Peach Pie Overnight Oats

Mornings. What can be said about week-day mornings at your house? It’s back to school season and I know it’s left many of you with mornings of chaos. Maybe the adjectives that come to mind include hectic, stressful, rushed, tired, or hungry. I know this is the reality for so many of us, having a…

Double Layer Enchiladas

Throughout my pregnancy I have been craving plenty of Mexican food, especially rice, black beans, salsa, and chunky guacamole.

Sweet Potato & Farro Melt

A few days ago, Justin came home hauling over eighty pounds of pork meat from his last hunt. That means he came home with eighty pounds of Italian sausage, chorizo, bacon, bacon-wrapped tenderloins, ham, and pork chops from the local wild game processor. Filling our freezer up to the brim with meat, I knew I…
