Spring Rolls with Peanut Hoisin Dipping Sauce

September is here, yet fall has not quite arrived with it. Though this is on the whole quite irritating, it does mean a bit of an extended harvest. My mint patch is still going strong, and spring rolls have become my favorite way to use it up. I don’t have a very long history with… Continue reading Spring Rolls with Peanut Hoisin Dipping Sauce

One Pot Greek Chicken and Orzo

Another semester of school has started, which means once again my evening free time has shriveled. Therefore, quick, easy, pre-planned meals like this one pot recipe are a life saver. And if I haven’t planned ahead, cereal is usually what’s for dinner. I love me some cereal, as does Alejandro. However, my responsible adult self… Continue reading One Pot Greek Chicken and Orzo

Slow Cooker Venison Barbacoa

As I’m sure you all know, lately the weather has been ungodly hot. I know I’m lucky to live in a mountain state that at least cools off a little each night, but my morning runs have been miserably warm, and even our dogs no longer want to hang out outside.

Linguine Aglio Olio

Let me just tell you, the last couple weeks have been rough. They’ve involved many late nights and early mornings, multiple teary meltdowns, and not nearly enough baking. Thankfully, I have a couple close friends at school going through the same thing to complain to, study with, and talk life. I’m really not sure if… Continue reading Linguine Aglio Olio

Creamy Chicken and Black Rice Soup

Well, fall is finally here. Unfortunately, the weather here so far has been cloudy, wet, and chilly, not the sunny, crisp, and cool fall I adore. After spending a chilly Saturday morning with the pups at our local open spaces dog park, I decided holing up inside for the evening with a steaming bowl of… Continue reading Creamy Chicken and Black Rice Soup
