Steak and Onion Tortillas


We have been having lots of chicken breast, ground beef, and pork lately because it was what was on sale last month. I VERY rarely pay over $2.50 to $3.00 a pound for meat. We prefer to spend our money on items other than food like saving for vacations at Disney or dance competitions for…

One Pan Mahi Mahi Fajitas


One pan meals? Yes! I hate doing dishes and the less dishes I have to wash the happier I am. Ask my kids about using 5 utensils for making a pan of soup. Drives me nuts! This is technically one bowl and one pan, but it works. This meal is simple and the flavor was…

Slow Cooker Chicken Tostadas


Last night was my son’s last cello recital for the school year. All the students did a great job. It was a short program so we were home by 8:00 pm. During the summer we eat even later than normal. The sun doesn’t set until about 9:30 pm so we tend to be out and…

Shrimp Quesadillas


The first day of school started off at a run, literally. My son slept through his alarm.  Thirty-five minutes of a loud beeping alarm, he slept through. Of course we also overslept until 6:30 am. Oops. He needs to be at the bus stop by 7:05. This is a kid who needs at least an…

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…

Fourth of July Week – Grilling and Salads


I decided rather suddenly to take last week off from blogging and our dinners.  We had company for the first part of the week and I was a bit fearful of feeding him some of my first attempt dishes so I decided to stick with the tried and true.  Then it was my birthday and…

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…

Pork Carnitas Tacos with Pickled Onions


Back from two evenings off of making dinner.  The conference I attended on Monday and Tuesday was fabulous.  I can’t wait to share more of it in the coming days. But, I still had to cook dinner last night.  When I explained my blog to people at the conference most asked me how I had…

Cheeseburger Quesadilla


I realized recently that my kids are getting spoiled by my cooking.  We went to a Renaissance Fair over the weekend and because my daughter was one of the “entertainers” we got a free lunch.  It was very simple meal and meant to feed a large group of people.  It was white bread sandwiches with…

Chicken Fajitas


  This was the meal that was supposed to be steak fajitas but because we devoured the entire steak the night before it was changed into chicken fajitas. I made the Easy Chicken Fajita recipe from FoodandWine.com Recipe: Easy Chicken Fajitas Ingredients 1 teaspoon pure chile powder 1 teaspoon kosher salt 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin…
