Ranch Chicken and Veggies

I am all for easy meals. This recipe is beyond yummy and has all your side dishes cooked along with the meat on one pan. You can't get much easier then that. Lately I have been loving the "one pan" and "one pot" meals. Less dishes to wash after, and you get your sides and main dish knocked out at once. With little kids it can be hard to spend 30-60 minutes in the kitchen working on everything so the faster I can get everything done, the happier we all are.

Garlic Baked Salmon

This past year I decided to buy 20 pounds of Alaskan Salmon from Zaycon foods. First off, it's amazing. Second, since I bought so much salmon and wanted to eat it almost every week I have had to find some new ways of cooking it.
This ladies and gents has become my new favorite way to cook it. It's fast, simple, full of flavor, AND there's hardly any cleanup because you cook it in foil.
If any of you know my 5 year old, you know she doesn't eat anything. Like....ANYTHING. But she loves this recipe and always has a large helping of this salmon. I call that a win.

Almond Flour Pancakes

Usually I am a gluten lover. I LOVES ME SOME GLUTEN! But I have been trying to cut back a little bit and try out some different recipes that still taste good. This recipe is great. It is made with almond flour, which I love and is also dairy free, soy free, and grain free. These pancakes have become a staple in my home for breakfast. The flavor is good and the consistency is similar to a whole wheat pancake.

Bahn Mi Rice Bowls

A while back on Netflix they had the Great Food Truck Race so I binge watched it of course and was hungry all the time. One of the food trucks that sparked my interested was a Bahn Mi Sandwich truck. I had no idea what these things were but every time they made them they looked absolutely delish. Well fast forward a couple of months and a restaurant  opened up literally around the corner from my house that was all about the Bahn Mi. I am now officially an addict and wanted to try my hand at them at home.
This version is, obviously, not a sandwich. One thing that makes a good Bahn Mi sandwich is the rolls they use and I was not about to butcher those amazing bits of goodness so when I found a recipe using the same flavors they put inside the sandwich but served over rice I knew this was a version I would feel comfortable making.
One thing I love about this recipe is you have your hot cooked rice and meat served with crunchy fresh pickled vegetables, fresh raw vegetables, and cilantro (which I am obsessed with).
Guys...this stuff is awesome. I have made this recipe multiple times for multiple people who have come to stay at our house and every time I have been asked for the recipe.

Glazed Ham

I probably should have posted this recipe before Easter but for some reason I thought I had posted about it years ago. Hopefully some of you bought hams on clearance and will now be able to use this recipe next time.
I love ham. We have a small family but I still buy a huge ham every Easter season so that I can make all the yummy leftover ham recipes. I usually just buy the spiral cut hams that have that yummy glaze with them, but sometimes I opt to buy the cheaper non spiral cut ones and make my own glaze. THIS ladies and gents is a keeper of a glaze. It's sweet and has the perfect flavors that pair nicely with the ham.

Simple Thai Chicken

Guys. This chicken recipe is AWESOME! The thighs come out super moist (yes I said moist and I know many of you cringed at that), it's super flavorful, and the best part is its super easy!
I had all the ingredients right in my fridge so that was an added bonus as I loathe going to the grocery store. I'm sure I'm not the only one out there who will do everything I can to find recipes that I already have the ingredients for so I can avoid getting dressed and dragging my children out for an epic battle at the store.
This recipe came together so quickly and had so much flavor jammed into the sauce. That is one thing I love about Asian cooking. It's usually simple and full of flavor, which for me is the way to go. Even my 5 year old daughter loved it and she has become the pickiest eater in the world.

Carne Asada Fries

GUYS!!!! Oh man. I had this baby last night and had to jump on today to share it with you. The marinade on this steak is amazing and paired with the guac and fries just takes it over the edge.
One thing I have decided lately is that everything is better served on top of fries. We went to a little mom and pop sandwich place a couple weeks ago and they suggested that we try the fillings on top of fries instead of in the sandwich buns and holy smokes. It was so much better, and we all know how much I loves me some bread! So for me to say it was better on fries is saying a lot.
This recipe is simple, fast, and screams Southern California lovin. One thing I miss about living there is the amazing carne asada you could pick up pretty much everywhere. I'm here to tell ya that this is a great recipe if you want to get that So Cal vibe in your home for a meal. It won't let you down.
