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. Not sure but I’m thinking baby girl likes Mexican food. 🙂 I was looking at a recipe that used a cheese sauce and some veggie filled enchiladas, and thought I could make this with …

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 …

Easy Teriyaki Vegetable Stir Fry

There are those nights where you get home from work and want dinner quick. It’s not often we haven’t prepared ahead of time, but this was one of those instances.

Breakfast Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Get bored of the same old things for breakfast? Scrambled eggs, peanut butter toast, routine smoothies, breakfast sandwiches, ya da ya da ya da. Well this is one of those things you can make a supply of and change it up everyday. Mashed sweet potatoes for breakfast sounded really strange to me when I first …
