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

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….

Beef-Stuffed Zucchini

Happy New Year! Hope you had an enjoyable holiday season. Austin and I have had the last week off, and it has been wonderful- yay for holidays falling in the middle of the week Austin has been hard at work on his thesis– maybe he’ll be done soon with his PhD (wishful thinking). And I have been….well, I have been… Continue reading

Breakfast Scramble

Austin has been cooking a lot recently- thank goodness. I am impossibly overwhelmed, and he has stepped up completely as I’ve been running around like a chicken with my head cut off. So this week, both recipes have been made by my talented cook of a husband. First up, breakfast scramble! He adapted this recipe from Taste of Home, and… Continue reading

Beef and Pepper Pasta

I love a one-pot meal. If you’ve noticed, I make many of these. My most recent one (yes- weeks ago when I wasn’t traveling for work), I made a great one-pot dish. It was inspired from a recipe I posted in February (Spicy Sausage Pasta). Same style of recipe but a very different flavor profile. It was a hit in… Continue reading

Hamburger Cups

Hello from Sunny Florida! I’m getting a bit back in the swing of things for posting on the blog. On the road, I eat a lot of good and then some not-so good meals…but when I’m home (for a couple days at a time), I don’t eat super well. Monday, I had a fruit leather for Tuesday. Tuesday, it was… Continue reading

BBQ Beef Brisket {Slow Cooker}

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for the Beef Checkoff. I received products to facilitate this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating. All opinions are 100% my own! Last Sunday was draft day, and it was a big day in our household. Draft day might be my hubby’s favorite day of… Continue reading

Taco Stromboli

  I came home tonight with every intention of making mexican pizza. But when I started layering all the goodies on top of the piiza dough, I knew it would be a pizza disaster if I cooked it as a pizza– pick up one slice, and we’re toast. By toast, I mean mexican pizza toppings EVERYWHERE. What was I to… Continue reading

Cajun Goulash

My freezer is stocked with ground beef. I feel like every time I open that door, a brick of frozen ground beef comes flying out at me. It could be because this happened twice YESTERDAY! As you know, I buy in bulk and often forget what I have waiting for me. Sometimes, I get stuck in a rut with ground… Continue reading

Mexican Potato Casserole

I’m on the healthy train again– well, healthier train. I’ve pulled out all my Weight Watchers cookbooks and decided that I’m going to cook adaptations of the recipes. I’m not going to worry if the recipe recommends fat-free of low-fat (and will completely ignore if the recipe says fat-free cheese because that is just gross!). I want to eat the… Continue reading
