Creamy Chicken Tikka Masala

During our summer road trip, Elliott and I had the opportunity to eat at some really great restaurants. Our favorites included a brewhouse in Colorado, a tapas restaurant in New Mexico, and a pizza parlor in Wyoming. However, our all-time favorite restaurant was a small Indian place just outside of Salt Lake City, Utah. Their Lamb Tikka…

Skinny Crispy Oven-Fried Cod

I love the crunchy exterior of fried fish, but try to stay away from deep-fried foods as much as possible. However, oven-baked fish filets are often not as crispy and can easily be overcooked. This recipe is different. These cod filets are juicy and tender, with a beautiful golden brown crust. I’ve also added a little…

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

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…

Buffalo and Blue Cheese Loaded French Fries

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…

Loaded Buffalo Hot Dogs

Loaded Buffalo Hot Dogs

Grand Teton National Park has always been one of my favorite stops during our summer road trips. Elliott and I are staying in a cozy little cabin in the woods and have been loving our hikes with spectacular views of the mountains. We spent the late afternoon picnicking by Jackson Lake, enjoying the views of the…

S'more Trail Mix

S’more Trail Mix

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,…

Barbecue Peach Meatballs

Barbecue Peach Meatballs

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…
