Slow Cooker Carnitas 🌮

I definitely had some help prepping this dish! Our toddler wanted to help by stirring, pouring and supervising 😂 Something about mommy having all the fun up on the counters with food makes her want to “help.” It doesn’t always mean I get things done quickly but I appreciate her wanting to be a partContinue reading “Slow Cooker Carnitas 🌮”

Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Have you ever used your Instant Pot on the slow cook setting? It’s pretty awesome! It saves having to sauté in one skillet and then transfer everything to your slow cooker or crockpot.

Crockpot Pinto Beans & Mexican Brown Rice

Making pinto beans in my crockpot is so easy! Pretty much just dump everything in and let it slow cook all day. This time (and some other times too) I forgot to soak my beans overnight. I did a quick soak method on my stovetop and the beans still turned out great. So if you’reContinue reading “Crockpot Pinto Beans & Mexican Brown Rice”

Greek Steak Pitas 🥙

Greek food is so tasty, I had to make another recipe! Marinated our steaks overnight and the flavors were just amazing. While we cooked the steaks, I seasoned them even more.

Street Tacos & Spanish Rice

When we lived in SoCal, we could go to our local grocery stores and buy pre-marinated Carne Asada steaks. There would normally be steaks that are marinated in a citrus or ranchero flavored marinade. It was so easy to just buy them marinated and grill them up! But since we haven’t found this down hereContinue reading “Street Tacos & Spanish Rice”

Sausage Pasta Bake

There’s just something about Italian food that makes my tummy go, “I want seconds!” Pasta, garlic bread, red sauce, and cheese are my go-to’s. Our daughter loves pasta too, so much that she likes it plain with just a little mozzarella sprinkled on top. I hope one day she’ll appreciate red sauce and want someContinue reading “Sausage Pasta Bake”

White Cake : Box Mix Upgrade!

Making a cake from a box mix is easy! I love how simple it is to make something already pre-mixed, all you add is water, eggs and vegetable oil. To make it MORE yummy, you need to substitute a couple things, but don’t worry, it’s easy! To start off, we have a ton of almondContinue reading “White Cake : Box Mix Upgrade!”

Air Fryer Whole Chicken

This is like a rotisserie chicken, only better! We marinated our chicken for 24 hours before cooking it in our air fryer and it turned out so juicy. I also sprinkled more seasonings on the chicken prior to popping it in the air fryer and it gave the chicken a nice, crispy and flavorful skin.Continue reading “Air Fryer Whole Chicken”

Crockpot Chicken Tacos

I love making Mexican food, especially when I can just put everything in a slow cooker and let it cook and do its magic! For this recipe, I use a whole chicken.
