What I’ve been cooking lately

As much as I like developing new recipes, I do like trying new recipes that other people have come up with! I’ve been using a lot of sources for my food prep. Here are some of the things I’ve been cooking lately: For breakfast I’ve […]

Breakfast Sausage Stir-Fry with Spinach, Mushrooms, and Burst Grape Tomatoes

My summer field work has started and I have been so busy. I have been doing a lot of once a week cooking, but it’s just the basics so I haven’t had anything interesting to post lately. I did come up with this savory breakfast […]

Mushroom Series: Slow Cooker Pot Roast with Portabella Mushroom-Onion Gravy

It’s the middle of the semester and naturally I’m swamped with work. I have to come on here and post, however, because cooking and blogging are a source of stress relieving for me! I also have to continue my mushroom series, and the next recipe, […]

Whole 30 Day 2

When I woke up this morning, I was just not hungry, so I worked at home entering Excel data and drank some loose leaf oolong tea. Perhaps my big dinner and snack of cherries at the movie was carrying over. I went to the drive-in […]

Whole 30 Day 1

I had been toying with the idea of doing Whole 30, which is a 30 day period of omitting foods that can negatively impact your health and fitness. I have been doing Paleo/Primal for almost a year now (July 1 is my Paleoversary!), and even […]

Roasted Chicken and Mushrooms with Rosemary and Lemon

Roasted Chicken and Mushrooms with Rosemary and Lemon

Even in West Texas, the chill of fall is starting to creep in the air…at least until midday. It’s time for roasted foods again, and I could not be more happy. I have always loved fall, and I think it’s mainly due to pot roasts, […]
