How is memorial day THIS weekend? I swear wasn’t it just March and we were told to stay home. This spring sure has sped by and I have 0 clues what I’ve done with my time. I’m kidding I’ve luckily gotten a lot done at home as with a new house- projects never end! Anyways if you are feeling me like lately…a little down in the kitchen area (read: lots of take-out because I’m too tired to unload the dishwasher) this Greek-style couscous salad is super easy to put together and packs quite the flavor punch! Extra points it looks super pretty too!
Labor day may have come and gone, but I am still here holding onto the last bits of summer. Or rather holding on to my last glass of cold rosé (and you can pry it from my cold dead hands’, Brett). Continue reading
Summer is so super busy for us this year. We have a lot going on. Even to the point where we barely have time to sit down for meal all together let alone even be home for dinner. I feel like nomads in our house. The garden is going well but honestly, hasn’t been as good as it could be (update soon!). We’ve been traveling and working on other projects that it’s been overtaken by some pests. Nothing too bad, we are still getting more than enough produce we want, just maybe not as visually pleasing.
Anyways, one of my favorite things to throw together on a busy summer night are these salmon foil packs. They take minutes to put together and require essentially no cooking skills or time. Just throw them in the oven or on the grill and –blam- done.
Happy Spring!! I swear it felt like it would never get here. My birthday is the beginning of May and it’s always hit or miss for the weather. Some years it can mean I finally bust out my dresses and sandals and this year…I broke out my heavy winter sweaters! Yikes!
Just because it’s cold out doesn’t mean the fun has to stop? I know Mexican food CAN be associated with summertime, fresh limes, margaritas in the sun…ugh, now I’m just depressing myself since we have a long month ahead. But what better way to cheer me up than an unexpected savory dish! Spring is just around the corner!! I SWEAR. Continue reading
Finally, it’s happening! Man, this simple recipe had so many of you blowing up my Instagram. Sliding into my DM’s, if you will, in a non-creepy way. I’m not complaining, I love getting feedback and getting to know what people want to see. It just surprised me as this meal is so easy to throw together. 99% of the time this is my “I need to get dinner on the table in under 30 min” meal, so I always have the ingredients on hand.
I told you fall recipes were coming. Now that the chill has really started to set in (I won’t complain- summer held on for a while) I have busted out all my big hit fall recipes in the last few weeks. Brett doesn’t know what has hit him- we go from fresh salads and grilled chicken to straight up soups, stews, pot roasts.
I’m. READY. for. you. fall. Continue reading
