I’ve got a secret…

I suppose that by posting this blog it’ll no longer be a secret. Our family knows this, close friends know this, but the majority of our acquaintances do not. About 3 weeks ago I was shopping at Target (dangerous, I know). I really wanted this bottle of Pinot Grigio, but I hesitated. I hadn’t gotten …

This Woman Won’t Protest

I am grateful that if I am hungry I can go to my pantry and cook something. I am grateful that I wasn’t sold into slavery as a child. I am grateful that I have been given countless opportunities for education and growth without restriction. I am grateful that I have access to medicine available …

Fried Cauliflower

I absolutely love deep-fried veggies. The booth selling fried veggies is the first booth I visit every year at the fair. Even better, it’s so simple to make something like fried cauliflower at home.  Ingredients: 1 bag frozen cauliflower, cooked 1 1/2 cups flour 1 Tbsp garlic powder 1 Tbsp salt 2 eggs Oil for …

Chicken Stuffed Peppers

I have a confession. I’ve never made stuffed peppers before. However, for a first-time effort, these turned out REALLY good! I was out of ground beef so I used chicken. In my opinion, they’re even better than traditional stuffed peppers.  Ingredients: 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast 3 bell peppers 1/2 cup corn (you can …

Bath Bombs with NO Citric Acid

I’ve been told in the past by several people that they’ve always wanted to try to make their own bath bombs, but they don’t have any citric acid and they didn’t want to go out and get some.  Well, it is in fact possible to make your own bath bombs without the citric acid. The …

Avocado Fries

It may be flat-out sacrilege to deep fry an avocado. However, that’s exactly what I’ve done, and I have to say that I’m so happy that I did so. I took a very healthy food and put an unhealthy spin on it.  I would be more upset about this, except for the fact that these …

Whole Wheat Bread

I’m not sure what it is about wheat bread that makes it such a comfort food for me. In our house we pretty much only buy and eat wheat bread, simply because we prefer the taste.  It’s no more difficult to make a good loaf of wheat bread versus making white bread.  I’ve found that …

Zucchini Mushroom Asian Chicken

Panda Express is one of my favorite spots to eat. We don’t eat there often, since the closest one is in a theme park about 30 minutes from our house, and that park is only open for 5 months out of the year.  Go figure, I was craving Chinese food today. I went to reach …

Whole 30 Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Chili

Wow, that title is a mouthful to type! But this recipe is a mouthful of comfort food deliciousness. I love slow cooker recipes more than any other genre of recipes simply for the fact that very little work is involved.  I made this recipe and portioned out enough for me to eat for a couple …

Salt & Vinegar Kale Chips

I am attempting to eat healthier as we enter 2017. As a result, I’m trying to cut out pasta, bread, sugar, processed foods, and dairy. The problem for me is that I LOVE potato chips and pasta.  I think I’ve found a good alternative to chips. These are crispy and salty and satisfy my crunch …
