Ham and Asparagus Frittata

asparagus and ham fritatta 015

Frittata's are pretty awesome and so easy. No flipping, no scrambling, and no waiting until the egg yolk is set in the  middle and the whites are done. My favorite type of egg is over easy, but with a frittata all you do is add everything into a bowl, pour in a pan, and let the oven do the rest for you! Mix in whatever vegetables or protein you like. My favorites are chorizo, ham, bacon, cheese, and broccoli. Potatoes are also great, but will take a longer cooking time. To make this dairy ...

Simple Tomato Soup

simple tomato soup 015

Daylight Savings is tomorrow. That means it will be light out later on at nights now! Food bloggers LOVE that. Woohoo!   I was pretty floored by this tomato soup when I tried it. Got the recipe from Pinch of Yum's website. It literally BLEW my mind.  This soup starts off with sauteing some bacon and onions in a pot. The smell of bacon and onions cooking together is the best foodie smell EVER. Usually, I don't go back for seconds on soup, but with this soup I had too. Some kind of grilled c ...

One Pot Cheesy Chicken Taco Rice

one pot chicken rice 001

I chipped off a part of my tooth last night just chewing on some animal crackers. The part of the tooth that chipped off was decaying and the dentist had told me it needed a crown. Not anymore I guess! I just saved myself over $1,000 because I was just going to end up getting it pulled anyway. It is way in the back where my wisdom teeth were, and I don't think I'd end up missing it that much. Maybe one day I can get a replacement for it, but for now I can't really afford it. Have you ever had a ...

Oh joy, another salad. You're probably getting sick of seeing salads on just about every food blog  right now aren't you? Tis the season to start diets. Words like Healthy and Detox and smoothies are popping up everywhere now. I told myself that I had to stop eating crap. I've been eating a lot of that lately too. Crap like Multi-grain tortilla chips with flax seed and guacamole. I keep on telling myself those chips are healthy, because they contain flax seeds in them. Pepperoni Pizza ...

Spicy Huevos Rancheros

huevos rancheros 012

This was a nice change, rather than my usual hash brown, eggs, and bacon stacks. A crisp corn tortilla, sprayed and baked in the oven instead of frying. Black beans with cumin, and chili powder and then the whole shebang is topped off with a fried egg. Super yummy with some tomato, avocado, and cilantro on top. Ben didn't have the egg with it. Instead, he made tacos with beans, tomatoes and avocado. Men, I tell you. He didn't want to make another fried egg cause the other one was contaminated ...

Mexican Macaroni Salad

Mexican Macaroni Salad 001

  Mexican Macaroni Salad from Ree Drummond is going to be your next favorite pasta salad. This salad is packed full of black beans, tomatoes, corn, salsa, and cumin.  Add in whatever favorite Mexican toppings you like to this salad!     Did anyone follow the Next Food Network Star this season? I'm seriously ticked off about the winner this time. I never liked Lenny from the beginning, him and the Butcher Babe.  The first time I saw him, I thought, who is this annoying looking cowboy d ...

Weight Watcher’s Deep Dish Pizza Casserole

deep dish pizza casserole 036

Weight Watcher's Deep Dish Pizza Casserole comes together in under 30 minutes. The crust is store bought, so you don't have to wait for it to rise and kneed the dough, and it takes under 10 minutes to brown the ground beef.  Browning the ground beef is probably the hardest part. Prep all your ingredients while the ground beef is browning and you're pretty much done. Super easy and you can use whatever your favorite toppings are. I just added a couple slices of pepperoni to mine and garnished the ...
