Fiesta Breakfast Casserole

Lately co-workers are dropping like flies..well it comes in waves and we are in the middle of one. However, with each person leaving the company we celebrate in the best way we know how, potlucks. I have a love hate relationship with potlucks. I love eating but I hate the nature of pot lucks. First off, I hate the hodge podge of food. I don’t want lasagna with egg rolls, and hot dogs. Plus it mostly has gone from homemade food to pre-packaged and call me old fashion but I hate attending a potluck where everything is store bought. However, I realize … Continue reading Fiesta Breakfast Casserole

Chicken Teriyaki In The Crockpot

Lately the idea of having Chicken Teriyaki has appealed to me. I found a crockpot version of the meal and was so excited to try it. My hopes and expectations for this meal were high. However, this meal disappointed. Let’s backtrack a little. I received a new crockpot for Christmas with a timer. I  thought I could finally have dinner cooking while I was at work. After 4 hours it was supposed to kick from low to warm. However I think it sat on warm for too long . The meal overcooked and was burnt in the crockpot. I would … Continue reading Chicken Teriyaki In The Crockpot

Baked Potato Soup

Baked Potato Soup I’m such a baby but it’s been freezing here! Like literally freezing temps. When I moved to Arizona I signed up for warm weather not below freezing temperatures, blah! Anyways, with the cold weather I knew I needed soup. I saw a skinny baked potato soup recipe and was intrigued. The secret to this soup is puree cauliflower to give it more consistency. The positive: It was quick to make. The secret was heating the potatoes in the microwave to cook them. However, I had to also steam the cauliflower which added a tad bit more of time. … Continue reading Baked Potato Soup

Lemon Garlic Chicken In The Crockpot

Lemon Garlic Chicken Crock Pot Recipe So one of my Christmas presents was an upgraded crock-pot with a programmable timer on it. I feel like I now own the Mercedes of crock-pots.

White Chicken Enchiladas

White Chicken Enchiladas So I love enchiladas but I hate the red sauce. It creeps me out but the green sauce is totally fine by me. Weird I realize. I’ve been searching for a recipe for enchiladas that both the husband and I would enjoy. When I came across this version I knew I’d enjoy but wasn’t sure how Chad would. I figured if I loaded it with cheese it would be a hit. My theory only proved to be half correct. Chad thought it was okay at best where I really enjoyed the enchiladas. They were super easy to make … Continue reading White Chicken Enchiladas

Chicken Ranch Pasta

Chicken Ranch Pasta When I found this recipe I knew it had potential. I’m not a huge fan of the ranch scene but since Chad is and he’s picky I knew I could take one for the team and give this recipe a try. It’s super easy to make and I always enjoy making my own sauce which this recipe has you do. Don’t be fooled though it’s super easy it’s literally milk, ranch, butter and flour. The meal came out great and it wasn’t an overload of ranch which I especially appreciated. The only downside is that if you hate washing … Continue reading Chicken Ranch Pasta
