Sheet Pan Fajitas

Sheet Pan Fajitas

Mexican food is pretty much my love language. I can’t seem to get enough of the big, bold, spicy flavors that are notorious with this type of cuisine. But then I seem to find myself wondering why exercise isn’t making a difference in my pants […]

Sweet Dark Cherry ((+ Almond)) Yogurt Smoothie

Sweet Dark Cherry ((+ Almond)) Yogurt Smoothie

This little smoothie has recently become my favorite quick breakfast — it’s pretty much the best smoothie I’ve ever had! And because I can control the amount of added sugar, I feel like this smoothie is actually a healthy choice! It has a short list of […]

Mom’s Perfect Pot Roast

Mom’s Perfect Pot Roast

When I think of pot roast, I have two memories:

First, as a kid, I kind of dreaded “pot roast” Sunday because sometimes (not always) the pot roast was so tough and dry. It was those tough & dry occasions that made me dislike roast altogether. 

Second, it always seemed so complicated. Pre-browning, seasoning, flour, peeling veggies, grease splatter on the stovetop and a looming smell of roast in my hair as I sit in the pew at church.  (more…)

My New Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

My New Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

“I’ve never met a chocolate chip cookie I didn’t like”? Chewy, crisp, cakey, thin — doesn’t matter as long as there’s chocolate involved?! Well, I love a good chocolate chip cookie – but I prefer a great chocolate chip cookie … don’t you? My favorite […]

Crispy Oven-Roasted Salt & Pepper Chicken + Veggies

Crispy Oven-Roasted Salt & Pepper Chicken + Veggies

I promised a series of lighter recipes all intended to help in the efforts of getting back into all of the clothes hanging in my closet. Then I had the idea to teach myself how to make bread.

*CopyCat* Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

*CopyCat* Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

This yummy, cream-based vegetarian tomato soup is a perfect copycat rendition of the tomato basil soup at a little place I came to love during my time in Dallas ((La Madeleine)). I first came across La Madeleine while getting my Master’s at SMU and thanks to it’s proximity to campus – not only did I get a Master’s degree, I also became very familiar with the taste their signature soup.

Triple Yolk Dinner Rolls w/ Melted Butter & Sea Salt

Triple Yolk Dinner Rolls w/ Melted Butter & Sea Salt

Until today, I had never attempted homemade ((yeast)) dinner rolls. But thanks to the gray, overcast sky and potential for freezing rain, I decided to stay in and give “becoming a bread maker” my best effort.

Million Veggie Soup

To call it “panic mode” may be a little extreme. It’s more like “pressured purpose mode” — 

Brown Sugar & Mustard Glazed Smoked Pork Tenderloin

Brown Sugar & Mustard Glazed Smoked Pork Tenderloin

Lately, around my dinner table, we are all loving smoked pork tenderloin. Here is another recent recipe I shared (Rosemary Smoked Pork Tenderloin). Pork tenderloin can handle a wide range of flavors, is fairly lean and is much more grocery-budget friendly! In addition to all of those pros, it’s also so easy to prepare. (more…)
