THE KITCHEN GADGET LOVERS GIFT GUIDE
Instant Pot mashed potatoes have been my jam lately. Actually, anything in the Instant Pot has been my jam for the last few months, but mashed potatoes…..complete swoonage!
I have been hoarding this Spanish Braised Chicken for a long time. Not because I didn’t want to share with you, you know I want to share ALL. THE. THINGS, but because it got lost in the shuffle of pictures and recipes I literally have everywhere!
This Chicken Pot Pie Spaghetti Squash Casserole might be the best thing I have ever made to date. Think Thanksgiving stuffing and chicken pie got together and made a little casserole child.
Have you guys hopped on the Instant Pot train yet? It took me a good couple of years to FINALLY give in and get one, and other than having absolutely no room in my tiny kitchen to store it, it is a great “appliance” to have. For the last few months over on my Instagram stories, I’ve documented my Instant Pot adventures. What has worked, what hasn’t (honest bomb….I still am working on perfecting veggies in there), correct timing; there really is a bit of a learning curve to it, but once you get the idea of it, it’s pretty easy!
Who loves breakfast? How about tacos? (You all should have your hands raised high) These breakfast tacos are the new breakfast burrito.
Whenever I do a Whole30 I scour the internet for some sort of tracker that is a little more “fun” than just looking at a calendar. But man, 30 day downloadable trackers are kind of hard to find. So I decided to make a couple of my own to share with anyone who is interested!
These are very simple, you can cross out or add little notes to the back of the sheet. I made a key for you to color in the day with how you feel during your Whole30. It’s nice to go back and see that on day 7 you were kind of having a hard day, and then on day 17 you finally feel that tiger blood. Or maybe you get your “tiger blood” a lot sooner. Everyone is different!! Feel free to add your own little twist to it if you’d like.
You can print these out by clicking the options below!
Enjoy and happy Whole30 tracking!
I don’t know about you, but there is only so much chicken apple sausage I can eat. It’s good, don’t get me wrong, but just like how people can get tired of eggs, I get tired of chicken and apple sausage. Hashtag majorly. And all the “fun” flavors at the store either have a crap ton of sugar in it or are so.dang.expensive. I mean $8.99 for a 4 pack of sausage stuffed with pineapple. Yah, umm no thanks, I’ll just do it myself and get twice as many!! Plus I know exactly whats going into them!
Raise your hand if you are a fan of pickled jalapenos! If you could see me right now I’m raising both of my hands because I love anything pickled, especially jalapenos. However, this used to not be the case….I couldn’t even fathom the thought of a pickled jalapeno anywhere near my mouth. But then one Christmas (maybe 6 years ago or so) I received some pickled jalapenos as a gift! Something about a homemade gift made me want to try them out again and guess what; I LOVED THEM!
This Artichoke Pesto Leek Frittata has been giving us life lately. Mornings around this house can get a little crazy at times….I mean I’d be a big fat liar if I told you that we have it together every.single.day. Our mornings usually consist of looking for a missing shoe for a half hour and trying to get all the knots out of my daughters hair. Then try adding some good wholesome food into their little bodies before they spend all day at school. 7:30 am really can be killer sometimes. That’s why, when I meal prep, I usually make some sort of frittata. Why a frittata you ask? Because it’s SO simple to make (you really could add whatever you’d like to it) and it can chill in your fridge for about a week!
