Honey Lime Skewers… A Tasty Dinner Fail

I saw these Honey Lime Skewers on Pinterest and I knew I had to make them. Ashley’s picture of them made my mouth water! My chicken did not end up looking as delicious as hers because I ran into a few issues. I spent so much time working on this recipe, I cut my chicken up, marinated my…

Healthy Slow Cooker Fajitas

If you have been following me you know that a little over a week ago my father in law had 2 heart attacks in one night and then had to have open heart surgery a day later. This was an eye-opening experience for all of us. Especially when it comes to how we take care…

Beef Tacos

I am a pretty simple girl, there’s no doubt about that. This dish is as simple as it gets. I grew up having beef tacos weekly so it’s not surprising that I cook beef tacos nearly every week as an adult. It’s one of the first things that I was taught to cook as a…

5 Ingredient Egg Bake

That’s right you can have a delicious egg breakfast with only 5 ingredients. What’s great is that these 5 ingredients are items I usually always have on hand. I had a play date arranged with one of my best friends and I wanted to have a little something for us to munch on when they arrived.…

Red Sauce Enchiladas

Years ago I threw together beef enchiladas and My husband and I loved them but I never made them again. I don’t know why because I have thought about them a lot since then. When I went grocery shopping last week I bought a big pack of tortillas not realizing that I had a 30…

Simple Chicken & Biscuit Dinner

I love chicken pot pie. I have perfected a semi homemade version of it. But even that version takes some effort because I make my own pie crust and I HATE making pie crust. So when I am craving something similar and want something that really hits the spot and meets my comfort food cravings I…

Creamy Spaghetti

Who doesn’t love spaghetti? Surely not me. Within the last year I have started making my spaghetti differently then how I had it growing up. It’s not because that way was bad, trust me it was delicious, it’s because I realized that I prefer my spaghetti a bit more creamy. (Translation…fattening) This recipe is as simple…

Homemade Classic White Frosting

I made cupcakes over the weekend for a birthday party and I feel the need to share the frosting recipe because it is so delicious. I have to say since taking cake decorating classes and getting a KitchenAid mixer I RARELY buy canned frosting. It was a bit of trial and error finding the perfect…

Chile Verde Burritos

Not sure what hit me when I made my meal plan for the week but I decided to make homemade Chile Verde. It was delicious but man, it wasn’t the quickest thing to whip up. I made my Chile Verde with goat stew meat because that is what I had on hand. It was really…

Almost Healthy Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

There was a period of time when I always had bananas getting over ripe on me because no one was eating them, but I just kept buying them. So I was making a lot of banana muffins and banana bread. I wanted something that was a little better for us then plain old banana muffins but…
