Chili is one of my favorite winter meals. There’s something so comforting about a warm bowl of chili. The only thing I don’t like about it is that some recipes require tons of prep work and hours of cooking on the stove. While I don’t mind this every once in a while, I much prefer recipes that are quick to whip up and require very little prep work. That is why I created this super easy Crockpot turkey chili recipe! About 10 minutes of prep work and you’re done! Let the Crockpot do all of the hard work for you! Start out by peeling andRead More →

I absolutely love traditional brown sugar glazed sweet potatoes. They’re the perfect holiday treat. But their nutritional profile just isn’t something that is worth it to be all of the time. That is why I decided to make a more macro friendly, “skinny” version that is still full of flavor but not of calories. Start out by preheating the oven to 450 and lining a baking sheet with either a silicone baking mat or sprayed tin foil. Next peel and chop your sweet potatoes into 1″ cubes and place in a bowl. In another small bowl mix your melted butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt andRead More →

I have to admit, when I first got my Instant Pot, I was a little intimidated by it. I’m so used to just being able to throw ingredients together in a pan and hope it turns out okay. But with an instant pot, there is almost a science to it. My very first time cooking with it I had the “burn” message pot up on the screen, and it’s safe to say that freaked me out. However after more practice I can finally say that I really love my instant pot! It can help you make some really delicious meals in no time! For exampleRead More →

My secret ingredient is chickpea pasta! It’s only ingredient is chickpeas, but it surprisingly tastes just like regular pasta! Even the pickiest of eaters will agree. You could probably even get away with not telling your kids (or husband) and they won’t even knowRead More →
