Happy first official day of fall to all of you! Comfort season calls for comfort food and that’s exactly what I’m sharing with you today. These 6 Comfort Food Recipes for Fall are sure to get you in the spirit of crisp air, falling leaves, and warm blankets. Here we have a variety of recipes with multiple ways to prepare them. I love a good crockpot recipe just as much as I love a classic stove top recipe. When we switch it up we get to enjoy the much more. But what matters the most is to feel the comfort the comfort food gives to us in this season.
The new year is around the corner and everyone is going to be sharing advice for 2021. Well, my unsolicited advice is to get comfortable being inside for a few more months by finding joy in the small things; like dinner time. If you’re going to be stuck inside your home, your stomach should at least be full and happy, right? If there’s one thing 2020 has taught us it’s that life is short so enjoy the little things in life. Food on the table and a roof to cook it under is a great place to start. This round up of my favorite 5 Winter Comfort Food Dishes is perfect for the cold weather and to switch up the usual dinner ideas you’ve been making since March.Read More
Hello September and hello comfort food season! If you’re anything like me you’ve been waiting for fall to get here since the beginning of summer. I’m not joking either. I may be slightly addicted to fall and the holiday season. So when I say I’ve been counting down I definitely mean it! One of my favorite parts of fall is the comfort food. This is the time everyone pulls out their favorite homemade soups, traditional family recipes, and the recipes we enjoy without looking at the calorie count. This Cajun Chicken and Shrimp Alfredo recipe is one of those “don’t count the calories or fat” type of recipes. But that’s how you know it tastes delicious, right?Read More
If you’ve been to Louisiana then you know of the staple dishes they take seriously down here is their red beans and rice. Any authentic Cajun restaurant is guaranteed to have red beans and rice on the menu. Being a foodie means I’m always trying my best to recreate the authentic flavors in some of my favorite dishes. After having red beans and rice at one of my favorite local mom and pop restaurants in Bossier City, LA, I left determined to create a Crockpot Smoked Red Beans and rice dish that is equally delicious. Not only did I figure it out after two tries, being able to throw the ingredients in the crockpot and go is perfection.Read More
This recipe is a special request for many of my readers. For months I have been asked for the Pan Seared Salmon recipe and I finally got the measurements perfect for all of you. Salmon is one of our favorite protein dishes in our household which means we always find new ways to prepare it. Although this way isn’t particularly “new” it’s a classic that never gets old.
Spring is finally in the air! The weather has finally started to match the season here in Montana. This means I’ve been cooking and serving up lighter recipes and dishes for the family. This is the second green vegetable recipe I have gotten my oldest daughter to enjoy eating. I had to trick her and tell her it tastes like broccoli, but it paid off because she loved it! This lemon garlic asparagus recipe pairs perfect with my Honey Garlic Salmon. To complete the meal make a pot of rice or light whipped mashed potatoes. I promise you will love it!Read More
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and one of my absolute favorite Valentine’s Day desserts are chocolate covered strawberries. Chocolate plus strawberry equals a match made in heaven. It feels good not feeling too guilty about eating a dozen all by yourself. You know, since it’s fruit underneath the chocolate LOL.Read More
Valentine’s day is less than 2 weeks away. I’m still not sure how we got to February so quickly but here we are. Every year on Valentine’s Day my husband prepares a delicious dinner for me and this year will be no different. My favorite Valentine’s Day dinners usually always consist of pasta and cheese. Who the first person was to prepare pasta and cheese together deserves a Nobel Peace Prize. Okay, well maybe not a peace prize, but they deserve something! Pasta and cheese are two of my food weaknesses and they’re two stars of this Bacon Kale and mushroom pasta.Read More
Happy Tasty Tuesday everyone! Although this year seems to be flying by already, because how is January almost over already? Most of us new year resolution people are still trying to stay on track and accomplish our goals. The most common new year resolution is always to be healthy and/or lose weight.

One vegetable most people seem to like is broccoli. But who doesn’t love a delicious over roasted broccoli recipe packed with flavor and guiltless to indulge in? Exactly!Read More
French toast, eggs, and bacon is a classic breakfast combination. Who doesn’t love the combination of savory and sweet first thing in the morning for breakfast or brunch? French toast is always a favorite in our household. This is one of the recipes I make knowing my four year old will eat every single drop. But the real french toast lover in the house is my husband.Read More
