Chuck Roast BBQ {slow cooker}

Yum….bbq! I could have everything doused in barbecue sauce and be a happy camper. Since we are moving soon, I am trying to cook EVERYTHING that we have in the freezer. I found a vacuum-sealed chuck roast and knew what I had to do– cook it in the slow cooker and cover in it barbecue sauce. So I did, and… Continue reading

Chicken Enchilada Roll-ups {Secret Recipe Club}

So I have two exciting things to talk about today! Number one….drum roll please… My husband and I bought a house! We are so excited.

Cheeseburger Macaroni

We had a snow day last week. I love snow day– I guess I could be doing work in my pajamas, but why?!? So instead, I went outside and played in the snow, took a hot shower (and it burned because I was so cold), and made a great comfort meal– cheeseburger macaroni. The recipe is from Kevin and Amanda….

Pork Chop Casserole

Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

A couple weeks into the New Year. How are you doing with your resolutions? I’m staying fairly on track– gym this morning, and I am currently still full of energy.

I want to reach through the screen and eat the whole plate– even though I had Tuscan pork chops for dinner last night, I could definitely eat leftovers today I bought a ton of pork chops from Cosctco the other week, and I am really enjoying experimenting and trying new ways to… Continue reading

Chicken Parm Soup {slow cooker}

I crave pasta ALL the time. I adore the mix of noodles and sauce with melted cheese on top. But it’s still early 2015, so I need to eat just a little bit healthier….at least for now. It’s still early 2015 😉 While perusing Pinterest, I found a great recipe from Foxes Love Lemons for Chicken Parm Soup– in a slow… Continue reading

And I have been….well, I have been… Continue reading

Chicken, Asparagus, & Quinoa Bake

The casserole was a huge hit, and was actually pretty healthy too I used a recipe from Krafted Koch as my… Continue reading
