Monster Mash

Now that winter is approaching, I’ll be eating more and being an active member of society less… So, what better time than now to revive A Simple Dish?  We tend to bounce between a couple of different “diets” for lack of a better term. We often come back to the Vertical Diet, created by body-builder… Continue reading Monster Mash


Simple. Fresh. Fast

If you like the sound of a simple, fresh and fast weeknight dinner meal and you like bell peppers then this one is for you! (Sorry mom, I know how you feel about bell peppers!)

4 Ingredient Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Peppers

I'm back, bitches! It's been almost TWO YEARS since I last shared a yummy, mostly healthy recipe here on the blog. I can't believe it! Some "life" stuff came up, and I forgot to renew my membership and someone else STOLE my domain name.  I could sweat it, and be upset but I think I… Continue reading 4 Ingredient Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Peppers


Chicken Taco Stuffed Peppers

Oh hey, how’s it going?  Remember me?  My first blog post since May.  Wow.  I can’t believe that time flew by so fast.   Sorry for such a long hiatus.  It’s been an interesting couple of months filled with really high highs, and very low lows. It has been a stressful time, but I am now… Continue reading Chicken Taco Stuffed Peppers



  Bravo, husband. Bravo.  Another fantastic suggestion that resulted in another delicious recipe.  He really is the brains behind this operation, you know. I’ve been making a lot of stir fry lately, as you know and the thing about stir fry is that it is meat and vegetables, mixed with rice.  Well, that’s a great… Continue reading Jambalaya/Gumbo


Taco Stuffed Peppers

I think that at some point, I should probably just go ahead and rename this blog Let’s Taco-bout it. For real. I don’t know where this obsession with everything taco flavored came from, but I am happy that it did.  My kitchen loves Mexican flavors and I just can’t stop.  Casseroles, tacos, enchiladas, STUFFED PEPPERS.… Continue reading Taco Stuffed Peppers


Southwest Steak Burrito Bowls + Weekly meal prep tip!

I’m going to let you in on a little secret.  Meal prepping is hard and time consuming. But, it doesn’t have to be! I’ve been meal prepping one day a week for TWO YEARS now, without skipping a beat. When I first started meal prepping, I knew NOTHING about cooking. I knew nothing about food… Continue reading Southwest Steak Burrito Bowls + Weekly meal prep tip!


Stuffed Pepper Casserole

Changing leaves, sweaters and boots, open window with a cool breeze, and soup on the stove, chili in the crockpot!  There is only one thing that I don’t love about Fall – that it is followed by Winter. Seriously, how cruel is that? This amazing time of year comes and goes way too fast, so… Continue reading Stuffed Pepper Casserole

Spicy Mexican Crockpot Chili

Have you seen the movie Krampus? We did, yesterday. Krampus is definitely not your typical Christmas movie, of course but was very entertaining. It had equal parts creativity, suspense and humor. It is probably too scary for the little ones; a couple of people even left the theatre. I didn’t think it was terribly scary… Continue reading Spicy Mexican Crockpot Chili
