Almond-Crusted Sea Bass

Almond-Crusted Sea Bass

I love fish. And tasty yummy, savory coatings on my fish. Like this salmon and this tilapia. So good. So I’ve been hard at work (I mean, eating, really) trying to find new low-carb fish recipes. Instead of using panko, flour or [...]

Lemon-Herb Tilapia

Lemon-Herb Tilapia

I’m writing this post on my phone as I sit on the couch feeding baby Hunter for his bedtime feeding. Dustin is at the gym, working out with his brother. He should be home in about an hour. It’s 8:27pm. The girls are in their bedroom, playing. They are supposed to be in their beds, […]

Kung Pao Scallops

Kung Pao Scallops

I wanted to share this yummy dinner I have made a few times. I don’t usually cook with scallops for some reason, even though they are super easy and fast to prepare. And this recipe is no exception. I love this [...]

Easy Roasted Pork Tenderloin

Easy Roasted Pork Tenderloin

Psst! I have an amazingly easy and fast recipe to share with you today. Have you ever made pork tenderloin before? It's like ridiculously easy and super impressive. And you know how much I like to share these types of [...]

Pork Chops with Carolina Spice Rub

Pork Chops with Carolina Spice Rub

Before Hunter was born, I told Dustin my number one goal for the first six months after giving birth was to get into shape. I hadn't been in the best health before getting pregnant and the pregnancy hadn't really helped me with my whole body image. Plus, due to [...]

Easy Lobster Bisque

Easy Lobster Bisque

Lobster Bisque is one of my absolute favorite things. Without fail, I will order it if at a nice restaurant. It’s kinda like my barometer for whether the restaurant is a “good” restaurant. If I order a lobster bisque [...]

Shrimp-Grits-5

Shrimp and Grits

LOVE me some Shrimp and Grits! Not only is this simple dish amazingly yummy and robust with flavor, it’s also super easy to make. The entire meal can be made in about 30 minutes which makes it a no-brainer for us when we have shrimp on hand. And we intentionally have shrimp on hand.

Chicken Marinara Pizza

By now, you probably know I am a big fan of pizza.  Not only do I have aspirations to open my own pizza and wine bar someday, but I make it at home all the time. Seriously.  All. The. Time. So, you can imagine we go through our fair share of pizza recipes -- tried [...]

Southern Fried Catfish

Who's up for a fish fry?? Now, you know me -- I'm a Southern California girl, born and raised -- but Dustin spent many of his formative years in Dallas, Texas.  To say this Texas upbringing formed his appetite for Southern food would be an understatement.  The man certainly enjoys his fried okra, beef brisket, [...]

Chile Verde

We were out to dinner the other night at Pappasito's, which is quickly becoming our favorite Austin Mexican restaurant, and I saw Hatch Chile Verde Enchiladas was one of the specials. Apparently, they have what are called Hatch Chiles out here and they are just around for a short while.  All of a sudden, restaurants [...]
