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 …

Meal Planning Paleo-Style

One of the most important things to help me stick to the Paleo diet is to meal plan. I take an hour or two out of my week (usually Thursday night) to plan out my meals for the next week. This helps get me excited about cooking, trying new recipes and ensures that I always have healthy meals and snacks …

Chicken Salad with Prosciutto, Caramelized Peaches & Zucchini

Is spring finally here yet? It has been so cold in Nebraska…I mean it honestly snowed and we are almost through April. Really?? This weekend we are finally going to get some warmer weather and I am so excited to finally get outside. I’m most looking forward to riding my bike again. Last weekend Joe and I went indoor rock …

Portabella Chicken, Bacon & Pesto Sammies

The 21-Day Sugar Detox is officially over! Friday was my last day on the detox and I can honestly say I made it the whole 21 days without any slip ups or detours. It was not easy at times, but it definitely became easier as the weeks went on. It was actually weird to go to the grocery store and …

Sausage & Veggie Hash with Poached Eggs

Only 4 more days left in the 21 Day Sugar Detox!!! There are sweet potatoes somewhere out there just calling my name I know it! I’m already working on my meal plan for next week. 🙂 As hard as it has been at times, I really have been feeling good and I’m planning on doing more than one detox throughout …

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 …

21 Day Sugar Detox and Steak with Raspberry & Blue Cheese Sauce

Sugar detox and a recipe with blue cheese and raspberries don’t really go together, but that’s just too bad. I am currently on Day 1 Level 3 of the 21-Day Sugar Detox. Level 3 is for those who already follow a Paleo/Primal diet. The purpose of this detox is two-fold: 1.) I really feel like I’m still addicted to sugar …

Asparagus & Ham Frittata

While Joe and I were in Austin, I had two different frittatas  (check out the posts here and here) and was determined to make a recipe at home. I’ve always been scared to make one because for some reason taking a pan on the stove and putting it in the oven seemed hard. Really I’m not sure why. This was so …

Sausage, Sweet Potato & Kale Hash

I found a really delicious chicken sausage at Trader Joe’s that doesn’t have any added sugar and is fully cooked. Their Smoked Apple Chardonnay chicken sausage inspired me to think of something different to make instead of just grilling them up like we usually do. I knew I wanted to incorporate sweet potatoes (of course!) and apples. After a little …
