Hi, guys! As promised, here’s that recipe for Pizza Cottage (Shepherd’s) Pie and, my gosh, it’s a good one. I mean, hello, both pizza and cottage pie in one dish? It’s basically comfort food heaven. And this recipe is super easy to make since it only requires a handful ingredients and comes together in no time at all. And, of course, it’s so darn tasty. Mal raved and raved (and raved) about this dish, which is especially…

Hey, hey! It seems like you guys really enjoy my “slice of life” and “day in the life” posts, so I’m going to try to publish more of them on CNC. I like it when other bloggers share bits and pieces of their lives, so here’s a little look into my day yesterday! Quinn goes to daycare on Mondays, so it’s my “get sh*t done” day, which means I am running around like a chicken with…

Hi, friends! Happy Sunday to you! If you’re working on your meal plan for the week ahead, here’s another edition of What We Ate for Dinner. I hope it gives you some good ideas! SUNDAY: Chicken burgers + sweet potato fries + green beans Sunday’s dinner was totally from the freezer and it came together in no time at all. I cooked the burgers and fries in the oven together and steamed the green beans…

Hello, hello! My inbox was filling up with all sorts of reader questions, so I finally replied to a bunch of them earlier this week. I thought you guys might be interested in some of my responses, so I decided to write a round-up of them in a blog post. I hope you find them helpful! I’m a pretty new follower and I was wondering how you met Mal! I love hearing stories like this. We’re…

Hello! Good morning! Just some pics from the last couple of the days… Mal and I went out to lunch on Monday afternoon and we had such a nice time. He’s so fun. And, hey, we’ve had two dates in two months””not too shabby! We went to The Met Bar & Grill at Legacy Place. We had some errands to run there, so we incorporated lunch too. Wine with lunch? Yes, please! Mal and I shared…

Good morning! Let’s get right to it because I have a delicious and insanely simple recipe for you guys, and I think you will love it! Breakfast Yesterday started with a big bowl of pineapple-flavored Greek yogurt with sliced banana and homemade granola. Simple and delicious. Lunch I broke for lunch around noon and threw together my favorite salad ever: mixed greens with roasted sweet potatoes, goat cheese crumbles, walnuts, and balsamic vinaigrette. It’s the…

Hello, hello! I can’t believe it’s already Thursday. This week is flying by for me! I hope it’s flying by for you too! Breakfast I started my day with Greek yogurt mixed with Paleo “granola” and blueberries. I didn’t think anything other than a crapload of nut butter would fill me up and hold me over until lunch, but Greek yogurt seems to be doing the trick. After breakfast, I took Murphy outside for a…

THANK YOU for all of your wonderful breakfast ideas on my previous post! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it. Now I have tons of new breakfasts to try out. You guys are awesome. Thanks, again! After breakfast yesterday morning, I got my Sunday Monday Cook-up on. I usually do all of my prepping on Sunday for the upcoming week, but I was at the Wellness by the Water Retreat all day, so…

I woke up yesterday morning with the plan of having a lazy Sunday. I ate Eggnog Pancakes in my PJs and then lingered around the house drinking Marylou’s Milky Way iced coffee. Eventually, Mal and I motivated ourselves to take Murphy to the dog park for a “nature walk.” Lunch After the park, we came home and made lunch, which was toasted ham and cheese wraps. And some holiday M&Ms. I ate the handful below X…

Good morning! Happy Hump Day! Are you ready to tackle the day? I sure am! Murphy, however, went back to bed after he ate his breakfast. What a lazy bum. I actually had a rough night of sleep last night, so I woke up groggy and not super psyched to start the day. Working from home and making my own schedule, I could sleep the day away, but I almost always get up with my…

Happy Sunday, friends! I spent a crapload of money at the grocery store last week, so I really tried to keep our shopping list short and sweet by assessing and incorporating what we already had on-hand in our kitchen into our meals. If you’re interested, here’s a post where I explain my meal planning process. This week’s menu: Sunday: Spinach, Shrimp, and Avocado Salad Monday: Mediterranean Stuffed Peppers Tuesday: Traded-Up Shepherd’s Pie  Wednesday: Out to dinner…
