One Pot Spicy Eggs and Potatoes

One Pot Spicy Eggs and Potatoes

Can you even believe this? That I’m making a spicy ancho chili homemade tomato simmer sauce (whatever you do, don’t look back at the last month of recipes to check if this is my new obsession, but for real please don’t) to cover a crowd […]

Cranberry Apple Sangria

Cranberry Apple Sangria

I think I found my favorite holiday cocktail of 2018. It’s the perfect spiced cocktail with fresh cranberries, apples, oranges, rosemary, cinnamon, star anise and whole cloves. And you can make this ahead of time and let it chill right in the fridge. When ready […]

10 Minute Healthy Cauliflower Rice

10 Minute Healthy Cauliflower Rice

I was shopping at Trader Joe’s the other day and I love to buy this hidden gem. You ready for it? It’s riced cauliflower! (They also have it at Central Market, HEB, Kroger, Tom Thumb ….aka most grocery stores now!)

Apparently they run out of these quickly so I stocked up on 10 of these when I had the chance.

Okay well maybe it was like 12 bags but hey. You can always find a use for cauliflower rice.

But don’t worry. If you don’t have access to a Trader Joe’s, you can easily “rice” the cauliflower yourself using a food processor. It takes like 10 seconds.

And then this fried rice takes just about 10 minutes.

That’s the beauty of using cauliflower instead of rice. Not only is it healthy but you don’t have to wait that 20 or 30 minutes for your rice to cook through.

You can just toss everything together in a pan, give it a stir and add in your seasonings. That’s it!

Easiest thing ever, right?

I should also mention that you can barely tell the difference here. Your picky eaters will be pounding this down without blinking!

Wabi House

Wabi House

I’ve given rave reviews about Wabi House for some time now. The loudest reviews have been to my twenty-something friends because I visit Wabi House no less than once a week. Located in the Lower Greenville area of Dallas; it’s right in my neck of the woods.

Creamy Beef and Shells

Creamy Beef and Shells

I cannot even begin to tell you how much of this pasta I ate on probably 13 different occasions. Well, first, I should tell you that no plating of any kind was involved here. Nope. This is clearly a straight-out-of-the-skillet type dinner. Just grab your […]

FRENCH ONION CHICKEN NOODLE CASSEROLE

FRENCH ONION CHICKEN NOODLE CASSEROLE

So I feel like the end of November/December are pretty much the best months ever. Why? Well, the weather starts to cool down (meaning 60s for us Dallasites) and the chunky sweaters and boots start to come out (no not cowboy boots, well….) That means […]

HOW (AND WHEN) TO FIND MOMENTS TO SLOW DOWN WHEN LIFE GETS CRAZY

HOW (AND WHEN) TO FIND MOMENTS TO SLOW DOWN WHEN LIFE GETS CRAZY

As much as I absolutely love being busy, there’s always a tipping point where life gets a little too crazy. Maybe it’s work or holiday commitments, but I often notice the stress of life will catch up to me after a while if I’m pushing myself too hard…for too long! The worst part? I often can’t find a good time to slow down. When is the right commitment to skip? Or the right work project to say no to? (more…)
