Applesauce Oat Muffins

Applesauce Oat Muffins by Rachel

So I have another muffin recipe for you. And it's from Mel's Kitchen Cafe. I think there's a theme going on here. ;) Two things that I love, I guess: muffins and Mel's blog.These are the sort of thing that are pretty humble and very straightforward but are just so good. Slightly spiced and very moist, they are a definite favorite…

Whole Grain Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Whole Grain Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins by Rachel

I really love keeping our freezer stocked with muffins for a quick breakfast or to grab a snack when hunger strikes. Jack definitely loves muffins and I don't think that Will is far behind in his love for them, either, so any time that I can incorporate whole grains, I count that as a win, especially if they are to start off the…

Italian-Style Chicken and Vegetable Quinoa Stew

Italian-Style Chicken and Vegetable Quinoa Stew by Rachel

With winter temperatures in full effect (yes, even in the south), I've had soup/stew/chili on my brain nearly constantly. When my meal plan fell short by one meal last week, I was mentally going through blog posts that I'd saved. I kept coming back to this stew from Josie's blog. I've never made anything from her blog that we…

Clementine Margaritas

Clementine Margaritas by Rachel

Usually I'm sort of a margarita purist - tequila, lime, triple sec. Done. I usually don't even salt my glass. Once in a while, though, I get a craving for something a little different and with almost 10 pounds of clementines staring at me, it was pretty much fate. These are still super simple, just tequila, clementine juice, and…

Pineapple Salsa Rice

Pineapple Salsa Rice by Rachel

Mexican food has become my default when I don't have anything on our meal plan or I don't feel like making whatever it is I had planned for that evening. Originally we were going to grill some fish and roast a bunch of vegetables and call it good on this particular night. But then I was flipping through a magazine that was FULL of…

Deconstructed Falafel Salad

Deconstructed Falafel Salad by Rachel

I have to confess something to you relating to this salad. I've never had falafel. My husband on the other hand, LOOOOVES falafel with his entire being. He always pretends like he's going to order something else when the situation presents itself but he never does. It's always falafel.So I knew immediately when I saw this salad post…

Chocolate Cream Pie for Pi Day

Chocolate Cream Pie for Pi Day by Rachel

PagesChocolate Cream Pie for Pi DayI have had a whole bunch kitchen failures lately, like outright bombs. Dry cakes, cookies falling apart, chewy chicken - it's been an interesting month! ;) Pies have always, always been my nemesis in the kitchen. I've made a few that have been very good but most of them never make it to the blog…

Shredded Beef for Tacos - Slow Cooker

Shredded Beef for Tacos - Slow Cooker by Rachel

PagesShredded Beef for Tacos - Slow CookerSo my slow cooker is definitely getting a workout lately. I could say that it's because we have a newborn and a toddler to take care of but that's not really true. Will is a super easy baby and while Jack is 2, he's pretty easy, as well. (I'm sure I just jinxed that.) The slow cooker is just…
