My Chicken and Black Bean Green Chili Rice Skillet makes the perfect quick and simple weeknight dinner!
I am always looking for quick and simple weeknight dinners and this one I developed last week was a huge success. We love Mexican dinners every week and this was a great addition to add to my rotating menu options.
You can use a rotisserie chicken to save yourself some time, or if you have time I highly suggest grilling up my Taco Lime Chicken. We used it for this recipe and it was the perfect addition with the spices in the rice.
Break out your cast iron skillet and try out this zesty chicken and rice skillet this week!
Whip up my Cheesy Sausage Skillet Lasagna for your family this week! Quicker than traditional lasagna with the same irresistible flavors!
Had so much fun with this skillet lasagna last week with my mom. Her and my Dad come over a couple times a week for lunch and to play with Pax, then I snag my mom in the kitchen with me to help me cook and bake, lol! One of the perks of moving back home to AZ
Break out your cast iron skillets and lasagna ingredients for a great weeknight dinner the whole family loves!

My Brownie Red Velvet Gooey S’mores Bars are fun, festive and irresistible! Perfect for Valentine’s Day!
I can not get over these brownie bars. I literally had to get them out of my house as fast as possible because there was no stopping me from munching on them all day! The bottom layer is brownie then graham cracker, chocolate chips, marshmallow, sweetened condensed milk and finally a red velvet cookie layer!
Seriously, make these. You won’t be sorry, lol!

My Brown Butter Cinnamon Sugar Cookie Bars will make anyone’s day a little brighter!
I fell in love. With these cookie bars!!! Brown butter, sweet cinnamon and sugar, oh my!! This dough was literally deadly. I kept going back for little tastes.
Now, you will need to find some cinnamon chips. I know some grocery stores sell them, but many don’t. Keep your eyes out for them. If you are not having any luck, I found some on Amazon you can order, and trust me they are worth every penny!

I have been making pizza for a couple weeks now and cannot stop! I used to stock up on store-bought dough from Trader Joe’s like it was going out of style. I still love it, but there’s something about making your own pizza dough in your kitchen that can’t be beat!
My recipe could not be more simple to prepare. No waiting for the dough to rise, it’s literally done in about 15 minutes.
So excited for you to make your own dough for your family, not only does it taste incredible, your house smells like a dream too!

I love making soup in the winter…well actually all year long My soup is ready from start to finish in about 10 minutes.
The ultimate creamy tomato soup without the guilt. I used Greek Yogurt today for a light and fabulous soup. I topped each bowl of soup with a scoop of a simple cheesy orzo (don’t worry, it’s just a touch of cheese). Adds great texture to the soup.
