Three weeks into January and I am craving everything tex-mex! Mexican food is one of my favorite foods to indulge in when I’m on a “diet” because the flavors are always robust and typically you can sneak some cheese in without it throwing off your entire day. When I was picking up these ingredients from the
Raise your hand if you have a signature chili recipe up your sleeve already? *raises both hands and both feet* I love cooking chili during the colder months and I have about four versions I rotate through. I have a skinny chili that uses ground turkey, when I’m in a pinch I’ll buy a boxed
Stew season or as the millennials would say “#StewSZN” is here. As New Years Eve tradition demands, I make a hearty bowl of Hoppin’ John Stew to help bring in good fortune, good luck, and prosperity for the new year. How does a stew do that? Well that’s a fantastic question!
You guys! This is my last recipe of 2018 using the fantastic cheddars from my partners at Tillamook.

Butternut Squash was never something I ate while growing up as my family opted for canned pumpkin for all of our gourd consumption needs. After college, I was introduced to Butternut Squash Soup and fell
As I mentioned in this post here, this creamy tomato soup was inspired by my recent trip to Portland Oregon to visit my partners at Tillamook and to attend the Feast Festival! When we were at the Tillamook Creamery, we were treated to a delicious meal that included their prized tomato soup and fried cheese curds. I
My absolute favorite food in the entire world is a cheeseburger. But not just any cheeseburger, unfortunately, I’m not that simple and rather particular about my order and will look over any offering of such “cheeseburger” claim on the menu if it doesn’t meet my high standards. The burger must be assembled as such: two
I get asked quite frequently “What’s your signature dish?” I reply with some sort of hemming and hawing until it hits me: roasted chicken. Roast chicken is one of those dinner’s that’s a gift that keeps on giving- everyone can get a piece of the bird that they like (white or dark meat) and you’re typically
