Southwest Cabbage Rolls

Let me start by saying I intended to name this dish Cabbage Burritos or Low-Carb Wet Burritos, but my mom didn’t like those names. She said they sounded weird and gross and like something you don’t want to eat. She wanted me to name it Stuffed Cabbage. We settled on Southwest Cabbage Rolls. I made…

White Chocolate Red Velvet Cake

Red Velvet is a staple in my family. My bonus daughter is highly addicted–and by addicted I mean she could eat an entire cake in a day if you let her. One of my nephews also loves Red Velvet but he prefers his Red Velvet sans the cream cheese frosting. I know, I know. It’s…

Blackened Catfish Tacos

Hello my loves! Where are all my taco heads at? If you love tacos say heeeeeeey! Is it cool to label taco lovers as taco heads? I don’t see why not. We call sneaker lovers sneaker heads. I guess if you love butt then you’re a butthead. Hahaha. Ok. Enough of my lame jokes and…

Sweet Potato Toast

Breakfast might be my favorite meal of the day. The eggs, the bacon, the raisin toast, the biscuits, the bagels, the English muffins, the croissants–it’s all just so good. Can you tell I have a bread problem? Besides the eggs, bread might be what I like the most about breakfast. But when fitness goals are…

Mielle Organics Styling Gel VS. Curl Custard

Hello My Lovies! I pray your week is off to a great start. I have truly been enjoying my return to natural hair. It’s all coming together into a re-introduction of me as a full time mom. And momming is ROUGH, particularly when you’re on a wake every 3 hours sleep schedule. I just don’t…

Conner’s Kitchen + Bar Dessert Flight

Yesterday was my husband’s birthday. And birthdays are a big deal in my house. At least they are to me. I take on the responsibility of planning the birthday of everyone in my household and I like to think I do a pretty good job at it. This year I found a new restaurant for…

Pecan Cinnamon Rolls

I found another use for all those pecans! I needed a quick dish to bring to my small group bible study. Pecans to the rescue! I found a recipe online and totally botched it. It was late when I was making these and once I put them in the oven I realized I completely screwed…

BBQ Pecan & Parm Meatballs (Vegetarian)

Meatless in May has me all kinds of creative in the kitchen. So far all the recipes I’ve tried have been a hit. And tonight’s didn’t fail me. I used the meatball recipe from Blue Bird & Blackberries as my base and made a few changes of my own. Honestly, I wasn’t so sure about…

Coconut Almond Tres Leches Cake

It’s almost Cinco de Mayo! In America we celebrate this holiday as if it is our own celebration. It’s so fun to have tacos and margaritas and chips and guac and everything else that comes along with Cinco de Mayo celebrations. But last night I came across a video on Facebook that made me stop…

Sweet & Spicy Cauliflower Wings

I am a huge lover of cauliflower. I could eat it everyday. I discovered my love for cauliflower at an Indian restaurant. I was on the Daniel fast and I wanted something flavorful but I wasn’t sure what. I explained to the waiter that I wanted something that tasted really good but it couldn’t have…
