Pasta with Toasted Breadcrumbs, Crispy Prosciutto, and Peas

Pasta with Toasted Breadcrumbs, Crispy Prosciutto, and Peas by Rachel

This is one of those meals that you can have on the table in the time that it takes to boil water and cook the pasta. It's super fast, filling, delicious, and easy. Toasty breadcrumbs, savory prosciutto, sweet peas, and tender pasta all come together for a delicious, delicious meal.The days are getting a little longer, the weather a…

Chewy Whole Grain Chocolate, Date, and Walnut Bars

Chewy Whole Grain Chocolate, Date, and Walnut Bars by Rachel

We've been dairy-free for many months now (8ish? 9ish?) and I think it's finally become the norm for us. I actually don't crave cheesy things (much) like lasagna or queso anymore but I do miss some desserts. I have to really search for chocolate that is both dairy and nut-free and subbing coconut oil for butter doesn't always work,…

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…

Pretzel Dogs

Pretzel Dogs by Rachel

The dough came together really easily in my stand mixer, rose beautifully, and was so easy to work with. I don't really even have any extra tips aside from what's listed in the recipe below. Definitely set aside a couple of hours to make these for a special, fun occasion. I even sort of want to make these for Thanksgiving but I…

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…

Glazed Gingerbread Doughnut Muffins

Glazed Gingerbread Doughnut Muffins by Rachel

I know things have been extra quiet around here. I can only say that I've been a little bit distracted by these two:Will is almost 10 months old and in the last few weeks it has become abundantly clear to me that I have two little boys. Tons of wrestling and other boy things are going on. I love it.On to the food, though.I've made…

Honey-Lemon Pasta Salad

Honey-Lemon Pasta Salad by Rachel

I know that cold pasta salad probably doesn't seem super fall-ish as far as food goes, but I just love the ease of them. I love that we can have lunch for several days from just a few minutes work. On top of that, this particular pasta salad hits on all the high notes - sweet, salty, savory, crunchy, has (almost)…

Roasted Chickpea and Vegetable Salad

Roasted Chickpea and Vegetable Salad by Rachel

I'm pretty sure that everyone struggles with what to make or eat for lunch from time to time, I know that I do. While a sandwich is easy, it's not always all that filling or satisfying. Sometimes you just want or need more. Enter this salad. It's full of vegetables and chickpeas then topped with an herb filled dressing. I've made…

Coconut Oatmeal Cookies (dairy free)

Coconut Oatmeal Cookies (dairy free) by Rachel

So these cookies are now what I will judge all other cookies by. Sure, sure, I've had favorites before but this is my new standard. Every bite of every cookie of this entire batch (and the next one) we sheer perfection. Sweet, chewy, crisp edges, full of coconut and oatmeal and flipping good.This recipe does use coconut oil…

Tex-Mex Chicken & Pasta Skillet

Tex-Mex Chicken & Pasta Skillet by Rachel

You know those nights where you take chicken (or some other protein) out of the freezer for dinner and then dinner rolls around and you have no idea what to make with it? Yeah. I hate those evenings. However, this was one time where I didn't follow my menu for the week and it turned out so great.Sometimes I just go with whatever…
