Yesterday was a total disaster. I overscheduled our morning, worked on my grad school research project during nap time, and by the time we hit 3pm I was eating chocolate chips by the handful to try to make it through the rest of the day. I gave myself a stomach ache, and didn’t feel any more energetic afterwards (surprise). Though I managed to make dinner (baked chicken thighs, sweet potatoes, and broccoli), I was riding the struggle bus the whole way through. At 9pm, I was laying on the couch crying to my husband that I was too tired to go get in bed.
So today I was determined to make it a better day. Luckily we had little on the agenda so I took advantage and most of the day we spent hanging out at home. I even made dinner during Teddy’s naptime so I knew I could relax this evening and not be a total puddle by the time my husband got home. (more…)
Paleo Skillet Pizza Shepherd’s Pie comes together with a handful of kitchen staples for an easy weeknight meal that fills your kitchen with the intoxicating smell of pizza, without all the grease!
You can thank my pregnancy for this recipe. So far, my only real craving has been cheese. No, there’s not any cheese in this recipe (although I bet it would be delicious if you added some in!). There was no cheese left in the fridge, because I’ve been eating it with basically every meal every day.
BUT, I was craving pizza, so I figured I could fool myself into it with some italian seasoning and pepperoni. IT WORKED. This was a perfect no-fuss weeknight meal that satisfied my pizza craving without calling in a delivery order.
It’s like a shepherd’s pie, but with pizza flavors. You on board?? (more…)
My friend Brit had her second baby a few weeks ago, and he is the cutest, snuggliest little guy! I always forget how tiny newborns are until there’s one right in front of me. I wanted to make a meal for her since I know that cooking is one of the hardest things to find time to do when you have a newborn. I’m always looking for good ideas of meals to bring to a friend with a new baby, so I thought I’d share what I brought over.
Brit already texted asking me for the recipes right after she ate dinner, so I know she loved it!
