In January of 2017, I was so burned out from 2016 that I was not even able to think about resolutions for the year. Instead, I had some loose ideas that I kept in the back of my mind throughout the year, and after re-reading that blog post, I was surprised to see that I
So let me just start by saying that HOLY COW I can’t believe I completed this project. Admittedly, some of my posts were late, but I still got them in. Listen, life is busy, ok! Also, I will not be able to sustain 52 New Eats in 2018. First, it was a lot of work.
Two years ago, a dear friend of ours, Lyle, came to visit at Christmas time and brought a beautiful jar of bourbon pecans, and I scoffed, because I hate pecans. Or… so I thought… Cuz then I ate one of these and I couldn’t stop eating them, and I insisted on getting the recipe from
A friend of mine shared this recipe video on my Facebook feed a few weeks ago, and I knew immediately I had to make these nachos. La Bomba Nachos, fools! So I did change some things.

A couple weeks ago my girl Jodie over at //Two Lucky Spoons// posted a recipe on Instagram of her Ham Broccoli and Potato Chowder and my mouth instantly started watering. Only problem is, I kinda hate ham (fight me), but I’m also leaning towards vegetarian lately. So I asked her, could I make it without
So I am always down to try Paleo recipes because they are grain-free and sugar-free, which I realize sounds icky, but can sometimes be really good! I also love the flavor of coconut oil so when I saw this recipe for //coconut oil fudge//, I was all about it. This recipe literally could NOT have
Ahhh chicken saltimbocca. Not the prettiest dish to photograph, but a delicious dish to devour. I am not even really sure where this recipe came from, it’s one of those that have been in my family forever. I probably found it on the interwebz back in the days I first started cooking and it has
If there’s one vegetable I could eat for the rest of my life, it would be the potato. (Shut up, they are too vegetables.) I love potatoes. I could literally eat them with every meal. So when I was flipping through a recent edition of Bon Appetit, and saw this new method for roasting potatoes,
