Skillet Cornbread with Creamed Corn is the epitome of down-home Southern cooking! I have tried many cornbread recipes, and let me say, they are NOT created equal! I have made everything from the Jiffy box and Marie Callender’s premix to Paula Deen and the Pioneer Woman’s homemade recipes. Each has their claim to fame, but in my opinion, this recipe from The Kitchn is the best. It has the perfect amount of sweetness, it stays moist but crumbly, and the chunks of corn spread evenly throughout the bread. My family and I loved it so much that the entire cast iron skillet was empty by the time the sun went down. Don’t judge me! [Read more…] about Skillet Cornbread with Creamed Corn

Fall is here and in my kitchen that means soup season has begun! One of the lighter and healthier versions I like to make is my 3 Bean Vegetarian Chili. It has all the comfort of a hearty bowl of soup on a cold day without the fat that likes to stick around my waistline. Even though this is a vegetarian chili, the flavors are bold. I like to let the flavors meld all day in the slow cooker, but if necessary, I can have this in our bowls in less than 30 minutes from the stovetop. And if you’d like to learn how to make your own chili seasoning, I have a combination you’ll love just a few scrolls down. Let me show you how to make it: [Read more…] about Hearty 3 Bean Vegetarian Chili

Last week I introduced you to an awesome teriyaki marinade that I used in a pork chop stir-fry. The marinade can be used on virtually any piece of meat and can help you create a lot of variety in the kitchen. This teriyaki shrimp stir-fry uses the same great marinade but has a totally different feel on the plate. It is light, healthy, and delicious. It is the perfect dinner to serve during the last days of summer when you want to enjoy the fresh produce of the season and don’t want to heat up your kitchen with a hot oven. Teriyaki shrimp is also pretty quick; you can have dinner on the table in 30 minutes. [Read more…] about 30 Minute Teriyaki Shrimp and Vegetables
How much do you love Iced Coffee? I’m not going to lie, I pretty much live on it during the summer months. Come mid-April I’m ready to trade my hot caramel macchiato for an iced coffee until about October when I can resist the pull of a pumpkin spiced latte no longer. But let’s be real, I can’t afford to go to Starbucks everyday. So I set out to find a cheaper way to have my favorite drink. Since I used to work at Starbucks, I can honestly tell you that this tastes like the real thing for a fraction of the price. You need a whooping 3 ingredients for this dream come true, so hold onto your hats while I show you how amazing this is.
