Blueberry Coffee Cake

Blueberry Coffee Cake
I wanted to make a special breakfast for the kids this morning and found this Blueberry Coffee Cake recipe that looked DELICIOUS! I decided to give it a try and am so happy that I did. WOW…was it amazing! Disclaimer…it is LOADED with butter and sugar but I keep telling myself that I used a whole cup of greek yogurt instead of sour cream so it was a lot healthier๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Portobello

Stuffed Portobello
I’m a big mushroom fan so when I found this Stuffed Portobello Mushroom recipe, it became a quick addition to our menu. It didn’t disappoint! This meal was filling but still light. While I could have eaten two mushroom caps, one was enough for me to feel satisfied…although Xander ate three!

This healthy meal really is a breeze to throw together. It doesn’t take much time at all to prep and then it bakes for about 20 minutes. You could easily have dinner served in 30 minutes. Great for a busy weeknight when time is a hot commodity.

Air Fryer Fried Oreos

Fried Oreos
We stumbled upon this recipe for Fried Oreos and Kenxie’s eye immediately lit up. She could not wait to get all the ingredients so she could make these all by herself. The recipe was super simple and easy for her to follow. She did a great job making the Fried Oreos.

Once she had them made, she was ready to place them in the air fryer. No oil needed for this fried treat! I was a little doubtful that the dough would be done in 4 minutes but it was. The bottom stuck slightly to our wire trays in the air fryer but not enough to cause a hole in the bottom of the treat.

$250 Cookie Recipe

$250 Cookies
I wanted to love this $250 Cookie Recipe. I was hoping these cookies would live up their name but I was left underwhelmed. They were just another cookie…not bad just ok. Nothing I’m left craving more of. When it comes to cookies, I want them to be worth the extra calories not just an ok dessert. That being said, I’m glad we tried these $250 Cookies at least once. Just to say that we gave it a go ๐Ÿ™‚

Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Stuffed Spaghetti Squash
This Stuffed Spaghetti Squash is a veggie packed, filling meal with a Mexican twist. All the veggies are combined with chicken, enchilada sauce, and topped with pepper jack cheese.

To save time on chopping the zucchini, I used my veggie chopper. Such a handy tool for saving some serious time on food prep. This chopper comes with three different sized chopping plates so it can be used for prepping a variety of foods.

Spinach & Artichoke Soup

Spinach & Artichoke Soup

I ❤️ spinach and I ❤️ artichokes so this Spinach & Artichoke Soup sounded like it was made just for me. I have to say I was a little skeptical as I was making it but it all came together and tasted like the soup version of a very tasty spinach and artichoke dip…you know the kind that is loaded with cheese…a heart attack waiting to happen. Yep, that’s the one!

Shrimp and Black Bean Tacos

Shrimp and Black Bean Tacos
Have I mentioned that I LOVE tacos ๐ŸŒฎ I typically like shrimp tacos, but they are usually not my favorite. However, this recipe…THIS RECIPE has changed everything. I seriously inhaled these Shrimp and Black Bean Tacos.

These tacos were light, fresh, and filling all at the same time. The rice and beans gave them some serious substance but the shrimp, pico de gallo, and avocado lighten them up and made for a fresh pop of flavor with each bite.

Crock Pot BBQ Baked Potatoes

BBQ Baked Potatoes
So…this meal isn’t one of my all time favorite meals (it’s good but not fantastic) but…that being said, I’ve made it MANY times. It takes a matter of minutes to throw these BBQ Baked Potatoes into the crock pot in the morning and when you get home, dinner is ready. All that you have to do is quickly shred the chicken and get out whatever potato toppings you’d like. On those busy nights when you have ZERO time to prepare dinner, this is an option that beats the McDonalds drive through.

In our house, in addition to the shredded BBQ chicken, we like to add cheese to our potatoes. The kids like bacon too! If I have some green onions, I’ll cut some of those up to sprinkle on top. You could also add butter, sour cream, more BBQ sauce…really anything you’d like to make this potato as loaded as your heart desires.

Bean and Pico Tostadas

Bean and Pico Tostadas
When you are in need of a meal that you can prepare in less than 10 minutes, give these Bean and Pico Tostadas a try. They aren’t fancy but any means but they are pretty tasty for the amount of time and effort you have to put into serving dinner.

To make these a little healthier, you could make your own tostadas. If you go this route, it will increase the prep time a bit. Still a super quick meal to prepare but it is an added step. I went the quick and easy route tonight and bought premade tostadas at Aldi.

Venison and Asparagus Stir Fry

Venison and Asparagus Stir FryThis Venison and Asparagus Stir Fry is my all time favorite meal. I remember my dad making it for us as far back as I can remember. That may be why it’s one of my favs…brings back memories and you can’t beat the comfort of home cooking.

I actually don’t know if I’ve ever had this recipe with beef. I always use venison chops or steaks instead. Yet…you could easily sub out the venison for steak if you’d prefer ๐Ÿ™‚
