Rustic Pizza

Today I’m talking about a super easy and delicious pizza recipe! I can’t take all the credit for it though. Living in Texas, there was a flatbread pizza I used to LOVE from a local restaurant. I tried recreating it, since I knew everything that came on it—and my recipe turned out so good! When you make the pizza, you can use whatever crust you like, such as the prepared flat outs in the grocery store or even pita bread! I use pizza dough … Continue Reading »


What’s Been Cookin’ Part 2!

So last week Liz mentioned a new strategy she’s been trying to make meal planning easier at her house called PrepDish! Check out that post here if you haven’t already!  I wanted to try to do better with my meal planning as well because food truly is the way to my husband’s heart, haha! But with my “all-day” morning sickness I had been dealing with, I seriously did not want to look at food, think about food or prep food! Thankfully, I received a coupon … Continue Reading »


What’s Been Cookin’

To mix things up, over the last few weeks Angie and I have both been trying different methods of meal planning. Angie has been using Hello Fresh (which she’ll talk about) and thanks to a college friend and also my love for Jamie Ivey’s podcasts, I heard about a subscription prep-ahead meal plan called Prepdish. We both went two different meal planning routes but have thoughts so far with our adventures…. Today, its Prepdish. And I’m a fan! This meal planning subscription gives … Continue Reading »


Rattlesnake Pasta {with no snakes I promise!}

Hi everyone!! I’m Stephanie, Angie’s totally rad and awesome younger sister! We are exactly 2 years and one day apart, but are so completely opposite, in the best way possible!   I am a hairstylist and live with my boyfriend and dog in Michigan. I love to cook and I know my boyfriend probably loves it just as much when I cook for him! This is one of my recipes that’s his favorite called “Rattlesnake Pasta.” It is a dish from J Alexanders … Continue Reading »


BCD

Have you ever had a favorite dish that when you eat it, it brings back memories or makes you think of special people in your life? With friends on my mind and football season right around the corner, I thought I’d share one of my favorite dips—Buffalo Chicken Dip (BCD.) I know the exact date this dip became a part of my life (such a sentimental day, jk, lol!) My good friend and roommate Claire was attempting a “new dip” for a party … Continue Reading »


Home Again With A Side of Coffee & Crackers

And just like that, we are home. Liz and I are back in the good ol’ south and it is soo HOT! I’ve loved the heat in Arizona and Texas, but this kind of humid Georgia heat is by far the most brutal! It’s good to be back and start settling in though. We already had dinner with Liz’s family last night, and all 4 girls were glad to be reunited and to enjoy some yummy popsicles. One last hometown favorite I had … Continue Reading »


A Favorite Hometown Salad & More!

We made it to Ohio, and yesterday my husband, daughter, and I stayed pretty busy! We headed out after breakfast to the mall to walk around and see how everything has changed. Then we stopped by to visit my youngest sister at work. Aren’t they so sweet?! We had some lunch and then went to our old high school stomping grounds! When we walked in, I told the office lady we were just visiting to see the place after graduating 12 YEARS AGO! Ah! She … Continue Reading »


Family Date Night

The other day I found a yummy recipe on Pinterest that was titled “Date Night Mushroom Pasta with Goat Cheese.” Hello—mushrooms, goat cheese, pasta and a date night combined, sounded fabulous. I mentioned the recipe to Angie and we decided to try it together for the weekly dinners we like to have at one of our houses. So, last night was the night we had our “date night” dinner together with this new recipe. It obviously wasn’t a real date night with our … Continue Reading »


Cheesy Potato Casserole {with Greek Yogurt}

This recipe is a family favorite that my mom has been making for YEARS! It’s great for large family gatherings, cookouts, and holidays! This time, I made a little adaptation to my mom’s original recipe in order to make it a touch healthier. I’m sure you could come up with more healthy changes as well!  I love how quickly I can whip this recipe together for a get together (like last night!). Once you mix everything together in a large fry pan, you just transfer … Continue Reading »
