Sweet Potato Casserole with Crunchy Oat Topping

Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite foods, and when the holidays come around, I always opt to make a sweet potato casserole with some fun toppings to indulge in. This year I added a crunchy oat topping, drizzled with maple syrup, to give it an extra sweet crunchy yum with every bite. Start off…

Colorful & Nutrient Packed Kale Salad

Meal prep is such a time saver. One good chop session and I’m set for veggie bowls all week. When hunger hits, it’s an easy peasy toss in a bowl, and I have a delicious nutrient packed salad ready to be devoured! The base of this salad is kale. I washed the leaves, stripped them…

Fresh & Zingy Carrot Ginger Dressing

Roasted carrots, blended with zingy fresh ginger and tangy rice vinegar, this dressing is perfect for super salad bowls or to use as a raw vegetable dipping sauce. It only has 5 ingredients and can be easily modified if you feel it needs a little kick, or more sweet carrot yum. This is my current…

Chicken Stuffed Poblano Peppers

These peppers are packed full of yummy goodness, and you get to use a blow torch to roast them. Delicious and fun! What more could you ask for?! I usually prep all my ingredients (chop, shred, mince, grate), then set them aside in small bowls, so when I start cooking it is an easy peasy…

Hot Nashville Fried Chicken

Sometimes I like to heat things up a bit and take my tongue on a wild ride with something filled with fiery spices! Nashville chicken hit the spot perfectly. Not only did it warm my insides, but the pairing of a biscuit sandwich with dill pickle slices, was a magical combination of hot and tangy….

I Finally Made Good Biscuits!

Ok, I’ve struggled on this one. I’ve made biscuits several times. The first time they were decent-ish, they held together nicely, but were way too floury tasting and very dense. The next couple of times they fell apart and were a weird light crumbly texture. I felt like I created a new kind of dessert…

Made with fresh ginger and pressed garlic, these fried little bites are bursting with flavor! With a little bit of prep work, this recipe is super easy to throw together. The original recipe is…

Sesame Seed Buns 2.0

These have now replaced my old bun recipe. They were good, a huge step up from store bought, but after making them a few times, I started critiquing them a bit. They weren’t quite how I wanted them to be. They were a bit too light and fluffy, and were missing something that I couldn’t…

Double Fried Seasoned Fries

Warm, crispy golden fries, dusted in salt and spices, what’s not to love? I think it’s my favorite way to eat russet potatoes. Have you ever wondered who came up with this ingenious idea? Some might think the name “French fry” is a dead give away. France, duh, it’s in the name. Well, the French…
