Lazy Enchiladas

This easy-peasy casserole is everyone’s new favorite in our household. The kids ate it without any complaints (minus the onions) and I was thrilled to only have a couple dishes to wash afterwards. Lazy enchiladas will become a new permanent meal on our menu and I’m pretty dang happy something so easy is such a […]

My Favorite Chili

I’ve never met a person that makes chili better than my dad… but, I feel like mine gets pretty darn close. I love making chili when it is slightly cool outside, and you have so many options! Chili cheeseburgers, chili dogs, Frito pies (hello high school confession stand), or on top of these amazing cornbread […]

Cheese-Stuffed Manicotti

What do you think of when you think of comfort food? For me it is either 1000% chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes or anything pasta and absolutely slathered in cheese. This cheese-stuffed manicotti is the epitome of my comfort food. I am a self-proclaimed carb queen and a cheese lover extraordinaire. Made with a […]

Instant Pot Mississippi Roast

You may or may not have heard of a Mississippi roast. There are a lot of different variations of this meal, but making a Mississippi roast in an Instant Pot versus a slow cooker just shaved about 6 hours off of your cooking time. Most roasts are typically a little lackluster in flavor, but this […]

Red Beef Enchiladas

Mexican food is one of those cuisines that I can eat every single day, any time of day. Being away from Texas, good Mexican food has become harder to come by, unfortunately. Here lately, it has been easier to just make my own Mexican food. This time, I chose to make my own enchilada sauce […]

Rigatoni and Meat Sauce

I have an extreme love for all things pasta. I’m a self-named carb queen. My kids also love anything that is pasta.  My oldest child is beyond picky and does not like to step out of his little bubble. So anything that my kids will eat, I enjoy.  While the meat sauce does take a […]

Spatchcock Chicken

Don’t ask me why this methodology of cooking a whole chicken is called spatchcock. I have no idea, it sounds weird, but it is kind of fun to say. And it is a really efficient way to cook a whole chicken to ensure the cooking process is even and the chicken is done all of […]

Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala

Indian food is one of the most underrated cuisines, in my opinion. The warm spices that are integrated throughout most Indian dishes are unlike any others. Bursting with flavors and spices, Indian is one of my favorites. When Aric was deployed to South Korea and the boys and I went to visit, I had some […]
