Spaghetti squash with parmesan, garlic, and butter
My mom’s co-worker shared this recipe and it is beyond simple to make. I thought this side dish was delicious; the squash is very mild and you mostly taste the garlic and butter. Um, yum!

Super easy chicken and hominy soup
My cousin Andrea told me about a super easy soup she had found on Bon Appetit. Since I love homemade soup, it sounded good. When I lazily watched her making it a few weeks later, it sounded even better. Once I ate it, I knew I had to share it with you! I went … Continue reading
Apple chips – just three ingredients!
I got a recipe from my daughter’s school for apple chips. They were so simple, I decided to try them. Oh my goodness were they easy and delicious! They take a long time to cook because you’re essentially dehydrating the apples. However, the hands-on time is minimal. Ingredients 4-6 large apples 2 tbsp sugar 2 … Continue reading
