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!

Stuffing In A Bundt Pan

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

Black Bean Chili with Acorn Squash and Toasted Pepitas

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!

Twelve Stones, Loved It!

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.

Twelve StonesSaturday 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

Paleo Cinnamon Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread

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.The Paleo Kitchen 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.
