Mexican Stuffed Shells

Just look at all that cheesy taco-y goodness in a jumbo pasta shell!. Mexican stuffed shells are going to be your favorite dish to make for Taco night! I was very tired today and really wanted to come home and take a nap. Instead, I ended up cooking and made three things. A frozen key lime pie, banana bread muffins, and this dish for Mexican stuffed shells. I am home alone this weekend and decided to make these Mexican stuffed shells since there was cheese on top and cream cheese in the … [Read more...]

Quinoa Lasagna

1uinoalasagna 019

One of my pet peeves when making lasagna is, that I NEVER have enough ingredients to fill a 9 X 13 in pan and that is what the recipe calls for. That always irritates me to know end. I decided to try an 8 X 11 baking dish this time and that worked way better. Now I am satisfied and can mark that down for future reference. :) If you haven't noticed yet, I've been making a lot of recipes with Quinoa recently. I had made some granola bars this past weekend and I never got to take a picture of … [Read more...]

Spicy Pop Pulled Pork

spicypoppork 002

You can never go wrong with one of Ree's recipes. Every recipe I've tried of her's, I just love. This one was so super simple and I threw everything into a slow cooker instead of a dutch oven. The pork roast cooked on high for 4-5 hours and it was ready. The meat was just falling apart when I shredded it and it was so tender. I served mine on some fresh sandwich buns that I got at Hornbacher's grocery store here in town. Tomorrow I want to try this meat inside some quesadilllas. If you're on … [Read more...]

Trisha Yearwood’s Chicken Tortilla Soup

Chicken Tortilla Soup

I'm not a country western fan, but this soup might change my mind. This is Trisha Yearwood's version of chicken tortilla soup. She had this on her show the weekend before Halloween and it looked really good, so I thought I'd give a try. All of her recipes that she makes looks really good, and she also sometimes will sing on her show. She has a really nice voice and she can cook. This recipe might be my new go to recipe for chicken tortilla soup. The recipe makes a TON, so if you're only … [Read more...]

Lasagna Skillet

  I have a new favorite recipe site. I've been pinning recipes like mad from food.com I think it's a sister site of foodnetwork.com, because I see it linked on the bottom of theirs. You should check it out.. Oh yah, and the greatest part of that website is that they have nutrition info on there too. SCORE! Lasagna skillet takes less than 30 minutes to make. It's a lot faster than making the layered lasagna. The noodles cook in the skillet with the water and marinara sauce. There's … [Read more...]

Kid Friendly Pasta

The Food Network has been having new shows of the Pioneer Woman lately. She is one of my new favs. Ina still is in first place though, but I just love to watch her cook and learn about her life and family. Much more interesting than mine is anyway. On Saturday's show she made this pasta. I wanted to make it right away since I had all the ingredients on hand. This pasta should be called Kid and Adult Friendly Pasta. You just don't have to be a kid to enjoy this one. It has 3 of my favorite … [Read more...]

There was nothing wrong with this recipe at all and I didn't change a thing to it. However, the cream cheese I added in had scallions in it, and I didn't … [Read more...]

Cheesy Enchilada Casserole

cheesyenchilada 004

I thought this casserole was way better than the Chicken Tamale Casserole I made about a week ago. I love the corn in this too and it's very cheesy, very cheesy indeed. This casserole almost reminded me of a Mexican lasagna and the beef mixture had black beans, corn, and salsa in it. You get one really big  and filling slice for only 8 points. That's not bad. I ordered a new ice pop mold from amazon  and should be getting it this week sometime. I also ordered a cook book called Paletas. Be on … [Read more...]
