Venison Chili

I have never cooked venison before I made this dish, but I have had venison chili in the past, so when my Dad brought home a bunch of venison from work, I knew I had to try to make a chili.  This dish came out surprisingly good.  I honestly thought the meat would be slightly…

Spinach Paprika Chicken

This recipe was relatively simple and took almost no time to prep and cook- about half an hour.  Totally doable after a long day at work.  Having one of your veg as spinach is a real time saver as it quickly wilts in the pan.  Pair with a grain or another veg of your choice…

Crock Pot Butter Chicken

Nothing is better than making some butter chicken fresh.  However, if you have a busy schedule like I do most of the time, you don’t have 30 minutes to an hour dedicated to cooking once you come home from work if you want to eat at a reasonable hour.  This recipe came out better than…

Garlic Trout

My dad does a lot of fishing and he occassionnaly catches something big enough to bring home and co0k- this was one of those instances.  He brought the fish home already cleaned and deboned, so all we had to do was look up a recipe and cook it!!! We loosely based our recipe off this…

Crock Pot Chicken Musakhan

Every now and then, I get a craving for a certain type of food.  Lately, it’s been greek-style food.  Not sure why or where it came from, but that’s what I’ve been craving.  So expect to see some greek-inspired meals in the upcoming posts! This dish was great because I could throw the chicken in…

Spinach-stuffed Turkey Meatloaf

I was surprised how well this recipe turned out and plan on making it again soon.  This recipe utilized ground turkey, which is great if you are trying to eat more lean meat.  It also incorporates a lot of veggies on the inside, which I love.  As you can see- we had broccoli and mac…

Bacon Bourbon Meatballs

I made these for a holiday party and have made them for several parties since.  They were a real hit- I actually doubled the recipe after I made them the first time because they were gone before I even put them down!  They disappeared even quicker the second time I brought them.  These will be…

The Best Gluten Free Banana Bread

I’ve never seen banana bread get eaten so fast in my life.  Once the oven was turned off, you could hear everyone in the house coming to the kitchen and this baby was sliced before it was even slightly cool. (Which I don’t recommend by the way- definitely try to let it cool, then slice…

Coconut Lime Skillet Chicken

The flavors in this recipe will definitely knock you out of the park.  They remind me of the flavors in my Thai Coconut Curry Soup– mainly because they share many of the same ingredients. This meal is really quick to take- 3o minutes or less- which makes it a great meal to make when you…

Paleo Wraps

Let’s be honest -most gluten free wraps taste like complete crap.  They fall apart, they taste gluten free.  Nothing anyone wants to be a part of. Your world is about to change. These wraps are beyond delicious and they are super easy to make.  The first one I made didn’t come out great, but I…

Harvest Linguine

Does anyone not love pasta?  Well, I love pasta and I’m always looking for new things to do to it.  Even though homemade sauce and meatballs/sausage can never get boring, I wanted to incorporate some more veggies and seasonal ingredients into a pasta dish.  In comes this harvest linguine recipe I picked up off a…

Stuffed Bell Peppers

Stuffed bell peppers are always a great option.  You can even make them ahead the night before, then pop them in the oven.  Stuffed bell peppers is one of those recipes I kind of forget about- not sure why- but then I make it again and realize I need to make it more often.  You…
