With all the healthy trends going on over social media this month, I was reminded of one of my favorite kitchen tools – my spiralizer! I bought it a few years ago and used it quite a bit at first, but like many little gadgets, […]

Shrimp Tortilla Soup

I love soup, especially when I am trying to eat healthfully. My favorite way to make wholesome soup is to pack it with tons of veggies, fresh and dried herbs and spices, and then puree everything into a thick and satisfying bowl of warm, cozy […]

Easy Roasted Chicken and Mushrooms

Easy Roasted Chicken and Mushrooms

Truth be told, I don’t really care for boneless, skinless chicken breast. I have always loved other foods exponentially more, so I’ve tended to ignore chicken completely. Some exceptions apply, like braised chicken thighs or crispy chicken thighs, of course, but dark meat is a […]

How to Meal Plan Efficiently and Effectively

How to Meal Plan Efficiently and Effectively

Let’s start with the most important question – “Why should you meal plan?” In a nut shell, by planning meals ahead of time you will eat better, save money, waste less food, and reduce the stress associated with mealtime. Wow! Meal planning sounds so awesome! So, now let’s discuss, “How should you meal plan?”

First and foremost, meal planning should not be confused with recreational reading. Reading food blogs or food magazines for fun is leisurely, meant for free time.

Deliciously Simple Vitamix Green Juice

So, I did something new recently. Something I should have done a long time ago! You see, I’ve been stuck in a paradigm. The Vitamix Smoothie paradigm. Whenever people talk about smoothies, and why they love their Vitamix for making smoothies, my mind would just […]


Crave + Able

Hello and Welcome to The Craveable Kitchen

Hello and Welcome to The Craveable Kitchen

Hi, and welcome to my new food blog!  I appreciate you stopping by and I can’t wait to start cooking for you and with you. What makes my kitchen so craveable? Well, that’s going to be the fun part, because cravings can be oh so unpredictable! Ultimately, I learned to cook because I loved to eat so much, and when I started to realize I could create the food I was craving right in my own home I became kinda hooked!

I always joke that I have a fat-tooth. You know, instead of a sweet-tooth? Instead of craving sugar and chocolate (although I crave that stuff, too), I have always craved salty, fatty, crunchy stuff.  No wonder my favorite food group is Chips and Dip! But as I am sure anyone can understand, my cravings change over the years and through the seasons. Sometimes I want fresh, wholesome foods instead of those fatty comfort dishes. And sometimes I choose to cook something simply because I crave the satisfaction of creating something with my own two hands, like bread or ravioli or braised short ribs! So you’ll see, this kitchen will be packed with all kinds of recipes. My hope is that as I share my craving-based recipes with you it will spark a craving in you, sending you straight into your kitchen to cook something craveable, too!

So pull up a chair. Introduce yourself in the comments, and tell me what kinds of food you crave!
