I love this version of carrot cake baked oatmeal. It is packed with nutrition from whole grain oats, plus fruits and veggies. It’s a little more work than a simple bowl of oatmeal, but it is 100% worth it. Great for a brunch or heated up throughout the week.Read More
After our apple picking adventure, we had more apples than we could reasonably snack on. My favorite way to cook apples is in some kind of delicious dessert. But since my husband's sweet tooth is not nearly as large as mine, it means that I would end up eating all of said delicious dessert. Enter the quest for savory.Read More
I've always been partial to apple crisp... Since I can't get enough of these flavors, I prefer to make myself an "everyday" version of desserts. Meaning, it wouldn't be the end of the world if I had it every day. Or, it's not indulgent enough to be a "once-a-year" treat. Save those versions for holidays and birthdays, in my opinion.Read More
I was sitting with a client recently who wants to reduce the amount of meals that she either eats out or relies on convenience items. Her barriers are that doesn't have kitchen skills, and is super busy. She doesn't want to waste her time, money, or food on a recipe that might not turn out well. She feels stuck. But then, a glimmer of hope: she just purchased a slow cooker. This, my friends, is the answer to her problems.Read More
When you think of sloppy joes, you might think of something akin to canned chili. And if you do, I'm sorry, because that's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about a tangy, slightly sweet and smokey, thick and hearty tomato-based creation that slowly stews on your stovetop for hours. It's the look and smell of homemade deliciousness.Read More
Once overshadowed by broccoli, cauliflower is now trending the foodie world - some even call it the new kale. A common belief is that darker green or darker pigmented produce contain more nutrients, but white veggies are rich in a different set of phytochemicals that are just as beneficial to your health.Read More

This recipe is a bit of a treat, not unlike the meatball sandwich from June. But it's super delicious, and well worth it.
I started by caramelizing some onions, and added some chopped mushrooms to it - onions and mushrooms are such an amazing combination. I added a touch of garlic powder and a splash of balsamic vinegar at the end.
Funny story, I tried to get some nice roast beef freshly cooked from the deli at Whole Foods. Apparently, whoever was in charge of the roast burnt it and they wouldn't have any more for a few days. I had a craving, so I had to persevere. Instead I picked up Applegate Roast Beef from the prepackaged aisle instead. It totally worked.
I also added some Yancey's Horseradish Cheddar to the mix, and put it all on a pretzel roll. These pretzel rolls are a great new find. In Texas, they are only available at Whole Foods, but you can also get them online. I highly recommend them. I think that the pretzel bites would be fantastic for Oktoberfest! For ease of sandwich stacking, I chose to scoop out some of the filling on my bread, but the husband did not.
Since my ingredients were cold, I used the toaster to heat it all up - meat and cheese on one side of the bread, and onions and mushrooms on the other. In the photo below, you'll notice that the meat is put on the bread "as is" - for round two I chopped up the beef and it was much easier to eat.
We enjoyed the sandwich with a nice side of fruit salad. Yum!
