Slow-Cooker Chipotle Barbacoa

Remember a few weeks ago when I was on Instagram trying to figure out how to make the barbacoa recipe from Chipotle in my slow cooker?      Trying to recreate the barbacoa recipe from @chipotlemexicangrill in a #crockpot. I can’t say for sure, but I’m almost positive that developing slow cooker recipes is my spiritual… Read more »

And since summer is so close I thought it would be fun to turn my favorite drink into my favorite dessert! Check out these sweet tea popsicles. They’re perfect for… Read more »

Southwestern Taco Meatloaf

I don’t understand people who don’t like meatloaf. I am a huge fan of any scenario where meat gets mixed up with other delicious ingredients and baked in a pan! It’s why I go out of my way to make things like cheeseburger meatloaf or balsamic bacon meatloaf and why I’m always on the lookout… Read more »

PB&J Parfaits

The last time I was in New York I ordered dessert after dinner. This is nothing new guys, I don’t feel like a dinner out is worth having unless it ends with dessert. What was new was the item on the menu PB&J Parfaits. Since I am a die-hard peanut butter absolutely loved this idea… Read more »

No-Crust Pizza Cups

No-Crust Pizza Cups, you say? Yes I do!  Since so many people are on a  low-carb diet (myself included) I thought this would make an awesome recipe for the site.

April Fools’ Day Cupcakes

It’s a proven fact that little kids find April Fools’ Day hilarious. OK, well, it’s a proven fact that my kids find April Fools’ Day hilarious. They love trying to try and trick us by waking us up to tell is it’s snowing outside (not a possibility in LA) or that they got kicked out… Read more »

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Tenders

About a month ago I went shopping for a new cookbook. I’ve got an arsenal of recipes that my family loves but I really wanted to branch out to some new stuff. I wasn’t even sure where to start that wasn’t a celebrity chef or a specific kind of diet so I literally just walked the… Read more »

Ham and Potato Soup

Last year I asked Jonathan to help me figure out this recipe for Slow Cooker Easter Ham just in time for Easter. And since we’ve figured out that recipe I think it’s only fair to show you what to do with your leftover ham.  I mean, obviously, ham sandwiches and ham and egg casseroles are… Read more »

Lemon Meringue Cheesecake

Originally I had put a real live cheesecake on our editorial calendar… I thought it would be a great recipe for spring. But the more I thought of it the more I realized that’s crazy. Crazy because making a cheesecake is a lot of work, work I don’t have time for and I assume if… Read more »
