Crockpot Vegan Chili Recipe

Lately, Sundays have been “crockpot” days in our house. With cooler weather, football on ALL day, and a bunch of last minute errands/projects/etc., it’s been really nice to spend only a few minutes prepping dinner – and just let it sit. Yesterday, I made a vegan, gluten free, crockpot chili – so many of you asked me for the recipe, so I thought I’d share it here! We had a few random cans of tomatoes, beans, and peppers in our pantry plus some carrots and sweet potatoes, so I thought it would be delicious all mixed together, and it was! […]

Grocery 101

Yep, we’re talking grocery lists today! I’m sure you’re really looking forward to this one. 🙂 So many of you have asked questions about what we eat on a regular basis, how we shop for groceries, and what’s on our grocery list. I thought it might be helpful to share a little bit (a lot a bit, sorry for rambling) about our process and how we handle food in our family. My goal is to inspire routine and ease, lessening the burden of “what’s for dinner?” every night. As background… when we lived in Nashville, we shopped a few times […]

Homemade Bruschetta

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Ours was filled with tons of time outside enjoying the beautiful springlike weather. It feels like a completely different city when the sun is out and shining! I’m going to savor this weather while it lasts because it looks like it’s back to winter next weekend… We also had a few friends over (my grad school BFF and a few newer friends) – everyone brought an appetizer to share and it worked out perfectly. Just the right amount of food! I wanted to make something that I knew everyone would enjoy, but also be […]

Lemon Garlic Vinaigrette

We made it! 5 days into 2017 and life is moving right along. We unpacked, did about 32497 loads of laundry, cleaned the sand out of our suitcases, meal prepped, and planned out the month. Grant has already returned from his first business trip of the year and I’m settling into some sort of routine working from home… which leads me to why I am writing about salad dressing today 🙂 In the goals I shared a few days ago (thank you so much for your kind encouragement!), I mentioned wanting to focus on living a healthy lifestyle. Now that […]

Thanksgiving Menu 2016

Thanksgiving NEXT WEEK! It’s my favorite holiday and I am thrilled to be spending it with my little family. My parents are flying in from Phoenix on Wednesday and we’ll spend Thanksgiving Day here in Minnesota, just the 4 of us… #3musketeersplusG We usually go to Cedarburg for Thanksgiving, but we are mixing it up this year – it will be nice to have quality time together and delicious eats! Friday, we’ll head to my grandparents’ house in northern Wisconsin and spend the day with my not-so-little little cousins, aunt, uncle, and grandparents. Should be a relaxing and really fun […]
