What started as a fun project for the day of reorganizing the pantry and cleaning out the fridge turned into my own at-home version of Chopped. A few specialty ingredient and a dash of creativity and a new recipe is born! 


Garlic Roast Bird w/ Charred Lemon Chimi + Charred Onions

This dish may look fancy but I promise even the most novice home-cook could whip this up. All the ingredients are tossed onto one sheet pan and cooked on the Traeger for that wood-fired flavor. Let's also talk about the star of this dish, the chimichurri. I would eat a leather boot if it were covered in this stuff. No better way to get an added dose of freshness than with a sauce of fresh herbs and yummmmmy EVOO. 


Peppercorn Roast Chicken

I made this whole roast chicken the other night and juuuuuust as it finished cooking, we lost power due to a crazy wind storm. The timing was perfect! That power outage had us doing things we never do.. taking pictures with a FLASH and eating by candlelight only. We might not have been able to see but boyyyyy was this dinner delishhhh. A simple peppercorn roast chicken does the trick. Top it off with some chimichurri and serve it with rice and steamed broccoli.

If you don’t yet know the full story behind my love affair with my Ninja Foodi, here it is. I bought one last year in Madison, WI (on uber sale with 3 coupons!) so I could cook in my hotel room for Mat during the CrossFit Games. We had pulled pork tacos and juicy chicken thighs and all the things we love to eat at home, expect we were hundreds of miles away with daily turn-down service. WIN, WIN (WIN, WIN.. if you know what I mean 😉) I’m here now with the newest for @ninjakitchen Foodi, the DELUXE. It’s truly a one-pot-wonder. Only a handful of pantry ingredients and altogether 30 minutes to whip this dish up for the family. Enjoy some time cooking for the ones you love!

It’s a chill and rainy Monday here. On days like today I just want comfort food, something that warms you from the inside out! Not only is this what I’d call “slap-together” meal but it’ll warm your bones. I made this in a pressure cooker but you can easily make this in a slow cooker as well (low 6-8 hrs or high 4-5). Every cooker is a little different, you know yours best so use your judgement and enjoy!
