Roasted Cheesy Zucchini

If I can add cheese to any side dish, I will! This makes your zucchini so tasty, and cooks up so fast in your oven. We use our toaster oven that has bake and broil settings on it so we can bake up stuff like this without heating up our whole house in the summertime.Continue reading “Roasted Cheesy Zucchini”

Sheet Pan Roasted Sausage & Veggies

Sheet pan dinners are a new thing for us, and this recipe made me a believer! For this recipe I used 3 Johnsonville Jalapeño Cheddar Sausage Links, it was a perfect serving size with veggies for 2 plus leftovers for me. For the veggies I used, a yellow onion, 2 jalapeño peppers (de-seeded), and anContinue reading “Sheet Pan Roasted Sausage & Veggies”

Roasted Garlic Mushrooms

I love trying new side dishes, especially savory ones 😋 I have sautéed mushrooms before but I wanted to try roasting them to see if they taste better. And they do!

Cheesy Roasted Asparagus

Since we started our lower carb (heading towards keto) diet, we’ve made some yummy recipes. I love side dishes with veggies so baking new sides has been fun!

Air Fried Pork Chops

I haven’t made pork chops in ages so we wanted to try a new recipe and air fry them! We used boneless pork chops so they cook a bit faster than bone-in, but you can use bone-in for this recipe if you’d like. Also, if you don’t have an air fryer you can use myContinue reading “Air Fried Pork Chops”

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 🌮”

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”
