Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Nacho Potatoes

It has been a week. I know it seems as if I say that every week, and, well, I do, but this week is HOMECOMING. Even though I’m not on the court, it’s kind of a stressful week for everyone: homecoming dues, homecoming floats, homecoming pictures It’s a fun but hectic time. And to celebrate […]

Goat Cheese Stuffed Roasted Chicken

“Chicken? I could eat some chicken.” FRIENDS. Gosh, I love it. Remember that episode? Watch this clip. Please, just watch it. And just so we’re clear, I’m totes a Monica.

Three Cheese Stovetop Skinny Spinach Artichoke Dip

…with bacon. I know. It’s a lot to take in. Three cheeses:cream cheese, parmesan, and fontina (oh, blessed fontina). Stovetop:creamy, warm, cheesy bliss that doesn’t have to be baked.

It’s loaded with protein (eggs), fiber (veggies), and […]

Brie and Bacon Grilled Cheese with Jam and Rosemary

So, generally, sandwiches aren’t my thing. Turkey, bread, blah, blah. I need something more exciting in my life. Enter this sandwich. I’ve written before about my love for Crave. I just didn’t know how much I loved it until I tried their Brie and Bacon Grilled Cheese with Fig Jam on Rosemary Focaccia. Long title, […]

Shrimp and Grits with Corn + Bacon

I’m a recent shrimp and grits fiend. Even though I’m Southern, tried and true, I hadn’t ever eaten shrimp and grits untilabout a month ago. Let me tell you. Life-changing experience right there. Much like these. The corn adds a zippy, crisp sweetness to the perfectly savory cheese grits. One of my cardinal rules of […]
