Slow Cooker BBQ Chipotle Chicken Burritos

The spicy shredded chipotle chicken in these burritos has become a staple in our house. We often make a huge batch in the beginning of the week and use it in all sorts of dishes. It’s great in tacos, over rice, or even with eggs for breakfast. However, these burritos are probably my favorite way to use…

Wingless Buffalo Risotto with a Blue Cheese Sauce

Okay, this recipe was a total accident. After making a huge batch of mushroom risotto over the weekend, we ended up with a ton of leftovers. We’ve pretty much been eating risotto with every meal since then. For lunch one day, my husband grabbed a bowl of leftover risotto and poured buffalo sauce all over it. It…

Super-Creamy Roasted Garlic

Super-Creamy Roasted Garlic (And How to Freeze It!)

Roasted garlic is one of my favorite ingredients that really elevates the flavors of a dish. While raw garlic has an astringent taste, roasted garlic is creamy and much sweeter. It’s a great addition to soups, salad dressing, dips, mashed potatoes, or as a spread for toast. These golden little nuggets are so good that you can…

After spending a few days in the Grand Teton National Park, we headed north to Yellowstone. Yellowstone National Park is probably my absolute favorite park within the United States. Banff National Park is right up there too, but that’s because we got married there. Although the geysers are impressive and the valleys are beautiful, the wildlife…

After visiting the Antelope Slot Canyons near Page, Arizona, we arrived at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. We are staying in a cabin right on the rim of the canyon. It’s been a lot of fun watching the sunrises and sunsets from our porch rocking chairs. We’ve stayed in these cabins countless times during my childhood,…

After visiting Carlsbad Caverns, we headed north through Taos to Durango, Colorado. When I was a child, we took the historic steam-powered train from Durango to Silverton through the beautiful San Juan mountains. We sat in one of the open train cars, so we could enjoy the incredible weather and views. We didn’t even bother to bring…

Tandoori Chicken Pizza with a Cilantro-Mint Chutney

Every time we head into town to see a play or musical, we always try to pick a new restaurant for dinner. There are some great dives and food trucks downtown, so it’s always fun to try something new. Recently, we went into town to see Mama Mia and stopped by a great little Indian-Italian…
