Easy Cooked Carrots

My Mamaw made the best cooked carrots, I always requested them. She told me they were easy to make but I didn’t attempt to do them for a few years, I will say hers were still better but this recipe is how I do mine. Ingredients: Baby carrots (a few handfuls) 2 tbsp butter 1…

Tortilla Bowls

One of my favorite things to get at a Mexican restaurant is taco salads because it is a way to get all of the good stuff in a tortilla bowl! This is an easy way to make one at home What you need: Large burrito sized tortillas Olive oil, if you have it in a…

Philly Cheese Steak

One night I wanted to make steaks but I wanted to make something a little different.  My favorite thing to cook is something new, there are recipes I don’t mind making over and over but I find it way more fun to make something I haven’t before.  So I went to my refrigerator and realized…

Ramen…(Kinda Authentic)

So as you can tell I am a fan of international cuisine and I am a huge soup fan. I wanted to make an easy version of ramen because I love it! Now why I say it is kinda ramen is because it uses non-traditional ingredients but never the less it is in the true…

Potstickers

I learned with my dad how to make egg rolls years ago, and still, love to eat them. I, however, wanted to try something new so I tried potstickers.  They aren’t too different from one another, the main difference is they are mostly meat and you put that meat in your wrapper raw and cook…

Quick Tortilla Pizza

Spicy Chicken Sandwiches

Garlic Green Beans

It’s hard to come up with sides sometimes, when I was a kid when my parents asked me what veggie I wanted I always said peas, I liked them so much one of my nicknames my dad gave me was “pea girl.” So as an adult I try and mix it up a little. This…

Chicken and Green Pepper

As you all well know I like to make things from scratch because I love cooking and I love to improve on things. Every so often however I run across something premade that is good and makes my life easier. This is an example of one of those times. I am a big fan of…

Shredded Beef Tacos

Since we buy half a cow every year I have tons of beef in my freezer, one of the cuts I don’t use too often is chuck roast mainly because my husband isn’t a big fan of stews and roasts (crazy I know!!). So needless to say I needed to think of something that I…
