Chicken Soup

This soup is one of my favs. It’s something between traditional chicken noodle soup and chicken tortilla soup. But this soup doesn’t have any noodles or tortilla strips, just veggies and chicken. It’s pretty flavor packed and is great to make and share or store and keep for a few days. You’ll need: 4 cups … Continue reading

Spicy Apple Salsa with Lemon Butter Shrimp

This dish is one of those that I started with one idea, for spicy apple salsa, and then as I cooked I kept adding stuff. I was gathering the items to make the salsa and realized, “oh, black beans and rice would be great with this!” Then I opened the fridge and was like, “hey! … Continue reading

Chicken Tikka Masala

Why hello there. I’ve been hibernating over the holidays and my apologies in neglecting to post. The holidays aren’t quite over yet so I wanted to share one of my indulgences with you all. Over the past year or so I’ve really been into Indian food. Probably due to the fact that a new Indian … Continue reading

Baked Red Fish

Lately, I seem to be getting blog requests and suggestions from everyone I know. And I love it! Today’s post came from my roommate’s boyfriend. He went on a big fishing trip and brought back two huge red fish filets for me to cook up. I was so excited! It’s a pretty basic recipe but, … Continue reading

Thanksgiving Turkey and Stuffing

Well, I survived cooking my first Thanksgiving Turkey! Wohoo! With help of my Granny and the Conder family, I was able to pull this off. First off, it takes about four days to properly thaw a frozen turkey. So, I bought a fresh one… Which begs the question, why not just buy fresh in the … Continue reading

Crock Pot Chicken

I love using my crock pot but sometimes the time (4 hours, 6 hours) isn’t really conducive to my work schedule. This super easy and healthy recipe cooks in an hour and half so you can easily make it after work. I came home threw everything in the pot, worked out and came back to … Continue reading

Spaghetti Squash Bake

I don’t know if you’ve noticed or not but there’s lots and lots of winter squash in the grocery store lately. I have always been a little curious about the spaghetti squash and if it’s really like spaghetti on the inside. Well, it does pull apart and the strands of squash do look a lot … Continue reading

Bacon Wrapped Shrimp

I’ve been wanting to barbecue something on a skewer for a while now. However, after my attempt, I highly suggest you use skewers that were made for grilling. I didn’t, and the ones I used burned up like little toothpicks pretty quickly. The shrimp still turned out delicious but the grilling part got a little … Continue reading

Cheesy Enchiladas with Turkey and Spinach

For Mexican girls night dinner, I decided to take the plunge and make enchiladas. I was never really a fan of enchiladas growing up. I think the red sauce always creeped me out. This was my first attempt at enchiladas and they turned out awesome! I took a few steps to make these on the … Continue reading

It’s a great (and healthy!) way to change it up from regular salsa. 1 can of black beans 1 can of corn 1 small red onion 1 small jalapeno Minced garlic Cilantro Lime Cumin Salt Rinse black beans and corn … Continue reading
