Spinach Artichoke Pizza

I love pizza.  If there was a food that I could eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner it would be pizza.  I used to be strictly a pepperoni pizza girl, then I expanded to Canadian bacon and pineapple, and finally came the vegetarian pizza.  In Bulgaria, I had a pizza with a fried egg in […]

Delicata Squash Soup

What is delicata squash? I had my first introduction to it just this fall.  I understand it is easy to grow, maybe it is the next new butternut.

Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Over Rice

I’ve made this hawaiian bbq chicken before. It’s delicious, and easy, and it’s got just the perfect combination of sweet and tangy flavors. I edited the recipe ever so slightly from last time, with the same ingredients, but there are slightly different amounts and they are added at slightly different times now to keep the […]

One Pan Chicken Alfredo Pasta

When I first saw this one pan chicken alfredo from No 2 Pencil, I knew it was something I had to make soon and so I added it to my Pinterest “Noodles” board and like things often do on Pinterest, it stays there for a while. But, I will say I am not one of those […]

Mexican Pizza

This Mexican pizza is easy to make and tastes delicious. Its so easy because the “crust” is made from tortillas. The rest of the ingredients are just like normal taco ingredients, seasoned taco meat, refried beans, cheese, olives, tomatoes and lettuce.  The combination comes together perfectly. And the toasted crunchy tortillas make it even better […]

Zucchini Lasagna

As I’m sure you have also seen, I have been seeing zucchini lasagna all over pinterest lately. I knew that because we have zucchini growing in our garden, this was something I needed to make with some of the zucchini. This recipe is slightly adapted from Skinny Taste’s zucchini lasagna But then it has been […]

Creamy Tomato Pasta with Squash and Chicken

I have been enjoying going through old recipe posts and remaking them.  I have been remaking them so that I can take new pictures, but the ones I have remade first are the ones I remember loving the most the first time I made them. As a food blogger, I don’t often make the same meals […]

Grapefruit Avocado Salad

A couple of weeks ago, I joined a CSA (community supported agriculture) group.  In other words I became a member of a community farm, committing to purchasing a box of fresh, locally grown, organic vegetables and fruits weekly.  It has been a interesting experience – receiving different vegetables that I have to look on the […]

Last week was Nate and my wedding anniversary. We have been married for 3 years. Wahoo! So to celebrate we went to a nice restaurant on Friday, and stayed in a hotel in the “city” (Salt Lake City), because we feel giddy like little kids when we stay in a hotel we of course swam […]

Chicken Salad

In my church we have activities to unite the members and promote friendship.  Sometimes those activities are on Sunday right after church; these activities have received various names – “Break the Fast”, “Linger Longer” and “Munch and Lunch”.  Almost every church activity involves food, particularly pot luck.

Crock Pot BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches

I have learned to love pulled pork since I worked at Legends Grille on BYU campus. One of my favorites was my altered Cubano sandwich – because I didn’t really like pickles or mustard I would make it with the pulled pork, ham, swiss cheese and top it all with barbeque sauce. We got 50% […]
