Maple Roasted Carrots

Hi everyone!! I hope you all are well. I have a new and easy recipe for you today! I developed this recipe while suffering from cabin fever during the shutdown (which is now over – woohoo!!!). I have a minor (okay, major) sweet tooth and it calls out to me when I work from home. I can silence my sweet tooth when I only work from home once a week. However, it started to become a problem when I was working at home on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday! To curb this I created an awesome new side dish, which I had for lunch on Monday.

The Best Black Beans Ever

Hi everyone!! I hope you all have had a nice week! For those of you who are curious about how my argument on Monday went, Sarah and I successfully argued for the defense and won!!! High five!!!

So I know “The Best Black Beans Ever” is quite a cocky title, but seriously – this recipe makes THE BEST BLACK BEANS EVER!!! I have always loved black beans, in fact when I was younger I got made fun of for ordering black bean soup as an entrée at a Mexican restaurant. What can I say? They’re awesome!

I originally saw this recipe in my new favorite cookbook, It’s All Good, but I made a few changes. Mostly, I just reduced the amount of oil to bring down the overall fat content! Believe me, you don’t need a ton of fat to make these beans awesome – the trick is to cook them over low heat for at least fifteen minutes to get a deeper flavor.

Squash Frittata

Congratulations on surviving your first week to everyone who headed back to school and work this week! Getting back into the swing of things and adjusting to new schedules can be hard, but I have faith that we’ll all adapt! This week was super busy for me, mostly trying to figure out how to balance working full days on Monday and Wednesday with school work. I had planned on making something more elaborate for you guys, but instead I’m sharing what I like to call a “nothing in the fridge” easy weeknight meal.

            CIMG1219

Hi guys! I have a new recipe for you today! This past year I found myself sticking to some of my old favorites like broiled pork chops, blackened tilapia, roasted veggies, turkey burgers, and crock pot pulled chicken and pork. I did find some new favorites though and this recipe is one of them!

Summer Vegetable Pie

One of the reasons I love summer is because all my favorite vegetables are in season. I love to roast squash and zucchini year round, but sometimes you just need to switch things up! I was inspired by a gratin on Kath’s blog, but didn’t want to add a ton of cheese to my vegetable side. Luckily, my experiment worked! This is definitely my new favorite way to enjoy summer veggies!
