBD or not to CBD – Dog Edition

I have the best dogs - you can disagree with me, but I am right. Long before we ever adopted Dale we of course had Jack. You can read Jack's whole life story here, but in summary Jack has arthritis in both elbows and most likely either pinched nerves or arthritis in his hips. Go, … Continue reading To CBD or not to CBD – Dog Edition
