Pesto Beef & Veggie Noddles

It’s been a really long time since I posted a recipe on here! I’ve been addicted to these Austin-based veggie noodles and couldn’t help but try and make a recipe for the blog. They are super easy to use and fairly inexpensive. I haven’t bought my own spiralizer yet and so these noodles are my go-to when I want something …

Paleo Shepherd’s Pie

This recipe is really quick to throw together and so tasty. The combination of lamb with creamy mashed sweet potatoes is so delicious. If you don’t like the taste of lamb or can’t get access to it, you can substitute ground beef. You can mix in your favorite vegetables or mix up the spices however you want. This recipe is …

Sweet Potato Fries

Joe introduced me to what we always called “fries with hamburger” when we first started dating. Basically it was a bag of frozen waffle fries cooked until crispy topped with cooked ground beef and shredded cheese, then broiled. It was delicious! I’ve mixed it up over the years and used the all-natural frozen sweet potato fries and added a few …

Spicy Beef Tacos

What a week! We just got back from a trip to Omaha to see family and friends. We truly had a blast (despite the cold and the snow!) and wish we could’ve spent more time there. It is good to be back in Austin though where the weather is slowly heating back up into the 70’s. It’s also good to …

Baked Spaghetti and Meat Sauce

Hey all! It’s been quite a while since I posted an actual recipe so I decided to take a break from my “goal” posts and give you something tasty to munch on. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I started incorporating gluten-free grains from time to time into my diet. For this recipe I used quinoa pasta, but you could …

Dad’s Famous Brisket

This brisket is seriously amazing. I used my Dad’s famous brisket recipe that uses store-bought ketchup, BBQ sauce and Worcestershire sauce and altered it to use homemade versions of those ingredients. I searched for Paleo-friendly recipes and have included the links below. You could use any homemade version you like or any Paleo-friendly store-bought version. The brisket cooks low and slow …

Italian Burgers

I officially move to Austin in two weeks! And Joe is leaving in a week. I still think I’m a little bit in shock but it’s all starting to feel very real. We pack up all of our belongings into a POD tomorrow and are slowly starting to say goodbye to family and friends. I’m getting excited, nervous, anxious…all of …

Beer-Marinated Steak Fajitas

I know I’m pretty behind in my posts. I’m adding a Cinco de Mayo recipe a week late… Joe and I have been pretty busy over the last week or so. He just accepted a job in Austin, TX and we made the decision to leave Omaha and head down at the end of this month! We just moved back …

Spaghetti Squash with Fire-Roasted Tomato Sauce

It is officially Day 8 of the 21-Day Sugar Detox! The first few days were a little rough and I felt like I could never quite get satisfied or full with anything I ate. I was also exhausted and had a bit of a headache. But I’ve been feeling a lot better now. I never thought I really ate that …
