Fresh Corn Soup with Avocado Salsa

Fresh Corn Soup with Avocado Salsa

Corn season is getting closer and I can feel it in my midwestern bones. Straight off a freshly grilled cob is my favorite way to eat corn, but I make do with all other forms when ears aren’t available. Frozen and canned get me through every season that’s not corn season. This soup is ultra […]

Southwest Turkey Skillet

One pan dinners are king around here, both for ease of dinner making and dinner cleaning up. We especially like one pan dinners that require no advanced food prep and get on the table quickly, and this southwest turkey skillet checks all of those boxes! If a sweet potato hash and a turkey chili had […]

Restaurant-Style Salsa

Homemade Restaurant-Style Salsa

Many a time in my life, I have sat in a Mexican restaurant filling up on chips and salsa long before my meal has arrived. I have even sometimes been the obnoxious person who requests salsa refills after the waiter has stopped offering them and the thought has crossed my mind that this restaurant is for sure losing money on me. But I […]

Thai Basil Chicken

Thai Basil Chicken

Every year for the past three years, a meat cleaver has been on both my birthday and Christmas lists. I’m pretty sure people think I’m joking about wanting a meat cleaver. I AM SO SERIOUS. I also would like to submit this recipe as evidence that I would actually use a meat cleaver. (Please reiterate […]

Chicken Bog

Chicken Bog - One Dish Chicken and Rice

This is a comfort food meal that is also a one-dish dinner, so is a WIN on all counts in my book. If the name of this recipe has you wondering, “since when can you eat a bog?”, I really don’t know. Southern Living says this is called a bog. And bog feels mysteriously Southern […]

Turkey Lettuce Wraps

30 Minute Turkey Lettuce Wraps

Lettuce wraps! I love lettuce wraps. LOVE THEM. They’ve got that tacoesque feel when eating (fun, laid-back, also maybe a little upscale), but are filled with gingery, sweet, tangy, crunchy goodness! Lettuce wraps also allow me to get my water chestnut fill without Husband knowing. I could eat water chestnuts straight out of the can. […]

Mini Pepperoni Pizzas with Homemade Pizza Sprinkle

Individual Pepperoni Pizzas with Homemade Pizza Sprinkle

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I am EXCITED. I love Valentine’s Day not only for breaking up the monotony of some very bleak and blustery winter months, but also for being a super cute holiday that I think is equally enjoyable for kids and adults. You should know that homemade pizza with […]

30 Minute Black Bean Soup

We have a salsa problem in our house. We continue to buy new jars of salsa, open them, eat 75% of the salsa, put the unfinished jar in the fridge, and restart the cycle. Which means our fridge is constantly filling up with mostly-empty salsa jars. Corn salsas, chipotle salsas, regular chunky salsas, green salsas. […]

Weeknight Cassoulet

Shortcut Cassoulet Recipe

I should confess that I’ve never had actual cassoulet. I did live in France, but all that really means here is that I can spell “cassoulet” without having to look up “how to spell cassoulet”. Traditional cassoulet has been on my bucket list of things to make for many, many years now.  My knowledge of […]

Baked Chicken Shawarma

Isn’t it funny how quickly things can become comfort food? Before living in Michigan, my Ohio-grown tastebuds had never experienced chicken shawarma. Early on in Husband’s law school years, we discovered a Mediterranean restaurant that was legit cheaper than fast food, just as fast as fast food, and (the best part!) en route home from […]
