I almost hate to admit it, but I’ve grown to be pretty dependent on my Instant Pot. Case in point – last weekend my husband requested our favorite tortilla soup for dinner. That recipe requires TWO types of beans, of which I had ZERO cooked. I pulled out my Instant Pot, made garbanzo beans inClick to Continue »
I like to think that all of my recipes are pretty stinkin’ good, but every now and then I make something and REALLY hit it out of the park. Here’s how I know it’s awesome: I eat the whole thing, by myself. It happened with healthy peanut butter oatmeal cookies and with homemade cheez-it’s andClick to Continue »
After spending WAAAY to long cooking dinner back when we did the Whole30, I felt the need to get back to the basics. I shared our go-to recipe for roasted potatoes, and everyone LOVES them. What’s weird though (although I’m not complaining!!), is that they love this recipe for roasted broccoli just as much!

When we first started the Whole30, I was overwhelmed with how much cooking there was. The inner rebel in me fought back and I gave up on fun side dishes and just let the oven do the work. I roasted EVERYTHING. Every single vegetable I cooked (except for my favorite salad) was put onto aClick to Continue »
Not all fun foods can be fun foods… that’s what I told my kids when they wanted homemade pizza and stove-top macaroni and cheese for dinner and cared less about the pan-seared broccoli I was making. “Perfect example: Mommy doesn’t like cauliflower. To me, it’s not a fun food at all. But I still eatClick to Continue »
Have you heard of cauliflower rice? It was all the rage not too long ago and seems to be the saving grace for those who can’t have grains for one reason or another (like us, while on the Whole30). I learned how to make it early on in this elimination diet, but before I showClick to Continue »
