Garlic Butter Breadsticks

I’m in love with Italian food, I mean, I’m a certified #carbqueen after all. There are so many people that love Olive Garden, and while I’m not a fan of much, the salad and breadsticks are my jam. However, being like 5000 miles from the nearest all-you-can eat breadsticks, why not just make your own? […]

This Mexican rice is a perfect side dish for any Mexican dish. Whether you are making enchiladas, tacos, tostadas, or fajitas, this rice dish will round out of your meal! I love TONS of black pepper in this rice, but it can get a little spicy for the kiddos, so adjust your seasons based on […]

Enchilada Sauce

Though you can easily buy a can of enchilada sauce, why not try your hand at making your own? This sauce is DELICIOUS! Use to make some homemade enchiladas, juevos rancheros, or my recipe for Copycat Taco Bell Mexican Pizza. The sauce will keep in the fridge for up to a week and can also be […]

Pepperoni Pizza Pasta Salad

Making things to take to parties is kind of difficult when your mind immediately gravitates toward sweets. Every third Friday of the month, I attend a Bunco night with fellow Army spouses. It starts at 6 o’clock, which of course is dinnertime. So, I feel like it is appreciated when people bring/make savory and hearty […]
