Sheet Tray Pork Chops with Veggies

Hey guys! I hope everyone had a great holiday! The girls had a great day and we have been enjoying our lazy time out of school. Tonight I made these pork chops with some random veggies I needed to use up from the fridge (mushrooms, broccoli, and yellow potatoes, diced). It was super easy. I…

Sweet Chili Hoisin Chicken and Veggies

Evening guys! I made this yummy combo tonight for dinner. I added a side of yellow rice that I found hanging out in the pantry, but you could use white rice, brown rice, or even toss them with some noodles. You could make this vegetarian buy subbing tofu or tempeh instead of chicken. Sweet Chili…

Super Shortcut Lasagna

Happy Friday, guys! So I feel like I don’t really even need to write a recipe for this one. It is just basic assembly. Here is how it went down… I took these frozen meatballs and warmed them up in this sauce. Then I mashed them up to mimic ground beef. I didn’t add any…

Creamy Chicken Pasta with Peas

Another pasta? Guilty! I need one of those sweatshirts that says, “No Carb Left Behind!” Here is how this recipe went down… First, the pasta. I have never seen this pasta ever, but the package drew me to it. Such a fun shape! Cook in salted water 3 minutes less than the package says. Sauce-…

Easy Skillet Pasta

When my husband is on call (medical pilot), I don’t really plan dinner. There is really no point. Sure, the girls and I have to eat, but we will eat WHATEVER for dinner…cereal, eggs and toast, leftovers, pizza, fish sticks, corn dogs, buttered pasta, chips and dip etc. When it is a surprise he is…

Mongolian Beef and Broccoli

Evening guys! My husband saw a recipe like this on You Tube and wanted me to make it for dinner. I added some broccoli to the recipe and topped it on some sticky sushi rice. Delicious!

Tofu, Black Beans, and Veggie Quesadillas

Say what you want about tofu, but to me, it is a blank slate of perfect protein. You can complain about it all you want, but you have to know how to handle it. In this preparation,  I added all the flavoring of chorizo with none of the sausage. I think I made one of…
