Baked Tacos

Evening kids! Taco night is upon us, so I thought I would change it up a bit. So, you know those crunchy taco shells you are supposed to bake in your toaster oven or oven before you all all your ingredients? Well, most of the time, some of them get burned or not at all…

One Pot Chicken, Mushrooms,and Potatoes

Hey guys! I made this dinner last night. I wanted to do a chicken and mushrooms of some sort. I thought of doing my creamy chicken and mushrooms, but I wanted something lighter. I had some beautiful potatoes I got at the farmer’s market, so I decided to make this dish. It was pretty delicious!…

Roasted Eggplant Dip

So yesterday I bought a beautiful eggplant at the farmer’s market. I was thinking of what I could do with it; parmesan, rollatini, pasta, lasagna, etc. I was researching online to see what else was out there. Apparently, there are tons of ways to prepare eggplant. I kept seeing tons of different recipes for dips….

Chicken and Veggie Alfredo Pasta

So remember last night when I made that awesome slow braised chili beef? Yeah, well, we actually ate it tonight! It was so good, but I knew the girls would not eat it. I didn’t even make them try it. It was too spicy and smoky for them, so I made them this back-up meal….

Summer Tomato Sandwich

But it was really not that hard! This was perfect and had the girls and me eating off the cutting board with forks….

Spicy Slow Cooked Beef Chili

So today at about 12:30, I started prepping this dinner. I browned the meat, made the sauce, and let it cook until my husband came home at 5. It only needed about 30 more minutes. Everyone was STARVING!!!! No one could wait! Hubby had a hockey game and he had to eat soon. The girls…

Summer Veggie Pasta Salad

Hey food friends! It has been a while since I have posted. I went on a small beach trip with my family, so no cooking or blogging went on. Just lots of coffee, seafood, beach drinks, and tons of memories with my family by the sea. I came back to my garden flourishing with tomatoes,…

Sautéed Kale with Egg and Tomato

Beautiful kale from the farmer’s market. Sautéed in a bit of olive oil with salt, pepper, and a couple of shakes, of red pepper flakes for spice. Top with a sunny side up egg and a fresh summer tomato! A delicious healthy vegetarian meal! I think this would be great with a whole wheat piece…
