Simple Sausage Ragu over Polenta

untitled-2

For the most part, we are pretty simple people. Frills and fancy need not apply here. I’ve always thought of polenta as fancy and something we wouldn’t like so I’ve never tried it.

Meat Lovers Skillet

If there is a major carnivore in your life, stop everything you are doing and make this. They will pretty much love you forever and request it on any occasion celebrating them. Trust me, I know from experience. This skillet is inspired by a diner that we used to frequent often when we lived in

Sweet Potato Breakfast Casserole {Clean Eating}

I’ve had a hard time finding big fancy breakfasts worthy of a lazy Saturday morning that are still clean and healthy. These waffles are pretty darn tasty but most of the time I am more of a savory breakfast kind of person. Not only is this recipe clean but it’s also gluten and lactose free

Easy and Delicious Stromboli

I live in a house full of boys who love pizza. And I mean LOVE. Now don’t get me wrong, I like pizza as much as the next person but it can get a little old and boring sometimes (at least the kind of pizza Joel likes). So I like to mix up our pizza

Sausage Stuffed Zucchini

During a recent visit to the Minneapolis Farmer’s Market I picked up some heirloom orange zucchini. It was our first visit but I will tell you it definitely won’t be our last! I loved the place but left a bit sad since it’s so far away and we don’t have anything comparable near us. But we
