Thankfulness Thursday (on a Friday)

I meant to do this post yesterday, but the day got away from me.  A few weeks ago my husband and I went on a little weekend getaway to Kohler, WI.   The hubs turned 30 this year and we also celebrated our sixth wedding anniversary in September, so we thought we’d get away to […]

Mexican Chicken Quinoa Bake

I love being able to add extra veggies into my meal by finding main dishes that incorporate them.   A friend of mine sent me a link to this meal and I was immediately drawn to all the colorful veggies baked right in.   It ended up being a real crowd pleaser and even my […]

Gluten Free Baked Apple Cider Donut Holes

    Wow…where have I been the last 12 days?  Life just got kind of crazy so to make up for it, I am bringing you something extra delicious.   Every fall, my husband and I take our girls to our local farmer’s market and get them a warm apple cider donut.  The hubs used […]

Gluten Free Crispy Pizza Crust

I’m not gonna lie….there are a few things I really miss since my husband and I took the gluten free plunge.  Most of the time, I just try to find recipes that are naturally gluten free because I think it’s pretty hard, in many cases, to live up to the original.   But, there are […]

Tomato Basil Soup

   Yep, it’s soup season and I could not be more excited!  I’ve had a few soups up my sleeve I’ve been wanting to share with you, but I figured I wouldn’t be inspiring anyone with a warm and toasty soup recipe on a 90 degree day.  This past week, though, I have busted out […]

Apple Peanut Butter Snack Bars

Cilantro Lime Chicken with Southwestern Quinoa

Last week it was absolutely roasting in the Midwest.  Our relatively mild summer was slammed with a 90 degree finale.  I was meal planning for the week and trying to come up with ideas that required little indoor cooking.  I had made this chicken and quinoa salad earlier in the summer and my mom has […]

Vegan Scallion Pancakes with Brown Rice Flour

By Megan  The other night I was making a soup and thinking, “Hmmm, what could I make to go with this beside just my normal salad, potatoes, or roasted veggies?”  I came across this recipe for these miniature, crispy scallion pancakes in my It’s All Good cookbook and immediately knew I had to try them.  Plus, the […]

Broccoli Chicken and Cheddar Panini

This past weekend I had the pleasure of visiting my very dear college roommate, Laura.  We only get to see each other about once a year, but each time, I feel like no time has passed and we slip right into the way things used to be. Since we lived together for 3.5 years, we […]

Salmon-potato cakes with mustard tartar sauce

By Megan  I have a limited diet; one which eliminates pretty much all meats aside from the occasional quality chicken or some sort of fish.  That being said, when I get to have a little fish; I am excited!  There is one problem though…..my husband hates fish unless it is fresh caught trout from Wyoming.
