Chicken Teriyaki with Zoodles

Have you ever made zoodles before? If you haven’t because you’ve been intimated, don’t be! As long as you have the right tools (preferably a spiralizer, which can be found on Amazon for as little as $9.99!), they are prepped in a matter of minutes. I do recommend, however, Continue reading


Oatmeal Banana Pancakes

Yesterday my family and I had the most perfect day. We spent the morning running errands, came home and took a couple hours to rest individually, and spent the afternoon outside playing with our new pressure washer and barbecuing. Once we finished dinner I decided I wanted something sweet, so I whipped up some fresh cream and some Bisquick shortbread biscuits with some rosemary for the cream to melt on. It was delicious!

Easy Vegetable Fajitas

Ok. Real talk for a minute. While 2016 has been a mess for the rest of the world, for me and my family it has probably been the most rewarding year ever. My husband was away for work for four months which I thought was going to kill our relationship, but it only made it stronger. I took a leap and left a job that peaked my anxiety only to find an even better work opportunity not even a month later. We bought our first house and it is perfect. My daughter is a threenager and it is difficult and awesome all the same time.

Oh, and this is the first summer in three years that I have actually stuck to my goal of running as many 5Ks as I can. And I love it.

Now that things are settling down here, I thought I’d make a little blog post about my favorite ever vegetable fajitas. We love these for a light meal that is quick and easy to throw together. They are also easy to prep in advance so you can share them with a friend and/or have dinner ready for the next day!

I started the meal with four sliced bell peppers Continue reading

Spinach Stuffed Pasta Shells

I love pasta. Like LOVE pasta. I’m pretty  sure it’s just the carbs. They are so delicious. And the more people tell me I shouldn’t have them, the more I want them. So, I’m just going to cure everyone’s carb obsession here: stop listening to people you can’t eat carbs! Eat them, and eat a lot of them! (Now, if you’re like me, that would get you to eat less carbs because you hate people telling you what to do).
