Zucchini Pasta with Goat Cheese

Warning: I always try to take beautiful pictures of my food when I'm making it because people eat with their eyes first. If food looks gross, you probably won't want to eat it. With that being said, I am so sorry for the last picture. I wanted to put this on a lovely dish and make it look so beautiful, but the baby started crying because he was hungry so I tossed it on a plate, snapped a picture, and went off to go feed the baby. But trust me, it was delicious!

Anyways.... Let's just go ahead and get started!

2 Zucchinis
8 Grape Tomatoes, cut in half
A handful of fresh Basil, chopped
2 oz Goat Cheese
Olive Oil

First make the Zucchini noodles! If you don't know how to do that, go {{HERE}} and read about it!

Now once your zucchini noodles are all prepped and ready to go, heat a drizzle of olive oil in a pan.

Toss in the Zucchini noodles and tomatoes and let those cook for about 3-4 minutes on medium heat.

Next add in the basil and mix that until the basil is wilted. Take of the heat and crumble the Goat Cheese on top. Give it a good stir and then serve!!
What a pitiful picture.... :( This definitely does not do it justice!
The goat cheese melts and coats the zucchini making an awesome creamy sauce! This was wonderful with the grilled chicken I made!

It feels so great to be back in the kitchen, I look forward to working on lot's of new recipes!

Dinner for Three

Gosh it's been too long! When I found out I was pregnant I was excited to come up with some crazy meals, but morning sickness pretty much killed that idea. Then once I was over the morning sickness I was out of town a lot and when I came back home I found out I had Gestational Diabetes. Ugh! That was the worst! You don't realize how many carbs a day you eat until you are only allowed 60 carbs a day! It was rough. I LOVE food. That's why I started this blog. So when I found out 75% of the food I love to eat was a "no no" I think I pretty much cried my eyes out. Seriously, I hadn't cried hardly at all my whole pregnancy, but when the diabetes thing hit there were multiple breakdowns in the kitchen. But let's move on from all those crappy times and onto what's going on now!

I would like to introduce Baby Jack!

Gosh, I just think he is so cute! So now it's not exactly Dinner for Two... But that's okay we'll keep the name.

After he was born I had my doctor's permission to eat carbs and sugar again so my husband went and got me my most favorite treat, a Boston Cream Donut! He actually got me 6....I ate them all.

Anyways now that the baby has been born, and he is actually a few months old now, I have taken up cooking again! Some nights I have to settle for a casserole or crockpot meal, just because that's what's easiest for now, but I have gotten a chance to be creative and I am excited to post new recipes!

So I promise, new recipes will be coming soon!! And if you're lucky, maybe I'll post some more pictures of the world's cutest baby! ;)
