‘Chorizo’ Sweet Potato and Black Bean Tacos

Been a tough week. Our flight to visit my in-laws got cancelled due to a major winter storm, I’ve had THE worst heartburn all week thanks to our growing little one, and it’s been so bitter cold here, it’s enough to burn a person out. That being said, a little heat from some vegetarian ‘chorizo’ …

Banana Cinnamon Roll Smoothie

If you’re anything like me, smoothies are a staple breakfast in our house. There’s so much variety and you can pack so much into one glass.

Meal prepping? Making your staple main course and need a good side dish? Whatever the reason, quinoa is a fabulous alternative to rice and other high carb dishes.
