Lime Tortilla Chips

I know, I know. Another Tex-Mex recipe. I would say I’m sorry, but I’m really not, ya know? Because these lime tortilla chips are guaranteed to rock your world. But they will ruin all other tortilla chips for you. And so I guess for that I…

The BEST Guacamole

The BEST Guacamole

To say I take my Tex-Mex food seriously is a bit of an understatement, and that definitely includes guacamole. At least once a week we are having some kind of Tex-Mex/Mexican food in our home. I honestly didn’t realize how often I gravitate towards Tex-Mex…

Chicken and Dumplings

Chicken and Dumplings

Allow me to introduce you to the ultimate Southern comfort food: chicken and dumplings. Alright, to be fair, you’ve probably already heard of and eaten chicken and dumplings before. If not, you really need to make this tonight. Like right now. Just jump down to…

Brussels Sprouts Slaw

Brussels Sprouts Slaw

I know some people have a love-hate frenemy relationship with veggies, but I actually really like them. A lot. With the exception of carrots and turnip greens. Needless to say, you aren’t going to find a lot of carrot recipes on this blog. But if…

Crazy Easy Chilaquiles

This is one of our favorite recipes. Seriously, since I worked on this recipe a couple of years ago we have probably eaten it at least once a month. Usually more often. It is one of our go-to weekend breakfasts (or lunches, or dinners). It…

Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies

Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies

Let’s get diabetes together. I promise (ish) it will be worth it, once you taste these amazing peanut butter fudge brownies. Combining peanut butter and fudge? Yes, please! It’s a combination that cannot fail. And since you swirl the peanut butter on top these brownies…

Hydrating Cucumber Cooler

Hydrating Cucumber Cooler

Anyone else feel like they have just trekked across the Sahara every morning when they wake up? Just me? Honestly, all I can think about when I stumble bounce enthusiastically out of bed (ha!) is “water…water…”. And so this drink was really born out of necessity.…
