Dinner

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…

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…

Orange-ginger chicken and veggie bowl

After enjoying confusingly wonderful 60-degree weather last weekend, we’re back to our regularly scheduled blizzard. And as it’s gotten increasingly colder and snowier around here, we’ve gone into hibernation mode. 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…

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…

Onion mushroom turkey burgers

It’s 2016 and I’m eating onions AND mushrooms. Together, even. This year sure is off to a weird start! I don’t typically set resolutions, but I always like looking back at what’s change or progressed over time. And, this mushroom-centric recipe is proof that I have changed in the past few years!…

Chicken with bacon and white bean ragout

You guys. My brother is so cool that he just made this recipe up. I’m so uncool, on the other hand, that I had to Google what a “ragout” was after he sent it to me. #reallife For a little culinary education: He later explained that a ragout is technically a stew,…

Mexican Chicken Soup

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… I’m one of those people who starts listening to Christmas music way before it’s appropriate. But, I’m glad the rest of the world has now caught up to me! It was insanely cold here last week, so we’ve basically been on a soup and tea meal…

Friendsgiving + Mini pumpkin chocolate chip bundt cakes

This past weekend, we had our third annual Friendsgiving. It was actually on Nov. 1, so we kicked off the month of thankfulness in the perfect way! It was definitely earlier than usual, but this month can get so busy, and we wanted to make sure it happened. The girls below are some…
