Spicy Vegan Beef Crumble with Cheesy Grits

This was a hodgepodge, I need to go to the grocery store meal that turned out wonderfully! For starters, I am a spice fanatic! I cannot eat food without it having some sort of “kick”. I keep hot peppers on hand so this all started around how can I eat my jalapeños (lol). I also […]

Sautéd Baby Kale

So I was at the Lidl grocery store one day shopping for veggies. I was in the salad section and that’s when I saw a package for baby kale. I had never seen baby kale before but I guess kale would have to grow through all the life stages to before adult kale…? Yea, so […]
