Sheet Pan Salmon {Super Easy Recipe}

Salmon is a favorite around our house. Super easy, no mess, no fuss salmon.  That’s the way to go when you’ve got 3 boys, school, sports, work, travel, extended family commitments, are always short on time and you can’t eat another fast-food hamburger if your life depended on it. …I could probably fit the fries […]

Oven Roasted Balsamic Brussels Sprouts

Some nights are just roasted brussels sprouts kind of nights.  Last night was one of them.  I know there are all kinds of fancy bacon, cheese, lemon juice add-ons, and goodness knows I love all of them.  But when you’ve got a Costco sized bag you need to quickly roast (read: expiration date quickly approaching) and […]

Southwestern Cobb Salad (with Avocado-Cilantro Lime Dressing) Recipe

Southwestern Chicken & Green Chile Stew

Stew?  In the middle of summer?  Yes, I’ve gotten a case of seasonal identity crisis.  Last week was a scorching 100+ degrees; this week we’re in the mid-80’s and it almost feels chilly! I was also in need of a soup to bring to a sick friend that would freeze well in case she doesn’t […]
