Kale Caesar Salad with Parmesan Chicken

“Hello from the other side…” Which side, you ask? The weird universe you all know as Colorado, in which it snows all spring long. Or, the non-existent blog post world. I’ll leave you guessing (thanks Adele). 😉 Even though winter continues to successfully overpower the warmth, we’ve slowly been moving out of our soup…

Sprinkle’s Strawberry Cupcakes

Hello, cupcake genius Candace. Thanks for sharing the best cupcake recipe ever with the rest of us wannabes! Have you tried Sprinkles cupcakes? We love them! They have a location in Scottsdale, so sometimes when I’m home we’ll go get a variety of flavors and cut them up to sample bites…

Sriracha Hummus

Happy Friday (and Go Broncos)! The Super Bowl is a pretty big deal around here this year for obvious reasons. Admittedly, I’m not anywhere close to being an avid football fan. I worked on my computer (and maybe did some online shopping…) during the last game, occasionally poking my head up…

Mexican Chicken Quinoa Bowl

“What’s our plan?” As a former military man, Ryan is all about plans and schedules. And don’t even get me started on timing: if we aren’t 15 minutes early? We’re late. I’m pretty much the opposite… I like to be on time, but sometimes it just isn’t going to happen. And…

Healthier black bean brownies

Let’s get the elephant out of the room and acknowledge these two facts up front: These brownies have black beans in them. You make them in a blender. Seriously? I was so intrigued by this recipe that I had to give it a try… and these black bean brownies ended up to…

Orange-ginger chicken and veggie bowl

What is it about winter weather that makes you want delivery or take-out food? Or soup, but after a long day at work —…

Chili cornbread pie

Who wants to eat pie for dinner? And by pie, I mean turkey and bean chili with a cornbread crust. That’s what you were thinking too, right? This chili cornbread pie recipe comes from a cooking class Ryan and I did recently at Stir Cooking School! It was a really…

Banana bourbon cupcakes

If Joy the Baker tells me to bake something, I usually do it. Someday, I hope to have a cookbook library. But for now, I just have a small selection of my favorite cookbooks on an Ikea bookshelf in the living room (which is basically also the kitchen #citylife). And, Joy the…

Taco Spaghetti Squash Bake

Happy Friday! Let’s continue our made-up Spaghetti Squash Week celebration. I found this Southwest Spaghetti Squash recipe on Siri’s blog, and immediately wondered how I could make it a more filling, complete meal for us (let’s be real — I’m pretty sure Ryan would cry if I tried to introduce meatless nights!).…

Sausage Broccolini Spaghetti Squash

Happy Spaghetti Squash Week! Ok, I actually just made that up. Does spaghetti squash week exist? If not, let’s create it! Because I have two favorite spaghetti squash recipes to share today and tomorrow. They’re warm and cheesy, but better for you than the sausage broccolini pizza I wish I was eating…
