Instant Pot Beef & Vegetable Soup

There was a little snafu with the photographs on my phone when our son was fixing another snafu with my computer. So this is the one and only photo I have of this delicious soup! It’s actually a photo of a photo because that’s…

Butter Lettuce Steak Wraps

I’ve cut down dramatically on red meat. In fact, I haven’t had a steak in almost three weeks. If you aren’t familiar with me and my love affair with steak, I could easily eat a gigantic, bloody rib eye every day of my life….

Langostino Tacos

While I was looking for wild caught fish that’s easy to deal with at Costco the other day, I ran across Langostino “Lobster Tails”. Lobster? Not really, but they do taste like miniature lobster tails. And after searching “what is langostino” in Wikipedia, let’s…

Grain Free Pesto Chicken Flatbread

These are Oh. SO. Good. And the best part is that they’re easy to make and look gorgeous. They work for a casual dinner or lunch with family or for a more special meal with guests –  paired with a big salad, a great…

Asian Style Beef & Vegetable Soup – Instant Pot

I woke up at 2:30 this morning. Wide awake. I don’t know why that happens sometimes. So I laid there for about 45 minutes trying to go back to sleep but one of the dogs – Romeo, was farting and my husband was snoring….

Grain Free Crispy Chicken Tenders

Every now and then I need something fried. There’s something about that salty crunch that is so satisfying! These crispy chicken tenders are simple to prepare and are much healthier than you’ll find in most restaurants that serve this type of food. When I have…

Chicken Meatball Soup

I could live on soup! I’d say I make a big batch about every six weeks. My favorite is chicken soup but I do like to switch it up every now and then. Sometimes I do beef and vegetable, creamy broccolli, and occasionnally a…

Slow Roasted Tomato & Pesto Soup

Ahhhh…summer. We are having a wonderful summer. I hope you are too. We’re trying to squeeze in as much camping, hang gliding, trips to the lake, puttering around the garden, and picnics in the park as we can before the long winter arrives. My…

Spicy Tri Tip Tacos

This was my first tri tip experience. Our typical meaty go to is marinated and grilled flank steak, but to find it grass fed and somewhat local is a task. They are priced about the same, 2 lbs of grass fed for about $24.00,…

Spicy Grilled Shrimp with Garlic Ginger Veggies

This meal is super simple! In a large saute pan drizzle about 3 teaspoons of avocado oil and 1 teaspoon of sesame oil. Turn heat to medium/medium high and add 2 cups of cauliflower, 1 1/2 cups of broccoli, 1 package of cremini mushrooms…

The Great Pizza Roll Experiment

I have a huge binder of recipe ideas for this blog full of all different types of sweets and savories. I love to look through it and be inspired, but I rarely actually use it! I guess food blogging feels more exciting to me…
