Roasted Turkey Thighs

Roasted Turkey Thighs

I know that this post is a bit too early! Thanksgiving is no time soon. But, I saw these Turkey Thighs at the grocery store and knew I needed to make something with them. I’ve never made Turkey Thighs before. You may be a little sick of me mentioning that, but your girl is experimenting all Fall 2018. It’s all about testing out new recipes and seeing what works and what doesn’t. And this recipe definitely works.

Autumn Harvest Spaghetti Squash

Autumn Harvest Spaghetti Squash

Can you believe that this is my first time trying Spaghetti Squash? I know, you’re judging me. But, seriously.. it’s my first time eating it. I’m honestly upset that i haven’t tried it before. It pairs so well with cheese and sauce. But, then again… what doesn’t pair well with cheese and sauce?

Cilantro Honey Chipotle Wings

Cilantro Honey Chipotle Wings

These are officially my favorite way to cook chicken wings. This sauce is perfect. If you’re someone that prefers a spicier sauce, use less honey! I added more honey so that my daughter could eat these wings. The sauce combined with the char from the grill, oh my god, my mouth is watering just typing this! Haha. When it comes to wings and sauces, I love my sauces to be either spicy or sweet and spicy. I don’t like Garlic Parmesan wings, I know, you’re totally judging me right now. I love all three separately, but I have never tried those wings and liked them from anyone. I guess it’s because I don’t think it’s the right cheese used and normally it has way too much damn garlic. I love garlic just as much as anybody else, but I don’t want to be hit in the face with garlic.

Simple Mills Banana Muffins (Featuring Pumpkin, Espresso, & Chocolate Chips)

Simple Mills Banana Muffins (Featuring Pumpkin, Espresso, & Chocolate Chips)

Normally, I make my banana bread from scratch since I always have way too many bananas in my house. Banana bread gets a bad reputation due to it usually having a lot of added sugars. The good thing about this mix from Simple Mills is that it does not have a million unnecessary sugars added. It’s naturally delicious. And, no I am not sponsored by them. I’m just a regular person just like you that bought this mix after seeing it in the Grocery store. Haha.

Feta, Tomato & Basil Pizza + Pesto & Tomato Pizza

Pizza! Pizza! Pizza! For years, pizza was my favorite food because I didn’t have it often and whenever I had it, it would always be absolutely delicious. Foods that I don’t have often (such as lobster, prime rib, oxtail) are so much better than they are because I don’t eat them all the time.

Low Calorie Ground Turkey Chili

Low Calorie Ground Turkey Chili

Chili is a dish that my mother only cooked in the fall and winter. We never ate chili in the summer unless we had no other choice. Chili is a comfort dish in my family since it makes you feel all warm inside and relaxed. Chili makes you want to snuggle in a blanket under fireplace and watch Christmas movies. Well, at least that what it makes me feel.
