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 […]
This recipe comes courtesy of my husband, who is a huge “biscuits and gravy” fan. The problem? After he did a round of Whole30, he realized that dairy really doesn’t agree with him. I could’ve told you that years ago because of the, ahem, effects, […]
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 I had to try just throwing on the Trader Joe’s “Everything but the Bagel” seasoning instead of basically making my own. It worked! It worked well enough that my husband complemented them. Well enough that I enjoy a food I historically hated, and well enough that our toddler eats as many helpings as we will allow her. Yep, we actually have to cut her off! That’s how much our two year old loves these three ingredient roasted carrots. AND, they are easy. AND they are cheap to make!
A part of me hates calling these a “recipe” but the formatting makes more sense for anyone who wants to print. If you don’t have a Trader Joe’s near you, I’m sorry for torturing you! The nearest Trader Joe’s to me is about 45minutes away, so I buy literally 3+ of these spices at a time.
These three ingredient roasted carrots make a great side dish, especially with red meats or poultry. Give them a try, I think the whole family will love them.
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 […]
Did you know thta you can use your veggie scraps to make vegetable broth? I had heard this but it sounded a little intimidating. Again, just like with ghee and bone broth, I was wrong. It’s SUPER easy and even more so with my Instant […]
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 last night. I made my first batch of Instant Pot Turkey Bone Broth (link here, it turned out awesome!) and this morning woke up with a resolve to repurpose something else of our Christmas leftovers.
Almost immediately, the thought of a “leftover mashed potato pancake” with some eggs on top sounded like a tasty brunch. I decided that since the mashed potatoes I’d made were Whole30, that this recipe woud be too. I hate that the term “pancake” is used because that immediately takes the recipe into SWYPO territory. Not sure what SWYPO is? Click here for the Whole30 explanation of SWYPO. It’s really a latke, but just to be safe I’d prefer to refer to these as “Paleo” as not to confuse anyone. These leftover mashed potato pancakes are the perfect way to repurose those leftovers!
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 […]
