For our Sunday recipe, I wanted to incorporate a vegetarian meal. My husband and I have been trying vegetarian for 2 weeks. He and his co-workers made a pact to try it and determine later if it impacted their overall health. I’ve been wanting to hop on board with more meatless meals and nutrient-dense foods.Continue reading “Buffalo Cauliflower and Sweet Potato Fries”

Changing The Way We Look At Food

Recently as my husband has been taking classes to become an EMT, he’s thinking more about the human body. He usually feels sluggish and groggy. Like a good wife, I remind him that he can’t be eating highly processed foods/snack and feel energetic. So after he saw a documentary about animal consumption and health issues,Continue reading “Changing The Way We Look At Food”

Mouth-watering Mac and Cheese (With Butternut Squash)

I’m so excited about this recipe! You may remember a recipe I shared with you all a couple years back. It contained remnants of the “yucky” dinner that my kids couldn’t even stomach.

Better Than Chicken Nuggets

Frugal and healthy meals often don’t go hand-in-hand. Sometimes it’s cheaper to cook some hot dogs and mac and cheese. But those boring foods aren’t packed with flavor or nutrition. But here’s a healthy version of chicken nuggets that are better for you, more affordable, more filling, and taste 1,000x better! An average bag ofContinue reading “Better Than Chicken Nuggets”

Crescent Roll Recipe

For Thanksgiving we have three lunches/dinners. I’m making pumpkin pie, cranberry salad, and crescent rolls. I even have a bottle of Pino Grigio to bring to one! But I’m a fan of making things from scratch especially for special events and holidays. I vividly remember the smell of fresh cinnamon rolls and crescent rolls fromContinue reading “Crescent Roll Recipe”
