Spanish Rice

I love to make tacos, burritos, or nachos at least once a week. I like to plan out our grocery shopping list and always keep items in my pantry so I can whip up my favorite side to go along on my Mexican dinner nights. Up until about a year ago, I would make myContinue reading “Spanish Rice”

Pop Pulled Pork 🐷

Title sounds weird, right? But the dish is totally not weird and is super delicious. Have you made pulled pork in your slow cooker before? Or in your oven? I looked up a number of recipes and found one I really like, made by Pioneer Woman, of course! I love pulled pork sandwiches, especially homemadeContinue reading “Pop Pulled Pork 🐷”

Instant Pot Short Rib Pot Roast

I have never made short ribs before, I didn’t even know what they were until I saw a recipe for them in my Pioneer Woman cookbook. The dish looked savory in the pictures and I wanted to try something new, so I figured I might as well dive right in! I picked out the shortContinue reading “Instant Pot Short Rib Pot Roast”

Air Fried Chicken Schnitzel 🍗

We love fried foods, that crunch you get when biting into something that’s been deep fried. It makes me think of going to the fair and eating a deep fried Oreo or Twinkie, so tasty. I also think about fried chicken and schnitzel, delicious! But since deep frying isn’t the healthiest option for our dayContinue reading “Air Fried Chicken Schnitzel 🍗”

Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes

I’m on a slow cooker roll this week! It’s really nice to free-up space on your stovetop by using a slow cooker, and especially if you’re going to be making a large meal with multiple sides. On holidays like Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas, when sides like mashed potatoes are a staple, you need this recipe.Continue reading “Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes”

Pasta Makes Everything Better 🍝

I love pasta, all different noodles, and Italian food in general! My favorite sauce to make and eat is red sauce, my husband likes Alfredo, and our daughter doesn’t like any sauce (well, not yet!) She is 2 years old and prefers her spaghetti or any type of noodles with just mozzarella cheese sprinkled onContinue reading “Pasta Makes Everything Better 🍝”

Slow Cooker Mac & Cheese 🧀

Hot, cheesy, hearty slow cooker Mac & Cheese is something I have made over and over again. It’s definitely a crowd pleaser! I have made a larger version of this, but the smaller recipe I have below still feeds quite a bit. You need to cook the macaroni noodles prior to putting in the slowContinue reading “Slow Cooker Mac & Cheese 🧀”

Queso Fundido

First off, what the heck is Queso Fundido? It sounded good, especially when I heard about it from Pioneer Woman, but what is in it?? Lots of cheese, veggies and either ground beef, sausage or chorizo! It’s all layered up in a skillet and super delicious. Melted down yumminess! I found the original recipe forContinue reading “Queso Fundido”

Slow Cooker Pinto Beans

I love the smell of beans in our home cooking all day in our crockpot. The smell of onions and garlic just bring out the flavor, and you have to add a little bit of jalapeño for that spicy flavor. For my recipe, I remove the membrane and the seeds from the jalapeño so itContinue reading “Slow Cooker Pinto Beans”

Air Fryer Buffalo Chicken Legs

I love Buffalo sauce. That spiciness, tanginess, vinegary flavor, but not too hot. I’m not a fan of the super hot Buffalo sauce, more of a mild to medium gal. I like Buffalo Alfredo pasta, Buffalo chicken wraps, and of course, I like Buffalo chicken legs! I have a recipe for baking them up inContinue reading “Air Fryer Buffalo Chicken Legs”
