Mahi Mahi Tacos with Broccoli Slaw and Chipotle Lime Crema

Prepare yourself for a lot or Mahi Mahi posts in the near future. My boyfriend went on a fishing trip last weekend, and caught a lot! So far, we've made it grilled, tempura fried, into cooked sushi rolls, and now tacos. These tacos were amazing. I'd pay good money for these in a restaurant. The… Continue reading Mahi Mahi Tacos with Broccoli Slaw and Chipotle Lime Crema

Granny’s Cucumber Tea Sandwiches

I was talking to my mom about the menu for my party this weekend, and she suggested I make my grandmother's cucumber sandwiches. She went on and on about how great they are. Unfortunately, I don't remember Granny ever making these for me, so I had to take my mom's word for it (and thankfully… Continue reading Granny’s Cucumber Tea Sandwiches

Pulled Pork Burrito Bowls With Salsa Verde & Chipotle Sour Cream

I have a lot of home improvement projects going on at the moment, and my main goal last Sunday was getting my dog room finished. I knew I'd need most of the afternoon for that, so I wanted to make something easy that I could quickly assemble for dinner and lunches later on. I got… Continue reading Pulled Pork Burrito Bowls With Salsa Verde & Chipotle Sour Cream

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.

Chipotle Lime Fajitas

I was having some friends over for dinner, but didn't have much time after getting home. I had a bell pepper that needed to be used, shrimp in the freezer, and there was skirt steak on sale at Wegmans. The marinade was super easy, and the meat didn't need to marinate for very long. The… Continue reading Chipotle Lime Fajitas

Chicken Tortilla Soup

I've always been a huge fan of chicken tortilla soup. This recipe is really similar to the one I made before, but I like the new and improved version a lot better! I didn't have to troubleshoot this recipe at all for being too spicy or salty. This recipe makes a ton (6.75 quart dutch… Continue reading Chicken Tortilla Soup

Spiralized German Cucumber Salad

I got a spiralizer this weekend, so I'm trying to make different things with it. Spiralized cucumbers were a success, so I'll definitely be making more cucumber salads that way. Cucumber salad is one of my favorite sides/snacks. I'm actually eating this one right now while I write this post. It's dilly and tangy -… Continue reading Spiralized German Cucumber Salad
