Crock Pot recipes like this one are definitely my saving grace on busy weeknights. Now that the weather is cooling down, I am constantly craving things like this hearty Slow Cooker Beef Stew. With beef, potatoes, carrots and onions, this is a full meal in itself. I love that this is a quick and easy meal to prepare, that there is only one pot to clean up and that it is a delicious meal that everyone will enjoy!
In the winter months (and sometimes in the summer, too), if I ask my husband what he wants for dinner, I am going to get one of two answers – potato soup or The Best Spicy Chili. I have been making my chili this same way for years, and I have yet to have any better! If you like your food with a kick, you are going to love this recipe! Making this chili takes just about 15 minutes, and then you will just let all of the flavors simmer together. Top it with some sour cream, shredded cheese, green onion or avocado and enjoy it with some crackers or cornbread. Try this one out – you won’t regret it!
Comfort food for me is anything meaty, cheesy and saucy, and pasta is definitely in my top spot. This Easy Cheesy Taco pasta is the perfect meal for those days when you just need some delicious, satisfying comfort food. This is a dish that a lot of kids will enjoy, and it is quick and simple to make, so it is the perfect weeknight family dinner. We like to top ours with some extra hot salsa, sour cream, extra shredded cheese and sometimes cilantro. I hope you enjoy this as much as we do!
This Strip Steak with Horseradish Cream Sauce is so very quick and easy to make, and it only has 1 carb per serving! This is a recipe that is packed full of flavor, is super tender and is perfect for any diet or lifestyle. A crisp salad, fresh veggies or a loaded potato would be perfect with this. This is a great recipe for anything from a simple weeknight dinner to a dinner party with friends.
I personally feel like flank steak is a highly underappreciated cut of beef. It is considerably less expensive per pound than many other steaks, it cooks a lot faster than thicker pieces of meat, and it is great for so many things from fajitas, salads, sandwiches and mostly as a vehicle for a delicious marinade. This Cilantro Lime Marinated Flank Steak is super easy to make, great to throw on the grill and serve to guests, low carb (only 1 net carb/serving!) and LOADED with flavor. Try it out for yourself and see!
If meaty, cheesy and saucy are three adjectives that get you a little excited – you have come to the right place! These Jumbo Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs are just what the name implies. They are flavorful ground beef meatballs stuffed with fresh mozzarella and baked in a bed of freshly made marinara sauce. All of this may sound like it takes an extreme amount of work to put together, but the meatballs and sauce come together in 10 minutes or less. After that, you just stick them in the oven, wait patiently and enjoy! If you are REALLY hungry, serve these up with some warm pasta, but I like them with a simple side salad or some fresh veggies.
Sometimes I am in the mood for a healthy salad or smoothie, or maybe a light chicken dish, and then sometimes I want a big, fat, cheesy, saucy burger. You can probably guess which craving I was having when these Pepperoni Pizza Burgers were created. Our family, like many, loves all things pizza. We go crazy for pizza grilled cheese, skillet pizza chicken, BBQ chicken pizza and especially a delivery pizza when mommy “just can’t”. This is a recipe that your whole family (especially the kids) will love and the best part is – it really doesn’t require much effort!
These Vietnamese Beef Bowls are a great quick, easy and healthy option for weeknight dinners. The saucy and flavorful ground beef is served over my habanero lime rice. Hoisin sauce gives this dish just the hint of sweetness that it needs, and the chili paste gives it just enough spice. All in, these rice bowls come in at less than 500 calories, so they are a delicious meal that you shouldn’t feel guilty about enjoying!
