Good morning, lovely people! I think you all know by now that my favorite subject is HEALTHY BREAKFAST FOODS. Although, lately I’ve been partaking a little too much in the coffee shop pastry genre. I can’t say I’m sad about it. For me, if I have a decadent everything bagel with cream cheese or a croissant on Monday morning, I crave it every morning for … Continue reading avocados and fruit for breakfast.
Pasta salad…in a martini glass? WHY NOT! This is a Tannehill family favorite ~ my mom made this all the time, especially in the summer for barbecues and parties. The original recipe should NEVER be tampered with, but alas, I had hardly any of the correct ingredients. I still captured its spirit, though! And then went and ruined it by putting it in a martini … Continue reading Pizza Pasta Salad.
Last week I went out of town to sing a gig, and I got to see my family for a brief time. We always loved Sunday night finger foods growing up ~ cheese and crackers, summer sausage (Or is it somer? I actually have no idea), chips and dips and some kind of fruity-fizzy drink. I made the fruity-fizzy drink: a concoction of La Croix … Continue reading Tsatziki Broccoli Salad.
Does this plate of food look gross to you? I guess it wasn’t meant to be the prettiest Sunday lunch we’ve ever had. But I was determined to come home from church and get food on the table. Not go out and eat something expensive and decadent. The verdict: this was SO delicious. Comfort food at its finest. Sunday food from circa 1980. Tuna Cakes … Continue reading 3-ingredient Tuna Cakes & “NO-tato” Potato Salad.
You don’t need this recipe. It’s so easy. I just wanted to put a little bug in your ear, just in case you have forgotten how easy a pork chop can be. Honestly, I didn’t think I liked pork chops until the Hub came home one night a few months ago, with some bone-in pork chops from Trader Joe’s. Two in a package. Makes it … Continue reading ginger-soy pork chops.
Oh, this. This warming, comforting cauliflower rice pilaf is filling my house with the most fantastic and lovely smells. Its mouth-watering co-star is a Ginger-Soy pork chop, which will get its very own post shortly. I’M SO HUNGRY! I cannot wait for dinner. Here’s how it’s done… CAULIFLOWER RICE PILAF Melt two tablespoons butter or ghee in a Dutch oven. Butter has a major … Continue reading exotic cauliflower rice pilaf.
Oh baby ~ this is SO GOOD. Sometimes you just need cereal to distract you from the everyday mundane have-to’s of life. That’s right ~ I’m using cereal as a distraction. Does this tell you how desperate I am? But this cereal is not just any cereal. I’m cereal. Ha ha ha If that doesn’t make your mouth water, then you don’t like cereal as … Continue reading got cereal?
Good morning! And happy Lent! Oh wait…that’s not right. This is supposed to be a solemn time. Okay, well happy Wednesday! And happy 1st day of no sugar! This is just a tiny little Pixy-reminder to eat a healthy breakfast! I’ll just leave this bright, cheery plate right here… Those are eggs fried in just a touch of coconut oil, two handfuls of organic baby … Continue reading DAY 1: distractions.
This is a variation on Aarti Sequiera’s Mango Pulled Pork with Peanut Slaw. Here’s the original post: https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/winner-aarti-sequeira1/pulled-pork-with-mango-bbq-sauce-recipe-1921724 This is the only pulled pork recipe I make, but I change it up a bit each time. Usually this recipe changes for me based on what I have on hand. But the idea is all Aarti and I think she is brilliant. Here’s my take on … Continue reading Island Pulled Pork w/Indian Peanut Slaw.
Happy Snow Day! AGAIN! Do you live in KC, or anywhere in the Midwest? If so, you’re probably snowed in right now. We are, and we are not sad about it. The Hub and I went to Trader Joe’s early this morning and nailed it with some slow cooker meals, meat for the freezer, and fruits and veggies GALORE!!! Here’s a little tip you probably … Continue reading PREP DAY.
