Barbecue Chicken Pizza – a delicious and easy recipe for pizza night! Barbecue sauce, chicken, bacon, pineapple, and red onion layered with colby jack cheese!

Hi, hello, I sliced a portion of my finger off making this pizza yesterday.

I came very close to quitting cooking forever because that was beyond traumatizing. I’ve never cut myself while cooking. Sure, I’ve accidentally grated my thumb on the cheese grater because haven’t we all? But to just slice off some of your finger?

No.

No.

No.

If you never see bacon on this blog again, remember this post.

Hi guys.

Should we talk about resolutions? I love a new year and a fresh start and setting up intentions and goals. My current resolution list is just a bunch of tiny things that take up 3 pages of a google doc. They’re mostly like “Quit being super cheap and spend the $15 a month on Audible because you love listening to books while you cook”. Nothing life changing. Just little things that I hope will ultimately add up to make be a better person, better mom, better business woman over time.

I also tend to start eating healthier and cleaner but I think it’s more just getting back to normal. Because from Halloween to New Years, we all indulge a little more than usual, right? It’s less a resolution and more just getting back to what we were doing before we had bags and bags of tiny candy bars in our house at all times.  Click for the full recipe

Hiiii guys, happy fresh start to the week!

How was your weekend? I have a lot of stress in my life right now but I started a new book and had a killer arepa filled with shredded beef, plantains, black beans and a mountain of cheese and oh my god, I wish I hadn’t agreed to share with my kids.

I’d also promised a movie to any kid that could behave at school this week thinking no one would behave all week but I found myself watching The Emoji Movie on Friday afternoon.

Look. I know everyone says it’s terrible but no one ever told me it’s a love story! I thought it was super cute.

Stuffed Hatch Peppers - delicious spicy hatch chiles stuffed with ground turkey, black beans, corn, salsa, and topped with monterey jack cheese. Easy and healthy dinner!

Heeeey guys!

I don’t know that I’ve ever mentioned this but hatch pepper season is my favorite time of year since moving to Texas. We used to get them in Colorado but it’s nowhere near like it is in Texas.

Like, you walk into HEB and they’ve got barrels of mild hatch peppers here and the spicy ones are over there and if you want your hatch peppers already roasted, you’re in luck.

Because they’ve got roasted ones and roasted diced ones and, by the way, they’re sampling hatch pepper guacamole over there and hatch pepper cornbread in the bakery and, oh, hatch pepper empanadas right here.

There are even hatch pepper fake Oreos and I have 11 boxes of them in my freezer right now to last until next year and you can take your judgement somewhere else.

Chicken Fajitas - easy and delicious weeknight meal!
I’ve officially reached the point of summer where I have no concept of time. I hang out with the kids all day at the lake or in the woods or whatever and then come home and watch them spray each other with the hose on the trampoline all evening.
And then it’s 8 pm and dinner was supposed to be hours ago and everyone’s hangry and we need food immediately and I just honestly don’t feel like fussing with much.
So I’ve got a list of quick and easy recipes that don’t require me to keep a ton of stuff on hand and that no one will complain about.
These Chicken Fajitas are at the top of that list..
