I LOVE SOUP. Its hearty, full of nutrients, versatile and so easy to make a giant pot and enjoy throughout the week. This soup? Well its in my personal Hall of Fame favorites. My friend Lauren Song made this for me when I visited her while on a Whole30 once and my entire world was changed. I have since changed the recipe, as I tend to do, subbing ground turkey with italian sausage seasoning for the Italian sausage (no pork for me!) and minor tweaks here and there. This is one of those recipes I find myself typing up to send friends constantly, and its honestly one of my favorites to make for dinner guests. These days I have been serving it with a loaf of my homemade crunchy bread (more on the easiest + best recipe later).Read More
Looking for something?
Chicken salad is VERSATILE, which just MAY be my favorite kind of meal. Give me a good base and let me mix it up on the regular with what I have around. It is a great meal prep idea that you can make one day and enjoy throughout the week- simple + fun! You could eat a microwaved chicken breast for lunch if that is your thing, but if you are looking to mix it up then LETS GET TO IT.Read More
That being said, as I have become a healthy adult I have learned so much about BALANCE in health. I refuse to categorize anything that God made for us to eat as “bad”, but do recognize which foods have more or less health benefits and adjust how much or how often I eat them accordingly. Needless to say when I am on a road trip I will partake in some glorious Chick Fil a waffle fries most happily, and I will also gleefully slice moutains of red potatoes on the regular to make these crispy delicious wonders.Read More
Roasted Brussell Sprouts, nice and crispy, with a lemon garlic aioli sauce to dip. Maybe it won’t rock your world, but it sure is rocking mine. Its hearty, its green + tiny things are just cuter.
You can throw other Brussel Sprout Recipes at me, but I am not sure I won't stop eating them like just like this.Read More
This is the recipe that finally spurred me on to create this site. Nothing like a quiche to get the party started, amiright?!
I have had the dream of creating a site to share food with others brewing in my heart and swirling in my head for over a year now. Like a good pot of coffee, I think certain ideas need time to steep and take shape in your head before they can come to life. And, after lots of thinking, lots of notes of ideas, recipes, thoughts and dreams of how this site can be used to encourage others- HERE WE ARE.Read More
