Have An At-Home Pizza Night

ChiChi's Pizza

Growing up, my family didn’t eat out very often. If we did, we were usually celebrating someone’s birthday at ChiChi’s Pizza. Our order was always the same: large antipasto salad and a pepperoni and mushroom pizza “cut the old fashioned way.” We loved that pizza. Hubs learned early on that he had to like ChiChi’s Pizza if he […]

Potato Nachos

Potato Nachos

We love southwest flavors at our house. In fact, we probably eat more Mexican style food than any other flavor profile. Not everything is “authentic,” but typically it’s delicious. Homemade pico de gallo is a staple in our fridge. Necessity is the mother of invention, particularly when it comes to dinnertime. Recently I found myself […]

A Review of Abundant Harvest Organics

Abundant Harvest Organics week 1

Last year, I tried out a local CSA, or community supported agriculture, membership. We did it for about a month. At the end we concluded that it wasn’t the right fit for us. We found that there were a lot of vegetables we didn’t normally use and that the price was a little steep for […]
