It’s kind of been one of those weeks where I just didn’t have the time or energy to sit down and write so I apologize for the lack of posts this week. Last night as I thought about what I wanted to share in this post, I couldn’t help but giggle a little to myself. … More A little step out of my comfort zone
To continue my quest for tasty ways to prepare and actually eat those prepared veggies, I found another great way to enjoy Zucchini. I didn’t create this recipe, I saw it on Pinterest from damndelicious.net and thought that it looked pretty easy and tasty. Go here to check out the original recipe. There’s always all … More Baked Zucchini Wedges
You know my goal of eating more veggies? Well, this recipe shows that goal who’s boss! I have been wanting to make ratatouille for a while now and couldn’t wait to try it!

Summer is officially here! Well, it will be here for my family tomorrow at 2:20 PM thanks to those darn snow days. I know one of our favorite summer treats is fresh sweet corn. Grilled sweet corn helps keep your kitchen cool in the summer. Who wants to be stuck in the kitchen messing with … More Grilled Corn On The Cob
Potatoes are probably my favorite vegetable of all time. I’d rather splurge on a big bowl of mashed potatoes than a bowl of ice cream most of the time. I know they don’t really fit in with the low carb lifestyle so many are living, but a little potato here and there never hurt anyone! … More Perfect Oven Roasted Potatoes
I’m kind of a pizza snob. When we moved to South Bend, we left behind one of our favorite pizza places with their famous thin pizza and that sweet red dressing that could make anything taste good. If I were stranded on a desert island and could only have a few items, one would be … More Homemade Pizza Party
Last week when I was picking up some produce at a local market, I noticed avocados were on sale. Ten for $7 so I grabbed ten and thought of what I would be making to use those puppies up in the next week. This was one thing on top of my list!
