  • 15 Minute Meals: Mustard & Thyme Pork Chops

    mustard and thyme pork chops

    At the Odle house, we eat pork chops once a week. I’ve had my tried and true method for over year, but recently switched it up. As soon as Ellie had this new version, she announced she liked these much better. I liked them too, but for different reasons. They taste great, but their true […]

  • 4 Ingredient Side: White Cheddar Roasted Cauliflower

    4 ingredient side cheddar cauliflower

    For years, I have hated cauliflower. In fact, I couldn’t stand the smell of it, but something happened. I discovered I do like it – coated in cheddar. This 4-ingredient side is a great example of how something healthy can be improved with just a touch of something decadent. Cauliflower is roasted at a high […]

  • 15 Minute Main Dish: Smoked Paprika Chicken Thighs

    15 minute main dish chicken thighs

    This recipe is a family favorite. Smoky and addictive, these thighs have Ellie eating chicken. CHICKEN. The protein she dreads just a little less than fish. (Keegan and I also love it.) No one goes hungry. And, this 15 minute main dish is fast and flavorful. Smoked paprika, garlic powder and onion powder are rubbed […]

  • 15 Minute Main Dish: Tilapia with Fresno Chili and Lime

    15 minute main dish tilapia with fresno chili and lime

    Last week, I shared a 15 minute meal plan builder perfect for hectic nights when you don’t even have time for takeout. Today, I’m talking about a favorite 15 minute main dish. To prepare it, tilapia is cooked in a non-stick skillet, alongside lime, butter and fresno chilis. Sautéed over a medium heat, the butter […]

  • 15 Minute Meals – Dinner Builder

    15 minute meals

    In my 20’s, meals could take hours to make, because there wasn’t a small person who lived with me that cared how quickly she was fed. But now, there is. She also comes with 1,000 activities, which means we need meals to happen quickly. So today, I’m spilling secrets on how I make dinner happen […]

  • 5 Ingredient Fresh Salsa

    five ingredient fresh salsa

    Hello, hello. Although summer feels over, it’s not. And, I have proof in the form of regular sweat whenever I step outside. So, although Ellie is back in school, my garden is in full production mode – which thankfully means regular batches of beautifully ripe Roma tomatoes. I’ve been using my stash to whip up […]

  • Lady-Like Egg Salad Toasts

    Feminine and very ladylike, these egg salad toasts would be perfect for Mother’s Day or a spring Brunch. We had ours this year at Easter. I had originally made half the amount shown here, but quickly doubled it on the spot, because we ate all of them and everyone (except for Ellie) wanted more. Although […]

  • Romesco Deviled Eggs

    romesco deviled eggs

    I have a history with romesco sauce. Smoky and complex, I love the flavor combinations of roasted red peppers, smoked paprika, garlic and vinegar. If you haven’t had it before, I can’t recommend it enough. It’s guaranteed to up your basic, weeknight chicken by a thousand percent. As Ellie would say, “for real life.” So, […]

  • Pear, Goat Cheese and Pistachio Crostini

    pear goat cheese crostini

    I made this pear, goat cheese and pistachio crostini for Thanksgiving this year, but according to an old friend, I served something like this for a book club many, many years ago. I’m so glad she reminded me about the combination, because it is delicious, and I had completely forgotten about it. (which sadly happens all […]
