Steamed Veggies for Two with a Greek Yogurt Tahini Sauce

You know how food blogs all have these elaborate gorgeous recipes, such as chili, stuffed pizza, or butternut squash ricotta ravioli? Well all of those are great, but let’s get real. We eat really well around here, but those kinds of food efforts don’t happen every night. Most nights we do something really simple, such as heating up some leftovers, and roasting or steaming some vegetables. So I wanted to share the kind of simple recipe that happens here most weeknights.

Sweet Potato Chili

We finally went skiing this weekend!

Skiing is about the only thing that makes winter bearable for me. I hate the cold, but I love the snow, love skiing, and love being out in fresh air for a whole day.

And when I come home after a long day of skiing, I love having a big bowl of hot and steamy chili. Is there anything better after being out in the cold all day?

Maple Glazed Pork Chops

Maple Glazed Pork Chops

A few weeks ago I made Cajun Pork Chops, which turned out to be one of the most delicious pork chop dishes I have ever had. It also ended up being one of the most popular recipes that I have posted, and no wonder!! It is super easy to make (less than 30 minutes!), super delicious and flavorful, and it is one of those one-pan wonders that makes you think ”how come we don’t make stuff like this all the time??”

Recently we also had the Glazed Pork Loin from Hello Fresh, which inspired me to make another quick and easy pork chops recipe – Maple Glazed Pork Chops.

Review of Bonefish Grill in Secaucus

Disclaimer: I was offered a gift card for the Bonefish Grill by Tilson PR in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Last Friday night we went out to Bonefish Grill in Secaucus with Aldo and his family. It was so nice to take out his mom and grandma to dinner. I am also glad we got a chance to try out the Secaucus Bonefish Grill location, which was just a quick drive from Aldo’s mom’s house in Bayonne.
