4 Ingredient Slow Cooker Chorizo Queso Dip


Well, friends, the Vikings lost. While I’m not much of a follower of the NFL, that game was a major deal in our home. Mostly because we were excited to watch our hometown team while having an “appetizer dinner” on the couch….but nonetheless, my heart couldn’t help but break a little for those players. It was a good run, MN!

Our dinner consisted of the worlds largest charcuterie board put together by the kids complete with dips, fruits, meats, chocolate, nuts, the whole she-bang…and this queso dip. This little gem of a queso dip! Continue reading

Bacon Wrapped Asparagus + Goat Cheese Bundles

SONY DSCWell guys, we made it.  Happy spring!  Yay!  You know what this means, right?  Warmer days ahead, lots of grilling, playtime at the parks, more daylight, fresh produce starting to make it’s way, and….baby!  WHOA BABY!

Any ideas or explanations as to how this pregnancy could possibly be going this quickly are completely welcomed, friends, because I am mind-blown at the whole deal.  We are finally getting going on bedroom moving, bunking, storage room cleaning, baby gear inventory-ing…you know, all of that good stuff…we are in the home stretch!  Which seems a bit crazy, actually a lot crazy, because I swear I just shared the news yesterday, didn’t I?  My gosh we can’t wait to meet this little one…all four of us.   Continue reading

Slow Cooker Cranberry BBQ Meatballs

SONY DSCFriends, it’s all beginning!  Snow.  Elastic pants.  Food overload.  Family time.  The holidays….yay!

Are you all set for Thanksgiving?  Turkeys brining?  Recipes ready to rock and roll?  We will be hosting my in laws again this year so it will be cozy and quiet…looking forward to a wonderful day with lots of food.  When it comes to Thanksgiving dinner I’m a bit of a traditionalist….aside from throwing in a fun, new salad here and there I like to stick to the basics.  Classic roasted turkey.  Mashed potatoes and gravy.  Stuffing. Those are the basics….delicious, dependable, crowd pleasing basics.  And then…in my house, there is no such thing as a Thanksgiving meal without Ina’s Spinach Gratin-I die.  And a good old fashioned cranberry sauce-can never ever ever get enough.   Continue reading

Bacon + Butternut Flatbreads with Balsamic Drizzle

SONY DSCOh boy.  So I’ve got this pretty amazing girlfriend.  We are raising same-aged children together.  She’s genuine and so caring.  Our husbands totally click.  We both love to work out.  You know, all the good stuff…and it all just works so seamlessly.  But heres the kicker:  She, too, has a case of ADIDAF (All Day I Dream About Food-it’s a thing-I am living proof).  She’s a fabulous cook and she may be the only human I know who loves to eat ALMOST as much as I do 😉  Like, you know, the kind of friend who sends you snap shots of every course at the fantastic new restaurant she is eating at.  The kind of friend that introduces you to rare and ridiculously awesome candy that you have never heard of and you basically faint out of pure delight.  The kind of friend you are delighted to check out new restaurants with because you know she will appreciate all of it as much as you do.  She’s a winner.  In so many ways.

And you know what, when you are a food blogger these types of friends come in super handy.  Not only is she incredibly supportive of Nourished Peach, she makes a stellar sounding board.  For example, our convo last night via text: Continue reading

Baba Ghanouj | Eggplant Dip

SONY DSCWeekend warriors!  It’s Saturday!  What’s the good word?

We have a whole lot of nothing planned this weekend and I just couldn’t be more thrilled about it.  The weather here in MN is feeling a bit crisp and fall like-so as you can imagine, I intend on a cozy cup of coffee this morning with my husband who is [finally] back in town and a couple of kids running around in jammies until we decide what random Saturday adventure we would like to partake in.  Man, my kind of day.   Continue reading
