You guys, my family and I just moved back to socal. I am so happy to be back in the golden state amongst some of my favorite restaurants! Islands Restaurant is something I have loved since my college days. I'm a sucker for a good blue cheese burger. But my husband always gets an entree called the yaki tacos - as in teriyaki tacos. They have grilled chicken drizzled with teriyaki sauce, shredded lettuce, cheese, and pineapple salsa. Sounds pretty delicious huh? It's also incredibly easy to . . .
Tacos are amazing right? You really can't get sick of tacos. They are so versitle. Besides from the party in your mouth -they are low fat, low carb, easily gluten-free, and easily vegetarian too for that matter. I LOVE tacos. I love corn tortillas with just carne asada, onions and cilantro or piled high with meat, cheese and veggies. Rubio's Grilled Chicken Taco Love I have a problem with Rubio's grilled chicken tacos. Seriously crave them every time I go out. It's soo worth getting a . . .
Have I ever told you that I hate tomatoes and onions? I'm sure I have. Because of this aversion I have always steered clear of the classic seven layer dip, but as I've gotten older I've become a little braver and now eat some dishes with tomato and onion. When I tasted seven layer dip I was floored and I loved it! How could I love tomatoes? I don't know, but I know that seven layer dip is about as delicious as it comes.

I love my simple dinner recipes. These Steak Fajita Tacos are on that list. Most nights out of the week I don't have time or patience to slave away in the kitchen to make an elaborate dinner. Which is the theme of this sheet pan meal week - keep it simple, keep it tasty, and keep it low maintenance. Dinner Made Easy This recipe takes me 30 minutes tops and 20 minutes of that time it's baking in the oven. Just because it's simple and quick doesn't mean it lacks taste. Fajitas are always my . . .
I'm really loving this Buddha Bowl week! They're healthy and do wonders for your PB&J lunches. When we were texting about what recipes we'd do, I immediately knew my newest obsession, these Chimichurri Grilled Chicken Bowls were my ticket. Chimichurri I've had chimichurri a few times before, some better than others, and even have another recipe on the site for Chimichurri Steak Tacos. But when my Argentine neighbor moved in two houses down, you know I hit her up for her chimichurri. . . .
I don't want to toot my own horn, but this recipe is GOOD. Each time I make it, every crumb is devoured. This burrito bowl has been my go-to meal prep meal as of late. It has been a lunch I have looked forward to, and I don't feel guilty about eating. BURRITO BOWLS FOR THE SOUL I want to tell you how this recipe came to be. About four months back, my then-2-year-old son was diagnosed with cancer. It was and has been a very trying time for my family. My little boy, Graham, has been in . . .
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. . . .
We love tacos. I can't tell you how many posts we have here that have that sentence in it. You know what makes tacos lousy? Store-bought tortillas. You know what makes tacos great? Homemade flour tortillas. . . .
Fajita Stuffed Chicken... is that even a thing?! Well I just made it a thing and it's delicious! Juicy chicken, rubbed with spices and filled with sautéed bell peppers and chilies. It's a fajita lovers twisted dream! Amazing I know, and to top it off we are hosting a giveaway with American Kitchen! The two pans showcased in today's post will be going to someone special! . . .
My husband, Jim, grew up in a town in northern San Diego called Fallbrook. The town is known for its amazing avocado groves. They claim the title of "The Avocado Capitol of the Country." They even have an avocado festival there each year. So -people that grew up there probably know a thing or two about guacamole. :) Jim's brother, Bob, makes this guacamole and it's awesome! My kids call him "Uncle Bob" and are completely smitten with him. After all - he plays trains and cars with . . .
