Jamaican Jerk Chicken

Changing it up this week and starting out with a recipe for Jamaican Jerk Chicken that we made over the weekend. My best friend Patrick sent us the recipe mid-week last week and when Friday rolled around we collected all the ingredients and prepared it for our first meal of this week. As I mentioned […]

Easy recipes for garden peppers

Confession: I don’t have a green thumb. We have kind of a running schtick with both mine and Neil’s parents. They grow the food, we preserve and use the food. I just lack patience and commitment needed to have a successful garden. I do however love to dork out in the kitchen, and love trying […]

Healthier Casey’s Taco Pizza at Home

This is obviously a cheat recipe, but a healthier copycat Casey’s Taco Pizza is something we’ve been thinking about tackling for a while, and with all the CrossFit, yard, and house projects we had on tap for this weekend, we thought the timing was perfect. First, a little background. CrossFit Fringe sits right behind a […]

Healthy Stuffed Peppers

Happy Friday! Here is an healthy and easy stuffed peppers recipe to consider for next week when life gets busy again. Unfortunately, this is also another one of those meals that is just not all that congenial to take photos of. I guess I could have styled it and tried to shoot it during the […]

Slow Cooker Pork or Beef Pot Roast

First, I have to apologize. This is one of our most asked for recipes among our friends and I always assumed we had posted it, and just kept directing people to the blog to find it. Apparently we never did blog it. We talked about it, but I never put the recipe up. Slow Cooker […]

Sourdough Pizza Crust

Over the weekend we were forecasted to get a major winter snowstorm. They were talking 10+ inches of snow and super cold temperatures. The town was a frenzy of people trying to prepare to be trapped for days. But nothing happened. We got a little ice, it was indeed really cold, but nothing more than […]

Spicy Whole30 Chili

We are just into Week 3 of the Whole30 challenge at CrossFit Fringe, and we’ve really hit a good stride. Of course, I’ve completely failed in a few areas (mainly Greek yogurt and oatmeal), but Neil is a champion. Hasn’t cheated once. Not all that surprising of course, he has amazing willpower. Typically I do well at […]

Polar Vortex Survival Stir Fry

There is something especially cruel about record-breaking cold temperatures that makes ice and snow even more isolating. As if the early darkness each night weren’t enough! Winter is always fuzzy and cute during the holidays, but the moment it’s over, it seems to drag us unrelenting through January and February. I’m ready for a hint […]

Cheddar-topped Shepherd’s Pie

Happy Monday! Shepherd’s Pie is right next to Tator-tot Hotdish on my list of favorite winter eats. When you come down to it, they are pretty much the same thing, but hotdish still has my heart. Erica and I made this recipe a few weeks ago (I know, we are of course woefully behind on […]

Crock Pot Chicken Mole

As I mentioned yesterday, we are in the midst of a Crock Pot marathon of sorts. While the stove and oven still work, they aren’t optimal, so to ease the frustration and save time, we’ve opted to use the Crock Pot as much as possible until we can find a replacement. I stumbled on this […]
