Smothered Baked Chicken Burritos

Burritos got that much better smothered in a cheesy green chile sauce and loaded with toppings.

Occasionally, I like to make something that is maybe a little more involved and this recipe is that. The shredded chicken for the burritos, I'm sure, could be made ahead before the day you make the actual burritos. But they are also fine for the day of. The chicken is in the crockpot - so set it and forget it. Then you assemble the burritos for baking and prepare the cheese sauce while they bake. It's a lot of ingredients, but not as much work as much as prep.

Butterfinger Butterscotch Cookies

Soft oat cookies with chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and bits of Butterfinger candy bars.

I know it's a whole thing of people thinking they are getting a chocolate chip cookie and it's oatmeal raisin and they hate it, but I am not one of those people. Well, maybe. I definitely love chocolate chip cookies, but I also love oatmeal raisin too. Now these cookies are like a beautiful mixture of the two plus butterscotch chips and Butterfinger candy bits. What's not to love about that? It reminds me a lot of cowboy cookies or everything but the kitchen sink cookies. With a little patience with the freezing time, you get wonderful cookies!

Greek Chicken Gyros

Flatbreads topped with fresh vegetables, Greek-marinated chicken, and tzatziki

I cannot get enough of anything that includes naan or pita, fresh vegetables, feta, and tzatziki. There is a local food place where I get chicken shwarma and gyro plates all the time and it's my obsession at the moment. I really liked the ease of this recipe where it's really just marinate the chicken and then cook it. Everything else is just chop or scoop and you're good to go. It's such a fresh and bright meal.

Creamy Herb Pasta

A quick, easy pasta dish with creamy herb sauce!

Hello and happy 2023! I'm attempting to see if I can get myself on a posting schedule. My goal is to maybe post once a week and go from there. I think I only posted 3 recipes last year, so I'm already a third of the way there :)

I know everyone is now very anti-words in recipe posts, but I'm going to throw some out there because I've been so MIA. I started my career in mid-2021 as an accountant for tv/film production companies at a local firm. After 14 years as a stay-at-home mom, it was a huge transition. I still struggle with trying to juggle everything but I'm trying to cut myself slack and really work on my time management. There are a lot of times where I forget to thaw meat that I need and I have to say, my 2022 birthday gift was an Instant Pot and holy baloney - that has been a lifesaver.

This recipe is a great recipe for chaotic nights. I really love when things can just be thrown together and it's very simple ingredients. I feel like you could switch up the vegetable if you really wanted to.

Happy New Year!

Hi everyone,

I'm still here and eventually I'll get my act together to start posting again. I haven't forgotten. Life has been pure chaos and my blogging hobby has definitely been put on the back burner. I was totally disappointed to not be able to do the Countdown week like I normally do to wrap up the year, but maybe this year I'll get there :)

Happy 2023 to everyone! Wishing you all the joy and good health in the new year!
