Crunchy, Creamy Miso Slaw

I made this as part of one of my weekly Sunday meal preps. Like I’ve said before, a lot of what I make has become semi-homemade in nature, like using pre-shredded coleslaw mix. Chopping up cabbage, let alone 2…

Meat Soups

10 Minute Verde Chicken Soup

I’ve probably made this soup once a month for the last 3 months or so. It’s such a great ‘clean out the pantry’ kind of meal, and now I’ve got leftovers portioned out and hanging around in the freezer…


Broccoli, Cheddar, Rice Meatballs

I know. You’re like, “You’ve been gone for a year and all you have for me is this incredibly frumpy meatball recipe?” I feel you. But let me say, I’m in my (hopefully) last few weeks of being pregnant (It’s…
