Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes with Coconut Pecan Streusel

untitled-8

These twice baked sweet potatoes are officially my new favorite way to scarf down the oh so good for you vegetable. Never mind that they are smothered in butter and sugar. I’m normally more of a savory person when it comes to my sweet potatoes and usually go for them diced, tossed in olive oil

It’s seriously hard to believe Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away. It’s been unseasonably warm around here so I keep forgetting it’s already November. And as much as I love Thanksgiving, I am really ready for Christmas this year. Noah wants to put up the Christmas tree already and I’m thinking he has the

As much as I love summer, we’ve had a few tiny glimpses into fall weather lately and I’m so into it. I mean, sweaters and scarves and riding boots. But, can we keep summer food? I just love barbeques full of grilling and pasta salads and all things fresh. Baked beans always make me think

Roasted Green Beans

I’m a parent to a picky four year old. He used to eat everything I put in front of him but as he’s gotten older, he’s gotten more and more selective. This is all very unfortunate as I have branched out since starting up this little blog and make a lot of unique meals that

Buttermilk and Feta Mashed Potatoes

So I’m pretty sure I have the weirdest kid in the world. He doesn’t like potatoes. POTATOES. Seriously, not mashed, baked, fried….nothing. What kid, or person really, doesn’t like fries? It’s seriously concerning and makes me question whether he’s really mine. Because this lady never met a potato she didn’t like. I usually make these
