Pasta Primavera (Fresh Veggie Pasta)

Mom life has really put a halt on my cooking time, not that I’m complaining. We have resorted to eating Subway a few too many times now, and I finally decided I needed to do some meal prepping so we didn’t feel the need to run to Subway (or worse options) every time we get …

Vegetarian Spinach and Bean Enchiladas

Been on a kick for enchiladas lately and trying out different mixtures of sauce, spices, veggies, and bean combos in them.

Simple Vegetarian Quesadilla

When you’re at work and feeling like death, take advantage of sick time and go home to rest. I was surprised to find I was hungry being the crazy headache and nausea I was experiencing all morning (no this is definitely not the same as morning sickness)! I needed something that was easy and not …
