Caramelized Apple Bacon Pizza

If you saw my Instastory last week, you already know Zelda waited very patiently and then not so patiently to eat this pizza. By the time we were done, she was begging me to let her eat it. I love caramelizing apples as soon as the cold weather hits and decided to combine two of Zelda's loves (bacon and goat cheese) to create …

Butternut Squash Soup & Chocolate Pomegranate Bacon Sandwiches

Butternut Squash Soup and Chocolate Pomegranate Bacon Sandwiches are truly decadent together. This rich duo is where savory comfort food meets dessert. I’ve never made butternut squash soup and I thought it was going to be really complicated. As it turns out, Zelda could probably make this with very little help. I cut the butternut squash in half …

Healthy Take Out at Home: Cauliflower Fried “Rice”

Admittedly, prior to having Zelda I never paid too much attention to what I was eating. With my busy work schedule, food on the fly is pretty much the norm. However, I’ve really been working to change this habit (but I still love Taco Bell!). Last week, I did a post about what egg labels mean and it …

Pepperoni, Mushroom & Black Olive Pizza Quesadillas

I’ll eat pizza pretty much any way it is served and these pizza quesadillas are exceptional. Sometimes the best things in life are the simplest and trust me, this is the epitome of easy. Pile your favorite toppings on one half of a tortilla shell, place in the skillet, flip, slice and serve! Dinner doesn’t get more straightforward than that. …

Tiffany Dessa’s Keto Fathead Pizza

Before interviewing Tiffany Dessa, I had never heard of a ketogenic diet. This busy mama is an entrepreneur, single mama of four and a keto enthusiast. For those of you in the same boat as I was, a ketogenic diet is low carb and high fat diet. It forces your body into burning fat instead of …

Cinco de Mayo Mini Burritos & Baby Daddy Margaritas

Lucky for me, Spiro is a genius in the kitchen and one of his specialties is a margarita. I’m convinced no one makes a better margarita than he does, so we’ll naturally be pairing them with our Cinco de Mayo mini burritos on Friday. His signature drink can be spiced up with jalapenos but they can be left …

Kid-Friendly Sausage Lasagna Cups

I can’t resist making things in mini so when I found kid-friendly lasagna cups on Pinterest I knew I had to make them. Little Z and I gave the recipe our own spin and used sausage instead of ground beef. It’s amazing how much more involved she wants to be in the kitchen. She’s always asking me what …

Pear, Pesto & Pancetta Pizza

Fruit on pizza?! It’s for real. Zelda and I decided to go the road less traveled and mix things up with our pesto pizza toppings. I wasn’t sure if she would go for this, but she made it her own and ate the pancetta, pears and cheese first, finishing the crust last. To each their own! I reheated …

Crock Pot Recipe: Greek Inspired Pulled Chicken Nachos

Zelda is half Greek, so we like to incorporate Mediterranean ingredients wherever possible. I’ve mentioned before that I love using the Crock-Pot, especially in the winter, and I’ve got shredded chicken down to a science. With the help of Wheat Thins toasted pita chips, I incorporated some of her favorite ingredients into these kid-friendly chicken nachos and they …
