I subscribe to Rachel Ray Everyday magazine and I always try a few recipes out … Continue

Savory Sunday Vol. 83 | March Eats

March was not the most exciting food month ever. I was working more often AND both of our cars ended up getting wrecked (which made grocery shopping trickier, even after we had a rental car). That translated into fewer home cooked meals and more Chipotle. Jake and I still got … Continue

I’m back again to share our food highlights, this time from the past two weeks (because I missed last weekend). I’ve made it a goal to make at least one new recipe a week, and over the past two weeks I tried three new things.

Coffee at Broadway Cafe in Kansas City

This week I don’t have much in the way of dinners to share because my mom, who has been staying with us, took charge this week. So I thought I’d switch it up and share other meals!

Bcause coffee is my favorite edible on the planet, I’m counting coffee dates … Continue

Buttermilk Pancakes

Here are our food highlights lately!

I’ve been trying a new recipe every week, and last week the new thing was Moroccan spice rubbed steak with couscous and roasted veggies. The spice was really the only part that was from a recipe, the rest was from-my-brain-magic. I cut steak into … Continue

Tequila Lime Chicken | The Nerd Nest

We had a good food week around here! We started off with one of my favorites, tequila lime chicken… without the tequila. Because I’ve found that it doesn’t really need it. This meal is one of our family staples; I love how flavorful and simple it is.

Make a baked potato bar for a party!

This week we had Eliza’s birthday dinner with our family. I had to come up with a good idea that she’d love, was easy and affordable to make for a lot of people, and was not pizza (because we just did that for Jonas’s party). We went with a … Continue

Savory Sunday Vol. 76 at the Nerd Nest

Wahoo! It’s the first Savory Sunday of 2014! The meals I’m sharing this week are from our Denver trip and the days right before, including Jonas’s birthday.

We’ve been busy in the kitchen lately! We’re taking a it’s-cold-and-we’re-hermits break from the farmer’s market until after Christmas is over, but we’re still using some local stuff in our cooking. We’ve been working with some of our storage veggies, but most of our produce is coming from the grocery … Continue
