Slow Cooker Whole Chicken

I’m not really sure this even counts as a recipe, more of an idea. I love using the slow cooker especially during the week on days that I work in the office. The only issue is planning ahead and making sure your ingredients are thawed and ready to go so you don’t have to worry about it in the morning. …

BBQ Pineapple Pork Pizza + Baby Update

I’ve been obsessed with making this pizza crust since being pregnant. Over the summer I made pesto, chicken and veggie pizza with this paleo pizza crust pretty much every week. I’m already dreaming about that combination and can’t wait for basil to be back in season! In the meantime we’ve been making other pizza combos such as fig jam, prosciutto, …

Salmon, Arugula and Pear Salad

I just recently started eating salmon again. I was eating it a lot right when I found out I was pregnant and then the nausea hit around 6 weeks and no more salmon… I’m also pretty picky on where I buy my fish. Cheap fish grosses me out! I want to get it on our weekly menu so I can …

Chicken, Butternut Squash and Cherry Salad

It has been way too long since I posted a new recipe. Baby Enzo has definitely kept me and Joe very busy. Things do seem to be slowing down and I’ve been able to cook a little more than I did in the beginning. Joe and I usually tag team dinner depending on his sleeping schedule or I try to …

Grilled Curry Maple-Mustard Chicken

During the summer, Joe grills pretty much every night. I have been avoiding the oven as much as possible during our 100 degree days. Being pregnant doesn’t really help with the heat either! Luckily, Joe really likes grilling and has gotten a few staples nailed down. Chicken is one of them. This glaze is so tasty and a nice change …

I can’t believe Thanksgiving has already come and gone and we are only less than three weeks away from Christmas. It is going to fly by! We had an awesome Thanksgiving. I was pretty impressed with my own planning abilities and created a stress-free Thanksgiving day by cooking most of my dishes ahead of time. Dinner turned out great. We …

Harvest Chicken and Vegetable Salad

It’s FINALLY starting to feel like Fall in Austin. Even though Halloween is here and gone, I just haven’t felt like it’s truly Fall yet with temperatures still in the 80’s. Luckily, we did visit Kansas City a few weeks ago with my family and enjoyed some cooler temperatures. When it’s 60 degrees in December and everyone back home in …

Hickory BBQ Bacon Chicken Burger

This is a big week for Joe and I…we move into our new house in Austin! This moment has been a long time coming. We have not had a place to call our own for over a year when we initially moved to Omaha. I’m not complaining because it was all our own doing and decisions, but I am so …

Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken Tenders with Mango Glaze

My wonderful husband came up with this recipe and made it for my birthday a few weeks back. Instead of going out to dinner, I had asked him to cook me something homemade, delicious and Paleo! This is what he came up with. He also cooked up Nom Nom Paleo’s Swiss Chard with Golden Raisins and Pine Nuts (sooo yummy). This dish was so …

Sweet BBQ Chicken & Mango Salad

These last few weeks have been absolutely crazy. Work has been super busy from finishing up projects to training someone to take over my role. Looking for houses has been exhausting. We put in an offer and had it accepted by a home we really love, however there are potentially some serious foundation issues, which we are still finalizing. We’ve …
