Thin slices of zucchini replace tortillas in this easy recipe for Low Carb Enchiladas. Topped with pepper jack cheese, filled with taco seasoned ground beef & smothered in a delicious red sauce, you won’t even miss the tortillas in this scrumptious recipe! It’s perfect for those on a gluten free or keto diet.
Instead of corn tortillas, traditionally used to make enchiladas, I used thinly sliced zucchini. I layered the zucchini with taco seasoned ground beef, red enchilada sauce and pepper jack cheese. All of the enchilada flavor is there and it’s SO DELICIOUS, but only 17 carbs per serving! This is half of the carbs in traditional enchiladas.
This recipe is not just for those on a low carb diet. It’s also great for those that are gluten free or simply wanting to eat a little healthier. Zucchini is lower in carbs and calories than tortillas. It also provides a significant amount of vitamins C and B6!
It’s so easy to layer up this low carb enchilada recipe and have it on the table in less than 45 minutes!
Learn how to cook the perfect New Zealand grass-fed wagyu steak in a cast iron skillet! Serve the steak with this recipe for Creamy French Onion Mushrooms and you’ve got one seriously delicious dinner!
Today’s post is sponsored by Beef + Lamb New Zealand and First Light.
Today’s recipe is not just any recipe, it’s a recipe made to impress! New Zealand 100% grass-fed Wagyu from First Light has outstanding marbling, creating a tender, delicious steak! The flavor profile is unique with the sweet, nutty notes that Wagyu is famous for and an extra depth of flavor from being raised on grass.
New Zealand cattle is grass-fed year-round. The cattle are raised humanely without antibiotics or hormones and are allowed to roam and graze freely. This healthy, low-stress lifestyle for the animals translates into a healthy, tender steak.
When it comes to cooking grass-fed Wagyu, it couldn’t be easier! Because of the beautiful marbling and fat content in the Wagyu, there’s no need to cook the steak in butter or oil. All you need is a sprinkling of fresh cracked black pepper and sea salt to make this a seriously delicious steak dish.
Grass-fed Wagyu steaks can be cooked on the grill or on the stove in a cast iron skillet. All it needs is a quick sear on high heat, then to finish over medium heat until you reach your preferred temperature.
Mushrooms pair amazingly well with grass-fed Wagyu steaks. In this recipe, I paired a First Light Grass-fed Wagyu New York Strip Steak with Creamy French Onion Mushrooms. They really are a match made in heaven! Creamy, earthy, mushrooms, paired with nutty, grass-fed Wagyu from New Zealand, it really doesn’t get any better than that!
This AMAZING Korean Fried Cauliflower recipe is easy to make and tossed with the most delicious Korean BBQ Sauce! Cauliflower florets are dipped in a wet batter made with rice flour, then pan fried and tossed in the sauce. This scrumptious, simple recipe is both gluten free and vegetarian!
You guys, this is my 100th recipe with this Korean BBQ Sauce. Ok, maybe it’s just my 8th, but soon it will be #100! I just can’t stop putting this Korean BBQ Sauce on everything! It’s so delicious and easy to make!
I love meal-prepping with this easy Korean BBQ Beef recipe. You can serve it in tortillas, lettuce wraps or over rice. And don’t even get me started on these Korean BBQ Short Ribs. Seriously mouthwatering!
As you can see, I’ve made a lot of meat-centric recipes with this Korean BBQ Sauce. But the sauce itself is actually vegan! I decided that it was about time to make a veggie dish with this delicious sauce. This is how Korean Fried Cauliflower was born!
Crispy fried cauliflower + the best Korean BBQ Sauce ever = a match made in heaven!
Italian sausage and ground beef are combined with Italian herbs, parmesan & ricotta cheese in the best Italian meatloaf ever! This recipe is made in under an hour for an easy meal!
I used to think that meatloaf was boring, that is until I started putting my own spins on the classic dish! I mean, who can deny a Buffalo Cheesy Meatloaf? It’s meat, cheese and buffalo sauce, and it’s so delicious!
And there’s 100% chance you’ll fall in love with the Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf. It’s meat wrapped in meat, what’s not to love?
With so many delicious meatloaf recipes to choose from, it’s hard to pick a favorite. Though this Italian Meatloaf definitely ranks up at the top!
Since originally making this recipe 6 years ago, I’ve tweaked it and updated it to create THE BEST Italian Meatloaf ever. Seriously, ask my friends! I make this all the time when I want to impress my guests. As described by one friend, “It’s like the most giant, delicious meatball ever!”
The key to any great recipe for meatloaf or meatballs is a combination of meats. In this recipe I used Italian pork sausage and ground beef. The Italian sausage can be mild or spicy, your choice!
I then add ricotta cheese to the meatloaf to give it an extra creamy texture. I guarantee, this will be the best meatloaf you ever eat and you’ll want to make it again and again!
Gluten Free General Tso Chicken is easy to make in only 20 minutes! This recipe is healthy & even better than Chinese takeout with the most delicious General Tso sauce!
In the blogging world, I’d say that I’m most known for my recipes with buffalo sauce. But coming in at a close second are my gluten free Chinese recipes!
Around the same time I started blogging, my brother was diagnosed with celiac disease. He asked me to recreate some of his Chinese food favorites to make them gluten free.
Being the wonderful sister that I am (haha!) I obliged and created some of his favorite recipes. This Gluten Free Orange Chicken is his all-time favorite. But these recipes for Gluten Free Honey Chicken and Gluten Free General Tso Chicken, both come in at a close second!
Typically, general tso’s consists of battered, deep fried chicken thighs, covered in hoisin sauce. I made this recipe healthy and gluten free by lightly pan frying the chicken, instead of deep frying it. I also used chicken breasts instead of chicken thighs.
Chicken breast meat is lower in calories and fat, creating a healthier dish. I switched up the general tso sauce recipe to give it a similar taste to hoisin without the gluten.
You can actually double, or triple, the sauce ingredients in this recipe. Keep the extra sauce on hand to make more chicken, noodle stir fry or chicken wings throughout the week. The sauce will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for 5-7 days.
Fresh veggies, tortellini pasta, pesto, cheese & sun dried tomatoes make up this creamy vegetarian pesto tortellini recipe. It’s made in one pot, in just 20 minutes, for an easy weeknight meal!
Let me tell you about my love of one pot meals. It’s a great love, a love that can only come from the fact that I absolutely hate doing dishes! One pot meals allow me to wash just one dish at the end of preparing the meal. Yes, please!
But let’s be honest, one pot pasta dishes are always a fan favorite! This One Pot Greek Pasta is a huge hit on the blog. It’s so flavorful, you’ll want to make it every week! And this One Pot Cajun Pasta is always a fun way to spice up a weeknight dinner!
Now when it comes to finding the perfect vegetarian one pot meal, this Vegetarian Tortellini recipe is where it’s at! Creamy cheeses, combined with sun dried tomato pesto make an amazing sauce to toss with the cheesy tortellini and fresh veggies.
This vegetarian tortellini is one of my favorite recipes of all time and I keep it in regular rotation on Meatless Mondays! It’s an easy dinner to make and clean up!
Needless to say, if you’re gluten free, you don’t have to miss out on your favorite Chinese restaurant favorites anymore!
Instead of battering the chicken in flour, I batter it in cornstarch. And instead of deep frying the chicken, I stir fry it on the stove. I use gluten free soy sauce to make the best orange sauce ever!
Out of all the recipes I’ve ever made on the blog, this is my brothers favorite recipe! The best part is, it’s made in just 29 minutes. It’s easy enough to whip up for dinner tonight!
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!
Bust out your Instant Pot and make this Easy Chicken Stroganoff Recipe! Chicken breasts, egg noodles and the best, most creamy sauce are combined for the ultimate comfort food!
After making the best beef stroganoff ever in an Instant Pot, I knew I couldn’t stop there! The very next week I made this Instant Pot Chicken Stroganoff and I was hooked!
We’ve now been eating Instant Pot beef or chicken stroganoff every week since. It’s so good, easy to make and the entire meal is made in the Instant Pot, making clean-up a breeze!
Stroganoff, whether beef or chicken, really is the ultimate comfort food. A creamy sauce, that I could eat with a spoon like it was soup, combined with noodles, meat and mushrooms. It’s a winning combination every time!
Pressure cooking is a great way to make deliciously flavorful food in a very short amount of time. Take a beef chuck roast and turn it into this amazing French Onion Pot Roast or make the best Beef Ragu in just an hour!
Speaking of the best, this is seriously the best beef stroganoff I’ve ever had! Kurt said that anytime I ask what he wants for dinner from now on, he will say this dish!
I used a beef chuck roast for this recipe, making it a cross between a pot roast and beef stroganoff. The beef is so tender and flavorful, the sauce, so creamy and the egg noodles tie the whole thing together. The best part is, everything cooks in the Instant Pot making clean-up a breeze!
Creamy French onion dip adds a delicious twist to these ground beef tacos! The entire recipe is made in just 20 minutes, for an easy dinner!
In our house, French Onion Dip and chips are always a requirement on the menu for NFL Sundays! So like any good food blogger, I made my own French Onion Dip Mix and started making homemade dip every Sunday.
Since I now had this delicious French Onion Dip Mix sitting in the pantry, I decided to try it out on other recipes, instead of just dip!
I first tried it out on pot roast and the result was AMAZING! Seriously, French Onion Pot Roast is the best pot roast ever! It was so good, I made it both in a pressure cooker and in a slow cooker.
Next up, I made these French Onion Dip Tacos. The perfect game day food that combines easy ground beef tacos with a seriously delicious dip!
We ate them on game day in crispy shells, then I made them again for dinner during the week and served them on flour tortillas. Both totally tasty options for this seriously easy taco recipe!
Vegan Buffalo Cauliflower Tacos are a healthy, easy recipe for dinner! The buffalo cauliflower is baked, then broiled for a crispy texture. It’s then wrapped up in corn tortillas, topped with a dairy free avocado sauce and jalapeno carrot slaw, creating a totally delicious & gluten free taco recipe!
Toss some cauliflower with buffalo sauce and roast in the oven. While the cauliflower is roasting, mix up a little jalapeno carrot slaw and blend together the avocado sauce. Once the buffalo cauliflower comes out of the oven, toss it all on a tortilla and you have one seriously scrumptious vegan taco recipe!
It only takes 10 minutes to make these easy Cheesy Chicken Ranch Wraps! They’re created with gluten free tortillas and makes a delicious gluten free lunch or dinner!
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Mission®. All opinions are entirely my own.
Say good bye to the days of crumbly gluten free tortillas and say hello to soft, flavorful Mission® Gluten Free Soft Taco Tortillas!
If you thought that adhering to a gluten free diet meant you couldn’t have soft tortillas to roll up into burritos, enchiladas, or wraps, then you’re in luck, because these new Mission tortillas are perfect for wrapping and folding, and they’re certified gluten free!
Take your love of French Onion Dip to the dinner table with this French Onion Chicken Pasta recipe! In this dish, creamy french onion dip is turned into a delicious sauce and tossed with penne pasta and shredded chicken for an easy meal made in only 29 minutes!
During football season, we go through A LOT of French Onion Dip around our house! It’s Kurt’s favorite and he demands it every Sunday while watching games.
I make my own French Onion Dip Mix, which is perfect for mixing with sour cream to make the dip on Sunday’s, but it’s also great for adding to lots of delicious recipes throughout the week, like this French Onion Chicken Pasta!
Of course Kurt was more than willing to taste test this recipe three times before I perfected it for the blog! 😉
Combining a Chinese favorite, like General Tso’s Chicken with a breakfast staple, like Sweet Potato Hash is just crazy enough that it works! This General Tso’s Chicken & Sweet Potato Hash is easy to make in just 29 minutes & can be served for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
Today’s post is sponsored by my friends at Crazy Cuizine!
When partnering up with my friends at Crazy Cuizine to turn their already delicious General Tso’s Chicken into a new, fun recipe, I had to get a little crazy (see what I did there!), so I took one of my favorite breakfast recipes and combined it with one of my favorite Chinese dishes.

I recently joined the brand new podcast “Feed Me!” as a featured guest on their first episode. We chatted about ways to use your slow cooker and Instant Pot in the summer, my favorite comfort food and tips and tricks for cooking with an Instant Pot.
One of my favorite things about the Instant Pot is the fact that you can sear meat directly in the Instant Pot before you pressure cook the dish, so that you’re left with only one pot to clean up after the meal!
While this Instant Pot Beef Ragu recipe is one of my favorite meals and can be eaten year-round, I wanted to try something new, light and fresh for summer, which is why I created this Instant Pot Beef with Tomato Basil Bruschetta.
An Italian spin on a classic Thai dish, Italian Drunken Noodles are made with wide egg noodles, tomato sauce, Italian sausage, fresh basil and peppers for an incredibly flavorful and easy dish made in just 29 minutes!
Lo mein noodles and fresh veggies are tossed with a homemade General Tso sauce in this easy Vegetarian General Tso Stir Fry recipe, made in just 25 minutes!
I’m a huge fan of General Tso sauce, it’s slightly sweet, spicy and so flavorful! I first introduced my recipe for General Tso sauce in this Gluten Free General Tso’s Chicken recipe, which has been a huge hit on the blog!
Instant Pot BBQ Chicken is easy to make with chicken breasts, directly from the freezer or refrigerator, plus a bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce. Use it to make different recipes throughout the week, from pasta for dinner, to wraps for lunch!
The very first recipe I posted after joining the Instant Pot revolution in January was a simple recipe for Instant Pot Buffalo Chicken. Seriously it’s buffalo sauce + chicken y’all, so simple! The thing I love about it is that you can make a big ol’ Instant Pot of it at the beginning of the week and use it for different recipes throughout the week.
One of my tricks for creating the perfect meatball is to combine two different meats. For this recreation of chicken marsala, I made pork and chicken meatballs. When using a lean protein like ground chicken breast, you want to combine it with a protein with a slightly higher fat content, like ground pork or beef.
Turn your favorite banh mi sandwich into a pizza with this easy and delicious Banh Mi Pizza recipe, topped with sesame ginger ground pork, fresh carrots, jalapeños, cilantro and Sriracha!
A couple of weeks ago, I was really craving pizza, but I wanted something different. I started thinking of some of my other favorite meals that I could transform into a delicious pizza. The banh mi sandwich came to mind and I began to experiment!
On the first banh mi pizza experiment I placed the jalapenos, onions and carrots with the pork on the pizza before baking. The family consensus was that to be more true to a real banh mi sandwich, the toppings should be raw and added after the pizza was baked. I also did a little experimenting with the sauce and about 5 pizza taste-tests later, the perfect banh mi pizza was born!
Three cheese baked ziti with ricotta, mozzarella and parmesan is an easy 6 ingredient, 29 minute meal that is sure to become a weeknight dinner family favorite!
This three cheese baked ziti recipe was inspired by my favorite pizza at Jimmy and Joe’s Pizzeria in Phoenix. I always order it topped with dollops of ricotta cheese and it adds this amazing layer of creaminess to the pizza.
I’ve recreated that ricotta magic on these Garlic Bread Nachos and now on top of this baked ziti recipe!
Whole30 Hamburgers are healthy, packed with protein, and gluten free, they’re wrapped in lettuce and topped with a sesame scallion sauce for a flavorful meal!
One of the most important aspects of the Whole30 diet is paying attention to labels and buying the best 100% grass-fed, organic meats whenever possible.
During “Whole30 March” I’ve relied on my friends at ButcherBox to fill my fridge with grass-fed beef, free range organic chicken and Whole30 approved bacon.
If you’re not familiar, ButcherBox is a high quality meat subscription service that delivers your choice of beef, chicken, pork, or a combination of meats, right to your door every 30 or 60 days! You can also add items like burgers, uncured sugar free bacon (that’s Whole30 approved and paleo!) and breakfast sausage.
I received my first ButcherBox two years ago, in April 2016, and have been hooked ever since!
This Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin recipe with fresh pineapple is made with Whole30 compliant teriyaki sauce for a lean, healthy, gluten free, Whole30 recipe that’s easy enough to whip up for a weeknight dinner!
You definitely want to add these Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Peppers to your list of Whole 30 Recipes! They’re healthy, gluten free, dairy free and delicious!
It’s the 1st of March and also the first day of “Whole 30 March” on the blog!
I decided to share a month of Whole 30 recipes for a few reasons. I wanted to create new healthy recipes both for the blog and for my weekly menu. There have been several friends and followers that have requested Whole 30 recipes on the blog. And I realized that you could have buffalo sauce (certain brands, of course!) while eating Whole30 and then I was in!
I’ve never been a “diet” person but I do believe in balancing healthy eating along with indulgent eats for a well rounded diet that let’s you enjoy the foods you love, along with making sure you eat your peas and carrots! 😉
The Whole 30 recipes I’ll be sharing this month are not just for those on the Whole30 diet. These recipes, like Balsamic Salmon Zoodle Bowls, Turkey Taco Salad and Chipotle Chili Sweet Potatoes, are perfect for those with gluten or dairy allergies or sensitivities as they’re all gluten free and dairy free. They’re also for those of us (like me!) looking for recipes that are healthy but also incredibly flavorful and delicious.
I spent a lot of time developing recipes that fit within Whole30 compliance, but also seriously taste great, so you’ll never feel like you’re missing out on a really great homemade meal when you make these recipes!
Mexican Street Corn is taken off the cob and tossed into this incredible mac and cheese recipe, which can be served as a side dish or vegetarian entree.
OMG y’all! This creamy, dreamy mac and cheese recipe is EVERYTHING!
As the biggest Mexican Street Corn fan ever, I’m determined to add it to as many recipes as possible. I began this recipe journey last fall when I made Mexican Street Corn Enchiladas and they turned out to be the BEST ENCHILADAS EVER! I then had the idea to make Mexican Street Corn Mac & Cheese. Because what could be better than creamy, spicy Mexican street corn paired with cheesy, velvety mac and cheese?! Nothing, I tell you, absolutely nothing!

This was one of the last recipes I made in our apartment before moving into the new house. I was so excited to come home after working on the house all day to leftovers of this dish.
Who gets excited about leftovers?! Someone that has this Buffalo Cheddar Cornbread Chili Pie as leftovers, that’s who!
In one pot, create a delicious meal of German meatballs and potatoes in a creamy white caper sauce, incredibly flavorful and an easy dinner recipe!
This week, I’ve partnered up with some of my favorite fellow food bloggers to promote the “Food Blogger Winter Games”, a series of recipe posts from each blogger highlighting different countries cuisines ahead of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games.
The country I selected to cook from was Germany and yesterday I shared a delicious recipe for Pork & Sauerkraut Cabbage Rolls. Today, I’m sharing a new one pot recipe for German meatballs and potatoes. This is a great dinner recipe for all those fellow “meat and potato” lovers out there! And that creamy lemon caper sauce, O-M-G, I dare you not to drink it straight from the pan, it’s seriously so good!
These German inspired Cabbage Rolls are filled with ground pork and sauerkraut, then simmered in a garlic onion broth for an amazingly flavorful recipe!
This recipe is very special for several reasons, it’s the first recipe photographed in my new house (yay!), it was inspired by my boyfriends love of cabbage rolls and it’s part of the “Food Blogger Olympics”, an initiative started by my friend Amy to celebrate the upcoming Winter Olympic Games!
For the “Food Blogger Olympics”, each blogger picked a country and created recipes inspired by that countries cuisine. I picked Germany because that’s where my boyfriend Kurt’s family is from and he loves German food. In the 3 years we’ve been together, I’ve learned a lot about German cuisine and decided it was time to spread my knowledge on the blog!

An oven roasted herb crusted beef tenderloin is a show stopping dinner recipe, served with a mouth-watering creamy horseradish gorgonzola sauce.
Today’s post is sponsored by my friends at the California Beef Council!
It’s the holiday season and whether you’re hosting a dinner party for friends or a Christmas dinner with family, a beef tenderloin is an impressive main course for your dinner!
For this recipe, I rubbed the beef tenderloin with a peppery, balsamic herb rub then finished the tenderloin with a horseradish herb butter and an amazing horseradish gorgonzola cream sauce (seriously, I could eat that sauce with a spoon!)

Tender, juicy, flavorful pork chops are roasted in the oven, or cooked in a sous vide, then finished off with a simple and delicious cherry balsamic sauce!
Since the almighty sous vide came into our life a year ago, one of our favorite things to do is grab various meats at the grocery store, then toss them in the sous vide with a combination of herbs and spices. Four to eight hours later, dinner is ready!
There’s no recipe involved, no real measuring, just a super easy way to get dinner on the table and try something new!
Sous vide burger sliders are easy to make, with very little prep, and will result in the most flavorful, juicy burgers you’ve ever had!
Last week I joined my friends at Cox Communications in Baton Rouge for another “Cox Smart Home” event. I spent the day in the kitchen sharing tips and tricks for how to make your kitchen “smart” by incorporating WiFi enabled devices and appliances into your cooking.
One of the WiFi enabled devices in the smart home kitchen was the Anova WiFi enabled sous vide. I used this device at past events to make Steak Crostini‘s to share with guests of the event, but this time I decided to switch things up!
Since it is football season in Baton Rouge, I decided to serve some of my favorite game day recipes, like Slow Cooker Green Chili Queso Dip and Football Shaped Nutella Rice Krispie Treats. I then decided to make sliders in the sous vide, because they’re perfect for tailgating! Prep the sliders and toss them in the sous vide, remove them from the sous vide, take them to the tailgate, then give them a quick sear on the grill and you’ve got the most delicious and juicy sliders you’ve ever had in your life!
If you love Chipotle burritos, then you’re really going to love these grilled burritos, filled with fajita grilled chicken, veggies & cilantro lime rice!
I have a confession to make, I’m a bit obsessed with grilled burritos!
It’s a burrito, so that already has my attention, then you toss it on the grill to create a deliciously crispy tortilla wrapped around all of the burrito goodness, and bam, you’ve got an awesome grilled burrito!
In just one pot and under 45 minutes, make a delicious Greek Pasta recipe filled with sun dried tomatoes, ground turkey, capers and feta cheese!
I’m so excited to wrap up a great week by sharing this delicious One Pot Greek Pasta Recipe today!
This week has been super busy, but also super fun! I flew up to Sacramento on Monday to make an appearance on Good Day Sacramento and share some of my favorite Summer Cooking Hacks. I flew home just in time to meet my Mom at the airport in San Diego. She flew in from Oklahoma to visit me for the week.
Speaking of one pot recipes, this One Pot Greek Pasta recipe is one for the books! It’s SO flavorful and easy to make! I ate it for back-to-back-to-back meals last week and was so bummed when it was all gone!
This creamy, dreamy Baked Spaghetti recipe is tossed in a cheesy, BBQ sauce with shredded chicken & crispy bacon for a delicious meal made in under an hour!
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!

The Onion Fried Burger is a popular Oklahoma recipe combining half ground beef and half grilled onions for a deliciously flavorful burger recipe!
If you’ve never been to Oklahoma, you probably haven’t had an Onion Fried Burger. This delicious burger came about during the Great Depression when ground beef was expensive and onions were cheap. A burger joint in El Reno, Oklahoma created this burger, originally called “The Depression Burger”.
What was originally created as a means to survive the great depression, turned into one of my favorite burgers of all time!
Sesame ginger marinated & grilled chicken tops these Healthy Asian Chicken Rice Bowls filled with oranges, almonds, veggies & tons of flavor!
I simply can’t get enough of the current “bowl trend”! For me, it’s a fun and delicious way to eat healthier without just eating a salad every day!
But of course, I do have to admit that this recipe was inspired by A SALAD (ironic, I know!) at one of my favorite San Diego restaurants, Coffee Cup. Their Chino Citrus Salad is a combination of mixed greens topped with orange slices, carrots, bean sprouts, cilantro, grilled chicken and their delicious homemade dressing.
After eating it for lunch last week, I decided to come home and recreate the salad as a bowl!
In one pot and only 29 minutes, prepare a delicious chicken fajita pasta dish that will easily become a weeknight family favorite!
I feel like this pasta recipe is my Mona Lisa, the dish that took me three months to perfect, but now it’s a masterpiece!

We’re only one week into March and this month has already been crazy with travel! I started the month in Gainesville, FL at the “Cox Smart Home” event with Cox Communications, where I showed local media and guests how to make their kitchen “smart” using Cox high speed internet.
Now if you’re wondering how to use high speed internet in the kitchen to do more than just browse WhitneyBond.com for new recipe inspiration, I’m here to tell you, there are lots of fun ways to do so!
At the “Cox Smart Home” event I shared with guests how to use my Amazon Alexa App “Whitney Bond’s Recipe Search” which will verbally walk you through any recipe on WhitneyBond.com totally hands free! I also shared how to use WiFi devices in the kitchen, like this WiFi Crock Pot and WiFi Coffee Maker.
The event was so much fun, and I’m already gearing up to join them for another “Cox Smart Home” event in Phoenix next month!
Garlic & herbs are rubbed on a beef chuck, then seared in bacon fat, placed in a crock pot & covered in red wine sauce for a tasty Slow Cooker Pot Roast!
While the rest of the country has had abnormally warm winter weather the last couple of weeks (I’m looking at you NYC & Chicago!) my lovely sunny San Diego has been drowning in rain for the last two weeks and much cooler than usual.
The one good thing about this “Freaky Friday” weather we’ve been having is busting out the winter slow cooker recipes to warm up!
I’ve been making everything from Spicy Chicken Enchilada Soup to Thai Peanut Meatballs to Slow Cooker Pot Roast to help get us through these brutally cold winter days in San Diego. (And by brutally cold, I mean lows in the 40s and highs in the 50s! 😉 )
