Carne Asada Nachos with Avocado Pico de Gallo

Carne Asada Nachos with Avocado Pico de Gallo

Who doesn’t love a good nacho?! I’m in love with these Carne Asada Nachos with Avocado Pico de Gallo. They remind me of this little drive through Mexican restaurant I used to live by. I would always pick up a large styrofoam container filled with tender shredded beef, and piled high with nacho toppings. It was a guilty pleasure of mine. The carne asada is actually so easy to make since it’s cooked right in your slow cooker. Just rub {Read More}

Chili Cheese Dog Bake

Chili Cheese Dog Bake

Say hello to dinner. This Chili Cheese Dog Bake is nothing short of amazing. Here’s the deal – it’s 7 simple ingredient, less than 30 minutes till it’s on your table, and WOW – it’s so delicious. All beef hot dogs are wrapped up with cheese in some Pillsbury pizza dough, then baked on top of a bed of chili. I dressed up the tops of these with a quick melted butter that’s seasoned to perfection. It’s everything you love {Read More}

Reuben Pizza Roll

Reuben Pizza Roll

Corned Beef and Cabbage are the main players in this Reuben Pizza Roll, which is a fun twist to the classic deli sandwich! Basically what happened is that I popped open a tube of Pillsbury pizza dough to start making myself a Reuben Pizza and then I decided that serving a regular old pizza wasn’t cool enough. Nope, eating a sandwich that has been converted to a pizza wasn’t all that I could do. Oh no, I started dreaming big {Read More}

Beef with Broccoli

Classic Beef with Broccoli

I’m on a bit of a mission these days. While I love coming up with the most unique and fun recipe creations I can think of, I also really enjoy classic dishes like Chocolate Chip Cookies, Sesame Chicken, and Broccoli Salad. (not necessarily in that order, but you get the idea). Classics. It’s what a lot of my recipes are based off of, but I realized I don’t actually have a lot of my favorite classics published on my site. So {Read More}

I’m absolutely head over heels in love with these Mini Beef and Potato Nugget Casseroles. These mini comfort food cups taste like little sloppy joe’s that are topped with cheesy tater tots. What’s not to love about that?! Oh yeah… how about the fact that there are just 7 simple ingredients in this tasty kid-approved meal? BONUS!!! I made this recipe for Pillsbury, but mostly for my 4 year old. She is my picky eater and she could not get {Read More}

Parmesan Crusted Steaks

Last year for Valentine’s Day my husband and I stayed home and I cooked us up one heck of a dinner. The main dish? Parmesan Crusted Steaks. Ribeye – to be exact. Although, and steak would work for this romantic entrée. Since my backyard is currently buried under 4 feet of snow, the thought of grilling these steaks is nonexistent. Instead I pan seared them in my cast iron skillet to create an ultra juicy steak. The parmesan crusted top {Read More}

Philly Cheese Steak Egg Rolls

Philly Cheese Steak Egg Rolls

Is it wrong of me to be extremely excited to have the kids going back to school today? Don’t get me wrong, I loved having them home for two weeks during Christmas break, but I’m ready to claim my house back. We have a small enough house as it is, and when everyone is home I feel like we are all on top of each other. I’m pretty sure my kids are ready to go back to school too. They {Read More}

Macaroni and cheese and I go way back. As with most of you, I grew up eating the boxed dinner.

Remember earlier this week when I showed you how to freeze an avocado? Well, I pulled my frozen avocado out of the freezer to whip up this quick and easy, creamy pasta dish. I absolutely love this festive pasta recipe. Are you going to celebrate Cinco de Mayo this Sunday?  You know I {Read More}
