Slow Cooker Salsa Verde – Sometimes you just need easy

I have been making this crock pot recipe for over a year at this point, and it never gets old. There are periods of time that I make this weekly and keep the ingredients on hand at all times! The cookbook that the base recipe originates from is Practically Paleo. I make it a littleContinue reading “Slow Cooker Salsa Verde – Sometimes you just need easy”

Cajun Chicken Alfredo

Food can get boring. I get tired of the same things over and over and this is coming form a gal that could do crockpot shredded chicken with raw veggies multiple nights a week. This recipe is from my college days. But it has stuck around for a reason. Making it this week was withContinue reading “Cajun Chicken Alfredo”

Quick Pumpkin Wheat Hamburger Buns

Okay… hang with me on this one. If you had told me a year ago that I would LOVE a hamburger bun that was pumpkin and whole wheat flour, I would have laughed. But it’s so good! You could do this with pumpkin or sweet potato. There is a sweet potato tortilla that is soContinue reading “Quick Pumpkin Wheat Hamburger Buns”

Healthy breakfast frittata

I am still on a roll with the inability to follow a recipe, but it’s working out. This is supposed to be a pressure cooker (instapot) recipe, but I don’t have a dish that fits in mine so I opted for throwing it in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes in a 8”x8” pan.Continue reading “Healthy breakfast frittata”

Healthy Eating – Taco Salad with Mexican Crema

This was going to be a taco salad… Until the store didn’t have romaine lettuce in any form. I am already the world’s worst at trying to remember the recipe and doing at least two things wrong. Tonight I forgot to add the tomatoes and green onions, but did throw a little queso fresco onContinue reading “Healthy Eating – Taco Salad with Mexican Crema”

Instapot Jerk Chicken with Jicama Slaw

Well, it was supposed to have jicama, but my grocery store was out. I subbed apples instead and it was just as good! This recipe was quick and forgiving as I threw a little extra cayenne on the slow accidently! My favorite part is how easy it was to follow and that it only gotContinue reading “Instapot Jerk Chicken with Jicama Slaw”

Quick and easy chocolate pumpkin muffins

When I was in high school, a mentor I look up to heavily had a group over weekly to learn and discuss topics. To this day, I can’t eat a chocolate pumpkin muffin without thinking of those times! These are so easy and quick to make, even my toddler can make them. Throw in aContinue reading “Quick and easy chocolate pumpkin muffins”

Instapot for the win! Barbacoa beef

Some days, you win and others you just take different! Today was a little bit of both. I told myself yesterday I would be in bed earlier and set goals and pull up my boot straps and knock things out. Today was a day of a million tasks and ending with a feeling that leftContinue reading “Instapot for the win! Barbacoa beef”

Meals for the week of Aug 26th

The plan for this week is easy! My mom heads home tomorrow and it’s going to be my husband, me (three days post knee surgery with my leg in a straight brace), and our two year old.  Our Hungry Harvest options included spaghetti squash this week.  Since those can get kinda pricy, I went ahead andContinue reading “Meals for the week of Aug 26th”
