Chicken Fajitas

The boyfriend and I made chicken fajitas the other night. It was a nice easy dinner to make at the end of a work week. We used the rest of the chipotle lime crema from the mahi mahi tacos, too. We also had grilled corn on the cob on the side. I know the Italian

Mahi Mahi Tacos with Broccoli Slaw and Chipotle Lime Crema

A flour tortilla flat on a plate (not folded) topped with pieces of grilled fish, broccoli slaw, and a crema sauce

These fresh fish tacos with grilled Mahi Mahi have just enough flavor that doesn’t overpower the fish. The broccoli slaw is a great texture contrast with the fish. A chipotle lime crema ties all of the flavors and textures together.

Broccoli Slaw

Broccoli slaw

I made this broccoli slaw to go on fish tacos, but it also makes a good side dish. It’s easy to make a lot, so it would be a good make and take side for a potluck. This recipe uses Greek yogurt, which I used to hate, until my boyfriend made a corn salad using

Mango Salsa

Mango Salsa

My boyfriend went on a fishing trip last weekend and caught a ton of Mahi Mahi. I made this mango salsa to go with some of the grilled fish. Later in the week, I used it on tempura Mahi Mahi sushi. It’s also a good snack with tortilla chips. You could also put avocado in it,

Pasta with Easy Homemade Creamy Tomato Sauce

Pasta with Easy Homemade Creamy Tomato Sauce

I needed something quick and easy to make for dinner the other night. I’d just been to Lidl, and I got a pack of tricolor fusilli pugliesi, which I really wanted to use. This recipe would be good with pretty much any type of pasta, though. This is definitely coming to work with me for

Sirloin Chili (Dutch Oven or Slow Cooker)

Sirloin chili

This chili was perfect for the snow day we had here a couple of weeks ago. I let it simmer on the stove for several hours, but it could also be done in a slow cooker. The beef was super tender, and the chili had a lot of flavor. I’ve included instructions for either method below.

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Yesterday was a bit of a surprise snow day. It was supposed to snow a little bit, but not all day long. I took half the day off to work on some projects around the house, so I knew I wouldn’t want to spend a lot of time making dinner at the end of the

Garlic & Herb Whipped Potatoes

I served these under braised short ribs on Christmas. I went heavier on the red wine and lighter on the beef stock than what I have previously done for braised short ribs, so I will have to post that recipe soon, too. I also made these on New Year’s Day using a different flavor of
