Swenson’s Galley Boy – Copycat Recipe!

Okay, my #1 food weakness in this world has got to be the amazing and delicious Galley Boy burger from the locally-operated burger chain, Swenson’s. I may be able to say “no” to many-a burger, but the Galley Boy just has a supreme power over me that I cannot deny. Since I (unfortunately or fortunately,…


NutriBullet Basil Pesto

When I first purchased my trusty NutriBullet nearly a year ago, I had no idea the amount of use I’d put the darn thing through. I’m actually very impressed with its durability, because with nearly three uses a day in my household, every day – it has held up quite nicely. Typically, we use it…


A (Cheat) Meal Fit For a Queen!

Sometimes, food presents itself in front of you that is just so amazing, thoughtful, and inspired – it would just be rude to turn it away. Friday night, I had one of those encounters. Ryan and I have been meaning to go to Cafe Toscano in Aurora for quite some time. They are one of…

I mean, who doesn’t love chicken stuffed with other delicious foods? Chicken Cordon Bleu may look pretty fancy, but is actually relatively easy to make. This recipe, originally created by…

My Sweet Valentine

Today I am overwhelmed by a sense of love and happiness. Yesterday (as previously posted on) was Valentine’s Day. And it really was a special day, from beginning to end. I’ve been with Ry now for 8 years, and every single Valentine’s Day we share is special. We don’t always do a ton – but…


Cheesy Jalapeño Popper Baked Stuffed Chicken

Okay, I realize this blog isn’t technically “active” yet, so who knows how many people will actually get to see this post when it goes live (to be best guesstimate… none). But I thought this would be a great recipe for the blog to have in its Archives, and I’m just so damn excited about…
