Hi guys! As I type this on Sunday night (working ahead so I can enjoy the Monday holiday with Matt and Riese), I have a lentil bolognese with spaghetti squash cooking for dinner in the Instant Pot! 

I’ll be sharing the recipe with you on Wednesday, so stay tuned. 

ALSO: the 6 quart Instant Pot I have is on sale on Amazon right now for $69… just FYI if you’ve been considering buying one!

All the Burritos + Walks

Morning, guys! I'm officially going to take the time once a month or so to stock my freezer with make-ahead breakfast burritos. It's so nice to have them to grab as either a snack or a meal!

Dear enchiladas: you are awesome. Why had it been so long since we made you?! Matt and I enjoyed these earlier this week, and I had the leftovers for breakfast (yes, breakfast - savory breakfasts are my jam lately - anyone else?) the next day, too. They were a Blue Apron dinner but very similar to my Sweet Potato Black Bean Veggie Enchiladas Continue Reading …

Prepping Ingredients for Awesome Lunches

Dinners in our house generally feel under control and have some good variety -- we do Blue Apron or Sun Basket (<- FYI those are both affiliate links for deals on your first boxes if you are interested) for 3 dinners each week, and then I like testing new Continue Reading …

Weekend Adventures

It Continue Reading …
