Mexican Pizza

April 30, 2012


Check out the new blog here  I have a couple of questions for you today… Do you like Mexican? Do you like Taco Bell? Do you have leftover lentil taco “meat” or leftover ground beef, turkey, or chicken? Are you trying to decrease your sodium intake? If you answered yes to those questions, then you […]

cheesy bean casserole

March 23, 2012


Check out the new blog here  The end of March is in sight, so I feel like my window to post warm casserole recipes is closing. Therefore, I’m going to try to squeeze in a few more before it gets too hot to even think about turning on the oven. And since it’s a Friday […]

Southwest cornbread

March 2, 2012


On Monday, I posted a recipe for Crock-Pot Pulled Pork. In the picture, there’s some cornbread, and I love cornbread. Cornbread improves every meal.

chicken taquitos

February 2, 2012

Mayonnaise-filled dips, fried wings covered in butter and sauce, or some other high-calorie concoction generally cover the appetizer table. What if you want to have an appetizer that isn’t seriously unhealthy but is […]

my first “real kitchen” salad

January 6, 2012


Check out the new blog here  In the summer before my senior year of college, I lived in Nashville with two of my friends. We rented a nice little 3 bedroom apartment that had a “real kitchen.” Did I say real kitchen? What I meant was a space with barely enough room for one person […]

crock pot chicken tacos

December 15, 2011


Recently, I had a friend ask me for some more slow-cooker recipes.  The slow-cooker lentil soup that I posted in October is the most visited page on the blog, so she’s right that I need more of those recipes on here. She asked Santa for a crock-pot, and I hope she gets one! She is […]
