Rustic Balsamic Eggplant (Whole30)

If you are new, we are huge about shopping at Aldi. In fact, shopping the cheapest store is one of my biggest points in How to Meal Plan/Shop/Prep on a Budget. But I’ve got to be honest about something: we occassionally get sick of the produce […]

Dairy Free Creamy Bacon Spinach Pasta

Dairy Free Creamy Bacon Spinach Pasta

My hubby craving comfort food strikes again! In case you missed it, a couple of days ago he made up (with a little help) a dairy free sausage gravy. Biscuits and gravy are one of his favorite foods. Another favorite food? Creamy pastas. The issue […]

Three Ingredient Roasted Carrots

Three Ingredient Roasted Carrots

I have always hated cooked carrots, until I made these three ingredient roasted carrots. Truth be told, there was a similar recipe within the Well Fed Weeknights Cookbook for “Everything Carrots.” My lazy (read: extremely busy as we all are) self knew this title meant […]

Pickled Eggs from the UP

Pickled Eggs from the UP

I went to school in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Being from Alaska, I never looked into the weather in the location of my school studies. Instead, I made the assumption that “anywhere would be better” as far as the weather was concerned. I was […]

Leftover Mashed Potato Pancakes (Paleo/SWYPO Whole30/DF/GF Latkes)

It’s several days after Christmas and my house is full of guests…..and takeout boxes. You see, our visitors have wanted to go out to eat at the local places. It completely makes sense, but has meant that our Christmas leftovers have gone relatively untouched until […]

Whole30 White Chicken Chili (Slow-Cooker)

Today was a day of busy house-things after a week of work travel. TBH I didn’t want to meal prep. So I told myself I was going to make up a crockpot recipe that I could truly just toss in the ingredients and let it […]

Whole30 Sesame Chicken

Whole30 Sesame Chicken

Today, my husband had a meal request. He told me he wanted “American style Chinese” for dinner. You see, I grew up in an area where authentic Chinese food was available, and when I moved to the Midwest was beyond horrified with what is considered […]

Spicy Bacon Wrapped Dates (Whole 30)

If you are looking for a super fast, super easy, and super delicious appetizer LOOK NO FURTHER. It was Labor Day weekend, and we were invited to a football game party. My sweet husband forgot to mention this to me until the morning of, leaving […]

Sweet and Spicy Pico de Gallo (Whole 30)

Sweet and Spicy Pico de Gallo (Whole 30)

I love salsa. So much. In fact, one of my favorie things in life is chips & salsa. Unfortunately I cannot have corn (meaning no tortilla chips – though the expensive Siete ones are amazing!), so any excuse to eat salsa and I’m sold! This […]

Whole30 Leek Chips (Roasted Leek Stalks)

Whole30 Leek Chips (Roasted Leek Stalks)

Occassionally, I like to go out of my normal zone with veggies. Because of our budget 99% of produce comes from Aldi. Aldi may have amazing prices, but the selection of vegetables can get redundant. So I like to add in something new here and […]
