On Ribeye & Ramen Stir Fry

Dear readers, UPDATE 2022 AGAIN!!! Ya’ll, I have found the PERFECT Ramen Noodles for any and all future stir fry recipes and a WAY better sauce, so my recipe is adjusted below (though bear in mind, the ribeye is still the better meat option, but I couldn’t find it this time – so is life)….

On Elotes

Dear readers, Have I already told you that if it were possible to be made of a food that I would be a taco? No? Well…maybe, I’m sure I’ve mentioned my taco obsession at least once or twice…well, I have a wee confession to make. I would also likely be made of elotes too, or…

On Seared Salmon & Charred Corn Salsa

Dear readers, I’m sorry I missed out a recipe two weeks ago, but worry not! This week is a seafood focused double feature! Plus, it was my birthday two weeks ago and we had a ton of things going on! My parents came to visit us for my birthday weekend, and then we had to…

On Roasted Asparagus, Corn, and Spinach Salad

Dear readers, As a follow up to the last post, I have another vegan/veggie friendly salad for your viewing and eating pleasure! When we agreed to host the birthday festivities, originally, the plan had been to order food for delivery/do the ever generic-Costco run, but given that the birthday man and a handful of our…

On Creamed Corn & Potato Chowder

Dear readers, I know it’s spring time, but I have ANOTHER SOUP!! I don’t know why, but I have been seriously soup obsessed, and given a lot of times I make a couple new things every week, we’re just on backlog now. This one was really easy to make, can be totally vegetarian (skip the…

On Butter Cajun Shrimp & Veggies

Dear readers, What a couple of months readers…in case you’re not following me on Instagram, or just didn’t know in general, I changed jobs at the beginning of the month! My day job is in legal marketing, so I said goodbye to the firm I joined the month following my wedding in 2018, to join…

On the Easiest Chicken Fiesta Salad

Dear readers, Happy New Year! The past two weeks Frankie & I (and Floyd) were enjoying the very snowy mountains of Breckinridge, Colorado with Frankie’s family. Floyd made the trip because we are still in the middle of potty training this one (for the record: Wired Haired Pointing Griffs are one of the HARDEST breeds…

On Roasted Corn & Tomato Soup

Dear readers, I’m on a super soup binge right now, which seems appropriate given the time of year we’re in (happy early Thanksgiving to my fellow Americanas)! I’ve adjusted this one a few times because the first time, I left the skin of my tomatoes on, and really didn’t like it. So I tried without…

On Jalapeno Corn Bake

OMG readers – so I know fresh corn is out of season right now, BUT this was one of the easiest and most delicious things I’ve ever made veggie side wise. Legit put everything into ONE baking dish, mix, bake, mix again, eat. SO. DELICIOUS! SO. EASY! This was so very tasty and easy to…

On Creole Shrimp & Corn

I feel like my weekends are spent not cooking, which is awesome in its own way, so again, while this might look intimidating, you can definitely throw this together on the fly. I think in total this recipe only took me about 30 minutes total to cook up, and the most labor-intensive piece was just…

On Shrimp Boil Foil Packets

Adulting is hard. But of course it is…I don’t think anyone has ever woken up and said that being an adult in our current world was easy, especially when you’re part of the world that lives paycheck to paycheck and/or has a bunch of student loans that don’t seem to really go anywhere…the last few…

On Copy Cat Chipotle Burrito Bowl

I, like many, enjoy a meal from Chipotle every once in a while, but as I was home and wanting to make take out in my own kitchen, I thought, there has to be a way to make Chipotle at home. And, of course, there is! Sure, it’s not IDENTICAL, but we got pretty darn close!…
