Walking Tacos

Walking Tacos

Before we start we need to have an understanding. Before you read this post, go ahead and just put away all those opinions and strongly held feelings you carry about processed food and healthy eating. This is party food. It’s delicious and easy, it will change your life. But not if you’re going to be…

Ten Min Choc Sauce

Ten Minute Chocolate Sauce

I’m trying to ignore my children right now. They are running around me in circles, dealing with their bi-polar tendencies to love each other one minute and determined to destroy each other the next. Right now a very spirited game of “pull Ike down the hallway in a laundry basket” is happening. In about .02…

Salsa

Salsa!

Whoa. Summer got busy folks. Like in the blink of an eye. Bam. Busy. My head is spinning but we are having so much darn fun! We have had lots of house guests, which is my favorite calling in life. I had a friend once tell me “my heart is so full every time every…

Asian Chicken Salad

Asian Chicken Salad

I promised you a salad. I know, you’ve been waiting on pins and needles. Salad is all you can think about. I’m making your mouth water right now, aren’t I? No? Not so much? You’d rather have chocolate? I get it, friend. Oh, I get it. Yesterday I ate chocolate and drank coffee as a…

Shredded Chicken

Fast & Easy Shredded Chicken

The last two weeks have been nuts, planning isn’t really my strong suit at the moment. I’m working on it. We are kind of flying by the seat of our pants for dinners, etc. The kids are eating cheese, strawberries, and pretzels every day for lunch. It’s working (mostly). So I found a handful of…

Vanilla Strawberry Peach Jam

Oven Roasted Vanilla Bean Strawberry Peach Jam {And a bonus recipe!}

Oh my goodness. What a day. 30 jars of jam in the fridge. Both my monkeys were high on something today so in between filling jars with piping hot jam I spent my day breaking up fights and putting them in time out. All. Day. Long. Somewhere in the jam making craziness, I got curious…

Iced Coffee

Homemade Iced Coffee {Cold Brew Method}

A couple things you should know about this post: The photography is really bad. I’m sorry, I really am. I photographed this in a hurry, the lighting is off, my eye is off. It’s all bad. But you didn’t come here to admire photography so I think we can agree that it’s ok for now….

Bacon Sweet Potato Hash

Bacon Sweet Potato Hash

If we’re being really honest here today, I logged onto my computer to post how I’ve been making cold brew and iced coffee (two different things folks). Then I found these pictures and realized I could help you with dinner (and my final coffee shots are lame so this gives me time to re-take them)….

Sopapillas

Homemade Sopapillas

I’m about to ruin any vow you might have made to stop eating fried foods. Not only to stop eating them, but now I’m going to show you how to make them yourselves. Without a fry daddy or any other sort of contraption, just your stove top and a pot, some oil, and delicious doughy…

French Bread Rolls

French Bread Rolls

I tried to ruin these rolls. They still turned out. Imagine that. That makes them officially worthy of posting. At first I thought I used too much flour and then I worried that I didn’t use enough. Then I accidentally deflated them right before baking. Oops. And yet here they are, I imagine they would…

French Dip Sandwiches

Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches

Uh…..I’m supposed to be writing something else right now. A piece about serving one another. Something I’m super passionate about. If you live within 20 miles of me, there’s a good chance I’ve made you something to eat at some point in time. Either because you had a baby, had surgery, had a crappy Tuesday,…
