Here is one of my recipes from my first attempt at once a week cooking. The inspiration for this recipe was from a salad I had at a new Tex-Mex restaurant in town called Chuy’s. It was a chicken salad with fajita meat, but one […]

Grain-Free Sweet Potato Crisp

I’m so glad to be back in Indiana with my family. I haven’t been home in a long time, and I really deserved a break. I made it through my tough semester, doing really well, if I might add. I got my dissertation proposal and […]
