Moroccan Tagine

This is one of our favorite recipes because of the bold spices and memories we have from Morocco. I have yet to invest in an actual tagine (the dome-shaped dish it’s named for), this dish can easily be made in a stock pot. Although I’ve already shared a tagine recipe, this one is a little…

Loaded Vegan Tacos

Here’s something to spice up your next #tacoTuesday – Paired with your favorite hot sauce, there is no bad day for a veggie taco! I am so excited to finally reap some herbs and lettuce from our backyard garden, which I used in this recipe. Ingredients: 1 cup olive oil, divided 1 yellow onion, diced…

Penne Pasta with Peas, Spinach, and Beurre Blanc

Although I tend to make really healthy food decisions, I never have been able to get away from pasta. Obviously, some pastas are better than others (homemade is my favorite when I have some extra time!), but on a busy weeknight, it’s incredibly easy to throw together and it always hits the spot! This week…

Mixed Bean Casserole with Sweet Potato Mash

I love this recipe because it was really easy to throw together and it consists of super healthy ingredients. It took me under and hour to prepare and cook, which I tend to consider do-able on a weeknight. Ingredients: 3 large sweet potatoes, peeled 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk 4 tsp salt, and black ground…

Deconstructed Burrito with Spinach, Corn, and Black Beans

It’s no secret that I could eat Mexican food for every meal for the rest of my life. Nonetheless, the idea of flour tortillas (no matter how delicious) makes me feel over-full, not to mention the amount of white flour involved. This simple recipe eliminates the tortillas and instead, calls for brown rice (a much…

Kenya: The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust

If you know anything about me, you know I love animals. I don’t discriminate – I love literally all of them. So of course, traveling around Kenya was a total dream come true because I got to see so many furry, ferocious, and majestic animals of all species. Because I can’t possibly cover our whole…

Fusilli Pasta with Romaine, Chickpeas, and White Wine Broth

This quick recipe is super easy to throw together on a weeknight and has just enough kick to it to keep you wanting more! If you’re not a big fan of spicy, either reduce or eliminate the red chili flakes. If you do choose to eliminate them, you may want to compensate with black pepper….

Orange, Carrot, and Ginger Juice

This is my all-time favorite juice recipe. For me, the fresh citrus + ginger taste never gets old. It’s always a refreshing pick-me-up and it’s pretty simple to make! Really, you can add any fruits or vegetables you have in your fridge. Some examples: Celery, cucumber, apples, pineapple, mango, peaches, lemons, etc. Last year around…

Puerto Rico

After a (very) long year with so many ups, downs, and straight-up unknowns, we knew we needed to take a little time for ourselves. Although we don’t experience snowy or especially cold winters in Texas, we really missed the heat! We decided to plan a beach vacation. After a lot of research on deciding where…

Big Bend & Lajitas

I already know what you’re thinking – traveling during COVID? Yep. Between both of us working from home, not leaving the house, and vacation days adding up, we decided to take a little trip to a very secluded destination. We thought it would be a safer choice since most activities would be outdoors and independent…
