Lettuce Wrapped Tacos


I love this picture. I can tell we are in Spring and Summer mode for dinners as we start to look for more vegetables and less meat in our meals. I went to the grocery store yesterday to pick up the lettuce and a pepper for dinner and everything looked so good. I was sticking…

Taco Stuffed Baked Potatoes


Yesterday was the start of “The Storm.” It really wasn’t too bad and I was shocked that they cancelled school last night for today. I thought for sure they would wait until morning to see what the weather was like. I love snow days and so happy we have one today. I am thinking lots…

Buffalo Shrimp Tostadas


When I first told my kids about this dish I got “the Face.” You know the scrunchy face your kids make when they think something sounds weird or yucky. They both said, “Buffalo sauce on shrimp? That will be disgusting.” They love Buffalo wings and Buffalo sauce and I guaranteed them they would like it,…

Sesame Garlic Beef Tacos


We are getting ready to head to Walt Disney World soon. This mother-daughter trip just doesn’t seem real. I know that we received this wonderful suitcase from American Tourister (#PackMoreFun) and Disney Social Media Moms Conference (#DisneySMMC) to start packing our bags, but still it seems surreal. From the pictures above you can see what…

Slow Cooker Korean Pork Tacos


Getting back into the “real” world after vacation has been tough.  The bitter cold and snow is just making things worse.  I don’t like being cold so I tend to hibernate unless I really have to go out.  I needed to pick up my son at school so I stopped at the grocery store for…

Chicken Fajita Stuffed Peppers


Mostly our weekends have been spent at Feises (Irish dance competitions) but now our son had his First Lego League competition this past weekend in Grand Rapids, MI.  We knew nothing about First Lego League.  We knew that he was a programmer but beyond that nothing.  We learned quite a bit this weekend.  I have…

Blackened Fish Tacos with Baja Slaw


Still looking for a quick, tasty dinner that you can have on the table in about 30 minutes?  This is perfect for those nights when you need to feed have dinner on the table quickly. Verdict: This was an over the top hit.  My children love Tilapia because it is a very mild fish and…

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Tacos: Cook Once, Eat Twice!


Using leftovers from the Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast I made on Tuesday I was able to have dinner on the table in 20 minutes last night!  The pork roast was delicious but letting the leftovers soak overnight in the extra sauce and then heating it up made it even tastier! The recipe for the…

Taco Hot Dogs


This was a fun meal that turned out much better than I thought it would.  A few weeks ago our local grocery store had a sale on all beef hot dogs.  So, of course I bought four packages (won’t be on sale again for 4-6 weeks!).  Then I had to think of ways to make…

Blackened Fish Tacos


This past weekend we attended an Irish Festival in Big Rapids, Michigan.  It was the first year of this festival and it was quite a bit of fun.  But we did not get back home until 1:15 am Saturday night.  It threw the rest of our weekend out of order and by last night I…

Oven Standup Tacos


So this has been on Pinterest for about a year now.  Fill your taco shells with meat and cheese and then put them in a 350 degree oven for about 3 minutes for the cheese to melt and the shells to freshen up.  I never bothered doing this as by the time the tacos are…
