“Courage is being scared to death and doing the right thing anyway.”

Chae Richardson

Reflection: Doing the right things can lead you through things you might frighten but, you are doing the right thing.

Example: Seniors that are going to college , some are scared to go to a far away college and still do it, but its for their own good, so they are doing the right thing.

Slow Cooker Chicken Carnitas Tacos

I’m a bit behind, this was dinner for Cinco de Mayo on Monday night.  The chicken was delicious and easy to make and I served it with Lime Cilantro Rice and black beans, yum!  The recipe comes from a blog called Closet Cooking and I would encourage you to go look at the pictures there because they are beautiful!  I struggle with my food pictures, I feel like I just don’t have the time to make them jaw dropping, oh well, someday maybe.

Cod Cheek Burritos with Tomato, Avocado and Mango Salsa

Cooking in Sens


For the last 3 days we’ve been craving spicy food with the chilies cooked in, on the side, or both.  Must be some sort of anemia, low blood pressure, Mexicanitis or something.


This salsa was the best medicine 🙂


For the burritos, I sliced the cod cheeks into bite sized pieces, marinated them with a little lime juice and olive oil, then seared them in a hot pan.  Magic!

Tomato, Avocado and Mango Salsa

2 tomatoes, seeded and diced

1/2 large mango, peeled and diced

1 avocado, peeled, seeded and diced

2 spring onions, white and green, chopped

1/4 cup cilantro, chopped

1 mild green chilli pepper, chopped

Juice from one lime

Salt to taste

Mix everything together and refrigerate until ready to use.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Styling My Everyday

Chocolate Chip Cookies

There is something that we can all make in our sleep—something that when guests are coming over, we can whip up in a jiffy and know that it will turn out perfectly every time. Chocolate chip cookies are my go-to, reliable, crowd-pleasing winner. I can make them with my eyes closed, have the recipe memorized (it’s super easy) and always have the ingredients in my pantry.

The great thing about this recipe is that the dough is so versatile. I like mine plain … yep, no chocolate chips, nothing. My siblings and I used to ask my mom to make us “chocolate chip cookies without chocolate chips” as none of us really liked chocolate (I know … go ahead and stone us). I still always make one (ok, two) out of the batch without chocolate—otherwise I end up murdering all the cookies by just eating around the chocolate chips.

Secret Spaghetti and Meatballs REVEALED

Styling My Everyday

Lazzaroli Pasta's Spaghetti and Meatballs I’m about to reveal a HUGE secret. Listen closely because you don’t want to miss this one.

The best pasta in Nashville is at Lazzaroli Pasta in Germantown. Ok, so maybe you already knew that but here’s something you might not … ugg maybe I shouldn’t tell you … ok here goes … if you ask and/or call ahead they have the most amazing meatballs you’ve ever eaten. 

We’ve tried meatballs at arguably the best Italian restaurant in New York, Locanda Verde, and they don’t even compare to Lazzaroli. I love love Nashville’s Rolf and Daughter’s (one of Bon Appetit’s Hottest New Restaurants in 2013) and while they were very good, I had to shrug and simply say, “They’re not as good as Lazzaroli’s.”

Best part? You make it all at home! I love to cook but some nights are just too busy to…

Summer Supper: Healthy Turkey Burgers

Styling My Everyday

It is HOT this week! With every day in the 90’s, summer doesn’t seem to be going anywhere, unfortunately. This girl is ready for fall!

Turkey Burgers on

One of my favorite things about summer, however, is grilling out and one of our very favorite things to make is turkey burgers. This recipe is simple and super healthy.  Pair it with sweet potato fries (baked, not fried, of course) and basil pesto corn on the cob (pesto recipe coming soon) and you’ve got a healthy summer supper fit for guests.

Lasagna Night

Styling My Everyday

Most nights we eat grilled chicken or fish with rice and vegetables. As the weather starts to get cooler though, I crave comfort food. Casseroles and one-pot dinners with layers of favor that warm the soul.

Nothing does that quite like lasagna. It’s the meal that everyone remembers their mom making growing up. It’s warm, comforting and, well … delizioso!

Lasagna Night!

This recipe is super simple. I really like to make a large batch and put it in several different disposable pans to freeze. They are great to take to family and friends for dinner (I took one to my grandmother today) and I love to always have one in the freezer for those nights I don’t feel like cooking.

1 pound Hot Breakfast Sausage
2 cloves Garlic, Minced

I’ll make you Banana Pancakes

Styling My Everyday

Waking up too early, Maybe we can sleep in
I’ll make you banana pancakes
Pretend like its the weekend now, And we can pretend it all the time
—Jack Johnson

Banana Pancakes on stylingmyeveryday.comNothing feels more like home and more like the weekend than pancakes. A big stack of pancakes with warm syrup, fresh fruit, a cup of coffee and some good company make for the perfect Saturday morning.

People tend to think of homemade pancakes as a special occasion breakfast—like for Christmas morning. This batter is great to make ahead of time to store in the refrigerator or go ahead and make the pancakes and freeze them—just pop them in the toaster to heat up when your ready to eat. There’s no reason not to have them every morning!

Banana Pancakes

AND who says they have to be in the morning? I love them for dinner and this Banana Pancakes recipe is my absolute favorite.

Banana Waffle French Toast with Coconut Whipped Cream

Styling My Everyday

Waffle French Toast

Sunday I woke up with a craving for waffles … or maybe French Toast. Mmmm … decisions, decisions? But wait, why do I have to decide? A girl can have it all, right?

So I got up and started fiddling in the kitchen and like any mad scientist made an enormous mess. Waffle batter spilling out the side of the waffle iron, eggs dripping on the counter, I should have taken a picture of what looked like a kitchen disaster.

Out of the smoke came this glorious breakfast concoction that combines the best qualities of waffles and French toast with an added hint of banana and coconut. Brilliant.

Banana Waffle French Toast

The key to this recipe is making the perfect waffle. One that it soft on the inside and perfectly crispy on the outside. I also mixed in a mashed banana for an extra layer of flavor. I could have stopped there but…
