buffalo chicken pasta

Things are a little crazy at my house right now. We are getting ready to get new kitchen appliances! I probably haven’t been this excited to get something in a very long time. Ah, being an adult is glorious. There is some serious prep work that is going down and of course we’re doing it…

Sarah’s Simple Chili

My mind is telling me no, but my stomach, my stomach is telling me yes. That’s what R. Kelly would sing about eating chili in August. I have been CRAVING chili something awful the last two weeks. It’s been an oddly cool August here in Missouri. Of course it’s cool one day and then blazing…

beef tips and noodles

Beef Tips and Noodles is one of my all-time favorite meals and has been ever since I was little. There is something about the combination of the meat chunks and noodles in a creamy sauce that I just love! I have been making this dish for years and just recently added a change, I made…

Pizza. Zucchini. Boats

I have been hearing about replacing pizza crust with cauliflower and substituting pasta noodles with zucchini everywhere lately. I thought, well I love pizza and I love pasta. If it’s not broke don’t fix it! But then after some research and realization….eh maybe it’s broken just a little. So I decided to give the zoodles…

80/20

This summer I decided to make a huge lifestyle change. I have immersed myself in learning about natural foods, healthy foods, processed foods and sugar. All I have to say is, MIND BLOWN. I cannot believe all the things that I was eating that were so bad for me. If you are unaware or don’t…

– seasonings –

So long prepackaged taco and fajita seasonings! Did you know that you more than likely have all of the ingredients you need to make these seasonings yourself in your spice cabinet? I didn’t until I happened to stumble upon this fajita seasoning recipe the other day. It is paleo and Whole 30 approved, which makes…

I Want to ‘Taco Bout It’

I love love love love love Mexican food. It however tends to not be so fond of me. Since starting my clean eating journey I have been searching for recipes that are still the foods I used to always eat but the healthy and clean version. My goal is to “eat clean” throughout the week…

Sweet Potato Sunday

Sundays are quickly becoming my favorite day of the week. The last few Sundays we have gone to church and then spent the rest of the day working in our yard. It is really starting to come along and Danny and I really enjoy doing it! The weeds are finally starting to die, the new…

shrimp and zucchini stir-fry

I am happy to report that “clean out the fridge week” is OVER! Whew! I refuse to let food go to waste and I felt like we were due for a clean sweep but things were getting a little scarce by Saturday! We went to an event called Rock N Ribs Saturday afternoon and let…

loaded chicken alfredo pizza

This week has been very enjoyable! I find that I am in my best moods when I do the following; spend time with family and friends, get a full 8 hours of sleep, do something for someone else, laugh uncontrollably, eat delicious food and get some good ol’ fresh air. I have managed to get…

A Southern Sunday

What an awesome weekend we had! Danny and I had a ball all weekend long (I swear we are just a couple of kids). On Friday night we went out for Mexican with some friends from out of town and I ate my weight in chips and salsa. If you ever find yourself in Springfield,…

The Stone Has Been “Rolled” Away

Happy Easter! Ok maybe I am a day late and a dollar short but let me tell ya about our Easter! We had such an awesome Easter weekend! Danny’s family came down on Saturday and we spent the evening eating awesome food and enjoying each other’s company. Sunday morning we all met up with my…
