One-Pot Chicken and Gnocchi

We have a tradition of “Sunday Supper” in our family. It’s a lot of fun…usually a little “fancier” than the run-of-the-mill week night (we even drink water from wine glasses 😉). Anywho, tonight was one of my favorites! Enjoy! INGREDIENTS 2   slices bacon, cut into ½” (1-cm) pieces 6   boneless, skinless chicken thighs (4 oz./125…

“What’s Poppin’” Stuffed Chicken

Do you ever get tired of basic chicken recipes? We have done a lot of grilling this summer (which is good and fun, but we were tired of the usual grilled chicken and needed a break) These turned out really well, I recommend trying them! This recipe can easily be adjusted for personal taste. Like…

Needless…

Easy Peasy Guacamole

I used to buy Guacamole pre-made at the grocery. I always liked it and ate it weekly. Then I tried making it at home from fresh ingredients… game changer. I didn’t know what I was missing until that point. I will never go back! I don’t HATE the store bought…but after growing up with parents…

Lit salsa verde chicken tostados…

Most of my life revolves around food, so I guess it makes sense that this blog would start with food posts, ha. I’m either making food,eating food, or simply thinking about what the next food I make and eat is! Sounds sad, I know, but before you judge I have some good reasons. First, I’m…
