I finally got to make dinner for my family tonight. With everything that’s been going on, we’ve been eating whatever we can find and throw together in 10 minutes or less. Still nutrient dense + healthy but a bit boring + repetitive. I knew I wanted to make something that no one had ever tried before. It’s actually new to me too!

This meal is going to happen once a week. I want it to be forever stocked in my fridge, so leftovers are only a quick re-heat away.

I’ve been on a pizza jag, and am including no fewer than five new pizza recipes in my next cookbook. As a matter of fact, one day a couple of weeks ago, I made all five pizzas over a period of four hours.
I finally have basil in my garden.
The smell of both hot dogs on a grill and smoke from disappearing fireworks are just two reasons as to why the Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays.

For a new salad that I have been thinking about I wanted a nice and cool and creamy dressing and I was thinking about trying something a little bit different, an avocado dressing. I am so totally addicted to avocados and I am always looking for new ways to enjoy them!
I love looking at food blogs and getting inspired to make new things. I was looking at the Pioneer Woman Cooks website the other day and I saw a recipe called “Crash Hot Potatoes”.
Fingerling potatoes are a small (probably the smallest) variety of potatoes .
It’s a public secret I like to use a lot of fresh herbs when I’m cooking. It’s just so easy to spike up your everyday cooking with some fresh herbs—especially when you grow them yourself. I’m always trying new and different combinations.
