Sugar Snap Peas with Peppers, Onions, and Almonds

I recently joined a friend while she was shopping at Sam’s wholesale club, and walked out with huge bags of fresh veggies. At the time I bought them, I thought I was being such a good money saver, and then I got home and realized […]

Whole 30 Day 4

Whole 30 Day 4

Whole 30 Day 4! Popped out of bed like a daisy today! We had been having some cloudy weather in West Texas (really unusual) and yesterday was finally sunny and I soaked it up like a solar panel! Today was sunny too and that is […]

Spicy Thai Basil Beef

Spicy Thai Basil Beef

I love Thai food, but it’s taken a lot of practice to make decent home versions. I’ve made several curries on this blog, about half of them Thai, and one recipe for one of my favorite dishes basil chicken/beef. My first version was with chicken, […]

Sesame Beef and Broccoli “Lo Mein”

Counting down the days to spring break! I still need to get some work done next week, but perhaps there will be less scheduling. Plus I’m gearing up to go out to the vineyard to do some initial prep for my second field season. I […]

Beef and Kale Stir-Fry

Beef and Kale Stir-Fry

One of my favorite vegetables that’s been at the farmers’ market for several weeks now is kale. I’ve been trying to eat other greens besides spinach since they’re so full of vitamins, and kale has been a nice change. It’s definitely different from spinach because […]

Takeout-style Beef and Mushroom Stir-fry

Being a college student, I am no stranger to takeout. Chinese takeout seems to always sneak into my weekly menu because it’s convenient, sometimes healthful depending on what you choose, inexpensive, and delicious.
