Instant Pot Pork Carnitas

Instant Pot Pork Carnitas

We make pork carnitas in our house at least a couple of times every month. My boys love the shredded pork in quesadillas, in tacos, with eggs at breakfast, and my oldest has decided he now loves nachos. I have been following a recipe I got from Serious Eats faithfully and it’s been amazing every [...]

TJ’s Hidden Veggie Meatloaf (aka Meat Cake)

TJ’s Hidden Veggie Meatloaf (aka Meat Cake)

My mom’s meatloaf was a favorite meal of mine when I was a kid; slathered in ketchup and served with mashed or roasted potatoes. I’m sure she served a veggie with it, but I probably didn’t eat it because I hated pretty much ALL cooked vegetables when I was a kid. Little did I know [...]

Creamy Avocado Pesto Sauce

Creamy Avocado Pesto Sauce

This creamy avocado pesto sauce is perfect over chicken, fish or alone on pasta. It’s quick and easy to make in a blender. I love to serve it cold over pasta and grilled chicken for dinner on a warm night. Delicious and simple! It’s got a tiny bit of kick, but it’s not spicy. My [...]

Sausage-Stuffed Zucchini

Sausage-Stuffed Zucchini

My family loves zucchini, and when you, your husband and both kids will all devour a specific vegetable, you learn to get creative with it so you can use it often! Hence, the sausage-stuffed zucchini makes an appearance on our dining room table about once a month. I use large-ish slices of sausage and not [...]

Tamale Pie

Tamale Pie

This recipe was a staple in my home when I was growing up. It’s one that my mom made that could feed all six of us and occasionally have some leftovers for lunch the next day (and it tastes great as leftovers too!). It definitely qualifies as one of her go-to recipes to feed her [...]

Spinach Lasagna Rolls

Spinach Lasagna Rolls

I was on Pinterest (really, what would we do without it?!) looking for new recipes for my picky family to eat for dinner. I saw a friend had pinned a recipe for spinach lasagna roll ups. I was intrigued, because I’m always looking for ways to incorporate healthy choices, without “seeming” healthy. Sometimes, you just [...]

Chicken, White Bean & Corn Chili

Chicken, White Bean & Corn Chili

I have no idea where my brother got this recipe. He made it for our family one day a few years ago and paired it with some moist cornbread on a cold, rainy night. I have never really been a big fan of chili, but man— I was hooked. Mama Say What?! Mama Kathy S. [...]

Rainy Day Cheesy Tomato Soup

Rainy Day Cheesy Tomato Soup

The inspiration for this soup came from a little café called The Shaker Shed. After going there with my mama for lunch and trying their Tomato and Macaroni soup, I was blown away and wanted to re-create it for dinner the next night. I think I did a pretty good job! And yes, it was [...]

Pot Roast for Dinner

Pot Roast for Dinner

As a woman who grew up eating fast food pretty much all the time, I’m not too savvy about home cooked meals. Pot Roast for Dinner And I’ll admit, I enjoy restaurant food. It’s convenient and delicious, but it can get pricey. So I do try to cook when I can and when I look [...]

Chicken Pot Pies

Chicken Pot Pies

My husband and I both adore eating chicken pot pies. Actually, we enjoy pretty much any kind of meat-veggie-mix-topped-with-pie-crust concoction that’s out there. Even in the middle of summer, we’re happy to eat them. I have seen a lot of recipes for quick and simple pot pies and casseroles using refrigerator biscuits or Bisquik and [...]
