Chicken Tacos

I feel like I should be sharing a recipe that’s appropriate for the Thanksgiving Day holiday, but I’m going to be a rebel and share a taco recipe instead. Have you ever made a chicken taco?  Usually I think of beef in tacos, but I did recently make cauliflower tacos so I guess I have more options than I realized.  These chicken tacos are so delicious and I’ve been missing out. I’m picky with my chicken so you know this is the real deal delicious stuff. Guys, this chicken is awesome. Something I definitely never thought I’d say. The spices …

Taco Soup

If you’re wondering what taco soup is, then you’re not alone because I had the same question. A few weeks ago my husband found this recipe online and he said “we should try this because it looks good.” It’s not often that he suggests a recipe to try and I’m always looking for new ones so I happily agreed. But I wondered what taco soup was. When I gathered the ingredients together I told my husband that it looked like we were making chili. It has all the makings for, wait for it, chili. Beef and beans, yup, sounds like …

Cauliflower Tacos

Do you like tacos? I’m guessing the answer is yes because who doesn’t. No, seriously, if you don’t like tacos then I… Mind blown. I think tacos are a favorite because they are delicious (duh). But really, it’s because you can make them however you like. Load them up with ingredients that you love. If you don’t like avocado, then skip it (shout out to my mom since I know that she isn’t a fan). These tacos are vegetarian and are all about the cauliflower. They may not look pretty but I had to take a picture of them before …

Deconstructed Stuffed Peppers

Do you ever take short cuts with high maintenance recipes? I did that today. My mom used to make stuffed peppers when I was a kid. If you’re not familiar with what a stuffed peppers meal is, it’s a hollowed out bell pepper stuffed with a rice and meat mixture. It’s quite good, except I always felt like there was too much pepper and not enough filling. In fact, when I told my mom that I was making this version she told me that my dad used to only eat the filling and give her the pepper. I’m genuinely laughing …

Zucchini Ravioli

I never thought that I’d really enjoy an Italian meal that’s missing pasta.  This zucchini ravioli is amazing. The zucchini  is the “ravioli” part of this recipe.  You use a vegetable peeler to slice thin wide strips (think of lasagna noodles).  Then you fill the zucchini slices with a ricotta cheese mixture and it ends up looking like a ravioli.  Nifty, right?  I’m a girl who loves pasta, and I thought I’d miss it, but I don’t.  Maybe it’s because you still get a whole lot of cheese and let’s face it, cheese makes everything better. Especially Italian dishes. My …
