Allergy-Free Meatloaf

This recipe came in handy when my oldest went through an elimination diet!

I stumbled upon this recipe in, if I remember correctly, Food Allergies for Dummies. Matthew was on an elimination diet at the time but it became one of our go-to meatloaf recipes. It can be made egg free and gluten free!

Italian Pineapple Chicken

Pineapple belongs on pizza and it belongs on Italian marinated chicken too!

I remember being extremely skeptical when I found this recipe - pineapple on chicken?! That's about as strange as strange gets. But I figured I would give it a shot because I thought if the pineapple didn't go with, we could just eat it on the side and the cheesy chicken would be fine on its own. I don't think I've ever made this chicken without pineapple and I've made it countless times. It's something I could make with my eyes closed. I've been known to cube my chicken and pineapple and serve it over rice too.

This classic spicy fast food sandwich is so easy to make at home!

Copycats are one of my very favorite things because the fast food restaurants we have locally near base aren't the most reliable. Furthermore, when the snow hits, I am not brave enough to go far enough to go get the better fast food. These are the biggest reasons why I love making copycat recipes at home. I find that the quality is better and I rarely mess up my own food, so that's a plus.

Sunny Day Rainbow Cake

Any day is a great day to celebrate with this fun, bright layer cake!


**NEW PIC TO COME**

As I am updating my old posts in late 2017, I'm realizing how bad my baking skills were back in the day and how bad my pictures were. I think it's so strange that I posted them to the blog. I hope to make this over again and grease and line my pans, so my cakes don't stick to the bottom and fall apart. Plus I will let them cool before I move them. I literally had a frankenstein's monster cake. It was crazy. Especially for how stunning this cake is when done correctly!

Juicy Burgers

These burgers have never failed to impress at a cookout!

 
*NEW PIC TO COME*

When I want a flavorful burger, this recipe is my go-to. I love seasoning my burgers with just salt and pepper, but sometimes you really need some garlic and smokey flavors and that's why I turn to this recipe.

Steak Fajitas

A super basic recipe that should not be underestimated!

Steak Fajitas // A super basic recipe that should not be underestimated! #recipe #steak #fajitas #maindish

This is pretty basic of a recipe, but my fajitas HAVE TO HAVE only ONE kind of fajita seasoning mix...and that is the Kroger brand. No other fajita seasoning compares...not McCormick, not Taco Bell, NOTHING. So if you don't have a Kroger near by...find a friend or family member and make them send you some. LOL. My husband's mom sends me some when I run out :)

This is a recipe that I have been making for years on end. Nick and I used to grocery shop for my family when I was 17 and he was 18 and we would make steak fajitas for lunch. We have dubbed them steaky hitas. They are very much a comfort food in our relationship :)

These pork chops are definitely a family favorite. My husband isn't huge on pork chops, but he devours these like they are a big fat juicy steak! I typcally serve these with Spanish rice and refried beans...sometimes I serve them up with corn as well. I love how all the elements work together and I especially love the cheese complimenting the salsa and chillies. You could choose a mild salsa or a hot one. The kick is up to you!

Picture Updated 12/13/2013
These muffins are the perfect breakfast to enjoy with a glass of milk. Nick actually dunked his in a glass of milk. The original recipe called for the muffins to be baked at 400 but I found they worked better for me baking at 375. I found it didn't dry them out and they are just seriously magnificent.
