7th Annual Chili Contest: Entry #5 – Spicy Chile Chili

It’s amazing to see a child’s language develop. There are times I look at my child with awe and think, “How did she learn what that word means?” and other times we are both frustrated with her inability to communicate what she wants to say in...

Easy Teriyaki-Glazed Salmon Bowls + Weekly Menu

We went out on Friday night and Mark was so quiet the entire time. I kept joking that it was because I chose the restaurant and I chose the pizza we ordered – duck and fig. Yum! So last night, after the girls were in bed and I was editing these pho...

Easy Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajitas

Monday was probably one of the longest days of my life. Daycare was canceled due to weather which is absolutely ridiculous – the roads were fine. If I can be at Kohls at 8am with a 2-year-old and 13-week-old, THE ROADS ARE FINE. Speaking of, who go...

Cashew Curry Hummus + Weekly Menu

If I had to describe the attractions in our area of southwest Michigan, I would say the beaches, sand dunes, breweries, and wineries. It certainly isn’t the fine dining or shopping that have people coming or staying, that’s for sure. I have t...

7th Annual Chili Contest: Entry #4 – Smokey Chipotle Chili with Ranch Sour Cream + Weekly Menu

As hubby and I were watching the Illinois vs Northwestern football game last weekend while visiting his family for Thanksgiving, it suddenly struck me that it was the last game of the season. Because, ya know, Illinois football in the post-season is...

Beet and Goat Cheese Salad

I saw a patient last week (a pregnant woman with gestational diabetes) that was habitually waking up to eat around 4am. For the life of me, I couldn’t imagine getting up to eat in the middle of the night EVERY night…and then came this week. My in...

Chicken in Coconut Mango Verde Sauce

19 days until this baby is due. You guys, that’s bananas. This countdown is ON. I was talking with my midwife yesterday and she said, “It could be any day now!” I somewhat freaked out. I went home to cuddle Shea and double check that the absolu...

Zucchini Waffles + Weekly Menu

Weekly menu planning is getting progressively more challenging by the week. While I was able to pickle all of our pickling cucumbers, we’re about to be inundated with TONS of tomatoes and butternut squash. Kind of like how we’re just wrap...

Grilled Ginger-Sesame Chicken Chopped Salad + Weekly Menu

I was gearing up for a long, long weekend of cruddy weather and lots of time within the confines of our home. But, I was so very wrong. It turned out to be a lovely weekend filled with lots of fun. And lots of yum (obvi. always) After the trauma of o...

Grilled Pesto Chicken Pasta Salad with Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Arugula and Pine Nuts

Our dog, Lily, has seriously offensive breath. She’s got this massive head, crazy under-bite, crooked teeth…and terrible, terrible breath. At least in the summer when she’s going to the beach all the time, she gets frequent baths. It helps to l...

Banana-Zucchini Muffins (…with everything but the kitchen sink!)

If you’re laughing and/or wondering why on earth I posted such ugly muffins and sub-par photography…I can’t really blame you. But, SHUSH it up anyway! I’m on a zucchini mission and these muffins are muffins of insane greatness. Despite their...

Satay Chicken Noodle Salad + Weekly Menu

I’m totally bummed the weekend is over. It flew by and before I knew it, I hadn’t meal planned or grocery shopped and I was writing a very detailed grocery list to send hubby to the store with. I crossed my fingers that he showed back up with…...

“Gumbo-laya” (Gumbo + Jambalaya) Stew

You guys, I’m like a popsicle on a hot summer day. I’m barely surviving the heat of summer and I have 7+ weeks left of pregnancy. Hopefully, because while it’s hot as heck, I, of course, want a full-term, healthy, squishy baby come early Septem...

3 Ingredient Strawberry Popsicles

You guys, it was HOT AS HADES earlier in the week. This is kind of why I love fall more than summer. That, and I get to eat all things pumpkin with the rest of the world. But I won’t complain. Areas of the US are getting far more unpleasant (and da...

Honey and Olive Oil Zucchini Muffins

Every year when we’re planting our garden, my husband plants yellow squash instead of zucchini. Every year. It’s not that they’re all that different, but I have a personal preference for zucchini over yellow squash and he can’t seem to differ...
