If there’s one thing you’ll never find a lack of on this blog it’s tacos! They’re one of my favorite foods and I love to find various cooking methods and ingredients to make tacos.

I use the slow cooker to make Beef Barbacoa Tacos and Chipotle Honey Pulled Pork Tacos.

I use the grill to make Carne Asada Tacos and Grilled Veggie Chimichurri Tacos.

Now I’m busting out my Instant Pot to make Pressure Cooker Chicken Tacos!

These tacos are seriously easy to make and you can serve them a variety of different ways. Keep it traditional and serve them in corn or flour tortillas or crispy taco shells. Serve the chicken over rice for taco bowls or lettuce for taco salads. For a whole30 and low carb option, serve the chicken in lettuce wraps with sliced avocado.

No matter how you serve them, you’re going to love the simplicity and deliciousness of these pressure cooker chicken tacos!

One of my families favorite easy dinners growing up was BBQ baked chicken and baked potatoes. It was so easy to pour bbq sauce over chicken and toss it in the oven with a few potatoes to make a dinner for the entire family in about 5 minutes.

Of course I added buffalo sauce to this easy family favorite, because that’s what I do!

You can make an entirely “buffalo-ed” meal by adding Buffalo Blue Cheese Mashed Potatoes, Spicy Buffalo Macaroni Salad, Buffalo Potato SkinsBuffalo Mac & Cheese or Buffalo Cheddar Biscuits on the side of this BBQ Buffalo Chicken!

Thank you to Vons for sponsoring this post!

On a day to day basis, there’s a good chance you’ll find me in one of two places, in the kitchen or at the grocery store. Fitting, since I’m a food blogger and all! 😉

Sometimes I go to the grocery store and get straight to business, I could pretty much navigate my local Vons with my eyes closed and get everything I need. I always joke that if Supermarket Sweep were still a show, I’d win every time!

Other times, I just peruse the aisles of Vons looking for new recipe inspiration. That’s why I’m so excited to announce that I’ve partnered up with Vons to do just that!

Bruschetta Chicken Parmesan Recipe

When it comes to comfort food, I think of recipes I grew up with in Oklahoma, biscuits and gravy, mac and cheese and my Dad’s fried chicken. Now that I’m living a healthier lifestyle in California, I’ve had to redefine comfort food.

New comfort food to me is incorporating some of the aspects of the old comfort food favs in new, healthier, yet still totally delicious, ways!

For example, using spaghetti squash instead of pasta in Mac & Cheese, like in this recipe for Cheesy Jalapeno Popper Spaghetti Squash, or going the other direction and using butternut squash to make the sauce in Mac & Cheese creamier with the use of less cheese, like I did in this recipe for Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese.

Bowls in the food world are the equivalent to Game Of Thrones in the TV world, SO HOT RIGHT NOW! If you google “Bowl Trend In Food” you’ll find dozens of articles about how “Bowls Are The New Plates”. Yes, that’s actually the title of an article from The Wall Street Journal!

This is one food trend that I’m not upset about at all! You can pack a lot of healthy ingredients into a bowl, while also adding a ton of flavor to make it super tasty!

A few weeks ago I hopped on the trend with a delicious recipe for Thai Peanut Pineapple Veggie Rice Bowls. Although technically I was ahead of the trend with my Gluten Free Kung Pao Beef & Noodle Bowl that I introduced in 2013!

Today I’m sharing a new chicken recipe that incorporates one of my favorite cooking methods, grilling, into the trendy new bowl phenomenon! Bruschetta plus chicken, equals a match made in heaven! Combine the two on top of fresh, healthy zucchini noodles and you’ve got one winning bowl recipe!

The olive oil, balsamic vinegar and tomato juice from the bruschetta act as a dressing on the zucchini noodles. And the pieces of tomato add a burst of freshness and flavor to every bite!

If you have time in the morning, toss the chicken in the marinade. (Don’t worry, it will take less than 5 minutes!) In the evening, toss the chicken on the grill and mix up the bruschetta. Spiralize some zucchini and scrumptious grilled chicken zoodle bowls await you!

Yesterday was the 6 month anniversary of my first date with Kurt!

Over the last 6 months we’ve traveled through two countries, multiple states and several cities, we’ve attended an Elite Eight basketball game, beer festivals and music festivals, spent holidays together and overall, just had a whole lot of fun!

While I love everything we do together, I still have to say that one of my favorite things is cooking for him!

The first meal I ever made him was Three Cheese Manicotti with Italian Sausage Marinara. I had been taking notes since our first date of the things he liked and he mentioned that manicotti was his favorite meal, ricotta was his favorite cheese and how much he loved Italian sausage. I combined all of these things into what is still his favorite dish that I cook for him!
