Baked Sweet Potato Empanadas
Do you ever feel like you're on an episode of Chopped?!?! I only had 3 fresh things in the house to use for dinner last night; I definitely didn't plan meals out this week but made due with what I had. Sweet Potato Empanada dough was born!
Flour-less Cherry Chocolate Chip Almond Butter Cookies
I entered my name on a Barney Butter contest on Instagram and I won! I got a fun package delivered to my home with a variety pack of their almond butter and I couldn't wait to try the Chocolate Almond Butter in a cookie recipe.
Crock Pot Buffalo Chicken Soup
Is it just me or when it's football season, I want Buffalo Chicken... EVERYTHING! This soup is a set and forget recipe. Sit back and let the crock pot do all the work. Serve over riced cauliflower or cooked rice to bulk it up!
Spicy Turkey Chili
This smoky and spicy chili is a STAPLE in our place when the weather turns cool. Double the recipe, freeze into individual portions, make for a weeknight meal... either way, enjoy when you are in a pinch for lunch or dinner!

Spicy Shrimp Pad See Ew
OK, so this recipe isn’t 100% traditional, but neither am I. Pad See Ew is one of my all time favorite recipes to order when I go out for Thai so when I have a chance to make at home, I elevate the spice and modify the recipe, as needed in order to use what I have at home, rather than making another trip to the store!
