Blanco Queso

Last night, my sister was pretty bored….And well, we all know boredom=hunger in our family.  It’s a pretty special trait if you ask me. ;p  It was a great excuse to spend some time on Pinterest, narrow down our options, and take a trip to Publix for all the ingredients.  After that, we spent the evening… Read More Blanco Queso

Cheesy Shrimp & Grits

A few months after we were married, Mikey and I took a little weekend trip to a very small town called Mt. Dora.  It was definitely a quiet little place.  We stayed at a Bed and Breakfast (for the first time) and it was equal parts fun and awkward. :p  We were the only guests… Read More Cheesy Shrimp & Grits

Slow Cooker Shredded Mexican Chicken

For Cinco de Mayo, I wanted to make a typical Mexican meal.  I’m all into Mexican food, but Mikey isn’t really.  However, he humored me because it was just one day. 😉  He absolutely loved this meal, though!  The chicken was so tasty and with so much sauce, it tasted perfectly!  It also helps that… Read More Slow Cooker Shredded Mexican Chicken

Baked Chicken Parmesan

My all time favorite type of food is Italian.  Oh, how I love pasta and they cheesy goodness layered over it.  My husband isn’t such a fan, but he indulges me every now and then… A few nights ago I was craving a yummy pasta dish, but didn’t want something too fattening (still working on… Read More Baked Chicken Parmesan

Another post on potatoes. Yes, I know.  I’m addicted, and I can’t help it.  They’re just soooo good!  I love finding new ways to cook them and serve them.  Whether they’re in appetizer form, a side or even made into bread rolls, I absolutely love them (especially with a some sour cream!).  And to be… Read More Roasted Potato Wedges & Garlic Aioli Sauce

Dinner

Pork Chops & Creamy Herb Sauce

Growing up, pork wasn’t a regular menu item.  It was served more as a celebration meal (Cubans eat pork for Christmas instead of a turkey…and sometimes even for Thanksgiving).  But I do remember, when my grandma would make pork chops, they were pretty darn delicious!  These days, I still don’t cook much of it, but… Read More Pork Chops & Creamy Herb Sauce

Ranch Doritos Chicken

After a get together recently, I had an entire leftover bag of Doritos.  I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it since we don’t usually eat chips much around here, so I began to rack my brain for a good recipe to create with it.  After a few different ideas, this was the best… Read More Ranch Doritos Chicken
