Click here to skip my blah blah blah and go straight to the recipe video (I won’t be offended, I promise). I have been wanting to get into recipe video production for a while, and now that I have a new DSLR camera (with auto-focus!), there’s no longer any excuses not to do it. Like most folks, I’ve been watching the likes of Tasty go absolutely viral and for good reason – I love watching the . . .
23 Easy & Healthy Breakfast Recipes
23 Easy & Healthy Breakfast recipes, including drinks & smoothies, savory egg-based meals, and finishing with a list of sweet (but still healthy!) dishes to round out the list. I’m a firm believer that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but when I’m rushing to get to work, I don’t usually have heaps of time to mess around in the kitchen whipping up a healthy and hearty . . .
Authentic (ish) spaghetti carbonara
One of the things I told myself when I started this blog was that I would not do tons and tons of pasta recipes. See, my favorite food is and always has been: pasta. I have to force myself to not eat pasta every day of the week (and twice on Sunday), and part of the reason I wanted to start cataloguing my recipes was so that I could use this as a resource for myself, when trying to answer the age . . .
Microwave scrambled eggs
This past month has been busier than busy, and my priorities have been less on food and more on…well, just getting things done. Now I’m the first person to not mind spending two hours on an elaborate morning breakfast on the weekend, whipping up pancakes, quiches, hash browns and whatever else my starving Saturday self is in the mood for. But sometimes… folks just don’t have time for that, and . . .
Easy baked salmon
Ok y’all, so I need to keep it real for a few minutes on what goes on behind the scenes on any given weeknight in my kitchen. When I’m working on blog posts, I try to organize my weeknight dinners around what I’m writing about that week, so I can write, photograph and actually enjoy the recipes that I publish. This takes time, though, by the time I’ve gathered all the ingredients, shot the photos . . .
Marinated Grilled Chicken skewers
What a week this has been! I’ve gone out after work pretty much every day this week, mostly for work-related functions, so needless to say my home cooked meals were…well… let’s just say that Jonathan made dinner a lot this week. Though I did make an amazing black bean & pulled beef brisket soup with creamy cheddar quesadillas a few nights ago, so I didn’t leave the poor guy to fend entirely . . .
Eggplant parmesan rolls
Spring is finally (kind of, sometimes) here, and all I can think of making are veggie-filled recipes that are light and fresh. This is one of those recipes that I really hesitate before making, because Jonathan doesn’t eat 95% of the ingredients (ie, eggplant and tomatoes). Being the lovely and supportive husband that he is, however, he always at least tastes my tomato-mushroom-eggplant-random . . .
Easy DIY Candles
I don’t know about you guys, but I have a bad habit of under-estimating tasks that I take on. Organizing my wedding was one big fat example of that...times 100! For some reason, I got it in my head that I wanted to DIY everything that I could because I wanted things to be unique. The only way to make sure no one else was going to have the exact same decorations, or invitations…? To make them . . .
Creamy chicken & broccoli pasta
Happy Friday, y'all! It's been a long week and if you're like us, then you're probably looking forward to finally relaxing, and not to making a big elaborate meal. Unless big elaborate meals every day of the week are your thing, in which case, more power to you. That's not me, though, and by the time Friday rolls around, I'm usually trying to think of which leftovers to reheat...! When . . .
Homemade restaurant-style salsa
Some recipes are so simple that I really do think twice about posting them, but then I remember that one of (the many) reasons I started this blog in the first place is to keep track & share my favorite recipes, even the simplest ones. Salsa is one of my favorite things ever, because it’s so fresh and tomatoey, and it can freshen up so many dishes with just a few spoonfuls. A few years ago, . . .
