I think you'll love how this Shrimp Bisque recipe incorporates making a super quick stock with your shrimp shells (and supplementing it with a little beef stock) so you can get that delicious, bold flavor without having to work too hard.
I'm excited to share a little more about the Green Smoothie Challenge we've been trying out for the past few weeks. This is a free challenge put together by my friends Jadah and Jen.
This easy-to-make cold soup recipe is a twist on traditional gazpacho (which is made with tomatoes). We happen to love this version, and it is the perfect dish for a hot summer day. Cucumbers are still in season here in the Carolinas, and you certainly can’t beat using fresh local ingredients!
I have to say, I might be the minority here, but I don't like the Instant Pot! I honestly went into this with an open mind and have used it several times for all different types of recipes to really get a good feel for what it can do.
This recipe is super easy and somewhat of a deviation from the typical lemon-juice flavored seafood entree. Get ready to enjoy some unique flavors and impress your family without spending hours in the kitchen!

My entire family LOVES this new crispy pork recipe! The first time I made it my 11-year-old was at a friend's house so she didn't get to try it with us....
If you've never had (or heard of) Shrimp and Grits, it's one you've gotta try!
With the 4th of July just around the corner, I've got a brand new recipe for you that would be the perfect addition to your holiday barbecue! Coleslaw is obviously a staple this time of year, but how about switching it up with a Green Apple Cucumber version instead of typical cabbage?
You won’t believe how easy it is to make these tasty little popovers. I think my 6-year-old could practically do it by herself (if I helped her measure and handle the oven). The only thing that is remotely difficult about this recipe is that the milk and eggs have to be at room temperate in …
This is a great light dish for summer that comes together very quickly, especially with the use of frozen corn (instead of boiling fresh corn and cutting it off the cob). If you're looking for ways to reduce your overall consumption of meat, which is good for both your health and your wallet, this recipe for Tex-Mex Corn Fritters Over Black Bean Salad is…
This Steak Butter recipe is inspired by my first-ever job in the food world. I was 16, full of energy, and soooo excited to be working as a hostess at The Chop House in Knoxville, TN (where I grew up).
With a flavorful parsley pesto to top off this Easy Baked Fish, it will keep dinner far from boring or routine. It would be a fast and fabulous dinner any busy night of the week.
Recently the term “Baby Led Weaning” (BLW) was introduced to us here at 100 Days of Real Food, a term that, believe it or not, none of us had heard of before. Our small team collectively has 11 kids (4 of which are mine) and without a doubt, we are tuned into lots and lots of real food-related information. Yet none of us knew…
I used 3 tricks to make this Shortcut Chicken Pot Pie just as wholesome as the original but faster. Now my family can have it more often...score!
I'm so excited about this Bacon and Brussels Sprouts Pizza recipe! And that's because my family was freaking out with enjoyment when I made it last week.
Did you know that food intolerances affect approximately 10% of Americans, whereas food allergies are thought to affect 4% of teens and adults and 5% of children?
If you've got lots of potluck events coming up this month, then I've got the perfect solution for you. Make a big batch of these super yummy (and also impressive) savory Pesto Cream Cheese Turnovers, throw them in your freezer, and then pull out (and defrost) however many you need to take to each event!
I thought it would be fun to come up with some new variations of overnight oats since my older daughter LOVES them to eat them. Apple pie was her favorite!
This is the blue cheese dressing I like to serve with my Cobb Salad recipe.
Take advantage of fresh corn available in summer months and throw together this simple corn salad for a light dinner (or lunch) side item!
No pre-cooking? No chopping? You know you want to make this easy-peasy slow cooker green salsa chicken for your family tonight! (Double it for leftovers!)
I've got a new really simple dinner recipe for you, but first let me share what sparked this idea. I was recently at an agricultural event where the farmers were talking about how everyone always goes for the pork chops, and they hoped people would branch out.
If you're a fan of fall flavors, then you'll love these Whole-Grain Pumpkin-Spiced Waffles! And if you have a electric donut maker, this same batter works in there, too.
This Braised Asian Meatballs and Cabbage dinner is the epitome of quick. You can pull it together in just 15 or 20 minutes with only a handful of dirty dishes left for you when you're done.
If you’re looking to add one more dish to your Fourth of July spread then search no more! Pasta salad is the perfect addition to a summer gathering because it can easily be made in advance and will stay fresh for days. It is also fairly easy to find 100% whole-wheat pasta, which means this …
This Breadcrumb Roasted Chicken dish is fabulous right out of the oven, but it's also pretty tasty leftover on salad greens or over pasta with a cream sauce. The topping adds so much good flavor, not to mention it takes all of 30 seconds to mix it together and spread it on top.
I think this might be a dangerous new recipe to have on hand because these whole-wheat madeleines are so good and so easy! We shared some with a good friend, and she couldn't believe they'd been made with whole-wheat flour because they were so light and tasty.
I am really glad that I tried cooking a pumpkin! I tested out two different ways to make pumpkin puree, and I have results to share.
Making homemade pasta, such as this sweet potato ravioli, is a really fun kitchen project for me and my daughters, and the outcome TASTES REALLY GOOD. Homemade ravioli is one of my most favorite dishes of all time, and there's just no way to make it if you don't make the dough.
Last month we were lucky enough to celebrate my husband's cousin's 40th birthday with friends and family from afar, in Mexico. We not only had a blast but enjoyed lots of tasty food while we were there too, including Huevos Rancheros for breakfast every single morning!
Eggs for breakfast, eggs for dinner, eggs for lunch…we definitely eat our fair share of eggs around here. And how can you blame us when eggs can so easily be reinvented a hundred times over whether you’re frying, boiling, scrambling, baking or poaching them. So here’s yet another way to make eggs and if you …
I'm always on the lookout for solid protein sources. As a mom, I also value recipes that pack a nutritional punch and that my kids get excited about. This recipe for Breakfast Cookies checks all of those boxes and, bonus, it's super easy to make!
By using a new technique, I've discovered how to make the fluffiest and flakiest whole-wheat biscuits. My kids can't get enough!

This Walnut Crusted Salmon recipe tops the list as one of the easiest and fastest dinner dishes of all time! As I've said before, one of my favorite things about seafood is how fast it cooks, and the walnut crust in this recipe literally adds only minutes to the prep time.
