Back-to-School: Coconut Milk Poached Cod with Bell Peppers and Pineapple

This back-to-school season, I will be posting new One-Bowl-Wonders recipes.  Recipes in this series are simple, quick, and can be made with just one bowl.  They are designed to be ready to eat in under an hour without wrecking your whole kitchen!  Easy recipes. Easy clean-up. Big reward! ….Perfect for back to school! In August, the husband and I stole away for a little over a week in Kauai. It was equal parts invigorating, relaxing, and exactly what we needed before launching into a crazy season that will involve a move (never fun) and lots of changes (all, good and necessary). Kauai and Hawaii, in general, may not be known as…

Back-to-School: Chipotle Turkey Sloppy Joes

This back-to-school season, I will be posting new One-Bowl-Wonders recipes.  Recipes in this series are simple, quick, and can be made with just one bowl.  They are designed to be ready to eat in under an hour without wrecking your whole kitchen!  Easy recipes. Easy clean-up. Big reward! ….Perfect for back to school! I have been going through a phase… probably later than some.  This period of my life can forever be known as the Chipotle Turkey Sloppy Joe phase.  As I write this post, it is 6am and I still would take one of these big ole sloppy joes! Growing up, we weren’t ever the sloppy joe house.  I still…

Summer Salads and Sides: Sesame Soy Ahi Salad

Sometimes, I get a food itch that I just can’t quit.  This summer ahi tuna has been one of those. Partially because it takes about 12 seconds to prepare, but mostly because it tastes fresh, amazing and makes me feel like I could be on a tropical island. And to be honest, in exactly 9 days, I will be!  Kauai to be exact.  I plan to eat ahi poke by the bucket, hit-up fish markets like its cool, and order “catch of the day” on the daily.  So I’m giving myself a mini head start this summer. In this case, a sweet-tangy-soy-glazed head start…  Ending with “Mmmmmms” and lots of…

Love People Well: Spicy Asian Quick Pickled Veggies or “Quickles”

While I admit that I gravitate towards baked goods, specifically muffins, as evidenced by the first two posts in the Love People Well series (found: here and here), I am spreading my wings and branching out!  Pull your mason jars!  We are making “quickles!!”  The easiest, tastiest, crunchiest spicy Asian-style quick pickled veggies! No one can argue with the easily shareable/giftable nature of cookies, muffins, scones, etc. but does my single-dude contractor friend who saved our house from falling over this week want a batch of muffins?  I’m willing to wager that answer is “no.”  (Although, he’s never been one to turn down anything with chocolate chips, now that I…

Girls Night in 5: 5 Ingredient Flatbreads

Girls’ Night in 5 is a monthly “how-to” series containing Girls’ Night friendly recipes with 5 or fewer ingredients and no more than 5 minutes of active prep!  This series is part of my mission to simplify entertaining to encourage readers to invest in their community through hosting and loving people well. When you have a lot of people over, lots of options are key!  Usually the down side to lots of options is lots of TIME and planning.  Enter the 5 ingredient, 5 minute flatbread.  Almost no time, and super minimal planning.  Double score. There are roughly as many possible toppings for these as there are fish in the…
