Who is ready for a recipe that SCREAMS summer?! These Mexican stuffed zucchini boats are a real crowd pleaser! If you grow summer squash in your garden, this is the perfect dish to use up ALL THE SQUASH! We usually have squash coming out our ears and lets be honest, zoodling all of them for meals can get a bit boring. So instead make those suckers into “boats!”
I originally made these addictive little meatballs for a tailgating series for Whole30 back in the day and they are still one of our family favorites! We really like making them into “kabobs” cause lets be honest, who doesn’t love eating food from a stick. But maybe you are one of those people who are just not down for kabobs….thats okay, just simply omit the stick!! I love that these meatballs don’t have the typical flavors of a “regular” meatball that we are all so used to (I’m talking about you; marinara doused balls!) It’s definitely a fun way to change up your Asian game!
Hands down my father-in-law makes the best stuffed mushrooms I’ve ever had. I swear he must put crack in it or something because I can never have enough and I always want more! I kid, I kid……..there are no drugs in his mushrooms……..
It’s hard to recreate something that is already so delicious. There are some expectations that need to be met (especially by my husband) so I figured the best way to meet and exceed those expectations is to put bacon in it. Because bacon = crack.
There is a restaurant in the Santa Cruz area that has the BEST brussels sprouts I have ever put into my mouth. We go about twice a year and seriously guys….I think about it for like 3 weeks straight after eating them! Last time we were there I asked them what made their brussels so DREAMY and they said that they fry the parsley that goes on top. My mind was blown! Fried parsley; that is GENIUS!
Raise you hand if breakfast sausage is your “jam.” I love breakfast sausage, but a good, homemade breakfast sausage is hard to come by. The grocery store ones usually have a bascrillion ingredients (dude, why?!) and sugar. Lotsa suga!!!
I don’t know about you, but sometimes our “staple” chicken recipes just get boring. So when Kettle & Fire sent me their new chicken bone broth I was determined to find a new scrumptious and easy recipe that would become a new staple for us and this Chicken and Mushroom stew does just that!
I have a weakness…. and it’s for French Onion Soup. I will order it at any restaurant if it is on the menu. GUARANTEED. I usually order it minus the bread because something about wet, soggy bread makes me gag. #saynotothesog
My grandpa was a great cook. In fact a few of my recipes are inspired by his dishes he created. One thing though, that doesn’t ever stray is his Hoppin’ John recipe. We only make it once a year, for the New Year obviously lol. It is sooo good and one of the meals I always look forward to making for my family. And even though it has beans, which we usually don’t eat, it is one of our family traditions and traditions trump!!
You know what should be under everyone’s tree this year…..this pork tenderloin with pomegranate sauce. Okay, okay, that may be a little weird; “here’s a big piece of meat mom! Merry Christmas!” So perhaps you should just make it for Christmas dinner. You probably even have most of what this recipe calls for already at your house. If you don’t have any pork (or maybe you don’t eat pork) this is great on chicken and even salmon!
Eating healthy is really important (for obvious reasons lol) , but so is taking care of yourself. It’s easy for me to remember to brush my teeth, wash my hair, etc etc…..but for this little team of mine, not so much. I hate to admit it, but sometimes when we are so busy out and about doing after school activities, when we get home the kids get on their pj’s and hop right into bed….without brushing their teeth. Hashtag: GAG. Hashtag: also my fault. I would never forget to brush my own teeth cause I’ve been doing it for 30 something years and it is just a natural thing to do, but for my kids, that’s another story. It’s such a chore for them especially when they have better things to do, like play!!
