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

Roasted Vegetable & Cornbread Stuffing

Chicken Asparagus Alfredo

Over the weekend, I was going over some old posts to get the rotten Âs and other weird characters out of them (notice a post with them still in? Send me an email so I can find them and get them out.). I don’t know where these characters came from, but they’re in a lot of my old posts. So anyway, I was going through the more popular posts and stumbled upon one called “Stuff My 3-Year-Old Says.” As I read the post, I was reminded of some hilarious things Allie said when she was smaller. With tears streaming down … Read more

Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole (Gluten-free)

How to make the best cheesy hashbrown cassserole - This simple and easy recipe is perfect for breakfast or brunch, or even for dinner. Gluten-free with a corn flakes topping for a little crunch. Use shredded frozen hash browns for quick prep.

We made this casserole for dinner last week, and it was very fine. I ate the leftovers for every meal until they were gone. It really was that good. Cheese, potatoes, crunchy. How can you go wrong? You can’t. The only snag is that this is the least healthy potato dish ever. (Maybe not ever. It’s not deep fried. But close.) It’s definitely an occasional treat, not an everyday food. But then, you’re a grownup, and you can eat unhealthy potatoes anytime you want to. Have fun.

Quick and Easy Gluten-Free Cheesy Chicken with Black Beans and Rice

Quick and Easy Gluten-Free Cheesy Chicken with Salsa Beans and Rice

This recipe was inspired by the Cheesy Chicken Monterrey that I shared two weeks ago. That recipe was part of a program sponsored by Knorr Recipe Sides. The idea was to create a full meal around one of their pasta and rice side dishes. It worked really well, and the result was a flavorful, quick and easy meal. Unfortunately, I couldn’t eat the finished dish because Knorr Recipe Sides are pasta and rice mixed together. Good for flavor, bad for gluten-free diners. The recipe is so easy that making it gluten-free was really simple. Joe doubled the ingredients for the … Read more
