Did I ever mention, that for Nate’s birthday he got this amazingly nice and huge charcoal grill from his parents? Well, its awesome. And we love grilling. Who doesn’t? Nate will pretty much only grill with charcoal because of that great charcoal taste that the food gets, but if you like grilling with gas, we won’t judge you. Summer […]
I love shrimp. It is one of my favorite foods. I enjoy it battered and fried with shrimp cocktail sauce, I find it delicious grilled with a little seasoning and as part of a pasta dish or salad or taco. I often will order a shrimp dish
Today I am so excited to introduce you to a girl I’ve know for a while. Elise and I actually went to JR HS together, imagine that. Elise has an awesome blog called Elise’s Pieces where she blogs about everything awesome. I especially love her hilarious Dear Boys post that she does every Tuesday. And […]
I’ve made shredded pork and chicken tacos a countless number of times. But last week I decided I wanted to switch it up a little. Shredded beef tacos. What a novel idea right? Just as simple as my crock pot chicken tacos. Just as delicious. Just beef.
So my thoughts for today are a little unrelated to the recipe, so if you don’t want to read them, just scroll down a little bit and you will receive a delicious Thai Chicken Pizza recipe. Otherwise, here you go.
For a while now I have been hearing about something called “Bountiful Baskets“. Basically you pay about 16.50 a week to get a variety of 6 different fruits, and 6 different vegetables. And its a surprise – so you have no idea what will be in your basket each week. You have to sign up […]
I saw this recipe on Our Best Bites and thought; hmmm…. that looks pretty good and then Friday afternoon, Craig and I went to Panera Bread. I had the Strawberry Poppy-seed Salad and thought I could eat this everyday and not be bored, it was so good. These two events hatched an idea and ta […]
About 3 years ago my friend Elise invited me to go with a group of her friends on a trip to California. I didn’t know if I should go because I had homework and work but decided I would go to the group planning meeting with her anyway. On May 19th 2009 I met Nate […]
I bought some of the ingredients for this recipe (spinach, ricotta, cream cheese, large shells) almost a month ago. However I kept not having time to make it since it requires cooking the chicken, cooking the pasta, and then baking it all together. So, finally this last Sunday I had time to make the meal, […]
The weather has been pretty amazing here in Utah for the past week and a half or so. Especially last weekend, to the beginning of this week. The weather was in the 80s. The end of the week brought slightly cooler temperatures, but much more spring like, with temps in the 60s. Last Monday I […]
I put a chicken mixture in the crockpot, and when I got home I decided to make taquitos out of it. This recipe was inspired by my own delicious pork taquitos, our best bites chicken taquitos and six sisters chicken bacon ranch taquitos. They were delicious, so I hope you enjoy.
I’ve attempted a few different Chinese dishes lately in the attempts to save us from ordering take out. So far, its working. This dish, inspired by Favorite Family Recipes Mongolian Beef (inspired by PF Chang’s) is a winner. So make it.
Monday night I made “pork roast with apples and onions” from Pioneer Woman for dinner. It was delicious but way more than Craig and I need to eat in 1 sitting. Which means leftover pork – so much that I even froze some for another day down the road but there was still plenty for […]
We officially couldn’t make it all month without going the store. So, if you want to count me as a failure you are more than welcome to. However, remember how I said our average monthly grocery bill averaged to be 320 and our monthly eating out spending averaged 110. Well, in March we spent 230 […]
Whenever we have friends or family over for dinner (although its not very often). I like to try out a new recipe. But the problem with trying a new recipe when other people are coming for dinner is that if it doesn’t turn out, its not only mine and Nate’s dinner that gets ruined, but […]
Although we have had a fairly mild winter this year, it seems like whenever we do get rain or snow (or normal winter weather) its on the weekends. So a couple of weeks ago on a nice and snowy day, Nate and I had to give talks in church (to see what we believe go […]
