Eye of Round

How to Cook Eye of Round Roast

Happy Monday! Sorry there was no post last week. I kept sitting down to write one but then got distracted by life…and by life I mean watching Youtube. Anyway, to make up for my absence I thought I would share a recipe/ how-to. Quick Tip: When in the meat aisle, keep your eyes open for the…

Pulled Pork

Another Easy Pulled Pork Crockpot Recipe

I’m all about finding easy meals for dinner during the week. From the moment I wake up at 5am I’m typically moving until I get home from the gym at 7pm. Which gives me about an hour to cook and eat dinner. I made (aka threw together) this recipe last Sunday. I’ve posted pulled pork recipes…

Beef and Lentil Stew Recipe

Beef and Lentil Stew

Can you tell I’ve been on a stew kick recently? It’s totally because of the weather. This one I made on a whim two weeks ago. I purchased stew meat at the grocery store and so wasn’t in the mood for another crockpot recipe. So I opened my cupboard to see what I could throw…

Red Gold Tomatoes

Crockpot Black Bean and Pumpkin Chili

It’s recipe time! Although to be fair, this isn’t my recipe at all. Last week I got a surprise care package from Red Gold Tomatoes. They sent me six cans of their tomatoes, a cute apron and a cute wood spoon that says “Official Red Gold Blogger.” Not going to lie, I feel super special.…

Spinach Meatball Recipe

Happy Tuesday! And happy “Rachel is trying to get this blogging thing together and actually post a recipe!” This one I tried out weeks ago but just never got around to typing it up. So without further ado, let’s just get into it. Spinach Meatballs Inspired by Alton Brown   Ingredients: 1 lb ground beef (grass-fed…

Zucchini with Indian Spices

Zucchini with Indian Spices

I’ve been a big fan of Indian cooking for a while. Not only are the spices tasty, but it’s also pretty easy to keep the recipes gluten, dairy and soy free. This past Friday Jake reminded me that it’s been at least a month since I’ve made any sort of Indian dish. So when I…
