How to make a quick and easy oven omelette recipe with eggs, cheddar and cottage cheese and green chiles. Makes a simple low carb, keto, and paleo breakfast casserole without potatoes or bread. Perfect for busy families for mornings, breakfast, brunch, lunch, or even dinner. Could add bacon, baked ham, or sausage for a little extra oomph, but the vegetarian version is awesome on its own.

I have always eaten a lot of eggs. Starting when I was a little girl, my sister and I would walk to Old Grandma’s house (just down the dirt road a stretch or over the hill and across the field) and eat 2 fried eggs – yolks broken and hard – for breakfast with Grandpa. Later, I ate fried eggs in a restaurant when my dad took my little sister and I for breakfast. Then, when I became a vegetarian in college, I ate a whole lot of eggs as they were a reliable source of protein. When I moved … Read more

Best Pot Roast Ever (Instant Pot Recipe)

The best healthy Instant Pot pot roast - This simple and easy recipe is quick and great for weeknight meals or Sunday dinner with a one pot gravy. Gluten-free with potatoes and carrots.

Before Joe and I were married, we used to go with my mom and sister to a local private club. It was pretty shady in a lot of ways, but their food was super cheap and really, really good. One of my favorite meals there was pot roast. Their pot roast reminded me of my mom’s from my childhood. (She had pretty much stopped cooking by that time.) It was tender and flavorful, and it was accompanied by mashed potatoes with copious amounts of gravy. The recipe below makes an amazing, tender, and flavorful pot roast, too, though it suggests … Read more

Southwest Chicken and Rice in the Instant Pot

How to make the best quick and easy chicken taco recipe in the Instant Pot. Super healthy with rice, beans, salsa, and cilantro. Authentic Mexican recipe for street tacos.

We resisted the Instant Pot for a long time, but when my friend Jill drank the Kool-Aid and raved about her IP, I finally caved and got one. She said it would save oodles of time and energy in the kitchen, and my poor husband is seriously overworked, so I thought he would love it – if it was as amazing as Jill claimed. I brought the new Instant Pot home and gave it to Joe for his birthday, hoping he would not hate me for it. Well, he didn’t. He did a little research and totally fell in love … Read more

The Best Southwest Chicken Marinade

The best southwest marinade recipe for chicken, shrimp, or steak - Uses balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and seasoning mixes with cumin and oregano to make a slightly spicy mixture for grilled chicken. It's awesome and delicious!

We joined a pool this year for the first time ever. It’s a magnificent pool with a large green space, lots of pavilions with gas grills, three pools, and a splash pad with a large water slide. We have spent many a summer day at the pool this year and, thanks to all those gas grills, we have eaten many grilled chicken breasts and hamburgers and hot dogs.  I personally prefer grilled chicken because it has the least calories and the most protein, but grilled chicken day after day was getting a little (or a lot) boring.  I don’t eat … Read more

I love spicy foods. I don’t like quite as much heat as I did in my younger days, but I still enjoy foods with big, bold flavors and a mild heat. This is one such recipe. The sauce of this recipe is what makes it fabulous. It takes the plain old shrimp to a whole new level, like what I imagine you’d get in New Orleans. I’ve never been there, but that’s what I think of when I eat this spicy Cajun shrimp. When you make this, you will want to marinate the shrimp for several hours, so plan ahead … Read more

Garlic Buffalo Shrimp

I eat a lot of seafood, at least three times a week. It’s got a tremendous amount of protein for not too many calories, and I just like it. I also love spicy foods. When I was young, I thought the spicier, the better, but in my old age {cough} I prefer things a little on the milder side. Still, I like big, bold flavors, and this garlic buffalo shrimp has just that. Even with the spicy hot sauce in the recipe, I like to sprinkle extra over my shrimp and serve them with a puddle of blue cheese salad dressing … Read more
