Chicken Fajita Quesadillas

There are many dishes I love. Two that fall in my favorites category are quesadillas and fajitas. So I figured, why not combine theme? I mean to me they’re a match made in heaven! Oh and did I mention how easy these are to make! Yeah it might…

Buffalo Falafel w/Sweet Potato Fries

So for anyone following our blog, I’m sure you’ve quickly realized we are obsessed with Half Baked Harvest. Ironically that obsession began with me not even realizing it. It was a little less than three years ago and I had just moved to Maryland to be…

Crispy Baked Chicken Wings

If I were to have a list of top 5 favorite food items, chicken wings would be on the list no question. Growing up, our family had a favorite wing shack called Murray’s Wings & Ribs. I always went with the garlic, extra crispy. That last part was…

Guacamole

Tomorrow is our one year anniversary. It’s crazy to think we’ve already been married a year. It was a day neither of us will ever forget and are so thankful for all of our family and friends that were able to join us. So much has…

Shrimp and Grits

In Maryland, it is still peach season, so what does that mean? Well since it’s Friday which is also pizza night in our household, it means trying another pizza with peaches! I was inspired by Half Baked Harvest to make this one. You might think that we would…

Turkey Meatballs

I’ll admit, I never had turkey meatballs before I met Lauren. I guess it was just something that never occurred to our family. If we had meatballs, we had beef meatballs. However, using turkey as an alternative to beef was something I was introduced to pretty early in…

Baked Chicken Nuggets

It’s almost a weekly tradition where it’s around 4 pm in the afternoon and Lauren and I are texting each other trying to figure out what we want for dinner. Most of the time I end up picking something but I always bug Lauren to make…
