Cheesy Broccoli Twice Baked Sweet Poatoes

One of my favorite foods in all the land is a twice baked potato filled with butter, bacon, cheese and sour cream. But trying to be healthy and all doesn’t quite mesh with the feelings I have towards that glorious potato. So what do you do when you want a comforting, creamy potato but not all

Farro, White Bean and Broccoli Gratin

My little man graduated from preschool on Saturday. And I kept it together through the whole ceremony. Mostly. Both of those facts are incredibly hard for me to believe.

This past summer we vacationed in the Dominican Republic and had a blast. The only thing I was disappointed with was the food. We stayed at a resort so it was nice that we didn’t have to figure out and agree on meals but we definitely didn’t get the authenticity that we usually seek out

 After trying several pizza sauce recipes, I made this one and have never looked back.  Iron Mike’s sauce has a sweet background which is so unique and delicious.  The original recipe was a bit too sweet for our taste so I adapted it, using less honey and brown sugar.

Quinoa Black Bean Patties

Joel was not too thrilled with this meal to say the least. But my response to some of these vegetarian meals that he hasn’t loved has been “it’s your fault.” It was his idea to give up meat so I don’t have any sympathy for him, haha. I was actually pleasantly surprised with the outcome
