There’s an awesome little Mexican food restaurant near our neighborhood that is so good that I pretty much jump on the chance to eat there whenever possible. The only problem is that any sort of self control I have pretty much stays behind me when I walk in the door and I end up pigging out on chips and salsa and ordering an amazing but I’m sure not terribly healthy taco or chimichanga platter. Delicious, but then I end up feeling like I can barely walk back out the door. Does this happen to you guys too?
Quite possibly the most delicious thing to ever be eaten from a bowl! It’s amazing how a simple slow cooker chicken recipe can so easily turn into this. Juicy flavorful chicken, sweet caramelized peaches, crispy corn salsa with fresh tomatoes and zesty jalapeños. Top it all off with some creamy, salty goat cheese and that, […]
I’m rarely a fan of sandwiches, but these? I could eat them all day! My son actually declared it his new favorite meal. We were all hooked and actually didn’t even end up with any leftovers. Even though I probably made enough for at least 6 people. None of us could stop eating. And the […]

Hello, can someone please tell me where my lovely summer went? We just went and finished up middle school registration yesterday and will be headed to preschool back to school night in less than 2 weeks! I feel like it was only a couple days ago I was posting about our wonderful family vacation and that was […]
How many different ways can you make chicken? Apparently, a lot! Every time I think I’ve found my favorite I just end up finding yet another! I’ve had this vague idea of trying to make some sort of beer-can type chicken but one day when I was walking through the grocery store I saw a […]

What’s the perfect side to go along with just about any BBQ dish? Pasta salad, of course!! And with summer in full swing I’m gonna bet a lot of you all have all kinds of BBQ flavors going on! Of course, there’s probably about a billion different variations of pasta salad out there but I’m […]
Nachos for dinner and crazy flavor obsessions = my summer meal plan. This seems to be just fine with my family, as they have snarfed down every last bit! I guess when you tell a four year old she can have chips for dinner she’s totally going to be on board with that. Such a […]
