I’m so excited to share this recipe with you guys because it’s for sure a keeper! It’s super easy to make (just one pan) and only requires two main ingredients and some spices that you likely already have in your kitchen. The best part about this dish though is that it’s a much healthier version of the packaged Ramen Noodles that so many of us simultaneously love and hate. This recipe is made with nutritious broccoli slaw (broccoli, carrots, and red…

Hello! Here’s another crazy-easy and tasty recipe that we’ve made non-stop lately. It only requires three ingredients– ok, technically, four because you do not want to miss out on the guacamole– and comes together in no time at all. (You can also make this meal ahead of time and just reheat it, which is what we do for a super fast weeknight dinner.) This recipe combines one of my newest obsessions, Trader Joe’s jarred Cowboy Caviar, with ground beef, cauliflower…

Hi, guys! I made these chicken fajitas two different times last week and already once this week because they are so darn good. So. Darn. Good. And, even better, they are super simple to make– like dinner does not get easier than this. The recipe is also really versatile and can be eaten with tortillas, rice, or salad greens, so it’s never the same thing twice. We are obsessed. The recipe was actually inspired by the Oven Baked…

Heyyyy! Good morning! How’s it going? It’s time for another Photo Dump! I know you guys like these posts (I do too!), so here are some more random photos from my iPhone! Enjoy! Quinn reading at breakfast. He looks so concerned, doesn’t he? Quinn examined this piece of newspaper (with a furrowed brow) for a solid 5 minutes. It was adorable. The “Little Maniac” strikes again! Some days, I honestly can’t keep up with this kid. I clean…

Guys, I threw together this meal about 10 minutes and it turned out so well. Mal could not stop raving about it, and he told me that I needed to share it on CNC. It was THAT delicious. My recipe for Sweet & Sour Meatballs is just four ingredients and you cook it in the microwave. It doesn’t get easier than that! And the Trader Joe fans will especially love this recipe because you can find all…

This post is sponsored by Blue Apron. Hey, hey! Recently, I made two new dinner goals for our family: Listen to music and eat together. I know they might seem like small things, but they have really helped us slow down instead of rushing through dinner. I would always fly around the kitchen, trying to cook dinner as quickly as possible, so I never really enjoyed the experience. Now when I cook, I turn on some tunes, pour…

Hello, hello! A bunch of you guys said you were fans of my weekly grocery shopping and meal plans because you get ideas for your own dinners, so here’s a quick post about what we’re eating this week.

Hi, friends! I heard a rumor that you guys like quick and easy meal ideas, so here are four delicious ones that you might enjoy. I hope they inspire some tasty meals in your house! 1. Half of a baked sweet potato with chicken salad, steamed spinach, and buffalo sauce This meal requires a little Sunday prep, but once you’ve done your cooking for the week, you can throw this meal together in just a…

Hi, friends! Here’s that awesome Meatless Monday recipe that I mentioned in this morning’s post. It’s healthy, super easy to make, and only requires four ingredients! Risotto with Roasted Chickpeas, Mushrooms & Kale Ingredients: 1 box of Trader Joe’s Mushroom & Herb Risotto (or similar flavored risotto) 1 can (15 ounces) chickpeas*, drained and rinsed 8 ounces sliced mushrooms 1.25 cup frozen chopped kale (or spinach) extra virgin olive oil salt + pepper to taste…

Have I mentioned it’s too hot to cook? Yep, I have and it is. I’ve recently discovered just how amazing frozen veggies and the microwave are during a heat wave, and I’ve been whipping up all sorts of delicious meals using them. Frozen veggies + microwave = no need to turn on your oven and sweat to death. Another easy, no-cook ingredient is cheese wedges from The Laughing Cow. Just unwrap, mix, spread, or blend…

When I was eating (and thoroughly enjoying) the Mexican Hash Egg Bake that I made for dinner last night, I said to Mal: “We need to remember this recipe.” It was so delicious and easy to make, I wanted us to make a mental note of it for future reference. I actually take mental notes of all the really good meals we cook, but I somehow manage to forget them when it comes time to…
