Grilled Tequila Shrimp Tacos

Grilled Tequila Shrimp Tacos

Tacos are my runner-up love language, second only to burritos – good thing breakfast burritos are our official unofficial food of Colorado so we can eat them aaaaall day! Taco bars are perfect for summer, not too heavy and quick to throw together. Tequila & […]

Jalapeño Bacon Cream Cheese Pizza

Jalapeño Bacon Cream Cheese Pizza

Let’s just slow down and savor these beautiful words: jalapeño. bacon. cream cheese. pizza. Yep, this is definitely all kinds of good. Summertime is 100% meant for eating outside, but Colorado’s afternoon thunderstorms are still hitting hard and heavy right before dinner. Since we aren’t all […]

Steamed Artichokes with Creamy Garlic Butter

Steamed Artichokes with Creamy Garlic Butter

Artichokes have to be the most intimidating, least intuitive veggie for a first-time attempt. They take a little work to eat, but that’s somehow part of their weird charm – you have to earn the sweet, tender heart at the center. These prickly little guys […]

Jalapeño Popper Spaghetti Squash

Jalapeño Popper Spaghetti Squash

We’ve been loading spaghetti squash up with everything for easy low-carb dinners lately, so I had to share one of my favorites! Diced jalapeños for flavor and heat, crispy salty bacon bits, and (most importantly) three types of cheese make this creamy and so satisfying. I […]

French Onion Grilled Cheese

French Onion Grilled Cheese

Colorado’s winter-spring waltz has my food cravings all confused. With snow dusting the ground in the morning and hot shorts-ready sun in the afternoon, I don’t know if I want a big bowl of chili or a smoothie. These fit right in with cozy comfort food – melty […]

Irish Corned Beef Tacos

Irish Corned Beef Tacos

Kate, you might be thinking, corned beef season ended like two weeks ago. And yes, okay, I’m way late to the party on this one. But here’s my counter offer: corned beef is delicious, and it’s still on sale at my grocer, and why do we […]

Skillet Chicken with Mushrooms & Olives

Skillet Chicken with Mushrooms & Olives

Last night I put all my favorite things in a skillet and magic happened. Chicken thighs are poached in red wine yet crispy on top, mushrooms and tomatoes and olives all melt together, and we only have to wash one pan! This barely misses the […]

Apple & Rosemary Chicken Sausage Skillet

Apple & Rosemary Chicken Sausage Skillet

Friends! This is it: your one-skillet, family-pleasing, nutritious dinner plan. Easy to toss together and so good that it won’t last long! Sauteing apples + onions + chicken sausage + rosemary + cinnamon makes a knock-em-dead skillet that – bonus – is good for you! This […]

Ultimate Veggie Sandwich

Ultimate Veggie Sandwich

Tomatoes on cucumbers on red onion with lettuce and of course AVOCADO is a great base for eating healthy, and paired with provolone makes the best vegetarian sandwich! Here’s the answer for all those veggies in your fridge from good intentions at the grocery store. […]

Baked Avocado Falafel

Baked Avocado Falafel

January means we’re eating all things green! These baked falafel get their bright-green color from my die-hard favorites, avocado and cilantro. We might not be winning any beauty contests, but we’re killing it in the flavor department.
