Creamy Chicken and Green Chile Casserole

Creamy Chicken and Green Chile Casserole inspired by an old family favorite enchilada recipe but made with whole food ingredients | www.vibrantlifearmywife.com #paleo #glutenfreeWhen I was a kid, my mom used to make these chicken enchiladas with a creamy green chile sauce. They were super delectable. In college, I made them for my boyfriend (now husband) and he went crazy for them. He could eat almost an entire pan of them by himself. He can’t eat that much anymore, but back in high school and college he was quite the garbage disposal. Continue reading

So I’m sitting in the LAX airport right now, AKA the worst airport in the world, waiting to board my flight home after spending the week in Southern California. I’ve got 8% battery on my laptop, I can’t find an outlet that actually works to charge it, and my plane starts boarding in about 20 minutes so I’m going to keep this short and sweet. I know, that’s so not like me 😉  Continue reading

As much as I love to cook, I don’t want to spend all day cooking. And think of all the dirty dishes that would create! That’s really how you’d be spending your whole day, not cooking but doing dishes. Continue reading

Turkey Pot Pie Soup

Use up that leftover turkey from Thanksgiving dinner with this delicious gluten free, dairy free, and paleo Turkey Pot Pie Soup | www.vibrantlifearmywife.com

It’s the day after Thanksgiving which means it’s time to decorate for Christmas! At least that’s what we do in our house. Before we got married my husband was a strict December 1st purist, meaning he wouldn’t do anything Christmassy until December 1st. But when I was growing up we always started decorating for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving. In fact, I remember waking up on Thanksgiving morning to my dad cranking up the Christmas tunes and my mom always set the table for Thanksgiving dinner with her Christmas dishes. So I suppose the Christmas festivities started on Thanksgiving day, but the tree trimming and hall decking didn’t start until the next day. Ya, we are big into Christmas in my family. Continue reading
