my may/june menu

I found some fantastic recipes during May & June that I can’t wait to share with you. Summer time is my favorite time of year, despite the over 100° days. I have been slowly working on my patio, making it comfy and a great place to hang out. I got these chairs & ottoman on [...]

my march menu

This is a bit late… I apologize. You know how it goes. Life happens fast and next thing you know it’s May. You blink and you live in a new house. You wake up from a nap and you’re 31. I’ve heard it never slows down, so I’m going to adjust as best I can. [...]

You can click most of the pics below to take you to the recipe. And, here is what I made in January… enjoy. Pioneer Woman cinnamon rolls | Technically I [...]

menu recap [week 35]

[week 35] Overall a pretty boring week on the cooking front. I made two different types of meatballs… turkey and beef/pork combo. Very different results… Earlier in the week, I had some leftover ground turkey so I made these turkey meatballs with a greek yogurt/sriracha dipping sauce. I am so paranoid when cooking chicken and [...]

menu recap [week 26]

Monday: Fish Fillets with Tomatoes,  Squash, and Basil Again, I used the pre-made parchment paper packets, so much easier. We really liked this recipe and I used halibut instead of our usual tilapia so it was much heartier than our usual fish portion. Tuesday: Pasta with roasted tomatoes and Italian chicken In an on-going effort [...]

life / menu recap [week 12 & 13]

[Weeks 12 & 13] Okay – I’ve been on a cooking hiatus so this is more of a life recap, than a menu recap. Starting with St. Patrick’s Day, I went out to eat for almost EVERY meal. Not good, not good. But here a few pics of my St. Patty’s celebration as a consolation. Sam [...]

menu recap [week 9]

Sunday: Stuffed Zucchini with Cheesy Breadcrumbs I received my first produce bag from the Natural Farms co-op I joined. It was packed full of zucchini so I decided to try this stuffed zucchini recipe. We paired it with some leftover steak we had, but it’d be great with just about anything or by itself if you’re vegetarian. Monday: [...]

menu recap [weeks 6 & 7]

[Week 6] The superbowl food coma, combined with a mid-week ski trip meant not a lot of cooking for me this week. We had such a successful, very small, get together for the superbowl.  Everything turned out great and I ate my weight in all the delicious snacks. Of course P-Dub made an appearance…with the BBQ [...]

Menu Recap: December / Week 3

I really like doing these menu recaps. It holds me accountable for our meals throughout the week and forces me to organize a shopping list at the beginning of the week rather than running to the store after work or on my lunch break twice a week. Run on sentence anyone? I’m sure menu planning [...]

Menu Recap: December / Week 1

Monday: Rachael Ray’s Arroz con Pavo I love re-purposing leftovers, and this turkey with rice sounded perfect for all of the turkey we had leftover from the recent holiday. Unfortunately, my turkey had already gone bad, so sad. Thought I’d share the recipe, though, in case any of you were smarter than me and put some [...]
