Family “Cast Iron” Pizza Night

My husband and I go on a date almost every single weekend. With 3 young kids and very limited time after work and other activities date nights are a must! A few weekends ago our babysitter cancelled last minute and left us home with the kids. So we decided to make it a fun family Friday  night! We made 3 different kinds of pizza in our cast iron pans then made caramel corn and hot chocolate! We watched a movie together and it turned out to be a very fun night! I have realized that when you decide to let …

Toscana Soup

There is a close family friend named Allison that I remember visiting and playing with her kids when I was young. Her and my mom have been friends for years. Recently they decided to go to culinary school together and become catering partners. I work hand in hand with my mom on her share of the catering jobs and her partner Allison does the other half. Both of them have published their own cookbooks and are excellent cooks. I love when I get to cater events with them because they help me to learn new tricks in the kitchen and …

Sweet Potatoes

This sweet potato recipe is by far my favorite sweet potato recipe I have ever tried. When I received a package of Santé Nuts I knew that it would be the perfect addition to make this recipe even better for our Thanksgiving meal this year! The only challenge was picking which pecans I wanted to add! Cinnamon pecans for the Win! Totally took this recipe up a notch! We have been using our Santé nuts on salads, in our smoothies and in oatmeal, muffins and other yummy recipes. And here is how you make these yummy sweet potatoes: First you mix the …

Apricot-Pistachio Rolled Pork

With the holiday season quickly approaching I feel like I am constantly looking for great recipes for upcoming parties and events. Whether it is a appetizer, dessert, or a main dish I am always looking for a nicer dish then the average everyday meal. This recipe is what I would like to call a “special occasion” main dish. I would not typically spend this amount of time on a week night meal. In fact when I was making this on a Saturday my husband asked if I was bringing dinner to someone or having people over haha. I actually just …

Coconut Chicken Curry

Curry is definitely not a staple in our home. I do enjoy the unique flavor of curry on occasion though. My husband backpacked through Thailand for 3 months years ago and said that curry was in almost every dish that he ate for that 3 months so he hasn’t eaten too much curry since then. So that explains the reason curry isn’t a staple in our home. But on the other hand as a women who cooks dinner practically every night sometimes you have a mix it up! I flip through cookbook after cookbook and look on pinterest for hours …

Award Winning Chili

Chili and Cornbread is one of my husbands very favorite meals. Even though it usually stays pretty hot here until the end of October I always try to throw in some soups here and there through out the month of October. Then when the busy holiday months of November and December come soups are had once a week. Chili is a perfect meal to make ahead or to throw together when you are in a pinch. Make this chili with Krusteaz Cornbread and you have yourself a great meal! Award Winning Chili 1 1/2 pound ground beef 1 pound ground sausage 2 …

Pesto Peach Pasta

This pasta may seem a little random to some but these flavors somehow taste amazing together. One of my moms best friends named Jill gave her this pasta recipe. Every recipe I have ever tried of Jill’s is out of this world. This recipe is just that. During the late summer months peaches are ripe everywhere. I order a large box of peaches from Utah that get shipped here and there are gone very very fast. Usually just plain, with cream, or in desserts. That is why every year I throw in this recipe at least once to have a …
