Don't be intimidated by making your own sausage. This isn't complicated at all. No making your own casings or using a meat grinder, these sausage patties are more like mini burger patties. They are also Daniel Plan approved! So if you pair it with Ezekiel bread instead of this bread loaf I included, it would be a clean meal!Read More
Here's a list of excuses you can use to have a reason to make this AWESOME meal:
- End of Summer Fiesta!
- Start of School Fiesta!
- Labor Day Fiesta!
- College Football season Fiesta!
- You own a crockpot and want to have your friends over Fiesta!
If you find yourself cramming in dinner between other commitments like we do, this meal is for you! I made it (and the pasta salad) in one afternoon and it will last us 4 days! It's super simple (thanks to my friend the crockpot) and works well for company. Also, the lemon gives it a nice summer taste.Read More
My regular experiences with sweet potatoes include lots of butter, brown sugar, and marshmallows. Yes, I'm talking about those yummy casseroles we eat at Thanksgiving! However, over the last few years I've been serving up sweet potatoes in newer and healthier ways. This dish has become a favorite of ours.Read More
This meal was admittedly a little out of my comfort zone. Had I not enjoyed it at a friend's house first, I probably would've shied away from a meal that included coconut milk and cauliflower. I'm so glad I didn't! This dish is decadent, favorable, and 100% satisfying. It would be a great one to make when having company over for the holidays!Read More
Enchiladas were pretty daunting to me. I didn't know I could make "red sauce" at home or if I could get the tortilla shells to stay in place, or if everything would taste decent once I baked it, but it all worked and was very yummy!Read More
Just when I feel like maybe I've hit a rut in the kitchen, BAM! Spicy Lemon Basil Chicken! It's easy, it's inexpensive, and it's decadent! That lemon/basil/garlic combo is a real winner y'all.Read More
Ah tacos. Few things make a house smell better than taco meat on the stove, am I right?! I know I'm right. What makes them even better?! When you can feast on them knowing that they are actually doing your body GOOD! This version of taco meat is full of veggies and free of chemicals!Read More
Matthew and were both more than ready to say adios to the bad eating we embraced over the holidays, so it was nice to pull out that friendly crock-pot and fill it with whole foods.
I was especially excited about this recipe because it was so simple!
I did SO MUCH COOKING from Thanksgiving to New Years that I am *almost* sick of my kitchen!
So to be able to dump these simple ingredients in the crock-pot and have minimal cleanup helped make the transition from holiday foods to whole foods MUCH easier!
