Sheet pan meals are a busy mama’s best friend! I love how easy it is to whip up dinner all on ONE PAN (and I’m not gonna lie…I love how easy the clean up is too!) These fajitas are very versatile…use my veg combo below or roast your family’s favorite veggies with your go-to season […]

Forget Taco Tuesday. I’m all about Tostada Tuesday with these Pinto Bean and Potato Salsa Verde Tostadas! The secret sauce is the jarred Salsa Verde from Trader Joe’s (it’s the best!). With layers of guacamole and crunchy, shredded romaine, the whole fam will go crazy for these. Some habits die hard and my family comes
I’m obsessed with the Roasted Garlic Chipotle Salsa at Trader Joe’s. It’s smoky and garlicky in all the right ways. It’s one of my favorite snacks alongside limy tortilla chips. Yum! I created my own homemade version of TJ’s salsa with delicious results! Mix up the tomato blend for variety in flavor. Play with the
I’m fairly new to the world of pressure cooking. I’ve become a fast fan of my Breville Fast Slow Pro! As a working mama with three meals to get on the table every day, this handy dandy appliance takes prep and cook times down to under 15 minutes. It’s my secret weapon on busy evenings
These Black Bean and Potato Enchiladas are my favorite Mexican food! I love me some tacos, and tamale pie was a special treat as a kid, but these enchiladas are my comfort food. With both red and green sauces, they look especially festive for the holidays, but they’re tasty enough to eat all year long.
Latkes, (aka potato pancakes), are a traditional Hanukkah food fried in oil and topped with sour cream or applesauce. My family wants these crunchy treats all eight nights of the “Festival of Lights” so I challenge myself to get creative each year with lots of ways to eat them. Traditionally, I make them with Russets
These Butternut Squash Fajitas are a Fall twist on one of my family’s favorite meals. It’s a great way to introduce young tastebuds to the seasonal flavor of butternut squash in a sweet and savory way. I also love how these filling and crema for these butternut squash fajitas can be batch cooked ahead of
Fall is here and I am loving the varieties of squash that greet me at my local Trader Joe’s. Just seeing those unique shaped beauties puts me in a fall state of mind. I didn’t particularly like squash when I was kid. I mean, it’s scary looking, and the texture can be off-putting to picky
This homemade pico de gallo is super easy (and fun to make with the kids). I made a batch for Taco Tuesday last week and it went really fast…made me wish I had doubled the recipe. There’s really nothing to it, just a few ingredients chopped up and mixed together. It’s best eaten the same
My family loves Mexican food. Taco Tuesdays are a tradition every week in my household, and burritos and tacos make it on our breakfast and lunch menu at least once a week. Because I always cook more food than anyone can eat, I typically have leftover taco filling from Tuesday night that I eat the rest of the week in vegan taco bowls or the breakfast burritos I mention above.
his chilaquile breakfast casserole is going to delight your family on New Year’s morning! Chilaquiles are a traditional Mexican dish. It is prepared by frying corn tortillas cut into triangles as the base of the recipe, and then topped with green or red salsa. The mixture is then simmered and topped with crema, queso fresco, onion, and avocado.
Would it surprise you to know that I eat an avocado just about every day? Chopped on top of a salad, sliced in a wrap, or mashed as guacamole, I crave avocado daily. It is a bit of a comfort food for me, and with all the “good fat” it contains, I try not to feel guilty about eating it! Today, I add a new way to eat my avos – stuffed! A stuffed avocado, you ask? Yes, it’s delicious. You will love it!
This tamale pie recipe takes me way back. I have been craving my mom’s old recipes, the ones she made when I was kid. My mom’s cooking was comfort and love when I was a girl, and still is even now at forty-one with kids of my own to love and comfort! I watched her, mesmerized as her hands got to work in the kitchen.
