Pizza Salad

Pizza Salad - YES, salad that tastes like pizza!

I’m gonna go way out on a limb and say that this salad tastes just like pizza. It even smells just like pizza. It has all the elements of a pizza except you’re also eating a ton of leafy greens and feeling darn good afterwards.

Consider this pizza salad a detox of sorts. Maybe you want to eat it before the big Thanksgiving meal, or the day after. It will fill your body with healthy, whole foods that are full of fiber and vitamins. It’s not too hard to throw together which is perfect if you’re tired of cooking.

This little darling graduated homeschool kindergarten this week. We celebrated with a new globe (don’t mock, she loved it), getting to play some of daddy’s video games, and ice cream. Now we’re moving on to first grade and I’m simultaneously excited and nervous. This material should be much more challenging for her (and me, more…

Butternut Squash and Kale Pizza

Pizza, pizza! We’re cruising right past autumn and stopping at winter. But that doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy our favorite autumn flavors.

Travel: Mixed 2014

Dixie Crystals sponsored my trip to Mixed. All opinions are, as always, my own. I’ve been traveling a lot lately, which came to a close this past weekend when I attended Mixed in the mountains of Virginia.

Double Chocolate Banana Muffins

I don’t eat as many muffins as I used to. I might be getting just a tiny bit old and need to start watching what I eat better. I can’t just eat whatever I want whenever I want anymore because it sticks to my bones more than it used to. While I would have no…

Open Faced Mediterranean Egg Sandwich

Eggs are magical. They’re really unique in the number of ways they can be prepared. Scrambled, omelette, over easy, hard boiled, and more. Most people have a favorite way to prepare eggs. When I was a kid my grandma would make the world’s runniest scrambled eggs. I almost couldn’t eat them because it was just…

Avocado, Yellow Rice, and Roasted Chickpea Burrito

  Heyyyyyy. We’ve been detoxing, gastronomically and emotionally, from our trip to Kansas City last weekend. There’s always a little detox involved when the kids have spent a few days with grandparents (you know what I’m talking about). We’re also coming down from eating all the things and having the time of our lives pretending…

Travel Like a Local: Kansas City and ChoppedCon

Travel Like a Local: Kansas City and ChoppedCon

I had been roaming the foggy market for just a few minutes, eyeing up dollar packages of strawberries(!) and round, shiny apples. I knew I wanted something more than fruit for breakfast but wasn’t sure what I would find hidden in the walls of the mysterious market. A man stopped me as I walked by…
