John’s Tuesday schedule brings him home later than normal and the kids and I are always finished with dinner and getting ready for bed by the time he’s walking through the door. Tonight I made my normal Tuesday night Paleo Tacos which vanished into the bottomless pits which are my children, leaving none for dad!
2011 Super Bowl Eats
Before we get to the food, here’s a bit of fun trivia about this years super bowl! Aaron Rodgers, quarterback for the Green Bay Packers is a Chico, CA native. Yup, born and raised right here in my home town. Pretty cool considering how freaking hard it is to get in the NFL! So yes, we will be cheering on the Packers in hopes to

Recipes for the season
I tossed together a few appetizer options, a scrumptious festive soup, and a decadent dessert in hopes that my little gift of recipes will help ease the stress that is often associated with this time of year.

Here’s a delicious and amazingly easy seafood stew recipe that I would like to share with you.
Shrimp Flying Saucers…
Yes, name is a bit corny, but I swear the tomatoes in Northern California are so freaking huge right now they remind me of flying saucers after I slice them!! So, hence the name. I made this for lunch the other day and Rowan (the 2 year old) ate about half of it, no joke. Actually, as I type this, I wish I had some
Ginger Shrimp Salad and Curried Hash
If you haven’t noticed, I LOVE to cook – but sometimes I get stuck in the same old chicken salad rut because it’s easy, and I know we all like it.

Grill It Up – Salmon Two Ways….
I’m so grateful for the warm weather that has finally arrived here in Chico, CA. We sat outside last night to eat our awesome salmon dinner and maybe it was my glass of wine that did it, but I was in a happy yet contemplative mood. While all the craziness in this world often lingers on the periphery of our day to day lives, it’s important to sit back and realize
Three Recipes For That Snack Attack!!
I really like corn chips. Give me some corn chips AND guacamole and I will love you forever. The problem is, I don’t feel so great after gorging out on corn chips and although I could eat them every day, we all know that’s not the best idea. So, when I am getting that snack attack for some chips and guacamole, I will instead substitute the chips for
