Turkey Sausage and Butternut Squash Chili

Turkey Sausage and Butternut Squash Chili

There’s something about chili that screams fall and football.  And there’s something about butternut squash that screams fall.  I guess I’m just over summer and ready for fall.  Don’t get me wrong, I do love summer, but summer in CT is just brutal.  There’s the heat and the humidity and the only thing that makes

Clean Buffalo Meatballs

Believe it or not I’ve never eaten buffalo.  Until the other day.  As much of a foodie that I am, you’d think I would have tried it long before the age of 35.  But it’s just never been front and center in the supermarket where I think – Oh, I should try this.  Until the

Cedar Plank Garlic – Rosemary Salmon

Salmon is one of my favorite fish.  There’s nothing like fresh – caught salmon cooked on a cedar plank.  But to be honest with you I haven’t really had good salmon since I lived in Alaska.  There you could buy fresh salmon right off the boats, or even if you bought it in the store,

Clean Turkey-Quinoa Burritos

I’ve been on a roll with this clean eating stuff.  It’s kind of fun finding stuff I would normally make and then swapping out ingredients to clean it up! So remember how I told you that KB loves Mexican food?  So much so that I’m not convinced he’s not part-Mexican.  Anyways, while eating clean, he

Clean Green Curry Stew

KB loves curry.  Which means I tend to make it a lot.  I like curry too – and there are so many different kinds.  I just have to make sure that it’s not too spicy so the tiny humans can eat it too.  I’ve been making more of the coconut curry – with a curry

Chinese Pepper Chicken

I’ve been on a real chicken kick lately…eating it 4+ times per week on a good week.  Nothing wrong with that, but sometimes I feel like I’m going to start to cluck and lay eggs if I’m not careful.  Seems like sometimes I get stuck in a rut – but that’s really when I like

Breakfast Enchiladas

I love breakfast!   Pretty much any day of the week you could convince me to eat a plate of cheesy eggs and bacon.  What’s not to love about bacon?  I have to limit myself to cooking a good breakfast to the weekends because otherwise I would be a heart attack waiting to happen.  Hah.

Clean Asian Turkey Meatloaf Muffins

I’m still eating clean.  For the most part.  Sometimes.  Well anyways – that’s besides the point.  My momma is visiting and KB is watching his girlish figure, so I decided to try out some clean recipes on them.  And the funny part is – you wouldn’t know they were clean if you tried them!  Now

Cheesy Chicken, Broccoli and Rice Casserole

I have picky children.  Which is weird coming from a foodie like me.  It’s kind of funny because my momma is here visiting me and she noticed that TAB will straight up eat chicken nuggets every day for lunch.  So one day she told TAB if she didn’t eat something different she was going to

Clean Turkey Spaghetti – with Shirataki Noodles

There’s something about a big pot of spaghetti that is satisfying and delicious.  In fact, it’s one of the meals that I am guaranteed to get 4/4 Beckmann’s with clean plates.  What’s even better is when I can make a “clean” meal and still get the clean plates!  So the other day – I threw
