Roast Turkey Breast with Honey Glaze and Roasted Veggies

Hey, I'm actually getting out ahead of the holiday with a holiday recipe! Normally, I don't get around to posting or trying these things way after the holiday, and once I find a recipe I'm happy with, instead of saving the recipe for a the lead-up to an appropriate holiday, I post it right away… Continue reading Roast Turkey Breast with Honey Glaze and Roasted Veggies

It's finally that day - that first day back at work! I've been both dreading it and looking forward to it the past couple weeks.

But curiosity, I've… Continue reading Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Fresh Caprese Sandwiches

I used to never watch TV. Up until my husband came along, I had a small TV, but it's sole purpose was to play movies in the background while I read or studied. It was a rare occasion that I'd actively pay attention to the screen. Then Scott came along, and since he's not just… Continue reading Fresh Caprese Sandwiches
