Veggie Loaded Macaroni and Cheese

Who doesn’t love a good bowl of mac and cheese? No one I know (or want to know, ha). Of course, macaroni and cheese is not exactly health food – shocking news I know. But this version of homemade mac and cheese incorporates three veggies so you can feel a little better about eating it… Read More >

Apple Fritter Bread

Mmmm, a recipe for a homemade bread that tastes like an apple fritter donut. As soon as I saw the recipe, I had to make it. Any sort of semi-dessert masquerading around as breakfast is usually not what I’m craving in the morning; I’m more of a salty/savory breakfast girl. But donuts are an exception… Read More >

Raspberry Crumb Muffins

I enjoy muffins as much as the next person, but sometimes I feel like they are too sweet. Whether you get them at a grocery store or a bakery, they are more reminiscent of cake than breakfast. Not that I’m against dessert for breakfast per se, but when you want to feel like you’re providing… Read More >

Chicken Tikka Masala Crockpot Recipe

Chicken tikka masala is probably my favorite Indian dish but I’ve never tried to make it myself. I stumbled upon a crockpot recipe and thought this was the perfect opportunity to do so.
