Marinated Baby Cucumber Salad

Marinated Baby Cucumber Salad

Saturday night I stopped at the store to quickly pick up some ingredients for dinner. Just some ground beef and a vegetable…which of course turned into me needing a cart because I bought all sorts of other things I thought I “had” to have…at any […]

Paleo Tilapia Tacos

Paleo Tilapia Tacos

Since coming home, I have been doing so much cooking, which has made me so happy! It’s nice to take a little break and do those activities that make me really happy. One recipe I prepared this week was a variation from The Paleo Diet […]

Wheat Berry Salad with Black Beans and Mango

Wheat Berry Salad with Black Beans and Mango

With most days for the past few weeks being over the 100 degree mark, my desire to heat up the kitchen as waned. My research project has taken off too, and I spend almost every day out in the vineyard. Spending most days out in […]

Piccole Torta Pasqualina con Morels (Mini Easter Pies with Morels)

I recently received an email from the folks at Marx Foods to contribute to their Morel Recipe Challenge. I was happy to participate, especially since morels are nearly impossible to come by now that I live in Texas. Back home in Indiana, thanks, to the […]

Potato-Cheddar Croquettes

Potato-Cheddar Croquettes

 One of my favorite websites is bodyrock.tv, which has great quick (and intense) workouts and healthy recipes. I have been very busy lately and I enjoy doing their quick workouts because I can (attempt to do) them in a short amount of time and get […]

Chicken, Carrot, and Kale Stir-fry with Sweet Chili-Garlic Sauce

I don’t know if it’s the cold weather or ease of readiness, but lately I have been eating soup at least once a day (either lunch of dinner). Don’t get me wrong, I love soup. However, on a recent shopping trip to get a microwave […]

Beef Vegetable Soup

Beef Vegetable Soup

For a borderline adventure this past weekend, I tried a new local branch of grocery stores instead of the usual Wal-Mart. I definitely prefer local markets to Wal-Mart because they usually have interesting sales going on. The grocery store, United, seems local to the Texas […]

Slow-Cooked Minestrone

Slow-Cooked Minestrone

When my parents came down to Georgia for my graduation and move, I was glad to have some of minestrone soup on hand, which is hearty and affordable. This recipe is derived from a recipe by Ellie Krieger, featured in the 2010 Food Network magazine. […]

Western Trails Chili

Western Trails Chili

I’m going to be working to post a big back-log of recipes prepared between November and December, which was a busy period of time for me. Many of the recipes I need to post were made while I was still living in Georgia. I’ve just […]

Balsamic and Garlic Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Sweet Potatoes, and Onions

Balsamic and Garlic Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Sweet Potatoes, and Onions

One of my favorite ways to prepare vegetables is to roast them because the vegetables caramelize, which adds another dimension of flavor. This preparation method is particularly useful for vegetables that are highly disliked, such as Brussels sprouts. The cruciferous flavor of the sprout melts […]
