Greek Pork Kabobs with Orzo and Feta Pesto

Does anyone else believe that when you dream about a person who has passed away, it’s their way of visiting from heaven? My Yiayia has been in so many of my dreams lately – I think it’s her way of bringing me comfort and easing the heartache I sometimes feel when I think about her […]

Mediterranean Tuna Melts

Working from home means I need to continuously be creative in the kitchen with the foods I make for lunch. We have options near us, but it’s nice to eat food at home and it saves me money throughout the week. To stop myself from getting the itch to drive over to a fast casual, […]

Grilled Shrimp & Pepper Jack Grits

Oh, the things we sacrifice for good meals… calories, sticky fingers and stomachaches to name a few, and my least favorite – ┬átouching slimy uncooked poultry or fish. A couple of weeks ago when we hosted my daughter’s two-tti fruity second birthday party, my mother-in-law came over to help me prep. One of the things […]

Grilled Corn with Spiced Butter & Cotija Cheese

I love the concept of Mexican street corn, but cannot get over the fact that it has mayo on it because let’s be real, mayo is the worst. I despise it so much that I’ll proactively ask if sandwiches have mayo on them at restaurants because I know my meal will be ruined if even […]

Healthy Cauliflower Rice Burrito Bowl

I’ve had to stay away from rice this entire pregnancy because it hasn’t settled well with me, which is a bummer because I’m a huge fan of brown rice. To top it off, rice (and rice flour) is in so many foods/dishes I like, my favorite being burrito bowls. Have you ever had a burrito […]

Baked Greek Fries

It’s national French fry day! If our daughter knew what food holidays were, this would absolutely be one of her favorites. Fries are her best friend. I’m not joking. We have to hide them whenever we make them or eat out to ensure she’ll eat the rest of her meal. She’s a very dedicated fry […]

Southern Breakfast Bowl with Goat Cheese Grits and Biscuits

I’m going to start this post off with a big old hey ya’ll, because the recipe I’m about to share is full of southern flavor and comfort. I’ll preface by saying this is not your typical breakfast bowl. It’s nowhere near healthy and absolutely full of carbs, bacon grease and cheesy goodness, but it’s worth […]

Cinnamon Sugar Square Marshmallow Treats

I’m not much of a traditionalist when it comes to food. There are certain dishes I’d never want to change, but for the most part, I find a lot of happiness trying meals and/or desserts that add unexpected ingredients or flavors to a recipe. It’s such an experience for my taste buds when I find […]
