Skillet Bacon Cheddar Beef Macaroni

I made this Skillet Bacon Cheddar Beef Macaroni as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars, but all opinions are my own. #CampbellsSauces Yesterday was a busy day for me, and Nate had a long day at work so I wanted him to be able to come home to a hot meal, and I wanted it […]


Philly Cheesesteak Pizza

**I created this delicious Philly Cheesesteak Pizza as part of a sponsored post for SocialStars.  All opinions are my own. #NewTraDish   I’ve actually never had an official real philly cheesesteak sandwich.

Cheesy Beefy Macaroni

Cheesy Beefy Macaroni can be as cheesy or as beefy as you want it.   I love this recipe because it was easy to make, perfect to freeze, and yummy to eat.  This is one of the freezer meals I made for Aimee and Nate while I was there helping with their new baby- cheesy beefy […]


Bacon Cheddar Burgers

**This post is sponsored by Favado. All opinions are my own. Once the weather starts to warm up even a little bit we are pulling out our grill any sign of sunshine that we get. We love cooking outside because we know our food will be delicious but also because eating outside is so comfortable. […]

Easy Ground Beef Tacos

These easy ground beef tacos are one of my favorite meals from growing up. We had a few regular meals that we ate often, tacos, spaghetti, chicken enchiladas or barbecue chicken, to name just a few. All delicious. These tacos really are easy to make with only a few ingredients and they are delicious! In fact if […]

Mexican Stuffed Shells

These Mexican stuffed shells are a fun twist off of traditional Italian style stuffed shells, usually filled with a mixture of cheeses and topped with marinara sauce and again with mozzarella cheese. Instead these shells are filled with a ground beef and cream cheese mixture, cooked in a bath of enchilada sauce and salsa topped […]


Tavern Style Crock Pot Beef Roast

**I created my Tavern Style Crock Pot Beef Roast with Campbell’s Slow Cooker Sauce as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. All opinions are my own. #CampbellsSkilledSaucers Yesterday was the first real snow we got here in Orem. And it didn’t just sprinkle a little snow. It really snowed. And it really snowed some more. We got […]


Chile Colorado Burritos

These chile colorado burritos from Food Pusher or Chef in Training are very popular all over pinterest. I have made these burritos twice now, and still didn’t get the best pictures, but just trust me that they are delicious. These burritos are so easy to make, and only take a few ingredients thrown into your […]


Pumpkin Chili

Adding canned pumpkin to this chili gives it just a slightly different taste that makes it even more delicious. Otherwise you have the same typical chili ingredients that make this chili perfection; green peppers, onions, tomatoes, kidney beans, ground beef, chili powder etc. Chili is one of the best meals to eat in the fall […]


Mexican Pizza

This Mexican pizza is easy to make and tastes delicious. Its so easy because the “crust” is made from tortillas. The rest of the ingredients are just like normal taco ingredients, seasoned taco meat, refried beans, cheese, olives, tomatoes and lettuce.  The combination comes together perfectly. And the toasted crunchy tortillas make it even better […]


Beef Enchilada Soup

Soup season is coming. Fall and winter are the best soup season because its cold outside and I want to eat something warm. That feeling of coming inside from the cold and seeing a big pot of soup on the stove, or crock pot in this case. And then taking a swallow of the soup […]


Taco Salad in a Bag (Walking Tacos)

I heard of Walking Tacos a couple months ago, I think from a friend on Instragram (Be sure to follow us!). I was of course curious, but until recently didn’t look into them much further. What is a walking taco you ask? It’s pretty funny to call them that I think, because 1 there is […]

Shepherd’s Pie

Shepherd’s Pie is one of the most comforting homey meals I have ever eaten. Ground beef, vegetables, mashed potatoes and ooey gooey cheese. What’s more homey than meat and potatoes? This recipe is really easy too. You just cook the ground beef with a little seasonings. Boil and mash the potatoes. Pour everything in a […]


Middle-Eastern Flank Steak

My name is Nate, and I am Aimee’s husband. While Aimee is frequently baking up a storm in the kitchen I am outside grilling up a feast.  I absolutely love grilling and love the flavors you get from cooking with charcoal. Aimee recently gave me a rotisserie for my grill as a gift, and I […]
