Slow Cooker Eggplant Parmigiana

I’ve done eggplant “lasagna” in the oven before with marinara and cheese, and it’s been decent. But this, this is truly amazing, and will even impress those who don’t like eggplant. I promise! I have a crock pot cooking confession – I’m not a fan of using sodium-laden cans of soup, but this method makes up so […]

Shepherd’s Pie you won’t be able to get enough of!

Since we brought Sweet P home, most of our dinners have been either tacos, spaghetti, soup or chili. The rotation of recipes had gotten pretty sparse and limited to what I could do quickly and without a special trip to the grocery store. But, since she is eating and sleeping better now I’ve finally started […]


Recipe: Cauliflower Orecchiette

I’ve really enjoyed the recipes in Julie Kaufmann’s book, Not […]


Garlic-Pepper Grilled Chicken & Roasted Veggies

This is a pretty typical meal in our house, which I’ve modified to make Whole30 compatible. Although there’s some prep work, it’s just cutting veggies and marinating the chicken – the last steps are super easy and can be done quickly in the evening rush. I used to marinate my grilled chicken in store-bought caesar dressing, but […]


12 Things to Do With Leftover Chili

Making (and eating) chili is one of my favorite things about winter. Not only is it ridiculously easy to throw everything in the crockpot in the morning, but it makes a ton of food on the cheap, and it tastes so good! We recently made a batch of chili, and when I was about to […]
