Easy Garlic Jalapeño Refrigerator Pickles

You guys I made pickles for the first time ever and it was SO easy and SO delicious I have to share! The house we closed on a month ago came with 5 chickens and a massive garden and pretty soon we had cucumbers coming out of our ears. I’ve always wanted to try toContinue reading “Easy Garlic Jalapeño Refrigerator Pickles”

Easiest Pesto Pasta

When we first starting exploring the yard at our new house, I noticed a few sad looking basil plants along the potato patch. Side note: I’ve learned that chickens kind of eat everything—like my chives, baby Swiss chard, baby lettuce—but only when they feel like it. So they miraculously left my plants alone for weeksContinue reading “Easiest Pesto Pasta”

Easy Spinach, Onion & Cheddar Frittata

So we inherited five chickens (and a garden) with the house we closed on about two months ago! We named them Hen-Solo, Meg-hen, Henneth Paltrow, Dolly Part-hen, and Hei Hei (seriously so proud of myself). They’ve kinda become my favorite thing! Hei Hei is missing at least half her feathers since she’s at the bottomContinue reading “Easy Spinach, Onion & Cheddar Frittata”

It’s been super fun to explore new things so I’m always stoked about what we’re eating! Recipe notes: IfContinue reading “Easy Beef Stroganoff”

Homemade salad dressing is the bomb. It’s wicked easy to make, cheap, and helps prevent plastic waste! AND most importantly it’s delicious. This is a single serving recipe but you can also make a larger batch and store it in the fridge. You can also try a thicker, higher protein version with Greek yogurt. ThisContinue reading “Spicy Honey-Mustard Dressing for One”

Whole Wheat Tortilla Chips

We made an insane amount of pita chips for our wedding but I’ve never tried tortilla chips till today! These are so good and take just 10 minutes in the toaster oven and this recipe is for one tortilla but you can make as many as you’re hungry for. They can also either be sweetContinue reading “Whole Wheat Tortilla Chips”

Crock-Pot BBQ Chicken

I’m kicking myself right now that I haven’t made more crock-pot chicken. Or used a crock-pot regularly, period! It’s literally the quickest and easiest way to make juicy, flavorful, chicken. This pulled BBQ chicken is super versatile (and husband-approved)! Serve it over rice, in a taco, wrap, on a roll, or on a pizza orContinue reading “Crock-Pot BBQ Chicken”
