Tacos are a big deal around here. We even taught a taco and salsa class at Pinner's Conference last fall. Taco Tuesdays are a tradition at our house - so I was anxious to make this Beef Barbacoa in my Instant Pot. I love that the Instant Pot produces textures as if the food was slowly cooked all day - but in a fraction of the time. . . .
I think I've found one my newest favorite kitchen gadget. The pressure cooker. Aubrey and I have been testing out these Power Pressure Cooker XLs over the last several months and I have been SO IMPRESSED. We knew we wanted to see how well they work and what we could do with them, but we were especially excited to see what dinners could be made super fast in honor of this crazy back-to-school time and all of the upcoming busy weeknights we are anticipating. I was not disappointed at all with how . . .
Today were having an early celebration for FATHERS DAY!! We have a wonderful GIVEAWAY and a perfect meal for the man in your life.... Did you catch yesterday's post with the Cilantro Lime Butter to pair with chicken kabobs? Today's recipe is a perfect match deep flavor and steak. Either herb butter from today or yesterday will please your man, either of these recipes can be used on a either type of meat. And they don't have to be kabobs either. Kabobs are really family friendly for several . . .
Growing up my mom would always make this dish with leftover roast. I enjoyed this leftover meal waaayyyy more than I enjoyed the roast. I was thinking about this beef noodle dish because my mom whipped it up with roast leftovers after I had my baby. If you love a Sunday pot roast then this recipe is PERFECT for those leftovers. But - I took the plunge and cooked a roast JUST for this dish. I cut the roast in half after it was cooked and saved the other half for another meal. But back to . . .
Can I get a show of hands for the Bombay House lovers out there?! Holllllaaaaaaa! My husband and I fell in love with Indian food in Provo. Who would have thought Provo would be such a mecca for fine international cuisines? Indian, Thai, Vietnamese (I've heard), they do it all extraordinarily well. Especially during the fall, I'm always looking for opportunities to use different spices, like adding some Indian flavor. Have you heard of garam masala? It's an Indian spice that may be difficult . . .
Growing up beef and cheese enchiladas were always a favorite...that love has spilled over into my own little family as well. These are always a delicious, easy, comfort food that we enjoy. My mom always relied on the seasoning packet for these babies - 'cause lets face it - canned red sauce is...well...yucky. I actually really like the good ol' seasoning packet as well, but making homemade is nearly as easy and twice as good! You probably have all of the seasoning in your spice . . .
There are few things I enjoy more than a perfectly grilled steak. I love grilled meals period. Fast, tasty, and easy! My husband and I use a gas grill. We started off with charcoal, but converted to gas because of the convenience. No pre-heating, no waiting, just turn it on and go. Another thing I love about grilling is it give the family a chance to hang out outside while dinner is being cooked. Here's my oldest little goofball cruising' the patio in his cozy coupe after church while . . .
Summer is kicking off all over the country, air conditioners are cranking, the sun is going to bed later (and subsequently so are my kids) and summer foods are everywhere. I LOVE this season. I love so much about it- swimming, picnics, fresh farmers markets. Days at the lakes, nights under the stars. Summer is awesome. I love grilling. and while summer is paired with grilling I love grilling all year long. I love the taste of the food but more over I love that grilling produces a meal with very . . .
Err? Green Machine Week? What the does that mean? WELLLL> I was trying to think of something we could do for St. Patricks Day so naturally I thought green. Second, I feel like between my busy schedule, my pregnant tired body and my husband stuck in busy season my diet has gone to pot. I want some inspiration to eat and take care of my body more healthily, flavorful and fun. So what not a week of healthy greens? For this meal First, You want to start off by marinating your meat in a . . .
Want a simple dinner with less than 4 ingredients? Seriously, it could be 3. Maybe 2 but probably 3. Slow-Cooker Italian Beef Sandwiches. Or some may call, Pepperoncini BeefLiterally all you need is a good beef roast and a bottle of pepperoncini's. The third ingredient is the bread to serve it on, and the fourth maybe a good cheese to broil on the buns. I went with some havarti cheese and it was perfect. So literally only 2 ingredients. Seems kinda weird right? Odd combo maybe? I thought . . .
