Slow Cooker Savory Ham

One of the biggest staples at family gatherings such as Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas is the roasted ham. Sometimes at these events there is not just a ham but also a turkey offered, and when given the choice, I always choose the turkey. This choice only happens for one reason – the ham is usuallyContinue reading “Slow Cooker Savory Ham”

Fiery Beef and Bean Stew

When I visit my parents, we almost always end up eating out in Stevens Point, WI because it has an abundance of delicious restaurants. Usually we end up eating at Father Fats, an incredible tapas restaurant. However, the last time I went out with them, we went across the street to the chef’s sister restaurantContinue reading “Fiery Beef and Bean Stew”

Chicken Parmesan with Roasted Veggies

Chicken Parmesan is a dish that is usually served over pasta, and I have tried this chicken baked with pasta and marinara sauce instead of veggies; however, lately I have been trying to eat healthier and have less carbs, so the last time I made it, I decided to roast some veggies instead. After eatingContinue reading “Chicken Parmesan with Roasted Veggies”

Creamy Wild Rice Soup

These past couple of months Cole and I have needed to reduce the amount of pasta we have been consuming. This gave me a bit of a dilemma after Thanksgiving, because my mom had given me a bunch of shredded turkey meat. My usual after Thanksgiving soup is Homemade Noodle, but with pasta being onContinue reading “Creamy Wild Rice Soup”

Italian Beef

Do you ever have a craving that hits you out of nowhere? This feeling happened to me last month. Out of the blue, I remembered a delicious dish that I had eaten at a friend’s house in high school. I knew that my mom had gotten the recipe from his parents, and that the starContinue reading “Italian Beef”

White Turkey Noodle Chili

Tis the season for turkey! It’s been a great Thanksgiving week, so I thought I would highlight one of my favorite chili recipes. While I love a spicy, traditional chili, when thinking about a healthier option, white chili with a poultry base is always a delicious, go-to option, especially when snow is in the forecastContinue reading “White Turkey Noodle Chili”

Honey Garlic Stir Fry

One of Cole’s and my favorite restaurants in this whole world in Samoeun’s Happy Wok in Plover, Wisconsin. If you are looking for someone who is the master of making authentic sauces for stir fry, they have it figured out. We go there every single time that we travel to visit my parents. Seriously, someContinue reading “Honey Garlic Stir Fry”

Four Ingredient Cheez-It Chicken Nuggets

I’m one of those people who meal-plans one week at a time before grocery shopping. Occasionally, I will ask Cole if he has any preferences for the week. (Sidenote, I should ask him more often…whoops.) Usually when I ask this question he will shrug and say, “Doesn’t matter,” but if he ever does have aContinue reading “Four Ingredient Cheez-It Chicken Nuggets”
