Welcome Foodies!

Whether it's giving a peek of our family homestead, trying a new restaurant, visiting a local farm or whipping up a new recipe, I'll share the experience here with you. I adore ALL. THINGS. FOOD.

Gluten Free Raspberry Cheesecake Bars

Gluten-Free Raspberry Cheesecake Bars

These gluten free raspberry cheesecake bars taste just as sinful as a classic cheesecake, with half the work (and none of the gluten crust)! For the most part, our family is food-allergy free. And even though my husband is diabetic, the ingredients for my recipes don’t change much. We’ve found that his diabetes is managed quite […]

Homemade Cheeseburgers with Alexia Onion Rings

Homemade Cheeseburgers with Alexia Onion Rings

Alexia Foods sponsored this conversation about easy weeknight dinners, like this yummy recipe for homemade cheeseburgers alongside crispy Alexia Onion Rings with Panko Breading and Sea Salt. It seems like every year is busier than the last, especially with the kids getting older, and more and more activities getting added into the mix. I don’t […]

Melted Caprese Crostini

Melted Caprese Crostini

On the weekends I like to keep it simple when it comes to lunch. Just because it’s something easy to fix, however, doesn’t mean I skimp on flavor OR deliciousness. These melted caprese crostini are the perfect savory bite to enjoy all by yourself, or with a crowd! While these melted caprese crostini are great as […]

Queso Couscous with Cheesy Panko Crusted Chicken Tenders

In this case, the challenge from Sargento was to create a recipe using four ingredients to mimic the Chopped challenge. I’m a big fan of Chopped, […]

Slow Cooker BBQ Ribs

Slow Cooker BBQ Ribs with Easy Homemade BBQ Sauce

I’m a big fan of tender and juicy BBQ, especially when it’s been cooked slowly over charcoal all day. Smoky, delicious, and oh-so-good. But for those days where grilling isn’t possible (or you’re just feeling too lazy), a slow cooker – with a hint of broiler at the end – can be your best friend. […]

Creamy Chicken Pasta Bake

Creamy Chicken Pasta Bake

You’ll love this creamy chicken pasta bake – the seared chicken thighs are what makes it! When I was at ALDI last week doing my grocery shopping, I picked up a package of fettuccine nests in the pasta section. They were perfect for shrimp pasta the kids and I had the other evening! Then, last night I decided […]

Chocolate Chip Cookies Made With Coconut Oil

Chocolate chip cookies made with coconut oil are delightful!

Nothing will ever replace a classic chocolate chip cookie made with butter, but I will say this: chocolate chip cookies made with coconut oil have now moved in my top three chocolate chip cookie recipe adaptations. Yes, my foodie friends. They are that tasty. Yesterday I realized the cookie jar was empty, and since whether it’s full […]
