Kale and Quinoa Salad with Strawberries and Goat Cheese

Kale and Quinoa Salad with Strawberries and Goat Cheese

Today should be “Garden Friday” where I show you how I somehow managed to make it another 7 days without killing the green things growing in my backyard. But it’s raining outside. Like, “you shoulda’ built that ark” raining. So instead of showing you our first zucchini, or telling you about my peach tree dropping [...]

A Whole30 Favorite: Lettuce-Wrap Chicken Fajitas

Lettuce-Wrap Chicken Fajitas

We’re in the Whole30 home stretch! When we started this thing 4 weeks ago, I imagined Day 31 to be a monstrous carb fest: a deep-fried french fry sandwich in a tortilla. (Possibly battered and deep fried again.) But here we are, 29 days later and I’m all like “Eh.” Don’t get me wrong, it’s [...]

BBQ Pulled Chicken Stuffed Baked Sweet Potato

We’ve eaten some pretty good stuff over the last almost three Whole30 weeks (hello, fire-sale King Crab legs!) but our favorite meal (besides the crab) has been this a baked sweet potato half topped with barbecue “pulled” chicken, served along side something green. And not just because it’s an incredibly budget-friendly meal… but that helped, [...]

Slow-Cooker Chicken & Sausage Stew

This is the time of year when I’m usually trying to figure out if this is the coldest, longest winter that I can remember in Texas. I know it’s not… and it really was barely 2 months ago that I was whining about the lack of a real fall in Texas. But it’s cold. For [...]

Let’s Talk Leftovers: Turkey Quesadillas with Chipotle Cranberry Sauce

There are some really fun and inventive Thanksgiving leftover ideas out there. The first dish that always comes to mind is Pink Parsley’s Turkey Cranchiladas. Different. Fun. And completely delicious. And more importantly, they look nothing like lunch and dinner from the previous 3 days. Tortillas are an awesome vehicle for leftovers. A little turkey, [...]

Let’s Talk Leftovers: The Cranburger

The Cranburger

Thanksgiving leftovers don’t have to suck. I mean they can, and after 3 days of the same exact thing, they usually do. But they can be reimagined in non-sucking ways. Take cranberry sauce, for instance. Leftover cranberry sauce is something that I firmly believe can never be a bad thing. Cranberries themselves are good with [...]
