Mexican Veggie Medley + Friday Randoms

Mexican Veggie Medley

What a perfect time of year: the end of summer, the beginning of school, the beginning of (slightly) cooler weather, and of course fall decor. Gotta love it! I also love this time of year because of the delicious summer vegetables available at Farmer’s Markets and in the grocery stores. Completely perfect tomatoes + summer

Two Healthy Sides: Cauliflower Rice 2.0 + Cauliflower Mash

Cauliflower Mash – Comin’ At Ya! BUT – a little about life lately before I dive into that yummy situation up there… Now that Harvey has left the building, we’re enjoying some pretty fantastic weather down here in Houston. It’s actually feeling like fall around here: cool breeze, temps in the high 70’s in the

Spicy Poblano Burgers + Pickled Red Onions + Chipotle Cream

These. Burgers. Will. Blow. Your. Mind. First off… I mean how friggin’ cute can a burger get I ask you? One reason they’re one of my faves is because you can do basically everything minus the grilling ahead of time. The red onions can be made up to a week ahead [and go great with

Lemon-Parmesan Roasted Broccoli + A Trip to the Pool

We’ve been a little obsessed with this side lately for a few reasons: it’s healthy, it’s easy, it’s yummy, and Corey will actually eat it. He’s on an I-hate-everything-green-unless-you-put-ketchup-on-it phase. It’s fun. Really. I don’t miss my non-picky eater at all… Despite his being a picky {at least when it comes to green things} eater,

Port Aransas with the Family + Avocado and Tomato Salad

Our travels continued this past week with an absolutely beautiful, fun-filled, family-oriented trip to Port Aransas. We stayed in the most magnificent house that allowed all of us to have not only our own rooms, but our own bathrooms as well! That’s saying a lot seeing as there was a total of 13 of us

Turkey Stuffed Bell Peppers

You’ve gotta love the incredibly versatile little bell pepper. He sure is a handy guy in the kitchen. You can stuff him with just about any kind of flavor and he just compliments it so well. My sister-in-law gave me this recipe a while back, and we’ve both tweaked it in our own ways since

Roasted Chicken with Goat Cheese + Lemon

This is a SUPER easy and healthy weeknight fave of ours. I saw this on a blog I follow and love [Designer Bags + Dirty Diapers], and it’s become a major staple in our house. I crave this one now, and I don’t feel one bit bad about it! It’s less than 250 calories for a

Sweet and Spicy Green Bean and Turkey Stir Fry

Sweet and Spicy Green Bean and Turkey Stir Fry

My best friend gave me this recipe a while back, and it’s become a definite repeat in our house. It’s super light and healthy, and it packs a TON of flavor. That’s one of the great things about Asian cooking – you can have a lot of flavor without a ton of calories. If the

Tex-Mex Stuffed Peppers

I have an equation for you: easy + delicious + healthy (+ cheap). I’m not so great with math, but I do know those things added together equals a happy Lilly. I may have mentioned once or twice that I love the show, The Chew. Clinton Kelly made something similar to these a while back,

PW’s Hearty White Chili

If you’ve never heard of the Pioneer Woman, let me sum her up for you in two words: Bad Ass. I’m sure you’ve at least heard of her though. You’d be doing yourself a favor to read her blog, too. She’s got some pretty great poetry skills that will bring a chuckle or a tear
