Beef Stew + Roasted Potatoes

I know soup season is in full swing, but I feel like stew is left out and underrated. I love a good hearty, meaty stew this time of year because it is comforting and filling. Growing up, the winter months were always my favorite because my mom would pull out her crockpot/dutch oven and makeContinue reading “Beef Stew + Roasted Potatoes”

Red Wine Roast + Cauliflower Mash

Nothing says fall like a warm roast! Growing up, my mom used to always pull out the dutch oven around September when the leaves would turn and make delicious pot roasts, stews, goulash and more. So warm and hearty, which is exactly what I crave during the colder months. This red wine roast is incredible.Continue reading “Red Wine Roast + Cauliflower Mash”

Butternut Squash Pasta

Nothing says fall more than squash, especially butternut squash. Butternut squash is slightly sweet and can be used in a number of dishes from sweet to savory. I am sure you are familiar with probably the most popular butternut squash dish – butternut squash soup, but these dish takes the humble squash to a wholeContinue reading “Butternut Squash Pasta”

Spicy Meatball Subs

Who doesn’t love a good meatball sub? These remind me of my childhood and I haven’t had one in years to my recollection. They are delicious and messy and it is hard to eat just one. This version isn’t necessarily kid friendly, unless your kid likes spicy – but you can easily omit the crushedContinue reading “Spicy Meatball Subs”

Kale Cauliflower Bowl with Tahini

We all love kale, right? LOL definitely not….there are not many dishes with kale in it that I have honestly enjoyed. I can probably count them on a single hand and the majority are in the form of a caesar salad with only a portion of kale actually in it. But kale doesn’t have toContinue reading “Kale Cauliflower Bowl with Tahini”

Creamy Dijon Chicken with Kale and Orzo

This recipe has some ~fall~ vibes, but it is delicious anytime of the year! Although it may seem like a heavy recipe, the lemon and kale really brighten it up and make it refreshing and light. It has so much flavor and comes together pretty quickly. To make this even easier, you can make thisContinue reading “Creamy Dijon Chicken with Kale and Orzo”

KungPao-ish Chicken

Okay so I call this recipe KungPao-ish because it is definitely not 100% authentic. I don’t have sichuan peppers that are typically used in this dish to give it that tingly heat. Other than that though the ingredients are fairly authentic – chicken, celery, red bell pepper and peanuts. This is probably not the sameContinue reading “KungPao-ish Chicken”

Chicken Sausage Kale Bowl with Soy-Tahini Sauce

Hello Fall! I am ~falling~ in love with these bowls. That was pretty cheesy, but I just can’t stop creating and eating these bowls. Grains, vegetables, protein…what more can you want? This one is delightful – so many colors, flavors and textures. Let’s talk about kale for a minute – I am actually not aContinue reading “Chicken Sausage Kale Bowl with Soy-Tahini Sauce”

Leek Risotto with Cajun Shrimp

Risotto is delicious but it is not something I often think of cooking or really want to bother with. I have attempted it a few times and it is tedious. Risotto requires a bit of time and a lot of patience….which I am usually short on! But I knew I wanted to try to makeContinue reading “Leek Risotto with Cajun Shrimp”

Vermicelli Noodle Bowl

I love a good noodle bowl! Especially when it is packed full of flavors and textures – like these vietnamese inspired bowls. They are light, spicy, acidic and sweet. I love all types of asian food and love trying to create my own versions at home. This dish features fresh vegetables, soft noodles, and meatballs.Continue reading “Vermicelli Noodle Bowl”
