Balsamic Glazed Steak Rolls

These little guys won't disappoint! I promise you that. They taste as good as they look, maybe even better because I am not the best photographer.
These little roll ups do require a little bit of work so this one will need to be saved for a day when you just feel like being in the kitchen for a little while. BUT I love the fact that there are tons of veggies rolled up into the meat, so I don't personally feel like I need to cook an additional vegetable side. I think these rolls are great with or without the balsamic sauce, and sometimes I even cheat a little and just buy some balsamic glaze from the grocery store just to save some time and effort.

Chicken Enchiladas

Okay guys...this recipe here...is A-MAZE-ING!! I thought I liked enchiladas before, but after having this recipe I literally don't know if I can go back to my other recipes. This is by far the BEST wet, red, chicken enchilada recipe I have ever come across.
The reason this recipe is so different from others I have tried is the sauce.
THIS ENCHILADA SAUCE is to die for! It's homemade, so yes, it takes a little more effort then just dumping the red deliciousness out of a store-bought can, BUT, it is absolutely worth every additional second it takes to make it.
*Quick tip* I will usually make a double or triple batch of the enchilada sauce alone and freeze it in recipe sized portions so that I don't have to make it from scratch every time. This way you only have to go to the effort of making it from scratch once every few times.

Drunken Italian Noodles

This recipe is AMAZING! It is fast and easy to make which is great for a weeknight or weekend meal. The longest part is prepping your vegetables.This recipe has all your veggies, meat, and carbs all in one dish so really you can't beat that. One of my favorite parts about this dish is using fresh noodles and herbs. I never realized just how much better fresh noodles are vs. boxed dried noodles from the store are until I had this dish. BIG DIFFERENCE!
Now I've never been to Italy so I cannot verify if this truly is "Italian" but it has good flavors nonetheless.

Panzanella Style Salad


Okay I know this doesn't look like your typical Panzanella because I didn't slice up the stale bread and incorporate it into the salad, but I've adapted this recipe to how we like it and called it Panzanella for so long now that I don't know what else to call it. So please don't criticize the name if you know your stuff. You can still chop up your bread and put it in the salad so it is traditional, I just don't like to because I like having leftovers.
This recipe we have been using for YEARS! At first, this was a "branching out of our comfort zone" recipe, but now it is a staple at our house.
One thing I like about this recipe is if you have leftovers (the main reason I don't like adding the bread to the salad) is that it tastes great the next day cold or slightly warmed up.

Sweet Coleslaw

This coleslaw is fan freakin' tastic! Definitely my go to recipe.
This is a sweet coleslaw, which I personally like a lot better then those hard core coleslaws you buy at the store.
I have made this recipe many many times now and love it just as much as I did the first time. This is a great side dish that takes very little time to pull together (as long as you let it sit in the fridge) and goes with just about everything! My personal favorite thing to serve this with is my Shredded BBQ Chicken Sandwiches.

BBQ Shredded Chicken Sandwich

This is a super easy recipe. Some of the ingredients are a little weird for a typical BBQ, but I'll tell you what....THEY WORK! Shred the chicken and put on sandwiches, serve it over a salad, or leave it whole! It's good no matter how you eat it. Just get it in your belly!!!
I have made this recipe many times for family and friends whenever they have stayed with us, and every time I have been asked for the recipe. The best part about it is that it's made in the slow cooker, so you don't have to spend a lot of time at dinner getting it ready. I like to pair my meat up with my favorite Sweet Coleslaw recipe. Enjoy!

Lettuce Wraps

You know that you have made a good meal when your spouse says (after taking it for leftovers the next day) that this recipe should make it into our regular rotation. Yep, its that good. Not only does my husband love it but the kids gobble it up as well so WIN.
It's crunchy and flavor packed, and healthy! How much more do you need really?!
This dish came together extremely fast. Seriously, it took maybe 15 minutes from the minute I started chopping up ingredients till the time it was done! That's my kind of weeknight meal.
