Italian Sausage Pasta

Italian food is definitely one of my go-to’s for a simple and savory meal. I love making my pasta dishes with big chunky pasta more than using spaghetti noodles, something about the pasta flavor, and I love carbs 😂 I cooked up the meat and sauce in our Dutch oven on our stovetop, but youContinue reading “Italian Sausage Pasta”

Greek Meatballs 🇬🇷

First off, let me say these meatballs are the best. You can make these with ground sausage, beef, lamb, or turkey, but my favorite so far has been with sausage. The pics and recipe below are made with 1lb of ground sausage, but you can substitute with beef, lamb or turkey if you’re looking forContinue reading “Greek Meatballs 🇬🇷”

Mexican Style Pork Chops

We’ve been trying new recipes with boneless pork chops, and this has been the best so far! I chose boneless chops because they cook faster, but you can also use bone-in. You would just need to adjust the cooking time to a little bit longer. I cooked these up on our stove top in aContinue reading “Mexican Style Pork Chops”

Spicy Shrimp Pasta

It’s been a bit since I’ve posted a new recipe, so here we go! Last night I made Spicy Shrimp Pasta and we loved it. Super fast and easy recipe! I used frozen shrimp, thawed them and cooked them up. You can also use fresh shrimp, just one less step you have to do! It’sContinue reading “Spicy Shrimp Pasta”

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 🌮”

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. You can sauté your ground turkey and veggies in the instant pot and then add all the liquid ingredients to start slowContinue reading “Slow Cooker Turkey Chili”

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. If you like pitas, this is the recipe for you. I served up the steak pitas with tzatziki sauce, feta cheese, sliced cucumber, andContinue reading “Greek Steak Pitas 🥙”

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”
