This is my first attempt at making gumbo and I think it turned out pretty darn good! I had originally made this recipe for Simply Organic’s Cajun style recipes and I just had to to share it with y’all. I made this recipe using chicken and sausage, but I think shrimp or ham would also make a delicious addition.
Hope y’all had a fantastic holiday! We sure did! It was nice and quiet this year with just my little fam and some friends from out of town. We got one tree up and the outside of the house decorated for Christmas. So we were productive too. Yay us!
Happy Thanksgiving week all! Sorry this post is so late. I had full intentions of posting this recipe last week and things just got crazy. Tis the season!
Even if you have already gotten your ingredients for Thanksgiving stuffing, no worries, you can still make this recipe and bake it in a bundt pan. Any stuffing recipe will work I would just add an additional 3 eggs to your recipe to ensure the stuffing stays moist. Continue reading
Whelp this salad is amazing! This would make a perfect addition to your holiday menu. Your guests will love it! I promise! It’s super easy to make and you only need one pan. My favorite kind of meal.
Hope y’all had an awesome Halloween! We sure did! We had some friends over for a light dinner. I made this Pumpkin Soup and this Pomegranate Cashew Arugula Salad with Balsamic Dressing and homemade Mac and Cheese. With our bellies full we were ready to hit the neighborhood for some serious trick or treating! The kids ended up lots of treats and the parents enjoyed some wine and good conversation. It was a great night!
As I mentioned in my last post it’s chili month here at Kim’s Healthy Eats. Yay! You can never have too many chili recipes in my book!
It’s fall ya’ll! And it’s chili month over here at Kim’s Healthy Eats. I had originally created this recipe for my friends over at Simply Organic, but I decided it was too good not to share with all of you!
Some of my favorite things about this chili recipe is that it doesn’t take long to cook, it can easily be made in one pot, and tastes absolutely delish. Continue reading
This past weekend we had family visiting our new home here in Flower Mound, TX. It was really great to see everyone and the kids had a blast. It’s been such a big change moving our family away from everything we’ve ever known.
Saturday night was adult night out on the town so of course we had to find a place to have a nice dinner since we wouldn’t have the added stress of keeping the kids happy while we eat. I chose to take them to Twelve Stones since I heard so many wonderful things about it, it was nice and close to home and let’s face it, I personally really wanted to go there finally.
Let’s just say they met all expectations! The service was top notch and the food was absolutely delicious. It was a perfect TX evening so of course we had to sit outside. Continue reading

As fall weather quickly approaches I have been craving chili. Not just any chili, but Buffalo Chicken Chili! So I headed over to my local Albertsons grocery store for their huge Stock Up Anniversary Sale. They had just about all of the ingredients for the chili on sale. Score! Not only do I love a good chili, but I also love a good sale! Continue reading
A few months ago I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of The Paleo Kitchen written by George Bryant and Juli Bauer. I was so excited to get in my tiny apartment kitchen and try out these amazing recipes! I have made many of their recipes in the past so I new it was going to be an awesome cookbook. Well then life got in the way, we bought a house and needed to move quickly. So this gorgeous cookbook was packed away. I finally got the house unpacked and was so excited when I finally found this treasure packed away in a box.
The Paleo Kitchen starts with tips on getting started on the paleo diet, then transitions into a list of seasonal list of fruits and veggies which certainly helps keeping the grocery budget in check. Then they move onto panty essentials and kitchen tools to make your life easier in the kitchen. They also discuss how to cook smarter and proper food storage. I think this is great resource for the beginner cook who may be completely overwhelmed and not sure where to start.
Now onto the recipes! I’m not sure where to start! Everything looks and sounds amaaaazing. My first recipe was the Cinnamon Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread.
