Hummus is my favorite healthy snack to keep around the house. It’s filled with protein and good fats, and this particular recipe is also packed with extra vitamins from the spinach and artichokes.

Over the years, I’ve experimented with different hummus flavors. Sriracha Hummus is my favorite for when I want a little heat in my hummus! Nutella Hummus is my favorite fruit dip. And Beet Hummus is my favorite bright and beautiful dip for snacking on by the pool in the summer!

This Spinach Artichoke Hummus is a healthy twist on the popular dip. It’s a great snack to keep around throughout the year. It’s also a fun green snack for St Patricks Day! Serve it with Shamrock Shaped Green Bell Peppers for a festive and healthy snack on St Patty’s!

Mexican Meatloaf

Mexican Meatloaf puts a spicy twist on a classic favorite with jalapenos, chili powder & cayenne pepper. This recipe is so delicious & easy to make!

While I didn’t grow up loving meatloaf, it’s now one of my favorites! This Mexican Meatloaf was the first meatloaf recipe I ever made back in 2012.

Since then, I’ve created this seriously scrumptious Buffalo Cheesy Meatloaf, the best ever Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf and a Heart Shaped Meatloaf. Because what says “I love you” more than a delicious loaf of meat? 😉

Once I realized that you could kick up a traditional meatloaf with tons of flavor and spice, I was totally down with the classic dish!

I love this Mexican Meatloaf for so many reasons. First, I love Mexican food, so adding Mexican flavors to any dish makes it a win in my book! It’s also loaded with veggies!

For the parents out there, you’re going to love how many veggies are hidden in this meatloaf. Most meatloaf recipes contain two pounds of ground meat. This recipe contains one pound of ground beef and one pound of veggies. Ground turkey can also be used in place of the ground beef for a lower calorie option.

This meatloaf is delicious leftover and you can even turn it into a scrumptious Meatloaf Hash for breakfast! It’s also easy to make gluten free and vegetarian. Check out the recipe notes below to learn how!

Mexican Potatoes

Cheesy mashed potatoes are combined with peppers, chilies & spices. This delicious & easy recipe for Mexican Potatoes is the perfect side dish for your next fiesta!

I love potatoes, Blue Cheese Mashed Potatoes, Chipotle Chili Stuffed Sweet Potatoes, Crispy Cast Iron Potatoes. No matter how you serve them, potatoes are one of my favorite veggies!

While making a Mexican Meatloaf to celebrate my Dad’s birthday in 2012, I decided that I needed the perfect potato recipe to accompany the meatloaf.

I was inspired by one of my favorite Oklahoma Mexican food restaurants, Ted’s Escondido, to make these Mexican Potatoes. On their menu, they’re called “Pappas Mexicanos” and they’re described as a delicious combination of potatoes, cream, onions and spices.

I knew that they would be the perfect side dish for the Mexican Meatloaf. So I created my own version at home!

These Mexican Potatoes have been a staple at my house ever since! I still love serving them with the meatloaf, but they’re also the perfect side dish for a number of Mexican recipes.

Serve Slow Cooked Beef Barbacoa over these mashed potatoes for a seriously scrumptious meal! Or serve them as a side on Taco Tuesday. They’re great with Chipotle Honey Pulled Pork Tacos or Vegan Grilled Veggie Tacos!

I love brunch! So much so that I have a group of friends nicknamed the “SBC: Sunday Brunch Crew”. I love making brunch and going out to brunch. In my world, if the question is brunch, the answer is always yes!

I’ve made so many brunch recipes over the years that it’s impossible to pick a favorite. This Meatloaf Hash definitely ranks up there though!

When it comes to sweet brunch dishes, I can never get enough Strawberry Pancakes with Cream Cheese Syrup or Salted Caramel Cinnamon Rolls.

When hosting a brunch at my house, I always like to serve at least one egg dish, a potato dish and something sweet.

I first made this Crockpot Breakfast Casserole recipe for Father’s Day 2014. I was hosting a brunch for friends and family and wanted to make recipes that could easily feed a crowd!

Since that brunch, I’ve made this breakfast casserole dozens of times. It’s not only great for a crowd at brunch, this easy breakfast casserole is perfect for meal prepping throughout the week.

Toss this casserole in the crockpot on Sunday, then reheat it for breakfast throughout the week. It’s great on it’s own or rolled up in a tortilla for a breakfast burrito.

You can also eat it as breakfast for dinner. No matter the time of day, I’m always down for breakfast foods!

Instant Pot Mushroom Risotto

The BEST Instant Pot Risotto recipe is so easy to make! Mushrooms, garlic, French onion dip mix & parmesan cheese add a ton of flavor to this tasty dish!

Risotto is one of my favorite Italian dishes. It’s rich, creamy and so delicious!

I can’t wait to make this Butternut Squash Risotto every fall! And I love serving this Cilantro Lime Pesto Risotto with Mexican food.

The one thing about risotto that I don’t like is the hands-on time it takes to make risotto. It’s not hard to make. You just have to hang out by the stove for 30-45 minutes ladling broth into the risotto. That’s what makes risotto so creamy!

I thought there was no way that Instant Pot Risotto was going to create the same creamy texture as traditional risotto. But it does!

I took me a few attempts to get the perfect rice to broth ratio down. But in the end, I created the most creamy, dreamy Instant Pot Risotto!

No more standing around the stove to get the perfect creamy risotto. Just spend 10 minutes sautéing ingredients in the Instant Pot, then pop the lid on. Pour yourself a glass of wine and relax while the Instant Pot does the work for you!
