Sweet Potato Black Bean Enchiladas

By |July 8th, 2016|All Recipes, Dietary Restrictions, Dinner, Large Group Dinner, Large Groups, Vegan|

I love to host people for meals at our house. I love to cook for people but I also love creating memories of the entire family getting together on the back deck and in the yard. Our dogs running around with the babies; the girls chatting while the guys throw the football around. It's magical [...]

Homemade Hibachi Chicken

By |March 31st, 2016|All Recipes, Gluten Free, Large Groups|

Do you love teppanyaki style restaurants but hate sitting with a bunch of strangers? So I'm the weird one? Haha... Nothing satisfies a craving for me quite like hot fresh hibachi chicken with tons of veggies. It salty, rich, crunchy,'s heaven, but to have it regularly can break the bank! I had a craving [...]

Vegan Mushroom Onion Gravy

By |November 19th, 2015|All Recipes, Large Groups, Vegan, Vegetarian|

I needed the perfect vegan gravy to top my Vegan Holiday Stuff and this recipe did the trick! This gravy is so rich and flavorful that no one will even know it contains no animal products unless they ask for the recipe (which they might!). If you have vegan or vegetarian guests at your holiday [...]

By |November 19th, 2015|All Recipes, Gluten Free, Large Groups, Vegan, Vegetarian|

Score!!! This recipe is so awesome. I have committed to bringing a few vegan side dishes and a vegan main dish to one of our Thanksgiving gatherings this year. I wanted to experiment with some recipes I've never made before. I love roasted Brussels sprouts and wanted to incorporate some fall flavors. So, I roasted [...]

Vegan Holiday Stuffing

By |November 19th, 2015|All Recipes, Large Groups, Vegan, Vegetarian|

Nearly every year since birth, my favorite dish at the Thanksgiving table is my uncle's stuffing. The flavors are so simple, yet robust and the smell of this dish alone comes along with memories of family. Every year I mean to get his stuffing recipe so I can make it myself and every year I [...]

Kalbi (Korean BBQ Shortribs)

By |November 17th, 2015|All Recipes, Gluten Free, Large Groups|

My family LOVES Korean BBQ. I personally think it's delicious but I never really crave it. At a Korean restaurant I'll usually order some bibimbap. Mandu is fantastic and I really want to learn how to make my own. My dad, aunt and uncle are kalbi fiends. So much so that I try to make [...]

Slow Cooker Barbacoa

By |November 12th, 2015|All Recipes, Gluten Free, Large Groups, Slow Cooker|

Yay for Chipotle! Chipotle is such a good option for a quick, fresh, on-the-go meal. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on your perspective) the Chipotle near my house is TERRIBLE. Slow service, always out of everything, long lines, etc, etc. It's so bad that I've vowed to never step foot in there again, so if I [...]

Beer Chili

By |October 21st, 2015|All Recipes, Large Groups, Party Food, Slow Cooker|

Can you really ever have too many chili recipes? The answer is no. I love beer chili. It makes an already hearty chili even heartier. This recipe is similar to my signature chili recipe, but with MORE BEER and MORE MEAT! My preferred beer of choice if I'm going to make a chili is an [...]

Farm Stand Chicken Casserole

By |October 16th, 2015|All Recipes, Large Groups, Party Food|

I've had this Fall Farm Stand Chicken Casserole recipe from Michael Symon on Pinterest pinned forever and ever. It always looks so amazing and I have never made it. Last night I had my dad, aunt, and uncle over for our monthly dinner and card night. The weather is just starting to settle into chilly [...]

Vegan Butternut Squash Soup

By |October 2nd, 2015|All Recipes, Gluten Free, Large Groups, Slow Cooker, Vegan, Vegetarian|

Butternut squash soup is the creamiest, most comforting food in my opinion. There are a ton of ways to use butternut squash in soup and I've never met a butternut squash soup I haven't liked. It can be sweet; it can be savory. It tastes good with some spice, or a kick of cumin. It's [...]
