• Grilled Summer Veggies

    I am still all in on the summer veggies that are everywhere right now and so to celebrate them I heated up to grill to let them shine. It is still summer  Y’all I know I am so ready for cooler weather (& pumpkin spice everything) but one of the best summer things happening right now are the veggies.  There are some amazing veggies happening at the farmer’s markets and grocery stores. The zucchini is amazing, the squash is just so good, then onions are the perfect sweetness, broccolini, asparagus everywhere & the corn… y’all THE CORN!  PS… more corn recipes coming, I cannot get enough. Summer Lovin & Everything…

  • Honey Balsamic Sprouts – a perfect side

    Balsamic + Honey + Sprouts have NEVER been better… and trust me I KNOW! Surprisingly Simple Sprouts It is no surprise that I am a big fan of brussels sprouts, but these sprouts in particular are a favorite.  Even better, they are really simple to make. First you start with simply roasting them with a little olive oil and seasoning.  Then as soon as they are cooked you drizzle them with a balsamic reduction and honey… and voila, they are DONE!  I told you super simple. A little honey sweet… just a little I know sometimes when you use honey as a drizzle it can be over powering, but not…

  • Mexican Street Corn

    The Holiday weekend is almost here and I am busy thinking about all the yummies I am going to fix.  One dish I know for sure is this Mexican Street Corn Salad.  It is a perfect side for this Holiday weekend. It is so much more than corn Ok, obviously corn is a HUGE part of this dish but that is not all there is to it.  There is also lime, cheese, herbs, chili powder, sour cream…and a few more things.   Let me tell you it all comes together to create a delicious corn salad, that you can serve warm or chilled, that everyone is sure to LOVE!! It…

  • KETO Broccoli & Cauli Casserole

    This KETO Broccoli and Cauli Casserole is hands down my most favorite side I have made since on my KETO journey.  I am a HUGE fan of broccoli and I am becoming a big fan of cauliflower so bringing the 2 together is perfect! Load it Up One the first side dishes I made when I started my KETO path was my Loaded Cauliflower Casserole.  It is still one of my favorites and I make it often, but this Broccoli and Cauliflower Casserole is definately my new go to.   To amp it up a bit I used sour cream, ranch seasoning and mayo.  This combo adds a creaminess to…

  • Skillet Brussels Sprouts and Bacon

    Skillet Brussels Sprouts and Bacon are the perfect quick side for dinner tonight.  Literally can be ready in 20 minutes! KETO baby! I love this side not only because it is Brussels Sprouts (which I LOVE) but it is also KETO friendly, oh yeah and there is bacon.  I mean I am not sure it can get any better than sprouts, bacon, butter and super quick and easy. PS… The flavor is AMAZING! One pan and done I love when a dish is made all in one pan, and this time was all about the skillet.  First you fry up the cut up bacon and then quick sauté the sprouts…

  • Jalapeno & Cilantro Coleslaw

    Truth time…I have never been a fan of coleslaw.  I can actually count on one hand the number of times I have had coleslaw.  When my Godmother said she was going to make some I was not super excited to say the least.  Well… that all changed the minute I tasted it.  Jalapeño & Cilantro Coleslaw is now one of my most favorite summer sides!   It is all about the prep When SandyJones, my Godmother, said she was going to make coleslaw I just figured we would buy a bag of slaw and go from there…well I was WRONG.  She bought a head of cabbage and cut that bad boy…

  • KETO Cauliflower Risotto

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE risotto.  I love how decadent, rich and full of flavor it is.  Traditional risotto (like this recipe) is not KETO friendly but when you use cauliflower rice it becomes VERY KETO friendly.   One skillet is all you need The beauty of risotto is that it is typically made all on one pan.  This makes it a perfect side dish for a busy weeknight or lazy weekend.   This time around I went with a simple parmesan risotto but if you wanted to add in some mushrooms or bacon you would cook them in the skillet before you add in the cauliflower rice.  This way the…

  • Loaded Cauliflower Casserole

    Ok it is official I am a LOVER of Cauliflower.  I love this  Chicken and Cauliflower Casserole and the Mexican Cauliflower Rice  but this loaded casserole is my FAVORITE! Roasting is key There are a ton of loaded cauliflower casseroles on pinterest and they all sound amazing but for me cauliflower is at its best when it is roasted.  I love the little bits of charred cauliflower with the cheese and bacon in this casserole.  The extra step of roasting adds another layer of flavor this already delicious casserole.  Bacon, please A loaded casserole would not be loaded without the addition of bacon.  Right?  I mean the best loaded baked…

  • Keto Mexican Cauliflower Rice

    Mexican food is my go to.  I love chips and quest, enchiladas, fajitas, quesadillas, guacamole…all of it.  Since I have started my KETO journey it has been a priority of mine to find yummy alternatives to fill my Mexican cravings and this Cauliflower Rice is perfect. A new way to rice Everywhere you look cauliflower rice is being talked about.  People are using it in all sorts of recipes, some of which I cannot wait to try (so be on the look out).  My first time to use cauliflower rice was in this amazing casserole and now I am obsessed with the mexican style side.  It brings all the best…

  • Roasted Cauliflower Mash

    This Roasted Cauliflower Mash has quickly become one of my most favorite sides.  Growing up mashed potatoes were a staple on our table.  My mom loved them and my grandmother loved them so anytime we could have them we would.  Whether they were just the traditional recipe or something a little extra special like these Garlic Mashed Potatoes, it didn’t matter we loved them all and now I love this cauliflower version (trust me I cannot believe I just said that out loud). Roasting is key To really amp up the flavor in this Cauliflower Mash I roasted the cauliflower prior to mashing it.  Roasting it really helps to add…
