I'm all about making a recipe as quick and easy as it can get and when I can make it in one skillet, pot or pan - Booyah, it's a winner! I remember my mom making homemade spaghetti sauce and cooking it for HOURS and smelling it all day until my appetite was voracious and I could have inhaled the whole pot of spaghetti before it hit the plate. However, that's never been me. I've... Read more →

Even though I think of tuna salad as a summertime favorite, many of us have it year-round. Tuna salad always brings back memories of neighborhood get-togethers and my mom making a big batch of tuna salad to bring. She always put in a giant yellow/gold Tupperware bowl and was hard not to want to eat while she was making a batch. Flash forward to now, we make a small amount of tuna salad enough to...

This nugget of a recipe packs a lot of flavor in a simple dish. This was also a one pot meal since we didn't have to cook the chicken, onions, green peppers and green chili peppers separately. We love using Thrive's freeze-dried foods because of the convenience, time-savings, less clean up and less waste. We can use the amounts we need without having excess available that we need to plan into another meal that week.... Read more →

This recipe takes less than 20 minutes to toss together and is delicious whether you choose to serve it as a warm salad or cold. Serving this dish warm means you'll been eating that much quicker! This is a great salad to take to a summer event but does mean that it will need to spend at least an hour, if not more, in the refrigerator. If you're like me...this is HARD! Also, if you're...

I was at the store today in the produce section and walked over to the broccoli. 🥦 The broccoli florets crown portion was already kinda rubbery and the stalks were HUGE! You're paying per pound and the part you would toss in the garbage is most of that. Did you know that most “fresh” produce travels an average of 2,000 miles to get to your grocery store? It makes me wonder how old the broccoli... Read more →

Onions! Sometimes just seeing the word onions in a recipe made me want to cry. Even though we love onions, some days we would just skip adding onions to a meal because I didn't want to peel and chop them and know that my hands would smell like onions for the next few hours.
