Recipe Scrapbook | Inspiration on Monday

Recipe Scrapbook | Inspiration on Monday

Do you have a giant stack of printed recipes in your kitchen? I did–they were all shoved in a folder and I’d have to sort through them every time I wanted to cook a favorite recipe. I’d then have the piece of paper in the midst of my cooking and the page would eventually become so stained that I’d have to reprint it. I suppose the easy solution is to just look up the recipe online […]

Teriyaki Glazed Salmon

Teriyaki Glazed Salmon

Fish is something I don’t cook often. I don’t really know how to buy good fish or where to buy it. I don’t know what to look for or even really how to cook it. I enjoy fish (I don’t love it, unless it’s sushi), but I do really like salmon. It wasn’t until Scott and I had been married for several years that I came across this easy looking Teriyaki Glazed Salmon recipe and first cooked […]

The 21 Day Sugar Reset Results

The 21 Day Sugar Reset Results

  Two weeks ago I shared my first week on the Sugar Reset I am doing with Lisa. Saturday is the last day of the challenge (yes, we timed this so we could be “free” on Easter), so I thought I would share my final reflections. If you’re just catching up, this 21-day Sugar Reset was more or less based on the 21 Day Sugar Detox. For 21 days, Lisa and I cut out all processed […]

21 Day Sugar Reset – First Week Update

21 Day Sugar Reset – First Week Update

    If you visited the blog last week (or follow me on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram) then you know that today completes my first week of a 21 Day Sugar Reset (#SugarReset). I’m following along the basic rules of the 21 Day Sugar Detox with Lisa and wanted to share my week of meals as well as some initial thoughts. If you’re curious about the term “reset” rather than “detox,” we decided that it […]

Cook it Up! A Cookbook Challenge Link-up 8

  Welcome to the last edition of Cook It Up. Whomp whomp. A BIG HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who participated over the past 8 months. I loved seeing your posts about which cookbooks you were pulling off the shelves and it was fun for me to focus on a cookbook each month as well (which was the original goal). This will be the last edition of Cook It Up, BUT I’m trading it for another link-up […]

The Magic of Roasted Veggies

The Magic of Roasted Veggies

    A few years ago I had a huge breakthrough when it came to cooking veggies. ROASTING! The first time I made roasted cauliflower, I called my mom up and asked why she never cooked cauliflower this way for us when we were growing up. Because OMG it tastes so much better than steamed cauliflower. I can’t remember now what prompted me to roast my veggies rather than steam them, but dinner sides have […]

My New Kitchen Beauty

My New Kitchen Beauty

Behold my new kitchen beauty: Every year my mom asks what I would like for Christmas and my response is always that I don’t need anything. This is mostly true–I can generally either buy what I need or go without. But, I put on my thinking cap and as I was cooking one day I realized that what I really need is something that I don’t need at all: a dutch oven. Ok, more specifically […]
