My first July Food of the Month: Bacon Green Beans
Like many picky eaters, green veggies have never truly appealed to me. Sure I learned to like lettuce and spinach when salads were the only thing I was willing to try, but that’s as far as I was willing to go. As for green beans, peas, brussel sprouts, asparagus, broccoli, you name it, I stayed far away from those! But it was hard not to notice the pattern of these kinds of greens showing up to my favorite foods at restaurants. Like peppers, I figured this was a sign that I should maybe/possibly/kinda/wanna focus on green beans because they’re almost always part of a meal. But I definitely need picky eater-friendly recipes to do so.
The Prep Ever have that moment when you’re cooking, getting in your groove and feeling like a Food Network star (don’t lie, I know you have pretended to have a cooking show too), when it hits you.

When picking out my meals to try … Continue reading Second June Food of the Month Attempt – Buffalo Chicken-Stuffed Peppers
One of the most common questions I get when eating with friends is "But I thought you liked [name food that I've eaten once in my life]? Why aren't you eating this?" Sometimes, picky eaters like me eat something in front of them just because they feel they have to, not because they actually like the food.

Sometimes my process goes right out the window because, well, I don’t know that I’m trying a new food. Though it doesn't happen often, it isn't unusual to be surprised by an unexpected ingredient, especially when eating at a restaurant. This happened (thankfully with success) during my first date with my now husband, Drew.
Over this past weekend Drew made everyone omelets. The core ingredients were eggs, bacon, and cheese (classic for kids and not too bad for me). That's when it hit me that peppers are ALWAYS an option on menus, so it was time for me to bite the bullet and add some peppers to the frying … Continue reading First June Food of the Month Attempt – Bacon, Cheese, and Pepper Omelet
Photo by Ju00c9SHOOTS on Pexels.com One food I've seen come up time and again in recipes, meal prep ideas, and menu options is bell peppers. I've had tiny, tiny bites of them in the past, but this month I'm going to be intentional about fitting it into weekly meals to keep trying it more and … Continue reading June Food of the Month – Peppers
I don’t like talking about my picky eating. And yet, here I am.
